Alert! — Dangerous Deterioration in U.S. and
Finnish Civil Liberties and
Serious National Security
Threat to Both Countries
Dear Fellow Citizens of Finland and America and Members of the Greater Scandinavian Community around the World:
I have surfed the Internet to compile a list of email addresses that reflect a cross section of members of the greater Scandinavian community as well as other concerned citizens for this alert. I urge you forward this email to any one who might be interested or take supportive action.
What has recently happened to Finnish political asylum seeker Henrik Holappa in America, as described in my recently published Lone Star Iconoclast article below, is an outrage. It could happen to you some day, especially if you do not organize politically to defend free speech rights —both here in America, in Finland, and in other countries around the world.
My disappointment is magnified by the fact that I have always held Finland in high regard for a variety of reasons. For starters, as noted here: http://www.pittsburghfinns.org/FinnishCommittee.html#History, Finland ranks at the top in technological advancement and living standards. On a personal level, when my mother was in grade school in Bergen, Norway, she and other students spent considerable time during recess knitting gloves for Finnish freedom fighters during the Winter War. I have belonged to a number of Scandinavian-American societies and have always viewed Finns as brothers. (More on my own background here: http://tinyurl.com/5r3xqh and here http://tinyurl.com/5897s2.)
For additional background on Mr. Holappa, I have posted copies of his political asylum papers on the web page I have created for him at http://tinyurl.com/d5a9qj . Please investigate his background further, and ponder the following important points:
(a) The original basis of Mr. Holappa’s first incarceration in Finland was a public protest that identified the nonwhite race of immigrant gangs whose rape of Nordic women has been responsible for most of the upsurge in sexual assault in Scandinavian countries in recent decades. Ironically, some of these rapists get awarded less jail time than certain public protesters like Mr. Holappa. Yet nothing he has said would be considered illegal in America under the free speech guarantees of our First Amendment.
(b) As a consequence of his persecution and alienation in the hands of the system, Mr. Holappa has become a political radical in more ways than one, to include publicly identifying areas of malevolent Zionist influence. W. Leon Smith, the editor of the Lone Star Iconoclast has noted that this should not matter. More important than anything that Mr. Holappa has said has been the fact that he has been jailed for his opinions both in Finland and America.
(c) We see a disturbing trend towards increasing repression of free speech in America following 9-11. Please see, for example, "Thanksgiving for Thought Crime" by Capt Eric May (http://tinyurl.com/48u53j), my article "Facing a Thought Crime Tribunal —North of the Border!" (http://tinyurl.com/bjjsod) and the Rev Ted Pike archive (http://tinyurl.com/44xyoo) for the latest overview of serious threats. Please remember that anti-free speech “predators” get out of control when pro-free speech “counter-predators” become weak. We must speak out. Over the long run, when no one speaks out, everyone gets hurt.
(d) There is much more at stake here than simply individual free speech rights. For example, I work closely with Capt. Eric H. May (archived at http://tinyurl.com/5f93lb) and Dr. James Fetzer, founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, to try to prevent repeat 9/11 false flag attacks. (Please see Dr. Fetzer’s article “9/11 and the Neo-Con Agenda” here at: http://tinyurl.com/45ltba ). We must maintain free speech rights so that non-governmental volunteers such as ourselves can help deter serious national security threats around the world.
(e) All Scandinavian countries, to some degree or another, are suffering from both an increase in gang rape combined with a corresponding loss in free speech rights. Much of the public awareness of these issues has been suppressed by controlled national media. This email and other alternative communications have become that much more necessary.
Please review the article below and the links I have provided. Please also circulate this email widely.
I welcome your comments and other feedback.

respectful silence the day after the likely assassination of
for His Opinions

On March 9, while riding with journalist John de Nugent in his car on a country road north of Pittsburgh, 23-year old Finnish asylum seeker Henrik Holappa was suddenly arrested, slapped in handcuffs and leg-irons, and whisked off to the local county jail. He now faces deportation back to his native Finland, where he could be jailed 4.5 years for expressing his opinions.
By American standards, Holappa has committed absolutely no crimes in Finland. Most Americans would say the same thing about his stay in America. In fact many individuals such as de Nugent and myself would say that he is by nature honorable and patriotic.
Holappa served honorably in both the active and reserve Finnish armed forces from 2001 up until 2007, when he was dishonorably discharged for his political views. He discovered afterwards that he could not even get a job as a security guard. The state security police, SUPO, had put the word out to potential employers.
Holappa as a Finnish reservist
His immigration attorney summarized his political persecution in his asylum application dated Oct 10, 2009:
In recent years, the country of Finland has become home to many immigrants from Somalia and Turkey. Since the influx of these immigrants, the country has had a dramatic increase in gang-rapes of Finnish women. Mr. Holappa spoke out against these attacks of his countrywomen. Mr. Holappa’s political opinion was twisted by Finnish authorities to be interpreted as racist and anti-immigrant, when in fact, Mr. Holappa’s political opinions are anti-crime and anti-criminal immigrants—not racist.
On January 16, 2007, Mr. Holappa was detained by the Finnish police. His apartment was ransacked by police and his belongings thrown on the floor. They went to his parent’s house, where Mr. Holappa had once lived and searched there as well. They told his mother he had been arrested and that he was “in trouble” and warned her that if he pursued his political opinion, he would “not have any place in our society.” He was detained for a total of three days. The first day was spent in a concrete room with lights burning 24 hours straight. He was told he was suspected of writing an article and sending a picture on the Internet. He was moved into a cell and held for an additional 2 days before being released without actually being charged.
Upon his release, it was discovered that the Finnish press released his name to the public stating that he had written a discriminatory article in December 2006, a fact which is false and has never been proven to be true. The article denounced gangs of rapists still roaming the city [of Oulu], accusing him of being a webmaster of an American web site and claimed he committed a copyright violation by sending a clipped newspaper photo to a friend.
In May 2008, he received a call from a police woman asking when he could to the police station as they had “dug up” his case again. On May 20, 2008, she called him again and told him he was to be indicted for “incitement of racial hatred”, “defaming the honor of the African community of Finland”, and “copyright violation….”
Holappa immediately left for America and hoped to marry an American girl. When this relationship fell through, his lawyer filed asylum papers the day before the deadline by FedEx.
As an asylum seeker, Holappa had 90 days from his date of entry on 11 July to apply.
The immigration service received his paper work on time, but there was a small glitch. He signed in many places, but one of the signature blocks was left blank.
His attorney resubmitted a correct copy with the cover letter “Resubmission of Timely Filed Asylum Application Due to Signature on Incorrect Line.” The immigration service then issued a receipt form I-797 with a “received date” of 14 Oct.
Immigration Court scheduled a routine hearing in Philadelphia on Dec 9, 2008, which Holappa attended. It then issued a notice for a routine follow-on hearing for 21 July 2009.
John de Nugent believes that government agents planted a GPS tracking device in his car. How else could there be a police car waiting in ambush along a country road, that was suddenly joined by two immigration service cars ready for arrest?
The Feds cannot deport Holappa unless he has committed a crime. They now claim that his stay in America between 11-14 October was somehow “criminal” because of the paperwork glitch.
If true, why would it issue him a receipt for his asylum application on 14 October? Why would Holappa pass one routine court hearing, and then get rescheduled for another one if something was really wrong?
Anyone who looks at the blogs of John de Nugent and Henrik Holappa will discover quickly the reason for the official persecution. Among other things, Holappa discusses Jewish control of Finnish media, historical revisionist views of National Socialism, and the need for popular sovereignty against the New World Order.
Henrik Holappa gives a 10-minute speech before the 2008
Conference in Memphis, Tenn.
For a month and a half I have been in a house share situation where I have eaten most of my meals with Holappa, de Nugent, and de Nugent’s fiancé at the table. Holappa is a polite, stoic, intelligent young man. I have spent considerable time studying libertarian philosophy and how it can interface with the nationalist viewpoint. I have found both Holappa and de Nugent to be receptive to my views. There is no Brown Shirt revolution being plotted here for violent overthrow. In fact, there has often been some humor. For example, once I got a chuckle out of Holappa when I turned towards him and said, “Would the Finnish Freedom Fighter please be kind enough to pass the salad dressing?”
We need to stop this hysterical Obama Administration mugging of the rights of a totally legitimate asylum-seeking political dissident. Please visit the profile page I have created for Holappa at: http://tinyurl.com/d5a9qj within the “Suppressed Dissidents” section on my home page at americafirstbooks.com, This includes points of contact to make your protest against this outrage known.
