I agree with Ripe's ban and support Blid's desire to have a cleaner, safer forum for everyone. I think people who are talking violence and murder should be curbed and given time to think about their behavior and hopefully calm down. I think he should be allowed to come back after a cool-down period and given a chance to explain himself and perhaps address his concerns in a more productive way, though.
Claw, fuckboi, and Startale have all been seen promoting violence as well, yet they receive no penalty. Claw even wrote out the very same words using his homeland of Poland instead of Ripe's Finland, seen here:http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,3644.msg59826.html#new
But because Claw's words are assumed to be a joke or a troll, he is allowed to say them without repercussion.
If we are going to bring motivation into it, let's talk about motivation.
Let's assume Claw and fuckboi talk violence for humor and entertainment reasons ie. troll-style. I'm pro-troll overall as you know, but even with trolling, my belief is that acceptable trolling should not involve anyone getting hurt.
Thinking about Ripe and Finland, let's look at what's going on in Finland's next-door-neighbour Sweden:⚠️ THE SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT SWEDEN REFUGEES, RAPE CRISIS & ISLAMIC IMMIGRATION PROBLEM! ⚠️ - YouTubehttps://www.thelocal.se/20170208/swedish-police-officer-causes-controversy-with-facebook-post A Swedish police officer has caused controversy after he made a Facebook post claiming that the majority of the cases he deals with in a week come from people whose country of origin is not Sweden, leading to an internal police investigation of him, and even provoking Prime Minister Stefan Löfven to respond.
In the post, Peter Springare lists what he claims to be the countries of origin and names of those he dealt with while carrying out preliminary investigations of suspected crimes in Örebro, noting that what he posted "is not politically correct" but that he "doesn't give a shit".
"Suspected perpetrators: Ali Mohamad, Mahmod, Mohammed, Mohammed, Ali, again, again, again, Christoffer… what, is it true? Yes, a Swedish name sneaked its way in on the fringes of a drug related crime, Mohammed, Mahmod Ali, again and again," Springare wrote.
"Countries which represent all of the week's crimes: Iraq, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Somalia, Syria again, Somalia, unknown country, unknown country, Sweden," he added. Springare then promised to make new posts on the subject every week.
A report has since been filed by police management accusing Springare of racial agitation (hets mot folkgrupp) and he is now subject to an internal investigation. He is still employed by the police while the investigation is ongoing.
I'm sure you will agree that the rules that govern behavior during times of peace are different from the rules that govern behavior during wartime.
Sweden, who took in enormous numbers of Islamic immigrants, is experiencing severe problems, including police having to move police stations out of certain areas because it is no longer safe for them to be there. The immigrants throw rocks at journalists and attack journalists and others who enter the territories they've claimed for themselves. Swedish women are being raped left, right, and centre, almost exclusively by immigrant (Muslim) men. The police have officially issued statements that Swedish women should not go out alone at night and should start changing the way they dress when they go out. The Swedes who are aware of the problems are naturally feeling very unsafe in their own country, which is more and more resembling a war zone.
Ripe's comments are, I believe, motivated by real fear of real danger to his own country and his own people from those who would cause harm.
He said he wants "peaceful beautiful Finland" to remain safe. He feels the threat of outside forces that mean to destroy their way of life.
It is the obligation and duty of men to defend their women, children, freedom, country from threats. He is in a highly emotional state of rational fear based on real situations happening in his part of the world.
The Swedish government is one of the most politically correct in the world, and hides everything that is happening from the outside world, and their own people.
We who have lived in peace and don't fear being attacked, stoned, shot, or raped when we go out of the house, don't really know what it is to experience real constant danger from people that want to hurt us. It activates fight or flight in the body which could cause someone to write a post about killing everyone they are afraid of.
I don't agree with Ripe's words or behavior or the way he expressed himself, but I think I understand why he is saying it. And I don't think that responding with fear for his life and country and safety and way of life is more evil than speaking violence or death threats for entertainment.
