At this moment all I can feel is...

...I don't want to live in a country where shop staff do not do this.

German censorship?
It sure is available here.
All sorts of 'connections' between Japanese and Finns, and other neo national socialist propaganda. The description, 14/88, is a reference to a passage in Mein Kampf. (searced, didn't know before)
The song is by finnish prog folk band Tenhi. (after searching the words)

Oh - those politicians are quite good with their filters, aren't they? It is "racist" material in a sense, but of the kooky type - it was an attempt to claim that the Japanese were white with "evidence". I could dl it and mirror the flv if you're interested - it really is quite funny in a bizarre irrational way.

That video isn't even nearly as bizarre as the 6th page of comments on that video- a couple of asian people arguing in horrible English, using profanity that doesn't even make sense.
Even if there is a connection, it's so small to be negligible. And did they say Finnish and Japanese are related? Other than some phonetic similarities, there is no confirmed relation, other than what the maker of the video made up.  ::)

The Ainu thing is beyond ridiculous, as a minority they were long since absorbed by the Chinese-by-way-of-Korea ancestors that form the Japanese population nowadays. I'm not sure what the deal is with so many Japanese people being unable to accept an obvious common ancestry with their neighbours who look almost identical to them - it's a strange kind of delusion. I've seen "theories" put forward that Japanese people developed from apes somehow magically on their own, un-touched by Korean cooties ::)

I don't want to put you to work but if you have the time...and if you think it's something that I would....well, what? Enjoy? Get a laugh out of?

It's not outstanding I guess, but it's healthy to be reminded that a sizable fraction of this planet is completely insane. Usually I get my fix from the Scientology/Reptilian, etc videos that rise to the surface, but it's nice to have a change of pace. The music and random photo of a black metal musician in the middle give a particularly bizarre edge.

Since I surf the internet every day I find plenty of reminders how insane it is out there.

I understand now why I couldn't watch it. Anything connected to Nazi propaganda is outlawed...and perhaps for good reason. I'm torn between my belief that everyone should have the right to freedom of expression and the realization that a certain type of expression can lead to horror.

What is really funny (not funny, but you know what I mean) is that these nut cases try to make a genetic connection to prove purity and brotherhood but overlook the fact that all of us are descendants of the same stock. All human beings are related.

Indeedie, and by focusing on biology they basically harm the "culture" they are supposedly trying to preserve anyway. I am genetically not at all English (no need for fancy family trees for that, my parents/grandparents lived elsewhere), and yet identify with and understand this country more than most of the native population.
