Our chapter presents an analysis of anti-immigration, nationalist meaning-making in two different contexts in Finland, online discussions and parliamentary sessions. We approach this meaning-making from a theoretical and methodological framework based on critical discursive psychology and an intersectional viewpoint and specifically utilise the concepts interpretative repertoires and subject positions. We illustrate how two interpretative repertoires we interpreted from both datasets, a repertoire of gender equality as Finnishness and a repertoire of protectionism, are drawn upon in the research materials in ways that enact various exclusions along intersecting lines of gender, nationality, political orientation and race. These exclusions work together with positioning in distinguishing those who can claim ownership of definitions and practices around gender equality from those whose ownership of these is denied.
