Migrant Tales had decided in April to ditch the English-language name “True Finns” for the Perussuomalaiset (PS) party because it was a horrible translation. By calling a party “True Finns” one is insinuating that those that don’t support this right-wing populist party are “phony Finns.” The new English-language name, The Finns, stoops even lower.
There is a way to put an end to the manipulation and nonsense of a party like the PS when it comes to a name like “The Finns.” Boycott it and refuse to use it.
Over 9,000 people have signed a petition on Facebook about “The Finns.”
I recommend that foreign journalists throughout the world follow what is done on Migrant Tales. We call Timo Soini’s party the Perussuomalaiset, or PS.
It’s that easy.
