What is wrong with Finland? Just because of 221,900 immigrants, which account for about 4% of the population, and since only about 8% of those live in Finland on humanitarian grounds, a party like the PS is on the warpath poisoning the air and soiling our good names.
Their warpath, like the new government’s immigration policy, is a farce.
Racists who spread urban tales about migrants and minorities act in the way that racists have acted throughout the ages. Their ultimate aim is to destroy you. They do this by relegating us to second- or third-class members of society.
Even some white Finnish seven-year-old children are taught this by their families.
I spoke to a teacher’s aid recently who was telling a seven-year-old pupil that he had to do something. The pupil responded: “I don’t have to follow your orders because you are only a teacher’s aid and a foreigner.”
Where do children learn their racism? One breeding ground is the family.
Adults in parties like the PS spread intolerance with the help of urban tales like gang rape stories, which the police have warned are mostly made up. Why do they make up such stories about people who want to live in peace and get on with their lives?
Because they are sick with hatred like part of the Finnish public that agrees with such politicians because they are just as racist as them.
The police state that many gang rape cases are made up. Read full story (in Finnsh) here.
It’s promising that we have people like Swedish People’s Party MP Eva Biaudet challenging and questioning racism as many others in this country.
You cannot challenge racism with kind words or that becoming a mamu, or Uncle Tom, will do the job. It will only make matters worse for the majority of migrants and multicultural Finns in this country.
Ethnocentricity and racism distort people perception about themselves. Such politicians and parties like the Perussuomalaiset (PS)*.
I am confident that the more we expose this huge lie about us that the PS feeds shamelessly the public and media its anti-immigration wing will come down in flames. They will be remembered how Finland copped out and sucked up to their hateful rhetoric.
By victimizing and scapegoating minorities with outright lies will not only harm us but Finland and the PS in the end.
You cannot build anything sustainable on outright lies in the form of urban tales.
* The Finnish name of the Finns Party is the Perussuomalaiset (PS). The names adopted by the PS, like True Finns or Finns Party, promote in our opinion nativist nationalism and xenophobia. We therefore prefer to use the Finnish name of the party on our postings.
