Comment: Fascism through the back door? That’s what it looks like, according to an article by Helsingin Sanomat, which shows that a number of prominent True Finns candidates belong to Suomen Sisu, an associaton that follows the ideology of the Mussolini-inspired IKL of the 1930s, former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duken and the Nazi racial ideology of Alfred Rosenberg.
Rosenberg, who was tried and hung after being sentenced for crimes against humanity in Nuremburg, is the antithesis of multiculturalism. An architect, he became a pseudo philosopher on race. His argument in “The myth of the 20th century” was that for the Aryans to reach greatness they had to expel all the Jews from Germany.
Rosenberg was also involved in much of the “ethnic cleansing” programs in Nazi-occupied Russia.
You can find Duken’s writings in the neo-Nazi Kansallinen Vastarinta webiste.
One of the aims of Suomen Sisu is to “save” Finland from multiculturalism and stop different cultures from “mixing.”
As the April 17 election nears, more newspapers are starting to take a more critical view of the True Finns and especially its far-right wing led by Jussi Halla-aho and his followers.
The True Finns have been strangely quiet in the past weeks. Be ready for more revelations about some True Finns’ candidates.
What the cat will bring in won’t look pretty at all.
