We hear over and over again the same anti-immigration diatribe by politicians like Perussuomalaiset (PS) MP Jussi Halla-aho, who complain constantly about too liberal immigration policy and multiculturalism.
PS MP Jussi Halla-aho would like to restrict free movement of people in Europe and tighten migration policy if elected Euro MP, according to Swedish-language daily HBL. Read full story here.
Even if the Finnish media and politicians consider Halla-aho near-invincible, he is very vulnerable. What would happen if the PS return to the single-digit-percentage league like before the 2011 parliamentary elections?
Would Halla-aho face the same fate as his ideological soul mate MP James Hirvisaar, who has been largely forgotten by the media after he was sacked from the PS in October?
In the same far-right populist style as other politicians in his dubious group, Halla-aho, who was sentenced for ethnic agitation, whines near-constantly about multiculturalism but does not offer any solutions. He does not give any solutions because he’d lose a lot of support if he did.
Much of the prejudices that Finns house today are parroted by Halla-aho. One of these is his hostility of our cultural and ethnic diversity. If he ever got enough power and backing, it would be only a matter of time when he’d expose his dark side on how to maintain Finland white. He’d suggest something that Dutch anti-immigration extremist Geert Wilders said recently.
Wilders outraged many people in Holland in March and much of the political establishment, including his own party, by telling a crowd of supporters that he would find a way for Holland to have fewer Moroccans.
It’s Halla-aho and his kind that should get with the times. Finland was, is and will be ethnically and culturally diverse.
