Comment: Former Social Democrat Prime Minister Paavo Lepponen threw today a hard blow at what he called “the far-right” Perussuomalaiset MPs in parliament, according to Nelonen Television.
“It’s pretty clear that the far-right has representatives in parliament,” said Lipponen, adding that these MPs must “be isolated” and not an inch of ground should be given to them.
It is healthy and correct that Lipponen has come out to condemn this group in the PS led by Jussi Halla-aho and others belonging to Suomen Sisu association and who signed the Nuiva manifesto last year.
Migrant Tales has maintained the same concern about the PS as Lipponen. Far-right group in the PS have been responsible for systematically spreading racism, hatred and divisions within Finnish society. Lipponen said that we have seen this type of ideology try unsuccessfully to take root in Finland in the 1930s.
The Finnish Criminal Police (KRP) and Supo have classified Suomen Sisu as a “Nazi-spirited” association.
It is a good matter that a statesman like Lipponen has finally come out and sounded the alarm on these far-right PS MPs.
Entisen pääministerin Paavo Lipposen mukaan perussuomalaisten äärioikeistolaiset on eristettävä, eikä heille saa antaa tuumaakaan periksi. Paavo Lipposen mukaan nykyiseen eduskuntaan on nyt asettunut äärioikeisto.
