Perussuomalaiset (PS) MP James Hirvisaari has been caught once again with his hand in the extremist cookie jar. Lahti-based Etelä-Suomen Sanomat reports that Hirvisaari had uploaded a Nazi video years ago that glorifies the SS.
Hirvisaari uploaded the video as ”allamarcia” but it was originally published by kingtiger88 in March 2007.
The video, which shows SS officers and tanks, plays Rammstein’s song, Sonne (Sun).
Etelä-Suomen Sanomat got in touch with Hirvisaari about the video clip. He sent the following SMS message:
”Many years ago through that Nazi video I got know this great band Rammstein. Thus there is no reason to draw any questionable conclusions since there are no war or Nazi sympathies on my part. It must, therefore, simply be seen just as a heavy metal music video.”
These are the words of an MP convicted for inciting ethnic hatred and who, with his far-right ideology, believes he can make up and rewrite history to fit his myopic worldview.
Taking into account the atrocities the SS committed in World War 2, it isn’t surprising that Hirvisaari could get a kick out of watching these types of videos.
