The DPP is an anti-migration, ethno-nationalist, anti-Islam,populist anti-elitist and anti-EU party that wants welfare only for native Danes.
The PS is the a carbon copy of the latter.
If you want to know what kind of a Finland the Perussuomalaiset (PS) want to turn the country into, take a good look at their political mentors in Denmark, the Danish People’s Party (DPP). Was it a coincidence that DPP EuroMP, Morten Messerschmidt, spoke at the PS’ annual congress in Joensuu?
Messerschmidt was charged in 2007 for singing Nazi marching songs and giving the Hitler salute in a bar in Tivoli, the major tourist attraction in central Copenhagen.
He was cleared of such charges in 2009 by a court, which forced the daily BT to compensate Messerschmidt for libel. Together with two other DPP members in 2001, Messerschmidt was sentenced by a court for 14 days for ethnic agitation. A DPP ad in Studiomagazinet claimed that Denmark would face mass rapes, violence, insecurity, forced marriages, women would be oppressed, and gang crime if the country became a multiethnic society.

Despite this outburst by the DPP EuroMP, the anti-immigration Danish populist party has its hands full with its racists and neo-Nazis, which it expels from the party regularly. Soini’s PS, however, hasn’t been so eager to weed out its racists and neo-Nazis.
Two PS MPs have been sentenced for ethnic agitation.
The end of the DPP’s pivotal role in Danish politics came in September 2011, when a left-leaning alliance led by the Social Democrats won the election.
This video clip was published before the September 2012 election in Denmark.
How did the DPP influence Denmark’s immigration laws?
- Both the Danish and foreign spouse must be at least 24 years old to live in Denmark
- The Danish partner must post a bond of £7,200 collateral ($11,600)
- The foreign spouse must pass a language and general knowledge test
- Both need to demonstrate a combined attachment to Denmark greater than to any other country
- They have to prove that they have ”actively participated in Danish society” for at least a year
- Many asylum seekers were kept in limbo for years
If the PS ever got in government or became the biggest party in the 2015 election, I have no doubt that it will follow DPP’s anti-immigration and populist path.
Despite the usual assurances by Timo Soini that the anti-immigration hardliners in the PS are ”a myth” fabricated by the media, few serious analysts believe his words. Soini, like the worst used car salesmen, is a political animal that will do anything to pitch a political sale to voters, even if it promotes greater hostility towards immigrants and visible minorities.
Mark my words: The PS would love to play the same role that the DPP had played in Denmark.
The jury is still out whether voters will give the PS such a questionable mandate.
