I would rather be a little nobody than to be an evil somebody. Anonymous
Perussuomalaiset MPs Ville Tavio and Riikka Purra are a bunch of bullies because they pick on some of the most vulnerable people of our society, in this case, Muslim women who want to wear burkinis.
Migrant Tales is not a vulnerable group, and we will say it in plain English: Both Tavio and Purra are Islamophobic opportunists.
Both of these far-right hotheads post on their Facebook wall that they have sent a written question to parliament complaining why the burkini is now at public swimming halls.
The written question comes from a non-discrimination ombudsman decision that deemed burkini prohibition at swimming halls discriminatory.
Both Tavio and Purra are sad examples of what is wrong with Finland.
Despite their kicking and bitching about migrants, and especially people of color, there is nothing that they can do to stop Finland from becoming ever-culturally diverse.
We will not forget their hateful language and we will ensure that our children and grandchildren never forget as well.
*A direct translation of Perussuomalaiset in English would be something like “basic” or “fundamental Finn.” Official translations of the Finnish name of the party, such as Finns Party or True Finns, promote in our opinion nativist nationalism and racism. We, therefore, at Migrant Tales prefer to use in our postings the Finnish name of the party once and after that the acronym PS.
