How does the Perussuomalaiset party resemble the coronavirus or vice versa?

Here are some symptoms of the coronavirus: fever, dry cough, sore throat, tiredness, headaches, loss of taste, and smell. Here are some symptoms of the PS virus: racism, Islamophobia, bigotry, climate denial, conspiracy theories, mediocracy, pro-Putin, and incompetence.

Like Covid-19, which fools and infects healthy cells, the PS virus also enters and infects institutions like parliament. The PS got a foothold in the Finnish political system by pulling fast ones on voters, spreading hate, and giving overly simplistic answers to complex questions.

We need a vaccine for the Covid-19 and PS viruses.

For the latter, the antibodies to kill the PS virus are empathy, caring, and anti-racism education based on social equality for all.

The PS virus cannot be compared with a temporary hiccup. It is more lethal than that. If we are not careful, it can mutate Finland into Hungary and Poland, or worse.

Below are some more examples of the PS virus and what it has infected our democracy from MAGA caps to adulations to Trump.

On June 4, 2019, Halla-aho tweets: “I dig him. Trump is the best thing that has happened in a long time to the United States and to the Western world.”
