Laura Huhtasaari: The Perussuomalaiset MP with the sinister kindergarten-teacher smile

by , under Enrique Tessieri

With parliamentary elections in April, Perussuomalaiset (PS)* Vice President Laura Huhtasaari is busily fear-mongering us about how Finland is losing its identity and how Islam is on track of taking over Europe. 

Don’t be fooled by her clean looks that hide a white supremacist behind her sinister kindergarten-teacher smile.

An avid mouthpiece of Islamophobs in Finland,  she is also a blind follower of President Donald Trump and Hungary’s strongman, Viktor Orbán.

Huhtasaari has plagiarized her thesis and other people’s writings.

An excerpt of an opinion piece by her summarizes everything that she spews about migrants and minorities in this country.

She claims that the PS will keep Finland white nationalist so vote for that party in the April parliamentary elections.

Her concerns:

  1. We don’t want our population and culture substituted (for Islam/foreign ones);
  2. We don’t want Finland taken over by Islam;
  3. We don’t want people in our streets to be substituted for women and girls wearing veils.

While these campaign promises are grounded in fear and racism, it is unfortunate that too few politicians in this country want to change those very structures that make racism, discrimination and Huhtasaari-like politicians possible.

The Perussuomalaiset (PS) party imploded on June 13, 2017 into two factions, the PS and New Alternative, which is now called Blue Reform. Despite the name changes, we believe that it is the same party in different clothing. Both factions are hostile to cultural diversity never mind Muslims and other visible minorities. One is more open about it while the other says it in a different way. .

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.
