Perussuomalaiset (PS)* presidential contender and MP, Laura Huhtasaari, claimed in her speech Sunday that populism isn’t a passing phase but will become to “new normal.” In Huhtasaari’s and the PS’ violent world that targets migrants and minorities, the MP deceives the crowd by stating this “new normal” is a good matter.
The picture below that the MP with the kindergarten teacher smile should have shown when speaking to her followers of the PS and the “new normal” should show the picture below.

While Tony Blair is a disgraced politician who led his country into the Iraqi war in 2003 by lying, his think tank, the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, lacks credibility. How can you trust a former prime minister that misled his country and the Western world with then US President George W. Bush into a disastrous war?
The report claims that parties like Huhtasaari’s are a danger to democracy. It states that populist parties “claim to represent the true will of a unified people against domestic elites, foreign migrants, or ethnic, religious or sexual minorities.”
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Her brand of rhetoric and the violence it propagates is alive and kicking in the trolling, death threats and racist harassment of people who oppose her brand of ideology. Her style of politics aim to bring chaos and to the doorsteps of new “final solutions.”
Huhtasaari’s “new normal” is violent and hostile and should be condemned and shunned by sensible Finns.
* The Perussuomalaiset (PS) party imploded on June 13 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. One is more open about it while the other is more diplomatic.
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.
