Let’s continue to expose Jussi Halla-aho’s and the PS’ big lie

by , under All categories

Just like former US President Donald Trump continues to spread the big lie about election fraud, so do Perussuomalaiset (PS)* chairperson Jussi Halla-aho and his party about the threat of immigration and cultural diversity.

Last month’s municipal elections were a disappointment for the party after it had invested resources generously in its copied “Take Finland back” campaign. Opinion polls predicted that the PS would get about 18% of the votes but could only muster 14.5%.

The PS was planning to give the Center Party a black eye but did not succeed since the election setback of the party was smaller than expected.

At a Suomen Arena discussion, Halla-aho clarified that feminists and minorities would have little say in a government headed by the PS.

“We don’t want the type of intersectional feminism thought based on caste categories where a person’s rights and right to speak to do and say things hinges on what kind of victim category he belongs,” said Halla-aho.

Just like Trump’s big lie, we should not be outraged by Halla-aho’s and the PS’ hateful message. We have been forced to hear, like a broken record, the xenophobic message for years.

If it were up to me, I’d encourage the party to show even more its far-right ideology and credentials so that voters could see the threat the PS is to Finnish democracy and our Nordic way of life.
