THE STORY WAS UPDATED
Considering the Trump-fueled terrorism in Washington Wednesday, I ask once again the Perussuomalaiset (PS)* party the following question: Do you still “love” President Donald Trump?
With the Trump presidency making its rambunctious exit after four years of chaos and moral decay, our attention should shift to Finland. Do we want this type of government in Finland and, if so, which party would promote such a sad state of affairs?
If today’s the United States would be a reality in Finland, we would do away with the welfare state to excuse that it is every person for him or herself with mob rule and intimidation being the norm.
Under such a system like in Trump’s USAmerica, corruption would flourish and, at the cost of social equality, an important cornerstone of the Finnish Nordic welfare state.
Such a situation would flourish because the scapegoats would be the Muslims, people of color, and non-white migrants in general.
As the evil face of Trump’s administration stoops to new lows, we should ask which parties in Finland would like to install a Trumpist political and economic order?
One party that would gladly do this is the Perussuoalaiset (PS)* of Finland. They would not only make way for Trump-style conservatism and racist policies but add icing to it with Hungary’s Viktor Orbán, Vladimir Putin, Jarosław Kaczyński, and other autocrats.
One reason is that the Finnish media, which is a part of the country’s racism problem, does not care to ask the PS what they think of Trump now?
WHAT TO WATCH FOR
With Trump attempting a self-coup and showing total disdain for the democratic process, we are not hearing from his cheerleaders in Finland. Why?
There is little accountability in politics, and if Finland’s democracy comes under threat like in the US, how many would stand up for it?
I wonder what the media would write.
I’m not holding my breath.
