Now you see Riikka Purra, Ville Tavio and Sebastian Tynkkynen, now you don’t

Tero Ala-Tuuhonen is not a nice guy. Indeed, it depends on your perspective. If you sympathize with Nazis and all the far-right BS, then he is your man.

Despite his background, there is a long list of Perussuomalaiset (PS)* politicians who like him. Is it the uniform he is wearing in the picture below, or is it his far-right rhetoric that resonates with Finland’s largest opposition party?

You will find some surprises if you go through Ala-Tuuhonen’s Facebook friends. You will find a lot of PS politicians.

According to the Jyväskylä-based daily Keskisuomalainen, some of Ala-Tuuhonen’s Facebook friends include PS MP’s like Juha Mäenpää, Riikka Purra, Ville Tavio, Sebastian Tynkkynen and Ano Turtiainen, a former PS MP suspended indefinitely.

Ala-Tuuhonen’s Facebook friends changed on Sunday. You will no longer find PS vice president Purra and PS parliamentary group leader Tavio and MP Tynkkynen on the attempted murder suspect’s list of friends.

No worries, I found two other PS MPs. Sakari Puisto and Veijo Niemi, as well as many PS municipal politicians and supporters.
