Perussuomalaiset (PS)* substitute councilman for Helsinki, Olli Sademies, tweets that he was taken down from Facebook due to an identity check. If this is true, we should see Sademies back on Facebook soon with his racist comments about Muslims and Africans.
A warning: Facebook and Twitter are hostile places for migrants and minorities because a lot of the racism we see in society originates from these two places. Marshall Niles complained to Facebook about Sademies’ recent post about a pig’s blood spray for Muslims.
Were there others who sent similar complaints? We don’t know. But we do know that Sademies has a lot of people who dislike what he posts.
Why would Facebook want to verify Sademies’ identity now if they do that shortly after the person begins using the social networking service?
Writes Marshall Niles, who reported Sademies: “Ironically, for a man who is so blatant and outspoken towards his pig blood sterilization erotica, he seems to be embarrassed to tell his minions that his Facebook was deactivated for violating its community standards, which clearly state “No Racism/ No attacks against a group of people based on caste, color, creed, sex etc”…
We hope that Facebook understands that posts by a politician like Sademies should not be tolerated because they fuel hatred and prejudice. A new James Hirvisaari has resurfaced from the PS and his name is Olli Sademies.
Sademies has been on the warpath against Muslims and Africans. In May he wrote on Facebook that those Africans who have three children should be sterilized. On Monday he resurfaced attacking Muslims by suggesting a “business idea” to create a pig’s blood spray that would be used against Muslims.
Sademies tweets that his Facebook page has been taken down due to an identity check.
Migrant Tales tweets back: What’s the [real] reason why you were taken down from Facebook?
Thank you Toiset Soundit for the heads-up!
* The Finnish name of the Finns Party is the Perussuomalaiset (PS). The English-language names adopted by the PS, like True Finns or Finns Party, promote in our opinion nativist nationalism and xenophobia. We therefore prefer to use the Finnish name of the party on our postings.
