Perussuomalaiset ad stresses “us” versus “them”

by , under Enrique Tessieri

The Perussuomalaiset (PS)* ad below (in Finnish) is the pits. The only mention it makes about our culturally and ethnically diverse society is picture of a Muslim woman. All of the people in the ad are white Finns. It uses slogans like: “Let’s build a good Finland” and “the Perussuomalaiset are on the side of (white) Finns.”

This ad is further proof that the PS is a party that is against New Finns and ready to fuel intolerance in this country at our expense.

A small piece of advice to the PS: This country was never yours, will never be, because this country is ours.

The PS’ view of Finland as this ad shows is what’s wrong with this country today. Finnish racism excludes people who are different from them as these ad clearly shows.

The Finnish name for the Finns Party is the Perussuomalaiset (PS). The 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.
