Where is Finland heading and why is the media silent to the new attack of racism by the Perussuomalaiset (PS) Youth?
A black couple is smiling happily at their newborn child. The PS Youth ad reads: “Vote for the Perussuomalaiset so that Finland won’t look like this.”

The PS Youth, which is part of the PS and the country’s second-largest party in parliament, does not have any problem is promoting and spreading racism.
Even the logo of the youth organization denotes some white supremacist tribe mixed with nostalgia for a carefree past that never existed except for war and genocide.
If you read Finnish, I recommend Sakari Timonen’s latest blog entry that raises the same points.
Indeed, there is always the danger of spreading such a toxic message by republishing. The aim of the PS Youth is clearly to raise attention with their extremism and ethnic ultranationalism.
All of this is the hostile environment that is fuelled and spread with tax-payers money.
The only politician who spoke out against the ad was Li Anderson of the Leftwing Alliance. All the rest are quiet, like Finland’s media that rarely if ever write about how racism is threatening our institutions and the Nordic way of life.
* The Perussuomalaiset (PS) party imploded on June 13, 2017, into two factions, the PS and New Alternative, which is now called Blue Reform. In the last parliamentary election, Blue Reform has wiped off the Finnish political map when they saw their numbers in parliament plummet from 18 MPs to none. A direct translation of Perussuomalaiset in English would be something like “basic” or “fundamental Finn.” Official translations of the Finnish name of the party, such as Finns Party or True Finns, promote in our opinion nativist nationalism and racism. We, therefore, at Migrant Tales prefer to use in our postings the Finnish name of the party once and after that the acronym PS.
