PS Ville Moisanen of Finland shows us the surreal yet ugly side of anti-Semitism and racism

by , under Enrique Tessieri

Can you believe this type of reasoning from a Perussuomalaiset (PS)* councilman from Sysmä, Ville Moisanen, who posted and removed two pictures on Facebook that insulted Jews, millions of victims of the Holocaust and a black woman posing with members of the Ku Klux Klan. 

Are you ready for his explanation? Grab on to something because you may fall flat on your backs.

Moisanen writes:

“Let’s make one matter clear. I posted a picture and other published stuff as a PRIVATE PERSON, not as a member of A PARTY, and didn’t represented anyone else. It’s totally in vain to bring in the PARTY in this matter. It’s totally a joke to mix the party in this. This can be shared. “

Hold your horses Ville Moianen. You showed pictures of Hilter about gasing Jews and Ku Klux Members about to lynch a black person…

If this is your “personal opinion” and “private stuff” it’s clear that you haven’t understood the point: What you did is utterly racist and sick irrespective if you did it as a private person or representing a party like the PS.

The PS councilman from Sysmä now states that what he published was his private opinion and had nothing to do with the party he belongs to.

In the picture on the right Hitler tells students at his cooking school that the first thing one must do is turn on the gas. The other picture, on the left, shows a smiling black woman smiling with three Ku Klux Klan members about to lynch a smiling black woman who says, “I came to Lahti and I immediately found white friends.”

The Finnish name for the Finns Party is the Perussuomalaiset (PS). The English names of the party 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.
