QUOTE OF THE DAY: The PS is the party of the nativist racists sprinkled with anti-EU soundbites

by , under Enrique Tessieri

No matter what the far-right Perussuomalaiset (PS)* party does, no matter who it elects as its next chairperson, the shadow of racism will follow it. Even if people like Timo Soini said that the party’s anti-immigration wing was only a minor factor in the 2011 parliamentary election, nothing could be further from the truth. Like a junkie, the PS and its voters need their daily fix of nativist racism sprinkled with anti-EU soundbites.”
