A picture that appeared with a story on YLE left me with speechless. The arrival of a few thousand refugees to Finland has brought out the worst in some Finns, like in the picture below that shows a man in Ku Klux Klan garb and a Finnish flag protesting the establishment of a refugee center in Lahti.
The fact that the person dressed like a Ku Klux Klan clansman is another example of how racism is learned.
The picture below is by far the most outrageous I have seen to date of a racist protestor.
Thank you Perussuomalaiset* from bringing out the dark side of Finland!
The Ku Klux Klan is getting a foothold in Finland. The picture was taken outside a newly opened refugee center in the city of Lahti, located about 100km north of Helsinki.
* 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.
