The PS’ crystal ball racism based on selective scenarios

by , under Enrique Tessieri

With the parliamentary election about 10 months away in April 2023 and a disastrous county election showing and equally depressing opinion poll results, it’s clear that the far-right Perussuomalaiset (PS)* party is desperately trying to connect with voters.

One example of these underhanded tactics is a proposal by the PS to close the border with Russia in case of hybrid threats coming from Moscow.

Haven’t you wondered how parties like the PS fear-monger? It’s like they have a crystal ball to justify their racism by constructing selective scenarios.

In such stories coming from the PS, one must dig deeper and find out what is behind the proposal.

PS chairperson, Riikka Purra, claims that the measure is to guarantee the security of white Finns. OK, she does not mention white Finn, but that is what she means.

Thus, we see with the PS proposal r message: asylum seekers from Muslim and African countries threaten Finland’s white culture and society.

Purra, who heads the administrative committee of parliament, threatens to give the government’s proposal would fail to pass. In the face of the PS’ 38 MPs. the vote would not get a two-thirds majority.

Suspending the right to seek asylum, or just confining it to the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, is not only a human rights violation but a political prank by the PS to further their election campaign in April. The EU has also stated that suspending asylum applications is illgeal.

Everyone is aware that the aim of closing the border is part of the PS’ zero asylum seeker goal.

Parroting one of the EU’s most anti-Muslim racist countries, Denmark, Purra has, like the former party leader Jussi Halla-aho, had a pipedream of halting all asylum seekers from Muslim and African countries.

The latest attempt to halt indefinite asylum applications on the Russian border does not explain why countries like Poland, which used force to turn back asylum seekers from regions like the Middle East, have permitted 5.094 million Ukrainian refugees to flee their war-torn country.

The Ukrainian refugee example sheds light on the racism and double standards of the PS. Thus the party’s calls to be able to halt asylum seekers are only a pretext to further their far-right anti-Muslim agenda.

The latest proposal by the PS is a political stunt that has nothing or very little to do with our security in Finland.
