The PS will not succeed at turning Finland into a Hungary or Trumpland

TOPLINE

The greatest deterrent in foiling the attempts of the Perussuomalaiset (PS)* party’s political aims is our fervent opposition to such plans.

SOLUTIONS

What does the latter imply?

It means: voting, getting active in politics, writing, talking, debating, reciting poetry, demonstrating, going on hunger strike, getting constantly informed, busting fake news – living as if today were the last day before Finland is sucked in to bizarro’s spell.

HISTORY

The PS under Jussi Halla-aho has turned into a far-right party that spreads hatred of migrants and polarizes society. In many respects, it is not only a racist party but one fed by resentment.

Asseri Kinnunen is a shameless politician who destroyed the PS’ youth branch by giving too many ethnonationalists and fascists a political home.

PLAYING HARD BALL

In the message below, Kinnunen, who has been pictured in fascist attire from the 1930s, states: “HEY! Do you want to oust [Prime Minister Sanna] Marin’s government? Do you want @Halla_aho as prime minister? Join and help us. We need you! The video will tell you why you should become a candidate [for city council].”

These hopes by the PS as well as other campaign promises that will be broken after election day.

Finland will hold municipal elections on April 18, 2021.

Just like the PS has become bolder with its racism, it has simultaneously shown its true far-right and white supremacist colors.

Let’s give the PS and other likeminded parties hell!
