White Finnish nationalism and racism reveal themselves on Father’s Day

by , under Enrique Tessieri

Today people of all backgrounds celebrated Father’s Day in Finland. A Johannes Sipola, who is the chairperson for Lapland of the anti-immigration Perussuomalaiset (PS)* Youth, had another opinion and tweeted: “A happy Father’s day to all white fathers.”

It’s incredible to what lengths and ignorance some will dive in order get attention.

Sipola is a good example of the racism that inflicts Finland today.

  Here, Johannes Sipola wishes only white Finns a happy Father’s Day.
And continues: “The issue boils down to the survival of the Finns [in the face of ever-growing cultural ethnic diversity in Finland]. All types of misguiding ads about multiethnic families is only a way to cover up the takeover of white Finland.”
“Many ads, [TV] series and movies give the impression that marriages between different races is peaceful. For example, mixed-race marriage in the United States is a bit under 3.5%. At the most it has reached over 4%.”
Of course [multi-ethnic marriages] do harm. I don’t want that [white] Finns will be replaced by other [ethnic] groups. I love Finns above all and in my opinion, we have a right to live and exist.”


The Perussuomalaiset (PS) party imploded on June 13, 2017, into two factions, the PS and New Alternative, which is now called Blue Reform. Despite the name changes, we believe that it is the same party in different clothing. Both factions are hostile to cultural diversity never mind Muslims and other visible minorities. One is more open about it while the other says it in a different way. .

A direct translation of Perussuomalaiset in English would be something like “basic” or “fundamental Finn.” Official translations of the Finnish name of the party, such as Finns Party or True Finns, promote in our opinion nativist nationalism and racism. We, therefore, at Migrant Tales prefer to use in our postings the Finnish name of the party once and after that the acronym PS.
