The Perussuomalaiset (PS) party of the western Finnish city of Pori have come up with a catch phrase to launch their municipal election campaign: “One city – one leader,” reports Uusi Pori. The motto of the Nazis regime (1933-35) was chillingly similar to what the PS in Pori are using: Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer (One People, One Nation, One Leader).
Janne Salonen, the head of the PS of Pori, doesn’t see anything wrong using catch phrases that are poor copies from Nazi Germany.
“Hitler used catch phrases when he spoke as a leader,” he said, “we’re speaking of the city of Pori. Every inhabitant of Pori knows the difference.”
I doubt it.
Another example of how some members of the PS flirt with Nazism and fascism.
Meanwhile, the police are investigating whether or not to launch an inquiry into the Facebook posts of PS Kotka municipal election candidate Amon Rautiainen. The candidate wrote that it would be “patriotic” to kill Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen and Finance Minister Jutta Urpilainen.
Rautiainen wrote as well that Muslims should be boiled alive.
