Radical right Perussuoalaiset (PS)* chairperson, Riikka Purra, like Interior Minister Mari Rantanen, loathes Muslims and other minorities. Slamming and suggesting that Deputy Chancellor of Justice Mikko Puumalainen is a”liberal moron,” exposes her hatred and desperation.
Purra, the one who said she’d shoot migrant youths on a train in 2008, now takes out her crystal ball and claims to be a clairvoyant.
She writes that the people coming from Russia to the border “are not genuine asylum seekers,” adding that they “have nothing to worry about and are not fleeing [war].”
But here is the question: Why is Purra so eager about trashing our international agreements that are protected, according to her, by “liberal morons.”
The answer is simple: The first PS campaign promise it ade is that the government can shut the border to asylum seekers. Thus, Purra, like the National Coalition Party, falsely misled voters to believe that her party’s get-tough stance on migrants meant also denying their right to asylum.
If she does not deliver, closing and stopping asylum seekers from coming to Finland, Purra and the PS will look weak and continue to lose popularity in the polls.
It explains why Purra and her ilk want to trash international agreements and deny people the right to asylum.
