State media meltdown ensues…….
Two bedsheet-sized pieces of white fabric that appear to be spray painted with lettering, espousing anti-immigration and anti–Islam sentiments were hung among the trees behind a game fence along a highway.
The banners were seen along national road eight in Satakunta, in western Finland in the early morning hours on Thursday.
In large capital letters, drivers along the road saw the banners’ text: “Islam is destroying Finland,” and “Protect the children’s future, say no to immigration.”
Police said Thursday they were not immediately able to say how they would proceed in the matter.
Yle Uutiset quoted one unidentified police official saying the text is “one opinion among many, the banners might well have read: ‘the maternity allowance is too low.'”
