Let’s call it like it is: The racist paramilitary group of the Democrat Party
Also, the use of that outfit is highly offensive to those of us who are trying to get the message across that the ideology of Islam itself, not race, nor where a person hails from, is the chief worry and problem.
More than likely this clown is a big welfare state supporter (& racist), who fears that his state perks will be handed over (and they will be) to someone else, because the identity driven, group rights supporting political machine now deems others more worthy than himself.
That’s what you get in a welfare state guided by master minds and geniuses who have inculcated greed (so called rights) into the hearts and minds of those now dependent on the handouts of government. They’ve created this mindset, not classic liberals and the free market.
Yle reports that a group of asylum seekers who were being transported to hastily-arranged accommodation at a former army barracks in Lahti’s Hennala district were met by a group of 30 – 40 individuals protesting the presence of the new arrivals.
The demonstrators chucked fireworks at the bus in which the asylum seekers were travelling, many of which exploded with a loud bang.
The bus contained some 49 people, the majority of whom were fleeing violence in Iraq. The group also included small children, as well as infants in arms, according to Yle’s reporter on the scene, Kirsti Pohjaväre.
Senior Constable Esa Mäkelä of the Lahti police department confirmed the number of demonstrators and said that one of them was fined for throwing fireworks.
As the bus approached the area where the barracks were located, Finnish Red Cross workers were on hand to guide the refugees to the reception centre.
Stones hurled at Finnish Red Cross workers
Yle reporters say the unrest in Hennala began roughly half an hour before the buses began to arrive, with protesters pelting rocks at the Red Cross workers as they took coffee to guards manning the gates of the complex.
However no one was injured during the stoning incident. On Friday morning three additional buses arrived on the scene. A total of 250 people are expected to arrive at the Hennala centre.
Earlier in the evening another Yle journalist, Heikki Ahonen, reported on the group, whom he said comprised mainly young men. Ahonen noted the presence of the Ku Klux Klan-clad individual and described the scene at the time as mostly calm. He also noted that officials had not intervened in the situation at that time.
Interior Ministry PS: Lahti case an “isolated incident”
Meanwhile Interior Ministry Permanent Secretary Päivi Nerg said she’s satisfied with police actions in Hennala. She added that security officials had been prepared for the possible consequences of establishing a reception centre in the area.
“The role of the police in such situations is to handle them as quickly and as proactively as possible to ensure that nothing happens to anyone,” Nerg told Yle Friday morning.
Nerg described the events in Lahti as an isolated incident, but admitted that Interior Ministry officials were concerned about resistance to housing asylum seekers.
“All of the reception centres are being placed in communities where there haven’t been many people with foreign backgrounds. These are small-scale incidents but we have prepared well for them to guarantee the safety of asylum seekers as well as other people living in the area,” Nerg commented.
A few weeks ago the Interior Ministry established a crisis management team under Nerg’s leadership. The permanent secretary said that the Ministry has so far remained on top of the refugee situation. But she acknowledged that in retrospect, all of the Ministry’s actions have so far lagged behind current developments.
She pointed out however that the establishment of a central asylum seeker registration hub in Tornio, northern Finland, had helped bring the situation under control.
