True Finns MP Hakkarainen gets final warning from parliamentary group | Finland | Scoop.it
 The parliamentary group of the True Finns (or “The Finns”) party decided unanimously on Thursday afternoon to issue a warning to MP Teuvo Hakkarainen for inappropriate behaviour.
At the weekend, Hakkarainen suggested in an interview with Ilta-Sanomat that gays, lesbians, and Somalis should be sent to the Åland Islands to live to see what kind of a model society would emerge.
“We felt unanimously that a warning is the right punishment. He has been reprimanded before”, said the party’s group chair Pirkko Ruohonen-Lerner.

"Corners of market squares in Helsinki are chockablock with niggers doing nothing in particular," Hakkarainen was quoted as saying.

"Sooner or later ethnic Finns will have to flee here when [immigrants] bring their own Islamic laws here. They will come from the Horn of Africa and bring over their coarse ways."

MP Hakkarainen reprimanded for intemperate remarks

True Finns MP Teuvo Hakkarainen was chided by his Parliamentary group on Wednesday for recent racist comments. The group also made public a statement condemning all types of racism, discrimination, and violence.
The declaration was based on a text written by MP Jussi Halla-aho who has been an outspoken critic of current immigration policy.
Halla-aho says that the declaration is a response to recent demands put to the True Finns. The paper was sent to other Parliamentary groups in the hope that they might also endorse it.
