Finns Party MP Olli Immonen's Friday night Facebook post calling for a fight against "the nightmare of multiculturalism" is not the first time that his views have caused offence.
In June 2015 he posed with the Finnish Resistance Movement for a group photo at a memorial for Eugen Schauman (1875-1904) a Finnish nationalist and nobleman who assassinated Governor-General Nikolai Ivanovich Bobrikov in 1904. (At the time, Finland was a Grand Duchy of Russia before achieving independence in 1917.)
The Schauman memorial event was organised by Suomen Sisu, a Finnish association that defines itself as nationalist, patriotic and immigration-critical. According to Immonen's website, he is the chairman of Suomen Sisu.
Finns Party Parliamentary chair Sampo Terho told Yle that following the event they had a very serious discussion.
Immonen has previously suggested compiling lists that indicate the ethnicity of those living in Finland.
Oulu-based Immonen received 4,964 votes in the 2015 parliamentary elections. The 29-year-old is the Finns Party representative on Yle's supervisory board. Before becoming an MP, he worked as a security guard.
