I usually don’t talk about politics on here, but I been keeping up with the elections in Brazil. Jair Bolsonaro was declared the winner tonight. He makes Trump seem like Bernie Sanders by comparison.

He has spoken out against the LGBT community, equal rights for women, Brazilians of African decent, and praised the nation’s military dictatorship of the 1980s. Of course he is also PRO-LIFE and believes the nation should be ran by religious law.

At the state the West is in the inevitable outcome of late stage capitalism is civil war, which either results in facism or some form of socialism.

Brazil is fucked though. Trump is a New York Liberal who is a populist. This guy is a legit hard right fascist. Destabilization soon.

I have a friend who is on the Left who is in Brazil and determined to struggle despite the loss. I just spoke with him. I admire him but I fear for him. He is a young teacher with a heart of gold and not an enemy in the world.. I speak and write Portuguese fluently and I have known many Brazilians. I had older friends who struggled against the dictatorship that began in 1964 after the AI-5 was imposed. All are now dead, one chose to live in Portugal after Dilma was impeached. He suspected this would come to pass.
I have no words to make things better. I can only hope that more powerful forces in the FAB put a leash on Bolsanaro but it is a very thin hope.


Pois, eu me sinto tão ruim que não consigo me expressar adequadamente em qualquer idioma.
Tchau, gente boa.

He was actually stabbed just once through the side of what looked liked his lower abdomen. The video is on the internet. He lost 40% of blood and it’s likely he could have died had he not received immediate medical attention. He did appear to be in pain, though, but I’m sure the pain would have happened after the knife had left his body and before his pain receptors had been awoken. Had he taken aspirin beforehand, and some prescription strength painkillers, he would have lost more blood and felt less pain. Food for thought...

Brazil is a fucked up country, full of gangs and widespread corruption and easy women, im in Portugal where there are thousands of Brazilians that came here to find a better life and escape the widespread violence and corruption in their country, here in Lisbon Bolsonaro won with a 65% margin.

im not in favour of extremism of any kind, but if even the far right cant do something about the gangs and widespread corruption and impose good moral values on women and men..Brazil will be a hopeless country, no one will ever fix this country's problems

in 2016 a 16 yr old teenage girl was gang raped by a group of up to 33 men in Rio de Janeiro ... what a fucked up country

Brazil is the murder capital of the world with about 60k murders a year ! Only about 10k suicides a year though.

It's a catholic country. Don't think you can really trust their suicide statistics...

I learned about him from watching an episode of Last Week Tonight. The negative response that John Oliver got from Brazilians made me think about democracy and my belief that human beings are horrible at picking lessor evils. Americans aren’t much better than Brazilians when you think about the fact that many of them still believe that Hillary would have been a worse option than Trump. And what do you do when all of your options are horrible? That appears to be the reason why Bolsonaro was elected.

It’s all so depressing. Another reason to CTB.
