Brazil goes fash

Only in the "minds" of the unredeemable lefties!

After being screwed over by Lula, Dilma, and now the attempts by Haddad, Brazilians know BETTER!

Endemic corruption, outright blatant theft of state funds, and unstoppable, ever-growing criminality, have pointed the way to Anything-But-PT.

He's said that he approves of the late dictatorship and will imprison political opponents.

Bolsonaro said during his campaign that “not one centimeter of land will be demarcated for indigenous reserves or quilombolas (descendants of runaway slaves)”, and that indigenous lands could be opened to economic exploitation, including agribusiness and mining.

He also promised to ease “excessive” oversight by the country’s environmental watchdog and join up the Ministry of the Environment and the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock, although on Thursday he scrapped an earlier pledge to quit the 2015 Paris deal to tackle climate change.

The alliance of fascism and neo-liberalism is alive and well.

Ah, yes! The irredeemably stupid and politically-blind post their measured and 'well-reasoned' ... "thoughts".

Just one of many reasons for AnT to cheer on unadorned fascism.

Just watching a piece on the news about deforestation to grow soya in Brazil. Says an area of savannah the size of Greater London disappears every two months!

Is English your second or third language, Green?

I ask because you seem highly confused by the meaning of the word "fascism".

Eighteen years of being fucked over by corrupt, self-dealing politicians was just about enough for Brazilians. The bullshit speeches are ignored in preference for revenge against the PT (The Workers' Party, if you appreciate the joke there).

Corrupt, self-serving politicians seems to be endemic throughout South America across the political spectrum. Is the suggestion being made that Bolsonaro will be different?

#10

Yes, because he's a fascist.

Remember South America in the '80s? That's what he wants to bring back.

It's like Poles voting for stalinism

- "South America"

+ "everywhere"

There are probably some bad people on both sides

At this rate the 'caravan' will be tailing right back to Tierra del Fuego.
