Terrorists claiming to be protesters stormed Brazil’s Congress, Supreme Court, and Presidential Palace over the weekend in order to return former president Jair Bolsonaro to power, who was defeated last October in a legitimate and free election.
Bolsonaro is a member of the Liberal Party, and just as toilet water flows in reverse in the southern hemisphere, the Liberal Party is conservative. Bolsonaro was dubbed “Trump of the Tropics” because he’s that nation’s equivalent of Trump. He opposes same-sex marriage, homosexuality, affirmative action, secularism, abortion, and from what we saw over the weekend, democracy.
During his presidency, he facilitated the deforestation of the Amazon rainforest and rolled back protections for indigenous people. He’s also a covid denier who opposed quarantine measures and fired health ministers while the death toll climbed in his nation.
Like Trump, Bolsonaro refused to attend the inauguration of the man who defeated him, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva and fled his country before his term expired. Where’d he go? Florida. Go figure, right? Maybe he can hang out with Trump at Mar-a-Lago since they have so much in common. Both men have five kids from three wives and make false claims of election fraud. They’re also both racists.
Bolsonaro has referred to the people “protesting” his legitimate election loss as “the fruit of indignation and a sense of injustice of how the electoral process unfolded.”
Bolsonaro is actually in Orlando and there are now calls for him to be kicked out of our country. Maybe Ron DeSantis will deport him to Martha’s Vineyard. No?
Hey, Jair Bolsonaro, you just lost an election and instigated a failed coup attempt. What are you going to do now?
“I’m going to Disneyland!”
Representative Joaquin Castro said on CNN, “The United States should not be a refuge for this authoritarian who has inspired domestic terrorism in Brazil. He should be sent back to Brazil.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “The US must cease granting refuge to Bolsonaro in Florida.”
How about we keep Bolsonara and send Donald Trump to Brazil?
John Feeley, a former ambassador, “The United States – or any sovereign nation for that matter – may remove a foreigner, even one who entered legally on a visa, for any reason. It’s a purely sovereign decision for which no legal justification is required.”
Brazilian authorities detained over 1,200 of the so-called protesters who violently broke into the government buildings and have arrested over 400. It’s been two years since the Trump coup attempt and Donald Trump still hasn’t been indicted. I bet Brazil doesn’t wait two years to indict Bolsonaro. Hell, they may not wait two weeks.
The coup attempt in Brazil was two days after the anniversary of Trump’s January 6 coup attempt. Maybe Brazil should also indict him.

Bolsonaro: A Trump wannabe. Well, I wanna see Trump and Bolsonaro in prison at the same time. In the same place? How about Guantanamo? Neither one will have visitors there to bring them hacksaws inside fruitcakes!

Both of these criminals are Fruitcakes, so they don’t need more fruitcakes, not even with hacksaws in them. 😉
You see through me…

Sounds/looks familiar? … “Terrorists claiming to be protesters stormed Brazil’s Congress, Supreme Court, and Presidential Palace over the weekend in order to return former president Jair Bolsonaro to power, who was defeated last October in a legitimate and free election.” … Steve Bannon needs to be jailed, as determined by a countsomewhere!!

Dictators are just, rising up, all over the world right now, and we the people are, enslaved, way too long to do anything about it…
“Jair Messias Bolsonaro is a Brazilian politician and retired military officer who served as the 38th president of Brazil from 2019 until 2022.”
Clay pays very close attention to detail. The Red Hats have the number “38” on them.
Also, Google Translate is fun to play with. The signs say “STOP THE STEAL”, “MAKE BRASIL GREAT AGAIN”, and “RESTORE BOLSONARO”.
I don’t recognize the buildings in the background, and I’m too lazy to google them, but I assume that they are Government Buildings in Brasilia. 😉
According to a pundit on YT, Jesse Dollemore, Bannon and other Americans had their finger in this pie. Interesting . . .
Every time I ask a right-winger to cite a source for one of their BS claims, it’s always YouTube. Don’t do that. We’re better than them.
Jesse Dollemore is one of those on YT whom I trust, as well as Beau, Meidas Touch, Lincoln Project and Brian Cohen. I watch ALL news on YT (no TV here), so what diff. does it make?
Andy 😉 is right, there is lots of good content on YouTube. The Stupid (redundant) Right-Wingers get their misinformation from the bad content on YouTube, because they can’t read. 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
YouTube is NOT a news source and the sources mentioned are NOT journalists.
Like you, they watch the news so I don’t have to.
