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.
Facebook Suspension Update: There are 3 days left (ooh, we’re getting closer), so it says, in my Facebook suspension for typing the word “Taliban.” Quannah had a countdown clock for it, but it broke.
