If you thought that President Trump was alone in driving leftists batshit crazy, allow me to introduce you to Brazil’s just-inaugurated President Jair Bolsonaro.
Staunchly conservative, pro-life, small government, and against the legalization of homosexual marriage, Bolsonaro’s winning coalition party’s motto is Brasil acima de tudo, Deus acima de todos (Brazil above everything, God above everyone).
Needless to say, the losers over at the heavily communist-inspired Partido dos Trabalhadores (PT or Worker’s Party), are less-than-thrilled to see “The Trump of the Tropics” win the presidency.
Even better, the recent proclamation from Comandante-em-Chefe Bolsonaro to fire all the communists in Brazil’s federal branch must have them completely losing their collective shit.
In this case, I think Bolsonaro just may have out-Trumped Trump.
As reported by Frances Martel of Breitbart.com;
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s chief of staff Onyx Lorenzoni told reporters following a cabinet meeting Thursday that Bolsonaro intends to fire any “communists” who work for the government currently, contending that those holding opposing ideological views to the new government cannot properly execute its goals.
Bolsonaro, who defeated the socialist Workers’ Party (PT) candidate Fernando Haddad in October’s run-off presidential election, ran a campaign vowing to eradicate Marxist thought from the government and from Brazil’s schools and spearhead a movement of small-government conservatives in Latin America who opposed the ideologies of the region’s dictatorships, Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua.
“Society said ‘enough’ to socialist and communist ideas which, in the past 30 years, brought us to the chaos were are living today,” Lorenzoni told reporters, explaining that this mandate made it necessary to remove Marxists from top positions in the government according to the Spanish news agency EFE. To accomplish this, the Bolsonaro administration will begin a review of some of the highest-ranking officials.
Not the first time the Western press has attempted to demonize him, The Times of London referred to the newly-elected Brazilian leader as “a dangerous’ populist.”
Not quite done yet, The Times also abandoned any and all pretenses of journalistic objectivity when they claimed that the Brazilian people as “Voters tired of violence and corruption are lining up behind a right-wing nationalist…”
Then again, one could also take that as one hell of a compliment.
In the same British article, Bolsonaro once told a female politician that she was “too ugly to be raped”. Who knew Rosie O’Donnell finally made good on her promise to leave the United States?
Another Western publication (this time, reporter Brian Winter ofThe Americas Quarterly) decided to open their screamingly biased article not by attacking Jair Bolsonaro, but instead, his son Flávio;
It was a sunny Tuesday morning in Rio de Janeiro, and Flávio Bolsonaro, the son of Brazil’s arch-conservative presidential candidate, was patiently explaining to me when torture is okay.
“I’ll give you an example,” he offered. “I have two small daughters, five and three. If a criminal kidnaps my daughter and starts sending a piece of ear, a piece of finger to my house, and the police catches one of the criminals from that gang of kidnappers, and if he doesn’t tell where she’s being kept — I’m going to volunteer to torture that guy!”
Winter goes out of his way to portray torture under those circumstances as a bad thing. One solid thing I took away from Winter’s article, it would certainly be a terrible thing to be one of Winter’s kids, and they relied on dear old dad to do everything in his power to rescue them.
If it were me, a ballpeen would fill the bill.
