Brazil’s far-right President Bolsonaro, musical parody


This 29 October 2018 musical parody video from Britain says about itself:

A song for Jair Bolsonaro, the dictator-elect – sorry, President-elect! – of Brazil, to the tune of the Canyonero song from The Simpsons.

LYRICS: Can you name the guy who’s so far right
He challenged every single gay person to a fight?
Bolsonaro! Bolsonaro!

Well, he favours torture and dictatorship
But he won’t rape you unless you deserve it
Bolsonaro! Bolsonaro! (Bolsonaro!)

He raised his sons to never date
Black women, and now he’s in charge of the state
Bolsonaro! Bolsonaro!

He’ll send the military into every favela
He makes Donald Trump look like Nelson Mandela
Bolsonaro! Bolsonaro!

He’s the congressman who successfully cast
Himself as an outsider kicking ass
Bolsonaro! Bolsonaro!

He looks up to General Pinochet
He’s the Bullets, Beef and Bible presidente
Bolsonaro! Bolsonaro!

Former KKK leader says Brazil’s Bolsonaro ‘sounds like one of us’

FORMER Ku Klux Klan (KKK) leader David Duke has endorsed far-right Brazilian presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro, saying the former army captain “sounds like one of us.”

Support from the prominent US racist, who also supported Donald Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign, is the latest warning sign of the nature of Mr Bolsonaro’s candidacy.

Many have raised fears of a fascist dictatorship under his rule, with Mr Bolsonaro consistently praising the military junta that ruled over Brazil between 1964 and 1985.

He has faced mass opposition on the streets, with millions demonstrating as part of the non-partisan #NotHim movement organised by Women United Against Bolsonaro.

Attacks on opposition supporters and journalists have increased dramatically since September 30, including the stabbing to death of a prominent Workers Party (PT) activist and a woman who had a swastika carved into her stomach.

Mr Duke said: “He is total European descendant, he looks like any white man in the US, in Portugal, Spain or Germany and France and he is talking about the demographic disaster that exists in Brazil and the enormous crime that exists there in the black neighbourhoods of Rio de Janeiro.”

He was referring to comments made by Mr Bolsonaro in Rio de Janeiro last year about quilombolas — descendants of [runaway] African slaves — when he claimed: “They don’t do anything. I don’t think they’re even good for procreation any more.”

Mr Bolsonaro … was charged earlier this year with inciting hatred and discrimination against black people, indigenous communities, women and gay people.

Brazil is set to go to the polls on October 28 for the second round of voting in a tense presidential contest, which is pitching two opposing visions for the future of the country.

Mr Bolsonaro became the front-runner after popular former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was blocked from running by an election court.

Lula’s supporters branded the move a form of “lawfare” and a continuation of the coup which saw Workers Party (PT) president Dilma Rouseff impeached.

His replacement Fernando Haddad came second in the first round with 29 per cent of the vote compared with 46 per cent polled by Mr Bolsonaro.

Left parties and progressives have united in their call for a vote for Mr Haddad next week to stop Mr Bolsonaro from taking the presidency.

Bolsonaro is a controversial figure who has praised authoritarians and the military dictatorship that controlled Brazil for more than two decades. [HuffPost]

Brazilian Bolsonaro, a fascist, Roger Waters says


This 12 October 2018 video says about itself:

Pink Floyd ex-bassist Roger Waters declared Brazilian presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro to be the South American country’s “neo-fascist on the rise”.

Waters named at this first concert of his Brazilian tour far-right politicians similar to Bolsonaro. Like Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen, Kurz in Austria, Orban in Hungary. He got much applause.

Some quotes by Bolsonaro:

  • “I’d never rape you because you don’t deserve it” (To a journalist who accused him of rape)
  • Pinochet should have killed more people”
  • “It’s my advice and I do it: I evade all the taxes I can”
  • “I never hit my ex-wife. But many times I wanted to shoot her”
  • “I will not fight against it nor discriminate, but if I see two men kissing on the street, I’ll beat them up
  • “If one’s son begins acting kind of gay, then when he is spanked he’ll change his behavior”
  • “Preta, I’m not going to discuss promiscuity with anyone. I don’t run that risk because my children are well educated and they don’t live in the promiscuous environment such as is, unfortunately, yours”
  • “[Leftist party] PSOL is a party of dicks and faggots. I will respond to the senator with toilet paper”
  • “I would be incapable of loving a gay son. I wouldn’t be a hypocrite. I prefer that he die in an accident than show up with a mustachioed man”
  • “The day of losers” [About the United Nation’s International Human Rights Day]
  • “The scum of the world is arriving in Brazil, as if we didn’t have enough problems to resolve”
  • “This idea of oh poor little black person, oh poor little poor person, oh poor little woman, oh poor little indigenous person, everybody’s a poor little something!”
  • “Since we are a Christian country, God above all. This history of a secular state doesn’t exist, no. The state is Christian and the minority that is against it can leave. Let’s make a country for majority! The minority must bow to the majority. Law must exist to defend the majority! The minority suits itself [to the law] or just disappears”
  • “I was at a quilombo. The slightest afrodescendant weighed 7 arrobas [230 pounds]. They don’t do anything. I don’t think they even serve for procreation anymore” [a quilombo is a black settlement in the Brazilian hinterlands]
  • “Has anyone ever seen any Japanese begging? It’s a race that has shame in its face”
  • “I have five children. There were four men, the fifth I got weak and a woman came out”
  • “I used that housing allowance money to fuck people. Are you satisfied? Because that’s the answer you deserve”
  • “What debt [of slavery]? I never enslaved anyone in my life. Look, if you really look at history, the Portuguese didn’t even step foot in Africa. The blacks themselves turned over the slaves”
  • “With distance education, you help to combat Marxism” [distance learning is a Brazilian term for home schooling]
  • “Jesus Christ was not totally passive. … If he had a firearm, he’d have used it

The United States nazi site the Daily Stormer jubilantly predicts: ‘Jair Bolsonaro is about to become the Dictator of Brazil, and kill all of the faggots, communists, drug addicts and journalists.’

ATTACKS on opponents of far-right Brazilian presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro have escalated since September 30, with at least 50 assaults on left-wing groups and activists reported. The violence, including a sickening attack when a young woman had a swastika carved into her stomach, has targeted supporters of Workers’ Party candidate Fernando Haddad, journalists and LGBT activists: here.
