Bolsonaro Wins Brazil Presidential Election

I don’t think this is a good thing.

Here’s some background on Bolsonaro, in case anyone isn’t aware of who he is.

Standard Youtube Warning.

On a side note. Has any issue John Oliver decided to make a push for resulted in a favourable result? Remember that whole Drumpft thing he did in 2016? Me either, I misspelled it. It was actually Drumpf. The point is, he failed at making that a thing, and Donald Trump got elected, and now this Bolsonaro thing didn’t work either. Good job Oliver. Good job.

How do you think John Oliver would describe Donald Trump to the world? I don’t know anything about Bolsonaro, but the source of information you are giving is about like warning that socialists are taking over with proof being a video from Infowars.

I chose a far left source. This is correct.

Do you want to address anything he said?

There’s plenty of evidence about how John Oliver describes Donald Trump.

Equating John Oliver to infowars is absurd. Yes, Oliver is a liberal comedian. But info wars? Can’t be serious.

No. Oliver isn’t a serious person. Here’s a better source on Bolsnaro:

In a June 2011, interview with Playboy , Bolsonaro said that “I would be incapable of loving a gay son,” and added that he would prefer any gay son of his “to die in an accident…”[116] In the same interview, Bolsonaro went on to say that if a gay couple moved in next door to him, it would lower the market value of his house.

In a public speech in April 2017, Bolsonaro said that he had five children, that the first four were male and that for the fifth he produced a daughter out of “a moment of weakness”.[107]

“God above everything. There is no such thing as this secular state. The state is Christian and the minority will have to change, if they can.”

So much of what’s in his Wiki was addressed in the video. Did you watch it @DougBH

Doug saw the word “right”, and must defend.


This is Brazil. 56% wanted him. The US has a tradition of separation of religion from the state. We aren’t in a moral position to tell every other place to be like here.
IF a mixture of religion and states bother you, start with many Moslem states.

Cynic saw the word “right” and immediately went into attack mode.

So we’re to start our understanding of a new and popular head of state based on a left wing comedian?

“I’m in favor of a dictatorship.”

“I’m in favor of torture. You know that, and the people are too.”

I guess I just did not know you were such a fan of Bolsonaro, but now that I think about it, he does seem like your kind of guy.

I never heard of him until this thread. I just said I was not going to take Oliver as a source for learning about him. Do you pay attention before you start spouting?

You should do some research on a politician before you start defending them. Sometimes liberal comedians make fun of bad people. You don’t have to defend.

It’s OK to admit you are a fan, you are linking your own sources on him and defending him, relax.


I did not defend. I said I was not willing to join your attack just because of Oliver, not a source I respect. And my “own source” as cynic calls it, was to go google and find the article on Wikilieaks, which says both good and bad about him.
You people are amazing.
He who doesn’t blindly join the shark attack based on nothing is defending.

Oh wow…this must have coastal snobs from San Fransisco upset. Specially after putting so much time energy and money in closing off Amazon jungle from mining and other development.
