Seems Brazil’s people may make be waking up from the yoke of Cuban propaganda. Not surprising with it’s failure right by you in Venezuela. Instead of gun control on the good people he want them to protect them selves etc.
“We cannot continue flirting with communism … We are going to change the destiny of Brazil,” Bolsonaro said in an acceptance address in which he vowed to carry out his campaign promises to stamp out corruption after years of leftist rule.
“The 63-year-old seven-term congressman has vowed to crack down on crime in Brazil’s cities and farm belt by granting police more autonomy to shoot at criminals. He also wants to let more Brazilians buy weapons to fight crime.”
You dont know anything about the guy huh?
Balsonaro has praised torture and tortures, Brazils dictatorship, Chiles dictatorship, has stated he would like a return to the dictatorship, and claimed they didnt kill enough people under Brazils dictatorship.
Perhaps they don’t want to end up like Venezuela, Honduras and Guatemala. Certainly those leftists govt have caused the death of ten time more than those old 20th century dictatorships. And Chile did quite well after their reform.
Yeah, they used urban death squads during the dictatorship years to “restore order”. Of course they got some criminals, but they also killed a lot of young men they merely suspected of being guilty. The policy was popular amongst Brazil’s privileged upper middle class as the death squads only operated in the poorest neighborhoods.
It’s the NYT, so they can’t trusted for proper context. They are far leftist. Certainly they would hate this guy. Just like they hate any right wing anti-communist. Let’s see what happens as the guy governs.
