Brazil elects right-wing president. What does it mean?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

I didn’t know much about Brazil's Jair Bolsonaro until I heard that Facebook was blocking his campaign sites. And that was a sign to me that he was an important force that challenged the establishment.

Then, about a month ago, Bolsonaro was stabbed in the street, on a campaign meet-and-greet. A leftist extremist just walked up to him and stuck a knife in him. Bolsonaro lost 40 per cent of his blood, and nearly died.

And this week, he was elected president of Brazil.

I hardly need to tell you that the mainstream media is calling Bolsonaro “far right.” But they call everyone "far right" these days.

Statistically speaking, if someone gets 55 per cent of the vote, can they be far right? 

I won’t deny that Bolsonaro is dramatic; and I think he is very right wing. His signature gesture looks like he’s shooting a gun; he has talked about a brutal cleansing that his country needs, to rid it of leftists.

In Latin America, when you’re worried about Communists, you really worry about it — it’s not a Red Scare like perhaps in the United States. It’s real: Brazil shares a border with Venezuela, and it’s not far from Cuba. Dictatorships and revolutions are not rare in South America.

His response to everything is so bold and so tough, it perhaps looks like a caricature to us, but in Brazil, in its crisis — it rings true.

TONIGHT I'll review some of Brazil's recent history and its current situation, to explain why Bolsonaro’s tough talk was appealing to over half the voters.

He has specifically said he wants to reorient his country towards freedom and prosperity — that’s the opposite of most Latin American strongmen. He says he’ll be an ally of America — that’s a good sign.

Trump called Bolsonaro to congratulate him.

Other great democracies reached out to Bolsonaro — including Israel.

I’ve just received incredible words from the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu as well as from ambassador Yossi Shelley. Our friendship ties will undoubtedly result in mutual agreements that will surely benefit both of our nations and citizens.

How shockingly new and refreshing is that from a place that had done close business with Iran and other haters before. I think that’s a good proxy for what Bolsonaro thinks about the UN, which hates Israel; and the global left; and the OPEC oil powers.

But of course, then came Canada...

Justin Trudeau and his disaster of a foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, put out a perfunctory release — not even mentioning Bolsonaro by name, let alone congratulating him. Bolsonaro hasn’t even been sworn in yet, and Trudeau is already snubbing him — and 210 million Brazilians, the fifth biggest country in the world.

I don’t yet know what Bolsonaro will be like in power. No-one does, maybe not even himself, yet.

But I do know one thing:

If you get your information from the New York Times and the CBC, you won’t learn much, other than he’s “divisive” and “far right,” and Trudeau doesn’t like him.

Then again, they would say the same thing about you, wouldn’t they...?

NEXT: Italian journalist Alessandra Bocchi joins us to talk about the crime that has shocked Italy, and the world: 

The slaying of a teenage girl who was drugged and gang-raped, allegedly by three migrants.

Robert Hurley JR…I was one of the few that predicted his win and won money for it.
I didn’t say anything bad about Trump as he can save the US from Obama’s damage, however 100 yards of wall isn’t going to get him re-elected. People don’t give a damn about moving the Embassy in Israel, and all those little things, they want a wall.

News Flash for Ron: President Donald Trump has begun construction of the WALL in SoCal! He’s also completing EVERY promise he made to US voters!
America is by far THE HOTTEST COUNTRY FOR EVERYTHING GOOD the world has ever known! ps. to the World- Your jealousy makes us laugh louder!

Keith Barnes….These Islamic Population Numbers can change rapidly, even in 3 weeks.
Think of it, you are a young male with 3 wives and everything is paid for by your Host Country so you don’t have to work; what are they going to do all day??

RON JOSEPH commented 12 mins ago.

Ron, My information regarding Germany’s population came from Sky News, yesterday
30/10/2018, but I will admit that the Red Sky News have made mistakes in the past.

Keith Barnes…Wikipedia says 5.5 % of the population in Germany are Muslims, or 4.5 million, which is still a major threat to the Homeland.

In a comment I made some fifteen hours ago, I mentioned Acid Attacks. Late last night, 5am GMT Sky News were showing an image of a Mother and her two year old Son, victims of thrown acid. All I can say about them is that they looked alike with no eyes, highly distorted faces, more or less no skin, lips like shredded wheat. A horror show from London.

When will JUSTIN TRUDEAU’S friends start to throw acid in Canada?

Another little fact that I forgot to mention in my last comment…

Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab is a second generation Muslim. Reverse the first two letters of his Sir Name.

Have been reading the comments below and would like to add a couple of facts that are of interest.

In Germany, Germans are a minority race. Islamic countries dominate the German population.

The largest voting block in the UN Council consist of Islamic countries, they rule the roost.

Before the Brexit vote was held in the UK, the then PM David Cameron stated that the vote would be final, Britain would make a clean break from the UN. There would be no turning back the results would be final and legally binding. This same PM then appointed May, with orders to get him out of the, in his opinion, bloody mess he was in. Of course nobody expected Brexit to win.
17.4 million people voted to leave the EU and that number has and still is increasing by the day,
Theresa May is doing her best to kill the results of the referendum…….. She may have a shock.

Junior won’t be civil to Bolsonaro because Bolsonaro’s victory is just one more indication that the Boy Blunder’s taxpayer funded holiday as the make believe PM of Canada is coming to an end. Junior’s far left agenda is being rejected in Europe and now in South America as well. Our Dear Leader is not amused.

Liza Rosie…You seem interested in a Free (from Refugees) Europe, so here is some possible good News.
Yesterday Salvini met in Austria with Chancellor Sebastian Kutz and some Leaders of African Countries.
( Kutz is a powerhouse as the German citizens want someone like him to run Germany, so they watch every move he makes.)

Word has been going around that the Refugees won’t leave easily, (understatement) so why doesn’t Italy and Austria PAY the African Countries to take back these men and give them jobs building their Countries with the help of Italian and Austrian expertise.

What will the EU think? you ask. I can only say that Salvini doesn’t care what they think, as these two leaders have to think of their Countries future without the EU.
commented 2018-10-30 23:40:48 -0400
Liza Rosie—-Your right, they likely haven’t deported any. You see, I was only repeating his election promise, 550,000 deportations. The estimate of 55 came from other Europeans laughing at Salvini’s promise, saying these loud Italian Politicians exaggerate and probably they will only deport 55. (They were being sarcastic)
I should have made the fact clearer that it was an election campaign, where politicians promise the world and instead make weed legal or something. Remember a US guy that promised a BORDER WALL if he won? Where is it?

Now as far as Italy being allowed to deport, I understand that if the Refugees are illegal, which I have read that they are illegal, (no papers, snuck in, murderers eg.) the EU can’t stop Italy from deporting them.

1 hour ago I said, Britain has huge problems. 20 min. ago i viewed this new Iconoclast 14 min.video where it shows the FIRST CONQUERED TOWN NEAR YORKSHIRE CALLED SAVILE TOWN.

It has been completely taken over by Islam, only 1% Whites left and has Sharia Law.

Ron Joseph posted. “Salvini and other right Politicians said among bursting, loud, cheering crowds that they were going to deport 550,000 illegal migrants. I followed up, and that number is correct.
Commenters on the sites from other European Countries said the Italians are loud, but they always exaggerate, eg. 550,000 really means 55 possibly deported.”

Ron I don’t think Salvini has deported even one yet because he is unable to thus far with EU controls. He said he wants to deport 550,000. He may be over stating any possible success, but since he hasn’t started yet , how can he be exaggerating yet? If he has indeed already deported 55, then he should be able to deport 550,000. Did I understand wrong? Is he able to bypass EU control and has he actually deported some illegals?

Mark Chadwik – Yugoslavia? How will Yugoslavia “put a wrench in his plans” when it ceased to exist as a country more than 20 years ago?

Regarding the uproar over the young women being raped, butchered and murdered by illegal Muslim migrants in Italy. In the UK that is just a normal Tuesday, no biggie. The police barely attend. “The problem is, countries are no longer controlled by their national governments”. Let that sink in. Salvini rocks, but with Italy a part of the European Union his hands are tied. The EU is a bad deal if sovereignty means anything to you, and it should. I’ve got a feeling that Salvini can stand up to the media backlash and threats with in government, but what about the legalities of being in the EU. Can he deport or not?
commented 2018-10-30 22:12:26 -0400
they say right and left but it’s more like right and wrong . The UN should be abolished it has changed into something totally different from what it was intended . Letting these a-holes control your country and tell you who you can or can’t kick out is a joke . Canada will use it to stop us from sending ILLEGALS back home .
Trudeau is as much of a dictator as Castro . Castro showed his colors not like our sock puppet .
For the 500,000 financial records why not start with all the politicians . This sounds more like a communist move not a democratic country .
Merkel is not running because her job as destroyer of Europe is complete . Macron is going to try to finish it . But Poland Hungary and Yugoslavia will put a wrench in his plans .
Rebel why do I have to sign in twice to watch and then comment ?

Ezra, you were correct about the British people knowing that their Country and therefore themselves have huge problems. For now they don’t want to think about it, (stiff upper lip as you say) More optimistic outsiders say that as soon as the Brits are at the end of the plank, they will turn around and fight in an unbelievable way. I hope so!
I have been following the Italian Election Campaign for many months on European sites and Salvini and other right Politicians said among bursting, loud, cheering crowds that they were going to deport 550,000 illegal migrants. I followed up, and that number is correct.
Commenters on the sites from other European Countries said the Italians are loud, but they always exaggerate, eg. 550,000 really means 55 possibly deported.

‘What does it mean?’
It feels like it could mean a wave, to the starboard…maybe a conservative spring.
SCHLICHTER talked about it today as ‘the old order’ getting the boot.
It feels hopeful, like sanity and common sense is returning to the world, or at least parts of it.
It feels like we oughta get up off our arses and DO something to get rid of the plague of lefty-ism and the agents of globalism that are quickly destroying Canada!

Trudeau dose not approve of Bolsonaro and he hates and fears Trump. He would rather jump in bed with the likes of Macron, Merkel and the unelected despots at the EU. He needs to put out to grass. His greatest achievement, so far, in Canada is to have become more disliked than his Daddy was, what a clever little fellow he is. He is trying to create a Canada that has a murder rate in our cities higher than Londons 1.9 per day and London acid attacks running at 2.9 per day.

Note…Merkel is not going to run again in the next German election.

- I think the censorship is starting to backfire. People don’t like being manipulated. Big tech has overplayed their hand. People are sick of the globalist agenda & they’re pushing back. Not surprising that Trudeau snubbed him or that nobody noticed he snubbed him. Trudeau is a clown with no class & the world knows it.

- Time for the EU to go. What good does it do for Europeans? It seems to want to exterminate the European people. It looks like several countries are pushing back. I hope they succeed.
commented 2018-10-30 21:07:55 -0400
Let me get this straight. Merkel is dislikes in Italy and other mediterranean countries for supporting budgetary austerity there? Yet she promotes the influx of unlimited migrants there at the same time? Cognitive Dissonance Much?
If you’re going to feed, house, cloth, school and provide medical services to infinite people, then you can’t have austerity by definition. Someone has to pay for this. Why not forget about budgets altogether (just as Trudeau is convinced they balance themselves) and simply spend into bankruptcy. If all EU countries go bankrupt at the same time, then are they really bankrupt? So why would budgets matter in a Globalist view?

The reason populists are succeeding is that the citizens are taking back their lands from leftist elitists. Average folks see through the cow poop the left have been shoveling out and want no more of the “government knows best” nonsense. Let’s do what we can to keep the revolution going!

Brazil elects right-wing president. What does it mean?
Well, it means- like the Trump election or any election of anyone right of Stalin- that the world is going to end soon. The apocalypse is upon us. And we won’t even live long enough to see global warming end all life as we know it. Damn! I was looking forward to that big show.
