Like Donald Trump, Jair Bolsonaro has been dazzled and confounded by the people who run the actual government.
But he’s a right wing guy, and these are the days of transformation – so it’s time for a spontaneous mob, that is in no way connected to the other spontaneousness and excitement about the great reset.
We’ve gotta put in the work.
Thousands of Brazilians took the streets for a second day Sunday to call for the impeachment of President Jair Bolsonaro, who is under fire for his government’s handling of COVID-19, which has raged through the country and claimed more than 216,000 lives.
Horn-honking cars paraded through the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and a dozen or more other cities as other protesters marched on foot, some calling, “Get out Bolsonaro!”
Sunday’s protests were called by conservative groups that had once backed the president, while those on Saturday had come from the left.
“When Bolsonaro arrived, we voted for him for his proposals that we found interesting, but the situation now with the pandemic is terrible”, said Meg Fernandes, a 66-year-old engineer who joined a protest in Rio on Sunday.
She said she was especially alarmed by the situation in the northern city of Manaus, where there’s a waiting list for hospital intensive-care beds and a shortage of medical oxygen.
“I had already been disappointed last year, but now with the situation in Manaus, I think (this government ) has to stop,” she said. “Bye, Bolsonaro.”
Thomaz Favaro, a political analyst at consultancy Control Risks, said Bolsonaro faces little risk of impeachment, though that could change if his allies lose a Feb. 2 vote for leadership of the lower house.
“Bolsonaro’s base in congress is unstable, but it is robust,” he said, though it could be dented by the president’s flagging popularity.
But he said impeachment would be “a nuclear option that changes the country’s political trajectory.”
Bolsonaro — who is midway through his four-year term — has faced renewed criticism in recent weeks for both the crisis in Manaus and for delays in launching Brazil’s immunization campaign against COVID-19. The president has long resisted lockdown measures against the new coronavirus, arguing economic damage would be worse than the disease.
Just for the record, as far as I know I’m the only person on the internet connecting these mobs together as part of a single push towards cultural transformation in the third world.
Which is a pretty incredible thing, when you think about it.
Why is no one else talking about it, given that it is so obvious?
You’ve never in history had this many revolutions going on, let alone all having the same goals (which primarily revolve around female empowerment and homosexuality), without being united around any sort of unifying ideology (like communism).
This is because it’s made to look random and inevitable.
