Stockpiling weapons is always a good idea, regardless of specific circumstances.
Armed people will never be enslaved, Brazil’s president, Jair Bolsonaro, who is trailing in polls for the 2022 election, told a crowd of his supporters in the capital Brasilia, urging everyone to get a rifle as soon as possible.
Bolsonaro’s ratings have crumbled amid the Covid-19 pandemic, which has seen Brazil become one of the world’s worst-affected countries with almost 21 million infections and more than 578,000 deaths. A recent poll by XP/Ipespe revealed that only 24% of those surveyed plan to vote for the 66-year-old when he runs for reelection next year, while his leftist opponent, former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, received the support of some 40%.
The rightist president has already threatened to not accept the outcome of the 2022 election, claiming it could be rigged against him due to the alleged vulnerabilities of the country’s purely electronic voting system. He’s now facing an investigation over those statements, which were never backed by any convincing proof.
One group of Brazilians who have been increasingly happy with Bolsonaro since he took office in 2019 are gun enthusiasts, whom he once again addressed on Friday.
“Everybody has to buy a rifle, damn it! Armed people will never be enslaved,” the head of state told a crowd of supporters outside his official residence, the Alvorada Palace.
He acknowledged that weapons “cost a lot,” but insisted that those who oppose guns should stop nagging people who want and can afford to buy them.
During his campaign for office, Bolsonaro vowed to relax Brazil’s gun laws so that citizens could protect themselves from the country’s rampant crime and violence.
And he kept that promise, issuing almost a dozen decrees that made firearms, including semi-automatic assault rifles, more easily available to the public.
There’s a zero percent chance that Bolsonaro is going to survive the 2022 election. It’s just not possible that the globalists will let him win, and he’s thus far totally failed to establish some kind of dictatorship or whatever. He couldn’t even manage to shut down the coronavirus hoax.
His whole situation has been basically exactly like that of Donald Trump.
But, hey – if he’s telling people to stockpile weapons, maybe he’s planning on telling his supporters to rise up in the event that the election is stolen from him.
That would at least be funny.
Certainly, it would be much funnier than what Donald Trump did – condemn his own supporters as terrorists and then tell everyone to take a deadly vaccine. That was not funny at all.
Bolsonaro is the last legit masculine, Christian figure in the West.
