This gets funnier every time it happens.
An aide to Brazil’s far-right leader Jair Bolsonaro has been accused of flashing a white supremacist hand symbol during a legislative hearing—and could face an investigation.
Filipe Martins, President Bolsonaro’s special adviser for international affairs, is accused of making the “OK” hand symbol—which has become associated with far-right and white supremacist groups—during a Senate session on the country’s COVID-19 vaccine purchasing program.
Images and video of Martins making the gesture quickly spread on Brazilian social media. Martins can be seen making the sign and moving his hand up and down his suit lapel for around three seconds.
Senate President Rodrigo Pacheco said he would consider whether to pass the matter to Brazil’s legislative police for an investigation, CNN Brasil reported.
Martins dismissed the concerns on Twitter, describing those who had complained as “clowns” and threatening consequences for anyone accusing him of racism.
“A warning to clowns who wish to support the thesis that I, a Jew, am sympathetic to ‘white supremacism’,” he wrote.
“In their sick minds they saw an authoritarian gesture in an image that shows me adjusting the lapel of my suit: they will be prosecuted and held responsible; one by one.”
But if he’s not a white supremacy Jew, then why did he take a selfie with white supremacy leader and drunken Irish slob Steve Bannon?
Martins also retweeted a post from politician Alexandre Aleluia, who said the reports were evidence of “the moral degradation of our press.” Bolsonaro, his allies and supporters regularly attack journalists and the free press in Brazil, accusing them of spreading “fake news” and leading unfair criticism of Bolsonaro’s populist administration.
Among those concerned by Martins’ gesture was the Holocaust Museum in the Brazilian city of Curitiba. The museum said it was “astonished” by the video and warned that the use of the hand symbol was “very serious.” The museum added that neo-Nazi sentiment and activity was increasing in Brazil.
Why is there a “Holocaust” museum in Brazil?
We don’t live in a society, we live in a Jewish psychosis.
