Brazil's Bolsonaro takes office and pushes crony capitalism; targets LGBT and the indigenous while purging government contractors of dissenters

Trump is constantly shat on, but ever since he took office, I haven't seen him actually push any policies that are meant to endanger LGBT. But he's still seen as a far-right Nazi/Hitler incarnate.

So like everything you hear in the media, take a "wait and see" approach before prophesying doom.
Does everything have to be about Trump?

I live in Brazil, while i didn't vote for him(nor for his opponent), mass media is very biased in some aspects.

I believe that one can only pass proper jugdgement of a State leader if he/she is living in under that ruler. Time will tell how things will go with him in charge, but, there is a lot of hypocrisy and bias when it comes to some "news". Just came here to point that out because, it's getting ridiculous, specially when you truly get to know who were the people that were ruling Brazil in the past decade and a half, before Bolsonaro.

Well that's a loaded question that seems to want to shape or control a narrative.

Why would you ever go to that thought process in the first place?
Asking for clarification is not a loaded question especially since the poster went into attack mode because he got called out . Saying you want to get rid of someone can very well mean you want to kill them. So I don't see why you decide to white knight for comments like that when you very well know it can be ambiguous

Ok bruh, lol.

I'm pretty sure it's talking about politics in here, so when you say get rid of a certain political party in office, it usually means getting them out of the positions they hold.

But do you playa, white knighting and all that jazz.

That's not what he said .. let me quote what he called them. "socialists and parasites" he never mentioned a political party. And again there is nothing wrong with asking for clarification. If that's what he meant the conversation would have been done on 1 reply but you know when you don't want to admit it then defensive behavior starts to come out .

Ok sure, lol. Nobody owes anyone an explanation to the farthest of asinine questions you can ask.

I question the mentality of those who jump go that conclusion more so than the response given. Takes a lot of mental gymnastics and leap in logic to ask that question, or was it projection? ;)

Bolsonaro is just one of many last gasps taken by a group that hasn't much time left. His presidency will hurt good people in the short term, but he and his supporters are trying to avoid a reckoning that is unavoidable. Same shit is occurring in America with Trump and the awful wastes of oxygen who support him.

Last gasps? No. History shows that everything repeats. It is probably a timeframe that a lot of people cannot fathom but looking back - aside technological advances of course - in general social dynamics go in circles. lol

Out of curiosity, are LGBTQ people affected more by the murder rate or the anti-LGBTQ policies of the Brazilian president?
There are no anti-LGBT policies as of now. Even if he attempted doing such things, it would be quickly blocked by the Supreme Court and there would be a massive backfire.

In 2017, there were 447 LGBT people killed in the whole country. However, we also have between 60k and 70k deaths in a year

Everyone is affected anyway

EDIT: 445* LGBT people were killed because of homophobic reasons.

I mean, he’s called a fascist/Nazi, yet he is best pals with the Prime Minister of Israel, the Israel PM even flew all the way to Brazil to attend his inauguration.

He’s a fascist but he wants to give every Brazilian a gun. Yeah, this totally seems like something Hitler would do.

Mainstream media is garbage. I just can’t take them seriously.
Yep, journalism is dead here. They can't hide their agenda.

Was the LGBT murder rate higher than the general murder rate?

Finally something good from him. He abolished the financial "help" for TV Broadcasters yesterday. Not sure when it started, but has always been an abomination to a Federal government help News Agencies and Broadcasting companies rich as fuck as "Globo", which IS the 2nd richest company of the kind in the world - Yes, bigger than a fucking load of great international names - which also has the most expensive Advertisement time of Brazil and holds with exclusivity licenses for the biggest events and concerts in the world. Also, they record and produce their soap operas with bigger budgets and equipment then half the US series, using cameras only used in Hollywood top notch movies. Also, they export these soap operas to half the whole planet. India loves the shit they produce. Africa and some Asian Countries too.






Not sure why they needed so much from Brazil's Federal Government, but now it is gone for good

Context: here in Brazil, Open Broadcasting Companies need to win a public bidding, that was (and I think still is just a few slots), and these "winners", since our dictatorship era have always enjoyed the lack of free market (even for radio broadcasting the market is restrict as fuck). For some reason, these same companies used to receive loads of money from the government as cost help. Not anymore

Best presidente of Brazil in YEARS!
Hahaha. No.

His new mandate started somewhat clumsy with some poor decisions here and there. We still have the election of the leader of the House of Representatives and Senate which could make or break his government.

Also, he's pretty corporativist, with the recent example being regarding the military being or not in the pension reform.

The more he follows Guedes ideas and measures, the better.
