Brazil Gets It Right

Since this pandemic became a world problem there has been one voice that has become the voice and the poster child of the anti-pandemic lunacy…..Brazil’s Bolsonaro.

Bolsonaro sparked fury on Tuesday with an extraordinary address to the nation in which he rubbished the quarantine measures and travel restrictions being implemented by many state governors and urged Brazilians to return to work and schools – in contradiction of his own health ministry’s counsel.

The comments stunned state governors – many of whom are now in open revolt against the president.

The Brazilian people have started protesting in favor of throwing this guy from office……

Brazil erupted to the sound of banging pots and pans and shouts of “Bolsonaro out!” with housebound protesters expressing their anger toward the president. The protests took place in major Brazilian cities and even included projections of “Bolsonaro out!” onto the sides of buildings, according to social media videos.

Finally someone has stepped up to knock these naysayers down….naysayers like this tool Bolsonaro…..in Brazil it appears to be the military…

On April 4 there were reports that General Walter Braga Netto was now the “operational president” of Brazil, with President Jair Bolsonaro effectively stripped of his decision-making powers. Netto, an Army General, had been the chief of staff for Bolsonaro. He was put in power by the Armed Forces’ high command after Bolsonaro was isolated by his cabinet, governors and other political leaders over his response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Initial reports came from Argentine investigative journalist Horacio Verbitsky. A high-ranking official of the Brazilian Army told his Argentine counterpart that Bolsonaro is no longer involved in decision making. Verbitsky said, “There was a telephone communication from a high ranking Brazilian army official with one from Argentina, in which the Brazilian informed them that they had taken the decision to circumvent President Bolsonaro in all important decisions.” Bolsonaro is described as a “monarch without effective power.”

Brazilian Military Curtails President Bolsonaro’s Power Over COVID19 Dispute

That is one way to rid the country of a health threat…..

But I have to ask….was this action to protect the people or was it just the military wanted power?

  1. I saw a BBC report about that guy. His messages and public appearances were totally irresponsible. He even told people to ‘Die like men’ during a walkabout. He deserves to be forcibly removed, then thrown in jail.
    Best wishes, Pete.
