THE narrative is in … again. “Fascists”, as the US channel MSNBC calls them, have “attacked democracy” in Brazil in an apparent copy-cat of the January 6, 2021, “insurrection” at the US Capitol.
But the so-called fascists are in fact a broad cross-section and likely majority of the Brazilian people, who, like the January 6th, 2001 US protesters, believe they have been ripped off by a global electronic election rigging operation. US writer Matthew Tyrmand describes Brazil as “the most important electoral battleground in 2022 against global communism because at many levels it’s a proxy for China…”.
What big media also didn’t tell you was that Brazil’s new president Lula da Silva, in 1990 worked with his Soviet-aligned communist comrade Fidel Castro to set up the Sao Paulo Forum in Brazil through which, in Tyrmand’s words, they would “incubate every Marxist leader in Latin America”. Communists are long-term strategists and Lula, once again, has his chance to funnel South America into the global “communist” model as laid down by Chairman Xi Jinping and the UN/G20/WEF/WHO globalist cabal.
And what better way to demonize another populist, anti-globalist movement than to employ agent provocateurs to hijack one of the big rallies they are prone to organising. The violence makes global media headlines and evening news, and hey bingo, millions of disenfranchised voters suddenly become “violent fascists”.
But the Brazilian supporters of former president Jair Bolsanaro have been out on the streets in their millions since the calling of the October 2022 election last October that was supposedly “narrowly won” by Lula – who, incidentally, was convicted and jailed for corruption charges in 2017 but then released by one of his friends in the judiciary. But that didn’t stop Joe Biden and the “international community” coming out in support of Lula the leftie.
Tucker Carlson put it very bluntly in a recent report: “Thanks to what was very clearly a rigged election, a convicted criminal called Lula da Silva is now president of the most important country in South America. Millions of people in Brazil know that their democracy has been hijacked, possibly forever.”
Given the millions of Brazilians who have been out on the streets to protest against the election result, the rigging of the election certainly is possible, according to official military investigations. The “razor-thin” result was based upon the unprecedented use of digital election machinery, which is said to be contrary to the country’s Constitution.
According to an ABC report, “risks” were found with the election system. Defence Minister Paulo Nogueira, in a letter to Brazil’s top electoral authority (TSE), wrote that voting machines’ “connection to the internet, during the compilation of the source code and consequent generation of programs, may configure a relevant risk to the security of the process.”
He added “from the functionality tests … it is not possible to say that the electronic voting system is free from the influence of any malicious code that could alter its functioning.” He suggested the TSE consider setting up a commission to comb through the election results for any sign of issues flagged in the military report.
But the global media repeatedly calls claims of election fraud “unproven” or “baseless”, despite the Brazilian military finding clear vulnerabilities in a digital election system being used for the first time. This is the same electronic voting system increasingly used worldwide, including in Australia.
Steve Bannon, a key supporter of global populist movements and former Trump adviser, noted that Chinese president Xi’s “hammer man”, that is his special representative and vice president Wang Qishan, attended Lula’s inauguration ceremony and a series of meetings.
Lula is basically in the CCP’s pocket with all sorts of bilateral deals planned. Morning Joe and his team of idiots at MSNBC say there’s “no evidence” for Brazilians to accuse Lula of trying to set up a communist state, just like there’s “no evidence” of election fraud. They suggest elections everywhere – except in a few dodgy third world dictatorships – are run smoothly, accurately and without a hint of fraud.
Lula governed Brazil from 2003 to 2011 for the , was said to be very popular, but was convicted in a corruption scandal involving millions of dollars in kickbacks to more than 80 politicians and members of the business elite. Lula was sentenced to 12 years in prison, but managed to get the conviction annulled, not because he could prove he was innocent, but because a pro-Lula judge found the court ruling was not made in the correct jurisdiction – a technicality.
The court ruling allowed Lula to run again for president against the Trump-style populist and former military captain Bolsonaro, who came to power in 2019 after a landslide win in the 2018 election to become 38th president of Brazil.
Bolsonaro, like Trump, went for the socially conservative, working class and religious vote – those large numbers of people who have had more than enough of woke politics and being brow beaten daily by media about how they are all causing a climate crisis, must stop using “dirty oil” and become fully vaxed, masked, genderless, anti-racist, environmentally aware citizens of the 2030 new global order.
On January 5th, a convoy of 100 buses and other vehicles transporting tens of thousands of yellow-clad Bolsanaro supporters converged on the modernistic Brazilian capital Brasilia in yet another show of mass opposition against Lula and his rigged election. Extended video shows clashes between the protesters and provocateurs, who in a copy-cat of the January 6 riot, invaded government and court chambers, wrecking fittings and sitting defiantly in the seats of authority.
Media immediately seized upon the worst of the footage showing steel fences being used as battering rams against windows. The Brazilian publication Publica immediately laid the blame at the feet of a group of evangelical pastors. “The tour was organized by Pastor Elias de Souza, known as Elias Gaúcho. Like him, other religious leaders, some of them politicians with mandates, participated, helped organize and call for attacks on the Three Powers (Senate, House and Supreme Court).” The heading read “Evangelical leaders summon extremists for violent acts”.
Reuters, meanwhile, reported that further protests were planned by the supporters of the “far right” former president Bolsanaro “whose Sunday rampage through public buildings marked the worst attack on the country’s institutions in decades.”
Lula has already blamed police and military sympathetic to Bolsanaro as allowing the protesters access to the presidential palace and other government buildings. This of course will give the communist leader an excuse to purge police and military and place his own loyalists in there.
Like Biden’s politically-infiltrated FBI, Lula’s henchmen are now going after organisers and businesses that helped fund what France 24 called “the uprising”. In fact it was just another of a series of massive demonstrations over the past three months, largely ignored by international media. But this time another protest rally was infiltrated, violence fomented and used to demonize the populist movement.
The Reuters report itself demonstrates the cross section of protesters involved by detailing those among the 2000 arrested protesters who were released. “So far, 727 of the over 1,500 involved in Sunday’s riots have been imprisoned. Nearly 600 have been released for “humanitarian reasons” – mainly the elderly, people with health issues and parents of young children, according to a federal police statement.”
But Lula’s cronies in the justice system, just like Biden’s Department of Justice cronies, have already started a communist-style purge of government officials accused of allowing the attack on the Congress, Supreme Court and presidential buildings.
The Supreme Court upheld an arrest warrant for Anderson Torres, Bolsonaro’s former justice minister who oversaw public security in Brasilia during Sunday’s riots. Supreme Court Justice Moraes accused Torres of “negligence and connivance”.
Reuters dutifully reported, without a hint of negativity towards Lula’s big crackdown, that Torres was “fired for his failure to stop Sunday’s chaos and his arrest warrant alleged complicity with the demonstrators, who marched to the center of the capital under police escort. The court also upheld the 90-day removal from office of former Brasilia Governor Ibaneis Rocha, Torres’s former boss. Public prosecutors have also sought to freeze Bolsonaro’s assets.”
Bolsanaro and Torres had both flown to Florida before the riot at the capital. Reuters and company are now using the term “assault on institutions” and “anti-government protests” to describe the actions of the massive anti-election rigging protest.
