    I never meant to offend anyone just because I agree with what he said.
    While I might disagree with you 100%, I never felt offended and believe you are trying to state a sincerely held opinion.

    I think part of the misunderstandings that many of us are having here is that we are all discussing these matters on three different levels:
    1. We are discussing the original video from Post #1, without looking at the context of the speech outside of the words uttered here.
    2. We are discussing Jair Bolsonaro in general (which is the subject of the thread title). Some of these things should give context to what is being said in this speech.
    3. We are discussing Populism and other populist world leaders, such as Donald Trump and Rodrigo Duterte.
    Just a few comments about the last point. I think a lot of people here automatically love or loathe Bolsonaro because of how they feel about populism or because of how they feel about Trump and Duterte. Love them or hate them, I do believe that Trump and Duterte are trying to improve the lives of the vast majority of the peoples in their country. You can argue about how successful they are, but I think they are all very different animals from Bolsonaro.

    For Duterte, the enemies in the world are the terrorists (which the Phillipines has lots), drug dealers, street thugs and pedophile priests, and he doesn't always worry about their civil right to a trial. Shoot first and ask questions later. He defines himself as a socialist and wants to protect the weak and the poor. He also wants to protect his nation for foreign predatory capitalists.

    For Bolsonaro, the enemies of the world are civil rights and social justice advocates, union organizers, the indigenous peoples, feminists. He's quite willing to see these people murdered, or at least he has said he would. He is an anarcho capitalist that sees money making opportunity in crisis. He is more than willing to bring foreign influence in if there is money to be made. He interest in making guns available to those who could afford them (most Brazillians couldn't) is just his way of using violence to support his system of predatory capitalism.
    I appreciate your words, but I was discussing only and exclusively about that short video (post #1), I think a new thread about Bolsonaro's past would be more appropriate to drawn the big picture of who he really is, there is plenty of information available on him, look into 60' and you will see satan in person!

    Actually I do not feel anything for Bolsonaro, I do not hate or love him, a while ago, specially after my last trip to Brazil I start to dig something about the Brazilian Presidents and I found out that almost all of them are pretty bad, politics in Brazil is hell, sorry to say that.

    Just to make some facts straight, to have a firearm legally in Brazil will cost R$ 1.000 (gun license) + R$ 83,00 (gun registration every 3 or 5 years, i am not sure) + gun purchase (if need) - anyone can get a gun license with POLICIA FEDERAL (Federeal Police of Brazil). It is quite affordable, one of my friends in Brazil is a truck driver and he carry his gun when travelling, he said there is kidnappers in the highways and he need it for his protection, that's the only way.
    Just to say an illegal gun in Brazil can be bought for as low as R$ 250 in any favela.

    I don't care what he says about Covid-19. If these quotes are correct, and I'd trust Mashika to get her facts right (can any of our Brazilian members confirm??), then the guy deserves to be hounded out of office.

    Period.
    Native Indians are considered incapable of acts of civil life by our laws. Bolsonaro wants to give permission for native Indians to commercially explore their lands by mining or growing crops and provide for themselves like any other ordinary Brazilian.

    Bolsonaro is actively helping the deforestation of Amazon by firing those civil servants that inspect deforestation, by complaining on Television of civil servants that fine and destroy machines employed to deforest the Amazon Jungle. Our Environmental Ministry was asking Bolsonaro to pass Bills to remove burocracy and regulation to help those that have deforested parts of the jungle to legalize their agriculture business on Amazon Region.

    Now I will share some articles that are talking about the deforestation of Amazon in 2019 and 2020. Please use Google translate and set it from portuguese into english:

    Something is wrong with what you said, but i'm not going to argue about it, i will just say that the last thing he wants is something good for the natives, or as you call them "Indians"

    He dislike "Indians" as much as Hitler hated Jews, that's all very obvious from his own mouth

    I think arguing about that is pointless, he spoke about his true feelings in a way that can't be twisted at all

    And probably this thread title should be changed to "Bolsonaro's speach" or something like that instead of just his name, because it clearly leads into discussing the person and not the video. But i don't even know if that matters, it's basically this:

    "We are going to talk about how cool this person looks like on this video, where he said all the right things i wanted to hear, if you know something that takes away from this great message go somewhere else to post it and don't break the illusion"

    What for? It's fake anyways, i don't like to be fooled so if i look into the person and find out he's a serial murderer and lier, why would i believe another video of the guy just because he said the right things i wanted to hear?



    This is like when cops hit someone who's already down on the floor and they miss to hit him and hit the floor, then later on they sue the guy because the cop got bruised when hitting the floor, and they call it "aggression by the guy who got arrested". All backwards and completely without logic

    In my first post I am not judging if what Bolsonaro said about native indians is good or bad, that´s up for everybody to decide by him/herself. I am just talking about Bolsonaro´s plan for them. I am just comunicating facts without giving my opinion.

    Head up.. Some of the hospital are in construction and not fully equipped and functional for Covid.. (some money are going in someone else pocket)
    Bolsonaro is the president, He can send the Army, police or whatever he please to check out any of these place if they are really empty.
    no need to send regular people for this.
    This is all a political show down here. Brazil has the biggest corruption ever.. they all fight each other for power and money, either way you see left or right it smell bad.

    There is more fake news, Bolsonarist took this old story from 2017 and made current COVID-19 related...
    even Jim Stone (freelance journalist) fell for it......

    The real story was a police investigation in Sao Carlos SP on life insurance fraud

    Heard about some further stuff today about coffin openings discovering only weights in them instead of bodies, following up from the unconfirmed “fake news”. Looks like there’s a serious covid narrative war going on in Brazil, bolsonaro or not. I will lean on the non mainstream news side. Mainstream is 95% fake.

    Brazil is a very corrupt state, it just happens that the people controlling this hospital are leaning towards a party that doesn't like Bolsonaro, everyone else is doing the exact same thing

    How big a hospital needs to be to hold 5000 people, all with covid? and how much money was sent to them due to this "extreme situation"

    Meanwhile, while this lasted, the real brazillians were suffering badly, but if you think Bolsonaro did this out of good heart of with Brazil's interest in mind, you are terribly wrong. Because we still see the natives without food or medicine and pushed away day by day while begging for help from Bolsonaro, he seems to be deft as soon as he sees specific skin colors

    That hasn't changed at all, and there's real emergency on those lands, but i guess if people die or goes away, then you can give better use of that land than to let it be "wasted".

    Something similar has happened a bit in Russia, all farm land is being left to die, everyone moving to the cities, once the land is forgotten and loses all value, it is bought for cheap, including giant houses that would cost millions of dollars in the US, but are sold for cheap, like 20,000 dollars or so Then the land is taken away to build other stuff and people eventually comes back "home" and now they have to rent cheap houses and go work on the factories or whatever because they were not able to find any work on the cities, or were not accepted and had a terrible time

    There was a name for this cheap strategy that works very well no matter what, but i forgot about it lol

    Anyways this will happen on Brazil as well, people will leave their land in search of a better life, sell cheap then go to the city with high hopes, then get fooled, looked down upon, rejected and marginalized, then return home to rent a cheap bad apartment and work on a factory that was built on the same land they used to own, now earning barely enough money to live day by day and not able to look into a good future anymore, or leave anything but debt and sadness to their kids. It's the usual thing. But someone will get rich for sure!

    Congrats!

    Whoopsies spoke too soon - it's still GAME ON for Brazil by Geightz and co. They've started releasing a FAKE version of hydroxychloroquine. Imagine that - who would release something fake for a cheap drug? there's no money to be made!

    Here is Unimed's official website in Belem-Para > https://www.unimedbelem.com.br/

    Here is their hotsite for the corona virus > https://unimedcontraocoronavirus.com.br/unimeds and all units in Brazil that is taking part of this project, but it does not say anything about Cloroquina 450mg or any other medication given to the public, also Unimed in Brazil is a private hospital, it is not for the general public. For the average public is the government hospital they call SUS.

For the average public is the government hospital they call SUS.
    It would be interesting to know whether they're giving, say, sugar pills in place of Plaquenil (which would indicate to me a rather nefarious purpose) or whether some company has decided to replicate the Plaquenil packaging and charge the high prices associated with the brand Plaquenil vs the generic hydroxychloroquine (which would indicate more generic greed than anything more nefarious).

    In the flyer it says, it started distributing medicines for Covid-19 on 11 MAY. Location: CAN (Complexo Arquitetonico de Nazare - Avenue Gentil Bittencourt (between Street Generalissimo Deodoro and 14 de Marco)) - The content of this flyer is inconsistent, it clearly says free of charge but in the bottom it says that people need to have Unimed ID in order to be able to get the medicines. My portuguese sucks sometimes.

    Pharmaceuticals in Brazil is mafia, I would not trust a single word coming out of these crooks. I remember an old case of Generic medicines in Brazil, it was wheat flour (not sugar), many brands were tested in the occasion. (sorry I couldn't find any link for reference). The same case was happening in The Philipines years ago. Unfortunately people are hypochondriac and now with Covid-19 the beast is profiting super high.

    Default Re: Brazil's President Bolsonaro's legacy and values

    This is pretty major: Bolsonaro has Covid-19. One of many articles:
    Brazil’s Bolsonaro has COVID-19 – and so do thousands of Indigenous people who live days from the nearest hospital

    Satere-mawe Indigenous men in face masks paddle the Ariau River, in hard-hit Manaus state, during the coronavirus pandemic, May 5, 2020.

    Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who has denied the severity of the coronavirus pandemic and ridiculed social distancing, tested positive for the novel coronavirus on July 7 after showing mild symptoms.

    Bolsonaro is one of 1.9 million confirmed COVID-19 victims in coronavirus-wracked Brazil. But as a white, wealthy and powerful man, he is not a member of the most hard-hit group. Data shows that Black Brazilians and Indigenous people are getting sick and dying at much higher rates.

    Indigenous communities face particularly daunting odds to survival during the pandemic. Most of Brazil’s roughly 896,000 Indigenous people live in the Amazon region, where the nearest hospital may be days away by boat and offer limited care. Indigenous Brazilians also have higher rates of malnutrition, anemia and obesity than the general population – risk factors for severe COVID-19.

    As of July 6, Brazil’s Health Ministry reported 7,958 COVID-19 infections among Indigenous people and 171 deaths. The National Committee for Indigenous Life and Memory, an advocacy group for Indigenous people during the pandemic, estimates 12,000 infections and 400 deaths.

    The situation is dire for the Amazonian Yanomami people. If current trends continue, 5,600 Yanomami – or 40% of their entire population – could become infected with COVID-19, according to a report from Brazil’s Indigenous Environmental Institute.

    COVID-19 is just the latest deadly threat to Indigenous people under Bolsonaro, whose policies and rhetoric are so openly hostile that they essentially amount to a campaign of genocide, our research finds.

    A 92-year-old Baniwa Indigenous patient who recovered from COVID-19 leaves the hospital in the Amazonian city of Manaus in May 2020, holding a sign reading ‘Another Recovered Warrior.’

    What is genocide


    Under Bolsonaro, who took office in January 2018, Brazil has dismantled environmental protections of the Amazon, allowing deforestation to spike. He has also curtailed the land rights of Indigenous people and turned a blind eye to illegal mining, logging and farming operations on their territory.

    In late 2019, those policies led two leading Brazilian human rights organizations to report Bolsonaro to the International Criminal Court, alleging that the right-wing leader was “inciting genocide” against Indigenous people. This case is still pending.

    Under international law, the crime of genocide requires “intent to destroy, in whole or in part,” a group based on their nationality, ethnicity, race or religion. While genocide often involves explicit killing, it can also include causing serious harm to a population and destroying their way of life.

    As scholars of mass atrocity prevention and Indigenous rights, we have watched with alarm as Brazil showed warning signs that this latter, slower type of genocide was underway. Now COVID-19, which is actually killing Indigenous people by the hundreds, could be the final straw.

    A protest demonstration honoring Brazilian COVID-19 victims in the capital of Brasilia, June 28, 2020. At the time, Brazil had 57,070 coronavirus deaths.

    Warning signs

    In theory, many Brazilian Indigenous people should be well situated to escape COVID-19 exposure. An estimated 10,000 live in voluntary isolation across the Amazon, separated from broader Brazilian society. Many others have only limited contact with the outside world.

    Their rights to self-determination and isolation are confirmed by two international agreements on indigenous rights, both of which Brazil signed. In recent years, however, loggers, miners and farmers have aggressively violated these land rights and set up shop in the Amazon, sometimes with the Bolsonaro government’s explicit endorsement.

    The illegal land grabs have worsened during the pandemic, as the world’s attention turned away from the Amazon. The number of non-Indigenous gold miners working on Indigenous lands in Brazil increased from 4,000 in 2018 to over 20,000 so far in 2020. Such incursions risk bringing the coronavirus into Indigenous communities.

    The systematic violation of Indigenous land rights also endanger their very survival.

    Indigenous people have lived in the Amazon for centuries, protecting the rainforest in a manner that not only supported their traditional way of life but also protected this global natural resource. Historically, they could count on at least minimal government regulations intended to defend the Amazon rainforest, though deforestation has long been a challenge.

    But Bolsonaro does not believe in defending the Amazon or its inhabitants. One of his first acts in office was to roll back environmental protections. Deforestation of the Amazon has increased 34% since 2018, according to the Brazilian Amazon monitoring program. Deforestation of Indigenous lands is up almost 80%.

    Illegal property seizure and rights violations like those experienced by Indigenous Brazilians under Bolsonaro are known warning signs of genocide. So is the physical destruction of a persecuted group’s homeland. According to the UN, “deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part” constitutes genocide.

    Yanomami Indigenous Brazilians wait to receive health care from missionaries in Roraima state, July 1, 2020.

    Denying the humanity of a group is another frequent precursor to genocide, history shows. Before the Holocaust, for example, Nazis referred to Jews as rats.

    Bolsonaro has not gone so far as to characterize Indigenous Brazilians as vermin. But he refers to them using derogatory language.

    “The Indians do not speak our language, they do not have money, they do not have culture,” he told Campo Grande newspaper in 2015, when he was still a congressman. Earlier this year, Bolsonaro said Indigenous people exposed to the outside world are “increasingly becoming human beings, like us.”

    Time for intervention

    Land grabs, insufficient health care, deforestation and stigmatization all threatened Indigenous Brazilians before the pandemic. Genocides can be that way. They are a process, not sudden, isolated events.

    Risk factors and warning signs can smolder for years in a country. Then a “trigger” like COVID-19 ignites them, resulting in mass death.

    We’re not alone in making this dire forecast. On June 29, a Brazilian indigenous rights organization and six political parties jointly requested an order of protection for Indigenous people during the coronavirus pandemic to prevent genocide from occurring.

    The plaintiffs insist that the government must provide adequate health care to all Indigenous Brazilians; physically secure Indigenous land to prevent illegal miners, loggers and others from entering; and expel those who do trespass. Failing these emergency measures, they assert, Brazil’s Indigenous peoples face extinction.

    If the court grants their request, there’s no guarantee the government will comply. But it could saves lives. For indigenous communities with just a few hundred members, that may make all the difference.
