jazz why don't you just post what you think with a link instead of giant wall of text copy paste posts.
Bolsonaro has seized on widespread discontent and fatigue with an incapable and corrupt political establishment, on fervid opposition to a leftist party that had spent more than a decade in power, on an economic collapse that Brazil has only slowly begun to escape, and on rising levels of violent crime.
the counter-revolution in Brazil could now count on winning at least some support from the PT’s natural constituency. Bolsonaro drew support from across the political and social spectrum, even from poor and black voters whom some of his most repressive policy goals will surely target. Polls ahead of the election showed that Bolsonaro led Haddad among black and mixed-race voters and women ― and that he also earned a surprisingly large share of the vote from LGBTQ Brazilians ― despite his racism, sexism and homophobia.
In the U.S., Trump’s continued attacks have had negative effects on how Americans view their elections, the press and other democratic institutions, and his rhetoric has emboldened racists and white nationalists and potentially contributed to rises in violent crime against racial, ethnic and religious minorities.

US is in danger of left wing dictatorship
RC2006 sayswhy don't you just post what you think with a link instead of giant wall of text copy paste posts.Yeah, well maybe our democracy is really an oligarchy and has fallen to the might of unlimited monetary corruption to influence every outcome in favor of monied interests.
The article presents a poignant story too.
Honestly I still haven't read the whole thing.
especially when emotional manipulation is not the desired result.
Come to peace with your world.Now go.
Why do so many people prattle on about "our democracy"?
Our democracy? You do know we are living in a Republic, don't you?
generic PC journalistic crap
And another fuckin' magic prick has reappeared even after years of my putting him on ignore.Does the ignore button work at all?
generic PC journalistic crapThat is the site that gave Trump credit for pulling us out of Syria.Silly, I see that now.
Brazil Is About To Show The World How A Modern Democracy Collapses
RC2006 saysjazz why don't you just post what you think with a link instead of giant wall of text copy paste posts.But that would require him to think, and not just be a kool-aid drinking puppet.
...."This article was originally published by "Huffington Post" - I wonder why Jazz didn't include that part in the copy/paste?
You think Brazil's democracy isn't collapsing?
The article implies that our democracy could be going away the same
Bolsonaro, whose presidency will begin with a New Year’s Day inaugural ceremony in Brasília, has routinely praised Brazil’s military dictatorship, which gave way to the return of democratic governance in 1985. And his rise to power shares many similarities with the military regime’s: Bolsonaro has seized on widespread discontent
jazz_music saysYou think Brazil's democracy isn't collapsing?It's not. Neither is ours. Calm down, Chicken Little, the sky is not falling.
Edit: and I am nearly 100% sure that Bolsonaro will be just as corrupt as his left-wing predecessors...so his right-wing populist majesty will be voted out and replaced with another corrupt left winger.
