Poor Loserism is a global threat to democracy.

"Hundreds of hardware supporters of Brazil's former president, Jair Bolsonaro, have stormed the country’s congress, presidential palace and supreme court in a stunning security breach that was immediately compared to the 6 January invasion of the US Capitol by followers of Donald Trump in 2021.

“What we are witnessing is a terrorist attack,” the news anchor Erick Bang announced on the GloboNews television network as word of the upheaval spread. “The three buildings have been invaded by coup-mongering terrorists.”

Shocking video footage showed the pro-Bolsonaro militants sprinting up the ramp into the Palácio do Planalto, the presidential offices, roaming the building’s corridors and vandalising the nearby supreme court, whose windows had been smashed.

The veteran leftist Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, known as Lula, was sworn in as Brazil’s new president last Sunday in celebrations attended by hundreds of thousands of Brazilians.

But thousands of pro-Bolsonaro extremists have refused to accept Lula’s narrow victory in October’s election, spending recent weeks camping outside army bases across the country and calling for a military coup."

    First off, this is yet another example of why the January 6th Insurrection was a worse crime than any example of a George Floyd related protest that may have devolved into vandalism and/or violence. Most riots are property crimes. January was a violent assault on democracy, and it's apparently contagious.

    Second, America should newly-elected Rep. George Santos, who speaks Portuguese, to Brazil to investigate what's happening there.

    By the way...
    Prosecutors in Brazil reopening criminal fraud case against George Santos
    A spokesperson for Rio de Janeiro’s prosecutor’s office told The New York Times that police had been unable to locate Santos, but with his location known, the office will request the Justice Department formally notify him of the charges.

    It's just another day in Latin America. This time, it happens to be Brazil. They just had a riot in Mexico a couple of weeks ago.

    "400 murders a day: 10 reasons why Latin America is the world's most violent place

    Latin America is home to about 8% of the world's population but has about one-third of its homicides — in 2016, that meant some 400 homicides a day, or roughly 146,000 a year. But the bloodshed is not evenly distributed.

    In Mexico, the region's second most populous country, 33,753 homicide victims in 2018 set a record for the second year in a row; 17,142 victims in the first half of this year likely means 2019 will set a new mark.

    In Brazil, the most populated country in the region, homicides fell 13% between 2017 and 2018, but that still means 51,589 people were killed. Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, regarded as some of the world's most violent countries, have also seen declines, as has Colombia, long riven by political and drug-related violence.

    The regional homicide rate has increased 3.7% annually over the past decade — three times the population growth rate of 1.1%."

    If it was just a riot, it wouldn't have been big news. Riots although destructive and often deadly are hardly uncommon.

    I condemn the riot. I agree with OD. There's important context to be considered.

    First, to report violent political unrest in South America is not to break new ground. It's even more likely that there were shenanigans in a S America election than than that our party that ran Tammany Hall, Jim Crow and "vote early, vote often" committed substantial vote fraud in 020.

    Second, rsn.org is a progressive propaganda site, not a source of objective journalism. pb's been burned by that site every time he's trusted it. Were quotes from the WSJ, pb'd pay attention.

    Donna, Curt,

    Here's real honest journalism from a beloved lib SwampMedia source:

    "BRASÍLIA — Thousands of radical backers of far-right ex-president Jair Bolsonaro breached and vandalized Brazil’s presidential office building, Congress and Supreme Court on Sunday in scenes that hauntingly evoked the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump."

    #Notfallingforit bahahahahahahahahahaha!

    Being Latin America, I have little doubt the election was not ethical. It's commonplace. This is the land of armed military checking votes to ensure you "voted" for the right candidate (akin to our New Black Panthers ploy during the obomber election). If you vote for the wrong one, they take your name and are considered a subversive. This gives the government full rights to enter your house at any time, toss it and arrest anyone they want "for questioning." Some people disappear for years or forever. And the "government" has no "record" you were ever arrested.

    I find it interesting that curt, especially would take the government's view of this. He yammers on about these people need to escape the political and social wrongdoings in their country and should be taken in automatically. The scene is flipped and in a country that was on the brink of civil war, known for the abuses he yammers about. And he supports the exact thing he "claims" is evil. I don't get it.

    On the other hand, it is a South American "Leftist" (Read Che Marxist), so I guess any move against them to destroy the government is a good thing. Just like the left wants to do here.
