Just wondering why so-called opposition in Trumpistan are filling social media with his talking points right before their election when they could be talking about the horrific rise of global fascism and hurtling towards global destruction.

Oh right, USian solipsism. #BlueWave
Another day, another Trump scent the so-called #BlueWave are all baying after. It's not like there is anything more urgent to talk about. theguardian.com/environment/20… #Midterms2018

He's promised to murder indigenous people, strip them of their land rights and destroy the Amazon, so Canada is pretty happy. @CBCAlerts #JairBolsonaro #brazilelection #cdnpoli
The true Canada: #OpCanary. Environment caregivers had better show solidarity with Brazil's indigenous like never before.

Nazi cheerleaders everywhere. BBC calls torture and indigenous genocide refreshing. CBC gushes over fresh opportunities for planetary destruction.. Buzzfeed says the pig Bolsonaro is 'borderline' fascist, like he hasn't quite hit their bar.

Nordeste is trending as sane people in Brazil hope the northeast will save them from the fascists in the rest of the country. Bolsonaro looks set to win.

“It’s as if the gates of hell have been opened.”
“The extreme right has conquered Brazil.” theguardian.com/world/live/201…
The pig Bolsonaro has won. 56% of Brazilians voted for him, 44% for Haddad.

No one can say Brazilians are ignorant of the consequences of this vote. Their last dictatorship ended in 1985 and there was a National Truth Commission. Sadly, too many of those guilty retained power.
From Brazil's National Truth Commission, released in 2014. Brazil has refused to prosecute those responsible. South American dictatorships are never eradicated, they all lay dormant, waiting, like the first nazis who hid in Argentina and Brazil. hrw.org/news/2014/12/1…

Bolsonaro would abolish Brazil’s environment ministry, exposing world’s largest rainforest and its indigenous owners to criminal gangs of loggers and miners. climatechangenews.com/2018/10/08/bol…

1) Brazil is on the verge of electing far-right populist Jair Bolsonaroan an extremist “barbarian” who represents “the dross of the dictatorship”.

He will be opposed by the left wing candidate @Haddad_Fernando , member of the PT - our sister party in Brazil.
2) Who is Bolsonaroan?

He has a torturer as his idol Carlos Alberto Brilhante Ustra who was one of the most sadistic torturer & murderer in the military dictatorship that choked Brazil between 1964 & 1985.

He has also voiced admiration for Chile's dictator Augusto Pinochet.
3) He believes that women are not important and didn't hesitate to claim that “if he had four sons, he then had a moment of weakness, and the fifth was a girl.”

He hates gays claiming that he'd rather have his son die in a car accident than have him show up dating some guy.
