Jair Bolsonaro Targets Minorities With Executive Orders

President Jair Bolsonaro appears to be off to a strong start in Brazil.

Undermining the rights of indigenous communities:

“RIO DE JANEIRO — President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil, who has compared indigenous communities living in protected lands to animals in zoos, took a major step toward undermining the rights of indigenous people just hours after taking office on Tuesday.

In one of a handful of measures that stand to hurt historically marginalized communities, the incoming government on Tuesday transferred responsibility for certifying indigenous territories as protected lands to the ministry of agriculture. The ministry has traditionally championed the interests of industries that want greater access to protected lands.

The certification was previously overseen by the National Indian Foundation, a government agency tasked with safeguarding the rights and welfare of indigenous communities. …”

Cleaning out the Deep State of communist subversives:

“Brazil’s new president has authorised the dismissal of civil servants who do not share his far-right ideology, it has been reported.

Having taken office this week, Jair Bolsonaro has launched a purge of left-wing government officials with approximately 300 people expected to be dismissed.

Officials who are seen as being supportive of the previous left-wing and centrist governments will be removed to “clean the house”, Mr Bolsonaro’s chief of staff Onyx Lorenzoni said.

“It’s the only way to govern with our ideas, our concepts and to carry out what Brazil’s society decided in its majority,” Mr Lorenzoni said, according to Die Welt.

He added that the vast proportion of those dismissed are on temporary contracts and their removal is necessary to “do away with the Socialist and Communist ideas that during 30 years have led us to the chaos in which we live.” …

Targeting the LGBTQ community:

“Brazil’s new right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro removed concerns regarding the LGBT community from being considered by a new human rights ministry hours after his inauguration, part of a sweeping set of executive orders targeting some minority groups.

Bolsonaro stripped LGBT concerns from the ministry and named no other federal agency to consider such issues, The Associated Press reported Wednesday.

The former military officer and right-wing politician made incendiary comments about race and sexual orientation during his campaign, saying in 2011 that he would be “incapable of loving a homosexual son.” …”

Donald Trump had a similar strong start with executive orders. Then he faded as he plunged into a quagmire of federal court decisions and congressional dysfunction. Will history repeat itself in Brazil?

    • He may be the Devil, Himself, Dear miss Denise, but, if he is doing The Lord’s work, then so be it.

    • @ Denice, Until Jair or Brazil fights wars around the world to protect israhell and Jewish/zionist interests, the jewnited states is the undisputed champion of international jewry.

      How many billion of dollars is Brasil sending to israhell every year?

    Hi Hunter, I am long time reader of your blog and I am from Brazil.

    Answer to your question: no, in Brazil the executive branch is far more independent from the judiciary branch. The Brazil ‘s president have far more power than any other high position in the judiciary and legislative branch. There will be little opposition in the both legislative houses, and if there is, the president have power to enact provisional legislation without them.

  2. Yes, minorities. Minorities like the blacks feel threatened now. Blacks and mulattos are at the very least 55% of the population. haha
    I put the white population in Brazil at around 10-15%. My brother who is more radical put it at 5-8%.
    I imagine if Brazil had millions of Jews telling negroes how opressed they are by the white devils. It would be a bloodbath.
    Bolsonaro is what Americans call a”boomer”, by definition stupid and stuck in the past.

    • Where I live, I see and know some blacks, but I mostly interact with whites. I have been to all parts of SE Brazil and it is basically the same as where I live. But you are right…. if it were the same as in the US, with Jews saying every minute of the day that whitey is the cause of all their problems.. it WOULD GET very nasty, very quickly. But I don’t think they want that to happen cause they want every other country to be as corrupt (and multi-cultural) as Brazil. And they still want to make Brazil even more multi-cultural than it already is!

  3. My understanding is that he is undermining indigenous land rights in favor of Big Ag and I’m not sure why that would be laudatory at all. Those people are less than a percent of the population and moreover what have they even done to deserve this? Who exactly is this going to help? Between this, the maniacal glorification of Israel, his serial personal failings (including his parda wife (¡Jeb!)…this guy sounds like a foundationally immoral Brazilian neocon.
