A TRUMP FOR YOU, AND FOR YOU, AND FOR YOU! A TRUMP FOR EVERYONE!

              :horrormirth:

I just had flashes of Le pen, farage and that dutch guy I can never remember the name of. Vandegoebbels or something.

It's horribly true. And to think that this is the most advanced we've ever been is mildly depressing.

Geert Wilders? Also, don't forget Viktor Orban in Hungary.
Everything comes to an end, reader. It is an old truism to which may be added that not everything that lasts, lasts for long. This latter part is not readily admitted; on the contrary the idea that an air castle lasts longer than the very air of which it is made is hard to get out of a person's head, and this is fortunate, otherwise the custom of making those almost eternal constructions might be lost.

Many thanks.

Let's move this up to "moderately depressing" then. I've just remembered about Greece and Germany.

Only the christard monkeys support bolsomeme,

The same was once true of Trump.

Brazil will probably turn into another Venezuela, all that was worth because now the poor can fly on planes.

Oh my god come on. If you really think Lula/Dilma are in any way comparable to Chavez I have nothing to say to you, except that I had hoped I wouldn't find this here.

He's just a troll, ignore him.

This is kind of funny actually, this shill may well have been led here by this thread and google. It's not like PD has been actively discussing Brazil's politics before (at least not in this depth).

Wow. Just heard of the Chapecoense tragedy - a plane crashed with the whole soccer team in it. Apparently 75 people are already confirmed dead.

Also, 66 year old journalist Caco Barcellos was assaulted while covering a protest in Rio's center. Not by the police, by the protestors (he works for Tv Globo, which has a bad rep and a bad history, they supported the dictatorship for example). People threw a traffic cone at him. It happened on the 16th but I'm only hearing of it now.

2016 just keeps on giving.

Well, shit. That's going to be messy. I'm guessing you've had your share of celebrity deaths down there too, anyone notable that wouldn't have been given much attention north of the equator?

Can't think of anyone actually. I do recall hearing something about a famous 90 year old singer, but perhaps the news was just that she was still alive :lulz:

Yeah, that plane crash is a serious punch in the balls. Those guys were a hell of a cinderella story. Word is the national federation is gonna bend some rules and give them 3 years protection from relegation and some favorable exemptions to some of the transfer rules. Heard that several top-tier European clubs are willing to hook them up with some pretty sweet loans and transfer deals as well. Sounds like there's a real groundswell of support in the soccer community. Were the coaches and/or front office personnel on the plane as well or was it mostly just players?

Hey Sano how much of the Brazilian strand of Discordia is active? I guess I'd like to know if you think it's thriving and whatever other perspective you may have, as you can.

And I hear they are dropping the "car wash" corruption investigations now??


Brazil seems so bleak, man. The whole world is swinging right in a crazy, dangerous way.




At least there are motions that the Supreme Court is going to legalize abortion.

Yeah, they were rising amazingly fast as a soccer team; they also had a fame for playing fair and for having an administration without corruption (a miracle in the field, at least here). It seems at least some of the coaches and personnel died, and some reporters as well (one even played in the national team when he was younger IIRC).

I actually really don't have much of a clue. I think it's mostly dead, tbh. The last time I heard something about it here was probably 5~6 years ago, maybe more. In any case I think brazilians kinda always had a certain discordian sense of humor, so to speak (for example we all collectively started trolling and rooting for germany halfway through the 7-1 in 2014).

And I hear they are dropping the "car wash" corruption investigations now??

There have certainly been talks of pressuring the judiciary to drop it even before Dilma's impeachment, but the situation is so unstable there's a lot of fear of the public outrage. The most they'll try to do is to protect some big names and parties, but even in this I think they're failing. People have always noted how investigations seemed to be shielding the PSDB (very very roughly Brazil's moderate republicans in US terms) from harm, but this has been changing lately.

All in all I'm not too afraid, though. Perhaps this is just a difference of perspective - we are very much used to political crisis, bizarre politicians and the like - not to mention the historical perspective: even with today's hardships the country is better than it was 20 years ago, not to mention 50. In a sense I think we're inoculated against the worst excesses of politics simply because of our experience in dealing with the country's own contraditions, although I'll admit things have taken a downward turn lately (specially through political polarization). The risks of (say) a Bolsonaro presidency are real but shouldn't be overstated, as things stand now I'd say he has at most 10 percent of the vote - the main candidate would have to have really Clinton-like levels of public hatred directed to them for him to be a serious contender. The only one I think would have it is Dilma herself, but she won't be running, and maybe even not her (in my completely unsupported opinion the next president will be either Ciro Gomes or Marina Silva, both with lots of problems but leagues ahead of Bolsonaro, Trump and the like). Plus we'll have 2 years of Trump to watch and warn us.

Now, put a Bolsonaro as a candidate in Europe and you have the potential for a lot of damage. Once he tried inciting xenophobia towards haitians, this didn't work even with his own base. But in France or Italy (or Greece or Poland or...)? That's what I'm worried about.

Tl;dr: Brazil's been in the Weird Times since the 1500s, y'all are just catching up.

EDIT: I could probably make a rant about how brazilians will be the world's heralds for the Strange Times. Don't believe me? One of the latest news is that drug dealers dyed pink the cocaine they sold for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
