The drug gangs were the only ones to celebrate the alleged election victory by criminal Lula Oct. 30, firing automatic weapons in the air in the favelas. President Bolsonaro cracked down hard on the Brazilian drug gangs.
…The drug cartels are the armed wing of the Communists. Comando Vermelho controls parts of Rio de Janeiro and was formed 1979 as an alliance between cartels and Communists. If they are eliminated, the risk 0f a civil war will be significantly reduced.
…Hundreds of thousands of Brazilians were protesting again on the weekend, standing outside army bases and pleading for the military to save their country from the Communists and cartels.

Corrupt/illegitimate government and fraudulent elections sound awful familiar. Taking on the cartels to ameliorate those conditions, moreover, requires b@lls of steel from all Brazilians. The mere attempt indicates that their military has not simply become yet another woke component of Communist forces…unlike ours. That, or a replacement strongman awaits in the wings, although admittedly, that fate more likely awaits the United States.
Once upon a time, Americans lead the world in holding their local, state and national governments accountable, but easy times have made physically and intellectually lazy Americans, who have embraced the “Moses Complex…” expecting God to liberate us from our oppressors, without our involvement.
