Brazil: Lula is the most viable alternative against neo-fascism

Datafolha reveals that Bolsonaro melts in the presidency and that Lula is the most viable alternative against neo-fascism

“In normal times, Lula would be summoned by those who helped strike him to rescue Brazil from the abyss and rebuild the project of a Brazilian civilization. But will there be such greatness on the part of the scammers? And more than that, there will be ‘ permission “of imperialism for Brazil to liberate itself? Seeing in 2020, “says journalist Leonardo Attuch, commenting on the Datafolha survey

 

Bolsonaro reaches the end of the first year of his tenure with the worst rating of an elected president since the return to democracy, as someone who negatively affects the image of Brazil in the world as a character whose word can not be trusted and as someone who does not behaves as presidential decorum requires . That is: even if his fall was temporarily halted due to some economic relief, data revealed this Sunday by Datafolha indicate that he melts in the presidency of the Republic.

The data also indicate that the perception of anti-corruption has also declined – which is natural for a government involved in the electoral orange grove and Queiroz crack schemes – and that the size of the so-called “pockets of cattle” is 14% of the population. Brazilian . That is: this would be the size of the hard core of pockets, which today deceives a smaller number of Brazilians, who seem tired in the face of so many insults that come from Brasilia and such grotesque governance from the point of view of civilization.

What could save Bolsonaro would be an economic drag, but the signs in this field are still contradictory. Although unemployment has fallen relatively, gains in perceived welfare are limited due to the precariousness of new vacancies and lower incomes. Aside from this, the devalued real contributes to higher inflation, especially of food, which affects the poorer population, which today rejects and feels betrayed by pockets.

As Marcos Coimbra, director of Vox Populi says, at the end of the year, what sustains Bolsonaro is only time. “Most of the population, indifferent to politics and misinformed, think it is too early to decree that it is no good. If government time were not yet small, the demands would be higher and patience less. Incompetence would not be excused as a result. of inexperience or ‘novelty’, he says, in an article published here in 247.

The question that arises before Brazilians, especially those who imagine themselves to be “elite”, is that it is felt to maintain, in the name of a neoliberal policy that promises only a chicken flight, the support of an unreliable president. without decorum and that crumbles the image of Brazil in the world. More than that, someone who is perceived abroad as a threat to civilization.

And so we come to the trap in which Brazil has been placed in recent years. The one who raised Brazil’s image in the world and led the government best rated by most Brazilians, former President Lula, was the target of an intense campaign of hatred, driven by local prejudices and major international interests, but still remains the same. most viable name to defeat Brazilian neo-fascism. The game, as the columnist Merval Pereira of Globo says , is polarized between Lula and Bolsonaro and projects that call themselves “center” are unfeasible.

From Bolsonaro, nothing can be expected but civilization degradation. Lula, in turn, also defined his challenge. “There is only one sense to my freedom: it is to fight for the Brazilian people to have the right to smile again in that country. To fight for the people to have the right to eat three times a day, the right to study, to have access to have the right to eat meat, “he said.

In normal times, the choice between these two poles would be obvious. Lula would be summoned by those who helped strike him to rescue Brazil from the abyss and rebuild the project of a Brazilian civilization. But is there such greatness on the part of the scammers? And, more than that, will there be the “permission” of imperialism for Brazil to liberate itself or some more forceful action of the people of Bacurau? Seeing in 2020.

By way of comparison, in 2011, also the first year of Dilma Rousseff’s (PT) government, the press made her a hell of a 2.7% “little guy” in those boom times.

Note the dear reader that, using the calculator, the petista’s GDP was 4.5 times higher than the captain’s little pen.

Still souring rice, the Financial Times newspaper suspects Bolsonaro has overpriced its small size to impress the financial market.
