Conservative Jair Bolsonaro Elected President Of Brasil
Breitbart ^ | 19-28-18 | Martel

Brazilians elected Jair Bolsonaro of the right-wing Social Liberal Party (PSL) their new president Sunday, granting him a double-digit lead over socialist opponent Fernando Haddad. Bolsonaro won the first round of voting in early October, but not by more than the 50 percent needed to prevent a second round runoff against the runner-up. While his lead diminished somewhat in the past week, official vote tallies counting 98.5 percent of precincts confirm Bolsonaro winning with over 55 percent of the vote.

This is great news.

The left here is imploding on Twitter just like 2016

My kin down there are jubilant and hopeful for order and safety again

Something actually lacking since the Junta

I wish I had kept in touch with some of my Brazilian Hoppean friends. Or at least had waited a few months to get Perma-banned from Twitter...lol.

Landslide...but as with Brexit or even Trump’s election, it’s important to have a long term perspective and patience with regard to the ramifications of this victory. The establishment will fight back hard.

Brazilians: Congratulations, but get ready. The battle to save your country has only just begun.

My brother’s Brazilian girlfriend is delighted with Bolsinaro’s victory. Now an American citizen, she voted for Trump and sees them as representing common ideas and aspirations. Who knows but we may in time see the entire hemisphere revitalized by an American-Brazilian alliance that promotes conservative policies.

“My kin down there are jubilant and hopeful for order and safety again”

At Christmas, my brother’s Chilean gf told me she is very happy for their version of a Donald Trump for similar reasons.

I saw a vid abt the new Brazilian Prez a few days ago on YT, put out by the NY Times, and one from earlier today abt how he has many female supporters also by the same.

The Z is anglicized

Latinos use the S

It’s acceptable either way but the Z is foreign to Brasilians

Have some friends from Brazil.

I haven’t spoken with them today, but I know that they were hoping Jair would win.

From the Reuters article linked by Drudge:

Far-right Bolsonaro wins Brazil presidential race

Far-right lawmaker Jair Bolsonaro won......Many Brazilians are concerned that Bolsonaro, an admirer of Brazil's 1964-1985 military dictatorship and a defender of its use of torture on leftist opponents, will trample on human rights, curtail civil liberties and muzzle freedom of speech.....has vowed to crack down on crime in Brazil's cities and farm belt by granting police more autonomy to shoot at criminals. He also wants to let more Brazilians buy weapons to fight crime.

No media bias here.

Lion, and Tigers, and Bears!

Oh my!
