Considering he doesn't take the pandemic seriously. He's been using it as cover whilst the gaze of the world is on it.
I think his model is actually more Hugo Chavez, only dressed in right wing garb. But yeah: deathsquads are passé. What we have now is “democracy” but murders and whatnot being allowed by “popular acclaim” when they are directed at “enemies of the people”.
I also think that, like many Brazilians of his color and class, Bozo would be absolutely pleased to see 5,000,000 dead citizens or so, as long as they are concentrated among the poor, black, and old. In fact, yesterday, one of he economic ministers flat out said that every retiree dead makes Brazil economically stronger. He’s more like a Cecil Rhodes in his intellectual lineage than a Mugabe.
I don’t know if we can call this “genocide”. Mass murder by proxy, at any rate.
It’s darkly hilarious, however, because Bozo is just so incompetent at it all.
If you want to know what Brazilian politics look like now, picture the Joker juggling babies and running chainsaws to the tune of “Yakkity Sax” (aka The Benny Hill Show theme).
