When you disenfranchise people enough, they will eventually rise up and fight back. And that’s what’s happening right now in Brazil; as thousands of angry Bolsonaro supporters stormed Congress.
Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva has branded protestors who stormed Congress as ‘vandals and fascists’ – with the scenes being similar to that of Trump supporters January 6 take-over.
The supporters of far-right ex-President Jair Bolsonaro invaded the Congress building, the Supreme Court, presidential palace and are calling for the military to overthrow current President Luiz Inacio.
Left-wing veteran Inacio has only been in power for a week, after being inaugurated a week ago as supporters of the former president claim the election was stolen.
Brazilian officials are vowing to hunt down all the protesters.
The new communist government will probably take a page out of the Biden regime’s playbook and turn their own citizens into political prisoners.
According to President da Silva, all of the rioters will be identified and punished for their actions – as well as pledging to find those who have paid for the movement.
United States President Joe Biden’s administration condemned the attacks, with Secretary of State Anthony Blinken calling the protests ‘attacks on Brazil’s Presidency, Congress, and Supreme Court’ in a Tweet Sunday afternoon.
‘Using violence to attack democratic institutions is always unacceptable. We join @lulaoficial in urging an immediate end to these actions,’ he added.
President Biden chimed in too, saying ‘it’s outrageous’ when questioned about the riots during his trip to US southern border.
Supporters of Bolsonaro could be seen breaking through the barriers and entering the building. It comes after da Silva, known as Lula, defeated far-right Bolsonaro in an October election.
Others demonstrators were gathered outside the presidential palace and Supreme Court, although it was not immediately clear whether they had managed to break into the buildings.
Bolsonaro supporters have been protesting against Lula’s electoral win since October 30. Shocking footage showed how gangs of protestors beat a police officer arriving on horseback to the ground.
URGENTE: Invasores quebram vidraças da chapelaria do Congresso e invadem a Câmara dos Deputados. Extremistas já estão no Salão Verde e nos anexos do prédio. Também houve invasão ao Palácio do Planalto. Presidente Lula não está no local. pic.twitter.com/lP91pLqTuf

And just like in the US, there was a surprising lack of security at the Brazilian capital just prior to the breach. And right on cue, everyone is blaming Bolsonaro for the uprising.
Almost makes you wonder if Ray Epps and the rest of the FBI were in the crowd as well…
