Looks like those of you considering relocating to someplace where you can still have a chance to live free might want to consider Brazil.
Jair Bolsonaro was sworn in yesterday as president of Brazil. Mr. Bolsonaro, often known as the “Tropical Trump” for his populist nationalism, has promised an end to socialism in Brazil. Among his more popular policies are a crackdown on crime and returning to citizens the right to armed self-defense.
Mr. Bolsonaro was stabbed by a would-be assassin back in September, during the first round of the presidential election. Although he was seriously wounded and unable to campaign for more than a month, he recovered and made it through the first round, later going on to win in the runoff.
Below is President Bolsonaro’s inaugural speech.
It is with humility and honor that I address all of you, as President of Brazil. And I stand before the entire nation on this day as the day the people began to free themselves from socialism.
Get rid of the inversion of values, of state gigantism and of political correctness.
Elections gave voice to those who had not been heard. And the voice of the streets and of the ballot boxes were very clear, and I am here to respond and once again commit myself to this desire for change.
I am also here to renew our hopes, and remember that if we work together, this change will be possible. Respecting the principles of the democratic state of law, guided by our Constitution and with God in our hearts, from today we will put into practice the project that the majority of the Brazilian people democratically chose; we will promote the transformations that the country needs.
Inspiring, encouraging stuff, and I wish him all the luck in the world. Having already survived one assassination attempt, I’m sure Bolsonaro has few illusions about the kind of bloodthirsty, murderous Leftist filth he’s up against.
