Can we please talk about how Brazil turning into a fascist nightmare?
>SAO PAULO—Newly installed President Jair Bolsonaro targeted Brazil’s indigenous groups, descendants of slaves and the LGBT community with executive orders in the first hours of his administration, moving quickly after a campaign in which the far-right leader said he would radically overhaul many aspects of life in Latin America’s largest nation.

>Sao Paulo’s stock market, meanwhile, jumped 3.56 percent to a record closing of 91,012 points as new Cabinet ministers reinforced the intent to privatize state-owned companies and a Brazilian arms maker benefited from Bolsonaro’s plans to loosen gun controls. Similar spikes in stock prices also occurred during the presidential campaign.

>One of the orders issued late Tuesday, hours after Bolsonaro’s inauguration, likely will make it all but impossible for new lands to be identified and demarcated for indigenous communities. Areas set aside for “Quilombolas,” as descendants of former slaves are known, are also affected by the decision.

>Another order removed the concerns of the LGBT community from consideration by the new human rights ministry.

>In a move favorable to his allies in agribusiness, which have criticized giving large swaths of lands to the indigenous, Bolsonaro transferred the responsibilities for delineating indigenous territories from the Justice Ministry to the Agriculture Ministry. The new agriculture minister, Tereza Cristina, is part of the agribusiness caucus in Brazil’s lower house and has opposed requests from native communities.

Sure makes insecure white men in Brazil feel better about themselves.

I mean, Brazil's new government is telling indigenous groups the only action they can take now is violent resistance, no?

Only good guy with gun can stop bad guy with gun!

The natives are a byproduct, it's just about selling land cheap in large numbers.

Let's hope so, his face is unbearable.

My expectation is that he rushes through his labor reforms, nothing improves for the average citizen, and he winds up with Macron-level approving ratings (they have, essentially, the same project, although Macron might be a little more secular). Unless he opens up, like, neo-colonial settlements in the Amazons (which would be an unbridled ecological disaster), he doesn't have a release valve for working class discontent. With the PT's credibility shot, that discontent is going to find other, more radical, channels for expression.
