Bolsonaro supporters invade Brazil’s Congress, Supreme Court and executive buildings

JTN: Supporters of former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro broke into buildings for Brazil’s National Congress, Supreme Federal Court and the Planalto Palace, the presidential workplace, videos show, as some American politicians are comparing the event to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Protesters appear to have broken glass windows to enter the congressional building in Brasilia around 2:40 p.m. local time. 

Brazilian reporter Renato Souza said President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who was sworn into office last week, was not in the area.

Bolsonaro supporters invaded the federal court building around 3:45 p.m., according to local outlet Metropoles.

As law enforcement threw gas at the protesters, one demonstrator entering the court said, as translated: “God is on our side and will throw all the gas back to them.”

Brazilian George Marques said, originally in Portuguese, that within an hour of invading the federal court, “nothing was left intact, everything destroyed” by the rioters. more

    “The only similarity is both the Brazilian and US elections were stolen, and the thefts were orchestrated by the same people.”

    It’s different in that Brazilians have the balls we need.

  2. The Democrats and Media will use the riot, not yet insurrection, of middle aged citizens of all races to equate Brasilia with Trump and Conservatives. The two events are not related in that in America we know that the election was stolen and do nothing thereby saving our lifestyle but giving up a meaningful Vote. The Nihilist Left has checked this freedom off as gone as a result of their successful Coup. Next they are destroying the value of the Dollar as this will bring down the middle class to a more serf like level. soon, your worthless vote will lose their choice of Trump and Democrats will pick your Choice. At schools of every level, your children are learning that Conservatives are racist, hate science, are supremacists and can be violated with impunity. The Leftist Monolith is world wide, complex and rules every institution including those that are non governmental. An example is the open border group called Catholic Charities which greets the invasion and by itself can destroy the Republic in a few more years. Jews who believe in God, family and America are horrified and frightened by the Jeremy Raskins who hate humankind and stir up deserved animosity by their very existence. The Democrats muted great blacks such as Thomas, Williams the economist, Condoleezza Rice, Ward Connelly and Sowell while spoon feeding the black rabble Sharpton ., Cornell West and George Floyd…yes, all races have a rabble contingent and the Left extols who their role models should be….Fauci comes to mind. So beware, Leftist are in control and will purge as many as their personal safety requires, even if it is everyone on earth. God help the Bolsonaro voting freedom protesters of Brazil and the freedom supporters languishing in the Democrat Hell prisons. I envy Brazilians who are still protesting, I envy with a broken heart the Americans swept up by the Nazi broom of Pelosi and I envy those Republicans who will be harmed and vilified such as Jim Jordan, Matt Gretzky and the Trump family…
