A New Strongman in Brazil and America's Future?

For Americans on the right, Brazil is synonymous with “Brazilification.” This creeping specter awaits future America, when the Left’s great “browning” occurs sometime in the 2050s. According to statistics released in July 2017, Brazil’s population is estimated to be about 207,353,391 people. 47.7-percent of those people are white. They are the sons and daughters of the nation’s founding Portuguese stock, along with heavy admixtures from other European nations like Spain, Germany, Ukraine, and Italy. Lebanese people, Syrians, and Palestinian Arabs are also considered white by the government in Brasilia.

Given recent DNA evidence that conclusively shows that Lebanese people have very little Arab blood, and in fact share most of their genetic material with Jews, Greeks, and other Mediterranean peoples, most "race realists" in the United States might not have a problem with labeling the Lebanese as “white.” Some might draw the line at Palestinians, but suffice it to say that Brazil’s definition of white is not exactly in line with the traditional idea of the WASP in the United States.

The next largest population in the Land of the Palms are various types of mixed race people. These Pardo people include all kinds of combinations. Just use your imagination. Such race mixing was actually championed for a time by Portuguese imperialists and their supporters.

Brazilian sociologist Gilberto Freyre came up with the concept of Lusotropicalism during the days of the Estado Novo in Lisbon (which Freyre supported). This idea claimed that because the Portuguese people are the offspring of Celts, Romans, Germanic Visigoths, and North African Berbers, they are less resistant to the idea of miscegenation. Unlike other right-wing intellectuals of the same time period (it should be noted that Freyre moved rightward from the Marxian Left), Freyre viewed miscegenation as a positive thing, and considered it one of the key reasons why Portuguese colonialism was preferable to the colonial systems of more purity-minded nations like Great Britain, France, and Germany.

Well, it is safe to say that Freyre’s dream of a mixed-race harmony in Brazil is still far off. In Brazil, just like everywhere else in the world, whites and East Asians do the best economically, and where they are a majority, crime is considerably lower. By any definition, the best places to live in Brazil are the states of Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul. The former is about 87-percent white, while the latter is 81-percent white. This is no coincidence.

The worst parts of Brazil, from the favelas of Rio to the northern coastal state of Alagoas (2012 homicide rate was 64.6 murders per 100,000 people), have mixed race or black majorities. Overall, Brazil can lay claim to the dubious distinction of being the world’s murder capital.

Because of this, and because of the country’s competing racial groups, Brazil is the very embodiment of what the late, great Sam Francis called “anarcho-tyranny.” In order to keep the peace, military and civil police in Brazil are known for cracking skulls and shooting first. In America, Black Lives Matter go on a multi-day riot if one black hood is killed by a police officer. In Brazil, six people a day are killed by police, and most of the dead are brown and black. Some of these cops even moonlight as hitmen on the side.

That’s the other problem with advanced multiculturalism—corruption and cynicism are rife. It is telling that Brazil ran best when it was run by a military dictatorship.

That is at least the opinion of Jair Bolsonaro, the man who has been described by the American press as Brazil’s Donald Trump. While both men share a love for bombast and a skill for verbally cutting down their enemies, Bolsonaro is far more radical, or rather reactionary than President Trump.

For much of his adult life, Bolsonaro was an officer in the Brazilian Army’s parachutist corps. He served during the days of the military dictatorship when the death penalty was used liberally and far-Left activists like disgraced former president Dilma Rousseff were tortured for advocating for Maoism or Marxist-Leninism. Bolsonaro’s love for the military government is quite sincere. While casting his vote for Rousseff’s impeachment, Bolsonaro dedicated his action to Brilhante Ustra, the former army intelligence chief who oversaw the military government’s suppression of Communist agitators. One of the people that Colonel Ustra personally interrogated was Rousseff herself.

Another infamous incident came after Workers’ Party official Maria do Rosario gave a speech in the Chamber of Deputies denouncing the former military regime. Rosario paid special attention to the fact that the military government often used rape as a way to humiliate prisoners. Bolsonaro took the microphone next and told Rosario that she had nothing to fear from him because she was not “worthy” enough to rape.

Rather than put his heavy foot on the brakes, Bolsonaro has only continued to accelerate. He told the Brazilian press, which is as pozzed as the American, British, German, and French press, that he’d prefer a dead son to a gay one. Bolsonaro encourages the beating of children in order to prevent homosexuality in adulthood. He confirmed as much to lesbian actress Ellen Page’s face during a documentary made for Viceland.

These words have of course received wide condemnation from the left-wing press and left-wing politicians. The openly gay Jean Wyllys, a former contestant on Brazil’s version of "Big Brother," spat on Bolsonaro before being escorted out of the Chamber of Deputies. By the way, Wyllys, a member of the Socialism and Liberty Party, has been named one of the top personalities with “an outstanding commitment to diversity.” In Brazil as in the United States, a populist-nationalist is loathed by a far-Left ideologue who has the backing of international corporations.

Here’s the funny thing: Bolsonaro is on track to be the next president of Brazil. His closest rival is the former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, the smiley-faced socialist who not only wrecked the Brazilian economy but who also has a long rap sheet littered with various charges of corruption.

Bolsonaro’s success could be a case of being the best option out of a sea of horrible options. Or, as was in the case in the United States, Brazilians have woken up to a new sense of nationalism. These voters are tired of chronic inflation, endemic corruption, and far-Left activism that only serves to make the country’s already dangerous streets even darker. Bolsonaro is Trump on steroids. He has to be because Brazil is America’s future in the present day.

For us, Brazil is what we have to look forward to unless we solve our immigration system. If we don’t, and the United States continues its process of “browning,” then only a military dictatorship or secession could preserve the unique American nation. By that point, another Donald Trump would not be enough; America would need to have an enlightened despot that could produce both a robust stock market and a fully stocked dungeon.

Bolsonaro proves that Brazil is far from lost, and furthermore, Bolsonaro’s success could be seen as a ray of hope for those nationalists who stay up at night worrying about America’s coming demographic apocalypse. However, the story of Brazil should be a napalm bomb to the Republican Party and all those “conservatives” who value the constitution and their fly-by-night principles. The constitution will not save America (it certainly hasn’t preserved our liberties), and promising tax cuts and limited government will certainly not save America. Future conservatives in this country will look more like Jair Bolsonaro than Ted Cruz or Rand Paul.

You’ve been warned.
