Firebrand President of Brazil Jair Bolsonaro has vowed to fight “Marxist rubbish” in universities.
Not too long ago, Bolsonaro tweeted his desire to use his administrative power to rid Brazilian universities of Marxist influence and bring quality standards to Brazil’s educational system.
Brazilian institutions of higher learning have left a lot to be desired in international rankings. For that reason, Bolsonaro has taken it upon himself to clean house in the Ivory Tower.
Marxist influence in Brazilian culture was also criticized by Ernesto Araújo, Brazil’s Minister of Foreign Affairs. Araújo noted that “cultural Marxism directed from within a seemingly liberal and democratic system, achieved through corruption, intimidation, and thought control” took place during the previous Workers’ Party (PT) administration of Lula da Silva and Dilma Rouseff.
After a decade of political scandals and economic malfeasances, Brazilian voters got fed up with the Workers’ Party and their corruption. Consequently, Jair Bolsonaro threw his hat in the ring as a bold, reform candidate that was willing to challenge the Brazilian status quo. Throughout his presidential campaign, Bolsonaro presented himself as a political maverick that would bring order to the country and make Brazil live up to its hype as an emerging power.
On October 28, 2018, Bolsonaro won resoundingly against Fernando Haddad, securing 55% of the vote.
Two weeks after assuming office, Bolsonaro hit the ground running by signing an executive order that removed the police’s discretionary role in determining civilian’s requests to purchase firearms.
At his side, Bolsonaro has Chicago School-trained economist Paulo Guedes as an economic advisor. Guedes expressed his intent to privatize a host of state-owned industries and overhaul Brazil’s burdensome tax code.
Bolsonaro’s campaign to stamp out Marxism in universities and reform the Brazilian economy is part of a multi-pronged cultural and policy approach to get Brazil back on track.
Ideally, the government’s role should be phased out of education, but Bolsonaro’s measures are a step in the right direction.
Bolsonaro’s election was undoubtedly one the biggest political earthquakes in recent Latin American history.
If Bolsonaro follows through with his plan to defeat cultural Marxism and liberate the Brazilian economy from state control, Brazil will be well on its way to becoming a world power.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
