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.
Bronx Bobblehead AOC Believes that the Current Budget Cut to NYPD is Not Enough
On June 30, 2020, congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that New York City’s budget cuts to the police department were not sufficiently adequate, declaring that “defunding police means defunding police.”
“Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools,” the congresswoman remarked in a statement.
The defund the police meme has caused some debate in Democrat circles. Some Democrats believe that the phrase shouldn’t be taken literally and is only a slogan for police reforms.
“It does not mean counting overtime cuts as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “If these reports are accurate, then these proposed ‘cuts’ to the NYPD budget are a disingenuous illusion. This is not a victory. The fight to defund policing continues.”
On June 30, the New York City Council and Mayor Bill de Blasio came to a deal to slash $1 billion from the NYPD’s $6 billion budget.
“We’re acting on that call for justice. I believe it is our mission to redistribute resources to those who need them the most,” de Blasio stated, “This is real redistribution.”
Activists that agree with AOC’s radical anti-cop reforms said they won’t put up with any plan that merely reallocates money and does nothing to substantially gut police departments.
“No funny math. No budget musical chairs,” radical anti-law enforcement activists said in a letter on June 30 to the mayor and council. “We’ll know if you fought for our communities or whether you will let the NYPD continue to be treated as if they’re above the law, even in the budget.”
New York City is currently suffering from a $9 billion shortfall in revenue due to the Wuhan virus shutdowns.
Defunding the police will only make New York City less secure and leave New Yorkers with virtually no options left for security.
