Regardless of what will happen next Tuesday, this September 7 has already gone down in history as the saddest September 7 of all time.

By Marcelo Zero

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has just appropriated Independence Day on September 7 in Brazil for his political policy purposes.

It is appropriated Rio’s Christ the Redeemer statue or the state oil company Petrobras, the crime would be less serious.

September 7th it should be a great civic festival that includes all Brazilians, regardless of party colors or ideological preferences. But this year, it will it will be an exclusive event bolsonaristas in support of their “Myth” and, worse, defying attack or even attack democratic institutions.

There are many warnings about avoidance riots, but the great rebellion is already happened without one person taking to the streets. By appropriation Independence Day, Bolsonaro just cracked Constitution, laws, traditions and rules pluralistic democracy.

I imagine the sadness of parents who will not be able to take their children to traditional September 7 parades because they do not want to be associated with a partisan political act that defies democracy.

If this is not a crime of responsibility, I don’t know what else could be. This is typical of fascist movements present themselves as monopoly holders done patriotism and love for fatherland.

Bolsonaristas they think they are the only patriots, so they are the only ones eligible to participate on September 7th. They are the only ones “Green and yellow”, the fences of another color remained. Those who oppose them – who do not agree with them in any way – are not real Brazilians. They are traitors who should leave the country or, as the president honestly said, go to the “end of the beach” – and a military euphemism in the age of dictatorship for execution.

During during the dictatorship there was a slogan “Brazil: love it or leave it”. But Brazil listed in ththe neo-fascist slogan is not Brazil itself a nation was a dictatorship. Anyone who didn’t like it it implied had to go into exile or “disappear”.

What a Bolsonaro is even worse. By appropriating September 7, which even the dictatorship did not do, Bolsonaro surpassed Louis XIV. and announces: “I am Brazil”!!

This it is a crime further aggravated the fact that on September 7 there is little independence to celebrate. The bolsonarista foreign policy there is diminished the country, strengthened the relationship of servitude sectors The extreme right of the United States has turned Brazil into a kind of international party.

Ideological subordination to Trumpism, alienation of strategic production sectors, unconditionally liberalization economy, disinvestment in regional integrations and BRICs, insertion of ours military forces in the U.S. Southern Command and the delivery of the Alcantara missile base to the United States are all limiting factors. Brazilians the ability to celebrate true independence. They also show how the bolsonaristas declared love for the fatherland is not reflected in their actual practice.

Regardless of what will happen next Tuesday, this September 7 has already gone down in history as the saddest September 7 of all time. Instead of a a day of celebration, joy, inclusion and unity of all Brazilians, Bolsonaro turned into a day fear, hatred and division and the ultimatum to democracy.

There is no greater crime against the homeland than this.
