Bolsonaro appeared in a livestream on Facebook after nhis election, saying:  “We could not continue to flirt with socialism, communism, populism, and the extremism of the left.”

In Sao Paulo protests against the election of the fascist were suppressed by military police (PM). Cops shot rubber bullets and tear gas against people who started to sing songs against Bolsonaro at the Masp (Sao Paulo Museum).

In Niteroi, a suburb of Rio de Janeroi, there was a military parade with Bolsonaro supporters.

The Intercept published some quotes of Jair Bolsonaro. The quotes makes clear what kind of fascist Bolsonaro is: 

“I am in favor of a dictatorship, a regime of exception.”

 Open session of the Câmara dos Deputados, 1993

Interviewer: If you were the President of the Republic today, would you close the National Congress?

“There’s no doubt about it. I’d do a coup on the same day! It [the Congress] doesn’t work! And I’m sure at least 90 percent of the population would throw a party, would applaud, because it does not work. Congress today is good for nothing, brother, it just votes for what the president wants. If he is the person who decides, who rules, who trumps the Congress, then let’s have a coup quickly, go straight to a dictatorship.”

“Through the vote you will not change anything in this country, nothing, absolutely nothing! It will only change, unfortunately, when, one day, we start a civil war here and do the work that the military regime did not do. Killing some 30,000, starting with FHC [then-president Fernando Henrique Cardoso], not kicking them out, killing! If some innocent people are going to die, fine, in any war innocents die.”
