In the space of just 15 years, for example, the Chinese have succeeded in re-colonizing the entire continent of Africa. Didn’t think that could happen? Well, it is happening. In Africa, China now calls the shots and takes the natural resources for itself. Period. As of tonight, there is only one remaining African country that dares to recognize Taiwan, and it happens to be among the smallest countries in Africa, Swaziland. Everyone else on the continent obeys Beijing.
But wait a second. How can this be happening? Isn’t colonialism racist and bad? Yes, it is and no one’s worse and more racist than the Chinese. Go on Chinese social media sometime and see how they describe the Africans they’ve subjugated. It’s horrifying. So, why isn’t the New York Times writing stories about any of this? You know why – because the New York Times is on China’s side. That’s why they all but ignore the brutal Chinese colonization of Latin America, which is also in full swing right now.
Colonialism violates everything the New York Times once claimed to believe in, but that’s okay, because they never really believed any of it anyway. It was always about power.
We came to Brazil this week to see for ourselves what the Chinese are doing to Latin America. We’re making a documentary about it for our “Tucker Carlson Originals” series. Brazil has the last pro-American government in Latin America. It’s our single most important ally in the Western Hemisphere.
Allowing Brazil to become a colony of China would be a significant blow to us and potentially a very serious military threat. The Biden administration appears to be in favor of it. One person who is emphatically not in favor of it is the president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro. So, of course, the American media hate him. Here’s some of their slander.
CHRIS HAYES, MSNBC: The United States isn’t the only country lurching dangerously towards authoritarianism. It is happening all over, indeed. Just yesterday, for example, Brazilians elected Jair Bolsonaro.
JASON JOHNSON, MSNBC: Usually you don’t get rid of an aspiring dictator through the electoral process. Brazil is going to have trouble with Bolsonaro.
LINETTE LOPEZ, BUSINESS INSIDER: It’s that same authoritarian, like women-hating, racist energy. He’s the Trump of Brazil.
MSNBC REPORTER: President Bolsonaro doesn’t believe in social distancing, doesn’t want lockdowns — much, much more extreme than President Trump.
FAREED ZAKARIA, MSNBC: Brazil’s far-right nationalist president Jair Bolsonaro, spoke at an event in Dallas. These two men and fellow travelers like Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin represent the growing global threat to the ideals of liberalism.
These are people whose research consists of 3 minutes on Wikipedia on the way to the studio. “He’s a racist. Of course, he is.” He “doesn’t want lockdowns.” There’s your proof.
But it is the last clip from plagiarist Fareed Zakaria that explains why they’re so mad at Bolsonaro. Bolsonaro, Fareed Zakaria tells us, represents a “growing global threat to the ideas of liberalism” – liberalism, meaning neoliberalism, meaning globalism
And in fact, that is true. Bolsonaro is no Justin Trudeau. He’s not a low-IQ fascist who would be working as an Instagram influencer if he didn’t have his own army. He’s not the president of Ukraine who shuts down television stations that dare to criticize him and outlaws opposition parties and arms Nazis.
In conventional terms, Bolsonaro is, in fact, liberal. He has done nothing to stop civil liberties in Brazil. But at the same time, he is a nationalist. He cares about his country. He resists China. Therefore, he must be stopped. George Soros hates him and so does Joe Biden. He’s not with the program.
So naturally, we wanted to meet him. Yesterday we did. We sat with Bolsonaro for more than an hour and the first thing we learn is that the left in Brazil hates him very much. They tried to kill him when he first ran for president four years ago. With very little money in the backing of no party, he came out of nowhere to get 57 million votes. But he almost didn’t survive to be elected.
He was stabbed by a leftist almost to death at a rally, at which point the left funded lawyers to come in and rescue his attempted murderer – an amazing story that hasn’t gotten a ton of coverage in the United States. He’s an authoritarian, says MSNBC. All right.
So, we asked Bolsonaro about the stabbing in our conversation, also asked him about his Christian faith, which is on display, something else that triggers them. We asked about our Supreme Court stance on abortion, his views on gun rights, and we asked him fundamentally, why do you think you’re so hated?
