Though it's getting little to no coverage in Western media, there's a strong possibility Brazil could elect a pro-gun, pro-family nationalist as their next President.
Former paratrooper Jair Bolsonaro, 62, has been dubbed "Brazil's Trump" because of his anti-globalist, nationalist policies and bold personality. He's been running second in the polls and the man in first could be barred from running due to a corruption conviction.
As Reuters reported last week:
A seven-term congressman, Bolsonaro is emerging as the law-and-order and anti-corruption candidate for the October 2018 vote. His support is fed by a surge in violent crime and Brazil’s worst-ever graft scandal, which has implicated much of the political class, including President Michel Temer.I covered Reuters' article and praised Bolsonaro's run late last week. My article got picked up by the Brazilian independent media outlet Renova Media under the headline, "U.S. Independent Media Praises Bolsonaro: "Pro-Gun Nationalist and Pro-Family."
Jair Bolsonaro himself saw the article and shared it to his 625,000 followers on Twitter:
Outside of that one Reuters report, there's a near total blackout on his potential candidacy. I asked Brazilians to tell me why they're supporting Bolsonaro for President in the comments of my article and this is how they responded:
Gustavo Schneider said:
I support Bolsonaro because:
Nelson Pedrozo said:
I make Gustavo Schneider's words mine, and would add:Mittzu said:
1 - I support mister Bolsonaro because he is the only right-wing politician (and has been for at least 2 decades) running for the 2018 election.
Raphael M. said:
He will be the only president that Brazilians [can] be proud to call "my president."Felipe Cunha said:
He's a good guy, he's completly against PC so sometimes he could look quite bad but if you take a moment to listen to him you will see that he's 99,9% right.

With due particularities, Bolsonaro is for Brazil what Trump is for the United States of America, the political and media establishment of their countries does not like any of them, and the leftist side of the political spectrum depends on the most ridiculous narratives, and manipulations of the masses, to try to attack them.
My opinion: Bolsonaro is really a great character, brave and patriotic. But the problem is that the Republic, unlike the American republic, is corrupt and antidemocratic from its foundation.Jones Lumena de Azevedo said:
He defends the Family, is pro-gun because we know that only bandits are armed and we good citizens are unarmed, he is against this socialist / communist left, he will be elected because we know that most Brazilians think the same, Bolsonaro2018.Davi Martins said:
I am Brazilian, and I am gonna vote for Bolsonaro in 2018, for simple reasons. First of all he is not corrupt , until now the huge police operation havent found anything agains him , second of all he represents the conservative movement in Brazil, movement that no other candidate supports. He is also pro guns and that is good for all the population, he also wants to change the way our economy goes and stop giving our natural resources for free and come on, if all the corrupt politicians say bullshit about him but still think they are the correct ones, then it makes think that he is better choice for 2018.[Some formatting and spelling errors were corrected to improve readability.]
Brazil is a massive country with over 206 million people and has the world's seventh-largest economy by GDP. They elected a former Marxist guerrilla to be their president in 2011 and she looted the place and destroyed their economy. The country has been so beaten down they're finally ready for change and Jair Bolsonaro is as good as it gets.
Patriotic nationalists across the West should do everything in their power to support his candidacy.
