The white upper middle class of Brazil are taking it to the streets after being prompted to do so by every corporatist media organization in the country. It’s time to take a stand against the “corruption” of President Dilma Rousseff and have her (and more importantly, her political party the Workers’ Party (PT) ) impeached. So said Brazil’s lower house of congress last night when they voted to begin impeachment proceedings against the standing president of the country. It should be noted, the member of the lower house who led that proceeding is a political opponent of the president and is himself facing serious corruption charges.
The mostly white petite bourgeoisie protesters screamed in glee. I’ll bet there was good sex in the pale Brazilian suburbs last night.
The rest of the country… not so much.
Yes folks, this is a coup. It’s a color revolution/regime change operation every bit as much as the one taking place in Syria or the one that took place in Libya. The only difference is, they are using the impeachment process to remove the troubling leader as opposed to “humanitarian” bombing campaigns or “moderate” terrorist mercenaries.
