Brazil Election – Left-Wing ‘The Guardian’ Criticizes Temer – Preparing PT Return?

||| The Goldwater Mockup of The Guardian Article.png |||

Although many of Machiavelli’s advice in his classic tale ‘The Prince’ could refer to the situation that is unfolding in Brazil, no quote is more fit than what the author Ms. Dawn Klehr stated in her excellent novel ‘If You Wrong Us’ (a title was stolen from Shakespeare’s ‘The Merchant of Venice’ of course).

She said: “Revenge, I’ve come to learn, is not impulsive, or reactionary, or blind. It’s calculating, patient and observant. And if it’s going to work, the timing must be perfect.”

Paraphrasing that logic, you could conclude that when a left-wing global newspaper like The Guardian starts to admit that a left-wing leader of a major nation (Brazil) is ruining the country, whereas they usually back the party (Workers Party, PT) that man (Mr. Michel Temer) is a member of, there must be a strategic motive behind it.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="pt" dir="ltr">The Guardian: &quot;Política linha-dura de Temer arruína o Brasil&quot; (…) &quot;A despeito de ser um governante sem mandato, ele mata os programas sociais que tiraram 40 milhões da pobreza&quot; - <a href="https://t.co/VWiNK34aDs">https://t.co/VWiNK34aDs</a></p>&mdash; Anna Júlia Spencer (@annajuliaspenc1) <a href="https://twitter.com/annajuliaspenc1/status/1035341196787236864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 31, 2018</a></blockquote>

Could it be that by shifting the blame for Brazil’s ills solely to President Temer, the Guardian is preparing global readers for the return of a candidate Workers’ Party (PT) who they will then back?

Time will tell of course but there are only 17 days left till the PT has to officially assign their candidates. Political analysts assume that Mr. Lula da Silva will try and keep the momentum going in the polls and then shift over his party’s nomination to Mr. Haddad.

In any case, The Guardian published a stark open letter today criticizing Brazil’s President Temer for all Brazil’s woes, stating: “31 August marks two years since Dilma Rousseff’s removal as president of Brazil when 61 senators trampled on the political will expressed at the ballot box by the 54 million Brazilians who had elected her. Since then, the illegitimate Michel Temer-led government has shown its true colours with hardline austerity policies.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="pt" dir="ltr">Edição do jornal inglês “The Guardian” lembra o aniversário da derrubada de Dilma Rousseff do poder e aborda o golpista Michel Temer de modo destrutivo <a href="https://t.co/xesEbk6PAw">https://t.co/xesEbk6PAw</a></p>&mdash; Et Urbs Magna (@Et_Urbs_Magna) <a href="https://twitter.com/Et_Urbs_Magna/status/1035365236352667648?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 31, 2018</a></blockquote>

<script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

“Despite having no mandate, the government has reversed social programmes that took 40 million people out of poverty. Its policies have plunged the economy into deeper crisis, damaged public services, and hurt the living standards of millions.”

“This has been accompanied by the ongoing persecution of former president Lula and an increase in violence and repression against trade unions, social movements, and other progressive forces.”

“It is perhaps not surprising therefore that Temer’s approval ratings are in single figures. We stand with the millions of Brazilians resisting these ongoing attacks on democracy and social progress.”

A surprising move by The Guardian who will probably back any other left-wing candidate and present him as the solution for Brazil in the days to come.

The plot thickens.
