Honestly? It's quite possible that the stab attack was faked. No, I'm not joking.
There's a video which compiled footage from a bunch of different phone cameras at the secene of the crime (there must have been hundreds after all), supposedly showing his security detail all but puppeteer the inept perp, Weekend at Bernie's
-style, into doing the deed. I confess I haven't watched it simply for the sake of sanity. If it turns out this entire retarded mess started because of a shoddy false flag stabbing which literally the entire media went along with… it would be too clown world for words. I'd rather remain in doubt and preserve some semblance of peace of mind.
Besides that supposed footage, there has always been plenty of damning evidence. There was no blood whatsoever, the attack happened while he was being carried and very visible whereas obviously waiting until he was on the ground would have been much a far better opportunity to strike, the attacker frequented a firing range which, at the time, had been visited by a couple of Bozo's sons, it was the only time his second son (the ultracloseted, internet-addled failson with daddy issues) met with daddy during his election tour of the country, Bozo didn't pursue his case further once the attacker had been deemed mentally unfit, there's evidence that Bozo had some form of bowel tumor and the operation scars fit the bill, the surgeon is an oncologist and cancer expert, and, last but definitely not least, there's no way the hundreds of atavist subhumans in the crowd wouldn't have torn an attacker to shreds without multiple people protecting him.
>why no one has impeached him yet
I have typed about 3 long-winded replies to this post, and I have posted about this probably more than about any other topic in the BR threads, yet I feel I haven't been able to properly my ideas. You know those times when you have a complicated memeplex in your head which you have been thinking on and honing and adding to it and it all makes perfect sense for you since you built it up, but you can't communicate its totality? I feel like that, like I keep repeating the whole thing bit by bit, but the connections between those parts are too many to be conveyed and/or grasped, at least as far as my argumentative capacity goes.
Let me try to limit my reply to describe the issue as it is instead of narrating the events which led to it.
We're in a sort of psychological state of exception, an unpredicted side effect of the Car Wash brainwashing which aimed to create a political state of exception to purge PT away from power, in which people seemincapable of judging facts by themselves. Besides becoming dependent on media cartels for news (an old problem), they seem to have become dependent on them to know what to think about them. Making sure he only ever appears before a friendly, arranged crowd is enough to make people think he's popular and doing a good job, having no one ever call out his imbecility is enough to disguise his retardation and so on. Also, in the absence of a media campaign for this or that cause, people seem to treat politics as just some natural phenomenon over which they have no control or even as a TV show, which became uncomfortably literal with the live transmissions of the Senate enquiry. On first sight, they don't seem to make a connection between their lives and (increasingly worse) material conditions with the political process, although that would be wrong; of course they know that on a rational level that this relation is real, but that knowledge/belief doesn't translate into actions/behavior because they're not being prompted to do it. That's what I call omninormalization: if the media (not just news but also celebrities, influencers and the apparent public opinion on the internet) treating something as normal, no matter how absurd, cretinous or even criminal that thing is, it flies. There's no longer a widely spread, coherent hyperreality (unlike during the CW brainwashing, media is divided now, even if it's between horrible people and horribler people), which led to that chloroquine insanity, among other absurdities. Bolsonaro has most of the media on his side, thus he can commit crimes on camera and get away with it. Since there's no public outcry on media and consequently no public outcry in the streets, other authorities can completely ignore it as well – which works out great for them, because even the ones who aren't his accomplices are partially responsible for this by way of their support or leniency of the CW brainwashing so they let sleeping dogs lie.
Have you ever walked down a crowded place, spotted someone doing something utterly out of place but absolutely no one does anything about it? Some people ignore it, some are visibly weirded out and look around for other people's reaction (like you did) yet no one openly acknowledges the absurdity of the situation in front of everybody, so everybody acts like there's nothing absurd going on? Maybe you cross eyes with someone else as weirded out as you are, or someone beside you might comment quietly to you about it, but no one adresses the problem loudly nor acts on it? No one does anything about it because
no one else is doing anything about it? It's kinda like that, but for everything. The economy is in the toilet, Bozo says things which would in the past be the butt of jokes for weeks, there's a god damn genocide going on, impreachment-worthy shit is routine, but no one acts on any it. It's an issue for the people in a faraway place called Politics to tackle, it's their job, that's what they're elected to do. And a sane hyperreality is beginning to finally take hold again precisely because the inhabitants of Politics have been adressing them clearly in a funny ritual called a Senate enquiry, and it turns out all the out-of-place things we have all witnessed and ignored are very, very bad things indeed.
The most direct cause to me seems to be a genuine mass event of operant conditioning by our establishment, to bark on command at anything related to "peetee", which was overenforced to the point that there's no barking at all if there's no command. At the same time, this "political autism" seems to be the natural, yet possibly avoidable, convergence of several morbid symptoms of contemporary capitalism, and the brainwashing happened to quicken a process which might be happening over the entire globe. These many morbid symptoms are what makes this memeplex of mine difficult to transmit in words because they're all intricately related, but mybe if I blurt them all out someone might be able to glimpse the entire thing: depolitization of politics, hypernormalization, TINA, alienation, Spectacle, attention economy, simulacra, ubiquituous infosphere, celebrity culture, end of history, infocalypse. (I might be forgetting some, but notice how these are immaterial, informational/cultural issues; besides them, of course, there are material, empirically proven problems like the FRoP). Everyone on this site probably knows these concepts individually, tho once you consider them all at the same time, you hopefully start seeing how well this list describe this strange early time of capitalism's decay in the West. I thought Trump's election was the apex of this malignant convergence of symptoms, and it's certainly the one which will go down in history as its starting mark, but we managed to outdo it in terms of sheer retardation because the CW brainwashing put some of these malignant trends on turbo mode. All of these symptoms are present almost everywhere today to wildly varying degrees – the antimask/antivax insanity which took place even in developed Western countries demonstrates this well – but Brazil holds the record for highest degrees. America ended their omninormalization once the Boomer Hall Putsch provided a strong enough reality shock once media processed it and gave way to the Eternal Brunch, but we are still dealing with it. Maybe this can be avoided by other countries, maybe it will become more common as capitalism circles the drain.
Lastly, a key observation of mine is that this therapy consists of abnormalizing reactionarism. America abnormalized relatively little reactionarism, but nonetheless, the way out of this malaise is to curb the chimpout that reactoids have been committing freely lately, which relates to my pretentious theory of reactionarism as pathology, atavist personality disorder, and that the management (and, hopefully, treatment) of these people has to be an explicit goal of society. As far as my analysis goes, society has advanced to the point where it's downright incompatible with reactionarism, and thus, the latter's practice requires/entails/is not just civilizational stagnation but civilizational decline (not that it couldn't be decline before, see fascism for the ultimate example) and bourgeois liberalism can no longer contain them, so now more than ever, it's either socialism or barbarism. Hopefully we here will manage to turn this abnormalization physical with show trials and, dare I say, beach gulags
