At least they finally explained why Bolsonaro was their 'person of the year', and it's a reason that makes sense...
As for faking the attack, why on earth would he fake being stuck in hospital for several weeks while his allies started in-fighting? No one would choose to begin their presidency that way.
The award is all about the stated intention of fostering closer commercial and diplomatic ties between Brazil and the United States.......but since it's become politicized, and has deviated from its purpose, I think he's taken the right decision to not attend.May 04th, 2019 - 09:38 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

I think he's taken the right decision He doesn't have much choice as most of the civilised world views him as a persona non grata. Thats one little machination from Langley that wasn't successful.
You have to understand the sensitivities of New Yorkers towards those that advocate terrorism. Thus, “the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims” which NYC has experienced with 911.

Congratulations You have by your failure to address the issue have confirmed that Bolsonaro fits exactly the profile of a terrorist “the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims”
lets do the coup already. Let’s go straight to the dictatorship.”
“Elections won’t change anything in this country. Unfortunately, it will only change on the day that we break out in civil war here and do the job that the military regime didn’t do: killing 30,000. If some innocent people die, that’s fine.

The dictatorship’s mistake was to torture but not kill,” he(Bolsonaro) told a radio interviewer in 2016.

The trip might be reinstated.....to Dallas, instead of to Bill de Blasio's bleeding heart NYC..
But it's not important enough to worry about.

The trip might be reinstated.....to Dallas Of course he would be welcome in a city where JFK was assassinated. But it doesn't make him any less a terrorist accordingly, as the definition correctly shows.
The trip should be reinstated to Oklahoma's town of Muskogee...May 06th, 2019 - 08:27 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

Your logic, and conclusions, are only bs...and there's no point in trying to refute it.

And, argumentum ad hominem ? don't make me laugh....sorry, can't help it...
Talking of 'sheer entertainment'.....that is what Gollum has become, a source of 'entertainment'...not a very good one I admit, but don't worry, he has already earned recognition....as a complete idiot.

Is all this insult-exchange really about: Bolsonaro cancels the trip to New York PLUS “Person of the Year?
If so; please hold your adrenaline! This needn't even BE in the news! After all - canceled or not, a supposed Man of the Year” or not; there's NOTHING really worthwhile in it; for EITHER of the Concerned Countries! You may not want to take my word for it though.

Agree, the subject does definitely not merit all the attention....but Gollum can't help getting his knickers in a twist....his real problems start when he sees that he has lost the argument - just about always'', and a bit more ; he goes off at a tangent, brings totally irrelevant matters into the argument in the useless attempt to distract people from his bs, especially when he fails to understand what he tries to read in Portuguese, or in his 'brasilwire' bullsh*t.
But look, to be 100% fair, I nominate Gollum for the Idiot of the Year ” Award......to be presented by another idiot, Bill de Blasio, in NYC.

such a liar ”Ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat (the burden of proof lies with who declares, not who denies) it.
“An assertion is a statement offered as a conclusion without supporting evidence. since an argument is defined as a logical relationship between premise and conclusion, a simple assertion is not an argument.”
