(TotalConservative.com) – Lula da Silva was sworn in as president of Brazil on New Years’ Day. The far-leftist is a notorious communist in the Workers Party. Promising to “guarantee the rule of law” while claiming his administration did not harbor resentment toward the previous administration of Jair Bolsonaro, Silva said they don’t want revenge against “those who tried to subjugate the nation to their personal and ideological designs.”

A bit of confession-by-projection on his part?

The contest was extremely close with da Silva claiming 50.83% of the vote, while Jair Bolsonaro had 49.17%. A runoff followed which da Silva won, and Brazil’s Superior Electoral Court ratified his victory.

The leftist Supreme Court in Brazil had banned guns in the country’s capital and suspended legitimate gun licenses. Gun grabs are always very popular with totalitarian regimes, now and in the past. Famously Adolf Hitler spoke out about the need to confiscate arms, as did communist leaders like Mao Tse Tung and Pol Pot.

Bolsonaro challenged the results of the runoff election, citing “signs of irreparable… malfunction” in some of the voting machines. This trend of extremely close margins and electronic shenanigans was observed just as recently as this last election cycle in the US; notably in Arizona where Kari Lake lost her gubernatorial bid to Katie Hobbs.

No stranger to controversy, Lula da Silva was convicted in 2017 of money laundering which was overturned in March of 2021. Was either event politically motivated?

Considering the obsession with power and authority most communists display, one has to wonder. Rule of law is not their forte. South America is also much more radicalized when it comes to far-leftist ideology. Hammer and sickle flags are proudly displayed across the continent, and political commentator Jack Posobiec witnessed raucous celebrations of his win in Mexico City.

Not everyone is thrilled he won, Bolsonaro supporters are holding regular protests and claiming da Silva is corrupt. How will Brazil fair under his leadership? Time will tell.
