Kay, lets try it.
1- I wasn't aware and severely doubted it, so I googled "PIB per capita nordeste" - what I found was this bnb.gov.br/documents/1342439/2839021/001..
- from Banco do Nordeste's .gov address. Give me your thoughts on it.
2 - For one, I think it's very wrong to accuse people to be "self-inflicting wounds" to make bolsonaro supporters look like nazis without any proof - I understand not all bolsonaro supporters are like that, but I think it's a serious issue that the less ignorant part of his voters doubt the veracity of that stuff. Even if you doubt the cases that seem surreal (like the girl who got a swastika carved into her skin) there have been other cases like the capoeira master who got stabbed 12 times after saying he voted for the PT (and killed) ( extra.globo.com/casos-de-policia/mestre-..
). or the MST guy who got almost beaten to death by Imperio Alviverde members screaming "aqui é bolsonaro" ( paranaportal.uol.com.br/cidades/estudant..
I've a gay friend in são paulo who said three of his friends had already been attacked on the street, and Grindr (the gay tinder app) recently issued a warning for people to mind possible fake accounts being created to ambush people ( observatoriog.bol.uol.com.br/noticias/20..
3 - Yes. I don't think the PT is a decenty party, but Haddad so far has given zero reason for me to doubt him. His government in São Paulo has been treated very unfairly, in my opinion. If you depend on public transport you'll notice he modernized several of the most important bus lines, adding more, newer buses with wi-fi, conditioned air and slots to charge cell phones, added bus lanes on the Marginais and almost 400km of bike paths (even if they're not perfect, people who actually use bikes don't complain about them). What people just don't understand is that São Paulo has got WAY too many cars and the transit issue just CANNOT be fixed by adding more roads, there's no room for it. It requires that people start using the public transportation methods, since cars can't fly just yet (also worth noting, the metro stations and new lines that have taken years to finish building belong to the state government. They only ever finish building when it's election year.) He also added wi-fi to a lot of public places, which pissed off some phone companies that were happy that people were gonna use a lot of 4G.
Here's some of the stuff he did as mayor of SP: spressosp.com.br/2014/08/06/nao-sabe-o-q..
He didn't deliver on everything that he promised numbers wise, but take note that it was during the worst recession in the city's recent times
And here's none other than João Dória saying Haddad is a honest man:
Also note that, among some of the reasons why he never got reelected - Dilma was being impeached at 2016. A million people dressed in yellow, saying it wasn't their fault because they voted in Aécio, were at the Paulista avenue blaming all of the country's problems in the PT, sponsored by the FIES. It's obvious a PT mayor would never get reelected, and Dória made sure to bet all his chips on that during his campaign (aceleraSP, etc). Now he just abandoned the mayor role to run for governor lol
4 - I don't think he's a nazi per se. When I use those two words to relate to bolsonaro or his supporters, I'm referring to the behaviour that's associated with those groups. There's a LOT of stuff that he said that can be considered authoritarian and people are starting to treat him like he's a fucking messiah. I don't remember lula or Dilma supporters spamming emojis and shit saying "it's the Mito time hahaha cry you direitopatas #L13 #D13" or putting their pictures as profile pics on facebook. People are starting to adore his image, and that is scary because it means they won't listen.
Most importantly though, it's what I already wrote on 2. Ever watched movies like Die Welle or Fight Club? It's that same mob behaviour that has people become like animals, and forget to listen to reason because for them, there's only one thing that matters. And they're going after minorities. A game came out on steam this week called "Bolsomito 2k18" where you play as Bolsonaro and, among other things, kill gays ,blacks and left-wing politicians
If all this isn't the start of something serious to you, I don't know what else do you need.
5 - I don't agree with some of it, but I tried to explain it in this other HLTV post
I like that he's taxing banks to decrease the interest rate - the PT had been going with some neoliberal policies for some time already and this is something that a government who wants to decrease social inequality should be doing. The debt of brazil, right now is 50% interest rate for banks, 30% previdencia social and only 20% goes to health, security, education etc, and that's the reason why so many people were protesting against the PEC 95 - It freezes investment for 20 years, fucking the majority of the national populace over whilst bankers keep their money intact whilst hoping their ridiculously high interest rates will eventually fix our economy.
Now they've also recently adopted the Ciro Gomes SPC strategy (that they called Dívida Zero) - Helping 63kk people renegotiating their debts so they can eventually recover our economy by allowing people to spend money, and get money flowing so that john maynard keynes can rest easy on his grave
