Kátia Abreu: Brazil's Version of Sarah Palin

Even worse, actually.  If Sarah Palin fucked Monsanto (corporations are people, after all), their hideous love child would be Kátia Abreu. She's a former senator and currently the head of Brazil's all-powerful agricultural lobby.  And she's determined to be Brazil's president someday.  If that ever happens, God help the planet.

When Kátia Abreu was a senator, she played a huge role in weakening laws that protected the environment and the rights of indigenous peoples.  More logging, more roads blazing through the rain forest, more genetically modified seeds for increased crop production – thank you Kátia Abreu.

About her intention of becoming president, Kátia Abreu says:

“Running for president is not a plan – it is fate. I’m getting ready for that, preparing in case it is my destiny.  Criticism from radical environmentalists is the best form of endorsement. It gives me satisfaction. It shows I am on the right track and playing the right role.”

Like so many American rightwing demagogues, Kátia Abreu incorporates flag-waving nationalism into her political message.  (How do you say “Why do you hate Brazil?” in Portuguese?)  Also – like her Far Right counterparts in the U.S. – she wages personal attacks against everyone who disagrees with her.  Environmentalists, indigenous groups and landless peasants are all “working for foreign interests.”

[sigh]

When Kátia Abreu runs for higher office, let's hope Brazilian voters are smarter than their American counterparts.

Running for president is... fate? She sounds like their version of Ted Cruz.

jadedj: LOL. You betcha!

Snave: Maybe the Dominionists or some other Christian cult group has a foothold in Brazil. I always tend to think the U.S. is the only industrialized country that's in the clutches of a crazed Jesus cult; but maybe not.

Palin only get's a far as she has because of her looks. If this woman resembles any of those half-naked foxes I see in Brazil riding the Carnival Floats, Not only is Brazil in trouble but she'll have our right wing sucking her toes as well.

Erik: LOL. I don't know what she looks like or how old she is. If she's young and purdy, I hope Brazil's male voters are less shallow than the American teatard.
