Brazil court bars Bolsonaro from running for office for eight years. Aren’t they a democracy ? Lady liberty is dead there
Brazil's highest elections court voted Friday to ban former President Jair Bolsonaro from running for office for eight years for undermining the country's democracy by making false claims about its voting system.

Why it matters: The ruling, if upheld after an expected appeal to the Supreme Court, will prevent Bolsonaro from running in the next presidential election, scheduled for 2026.

The populist former president will also be banned from seeking any lower office.
Zoom in: The ruling is based on Bolsonaro's baseless claims in the lead-up to last October's election — which he narrowly lost in a run-off — that Brazil's electronic voting system could be rigged against him.

After the election, Bolsonaro's supporters stormed the presidential palace and other government buildings. An investigation into alleged incitement of the rioters by Bolsonaro is ongoing.

Bolsonaro has denied any responsibility for the riot and accused the courts of political persecution.

“For the love of God, what kind of democracy is this? Why can’t I criticize the voting system?" he said in a recent radio interview, per WSJ.

They don't really care whether the truth gets out, because the public no longer knows what's meant by "the truth."

Well, I mean, no one can tell the difference anymore between what's real and what's fake.

Anyway, the point is, I can tell you all of this, right out in the open, because it doesn't matter who knows about it. They won't know whether to believe it or not.-
