So, for at least four years, I’ve watched you pretend to be significant enough for your government to care about what you are doing. Care enough to deport you, arrest you or have you killed.
But here you are.
You just aren’t worth Brazil’s time.
You aren’t half as significant as you keep claiming.
One day I’ll read your obituary. Old man died of old age.
The day before that, you’ll still be telling us your life and freedom is in danger.
Yeah, Bill. That would all be very nice if you could just point out where I said I was significant enough that Bozo’s government would go out of their way to target me.
What I was afraid of — and still am afraid of — are the collateral effects of a government that is putting militias in power in the streets, wants to arm its supporters, and let them kill whomever they like. That’s how shit rolls these days in countries like the Philippines, Venezuela, and Brazil and not your sweaty 1970s style fantasies of “death squads”.
During the last year of Bozo’s rule, I’ve already been physically attacked and hospitalized by a Bozo loon (luckily unarmed) and threatened by another after being presumed an eye witness to the murder of two boys in front of my office.
As I have said many times, I am much more afraid for my wife, who hangs out quite a bit with people who are actually on Bozo’s kill list, like the murdered Marielle Franco and her colleague, Indianara Siqueira. Although she’s also not liable to be directly targeted by Bozo’s goons, she stands next to a lot of people who are.
Feel free to keep on lying about me as much as you like, however. I will keep on repeating what I have actually said and still say. I believe that when someone mocks people who are in this sort of situation, like you insist upon doing, or saying inane and clueless shit like “why don’t you just move?” it will all come back on them or the ones they love, some day, somewhere. When it does, you make sure and think of me, ‘tá?
Tenho santo forte.
But thank you for wishing me to die of old age. I quite hope that is correct, although I rather doubt you will be around to read my obituary, regardless, even if you could read Portuguese.
