President Bolsonaro tells Brazilians to “poop every other day” to help save the environment

Um, yeah…that’s a big fat NO THANK YOU. It is NOT healthy to practice this recommendation. What a whack job this guy is.

From Daily Mail: Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro suggested Friday that people ‘poop every other day’ as a way to save the environment, after he came under fire for a surge in deforestation of the Amazon since he came to power.

The far-right leader offered this idea in response to a journalist’s question as to whether it was possible to simultaneously spur economic growth, feed the world’s hungry and also preserve the environment.

‘It’s enough to eat a little less. You talk about environmental pollution. It’s enough to poop every other day. That will be better for the whole world,’ said Bolsonaro, who earlier this month sacked the head of a government agency that had reported a major increase in Amazon deforestation.

Bolsonaro has been criticised for a rapid acceleration in deforestation of the Amazon rainforest, which which covers vast swathes of Brazil and is considered vital to combatting global warming.

According to Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research (INPE), which tracks clear-cutting of the rainforest, around 2,254 square kilometers (870 square miles) of the Amazon were cleared in July, an increase of 278 percent from a year ago.

The rapid rise in deforestation has triggered a global outcry and threatens to create problems for the recent free trade agreement between the South American trade bloc known as Mercosur. The pact includes Brazil and the European Union.

That followed a 90 percent increase in June compared to the year prior – figures that Bolsonaro has called ‘lies,’ and which prompted the sacking of INPE chief Ricardo Galvao on August 2.

The Amazon is vital to the exchange of oxygen for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere — a check on global warming.

But Environment Minister Ricardo Salles said the INPE data was published in a way that satisfied “sensationalist interpretations” and was aimed at getting “more donations from foreign NGOs”. Data from INPE, an institution of international repute, showed that overall deforestation has increased 40 percent in the last twelve months compared with the same period a year ago.

Bolsonaro, a combative politician frequently denounced for derogatory remarks about women and minority groups, said the rapid rise in populations around the world needed to be addressed.

“When you see how the world’s population is increasing by 70 million a year, you need a family planning policy,” said the former army officer, declining to use the term “birth control” for fear of an adverse media reaction.

“Don’t make me say that, otherwise (the daily) Folha de S. Paolo will run a headline saying I favor birth control,” he said.

“But you can see that more educated people have fewer children. I’m an exception to that rule, I have five,” he said.

A dangerous idea, if it catches on the demonoids will be sure to adopt it here. They’ll want to issue poop licenses, poop stamps, especially a poop tax. They will tax anything and everything

This Neanderthal is the Left’s wet dream of a knuckle-dragging “conservative”. In a public speech in April 2017, Bolsonaro said that he had five children, that the first four were male and that for the fifth he produced a daughter out of “a moment of weakness”.

“This Neanderthal is the Left’s wet dream of a knuckle-dragging “conservative”.” That’s why he was selected. A caricature

But recommend a halt to abortion, and everyone loses their minds!

I like Bolsonaro. Would you rather have a socialist running Brazil?

Left/right in politics is a false dichotomy. The only qualification for national leadership should be that the person is sane. Right about now that would be a very exclusive group

Why shouldn’t Brazil be allowed to develop thier country as they see fit? Who are we to tell them they can’t grow ag products on a grand scale like other countries and participate in a global market? Teddy Roosevelt saw the agriculture potential when he trekked “Through the Brazilian Wilderness” and wrote a book about it. This whole idea we have to keep an autonomous country from developing thier infrastructure to save us all is ridiculous nonsense. All the proud citizens of brasil want is a better life and a chance to compete on a level playing field. China has… Read more »

Where is video of President Bolsonaro saying to poop every other day? He is restoring gun rights for Brazilian citizens and can’t be that bad. He’s a conservative so he’ll be bashed at every turn.

My read of Bolsonaro’s quote is that he probably said that as a joke to mock climate-change greenies.

I don’t know much about him but if that’s the case he goes up a notch in my estimation

Only radicals will implement this idea. They are already crazy and now they’ll be constipated too.

Terrific.
