BRAZILIAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
Fascist? Populist? The debate over how to describe Jair Bolsonaro
Jair Bolsonaro says he wants to liberalise a largely closed economy, so why is he being called a “populist”? Is he being “fascist” when he makes derogatory comments about blacks, Indians and gays? What about when he says political opponents should be shot or waxes nostalgic about the 1964-1985 dictatorship?
