NYT Editors Support Brazil’s Coup d’Etat Regime
by Stephen Lendman
The Times is an enemy of peace, equity, justice, rule of law principles and democratic values – an instrument of state propaganda, exclusively serving wealth, power and privilege.
US and Brazilian dark forces conspired to oust democratically elected President Dilma Rousseff – tyranny triumphing over fundamental freedoms, Latin America’s largest country now run by a criminal cabal similar to fascist duopoly power in America.
State Department spokesman admiral John Kirby expressed support for coup plotters now in charge, shamelessly calling fascist-run America and Brazil the hemisphere’s “two largest democracies…”
Times editors said Rousseff was ousted “amid political upheaval and allegations of wrongdoing” – failing to explain “upheaval” was internally and externally generated, wrongdoing allegations fabricated as justification for replacing democracy with illegitimate coup d’etat rule.
Times editors lied, claiming her “downfall” is “more complex than she acknowledges.” There’s nothing complex about an old-fashioned coup except for deciding on how to execute it.
In Brazil, it was as simple as corrupt fascist senators usurping power, voting to impeach her by a four-to-one margin.
Instead of denouncing coup d’etat lawlessness, Times editors said “(t)here are concrete steps the government can take to start restoring Brazilians’ faith in their scandal-ridden political elite.”
One way alone can do it. Rousseff appealed to Brazil’s Supreme Court to annul the parliamentary coup against her, arguing it was unconstitutional.
Budgetary policies aren’t impeachable offenses. Nor was she granted due process rights during farcical Senate trial proceedings.
It’s highly unlikely Court justices will undo Senate action against her. US-supported tyranny has a firm grip on power – shamelessly supported by NYT editors.
