I figured maybe the guy was born in that region and googled for his birthplace, but didn't manage to find anything. He is, however, a "fervorous Catholic" since 2017, after recovering from cancer, which he attributed to a miracle. Until then a leftist (presumably of the ciranda flavor, as I can't find much information about him) and a firm atheist -- I sense a pattern here -- his religious turn was followed by appreciation for my friend and yours, OLAVOOOOO. At least he didn't go full basic-bitch convert by become another fairweather evangelic. I guess this explains that cross.
He headed one Club Noir, a renowned theater company, since 2006, which however closed its doors last June. The artist attributed it to, of course, political persecution by his fellow artists who had, up until recently, respected him abloo bloo bloo. But he didn't have any problems finding a job, as he was appointed head of Funarte the same fucking month. Cue the 0
. Notice, again, how the bastards normalized all the "old politics" simply by doing it shamelessly, and will never face repercussions. At any rate, he immediately called on his fellow reactionary artists to create a "cultural war machine". In September, Veja revealed he tried to hire his wife's company for a sweet $3,5m government contract, for which he's now under investigation (and let me point out that an investigation surrounding such a glaring offense is the sort of systemic flaw of bougie democracy which we ought to correct). Other sections of the office managed to block the deal, which reinforces the importance of a mix of appointed and professional staff positions in public organs. Later on, Fernanda Montenegro posed as a witch about to be burned for a cultural magazine, which TRIGGERED him to no end. He whined all the self-victimization that rightwingers rattle off like reading from a script, she offended me and millions of Brazilians, this was a serious aggression against Brazil and the federal government blah blah blah. In november, his mamata was upgraded to the position he just lost. He got to appoint his successor, a similar cretin who made cretinous statements about satanism in rock music. This isn't a joke, by the way. He also made the soon-to-be-blocked nomination of professional house nigger and tranny admirer Sérgio Nascimento (>>142581
), which is more or less another mamata. In December, the cap for Rouanet projects was raised from 1m to 10m (incidentally, the limit to 1m would have killed, among other things, the São Paulo Bienal, MASP, MAM, the official symphonic orchestras of both the couontry and the São Paulo state), but even when going back on their own crimes, this bunch manages to fuck up in the form of badly written regulation. And here we are now, with the Goebbels shtick.
The one good thing which can be attributed to him was firing someone appointed before his time at the culture secretary once he discovered she was a failed candidate at the previous elections and was in hot water because her campaign expense declarations were rejected. Or so he claims. She says she was fired for disagreeing with him. I checked her party, and it's PSD, an opposition party implying the government has a single fucking party in their base by now
He provides an interesting case study for my thepry of the reactionary pathology. He looks like a textbook case, yet has only recently been so after literally converting. I have to look into his past and see if he displayed the reactionary flavor of anti-social behavior before then.
