Well I just gave an example to you, and I live in Belo Horizonte as well. But ok dude, I truly don't want to discuss politics and you most likely know more than me as I don't follow anything.

Once again, all I'm saying is related to the post and my comment was not about politics (at least that was not my intention).

You can, however, google stuff and know a little more about the violence that come from left-wingers. There are sometimes physical violence, but the moral violence is much more visible.

Damn if someone ever said that they were in favor of Bolsonaro at my university they would get demolished, with people saying that they are stupid and many other things. Whereas the opposite did not happen.

There is clear violence in many forms from both sides, you just have to want to see.

Edit: in response to your edit, I did not compare the situations, "do not put words in my mouth". In any case, trowing bottles may seem light but there is a clear chance to kill the person. But I do agree that these things you cited are worse

You can actually google it lol Or do you truly think that only people from right views are violent?

Get out of you bubble mate

Lula himself addressed the left-wing extremists in his campaign, saying that they should be disconsidered.

I don't follow politics anymore, and my comment was not even about that, my point was that we cannot deduce things from such a small sample. That is it.

You guys are stretching things out a lot unnecessarily and I'm not understanding why.

Edit: I will give you one example and you may believe if you want: my gf lives in an area where a PT HQ was located in Belo Horizonte, when Lula won in the first turn, a guy passed in the street with the dingle of Bolsonaro and the guys at the HQ trew glass bottles at his car, cursing him.

Things like this happen A LOT, but we never hear about it.

Extremists are present everywhere and all of them are lunatics in my opinion. They can do everything

Ok, but when did I say anything about those things? I will not repeat myself as my comment is above yours, but think about the left-wing extremists, do their desires reflect those of Lula?

Not always, right?

This is my point.

Bolsonaro may want a coup, I'm not defending his good-will towards this subject, but from this arrest we cannot deduce that.

The insurrectionists do not have any power whatsoever since more than 50% of the people do not want Bolsonaro. And all of the official institutions do not want to stage a coup, therefore Bolsonaro has no power to do it.

If he attempted such thing, it would he similar to what happened in a neighbour country (I don't remeber which one) where the president simply tried to cease the congress and got arrested.

These things are simply senseless and even if Bolsonaro really wanted, he has no power to do it, just like Trump.

In any case, I just said that we cannot relate the will of a small group to the will of the president, and this applies to anyone.

I don't think we should associate the actions of a small group with the will of the president himself. He may be planning a coup, idk. But we cannot presume that he is behind the group that was arrested

Edit: nice to see how people (presumably left-wingers) react to a neutral comment, downvoting just because it is not what they want to hear lol
