Nelson Piquet was infamously again within the information final week after showing in a video recorded throughout a coup demonstration by supporters of Jair Bolsonaro protesting the election outcome. In the video, the previous pilot twice calls Lula a “son of a bitch” and says he desires to see him “within the cemetery”.

As quickly because it began to unfold on the networks, the video induced not solely condemnation, but additionally demonstrations by jurists, attorneys and even the Public Ministry. Perhaps the previous pilot should reply for incitement to violence or one thing related, as a result of his need to see Lula lifeless has been so express.

Piquet has became ectoplasm, each time a miserable image emerges. Not for overt help for the present president – the individuals, in fact, have a proper to an advocate of torture, a denier of science, accountable for lots of of 1000’s of deaths within the pandemic, a grotesque copycat of people who find themselves suffocating for air, a prison. The one who assaults STF ministers and doesn’t acknowledge the results of the elections, who incites his followers to shoot down democracy, calls for navy intervention, the chief who leads his Federal Highway Police to forestall the North-Easterners from voting, whom he calls “.illiterate” and the police. they suffocate in a van, a citizen who has not hidden his hatred of homosexuals, his contempt for blacks and indigenous individuals, his aggression in direction of girls, the man who assaults the press, artists, intellectuals. liberal in economics, however he spent his complete life siphoning public cash, a buddy of Rio de Janeiro’s militias, an admirer of freaks like Donald Trump, a defender of landowners, g unlawful farmers, foresters, destroyers of nature, and so forth.

Well, in fact individuals have the correct to establish with somebody like that, what’s the issue? If they’re the identical, they assume the identical, what have they got?

And what if, within the case of the ex-pilot in query, this rapprochement with the present president bought him a authorities contract along with his truck monitoring firm, and the steadiness for the president was a stable donation of R$501 thousand. your election marketing campaign?

Wow, you are mixing every part up! Jungle! Steel!

Piquet stated a number of months in the past that he would depart Brazil if Lula gained the election. In this sense, the assertion of the entrepreneur is now anticipated, which mustn’t occur. Lately, when he opens his mouth, Piquet has been extra stunned by the content material than by the false guarantees he could make. This is what occurred, just lately, in the course of the revelation of an interview with an obscure YouTube channel, during which he calls Lewis Hamilton “black” twice.

The “neguinho” who will obtain the title of honorary citizen of Brazil this Monday within the Chamber of Deputies. And quickly after, on the British embassy in Brasilia, he’ll meet with activists from social actions and people related to the struggle towards racism within the nation. In truth, concerning the award of honor, Piquet’s son, nicknamed Nelsinho, expressed himself in a latest submit on Instagram: “Has he ever come to Brazil with out being for a race or with out being employed to provide a speech?? That he met the Amazon. He defends it a lot? He has time, even the airplane, why did not he come?”, requested the boy who rides within the Stock Car right now.

The air is more energizing in Brazil since final Sunday, besides for some barracks and navy installations, in entrance of which individuals wearing inexperienced and yellow are praying, screaming, praying for some recruits to be saved from communism, unisex. bogs, from child bottles, penises and evangelical temples and church buildings to grow to be instant swing homes.

In this situation, it would be attention-grabbing if Hamilton, the “black man” who has gained seven world titles and owns the data of victories and poles within the historical past of F1, amongst many others, met Lula. They would have an attention-grabbing dialog about points that curiosity each of them and that have been on their agendas for a very long time: prejudice, racism, inequality, the atmosphere, social inclusion.

Yes, Lula and Hamilton would have lots to speak about. The employee who was hungry since childhood, who led the employees within the 70s, was arrested twice, was elected president 3 times and within the final election overturned the draft of fascism that threatened Brazil, will undoubtedly fascinate the younger black man who suffered along with his profession. everlasting discrimination who dared to insert himself in a white and elitist atmosphere since childhood, populated by prejudiced logic of sports activities and conservative and backward individuals, raised his fist and voice and knelt towards injustices a number of years in the past. For the lifetime of a black man like him, the grid of a racetrack was killed, and he turned a very powerful voice in world sport in protection of significant and pressing causes.

Lula and Hamilton, in the event that they met in individual, would assist to relegate figures like Piquet and Bolsonaro to the dustbin of historical past. And they would ship a really clear message to the entire world: in politics and on roads, there should be dignity, resilience, respect for life.

But it is simply an concept.
