On January 8th, in the city of Brazilia, supporters of Brazil’s ex-President Jair Bolsonaro stormed multiple government buildings. The Bolsonarista movement, as it’s known, had grown convinced that their idol’s 2022 presidential election loss was fraudulent. We explore what happened that day, the movement that spawned it, and the Brazilian new right — ascendant, extremely online, and with their own reactionary conspiracy theories. We also have a segment on how the American right is reacting to the events. Our guest is Ben Fogel, a contributing editor for Jacobin who is currently working on a phd in Brazilian anti corruption politics at NYU.
