After his first-round victory, Jair Bolsonaro has attempted to quell fears that Brazil could return to a dictatorship under his command
Here are some of his most worrying quotes and you can make your own mind up…
“I’m not going to rape you, because you’re very ugly” – to a female representative in Congress.
“They don’t do anything. I don’t think they’re even good for procreation any more” – referring to quilombolas, the black descendants of rebel African slaves.
“I’d rather have my son die in a car accident than have him show up dating some guy.”
“I’m pro-torture, and the people are too.”
“You won’t change anything in this country through voting – nothing, absolutely nothing. Unfortunately, you’ll only change things by having a civil war and doing the work the military regime didn’t do. Killing 30,000, starting with FHC [former president Fernando Henrique Cardoso]. Killing. If a few innocent people die, that’s alright.”
“You can be sure that if I get there [the presidency], there’ll be no money for NGOs. If it’s up to me, every citizen will have a gun at home. Not one centimetre will be demarcated for indigenous reserves or quilombolas.”
“I had four sons, but then I had a moment of weakness, and the fifth was a girl.”
