Brazilian Representative Jean Wyllys, from the Socialism and Liberty Party (PSOL), denounced the distribution of extremist literature in the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro. The version of the document posted on the website of the weekly Carta Capital rages against abortion (which the authors try to link to Nazi policies), euthanasia (compared to gas chambers), regulated sex work (blamed, among others, on Communism), drug legalization (attributed to a “World Government” plot), land reform movements and a myriad of small environmental causes. Most of the ire, however, is directed to LGBT rights movements, which are blamed on an “anti-Christ.”
The booklet bears the name of a pair of state and national representative candidates, affiliated to two recently founded parties: Solidarity (SD), linked to centrist trade unions, and the rather obscure National Ecologist Party (PEN). Both, however, are preachers, and expressed support to the presidential candidacy of the poll-leading evangelical politician Marina Silva. Rep. Wyllys, currently the only openly gay congressman, demanded from Marina Silva’s campaign an explanation of whether they approved of such literature.
