'White, blue-eyed bankers have brought world economy to its knees'(Brazil Prez to UK's Gordon Brown)
The Daily Mail (U.K.) ^ | March 27, 2009 | James Chapman

Posted on 03/26/2009 10:13:07 PM PDT by Stoat

Mr Brown watched on uneasily as his host, President Luiz Inacio Lula de Silva, launched a bizarre tirade in which he warned that next week’s G20 summit in London would be a ‘spicy’ affair.
 

President Lula said it was completely unfair that the poorest people in the world were suffering most for the mistakes of wealthy, Western financiers.

 

‘Now they have demonstrated that they don’t know anything about economics.’

President Lula, head of Brazil’s main left-wing party, said that ‘no black man or woman, no indigenous person, no poor person’ had been in any way culpable for the global banking crisis.

‘I’m not acquainted with any black banker,’ he said. ‘The part of humanity that’s responsible should pay for the crisis.’

(edit)

Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek - current holder of the EU presidency - has branded US President Barack Obama's fiscal stimulus package and financial bail-out 'the way to hell'.

Prediction: This won't be called a 'hate-filled, racist tirade' anywhere in the 'mainstream' press and will be glossed over as a 'spirited, informative exchange' with 'an important, articulate leader' and will be quickly brushed under the rug.

“White, blue-eyed bankers” have supported the 3rd world for generations, with money from white, blue-eyed Westerners.

Naturally I hope that this openly, flagrantly racist insult against ALL Western nations as well as all white people will be remembered the next time Brazil comes begging for aid and loans, but I won't be holding my breath.

"sigh"

Isn't it just like the Left to blame "white people" whenever the real culprit is Socialism?

Perhaps Luiz can talk Mugabe into overseeing Brazilian financial interests. No black bankers?! Why I was just contacted via email today by a Nigerian banker who said I qualified for funds that were being held for those who had lost money to Nigerian scammers. I kid you not.

Agreed, but upon reflection I can't really think of anything at all in the stoat cave that's "made in Brazil"....quite a testament to their proud stature in the world economy, isn't it?  LMAO

Perhaps some rubber items I suppose......

Harvard University, or Harvard Agricultural College, as in keith “Ivy League” olbermann, who actually has a diploma from Cornell Agricultural College, with a major in “broadcasting”, i.e. working at the campus radio station.

That's true...in my post #9 here I referred to it as an "openly, flagrantly racist insult against ALL Western nations as well as all white people "  but I should amend that to say "....as well as all white people and nonwhites who aren't racist.".

A fair-minded nonwhite person would be just as upset over this as non-Leftist white people are over examples of true racism against colored people....leftists being the most racist people I've ever encountered.

His response to that would most likely be the standard Leftist "Oh, any people of color in this matter are merely figureheads.  The REAL POWER is in the hands of their White Slavemasters behind the scenes"

Re G20 to be a spicy affair: I am visiting London now and will be here until Mar 31. All police leave has been cancelled. It seems tense and people are in a bad mood about the economy. RBS chief Fred Goodwin had a brick thrown through his front window at home. I expect all hell to break loose for the G20 next week.

The world’s poor are suffering not because of the misdeeds of a group of pasty-faced financiers, but because they (the poor third-worlders) simply haven’t been as smart as the successful countries. They’re poor because their countries are beset by a combination of ignorance and corruption. Lula’s screed is the same as a host of other anti-capitalist third world morons (although Brazil probably belongs in the upper second tier) who blame other countries (mostly American and European) for their own problems. “We are poor, because you are rich” is one the more common lies they spread. The fact is, if it weren’t for the “greedy” pasty-faced people (whatever their sins), the world’s poor would be a lot poorer.

The fact is also that Latin America has lagged behind substantially. Asia has been independent for just about 60 years and parts (like Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong) are already 1st world and Japan brought itself out of dire poverty after WWII to become the second largest economy, while the Asian Tigers are in second world status and the two giants China and India are racing out of poverty. In contrast, Latin America has been independent since the 1820s — nearly 200 years.

"the stoat cave"

Taurus hand guns are the only Brazilian brand name product I can think of, but you'd probably have a difficult time securing one in the U.K. Most people are aware of coffee ("they make an awful lot of coffee in Brazil") and wood. However doing a little research I've discovered Brazil does export shoes, furniture, and a number of other brand name products on the international market. The research also claims that Brazil has the biggest gdp in South America and might have the tenth largest economy in the world. So a few people in Brazil are doing something right. I'm wondering if mobs in Brazil are chanting death threats outside corporate and banker homes like they are here and in Britain.

Hmmm... what is Lula up to. ... Is he calling for Toni Morrisette to begin some type of "uprising"? A call for a white, blue-eyed Clinton to act on behalf of non-whites?

Lula Da Silva is a big mouthed incompetent whois trying todeflect blame from himself for the fact that Brazil, even with all of its wealth can't seem to make any progress except in exploding crime.

He was an intellectual nullity when they elected him and will always be so.

The Portuguese are the white rulers of Brazil. Not as white as North Europeans but they call the shots in Brazil. Lula is 100% Portuguese so is a hypocrite. Lula is a mighty whitey compared to the Indians, Blacks, mulattoes and Mestizos of Brazil and Latin America

I've been following that from here as well, and Rush mentioned the brick incident.  Please stay safe, and I'm glad that you're getting out of there when you are.  I am in Seattle, and I'm guessing that the situation in London will be considerably worse than the Leftist and anarchist rioting we had here some years back.

Gordon Brown's efforts to broker an £80 billion bailout for world trade on a trip to Brazil hit a stumbling block tonight when the country's President lashed out at 'white, blue-eyed' bankers for bringing the world economy to its knees. Mr Brown watched on uneasily as his host, President Luiz Inacio Lula de Silva...
Known as "Lula" in Brazil. Good time for Brown to produce a glock and blow the leftist bastard's head off. Gosh, do I seem a little cranky lately? Anyway, thanks Pharmboy for the ping.
