Brazilian independent journalist Nathália Urban discusses the surge of fascist militias and Evangelical extremists in Brazil, where President Jair Bolsonaro is putting the military in power.

Max Blumenthal and Ben Norton also address his refusal to do anything to stop the Covid-19 pandemic, and how Brazil has thus become the world’s new epicenter.

“Basically the military is in power in every ministry; they are overseeing everything in Brazil right now,” Nathália says.
