(LifeSiteNews) – In what many are saying is a repeat of what Justin Trudeau did to the Canadian truckers’ Freedom Convoy, protesters in Brazil who believe last month’s presidential election was stolen from incumbent Jair Bolsonaro are reportedly having their bank accounts frozen.
This development has occurred just days after the country’s top elections official banned conservative influencers from social media for contesting the results.
Brazil’s Supreme Court is seizing funds from protesters who won’t accept Bolsonaro’s defeat. Biden no doubt taking notes. https://t.co/HYFXsD7Y53

Bolsonaro, a populist nationalist leader who had a close relationship with former U.S. President Donald Trump, lost his re-election bid to socialist Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva on October 30 by a 49.1 to 50.9% margin. He initially refused to concede the race — a sign his supporters believed indicated a willingness to contest the results — but he has since been cooperating with the transition of power.
Following Bolsonaro’s loss, thousands of truck drivers parked their vehicles on hundreds of highways across the country. Rallies featuring tens of thousands of people have also been held in recent weeks, with protesters claiming the election was “stolen” the same way the 2020 US presidential race was.
Popular Brazilian journalist Bernado Küster spoke to LifeSite co-founder John-Henry Westen about the results.
Alexandre de Moraes, a Supreme Court justice who also serves as the country’s elections chief, is the man responsible for the crackdown on the doubters.
“Those who by criminal means have been taking part in anti-democratic acts, will be treated like criminals,” Moraes said, after suspending key Bolsonaro supporters from expressing their views online.
A large childcare chain in the United States just fired a faithful Christian caretaker for refusing to read LGBT propaganda to children.
As reported on LifeSiteNews, Bright Horizons Children’s Center in California terminated the contract of Nelli Parisenkova for not reading LGBT-themed books to children as young as 1 year-old.
Parisenkova, a devout Christian who worked for the company for four years, requested to not read the books because they violated her deeply held religious beliefs.
Instead of tolerating Nelli’s Christian faith, Bright Horizons demanded she 'celebrate diversity' or leave. After refusing to comply with this unjust ultimatum, Parisenkova’s boss expelled her from the building, which forced her to walk 20 minutes in 96-degree heat to the bus stop where she had to wait another 45 minutes.
Parisenkova is now suing Bright Horizons Children’s Center for violating her religious freedom, and she needs your help to raise public awareness about this assault on her human rights.
Sign this petition today to tell Nelli Parisenkova that you stand with her and her Christian faith against the LGBT agenda being pushed by Bright Horizon’s Children’s Center.
Bright Horizons thinks it can bully devout Christians like Nelli into submitting to their leftist ideology. Do not let them get away with it! We all must take a stand to ensure these attacks on our shared Christian faith come to an end. Here are the plain and simple facts:
- No child should be brainwashed to believe that marriage is between two men or two women.
- No child should be told that boys can become girls, or that girls can become boys.
- No child should be indoctrinated with the erroneous belief there are more than two genders, or that people can choose their gender identity.
This is not education. This is propaganda.
Nelli Parisenkova was RIGHT to protect children from LGBT indoctrination and she was RIGHT to invoke her Christian faith in doing so.
SIGN THIS PETITION NOW to tell her she is not alone in this fight!
In recent days, Moraes — who launched multiple investigations into Bolsonaro during his time in office — has ramped up his attacks on the peaceful protesters. Several outlets are reporting that he has blocked the bank accounts of more than 40 people and companies associated with the protests.
Moraes told an audience in New York this week that “democracy in Brazil was attacked, but it survived.” He added that the trend of casting doubt on elections “began in the United States, with the far-right, and spread to Eastern Europe and then to Brazil.”
Bolsonaro’s son Eduardo, an elected official in Brazil, is believed to have been at Mar-a-Lago recently. A photograph that supposedly shows him seated with former president Donald Trump, Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, and former Trump Small Business secretary Linda McMahon was shared on Twitter this week. Lake — like Trump — has aggressively asserted that her race was fraught with election tampering.
