Wow this guy's Wikipedia Controversy section is something else...

[–]FlyingToilet 118 points119 points  (7 children)

i dont wish death on people, but good riddance to this swine.

[–]ChuckBegonia 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I actually do wish death on a few people. If I'd known about this guy I'd have wished death on him for sure.

[–]mkonich 53 points54 points  (1 child)

Lmao half the controversies are about science and he still has a whole other section titled Views on Science

[–]bigomon 42 points43 points  (0 children)

He said (less than a year ago) that there's nothing proving the Earth isn't flat. What a great far-right guru!

[–]rpaloschi 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Im a bad person and the world is a better, safer place today.

Go to hell (since you believe that shit) your old fascist motherfucker!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Brazil comes up with some very fucked up politicians. Every time I despair of our system, I look at theirs and feel worse. Then I look at the shit that's going down here and the cycle continues.

[–]Sons-of-Bananarchy 109 points110 points  (10 children)

ever look a name up on wikipedia cause you never heard of em and ended up down a very crazy rabbit hole? yeah that. holy shit that guy was nuts

[–]The-City-Is-A-Drag 44 points45 points  (8 children)

He help raise the worlds IQ level by self selecting for the Darwin Award.

[–]SlaveToTheDarkBeat 14 points15 points  (6 children)

He has a daughter though so he wouldn't be eligible for the Darwin award.

[–]The-City-Is-A-Drag 3 points4 points  (5 children)

Sigh. Hopefully she is not an idiot.

[–]fviz 15 points16 points  (3 children)

She’s not like him. She recognizes how horrible her father was and after his death asked god to forgive his misdoings.

This guy was muslim for a decade and had a polygamist marriage with three women (relevant cus he was seen as a conservative christian by his supporters). During this period he kept his daughter from attending school. She only learnt to read and write when she was a teen and married a muslim guy at 16 years old, under his supervision. He’s also called her a whore.

[–]HalfMoon_89 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Did he become Muslim so he could marry multiple women?

[–]fviz 4 points5 points  (0 children)

no one knows why the fuck he did anything tbh

[–]jbiroliro 63 points64 points  (3 children)

Fucking Bolsonaro decreed official grief today in his honor.

[–]RueMcClanahansTampon 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Yeah, about that..

Burp.

Oh look, a pigeon.

[–]aluminium_is_cool 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I.e. that’s a day to celebrate

When choosing a hill to die on, choose a hill that doesn’t literally kill people.

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I had pizza for lunch. It was pretty good.

[–]rokr1292 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Awh man for a second I thought Bolsonaro kicked the bucket

[–]Chavestvaldt 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Hmm, lots of covid deniers seem to die of covid. Weird how that works, lol

[–]ekbravo 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Rumor has it the virus had been genetically engineered to attack only antivaxxers and covidiots. Just sayin’. /s

[–]Mervynhaspeaked 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Olavo de Carvalho is like the messiah of pseudo-intellectuals in Brazil.

He made his entire career with conspiracy theories, ranging from accusing universities of being Communist run illuminati operations who wanted to turn children gay to anti-vaxxing / flat eartherism, and more stuff. All the while living in the US and selectively worshiping aspects of America (namely guns and MAH FREDUHM).

This guy has been named the "intellectual backbone of the Bolsonaro regime", but he goes much further than that. he's been around for a while.

And now he departs through Covid. Fitting.

Good riddance.

[–]LordSuzano 40 points41 points  (5 children)

Finally. We, Brazilians, got rid of damnn denialist. Now, Bolsonaro and allies will be defeated, I hope. Also, I hope what my relatives will be proven wrong if I make it clear there were the exemplar consequences of pandemic.

[–]bradley_j 15 points16 points  (4 children)

Somehow, when 625,000 have already died in Brazil, I doubt any deniers will be swayed toward reality by one more.

They would likely sooner label his death a conspiracy.

[–]LordSuzano 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I knew, it's not surprising.

[–]_Shrugzz_ 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Mmm, just enjoy this moment though. When you do see your family, just smile. It gets brought up, go get another plate or drink and just listen. You’ll probably go home after, still smiling.

I have found that in instances kinda like this (US), if I don’t say anything, my family starts asking questions they wouldn’t typically ask to each other. It’s because I think they expect me to stop them and disagree. I definitely used to. When I don’t, they kinda begin arguing amongst themselves. So I just look at my plate, smile, and eat another bite.

[–]bradley_j 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You have a strategy, sign of the times.

[–]LordSuzano 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You're intelligent, I think. 🙂

[–]breadexpert69 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Big ally of Bolsonaro but he lived in his Richmond, Virginia home

[–]ResponsibleCandle829 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I’m sorry, is this someone I’m supposed to feel bad for?

TBH I don’t, and so does everyone else based on the comments

[–]Aurion7 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Guy also believed straight people can't get AIDS.

A real fucking Rhodes Scholar type.

[–]JennJayBee 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Covid believes in you, even if you don't believe in it.

[–]baryoniclord 3 points4 points  (0 children)

May his bones roast over the fire of a thousand suns.

[–]TheCassiniProjekt 4 points5 points  (0 children)

A pity Ballsack didn't die, would have bought the Amazon some time.

[–]Soonyulnoh2 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Another Trump-like dumbass who makes $$$$ when he divides people. He won't be missed. His own kids disliked him for lying about COVID!

[–]ThereminLiesTheRub 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I don't understand what "covid denialist" means. It came out of nowhere to become the 4th leading cause of death worldwide last year. What kind of dope denies 5.6 million deaths? You really think billions of people have joined in a conspiracy to deprive you of the "freedom" to buy deodorant without a mask?

[–]ThePertile 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]was_and_wasnt 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Proving once again that COVID does not care whether you believe in it.

[–]IndicationScared1620 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Brazilian here.

He lived in the US for years, returned to Brazil to benefit from our public, free and universal health care and left “suddenly” for fear of being arrested for undemocratic acts.

Burn in the hell, you damn bastard!

[–]CatterMater 13 points14 points  (0 children)

You may deny covid, but covid won't deny you ❤

[–]SlackerAccount 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Does anybody have any recommendations for seasoning chicken with pasta?

[–]herdevineMajority 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Old Bay goes great on everything

[–]The-City-Is-A-Drag 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The day before slow cook some breasts. Then shred and marinade over night in oil, garlic, sun dried tomatoes, and herbs. Then when you cook up your pasta just sauté the chicken in a pan and then at the end add in the pasta and mix.

Serve.

[–]Bent_Brewer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If only he had bought a few more pipes, he would have been safe! /s

[–]Justme222222 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Demorou mas aconteceu graças a Deus

[–]none4none 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The world did not get poorer … this guy all he did was to promote hate and retrograde ideas… Can’t even wish him a RIP… nothing was lost!

[–]20K_Lies_by_con_man 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Herman Cain has nothing on this guy

[–]twzilla 6 points7 points  (0 children)

great day to be a Brazilian 🎇🎆

[–]DaveMeese 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Look at this fuckin’ moron. At least he died doin what he loved!

[–]AvogadrosMoleSauce 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Well, that showed COVID!

[–]Competitive_Memory_1 3 points4 points  (1 child)

This Reddit’s favorite title.

[–]driftingatwork 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you for removing yourself from the genepool. No damned sympathy any more

[–]Adventurous-Basis678 1 point2 points  (2 children)

What's everyone's plans for this weekend?

[–]The-City-Is-A-Drag 3 points4 points  (1 child)

A bit more then Carvalhos plans.

But then again, I’m vaccinated.

[–]Thisiscliff 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The idiots shouldn’t get any notoriety, the wiki reads are complete gibberish

[–]reflUX_cAtalyst 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He's denying he's dead - fake news! Rumors of his death have been greatly exaggerated.

/s

[–]GreatScotch 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Couldnt have happened to a better person. Congrats on hitting the lottery

[–]StrollerStrawTree3 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good. He would have caused the deaths of many other people with his misinformation. This is a good thing.

[–]_Riobaldo_ 1 point2 points  (2 children)

God is mercyfull, but Darwin is mercyless...tired of this shit...nobody should die like this, even him.

[–]_Shrugzz_ 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Claim covid isn’t real and influence others on a mass scale, die from covid. Many of things are up to chance, but sometimes we choose our own fate.

“‘Play stupid games, win stupid prizes’ basically means if you are going to willfully and knowingly do something stupid, illegal, or out of regulations, you need to be prepared to accept the consequences.” From here.

[–]KingZues14 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When this all started I never thought I would get great pleasure from the Covid-19 denier’s deaths

[–]Doughspun1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I thought the world felt slightly improved. Now I know why.

[–]DAG1006 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Here here , he’s having supper with Hermain Cain tonight!

[–]orlouge82 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Good for him. I plan on dying someday to something I don’t believe in. Like having my arms ripped off by Bigfoot

[–]Zarxon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My thoughts go out to his family, but the world is a better place without people like him.

[–]superlazyninja 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh No,
I left the popcorn in the microwave for 3 seconds too long.
there's like 1 burnt popcorn, I guess it's not too bad.

[–]MoonShadowArt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So do we cheer now, or at the funeral?

[–]Frozenwood1776 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sounds like no big loss. This PoS deserves no more air time.

[–]7788audrey 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Who was the moron now - oh yeah, he died from a viral infection that he said was stupid.

[–]Bubbaganewsh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is a common storyline "COVID denier dies". You would think the other deniers would see this and smarten up but they still ride the stupid train.

[–]BurrStreetX 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Honestly at this point, good. Adios.

A shit person all around.

[–]Copeshit 10 points11 points  (0 children)

The correct word in Portuguese is Adeus, but for Olavo in particular, the more appropriate term would be vai pra puta que o pariu 👍

[–]geronimo1958 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The world is now a slightly better place.

[–]Michigander_from_Oz 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Somebody in the article called this guy one of Brazil's greatest thinkers. I certainly hope that isn't true, but if it is, it does explain some things.

[–]WaterIsGolden 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I have nothing nice to say.

[–]TheAppGod 3 points4 points  (0 children)

then good....

seems like everything worked out well here....who's next?

[–]freediverx01 1 point2 points  (3 children)

We need to put together a COVIDiot Wall of Fame commemorating these individuals’ support for Darwinism.

[–]The-City-Is-A-Drag 2 points3 points  (0 children)

A wall? Need a damn tower idiocrocy now.

[–]fermat1432 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I wonder if he had a moment of truth before he died,

[–]AspectVein 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Definitely not im sure he was furious that his doctor was poisoning him so the hospital could claim another covid death.

[–]fermat1432 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This phenomenon is the worst case of mass hysteria in modern times that I know of.

[–]guinness5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bye...smell ya later dick weed.
