And yeah, keep insulting them, instead of addressing their problems, because that worked so well in the past.

The "holier than thou" attitude needs to be gone, and you need to listen to other's ideas and problems. Your truth isn't universal, and you can't force your ideals down others' throats "just because it's the right way".
Look, I understand you hate freedom, equality, and democracy, but that doesn't mean you should encourage everyone else to vote for far right nutjobs.

The candidate Lon-ami is supporting is now calling to round up his political opponents if he wins:
"Either they go overseas, or go to jail… These red outlaws will be banished from our homeland. It will be a clean-up, the likes of which has never been seen in Brazilian history"

Right, because everyone is fat and happy in North Korea, Eritrea and Venezuela?

If you expect a Tory to have any grasp on reality you're a good ten years out of luck.

Eh the definitions of right and left are quite iffy. Depending on the time and place of the person you asking you could call just about any govt. far-right or far-left. That said without much doubt we can say Nazis were socially rightwing.

Economically, if one uses only that to define the right and left, it gets a bit more complicated. I am not an expert but I've read that economically Nazis were rather centrist (for the time) and Keynesians, in fact very similar to FDR's America so they were as leftwing as the US at worst.
In a modern political context of the US this would make them quite leftwing, Bernie Sanders leftwing. In Europe this would make them somewhere from center-right to moderate left depending on who you asked. Again this is just talking economics and leaving their opinions on social norms out of it.

Not sure if I'm understanding much of this from google translate.

Are Brazilian officials going around and seizing literature encouraging democracy and trying to keep Brazil from falling into the depths of fascism?

The policials are charging into universities investigating professors, confiscating their external HDDs, shutting down anti-fascist meetings and thats overall creating a climate of censorship and dictatorship.

Meanwhile, Jair Bolsonaro's son committed a crime the other day by saying that the supreme court should be shut down through guns and brute force and nothing has happened to him beyond the court saying "Yes it's a crime".
