Brazil has had coups before. Several at least if memory serves.
Brazil’s attempted coup was thwarted by Lula’s decisive action, minister says
Alexandre Padilha says insurrection by Bolsonaro supporters was well-organized ‘act of terrorism’ aimed at toppling government
Have any of those coups – successful or not – been done by proles in soccer shirts shouting at Parliament? Or have they been rather more serious than that, the Army falling out the tanks and all that?
So, given that they do know what a coup looks like, how to have one, was this one?
