The movie "Elite Squad" is about Rio's special ops police unit, also known as BOPE; this is their logo:

This is the trailer (not too representative of what the movie is about imo),

When it came out it was attaqed by all the usual phonies as a celebration of fascism. The people liked it though...in fact it's just an "honest" and gritty take on this very good police unit, I found it very enjoyable. Best scene is what happens to the leftoid college students. It's also about the (not distant) future of the US, pepper your angus.

It actually makes me sad to think about the overall picture here... the complaints of the middle class people, generally white or white-aspiring, are very familiar. They don't like corrupt politicians and big bidness and what the alliance between these has created in terms of living standards, crime, etc., etc.; most are aware that the influx of (blacks and blackalikes) from the interior came during the rule of a governor in the 1980's-90's who wanted to get cheap votes, and that these people were brought in for cheap labor; in other words, the usual alliance. At that time the police wasn't even allowed to be armed, which caused crime to skyrocket; the older people have fond memories of the military dictatorship. The young are reliably leftist and don't, but their complaints and the complaints of middle and upper middle class people would sound very familiar to those concerned about these trends in the US and Europe. It's a bit sad because in these movies they have the fantasy of a police unit that has the interests of the people in mind and chastises both the criminals and the powerful who let them loose. But the demographic situation, the economy, the political system, etc., is such that this is too little too late, so it's quite sad to see. Think about people on Sailer's blog making the same complaints they do, but long after the society they fear is coming has already been established. Despite Brazil's recent prosperity, the middle classes have quite bad long-term prospects, and so does the country.

Strangely enough I've seen more white people in Rio this time around. I'm not sure if that's because they're moving here from the south or if there were programs that increased the white birthrate at the expense of blacks (there's some evidence the Brazilian govt. was doing this not too long ago, and also sterilizing blacks). Nevertheless, I don't see how Brazil can improve in the long term, and it's bad nuwz for the white world in general; the exploits in these movies are like the South African mercs who protect white communities there. It's a temporary holding action. Even if the demographics should stabilize and a white-brownish relatively civilized alliance would hold, it won't be pleasant in the long term anyway.

About the only thing this country had going for it was the wise Portuguese colonial attitude, appropriate to settling on top of more numerous natives and slaves, that considered anyone but the most ebony to be "not black," and that forwarded a ridiculous but widely-believed myth that "everyone is mixed." White supremacy is maintained, but mobilization of "minorities" isn't possible. Accordingly there are many decent brown people who aspire to be white and look down on blacks, and even some blacks who are the same. Despite overt racism--people will just tell you they don't want to go to, e.g., Bahia, because "it smells like black," the anchors on TV are blue-eyed, there isn't a single black living on the most expensive streets, etc.--there is still very little racial tension, and blacks are not mobilized. Browns certainly aren't, and even the Japanese believe themselves to be Brazilian and get eye-fold correction plastic surgery.

But that's ending...feminism, anti-racism, race quotas, and the like, are being imported very fast from the US and Europe. The intellectual classes are already Marxified for some time and are status whores eager for a pat on the head from Paris and so on, so they're importing these noxious doctrines as fast as they can. If Brazil becomes feminized and racialized the consequences will become catastrophic very fast I think...they won't have the few-decades window that the US or Europe can enjoy.

Amnesty International, working hard to disarm white people and make them powerless everywhere across the world...

Yes, this is a good movie. You either maintain these elite death squads or accept the fact that some areas are not going to be under your control. I say crush crime by all means necessary.

On a side note, even Capitan Nascimento, who is the ultimate badass, gets nagged by his wife. This is more evidence that some alphas use the nagging to increase our personal power.


***Potential Spoilers***

The films were quite enjoyable, but the second ultimately lacks the courage of its convictions. The protagonist Nascimento ends up collaborating with his SJW nemesis in court proceedings to bring people to justice in lieu of the redemptive violence he had previously sought. The films showed the necessity of violence to establish order but wimp out. Still much better than the fluffy "City of God" though.

The sequel is not good...not enough action, and also the reasons you say. Also tries too hard to be "artsy"; the courtroom scene was indeed a cop-out. Having him kill all the politicians would have been absurd, but still somehow better.

I've seen both films. The first is definitely superior and a rare example of fascist film in the 21st century. The only other 21st century fascist film I can think of is Rampage though that's more about active nihilism than fascism per se. While Nasciemento teams up with his former rival, the radical college professor, in the sequel, he never explicitly rejects the right to execute scumbags without impunity. What could be interpreted as ideological wavering in the sequel due to his turn to the courts as a means of eliminating political corruption is really the about the limitations of a police unit, even an elite, militarized semi-autonomous death squad like BOPE, as an end in and of itself.

The police are always the attack dogs of the state and as such the state decides how long or short a leash they can operate on. When it comes to public order they can have a positive effect if they are given a longer leash and allowed to eliminate the criminal element without recourse from the usual suspects. Of course the state is dependent on democratic whims and can decide to shorten the leash to appease vocal segments of the public . This is what happened to an extent with the Rampart scandal. Those police officers who attempt to gain more power than the state allows, almost always for financial gain, end up compromising the part of their mission where they are expected to uphold public order. This is shown in Elite Squad 1 and 2 and again is seen in the Rampart scandal. The idea that a police unit like BOPE would break free of the state for the sake of law and order is absurd because they have no means to operate politically nor would they have the arms to take on the state.
