President Jair Bolsonaro today (Jan. 17) announced the ouster of Special Secretary for Culture Roberto Alvim from his post. "An unfortunate pronouncement, even though he apologized, rendered his staying in the position unbearable," the note from the president's press office reads.

In the early hours of Friday, Alvim posted a video in which he talks about the launch of the National Arts Award and the artistic ideals upheld by his secretariat. The footage includes excerpts reminiscent of an address by Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels. A background music, the secretary chose an opera by Wagner, the favorite composer of Nazi leader Adolph Hitler.
