Was Braulia Ribeiro, Former Director of Brazilian YWAM, Reduced to Mere Propagandist of a Witch and an Astrologer?

By Julio Severo

Known years ago for her role as director of the Brazilian branch of YWAM (Youth With A Mission), which was a large universe in terms of international opportunities, Braulia Ribeiro today chose a smaller universe, and there are worrying clues that this universe is far from Christianity that she claims to believe.

Clarice Lispector, Bráulia Ribeiro and Olavo de Carvalho

For example, her official Twitter account has as main message expressing her thoughts a statementby Clarice Lispector, a Brazilian writer who was considered a closet witch. Perhaps not so discreet, as she was one of the distinguished guests at the 1st World Witchcraft Congress in Bogota, Colombia, in 1974.

Lispector’s literature is marked by eroticism and even lesbianism — characteristics that witches, open or closet, have.

Her death in 1977 was involved in premonitions that she had months before. Premonition is another characteristic of witches.

How a former YWAM director puts a (open or closet) witch’s statement as a central Twitter message is a mystery to me. Lack of discernment? Dissatisfaction with the Christian universe? Apostasy?

Researching Braulia’s Twitter more, I saw her sharing ideas from other occultists and esotericists.

In a single day, November 16, 2020, she shared two statements (here and here) by Eric Voegelin.

The problem with such propaganda is that Voegelin was anti-Protestant.

According to the Cambridge University Press in its work “An Agnostic View of Voegelin’s Gnostic Calvin,” written by William R. Stevenson, Voegelin believed that “the ‘Gnosticism’ of the Modern age had its roots in the Christian experience, and that the Protestant Reformation most explicitly nourished its growth.”

Since Voegelin saw communism and Nazism as the greatest forms of Gnosticism, he was accusing Protestantism of having produced communism and Nazism.

But Stevenson makes it clear that “Voegelin’s characterizing John Calvin’s project in particular as Gnostic anti-intellectualism manifesting an obvious will to power has no sound basis in Calvin’s writings.”

Voegelin saw the Protestant Reformation as the “Great Confusion” saying that the Reformation was “probably the biggest piece of political mischief concocted by a man [Luther], short of the Communist Manifesto.”

He did not spare attacks on Luther, saying that with the Reformation “Luther destroyed the balance of human existence.” Although Luther wrote a lot and had many books published, having been the great unifier of the German language through his translation of the Bible, Voegelin did not hide his total contempt for Luther’s intelligence.

Voegelin attacked Luther for his “antiphilosophism.” That is, for him Luther was against philosophy. He mentioned “[Luther’s] almost incredible lack of wisdom.”

He also said:

“Luther did not possess the powers of intellect that enable a man to grasp the essence of a problem… he was singularly lacking in intellectual insight and imagination.”

If Braulia now likes to make propaganda of anti-Protestant men, she should have no problem in making propaganda of Fidel Castro, an anti-Christian dictator.

In general, only Brazilians mentally affected by Olavo de Carvalho see Eric Voegelin as a “philosophical” reference. Carvalho is Voegelin’s greatest promoter in Brazil. Carvalho’s adherents always promote what he promotes.

In the defense of Voegelin, Carvalho and his adherents claim that he fought Gnosticism. But Voegelin’s interpretation of Gnosticism was pure fanaticism: He saw Protestantism as the greatest producer of Gnosticism and accused that Protestantism’s anti-Gnosticism was anti-intellectualism. It is like a witch accusing Christians of witches and claiming that witchcraft is true intellectualism and accusing that any attack on witchcraft is anti-intellectualism.

Voegelin is also part of perennialism. Considering that there are connections between Carvalho and the Islamic occultist René Guénon, it is not surprising to find such connections between Voegelin and Guénon. A Voegelin website unitesthe two who, although of different styles, did not differ in their occult soul. Apparently, the same maze of confusions and contradictions that was present in Guénon was also present in Voegelin. And it is undoubtedly present in Carvalho.

Did Braulia become a discreet adherent of Carvalho just as Clarice Lispector was a “discreet” witch? I do not know. I only know that I saw her, on her Twitter account, making intense propaganda for Brasil Sem Medo — a Braziliam website that “discreetly” belongs to Carvalho, who is the director of its editorial board.

For example, on November 19, 2020, Braulia said:

“Right-wing media in Brazil cannot survive (and neither do writers) without your support!! Subscribe to @JornalBSM.”

On the same day, she made another propaganda of the astrologer’s website:

“Once again I ask, those who like my articles and the other incredible columnists of @JornalBSM, please subscribe. It costs less than a dollar a day!!”

On other days, she made a lot more of propaganda.

Faithful to its occult master, on the “About” page of Brasil Sem Medo, nothing appears on the origins and purpose of this organization, as I recorded on November 22, 2020.

When I call Carvalho an astrologer, it is not by cursing. The vast majority of people do not know that the first time he became famous in Brazil was as a professional astrologer.

In addition to Carvalho, another boss of Brasil Sem Medo is Bernardo Kuster, who years ago was an evangelical and worked in an evangelical church, but left everything to follow Carvalho’s “philosophy.” Following his master’s line, today Kuster propagandizes the book “The Inquisition — A Mercy Tribunal.”

What is the use of saying that you are a pro-life conservative if you defend the Inquisition? Defending the Inquisition is like defending abortion:

* Abortion tortures and kills.

* The inquisition tortured and killed.

Legal abortion and Inquisition are morally and immorally equal.

There is no moral difference between the abortion industry and the Inquisition machine.

There is no moral difference between defending the Inquisition and defending the communist assassin Fidel Castro.

I am sure that the ideological descendants of Kuster will make in the future propaganda, together with the book “The Inquisition — A Mercy Tribunal,” of books with titles such as “Legal Abortion — A Procedure of Mercy.”

True conservatives denounce abortion and the Inquisition.

False conservatives do not do this.

Although, compared to YWAM, Carvalho’s universe is small, its network of proselytism and occultism that uses right-wing baits is immense.

As Brasil Sem Medo uses a right-wing tone as bait, Braulia became their evangelical tone or bait to attract evangelicals. I don’t know if Braulia realized that she became bait or if she cares about it.

Olavo de Carvalho is a black hole of occultism, ideological radicalism and opportunism, only bringing into his orbit minds that he can swallow and use to glorify his own movement and ego.

He has already done this on the former Midia Sem Mascara website, which received sponsorship from large companies. But no columnist received a salary. For example, I worked at Midia Sem Mascara for more than ten years without receiving a single penny of salary.

I was not the only columnist used and explored by Carvalho. Atheist writer Heitor de Paola and Catholic writer Graça Salgueiro, who were the biggest columnists for Midia Sem Mascara, were also used and discarded.

However, it was not easy for Carvalho to deceive me at all, because when it came to the question of the Inquisition, which he defends in the same way that communists and Nazis defend their murderous machines, I confronted him and continue to confront him.

Today I understand that Carvalho’s right-wing ideology has occult roots and has parallels with Julius Evola, a adherent of Guénon who was a guru of the Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini.

Will Braulia be able to make such a confrontation or will she continue to submit to her role as bait to get evangelicals for Carvalho through Brasil Sem Medo?

Will Braulia speak against the Inquisition?

Will she talk about Carvalho’s occult connections and the proselytizing of his activism?

I highly doubt it. Propagandizing Clarice Lispector, Eric Voegelin and Carvalho himself, she will continue as bait. In fact, loving Lispector, it will be impossible for Braulia to see any occultism in Carvalho, Voegelin, Guenon and other occultists.

In 2009, I had to confront Braulia for her leftist activism against evangelicals who fight against the gay agenda. My confrontation is found in this article: “Director of YWAM in Brazil attacks Christian activism against the anti-‘homophobia’ bills and homosexual ‘marriage.’”

She was disgusted with this article. In fact, her disgust lasted so long that on April 21, 2016 she said on Twitter:

“I don’t block anyone. But Julio Severo I block with pleasure. Listening to him makes me want to become a member of the São Paulo Forum.”

She ended up entering the Carvalho Forum, which is so radical in esoteric fascism as São Paulo Forum is radical in socialism!

Perhaps in her revolt against me she is quite happy to ally herself with a man who has already produced several videos asking the Bolsonaro administration in Brazil and the Federal Police to investigate me for crime of free speech, because I exposed Carvalho’s occultism and his advocacy of the Inquisition. With Braulia, will everything become a forum against Julio Severo?

Although Carvalho says he is much persecuted, the vast majority of reports and articles about him in English accurately present him as a man with an occult history. One of the greatest books against the occult, “War For Eternity: Inside Bannon’s Far-Right Circle of Global Power Brokers,” by Benjamin R. Teitelbaum, presents the main names of Guénon’s Traditionalist School, including Steve Bannon, Julius Evola, Alexander Dugin and Carvalho, who was only mentioned, albeit rarely, because of the much propaganda Bolsonaro does for him.

Teitelbaum is an American Jewish writer and his book deals with occultism on the right in the U.S., Russia and Brazil.

Carvalho has not threatened Teitelbaum and other Americans who exposed their occult connections, but he has, in several videos, threatened me, asking the Bolsonaro government and the Federal Police to investigate me. His claim is that my exposés against him involving the Inquisition and esotericism are a threat to Brazil’s national security.

The difference between him and me is big. He says he is persecuted when the U.S. press exposes his occult connections, while for years I have been attacked by the leftist press in the United States solely because of my conservative evangelical stances against abortion and homosexual sin.

While Carvalho is “persecuted” for his occult connections, I am persecuted by the left and by Carvalho himself for my Christian connections. All criticism of the U.S. press against Carvalho is not because of Christianity, but because of occultism and extremist rightism. All criticism of the U.S. press against me is because of Christianity.

As for Braulia and her presence in Brasil Sem Medo, I suspect that her only use is, in addition to fishing evangelicals, only softening among evangelicals Carvalho’s strong anti-Protestant image. This image was produced by himself, with his insane statements against evangelicals, including his public desire for the state police machine to persecute me. If that is not fascism, in the style of Julius Evola and other adherents of Guénon, I do not know what fascism is. Using the state police machine to pursue critics is standard behavior for fascists.

Yet, if the goal is goal is to go after me, Braulia, who has hated me since 2009, sees no problem in such fascism.

In 2009, I thought that Braulia Ribeiro’s biggest problem was pro-homosexual leftism. Today I think she is changing her direction. She is now an evangelical collaborator of the occult fascism that dominates the Olavo de Carvalho movement.
