Inter-American Institute was closed because of Julio Severo, accuses Olavo de Carvalho, who asked his adherents to write against Severo


Inter-American Institute was closed because of Julio Severo, accuses Olavo de Carvalho, who asked his adherents to write against Severo

By Julio Severo
In a new video, published on June 21, 2020 (https://youtu.be/yn8ZjEkJKmI), Carvalho asks his adherents to write many articles against me, so that those articles can back legal actions. Thus, he has been inciting all kinds of attacks against me, whether through government actions, legal actions or articles or even films, if that is possible.

His main accusation in the video is that he had to shut down the Inter-American Institute (IAI) because of me, because I sent my articles to IAI members and that my articles became the center of attention at IAI, according to Carvalho’s accusation, who asked his adherents now to take all my articles to use as a basis for attacks against me. He said:
“For example, take all the reports that Julio Severo distributed to people, especially here in the United States, especially to the people at the Inter-American Institute. Every week he invented something and distributed it to all the members of the Inter-American Institute. Until a point came where I had to close the Inter-American Institute because it no longer made sense. Only this was being discussed at the Inter-American Institute. Then it lost its meaning.”
He added that the closing of the Inter-American Institute because of my articles was undoubtedly some type of action by the São Paulo Forum (For de São Paulo). He said in his accusation:
“Of course, this is the São Paulo Forum, folks.”
It’s unbelievable. He faces a single evangelical — who prays and has a prayer book published in the United States — and thinks he is facing a large army or some gigantic force.
If the members of the Inter-American Institute wanted to read my articles, they — who were educated men — knew what they wanted.
The discussions took place in an email group led by John Haskins, an apostate Calvinist who was the real founder of the institute, but who for some reason gave the foundation to Carvalho. I say apostate because today Haskins does not attend any church and thinks that all (or almost) are heretical.
After almost 10 years in the group, I asked to leave, but evidently the information I gave them — translations of Carvalho’s comments available only in Portuguese — were very useful. Americans are analytical readers. Carvalho’s habit of making himself and his supposed merits great is something that appeals to Brazilians who are not analytical readers. But Americans liked to read the information I made available.
Americans were and are free to read and interpret Carvalho’s texts. They are also free to read and interpret texts by Carvalho that I translated into English. It makes no sense to wish to take away such freedom from readers. Only cult leaders do that.
It also makes no sense to deprive American readers of everything Carvalho says against evangelicals in Portuguese. Because Carvalho never had the courage to translate these attacks, I did it.
What Americans did not know about Carvalho:
* They did not know that he uses profanity and foul and immoral language daily on his Facebook.
* They did not know that he is the greatest Brazilian advocate of the Inquisition.
* They did not know that he was a professional astrologer for many years.
* They were unaware of his past and present occult connections.
* They did not know that he has mocked and attacked evangelicals and Protestantism in general.
While members of the Inter-American Institute read my articles, I argued with Haskins. One of these discussions is recorded here: Answer to John Haskins, the Creator of the Inter-American Institute.
Haskins claimed that Carvalho has nothing anymore to do with astrology because he allegedly fought with other astrologers decades ago and proved that astrology is a fraud, although Carvalho never said it in Portuguese. The problem is that Haskins tried to defend Carvalho without understanding anything of Portuguese, the language most used by Carvalho, who also claims that he fought with occultists.
But fights and confusions, which are frequent problems among occultists, are frequent problems in Carvalho’s trajectory. Mídia Sem Máscara, his website, is closed because Carvalho fought with most of the columnists, including Heitor de Paola and Graça Salgueiro, who were the site’s main writers. He fought with the webmaster. He also fought with me on October 2013 because he wanted to force me, even cursing and slandering me, to accept the advocacy of the Inquisition that he does with much passion. As an evangelical who defends Israel and the Jews, I can never defend the Inquisition and the Holocaust.
If then a fight of Carvalho with astrologers and occultists is sufficient evidence that he has no involvement with astrology and the occult today, then is the fight he had with the biggest columnists at Mídia Sem Máscara sufficient evidence that he doesn’t have today any involvement with conservatism?
He may have fought decades ago with Fritjol Schuon and Martin Lings and other members of the Traditionalist School, an occult cult that follows Islamic occultist René Guénon, who was Carvalho’s greatest “conservative” inspiration. But today he is involved with other members of that cult, including Catholic Steve Bannon, Catholic Wolfgang Smith and Muslim Seyyed Hossein Nasr, all influenced by Guénon.
He says he is no longer a leftist, but he has never been able to get rid of leftist habits like swearing and defaming.
IAI had virtually no activity outside the Internet. And one of IAI’s main activities seemed to facilitate visa issues for Carvalho’s family members.
In his accusatory video, Carvalho said:
“Now for half a century there was no conservative media, no conservative opposition, no conservative radio station, no conservative speech, there was nothing, there was only left… If in a nation with a conservative majority you didn’t have a conservative newspaper, you didn’t have a conservative party, you didn’t have a conservative radio and you didn’t have a conservative church.”
In 1978, the old Tupi TV channel broadcast, every day, from Monday to Friday at 11 am, The 700 Club show, by Pat Robertson. This show often exposed the evils of Marxism. Even though not successful, Robertson ran for President of the United States for the Republican Party in the 1988 campaign.
Years earlier, there was the show of Rex Humbard, a conservative televangelist.
In 1979 the Jimmy Swaggart Ministries also started its TV shows in Brazil, often attacking Marxism, communism, socialism, the gay agenda, the abortion agenda, etc.
All of them were reaching the general public, as TV was by far the largest channel of contact with the population. With their TV shows, American televangelists brought information to millions of people in Brazil.
I learned to admire Ronald Reagan with the help of American televangelists, who presented all the good things he did. It was a positive propaganda showing that Reagan was Protestant and did many Protestant things.
The influence of American televangelists was so great in Brazil that in 1978, Globo TV Network’s “Fantástico” show presented a special report against Billy Graham, Pat Robertson and Rex Humbard. For its attack, “Fantástico” interviewed Rev. William Sloane Coffin, a liberal Presbyterian minister who was against televangelists. “Fantástico,” broadcast on Sundays, was the largest show on Brazilian TV.
Even if there were no single evangelical TV shows, there were evangelical publishers and magazines that were largely conservative.
To some extent, it is good that Carvalho suffers from hallucinations, caused by his own inflated ego, that he is the cause of Brazilian conservatism. Thus, he has no time to accuse evangelicals of being CIA products.
Simply ignoring the reality that evangelicals are the greatest conservative force in Brazil, Carvalho said:
“In other words, we got out of totalitarianism, you didn’t fuc*ing understand yet? And who did that? Was [Brazilian President Jair] Bolsonaro? No. It was me. I did it alone. So, folks, I’m sorry to say, but the central character of this whole story was me.”
It is natural that a person who sees himself as, and demands, the attention of the universe has a trajectory of fights. He will fight with anyone who opposes the cult of his personality.
There is very little time left for him to say that he was the first astronaut, or that the Earth is flat.
Although he and his adherents acknowledge that he alone did everything, as early as 2017 the U.S. media recognized that evangelicals were Brazil’s greatest conservative force.
But Carvalho, ignoring this force and even overlooking all the work of the CIA promoting the conservative evangelical movement in Brazil, said:
“I opened the doors for there to be a conservative movement.”
I just didn’t know that it was Carvalho who introduced The 700 Club show on Brazilian TV in 1978. I also didn’t know that he had launched Jimmy Swaggart’s show in Brazil in 1979 and guided this and other televangelists to praise Reagan. There is only one problem: In the 1970s, Carvalho was very busy teaching astrology classes. And even in the 1980s he was very busy with his involvement in occult groups.
If it was not Carvalho who launched the conservative American televangelists who forever changed Brazilian TV, then what did he do? What he did was to open the doors of Brazil to the Traditionalist School, which is mistakenly seen as a conservative movement. In fact, although it has a conservative facade, the Traditionalist School is essentially occult in the Guénon line.
Carvalho then appeals for his adherents to give priority to defending him, especially against me, writing articles against me. He said:
“You have to do it. Brazil’s future depends on it. As a central victim of the biggest smear and slander campaign ever carried out in Brazil and perhaps in the world. I have been suffering for at least 25 years. For you to have an idea of the problem, if you take only one episode of this, the Julio Severo episode, just what Julio Severo did is about 200 pages of narrative.”
Victimism is the standard tactic of communists, and Carvalho makes use of this tactic in abundance.
In his exaggerated victimism, he puts himself as the center of the attacks not only in Brazil, but even worldwide. Yet, it is not quite so. All members of the Traditionalist School are criticized, as this school is an occult cult that houses famous fascist right-wing occultists. The most criticized during history was Julius Evola, the Antonio Gramsci on the right. Then Steve Bannon. In fact, the main modern book against the Traditionalist School is “War for Eternity,” published by HarperCollins in 2020 and written by the American Jewish writer Benjamin R. Teitelbaum.
Although there are major parallels between Julius Evola and Olavo de Carvalho, Evola is followed by esoteric fascists from Europe, the U.S. and the whole world, while Carvalho is followed only by Brazilian esoteric fascists. But, in his mind, he thinks he’s much more famous now than Steve Bannon, Julius Evola and other members of the Traditionalist School.
Outside Brazil, Carvalho is largely unknown, despite the fact that he has lived as a self-exiled Brazilian immigrant in the U.S. since 2005.
That is why the educated members of the Inter-American Institute found it so interesting to read my articles, which revealed his obscure views, available only in Portuguese, that Carvalho refused to show to the American public.
I showed it to the American public.
Result: The Inter-American Institute, which only worked to inflate Carvalho’s ego and deal with immigration visa issues for his family, was closed.
The history of the Inter-American Institute is then summarized by John Haskins founding it, Olavo de Carvalho taking on its foundation and presidency and, later, closing its activity — restricted to the internet — because of a Brazilian evangelical, myself, Julio Severo, who was able to identify the dangers of the Traditionalist School.
It seems that the members of the Inter-American Institute came to understand that the function of the IAI was only to serve as a facade for Carvalho's hidden, egocentric and occult goals.
