Why Did World Leaders Nominate This ‘Tyrant’ as a ‘Goodwill Ambassador’?

What happened?

After protest, the World Health Organization has rescinded its “goodwill ambassador” title from Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe.

The decision to appoint Mugabe in a goodwill ambassador role fighting diseases in Africa sparked outrage worldwide thanks to his long track record of human rights abuses.

Did no one check out this guy’s resume or what?

Here are some of the Mugabe regime’s violations of human rights:

  • Cracking down on political dissent
  • Destroying Zimbabwe’s health care system
  • Crushing the country’s agriculture industry and depriving most of the nation of food
  • Influencing the spread of cholera and other diseases thanks to starvation and poverty from bad policies

Glenn’s take?

“Thankfully, someone at the World Health Organization returned to sanity,” Glenn said of the decision to rescind the appointment. “They remembered, ‘Oh, yeah, that’s right, he’s a despot, a tyrant, a killer.

“To think that somebody who helped spread a raging cholera epidemic in his own country would fight diseases is insane.”

GLENN:  Forty-eight hours, that is how long the president of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, held the position of goodwill ambassador of the UN.  The World Health Organization chose Mugabe, because they thought he would be an advocate for fighting diseases such as cancer and diabetes in Africa.  Well, thankfully, someone at the World Health Organization returned to sanity and rescinded the appointment when two days later, they remembered, oh, yeah, that's right.  He's a despot, a tyrant, a kill perfect.

To think that somebody who helped spread a raging cholera epidemic in his own country would fight diseases is insane.  This is a man who has killed thousands of his own people for political dissent.  He destroyed Zimbabwe's health care program.  He eviscerated the agricultural system.  He forced seizure of white-owned farms, collapsed the economy, and has led to devastating poverty and mass starvation all across his country.  Robert Mugabe?

He single-handedly was responsible for reducing the life expectancy in Zimbabwe from 62 years to 36 years.  That's the lowest in the entire world.

Believe me when I say, this man is incapable of doing anything good.  This is a guy who aspired to be like Adolf Hitler.

I'm going to quote Mugabe.  Quote, I am still the Hitler of my time.  Hitler has only one objective, justice for his people, sovereignty for his people, recognition for the independence of his people, and their rights over resources.  If that's Hitler, then let me be Hitler tenfold.  Ten times, that's what we stand for.

End quote.  Who in their right mind at the World Health Organization could be this stupid?  By the way, not the first time the United Nations honored Mugabe.  In 2012, the UN endorsed him as a tourism ambassador.  Oh.

The title is kind of ironic because Mugabe has been banned from traveling to most parts of the world because of his atrocious human rights violations.  Not to mention, there is nothing to tour in his country, except devastation, poverty, disease, and I don't know, cemeteries.

If a governmental organization insists on appointing Mugabe to something, it should be to -- to appoint him as the ambassador to the deepest, darkest, reassesses of hell.  That is an appointment I can get behind, and that would be the only reason I would send another dime to the UN.

Do you have the GUTS to fight for freedom?

If Republicans lose their majority in the U.S. Senate after the Georgia runoff election, we may be facing dark times. So here's what you need to do: it's time mentally to prepare to stand up for freedom, which will likely take a LOT of courage from ALL of us. But, Glenn says, 'I'm not sitting down.' And, it only takes 15-20 percent of us to change the world. Use this Thanksgiving Day to discuss with your families the grim times we potentially may face, and how together you can best articulate to others WHY America's core principles are so important to preserve. So, who's in? Do YOU have the guts to fight for freedom?

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.
