Mugabe Coup-Ed up on House Arrest After Military Take-Over

Zimbabwe is under military control after the country’s military put leader Robert Mugabe under house arrest … something the Zimbabwe army claimed in a TV statement wasn’t a military takeover.

On today’s show, Glenn broke down what happened and pointed out why this shift has all the marks of a military coup. While Mugabe is infamous for his violations of human rights, being ruled by military leaders may or may not be an upgrade for Zimbabwe.

“There’s always another monster,” Glenn said.

GLENN: Yesterday on the radio, people heard this. This is not a military takeover. I repeat, this is not a military takeover.

That's what the Zimbabwe defense forces announced yesterday when their military vehicles and more than 100 troops crowded the capitol and at least three explosions were set off. Robert Mugabe's army explained that they were only targeting criminals around Mugabe, who are committing crimes that are causing social and economic suffering in the country, and they're just trying to bring justice.

Uh-huh.

Yeah, probably a military takeover. The turmoil within Mugabe's army comes after the 93-year-old dictator, who I thought was dead long ago, many people wish he were, fired his deputy and long-time ally. This happened last week. That guy had the military support.

The deputy was next in line to run the country, in the event -- and it's never going to happen, of Mugabe's death.

When he was swiftly dismissed, Mugabe appointed his wife to that role instead. Hmm.

Now, that usually is a big no, no. You know, within unstable dictatorships. It's kind of like dictatorship 101. You don't willy-nilly appoint your wife to the next highest position at the last minute and screw your friends over and don't expect some tanks to be rolling your way.

For 37 years, Mugabe has ruled supreme without a whisper of a military coup. But it looks like that's about to change finally. Maybe, maybe this will be a good thing. I have to imagine anyone overthrowing Robert Mugabe could do a better job for Zimbabwe. But I could be wrong. There's always a bigger monster.

A spokesman for the Zimbabwe defense forces announced that as soon as we accomplish our mission, we expect the situation to return to normalcy.

The problem is, the people of Zimbabwe have never known normalcy. Whatever the Zimbabwe defense forces idea of normal is, most likely it is nowhere close to the normal that we know.

WATCH: The Jan. 6 DISTRACTION: Glenn & President Trump on Overcoming America’s REAL Challenges

Democrats and the mainstream media are laser-focused on making the one-year anniversary of January 6 the only news topic this week. The New York Times editorial board says, “January sixth is not in the past, it is every day.”

The Left could not be more tone-deaf on this. Average Americans don’t dwell on January 6 because they can’t afford to. They have real challenges to deal with, many of which didn’t even exist one year ago – things like food and gas prices and inflation. Every day, Americans are experiencing the stark difference it makes to live under a federal government controlled by Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer.

Glenn Beck says leftists are using January 6 as a distraction from their own drastic failures over the past year. Americans want to talk about real issues, so Glenn traveled to Mar-a-Lago for an exclusive conversation with former President Trump about our reality under Biden’s leadership now and how we fix our future. They also discuss the authoritarian vaccine mandates, what he would do about Fauci if he were still in office, and the growing threats from Russia and China.

The former president also answers how he would take on a Deep State committed to his destruction if he runs for a second term. Finally, Glenn reveals his strategy for candidates to easily win against the disastrous Democrats in ’22 and ’24.
