Tucker Carlson put the United States ambassador to Zimbabwe on blast Friday for his praise of the recently deceased strongman Robert Mugabe.
Carlson specifically criticized a “completely out of control” executive branch “run by bureaucrats who don’t care at all who was elected” after the ambassador to Zimbabwe, Brian Nichols, lauded his legacy.
On Friday, September 6, 2019, Mugabe died in Singapore at the age of 95.
“Former Zimbabwe dictator Robert Mugabe died today,” the Fox News host said on Friday night’s edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight.
Carlson added, “He was 95 years old and hiding in Singapore when he died. Here is how the U.S. Embassy chose to commemorate the death of a dictator, and we are quoting, ‘The United States extends its condolences to the Mugabe family and the people of Zimbabwe as they mourn the passing of former President Robert Mugabe. We join the world in reflecting on his legacy in securing Zimbabwe’s independence.’”
Originally, the tweet from the U.S. Embassy in Harare praised Mugabe, but was soon taken down after it received considerable backlash from right-wingers.

Mugabe’s 37-year reign was characterized by economic instability and human rights abuses.
In many ways, Zimbabwe served as a predecessor to Venezuela’s economic collapse, in which inflation and private property confiscations brought both countries to their heels.
“It’s hard to believe that’s real, but it is real,” Carlson continued in his criticism of Mugabe. “Apparently the U.S. Ambassador to Zimbabwe signed off on it. He should be recalled for that. Meanwhile back in Washington, the State Department released a statement praising Mugabe for, and we’re quoting, ‘liberating Zimbabwe’ This is when you know the executive branch of government is completely out of control, that it’s being run by bureaucrats who don’t care at all who was elected, who are acting out of their left wing agendas without any restraint whatsoever.”
The Fox News host described Mugabe as “such a bad leader that no normal person could look at him and say we need to mourn his passing. Not one person.”
“The only words in response to his death would be good riddance,” he stated.
Carlson concluded, “He wrecked that country. He took control of one of the richest countries in southern Africa and reduced it to starvation. He made its currency as valuable as wallpaper. He literally committed genocide against an ethic group almost as soon as he was elected in 1980. Roberts Mugabe didn’t liberate his nation, he destroyed it, and only the U.S. State Department doesn’t understand that. Somebody ought to get to the bottom of who sent those tweets out.”
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
