Book Description

“Few things are as rare as an honest book about race. This is one of the very few, and one of the very best.”
—Thomas Sowell

For decades, the Left has been putting on a play with themselves as heroes in an ongoing civil rights movement—from which they were mostly absent at the time.

Ann Coulter fearlessly explains the real history of race relations in this country, including how white liberals twist that history to spring the guilty, accuse the innocent, and engender racial hatreds, all in order to win politically.

She shines the light of truth on cases ranging from Tawana Brawley to the LA riots and the Duke lacrosse scandal. And she shows how the Obama presidency has inspired the greatest racial guilt mongering of all time.

Editorial Reviews


Mugged is not just a book—it’s a public service.”
—The American Spectator
“A refreshing and informative antidote to the divisive narratives about race perpetuated by politicians and the mainstream media.”
—The Washington Times

5.0 out of 5 stars More clear talk from Ann February 14, 2013
When Ann Coulter writes columns or speaks on television, I normally avoid it. She just has a smug arrogance that is very off-putting. But then when I read almost all her books (and Mugged is no exception), I come away educated, informed, and well armed.
Mugged is a reminder of the bizarre warping of history which has occurred in my lifetime. The Republican party was founded to fight slavery, and was historically the party that fought racism. All the way until 1964. Then suddenly the Democrats became the champions of the civil rights struggle, and that's the way I learned the history, that Democrats were now and always the champions of civil rights. Mugged does a FABULOUS job of devastating that false argument, and explaining how it happened (I'll give you a hint, look who's gotten rich because of the "civil rights movement" since 1964. I recommend it to anyone who has been mystified at the hijacking of the civil rights movement.
Would only be better if it contain more ideas on how to counter this.

If I had any doubts about the need for this book, all I had to do was open up my morning paper and see the syndicated column by Leonard Pitts - headline teased to the front page - about the sighting of a "Don't Re-Nig" bumper sticker.

Pitts, who bravely battles racism every day whether he needs to or not, quotes a woman he doesn't name who says she saw such a bumper sticker, and then uses it to launch an entire column on pervasive Republican racism. No effort to determine if it was true, it's second or third-hand by the time it gets to you the reader, but if it allows to let liberals put the N word in play in the service of Obama's reelection, who cares?

And that's what this book is about: Racial demagoguery, which Ann Coulter has touched upon frequently but focuses on here. Her overarching theme is the deterioration of both race relations and black fortunes in the country starting in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Her premise is threefold:

First: Democrats, after having been the party propping up segregation for decades, cleverly substituted themselves as the party of racial equality after most progress in that field had actually been made by Republicans. Desegregating the military? Eisenhower? Sending troops to desegregate schools in Little Rock? Eisenhower. Civil rights bills in Congress in 1957 and the early 1960s? Supported more by Republicans than by Democrats. Finally pushing through real desegregation across the South? Nixon. Segregationists? All Democrats, including some liberal ones, with a lot more liberals around the country condoning it for partisan reasons: they needed that Solid South on Election Day and in Congress.

Kindle edition - part way through.

It is a tragic fact that the left has exploited blacks for their own gain, and to our detriment, for a couple decades now.

I have no desire to be placed in a state of endless dependency on a check that is not even enough to live on, in exchange for voting Democrat.

** What bothers me most is they are posing as our "friends" and "protectors" in doing this. It is hard to express the emotion of this deeply insulting trick.

I am not a big fan of Ann Coulter. I do not dislike her either, but she got this one right,

Democrat welfare party can stick your check where the sun does not shine, and I hope all brothers and sisters will join me in trying to be prosperous Americans on our own feet, and not kept in a state of subjection to their (almost all white) will.

You guys, go look up civil war history, it was the Democrat party that was the party of the South and of slavery. I say they have not changed at all, other than to get more sophisticated and to trick us into playing along with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ann gets it right September 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
There are a lot of folks out there who dislike Ann, even on the right, and I'll freely admit that I used to be one of them. I thought she was a haughty, misinformed purveyor of lowbrow conservatism. She was the most non-PC personality I'd ever read.

What I didn't realize is that she is intentionally incendiary in order to make points that more PC people are incapable of. "Mugged" is quite possibly the most inflammatory thing she has ever written, which puts it very high in the running for the most non-PC collection of ink and paper in the last two decades. What business does a rich tall skinny white woman have talking about race?!...Well, as it turns out, this is the best treatment of the issue I've encountered.

This book is crucial because the point is even MORE important than the theme she takes on in Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right, especially going into the election. Read properly [fairly], "Mugged" is a de-hypnotization manual for those who have always (falsely) assumed that Democrats are the party for racial minorities.

As we head into an election where minorities are expected to vote for Obama by an overwhelming margin, this book is an excellent reminder that it is Republicans, not Democrats, who are most closely aligned with the values and policy positions of minorities. You must read this if you are interested in the truth of race in politics.

Other must-reads for the 2012 Election include the AMAZING quick read
