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.

Many people like me have felt the cry of racism was used as a fallacious epithet to obfuscate truth and hide liberal perfidy. Ann Coulter not only shows the hypocrissy of the left but provides irrefutable evidence of falsified data and trumped up stories that were no where close to the actual events; they describe to justify their progressive agendas. Black citizens have been duped by the left into believing all sorts of racial conspiracies, that simply do not exist. Ms Coulter supplies all the facts and actual stories behing these malicious slanders. Also, documented is the complicity of the liberal mainstream media, protecting the progressive agendas.
We remember a time when news organizations tried to present a fair reportage of actual events and were generally held accountable for their efforts. How far have we come, when media covers up crimes of the left and slanders anyone who leans to the right in our society. This book should make any fair minded citizen angry over the duplicity and hypocrissy in the media.

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.

Format: Hardcover
Ann Coulter has gone where no one, on the left OR right, has been willing to go: an honest, frank, no-BS discussion of racial politics in the US.

Her detractors will no doubt pile on and declare this book the Most Dangerous, Vile, Disgusting, Racist Book Ever. It will be declared "hate speech" (if it hasn't been already). But most of the people who scream "hate speech" in the coming months will not have read a single page of the book. I've read it, and it is a solid, rigorously researched book about the sordid state of racial politics in this country. Coulter is no apologist for racism, and has zero tolerance for the kind of attitudes that are routinely attributed to her. I think people who reflexively lash out at her and her books would be very, very surprised if they turned off MSNBC and its straw-man caricature of Ann Coulter, and took the time to find out what she actually has to say. She speaks for people who are absolutely opposed to real racism, but who also detest the sordid state of racial politics in this country.

Coulter acknowledges that real racism is part of our history, an outgrowth of slavery and its aftermath, a true blight on our historical record. But she argues that in recent decades, following the civil rights era, racism has declined and become largely a spent force. The Klan rallies, lynchings, separate water fountains, and all that despicable stuff from the past has gone the way of the Dodo bird; most people live and work comfortably with other races in a tolerant environment. Yet the left has taken over racial politics and keeps stoking the fires for its own partisan ends. Coulter argues that this serves no one's interest, least of all the minorities who the progressive left purports to be saving from racism.
