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.

Peace

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.

Format: Hardcover
When a free and independent mind like Ann Coulter writes a well-researched book full of truth, the political liberals on Amazon throw a hissy fit. They try to shut down independent thought by rating the book as worth only one star (even though they haven't read it). If you believe their ratings, I have some ocean-front property to sell you in Arizona. Unfortunately, Amazon allows comments without verifying purchases and they get to play this silly, and censoring, game. How sad.

As with all of her books, Ann does a completely thorough job of researching her facts. Being an attorney, she is aware of how people would love to sue her if she gets it wrong. Not only is her research impeccable, her wit and analysis is always fun to read. There is a reason she gets under the skin of so many people - she is dangerously accurate.

There is no such thing as collective guilt. None of us are responsible for the actions of other people only for the reason they have light or dark skin. We are responsible for our own actions, not others. We are all members of the smallest minority - individuals. Ann will convince you that there is no reason for 'white guilt' and it is used only as a political ploy to further the goals of racial demagogues. It is time to progress past the past of collective identification to the future of individualism where each individual is treated as a unique and wonderful human being.

You will enjoy the book!
