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 you know Ann, you know that (1) she's extremely bright; (2) she never puts a book together without abundant footnotes to back what she says, and (3) she fills the spaces between historical story telling with weapons grade snark.

Never a dull moment in this, and I read it in spare moments on on a biz trip. While the subtitle says "from the seventies to Obama", she really goes farther back. Starting from the Eisenhower administration through the sixties and up to today, she traces the unfortunate history of racial demagoguery and the lives it has cost. Both figurative and actual, as she recounts stories of the deaths of police officers and others whose murderers have gone unpunished, and the lives ruined through false claims, thanks to the race demagogues.

If you think Ann's going to pull punches, you just don't know her. Confidential to college students: master the vocabulary Ann uses and get higher scores on your GRE! (Just kidding... sorta)

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.

I liked this book. Although I was raised a liberal Democrat and still consider myself an Independent politically, I have gotten REALLY sick of the constant chants of "racism" throughout the media and liberal / political society. I keep looking at these situations objectively (Michael Brown "Hands Up, Don't Shoot," Eric Gardner, etc.) and I see criminals resisting arrest and generally acting like rebellious, insouciant cretins!

Then we're supposed to feel really sorry for the criminal (and not the cop), when the criminal's stupid, thoughtless actions of yelling, fighting with the police and resisting arrest result in him or her getting slammed down to the pavement.

Coulter is great at aptly and enjoyably piercing these myths and ferreting out the truth of these situations. It was so refreshing to hear her talk about how ridiculous the OJ Simpson verdict was (even many blacks polled thought he was guilty) as well as scandals like Tawana Brawley pretend-rape hoax (promoted by Al Sharpton) and others. Kudos to Ann Coulter. Now if only the rest of the world would catch on...

Let's focus on REAL problems, not "pretend" racism, where it doesn't even exist.
