Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama | [Ann Coulter]

Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama

For decades, the Left has been putting on a play with themselves as heroes in an ongoing civil rights move­ment - which they were mostly absent from at the time. Long after pervasive racial discrimination ended, they kept pretending America was being run by the Klan and that liberals were black America’s only protectors. It took the O. J. Simpson verdict - the race-based acquittal of a spectacularly guilty black celebrity as blacks across America erupted in cheers - to shut down the white guilt bank.

Publisher's Summary

"This isn’t a story about black people - it’s a story about the Left’s agenda to patronize blacks and lie to everyone else."

For decades, the Left has been putting on a play with themselves as heroes in an ongoing civil rights move­ment - which they were mostly absent from at the time. Long after pervasive racial discrimination ended, they kept pretending America was being run by the Klan and that liberals were black America’s only protectors.

It took the O. J. Simpson verdict - the race-based acquittal of a spectacularly guilty black celebrity as blacks across America erupted in cheers - to shut down the white guilt bank.

But now, fewer than two decades later, our "postracial" president has returned us to the pre-O.J. era of nonstop racial posturing. A half-black, half-white Democrat, not descended from American slaves, has brought racial unrest back with a whoop.

The Obama candidacy allowed liberals to engage in self-righteousness about race and get a hard-core Leftie in the White House at the same time. In 2008, we were told the only way for the nation to move past race was to elect him as president. And 53 percent of voters fell for it.

Now, 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. You’ll learn, for instance, how:

  • A U.S. congressman and a New York mayor con­spired to protect cop killers who ambushed four police officers in the Rev. Louis Farrakhan’s mosque.
  • The entire Democratic elite, up to the Carter White House, coddled a black cult in San Francisco as hun­dreds of the cult members marched to their deaths in Guyana.
  • New York City became a maelstrom of racial hatred, with black neighborhoods abandoned to crimi­nals who were ferociously defended by a press that assessed guilt on the basis of race.
  • Preposterous hoax hate crimes were always believed, never questioned. And when they turned out to be frauds, the stories would simply disappear from the news.
  • Liberals quickly switched the focus of civil rights laws from the heirs of slavery and Jim Crow to white feminists, illegal immigrants, and gays.
  • Subway vigilante Bernhard Goetz was surprisingly popular in black neighborhoods, despite hysterical denunciations of him by The New York Times.
  • Liberals slander Republicans by endlessly repeating a bizarro-world history in which Democrats defended black America and Republicans appealed to segregationists. The truth has always been exactly the opposite.

Going where few authors would dare, Coulter explores the racial demagoguery that has mugged America since the early 70s. She shines the light of truth on cases ranging from Tawana Brawley; Lemrick Nelson; and Howard Beach, New York; to the LA riots and the Duke lacrosse scandal. And she shows how the 2012 Obama campaign is going to inspire the greatest racial guilt mongering of all time.

    Story
    "Her* not Here*"

    Any review that says they liked her other books but disliked this one is not being honest. This was one of her best (if not THE best) book. Its hard to rate them because the topics are so varied and are all of the same general style but if she has "bad" books, this most certainly is not one of them. If I had to pick a bad book from her I would have to say one of the article compilation books, and ONLY because they aren't new material just her putting a year or so worth of her newspaper articles into hardback.

    This book reminded me why Ann Coulter is the most insightful political commentator today. There has NEVER been someone like her. She makes so many subtle points in Mugged that you have to read it more than once to "get" while also making you laugh.

    Story
    "Never Disappointing, FANTASTIC!"
    What made the experience of listening to Mugged the most enjoyable?

    Ann Coulter reads the story herself, and the way she tells the story, bring a lot to the table.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mugged?

    Thats the DEMS hijacked the civil rights issues.


    What does Ann Coulter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The depth of the detail of her facts make her arguments for her. She does all the research. Her conclusions are based on facts, and she clearly spells them out. She never follows through an idea without backing them up with the facts to support them. It really makes her books necessary reading for anyone searching for the truth.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    You can't absorb all the information in one sitting. I would say you need to listen to this book more than once, and you'll enjoy doing so over and over again. Thats how good this book was.


    Any additional comments?

    Ann Coulter's books are wonderful. She has a way of telling a story, supported completely by the facts. It makes you think. It tells you things you definitely didn't already know. She has a unique prospective to any topic. Having her influence the political debate, whether you agree with her or not, is a great thing for our society. Because she has the facts to support her arguments, its difficult for the opposition to win with simply commentary.

    Story
    "Grabbed my attention"

    Ann Coulter reveals the truth: and the truth is that there are those in America who stir up racial tensions to serve their own purposes. The media purposley select certain stories, often leaving certain facts out to create the perception of white people hate black people and do not want them to succeed in life. If you read Mugged you will understand that we have been duped.

    Story
    "This is true, and everyone should read it."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Mugged to be better than the print version?

    The liberal left want everyone to think they are the party of the Minorities, but they also want the minorities to stay in the place the liberals put them. They do not want to have to contend with them. They will also sell them out if the issue they are fighting at the moment requires a sacrificial lamb. It is more loving to tell a people, pull yourself up, work hard, and no one will ever take what you have earned. No one in the USA is holding minorities down except the modern left!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mugged?

    The meeting called by Spiro Agnew on the assassination of Martin Luther King


    What does Ann Coulter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice inflection adds immensely to the experience. Her passin for the subject comes through in her words.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, it made me think.

    Story
    "More Truth about the Democrat Party"

    Well, first, most people can't handle the Truth. If that's you, you're not going to like this book. On the other hand, if you find an unvarnished , fact-filled narrative of the past 40 years refreshing, it is a book well worth listening to.
    Ms. Coulter hammers away relentlessly, as is her style, and presents fact after fact, irrefutably.
    I very much enjoy Coulter's work, and I believe I have every one of her audiobooks.
    If you have your head buried in the sand , or refuse to believe reality when it slaps you in the face, this is not the book for you.
    On the other hand , if you want to face reality, and confront our social and fiscal problems head-on, I suggest you start with her first book, and work your way up from there.
    For those so inclined , another , quite different viewpoint , can be found in an excellent
    audio book , by Alfonzo Rachel.
    Enjoy !

    Story
    "It will make you sick, in a good way."
    Would you listen to Mugged again? Why?

    Yes. There is so much information. I want to re listen so I can write down the cases and research them myself. I also want to read the books written by other authors she mentions.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The overwhelming evidence of media bias. The shameless race baiting by liberal journalists. They salivate over human misery and create it when it doesn't exist. They will not allow racism to die. They lie. They sympathize with murderers. They are the worst racists of all. They use race to leverage power, and they know they can use racial demagoguery to simultaneously increase power amongst their piers and bully dissenters into silence.


    What does Ann Coulter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like watching Ann being interviewed, she is really funny. This is no different.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and no. It is very interesting, but also made me so disgusted I had to take a break now and then.


    Any additional comments?

    Like I said, this book will make you sick, in a good way, and it is oddly empowering. If what Ann says is true, then we should all be truly brave like Ann Coulter because to do anything less is cowardly and complicit with the worst kind of bigotry, racism, and evil.
