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.

    This isn't a story.

    Not film material; ionly a documentary.

    Story
    "I Learned more from this book!!"
    If you could sum up Mugged in three words, what would they be?

    This book was so eye opening. When I read a book I might mark a page 3 or 4 times tops, usually to go back and learn more about that subject. In this book I wanted to flag about every 3rd page. This book should be the basis for a history class in High School and College.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    The American press is out of control, yhey have an agenda in mind and truth or no truth it doesn't matter who it hurst, who's lives are destroyed by their lies the only important thing is that they keep this lie of a racist america alive. I am refering to the several cases of false racist points published in the many articles that Ann covers in the book.




    Any additional comments?

    Democrats are power hungry racists.It still goes on today right under our noses. Example of Democrats racist continue in public housing. It keeps a lot of the blacks in one area, Republicans want to go to the “voucher system” so that they can choose where to live and apply the voucher towards an apartment or house in a nicer area.A perfect example is in Galveston Texas where a large area of public housing was destroyed in the hurricane. The city mayor wants to go to a voucher system but the federal government is forcing them to build what will again become slums.

    Once again Ann Coulter defies the conventional wisdom foisted upon us by the "mainstream" media to poke holes in the leftist/Marxists tactic of labeling to vilify and silence the opposition. I love her brilliance and ability to to make highly logical arguments in a helpful and often humorous way. I can see why the left hates her - darkness cannot stand the illuminating light of truth borne out by facts.

    Story
    "The side of the news you don't generally hear"

    Coulter discusses a side of the news that is ignored by most media outlets -- and does it in an interesting, provocative manner. Some may disdain her, but she provides balance to the normally liberal mainstream media.

    Story
    "Here other books are great skip this one"
    Would you try another book from Ann Coulter and/or Ann Coulter?

    Here other books are great but this one is not. She made the wrong conclusion. Read Geert Wilders it is because society judges all cultures as the same.


    Has Mugged turned you off from other books in this genre?

    nope. I am just going to read more reviews before buying.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Great examples and portray of race husler Al Sharpton.


    Any additional comments?

    Read here other books or Geerts book not this one.
