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.

    "Eyeopening and frank look at race relations"

    I rather enjoyed the book. It shows how the left media manipulates the people into a self-loathing state and perpetuates a false image of minorities and caucasians in typecasted rolls of "the oppressed victims" and "the oppressive perpetrators" respectively.

    "I'm Fully Converted to the Right."

    After reading Coulter's book, I'm pretty much ashamed I was ever apart of the Liberal Party. I'm proud of being a black American and I'll never look at the media in same light again.

    "An Uncomfortable History of Democrat Coruption"

    Ann Coulter lays bare the "liberal's" history of using race to gain power. This is an uncomfortable history our nation has yet to come to grips with. How could it when nearly all the means of telling the story are in the hands of those who would see a loss of power of these things were widely known.

    Story
    "Ms. Coulter's Research Strikes Again"

    Ann Coulter is a terrific historian and has succeeded in telling the development of racism in the United States. Our nation's war against itself is a stunning portrayal of the liberal's blame game. As I grew up I noticed that for some reason, our country was attempting to find racism behind every person; (Especially every Republican). As I grew up in a suburban Chicago home, it seemed liberal fingers were pointing at me! I was very active in my community's African-American neighborhoods too. I came from a decidedly lower middle class white town but I worked at low paying or volunteer jobs....which I did because I wanted to, not because I was shamed into it. However, I was shocked to learn that I was considered a racist...go figure. It's too bad that my altruism was actually questioned when I really wished to just help kids have a good time.

    "Good book"

    Good book to read for open-minded people. Frustrating and interesting to read.

    The following words are added as fodder to make the audible app submit my review. Annoying

    Story
    "Good review over several decades."
    If you could sum up Mugged in three words, what would they be?

    I thought it was well thought out and put together. I am not a fan of hers and read the book on a recommendation. Now if she would please do just as good in her next book about the lies and demagoguery from the side she isn't so inclined to disparage. The chronology is easy to follow and research seems complete. If she puts her mind to it things turn out very well in her story telling. As I suggested, I would a more balanced approach from her. Not in the same book for sure.


    What about Ann Coulter’s performance did you like?

    I liked that she read the book.

    ""The rest of the Story", what the Media left out."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book give you great Insight to what media leaves out, and what parts of the story it wants you to focus on. The Media edits out what does not fit the Liberal agenda.
