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.

Another Coutler book that begged to be written...

Ann Coulter refutes the myth that Republicans are racist, and the Republican party, is the party of racism. She does this by recounting much of the actual history of the civil rights movement in America, from Reconstruction through the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Coulter's thesis is that, far from being the party of racism and bigotry, the Republicans are responsible for the advancement of civil rights for Blacks in America since the Civil War. It was only after the Democrat party realized that losing the Black vote would consign them to irrelevance that they moved from their position of opposition and obstruction to civil rights legislation, to embracing it, beginning with the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Coulter makes the case that, because Republican Barry Goldwater voted against the 1964 legislation (on purely progressive grounds, having supported prior civil rights bills), Democrats were able to seize on that opposition and spend the next 30 years painting the Republican party as the party of racism. She goes on to make that case that the Democrat party has always been the party of institutionalized racism, and makes a lucid, compelling, well-documented case for her thesis. The history is there, and verifiable, but largely unknown by the general public, who seems to only be able to digest 30 second sound bytes. Of course, fans of Ann Coulter will cheer when they hear her make her case using the sharp tongue and cutting jabs for which she is known. Coulter also narrates the book herself, and her argument is therefore delivered in a natural and convincing style, as opposed to previous Coulter audiobooks, which sounded less authentic because of their use of a professional narrator. Love her or hate her, if you are a person who will investigate facts apart from your biases presuppositions, Mugged gives lots of facts to investigate.

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.

Enlightening

What made the experience of listening to Mugged the most enjoyable?

Ann showed me how little I knew about the development of the race industry in our country and how it is used every day to further an ideology.

What did you like best about this story?

Ann lays out her argument as if she were prosecuting a case and teaching a lecture at the same time. The facts are well documented and presented in a way that makes it nearly impossible to not see what she is trying to say.

Which character – as performed by Ann Coulter – was your favorite?

Ann Coulter

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

Race in American politics

The inconvenient truth Democrats would like to forget about race in American politics and the way liberals have re-written history to take credit for emancipation and civil rights while neglecting Johnson's new society gave rise to welfare state. public housing to enslave blacks and ensure they stay on today's plantations.

Too Opinionated with Half Truths!

What did you love best about Mugged?

Book was very informative.

If you’ve listened to books by Ann Coulter before, how does this one compare?

NO.

Have you listened to any of Ann Coulter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

She captures and holds her listeners as with TV interviews.

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

Amazed to learn that Al Sharpton was in an FBI Cocaine Sting and that Black Muslims got away with brutal attack on New York police officers.

Any additional comments?

Ann Coulter is not a racist, but can understand why most Blacks would believe so according to this book. The police shootings were too one-sided with no cases where the black victims were innocent, and there are plenty. Her continued statements about illegitimate black birthrates made blacks appear immoral when she stated that something is wrong with a people who behaves in that manner. And as if so-called Black-on-Black crimes gives license to police to murder innocent black men without any complaints from the black community. There is no such thing as black on black crimes. Ordinary black people don't kill each other. These are crimes committed by young gang members fighting over drug turf. Get rid of the drugs and we'd get rid of the black on black crimes. MS. Coulter meant well, but this book is simply too one-sided with many facts left out.

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.
