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.

informative and entertaining
This is the second book I've listened to by Ann Coulter and as usual she holds no punches. The hard copy version I'm guessing must be written in a sarcastic and facetious manner. Her own narration of this book makes that come alive and at times is very funny. The point she makes about the use of white guilt by the media, celebrities and prominent black personalities, to promote the agenda of the Democrat party is the bottom line in this book. As much as I enjoy her animated narration, the constant bombardment of sarcasm and the repetitious examples to make her point can get a bit tiresome. Additionally one can very easily get lost in what is sarcasm and what is fact. However I did find myself chuckling often throughout the book. I've only given it 4 stars just because of the monotony. Otherwise I would highly recommend this book for it's content on a crucial issue, and not just about the American context, but it's relevance and application to many countries in the West. FYI I'm Australian.

A book full of Coulter's own racial demagoguery
What would have made Mugged better?
Coulter jumps too quickly between factoids without establishing the validity of statements. Far too much hypocrisy and double standards. Not enough time spent justifying ideology with far too much focus on revisionist and cherry picked interpretations of landmark cases involving liberals and black people. Spends far too little time addressing feminism or gay marriage equality or explaining why these are not to be considered civil rights issues. Constant redefinition of terminology in a completely self serving manner for example; racism = what liberals do to blacks, demagoguery = something only liberals are capable of, Celtics = backwards and the cultural source of black people's problems, Civil Rights = furthering the interests of black people, Obama = ultra liberal. Uses every possible opportunity to resort to insult when more focus on ideological debate would be more productive.
How could the performance have been better?
Ann Coulter has a grinding sounding voice and should have left the reading of her own text to a professional reader.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mugged?
Many of the chapters mid way through the book dwell on historical election results or cherry picked statements regarding perceived liberal interpretations of said events, not really relevant or interesting to modern political or ideological discourse.
Any additional comments?
Mugged only helps to reinforce what the political certain already know about their opposition, a partisan polemic that will have little to offer the open minded or centrist reader. An interesting insight into the mental gymnastics and blatant hypocrisy required to sustain alt-right political thinking.

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.

Thank you for not being afraid to tell the truth
Thank you for not being afraid to tell the truth.
Racial discrimination is not eliminated by replacing it with discrimination against another group. It also is not improved by treating any group like they are incapable.

"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.
