Ann Coulter went head-to-head today with the women of The View to promote her new book, “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery From The Seventies To Obama”. When you view this 2-part interview, it looks like Whoopi Goldberg was about to mug Ann Coulter…

After reading Michelle Malkin’s book, “Culture of Corruption”, this one is sure to feed my soul in equal measure…
If you don’t know who Ann Coulter is or what she stands for, click on “Ann Coulter” in my BlogRoll at the bottom of my QueenBeeWorld… site where I host a lot of others with similar views to my own.
Here’s a sneak peek into Ann Coulter’s new book, “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery From The Seventies To Obama”. I like her no-nonsense political views, and here she elaborates on racial issues and how the Left view blacks. As I repeatedly blogged about this same issue, I find it ironic how blacks support Democrats when history reveals that it was the Democrats who wanted to keep blacks in slavery, and it was the Republicans who fought and gave their lives to abolish it. Some people never learn…
“Ah, yes, truth. Funny how everyone is always asking for it, but when they get it, they don’t believe it because it’s not the truth they want to hear.”
Ann Coulter’s new book on racial issues
|Ann Coulter’s latest book — “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama” — comes out on Sept. 25, just weeks ahead of Election Day, but it’s not the kind of tome you’d expect from the conservative firebrand.Mitt Romney, for instance, isn’t mentioned at all. And, although much of the 336-page book discusses President Barack Obama (and Democrats, generally), it also takes a trip down memory lane, exploring events in our nation’s racial history as far back as the Civil War.Dedicated to “the freest black man in America,” Coulter’s “Mugged,” published by Sentinel/Penguin Group USA, is an exploration of the idea that, as she puts it, “the entire history of civil rights consists of Republicans battling Democrats to guarantee the constitutional rights of black people.”(Of slavery, Coulter calls it “a policy defended to the death of Democrats,” for instance).On the issue of current events, much of Coulter’s criticism of the president centers on his willingness to allow “others to make despicable racial smears on his behalf.”“As the New York Times described Obama’s typical campaign strategy back in 2008: ‘This has been [campaign manager David] Axelrod’s career, an eternal return to Chicago and to the politics of race.’”“Obama has repeatedly returned to the well of racial divisiveness to serve his political ends,” Coulter writes. “His 2008 presidential campaign managed to revive the white guilt that had long since dissipated, and then hinted that the one path to racial reconciliation was to make him president. Only then could we stop talking about race — a conversation he had initiated in the first place.”
“He was a dream come true for liberal elites: They could indulge in self-righteousness on race and get a hardcare leftie into the White House at the same time!”
Coulter even takes on Obama’s biography: “Obama’s childhood consisted of a Beverly Hills, 90210 existence at the prestigious Punahou School in Honolulu (2006 winner of ‘greenest’ school in America!). And yet he still managed to develop a racial hair trigger. Reading about Obama’s race fixation in the middle of suburban banality is akin to reading Hitler’s obsessive musing on his Germanic identity.”
Obama’s one-time pastor and friend, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, also figures prominently in Coulter’s discussion of race and the Democratic Party.
“If a white pastor had said what Obama’s preacher had said — not about black people, but literally, the exact same words — people might have noticed he’s crazier than the love child of David Duke and Ward Churchill (America-hating fake Indian). Both Churchill and the Reverend Wright, incidentally, referred to the attacks of 9/11 as the chickens coming ‘home to roost.’”
“Imagine a pastor calling Condoleezza Rice, ‘Condoskeeza Rice.’ Imagine a white pastor saying, ‘Racism is the American way. Racism is how this country was founded … We believe in white supremacy and black inferiority. And believe it more than we believe in God.’”
“The Democrats’ slogan during the Bush years was: ‘Dissent is patriotic.’ Under Obama, it’s ‘Dissent is racist.’” Later, Coulter writes, “Any fact that makes Americans less likely to vote for a Democrat is now called a racist smear.”
She also takes particular joy in poking fun of former broadcaster Keith Olbermann, referring to him as a “pasty white fruitcake,” an “Agriculture state school graduate” and “a gigantic fruit” (She also revels in the fact that Olbermann is unemployed). “Not everyone who wasn’t popular in high school has to spend the rest of his life seeking revenge,” Coutler writes of Olbermann.
Coulter’s dive into America’s racial history is likely to provide plenty of reason for rage for those on the other side of the ideological spectrum. She calls the video of Rodney King’s Los Angeles beating, “the most destructive edit in history” (“[W]hat the public saw was the officers’ final efforts to subdue a deranged suspect after all other methods had proved futile”), the 1988 Willie Horton ad “the greatest, fairest, most legitimate ad ever used in politics”) and the Confederate flag a representation of “a pride in values that exist independently of the institution of slavery”).
If “Mugged” seems like a slight diversion from Coulter’s usual serving of conservative punditry on current events, Coulter admits as much in the book’s acknowledgements, saying “the idea for this book struck me like a thunderbolt in April,” and it was a rush for her to complete it and get it on bookshelves just five months later.
