Skip to comments.Race Cards (Sowell on Coulter's book 'Mugged')
Posted on 10/08/2012 12:52:37 PM PDT by jazusamo
If you are sick and tired of seeing politicians and others playing the race card, or if you are just disgusted with the grossly dishonest way racial issues in general are portrayed, then you should get a copy of Ann Coulter's new book, "Mugged." Its subtitle is: "Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama."
Few things are as rare as an honest book about race. This is one of the very few, and one of the very best.
Many people will learn for the first time from Ann Coulter's book how a drunken hoodlum and ex-convict, who tried to attack the police, was turned into a victim and a martyr by the media, simply by editing a videotape and broadcasting that edited version, over and over, across the nation.
They will learn how a jury which saw the whole unedited videotape and acquitted the police officers of wrongdoing was portrayed as racist, setting off riots that killed innocent people who had nothing to do with the Rodney King episode.
Meanwhile, the people whose slick editing set off this chain of events received a Pulitzer Prize.
Even the Republican President of the United States, George H.W. Bush, expressed surprise at the jury's verdict, after seeing the edited videotape, while the jury saw the whole unedited videotape. Even Presidents should keep their mouths shut when they don't know all the facts. Perhaps especially Presidents.
Innumerable other examples of racial events and issues that have been twisted and distorted beyond recognition are untangled and revealed for the frauds that they are in "Mugged."

Reading your post of Dr. Sowell as you were pinging jaz, and thanks for that. We’ll be getting that book.
We find most of the time we can pick up Ann’s books for the best price at the local Costco.
Congratulations, Ann! Your status as a writer is elevated by producing a work worthy of praise by this monumental thinker.
There can be no better advocate for this book than Sowell...

This was when I truly learned that our MSM was COMPLETELY corrupt. Rodney King attacked the cops repeatedly, and all of his attacks were edited out of local and national news. Only CBN ever showed the unedited version.( They got the tape because a network editor slipped the unedited version to CBN. )
Anybody remember that George Bush joined L.A. Mayor Bradley in condemning the verdict? The riots started shortly thereafter.
I vividly remember Reginald Denny getting dragged out of his semi and smashed in the head with brick.
” I vividly remember Reginald Denny getting dragged out of his semi and smashed in the head with brick.”
Damian “Football” Williams smashed Denny’s head, and got a light prison term. He had been arrested 18 times prior to Denny. He should have received a 20 year hitch.
I don’t remember ever seeing the “complete” tape. I didn’t know there was one.
I saw the tape the very first time it was aired. Never saw that version again! I thought it looked like he was on pcp!
“I dont remember ever seeing the complete tape. I didnt know there was one.”
E mail CBN. They might be able to tell you where you can view it.
Do you see how powerful the MSM is ? I’ll bet most Americans don’t know the videotape was heavily edited. The Simi Valley, California jury saw the unedited tape, and found the cops not guilty.
No consolation to the new victim's family, but Football Williams is now serving a life sentence on an unrelated murder.
Based on this review by Dr Sowell, I just downloaded Ann’s book to my Kindle Fire. Looking forward to reading it.
And in the era of YouTube the tape hasn’t gotten out because??? Just curious.
Most MSM employees are skid marks on Journalism's shorts.
Mr. Journalism, change you underwear!
