Martin Luther King would have loved Ann Coulter?

Racial demagoguery has become rather visible recently. Ann Coulter provides a history lesson about racial issues in her newest book, Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama. Jefferey Lord thinks it is Ann Coulter’s Home Run and explains why at the American Spectator.

“In writing her newest book, Mugged: Racial Demagoguery From the Seventies to Obama Ms. Coulter takes the time to carefully and in detail explode the self-made liberal myth of liberals and liberalism as heroes in the American civil rights movement.” … “Ann Coulter gets it. Mugged is not just a book — it’s a public service. In chapter and verse, Coulter takes the time to detail the Left’s wretched racial history” … “All true. And Coulter, a lawyer, prosecutes her case with detailed enthusiasm.”

There are problems that are not pleasant to face. The race problem is very much about how one, just one, minority group has allowed resentment and envy to fester causing much misery and poverty. That penchant of the minority has been used, fueled and fed, for political purposes. Coulter’s book exposes that effort and highlights some of the tragedies that it has caused. The question is whether society can learn from history.
