Race Cards

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.

This is what I have been saying for years. If the people of color truly knew the history of the civil rights movement, they would know that the Republicans were proactive in this. They would also know that Martin Luther King, Jr. WAS a REPUBLICAN. They would then also realize that the Democrats are their biggest enemies as they are the ones that have kept them slaves of all the entitlements of the government.

Wait till the evidence comes to the jury in the Zimmerman case, he will be acquitted of shooting the hoodlum Trayvon Martin also. He acted in self defense and killed a black teenager that was attacking him, but the truth don’t sell papers anymore, hell, look at our own local paper, it publishes lies all the time !
