“The true history of the Democrats and black Americans is one Democrats should be ashamed of,” Coulter told The Daily Caller, discussing her new book, “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery From the Seventies to Obama,” to be released Tuesday.
“It has been the Republican Party from the beginning, and to this day [they] are the only ones that treated blacks both as human beings and as adults, with Republicans constantly pushing for civil rights and Democrats flipping only when it became politically — or let me say, electorally — advantageous for them to do so.”
“I tell the true history of civil rights,” she said.
Hers is a history where Republicans fought for civil rights and Democrats were often an obstacle to it. “Not all Democrats were segregationists,” Coulter writes, “but all segregationists were Democrats.”
