    Be sure to tune in as Roman Genn, Ricochet Contributor, National Review Contributing Editor, Genius caricaturist, and former “bad boy” from the Soviet Union, talks with radio host Doreen Finkle Sept 11 at 9 PM EST. The show can be accessed here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/students-for-a-better-future-radio/2014/09/12/caricaturistcomedian-roman-genn-on-current-issues-of-the-day Arriving in the United States in 1991 at the age of 19, Moscow-born Roman was graduate of the famous Soviet art academy system. Unfortunately for the Kremlin, Roman’s natural wit would not be repressed, and by the time he was a teenager, he was selling his irreverent caricatures on the streets of Moscow to tourists. He was...
  • In my day, looting actually meant something

    I look at the events unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri, and I just shake my head. Youngsters have no respect for the art of forming a mob, breaking into a business, loading your arms with as many goods as you can carry, then fleeing — all in the name of political dissatisfaction. In my day, looting actually meant something. When I was a young man growing up disaffected and angry in Los Angeles in the 1960s, I realized systemic racism was to blame for many of my community’s ills, and my friends and I would spend hours each night engaged in...
  • Obama too handsome for good satire: caricaturist

    New US President Barack Obama is too good-looking to provide inspiration for cartoons in the same way former president George W Bush served as fodder for some of their most biting commentary, a caricaturist says. "It's never a gift for a caricaturist to draw a handsome man," said Pierre Kroll, from Belgium, which prides itself on its comic book culture, including Tintin.

    Those who admire and wish to propagate the bourgeois virtues—prudence, thrift, industry, honesty, moderation, politeness, self-restraint, and so forth—are sometimes haunted by an uncomfortable question: how would the world be if, as is not very likely, everyone were to adopt these virtues as his own? Would not the world be a duller (though of course a much better ordered) place—a kind of giant Lucerne or Vevey? It is surely not a coincidence that the iconography of hell is so much more vivid and interesting than that of heaven, a location that induces a deadly boredom even as one strains to...

    Guys this is going to take the cake. About 10 days ago at work one of my coworkers was typing away listening to Sean on his radio. (we get it on tape delay) The supervisor walked by and noted the station that showed up on the digital display. He berated him for listening to Sean because he is an evil conservative whack job and it offends people around him. Note he had headphones on so nobody could hear his radio. And in an office where the leader has a radio on at all times low that we can hear but...

    Meanwhile, the virus of anti-Semitism continues to conquer the Norwegian leftist 'elite'. This is arguably one of the sickest twists of the 'progressive' logic: accusing the Jewish leader of the crimes of none other than Hizbullah and painting him, who takes infinitely more precautions than his adversaries, as a blood-thirsty Nazi. Read the full story to see the actual caricature.Invoking a scene from the film Schindler's List, one of Norway's largest newspapers recently published a political cartoon comparing Prime Minster Ehud Olmert to the infamous commander of a Nazi death camp who indiscriminately murdered Jews by firing at them at...

    "I prefer mass caricature to mass censorship." With these words French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy boldly stated the case for western liberal pluralism over eastern theocratic tyranny. The current overkill of "outrage" by Moslems protesting the cartoons of Mohammed published in a Danish newspaper not only brings into stark relief the clash of civilizations we are engaged in, but also underlines the degree of lies and manipulations to which radical Moslem leaders will go in order to incite violence.

    Nearly half of those polled say they have become more skeptical about Islam as a religion after the global uproar around the Mohammed caricatures. The result comes from a survey carried out by InFact for Norway's best-selling newspaper VG. According to the survey, which was carried out on Tuesday, 47.8 percent of those asked said they were more skeptical about Islam, while 36.7 percent their opinion of the religion had not been affected by the caricature controversy. A small group of 6.5 percent said they were less skeptical about Islam after the turmoil. At the same time, 30.8 percent say...

    Those of us who support the nomination of Harriet Miers (even reluctantly) were warned repeatedly that we would be devastated, blown away, and inundated by the Noahide deluge of Hurricane Gamma, George Will's unanswerable final whirlwind of rhetorical devastation of Harriet Miers. Instead, all we got was a spritz of seltzer down our pants. Will's meticulous retailing of yawn-inducing epithets ("perfect perversity," "discredits," "degrades," "justifications," "deficit of constitutional understanding," "gross misunderstanding of conservatism," and "persons masquerading as its defenders" -- all from the first paragraph!); his hand-waving dismissal of counterargument (his entire final paragraph -- see below); the by now...

    MEXICO CITY — The Mexican government has issued postage stamps depicting an exaggerated black cartoon character known as Memin Pinguin (search), just weeks after remarks by President Vicente Fox (search) angered U.S. blacks. The series of five stamps released Wednesday depicts a hapless boy drawn with exaggerated features, thick lips and wide-open eyes. His appearance, speech and mannerisms are the subject of kidding by white characters in the comic book, which started in the 1940s and is still published in Mexico. Activists criticized the stamps as offensive, though officials denied it. "One would hope the Mexican government would be a...

    The Israeli embassy here has expressed "horror" at a cartoon published in the London daily Independent depicting Prime Minister Ariel Sharon as a monster eating a headless baby. The cartoon was published on Monday, when Britain marked Holocaust Day, and the embassy spokesperson Shuli Davidovich noted that the cartoon evoked "an ancient Jewish stereotype which would not have looked out of place in the 'Der Sturmer,' and which can unfortunately still be found in many Arabic newspapers." In a letter to the editor, published on Tuesday, she said the "blood-thirsty imagery not only misrepresents the real reason for the IDF's...
