In the cartoon, titled “Kavanaugh’s Daughter Says Another Prayer,” Kavanaugh’s ten-year old daughter is seen asking God to forgive her “angry, lying, alcoholic father for sexually assaulting Dr. Ford.”

    HAPEVILLE, Ga. - Georgia police have a warning for parents after a recent bust found drugs disguised as colorful candy cartoon characters and lollipops. Police found two firearms (one stolen), cash, suspected marijuana, pills, cannabis pops, and suspected powder cocaine after a drug bust in Hapeville, police said. The drugs look like Hello Kitty and the minions from “Despicable Me.” This could be dangerous if found by children.

    This is not good. A newspaper in Australia is catching A LOT of heat over a cartoon that was trying to spoof Serena Williams' incident at the U.S. Open -- because it's racist as hell. The cartoon -- drawn by Mark Knight (editorial cartoonist for the Herald Sun newspaper) -- shows the tennis superstar stomping on her racket. But, let's get serious, it looks like a Jim Crow-era, Sambo-style caricature of a black person -- not Serena Williams.

    During the finale of Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time, the series creators decided to maintain the current Liberal agenda of pushing prominent characters into turning gay in kid’s cartoons. The latest victim of the SJW scourge is Princess Bubblegum, who you would have thought would have been the love interest for Finn at the end of the series, but it turns out that Bubblegum and the vampire Marceline end up in a lesbian kiss to wrap up their battle against the big baddie. Youtuber sabelaprendes posted up the minute long clip, where at the end of the fight, Marceline checks on...

    Though Adventure Time’s series finale brought Finn and Jake’s televised adventures to an end this week, the event also confirmed one of the most interesting and longstanding theories about the show that astonished and delighted many fans. After multiple seasons of hints, clues, and varying amounts of queer subtext, Adventure Time’s finale confirmed that Princess Bubblegum and Marceline the vampire have romantic feelings for one another and are destined to be together. During a climactic battle against GOLB, a powerful and malevolent being from another dimension hellbent on destroying Ooo, Marceline watches as Bubblegum is apparently crushed, prompting the vampire...

    In a published statement he said he would never personally stop his campaign against Islam but the risk to innocents, and of attacks on the Netherlands, stemming from the proposed contest were too great. “My point about the intolerant nature of Islam has been proved again by this,” he said. Earlier this week, Dutch police arrested a 26-year-old man suspected of threatening to attack Wilders over his plan. … In 2005, Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published cartoons of Prophet Mohammad that sparked a wave of protest across the Muslim world and several attempts to kill either its editor or cartoonist Kurt...

    Turkish prosecutors are investigating the leader of the main opposition party to decide whether to charge him with insulting the president for sharing a cartoon showing President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan as a variety of animals in solidarity with students arrested for putting the image on a banner at their graduation, secularist newspaper Sözcü said. Thirteen years ago, a court dismissed charges that the cartoon, entitled “The World of Tayyips”, insulted Erdoğan by depicting the then-prime minister as a number of animals. The cartoon was drawn in response to Erdoğan suing another cartoonist who depicted him as a cat getting caught...

    The DC Universe recently was making news headlines because after half of century of costumed foreplay, Bruce Wayne proposed to Selina Kyle and the two were supposed to get married… but you know, it’s Batman, so things didn’t quite turn out as planned. Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe is now making headlines for a proposal and a wedding, but mainly because it’s a lesbian relationship being depicted on a kid’s show. As is standard with most Leftist agendas, the news was made to trend on social media and was quickly picked up by most Left-leaning media outlets. The event unraveled in...

    Is this 1921 cartoon the first recorded meme? When this comic was posted to Twitter, it caused excitement as people began to wonder if it was the first meme - a format-dependent joke, typically of a picture with a caption or subtitle - ever published. But we've found a version of the joke using the same format printed at least a year earlier in either 1919 or 1920. Both draw from the same template of the 'Expectations vs. Reality' joke, which contrasts two pictures side-by-side with an obvious discrepancy between them. It was subsequently reposted with new captions such as...

    NFL had better get its act together. There is nothing to discuss. The deadbeat NFL players, "Hate America" "Lock your arms, together" has failed miserably. Packers, Q/B, Aaron Rogers earns the title of "Failed Obama Girlie Boy, Pajama Boy" as the overwhelming majority of thousands of Greenbay Packer fans rejected his request that fans lock arms to show unity with the NFL America Haters on the Packers and Chicago Bear NFL teams.

    The illustrator behind Pepe the Frog, a cartoon frog initially created in the 2000s as a fun-loving post-college grad but eventually designated as a hate symbol by the Anti-Defamation League, has forced the removal of a children’s book from distribution that featured the frog. snip As The Washington Post has noted, the villain in the book is an alligator named Alkah, which many took as a reference to Muslims, and the farm where the story takes place is Wishington, a play on Washington. In recent years, the protagonist, Pepe, became a symbol of the so-called alt-right and white supremacy.

In 2010 Norris suggested a “Everybody Draw Mohammad Day.” A few days later she received her first death threat from a Muslim.

    In 1963, President Kennedy spoke to members of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. Kennedy asserted that "what makes editorial cartooning such a wonder" is the ability to "entertain and instruct us ... and ... place in one picture a story and a message and do it with impact and conviction and humor and passion – all that ... makes [editorial cartoonists] the most exceptional commentators on the American scene." According to Randall P. Harrison, "there are a handful of basic techniques which the cartoonist manipulates to create a symbolic world of make-believe." The first process, known as leveling, is...

On Tuesday, actress Lena Dunham debuted 100 Years, an animated short about Planned Parenthood that she created, along with other big names, in collaboration with her Lenny Letter and Now This Her. Dunham boasts strong ties with the abortion giant (and recently made headlines for saying she wished she had had an abortion). The video, narrated by multiple celebrities, aimed to tell the “story of the incredible woman who sacrificed everything” for...

    Nickelodeon, the American cable and satellite TV network aimed at kids and teens, has introduced its first animated “gay married” couple. Debuting in The Loud House — a cartoon about Lincoln Loud, an 11-year-old boy with 10 sisters — the scene features a friend coming for a stayover with Lincoln. Lincoln and his chum, Clyde McBride, have been counting down the time to the sleepover, so perhaps that’s why Lincoln announces: “Time to make history!” — before he opens the door to reveal Clyde and his two dads. Owned by Viacom Media Network, Nickelodeon targets children ages 2 to 17....
