The Nation is proud to publish “Killed Cartoons: Free speech under siege” by Rob Rogers, an award-winning nationally syndicated editorial cartoonist, lately of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, where he was fired for mocking Donald Trump.
About: These cartoons appear as part of our OppArt series. At this dangerous moment in history, our actions will determine our very survival. As artists, we use our pens, our pencils, our brushes, and our ideas to cast a light on darkness and combat the forces that are driving us towards a precipice. Curated by Andrea Arroyo, Steve Brodner, and Peter Kuper, OppArt features artistic dispatches from the front lines of resistance—published Monday through Friday, a diverse set of artists take aim and draw.
Founded by abolitionists in 1865, The Nation has chronicled the breadth and depth of political and cultural life, from the debut of the telegraph to the rise of Twitter, serving as a critical, independent, and progressive voice in American journalism.
