    Edward G. Robinson

    Jew Score:



    (Emanuel Goldenberg)
    December 12, 1893 – January 26, 1973

    To the left is gangster Rocky from Bugs Bunny cartoons (he usually appears with his partner, the dimwitted Mugsy). He is based on Edward G. Robinson.

    To the right is Police Chief Wiggum from The Simpsons. He is also based on Edward G. Robinson.

    Who is this Robinson and how did he contribute to cartoon characters on such opposite sides of the law?

    The Romanian-born Emanuel Goldenberg got his start in Yiddish theater. He then became one of Hollywood's most popular character actors of the 1930s. Robinson often played gangsters (Mugsy) and spoke with a distinctive brogue (Wiggum).

    That's right, an iconic cartoon criminal and an iconic cartoon cop are based on a Jew.

    Of course, they are both iconic for their buffoonery...

    Such legacy is better than none?

    Verdict: Jew.
