GUEST OPINION: It is Now Chic to Hate Whitey

January 7, 2022 Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the latest cultural fashion: It has been chic for some time to say things about white people that if said about blacks would be branded racist. Now it is in vogue like never before. The irony is that the racist comments are being said by those who consider themselves to be anti-racist. They are not—they are every bit as racist as George Wallace was. To top things off, many round out their bigotry by making anti-Christian and sexist remarks. In short, they have a special...

Guest Opinion: de Blasio And Those Who Elected Him Ruined New York City

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on outgoing New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio: New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s last day in office is New Years Eve. What he has done to the world’s greatest city is incalculable: he has been an unmitigated disaster. He is often compared to Mayor David Dinkins, but the comparison is unfair. While Dinkins did great damage, which was undone by Rudy Giuliani, he was merely incompetent. De Blasio’s war on New York City was deliberate, a clear example of what happens when a Marxist takes over. New... Read more →

By Mark Zimmaro - November 18, 2021 As the final seconds ticked down on the 2021 field hockey season, Cecilia Mendez hustled even harder.

The Best Public High School in Pennsylvania IS...

Gloucestercitynews.net graphics The quality of American public schools can vary widely between states, cities, and even districts. Not all schools are able to provide students with the same level of education, access to extracurriculars, counseling, or college preparation. While each public school faces its own unique challenges, each state has one public school that stands out as the very best. The best public high schools tend to be in relatively affluent areas, where incomes are well above the U.S. median household income of $62,843. A wealthier tax base for a school district means that schools have more funding to hire... Read more →

GUEST OPINION: Madness In The Schools ...What Is Happening In The Classroom

Catholic League president Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor The new school year is off to a wild start. Perversion, anti-Americanism, and racism are being taught in some schools, and it's happening at all levels, from K-graduate school.
