The fact that, within the last six months, a good number of Sinn Fein members have jumped ship is an indication that all is not so good within their organization. As for their bad mouthing of other Irish Republicans – shame on them. They come here to the USA and they blow smoke and placate Irish-Americans and then go home and do just the opposite. They have been doing that since 1994 and sadly enough, most Irish-Americans just take them at face value and don’t do their homework. Kudos’ to Ms. O’Brien for her courage to address such issues with Mr. McGuinness. We should all take her advice and use the Internet to search out all Irish Republican sites/blogs to find out what is really going on behind the scenes as well as to realize that some of the “micro-groups” McGuinness continues to bad mouth, in fact do have support and that support is growing.
