The New York Times, hardly a neutral, fair or balanced news source, published a piece about how there is an anti-Trump rally by an Irish parliamentary member in New York City. Here’s what they had to say about the event:
…there will be an anti-Trump immigrant solidarity event in New York organized by Aodhan O’Riordain, an Irish senator who made headlines last year when he called the newly elected Donald J. Trump a “fascist” during a speech in Parliament.
The event, called an “Irish Stand,” will denounce the new administration, its immigration policies and its many Irish-American members, including Vice President Mike Pence and Mr. Trump’s chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon.
The dueling events highlight a political divide in Irish America, which includes more than 33 million people, and between Irish America and Ireland itself, an increasingly liberal country of about five million people. Mr. Trump is deeply unpopular there, but Irish-American leaders said he might have drawn just under half of the Irish-American vote, part of a decades-long drift to the right by a once solidly Democratic bloc.
