Who speaks for Irish America?
Vargo tries to have it both ways. She used Irish America at the beginning to get her funding, then has spent the last few years denigrating it to anyone who will listen.
This peaked when Vargo stated in another Irish Times article last year that helping Irish undocumented earn legal status here was like “putting lipstick on a pig.”
Her and neo-Unionist Stanage are now the two who want to define Irish America to the toffee nose crowd back at the Irish Times. God help us is all I can say.
