WSM - anarcho apologists?

Among the many criticisms of their group are the charges that they are associated with violence and subversion, that they promote law-breaking and squatting, that they alienate moderate elements, and that they are apologists for the murders of previous anarchist generations.

Apart from the last point, they sound pretty good to me!

absolute bollox in what you write about W.S. M. xeirecorex, I will openly admit I am a cynic when it comes to W.S.M. I believe that they are middle class, and see themselves as the only anarchists activists in Ireland

Don't think xeirecorex actually wrote that Con but as far as criticisms go its preety crap - looks like it was wrote just for the sake of having something to say. I'm sure if someone had knew what they were talking about they could have produced some criticisms with a little more substance.

It is from the politics.ie wiki which is run by some right-wing freedom instituter types. This just looks like whoever wrote it didn't have a clue and was looking for something that sounded vaguely plausible.

I'm definitely an apologist for the 'murders' of previous generations of anarchists anyway - about the only bit that's accurate! Bring back church burnings!

ah c'mon, strip them of all the iconography and gold (so they all look a bit more Presbyterian) and even rerun the executions by firing squad of christ on the cross - but church burnings? Turn them into collectivised hospitals, universities of the people, storage. Burning thems a waste.
