THE SON of a former Taoiseach has been linked to a right-wing anti-Semitic sect led by a Holocaust denier.
According to extra.ie, Matthew Bruton, son of former Fine Gael leader John Bruton, has ties with a group called SSPX Resistance - an extreme Catholic splinter organisation.
For years, the SSPX Resistance have espoused extreme anti-Jewish, racist and homophobic material online, and are currently under investigation by gardaí for hate speech.
In the last year or so, the group has also branded Covid-19 a hoax, blamed the virus on the Jews and held an exorcism of the Dáil in protest over Government lockdown policies.
At their most extreme, their social media posts have advocated the execution of homosexuals and abortionists.
The group’s global leader, Bishop Richard Williamson, has repeatedly attended events in Ireland at which he has denied the Holocaust.
Williamson has twice been excommunicated by the Vatican and convicted of Holocaust denial in Germany.
Digital evidence has been discovered confirming Matthew Bruton's association with the group, with him appearing on their social media channels for years.
Matthew's father served as Taoiseach for three years between 1994 and 1997.
He presided over a key period in Irish history, leaving office less than a year before the Good Friday Agreement was signed.
