Bloodied and bashed, an image of LGBT campaigner Izzy Kamikaze being attacked for voicing her opposition to anti-face mask demonstrators last weekend in the capital went viral. The gay rights activist was beaten around the head with a wooden pole draped in a tricolour by factions of the extremist far right. Suddenly, the general public and mainstream media sat up and paid attention. Even Taoiseach Micheál Martin felt compelled to criticise the violent scenes. Officers from the Special Detective Unit (SDU), which monitors the activities of terrorists and violent extremists, are now looking with “renewed interest” at far-right extremists active in Ireland.
