The Met, Racism and Islamophobia

The Metropolitan Police Service has a long, murky and varied history when it comes to institutionalized racism and police brutality. Victims of this state-sanctioned criminality tend to be members of the black, minority and ethnic communities. The response to this issue came to prominence in the 1950s – 80s in the form of both peaceful […]

Westboro Baptist Church

The Westboro Baptist Church are a deeply homophobic organisation based in Kansas, USA. Their primary slogan is ‘God Hates Fags’ (which is an offensive term for a homosexual) and their modus operendi mainly involves picketing the funerals of high profile individuals with placards proclaiming their extremist views. They make no distinction between funerals of LGBT […]

I’m Right Wing but not a Hater

At Resisting Hate we get a lot of criticism that we only focus on hate from the right wing and we have a strong left wing bias. This is probably true but it is important to look at balanced views as at best we can learn from other people and at least we can start […]

Stop Treating the Working Class as Racists

At Resisting Hate we are very accustomed to discussing ‘isms’ and ‘phobias.’ Combating racism, homophobia and religious discrimination is a big part of what we do. But recently the prejudice we are seeing online has exposed a new tactic to divide our country and one which perhaps has the potential to do more damage than […]

Chronic Illness and American Healthcare Policy

As healthcare care costs climbed exponentially in the 1980’s, so did the cost of health insurance plans. As a result, employers began to enroll their employees in managed care plans and many Americans were forced to leave their traditional indemnity plans. With the advent of the health maintenance organization (HMO) there is now a financial […]

The Scale of Casual Racism

I’m here to fight the extremism, because it’s filthy, hateful and unbelievably evil in a way which I have never quite realised before (becoming involved with Resisting Hate). And yes, it’s immensely dangerous, it risks contagion and am I am totally committed. But thankfully support for far right extremism isn’t huge so we have every […]

Resisting Hate view on Robinson’s Suspension

It is no secret that Resisting Hate wanted Tommy Robinson suspended from Twitter. It is no secret that we have encouraged and organised our members to report his hate tweets. It is no secret that only last week we sent an email to 700 people asking them to report a tweet that we believed constituted […]

Cambridge Analytica, A Beginner’s Guide

Cambridge Analytica Many people have been hearing the name Cambridge Analytica for the first time recently, following the revelation that they obtained the personal information of around 50 million people by abusing Facebook’s lax permissions system. I first heard of the company about a year ago, after reading an article by Carole Cadwalladr in the […]

Britain First’s Followers Troll Resisting Hate

Since we reported the demise of the two million strong racist Britain First Facebook page we have been innundated with far right whiners having a cry in our inbox. These fascist knuckle draggers barely manage to put together a coherent sentence but the general gist is that they are pretty cross that Facebook no longer […]

Islam from a Muslim

Thank you to a Resisting Hate member who has taken the time to write this post about the true nature of Islam and why it is never compatiable with terrorism. Islam is the world’s second largest religion yet it is also one of the most misunderstood. For various reasons – be they political, economic, biased […]
