Do The Far Right Radicalise People?

The one question we’re all asking given the attacks on Mosques and all the social media posts describing Muslims as ‘evil’. We must ask ourselves the key question of whether the far-right is radicalising people. Even before I joined Resisting Hate I saw countless social media posts that were all ‘Islam this, Islam that’, ‘Muslims […]

Why Am I Resisting Hate?

A very honest account from one of our members about their individual journey to Resisting Hate. Firstly, a confession. I used to be a casual Islamaphobe. I’d have voted yes to ban the hijab. I used to ‘like’ and ‘share’ Biffer memes – because I was ignorant. Because of the people I was friends with, […]

Toni Bugle – MARIAS

Several of our readers are aware of Toni Bugle and a couple of people have asked us to to do a piece on her activity for ‘MARIAS’. Toni runs a group called MARIAS…..or “Mothers Against Radical Islam And Sharia”. While the first part of the title sounds laudable (after all, who wouldn’t be against extremism) […]

A Letter to Jayda From A Muslim RH Member

One of our Muslim membes writes an open letter to Jayda Fransen discussing matters of faith. Dear Jayda, I am proudly and unapologetically a Muslim. I’m no hate-driven, fear-injecting bigot like you and I am thankful for that. Unlike you, I actually love Jesus Christ, upon whom be peace.  Moreover, I genuinely follow his teachings […]

A Place For Everything, Everything In Its place

We’ve written before about “Robinson” and “McLoughlin’s” book Mohammed’s Koran: Why Muslims Kill for Islam, so this will be a very brief post. I was thinking about what they’d done, which is essentially to rewrite their own version of the Koran, supposedly in chronological order. They say that read this way the book inspires people […]

The Only ‘Hoax’ is Your Anti Hate Policies Twitter

Yesterday was Holocaust Memorial day. A sombre occasion to remember the millions of Jews and other persecuted individuals who were savagely murdered in the Nazi death camps. To anyone with an ounce of humanity the atrocities of the Holocaust remain one of the greatest stains on the human soul. It stands as an example of […]

Learning From The Video Game ‘Assassin’s Creed’

It is true that we can learn a lot from the video game series Assassin’s Creed; we share many similarities with the series even if many do not know why, or are even unaware of it. Whilst we don’t and never will use violence, the characters depicted within the games do but for very different […]

There Is No Such Thing as a ‘Happy Pill’

My hopes of unbiased reporting without a bigoted agenda are never high when reading an article on the Mail Online but I was even more annoyed than usual when reading their article on the subject of mental health published 29 December 2017. It is hard to say what irritated me the most – the use […]

Not All Opinions Are Equal

“All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.” – Douglas Adams 2016 and 2017 brought with them a shift in attitudes toward the concept of ‘expertise’ on both sides of the Atlantic. In Britain, Justice Secretary Michael Gove (defending Brexit) […]

DJD – Mass produced Anti Semitism

At Resisting Hate we have been watching (for some time) an account titled ‘DieJewDie’ on Twitter. This account has gone through numerous incarnations posting more and more vile anti semitism and hate every day. It openly acknowledged earlier today it has been suspended four times already since the start of the day and regularly boasts […]

Defeating Trumpism with Faith

A faith based article written by a guest writer Past U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower once said: “A people that value privileges above principles, soon lose both.” It is true, indeed, that we have become a people seeking progression, however, we are a divided people; an occupied people. Notwithstanding Eisenhower’s comment and, apart from the fact […]
