Britain First – Over and Out

Ever since the US President Donald Trump retweeted fake news posted by deputy leader Jayda Fransen, Britain First have been receiving a lot of media interest. They have also experienced a backlash from UK political figures including Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. The media are giving them a lot of attention, but not for the wrong […]

When Did We Learn To Hate Like This?

Piece written by one of our members I was talking to my friends at Resisting Hate about contributing to their blog. I felt this piece that I wrote earlier in the year might be a good addition to the website. I read through it again today and it finally hit me (forgive my old brain) […]

The Hopkins Hate Archive

We have put together a collection of the worst of Katie Hopkins tweets in an archive to support our campaign to remove her platforms on social media. We will regularly update. RoannaRoanna is one of the founder members of Resisting Hate. She is the author of the majority of our articles, and also publishes a […]

Why we do still need to ‘humanise’ Muslims

There was an interesting article published by Shaista Aziz yesterday in the Guardian posing the question: Why as a society do we need to humanise Muslims?  She asks what specific purpose this is intended to serve and suggests (with much eloquence) that the attempts to humanise Muslims create divisions within the Islamic community. Aziz explains […]

An A – Z of Terfs. Exploding some Transsexual myths

Kindly published with permission from the author Andie, a good friend to Resisting Hate. Her blog can be read here. Since joining Twitter two years ago, I’ve had to put up with all kinds of abuse from TERFs – Trans-Exclusionary so-called Feminists. So I thought I’d write an A-to-Z of the nonsense they repeat day […]

Resisting Hate – A Year Down the Line

Resisting Hate – Just ordinary people doing what’s right. As most of our readers and supporters will know – Resisting Hate started out in 2016 as an online protest group in response to Islamophobic Twitter hate group Bluehand. We began as a parody organisation, intentionally copying the #Bluehand branding to cause confusion and to disrupt […]

When is Enough Enough?

These days we see a lot of emphasis put on differences; celebrating them, not judging others based on them, and accepting them. But when are differences just insurmountable? Personally, I enjoy hearing opinions that differ from my own. I find it helps me to grow as a person to have other people’s opinions to compare […]

Rape and Death Threats Against a Resisting Hate Founder

This threat was posted this week as a clear incitement to violence toward myself. Twitter would not take the tweet down until I had provided them a copy of my driving license. Twitter said the account had not broken Terms of Service and refused to suspend it. RoannaRoanna is one of the founder members of […]

Twitter – The Promises, the Lies and the 18th December

Much has been written about the problems of hate speech on social media and the concern that high profile mainstream platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have been hijacked by far right haters pushing an extremist agenda. Twitter in particular has acknowledged there is a problem relating to the use of its platform for organised […]

Robert Spencer – Banned in the UK

Robert Spencer is the Islamophobic founder of blog site Jihad Watch, described by Wikipedia as ‘one of the main homes of the counter jihad movement on the net’ but described by pretty much everybody else as a radical hate site promoting discrimination and prejudice toward Muslims. Spencer has fostered an academic career off the back […]

Why the Far Right are wrong about Sexual Assault Statistics

This is probably the toughest and most hard hitting article I have ever or ever will write. But it needs to be written. There is a lot of exposure within the media, not just over here in the UK, but also across the ocean in the USA regarding the inhuman crimes of rape, child grooming […]

Climate Change, Does It Really Matter?

There are some (quite a few in fact) who are prepared to deny that the climate of our planet is changing. Another group of people accept that while global warming is happening, it’s nothing to do with human activity, and is in fact just part of a natural cycling process of equilibrium, and that the […]
