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 […]

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) […]

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 […]
