The first was in a tweet on Twitter where I used the term “fuzzy wuzzy” to describe somebody’s feelings. I was thinking cute fluffy bears. It turns out that […]

Racism in 2020

Do you think racism is more of a problem today than it was in the 1980s? I think the racism we are seeing today is very different to the racism of the 1980s. Being labelled a racist has a lot more stigma attached to it than it did 30 years ago and that has made […]

The Beginnings of Resisting Hate

Caolin Robertson – A Liar For All Seasons

Resisting Hate has previously written about Caolan ‘my name is pronounced Kay-Lin’ Robertson, his descent into far right extremism and former employment with Rebel Media and Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, aka Tommy Robinson. Caolan has since fallen from grace with both parties, and indeed much of the far right, due to allegations of fraud, extortion, blackmail and […]

Should We Worry About The Nazi Problem?

Transphobia hit the headlines recently after […]
