Anonymous Haters and Trolls on Social Media

In a heated exchange with the leader of an online hate group several years ago I scorned his comment that “The wars of the future would be fought on social media.” But these days I am not so certain he wasn’t being uncharacteristically prophetic. Social media is proving to be a fertile ground for anonymous […]

21,500 Reasons Not To Vote Conservative

When atrocity happens right in the middle of an election campaign it is a knee jerk reaction for some to say that the event should be referenced by neither party and that, out of respect, for the victims no attempt to make political capital should be undertaken. While I applaud the humanity of respecting the […]

The Comfort of Spirituality

Guest article from a Pagan – Thank you to Brigantia for sharing these beautiful words with us. After a day scouring the news for information, hoping beyond hope that this child is found or another gets home safe as more and more parents send out appeals for their missing children, I am sat in my […]

Tragedy Is Not A Free Pass To Spout Hate

For those who seem to have forgotten this critical point within the first few hours of the news breaking of the atrocity in Manchester late Monday night I will offer a reminder to jog your memory. Children died. The point needs repeating. Children died. Yet since the news broke social media has been flooded with far […]

The Issue of Weight Hate

As co founder of anti hate group Resisting Hate and particularly as the non anonymous member of the group it is no secret that I receive a good deal of hate mail. But although I had anticipated a high level of venom and vitriol prior to us establishing our group, the negative responses I get […]

Britain First Using Lee Rigby To Spread Hate

Britain First’s latest stunt has really frustrated me for a number of reasons: 1. Lee Rigby’s mother has already said on several different occasions that she does not want Britain First and Lee Rigby to be associated or for them to use him for their own political ends 2. No one knows who did it. It could […]

Threats from Far Right Haters

Updated 17.12.2017 As one of the founders of Resisting Hate I receive numerous threats, death threats and abusive messages daily. I publish these occasionally as a reminder of the kind of people the haters Resisting Hate are. These are the kind of people we oppose. This is why we founded Resisting Hate…   Roanna Carleton-TaylorRoanna […]

Acceptance And Understanding

As a co founder of anti hate group Resisting Hate I encounter prejudice every day. Social media is rife with bigotry toward Muslims, Jews, the LGBT community, People of colour, women and indeed just about every demographic and community in the country. It is important to be clear that the peaceable majority of people, both […]

Robinson and McLoughlin’s ‘Quran’

  If you wanted to read a layman’s guide to the Quran chances are you would expect that guide to be written by a knowledgable Muslim scholar or Imam, somebody with a good understanding and personal experience of the faith. You would perhaps be as sceptical as we are to hear of a book entitled ‘Muhammad’s […]

Katie Hopkins Your Hate Has Gone Too Far

Accustomed as I am to reading the attention seeking articles and tweets from Katie Hopkins with a sharp intake of breath, her online antics this week have taken me even closer to an apoplectic asthma attack than usual. Few of you will need reminding of the tweet I am referring to: It is important to […]

LGBT “P” Is Not Genuine

It has come to our attention recently that a group of people are using social media to try and undermine the LGBT movement by claiming to be part of a wider “LGBTP” group. The P (they claim) stands for Paedophilia and the group put out messages campaigning for the ‘rights of paedophiles to find love […]
