Twitter Suspension

For some time Resisting Hate have been targeted by angry far right mobs who object to our views and our determination to remove hate speech from Twitter. Our main account was suspended for posting this meme which Twitter deemed to be abusive. We then lost our back up and my personal account due to running […]

The Resistance and Trump

Written by a guest writer for Resisting Hate It’s a tough balancing act to not allow ‘perfect’ to be the enemy of the ‘good’. It’s something I personally struggle with, but an approach that I like to apply when trying to think about solutions is to set up a sort of syllogism: Let’s say we […]

Get These Far Right Extremists Off Their Online Platforms

This week it was publicly acknowledged at the highest level of British policing that as a country we have a serious problem with far right radicalisation and the threat of far right terrorism. There have been four far right terrorist attacks foiled by the police in the UK in 2017 alone. Most of the extremism […]

Robinson – Bullying Thug and Hate Preacher

Robinson’s history as a far right extremist hate preacher goes back a long way. Prior to his period as leader of the EDL Robinson was a member of the BNP (a far right hate group with political aspirations.) During this period he spent time in prison for assaulting a police officer. In April 2005 he […]

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 […]

Resisting Hate – Some Clarity

I believe it is important to provide some clarity around some of the issues that have been raised this week: Resisting Hate did not publish the private address of Tommy Robinson nor any of the addresses wrongly assumed to be Robinson. The individual who did has publicly confirmed she is not associated with our group. […]

Resisting Hate – Our Beliefs and Values

As Resisting Hate have grown as a group and a community we have started to receive a lot more coverage. Some of this has been very positive, some not so positive and some downright libellous. But one thing it has shown us is that it is important to be transparent and  consistent with the messages […]
