Why Resisting Hate say NO TO BREXIT

Why Brexit Happened: Anti-Intellectualism and Identity

A guest piece written by Lee Clarke A few days ago I called a taxi to take me home from work. The driver was very friendly and spoke with an accent so, as I am a nerd for different cultures, I asked him where he was from and he told me he came from Turkey. […]

Why Those we Loved Fought in WWII

It has frustrated me for a long time that the far right use their misinterpretation of the motives of the soldiers who fought in WWII to justify the behaviour of thugs and haters today. I am unsure what the contents of their history lessons at school covered but they certainly differed from mine. I frequently […]

I’m Right Wing but not a Hater

At Resisting Hate we get a lot of criticism that we only focus on hate from the right wing and we have a strong left wing bias. This is probably true but it is important to look at balanced views as at best we can learn from other people and at least we can start […]

Stop Treating the Working Class as Racists

At Resisting Hate we are very accustomed to discussing ‘isms’ and ‘phobias.’ Combating racism, homophobia and religious discrimination is a big part of what we do. But recently the prejudice we are seeing online has exposed a new tactic to divide our country and one which perhaps has the potential to do more damage than […]

The Scale of Casual Racism

I’m here to fight the extremism, because it’s filthy, hateful and unbelievably evil in a way which I have never quite realised before (becoming involved with Resisting Hate). And yes, it’s immensely dangerous, it risks contagion and am I am totally committed. But thankfully support for far right extremism isn’t huge so we have every […]

Cambridge Analytica, A Beginner’s Guide

Cambridge Analytica Many people have been hearing the name Cambridge Analytica for the first time recently, following the revelation that they obtained the personal information of around 50 million people by abusing Facebook’s lax permissions system. I first heard of the company about a year ago, after reading an article by Carole Cadwalladr in the […]

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 […]

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) […]

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 […]

Give Our Young People A Voice

The divisions in Britain since the EU referendum a year ago have been written about extensively. Our group Resisting Hate and many others have publicly discussed the increase in racism, in Islamophobia and in Anti Semitism. In particular we have witnessed a surge of hostility to non British nationals. What has not been so well […]
