Freedom of Speech is a Fantasy

Absolute freedom of speech doesn’t exist and it never will. A world of free speech would soon descend into chaos and anarchy. We are bound by social convention, the law and an awareness of public safety and most of us follow both these actual and implied rules on a subconscious level on a daily basis. […]

Radicalised Facebook Followers

The following screenshots are all genuine examples of comments on far right individual and group pages on Facebook. This is why we object to hate speech.

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 […]

Britain First’s Followers Troll Resisting Hate

Since we reported the demise of the two million strong racist Britain First Facebook page we have been innundated with far right whiners having a cry in our inbox. These fascist knuckle draggers barely manage to put together a coherent sentence but the general gist is that they are pretty cross that Facebook no longer […]

Britain First Banned from Facebook

Finally!! Today Facebook bowed to pressure from anti hate organisations and deleted the page of Britain First. This anti Muslim hate page had amassed over 2 million followers (most of whom had been duped into following the page via click bait tactics).

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.

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) […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Myths about Poppies and Muslims

We all know what the Poppy represents. Some choose to wear one, some do not. There is no shame in not wearing one. It is a matter of personal choice. Speaking personally, I choose to wear a Poppy every year. I do this to remember all those who fell in the Great Wars and those […]

Censor The Haters, Not Those Who Fight Hate!

Article written by Resisting Hate member The Wanderer Censorship is not limited to keeping something from being spoken. The definition also stretches to include writing and exposing the truth.

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 […]
