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. […]

Amy Mek – The Twitter Mystery

Usually when a Twitter account has a large number of followers it is because they are a high profile individual and frequently seen in the public eye. This rule of thumb is as true for haters as it is for any other Twitter account. Which is why the Twitter account of Amy Mek is such […]

Fighting for the ‘Freedom’ to Hate

For the discerning antifascist liberal, Tommy Robinson’s new pro hate video might just be the funniest thing you have seen in years. He is launching promotion for a ‘Day of Freedom’ planned for 6 May in London and for some reason, known only to himself, he decided to use the theme of duct taping up […]

The Met, Racism and Islamophobia

The Metropolitan Police Service has a long, murky and varied history when it comes to institutionalized racism and police brutality. Victims of this state-sanctioned criminality tend to be members of the black, minority and ethnic communities. The response to this issue came to prominence in the 1950s – 80s in the form of both peaceful […]

Resisting Hate view on Robinson’s Suspension

It is no secret that Resisting Hate wanted Tommy Robinson suspended from Twitter. It is no secret that we have encouraged and organised our members to report his hate tweets. It is no secret that only last week we sent an email to 700 people asking them to report a tweet that we believed constituted […]

This is NOT Palestine

This account > @ThisisPalestine < has come to the attention of Resisting Hate via a number of sources. It has amassed over ten thousand followers and declares itself to be a ‘parody’. Unfortunately for ‘This is Palestine’ the term parody is not a get out clause for posting hate, threats, death threats, islamophobia and antisemitism. This […]

Hate Leaflets Distributed to Incite Islamophobic Hate

It is hard to believe that anybody is so filled with hate that they would go to the time and effort of writing these vile leaflets, getting them printed and distributing them across sections of London. But somebody has. This act of organised hate crime is intended to racialise other extremist far right individuals into […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

When Did We Learn To Hate Like This?

Piece written by one of our members I was talking to my friends at Resisting Hate about contributing to their blog. I felt this piece that I wrote earlier in the year might be a good addition to the website. I read through it again today and it finally hit me (forgive my old brain) […]

The Hopkins Hate Archive

We have put together a collection of the worst of Katie Hopkins tweets in an archive to support our campaign to remove her platforms on social media. We will regularly update. RoannaRoanna is one of the founder members of Resisting Hate. She is the author of the majority of our articles, and also publishes a […]
