Prevent – Get The Statistics Out There

The government’s counter terrorism Prevent strategy has generated a good deal of controversy in the twelve years since it was first launched. Ostensibly a program that aims to target radicalisation and to help people unwittingly drawn into terrorism it has come under a lot of fire both from Muslims and Non Muslims for being focused […]

A Well-Travelled Syrian?

I was on Twitter this evening (yes, it happens sometimes!) and happened across the following tweet. The Bluehand logo, for readers who are unaware, is a warning sign that the account is run by a racist idiot. Compare the size of your family to this one. Child benefit should only be paid for the frist […]

On The Road To Führerprinzip

  On this day in 1933, the New York Times ran the above on their front page telling the story about a little man who was born in Austria, who became Chancellor of Germany. Little did anyone know at that point that the centrists who held the balance of power would shortly become the minority and […]

Banning Muslims On Holocaust day

I found it incredible that on a day intended to think about the holocaust, that Trump didn’t know his own history enough to see that not only was his anti-immigration Executive Order a bad thing to do, but to do it 2 days before Holocaust Memorial Day was plain thoughtless. Now, for those of you […]

Defending The Right To A Faith

As someone who believes in the importance of standing up for the rights of religions to observe and practise their different faiths I often get asked when I am planning to convert to a religion different to my own. It rather amuses me how many people (my oldest friend included) secretly expect me to convert […]

Halal and Kosher – Facts not Prejudice

Not being a reader of the Daily Mail their article on the subject of Halal slaughter published on the 24 October would have normally gone unnoticed. However when it was brought to my attention on Twitter I decided to have a closer look at some of the claims made by the Mail and explore some […]

Alison Chabloz and her hate

Resisting Hate first came across the notorious Anti Semite Alison Chabloz in 2015. Like many anti hate groups we have felt it prudent to keep an eye on a woman who seems so relentlessly determined to slander the memory of the millions of innocents slaughtered by the Nazis in the Second World War. For Ms Chabloz […]

Why Resisting Hate Don’t Take Sides

Quite a lot of things frustrate me about running an anti hate group – the venomous people we interact with day in day out, the pitiful logic employed by the far right and the inability of racists to express themselves beyond memes and the block button to name just a few. However, nothing frustrates me […]

Get Your Burkinis On Ladies!

For any individual who hasn’t spent the last week and a half holidaying in a cave, the issue of France and the burkini ban will have turned up at some point in their newspaper or social media feed. The headline image of four armed French policemen forcing a Muslim lady to remove layers of clothing […]

Whereof One Cannot Speak…

This famous quotation from Wittgenstein is usually interpreted as being an indictment on the inability of language to express complex truths. The implication being that if we do not have the necessary words we should refrain from the attempt. I’m stretching the scope of the quote slightly here to extend to the idea that in […]
