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 […]

Resisting Hate Interview Tell Mama UK

As a group who strongly support the excellent pro diversity and support work of Tell Mama UK we were delighted to have the opportunity to interview founder Fiyaz Mughal. In addition to his work at Tell Mama UK Mr Mughal is also the founder of Faith Matters and on the board of the Holocaust Memorial Day […]

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 2016 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 […]

Leap In Hate Crime Post Brexit

In order to understand and ultimately prevent the behaviours that cause divisions in our society it is sometimes necessary to look at how those behaviours evolved and why some people in our communities behave the way they do. The trigger for the recent revival of racism, Islamophobia and prejudice in the UK was the Brexit […]

Britain First Are Not Christian

Now to be fair, neither am I. But way back in my university days I specialised in religious philosophy and made a point of reading the holy books of most mainstream religions. Naturally this included the Bible. So when I first came across the bunch of clowns that is Britain First I was pretty dumbfounded […]

Alison Chabloz

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 […]

The Anonymous Mr Bond

As, despite all his efforts, Bond from Bluehand still remains largely unknown it seems apposite for our group to introduce the growing Resisting Hate membership to the man whose online hate speech inspired Resisting Hate to form in the first place. Having checked the libel laws it seems fairly safe to express an opinion on […]

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 […]
