“They don’t even teach British History in schools anymore….”

Written by guest writer Andy Stevens “The thing is, they don’t even teach British history in schools anymore.” I had this said to me at a show last year. I was there exhibiting and storytelling. I asked why the man who spoke to me thought that. He replied that they couldn’t teach it, because it […]

Lies, Damned Lies and Tommy Robinson

Twitter erupted last night with the enraged tears of the far right as high profile hater convicted fraudster Stephen Yaxley-Lennon was relocated from his current incarceration in Hull to a jail in the Midlands. Although initial leaked info suggested Tommy had been moved to Leicester jail, the current (as yet unconfirmed) belief is that he […]

Prophet Mohammed and Marriage Ages

Articles with a religious focus at Resisting Hate are always written by a practising member of the faith in question so we were delighted to give one of our Muslim members an opportunity to discuss a topic that regularly comes up in debate on social media and which is often used to attack Muslims by […]

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 […]

‘Punish a Muslim Day’ has backfired!

It is hard to imagine what goes through the mind of the kind of person who made up ‘Punish a Muslim Day’. I’m not sure I even want to know what goes on inside their head. But we can guess that whoever did it wanted to cause fear among Muslims and to try and mobilise […]

Islam from a Muslim

Thank you to a Resisting Hate member who has taken the time to write this post about the true nature of Islam and why it is never compatiable with terrorism. Islam is the world’s second largest religion yet it is also one of the most misunderstood. For various reasons – be they political, economic, biased […]

Love a Muslim day!

This has come to our attention from a lot of different sources today although as of yet we are not certain who wrote this inspiring piece. In response to a series of hate leaflets sent to Muslims in several different locations across the country some better hearted individuals have created an alternative to the hateful […]

Why Am I Resisting Hate?

A very honest account from one of our members about their individual journey to Resisting Hate. Firstly, a confession. I used to be a casual Islamaphobe. I’d have voted yes to ban the hijab. I used to ‘like’ and ‘share’ Biffer memes – because I was ignorant. Because of the people I was friends with, […]

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) […]

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) […]
