‘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 […]

Chronic Illness and American Healthcare Policy

As healthcare care costs climbed exponentially in the 1980’s, so did the cost of health insurance plans. As a result, employers began to enroll their employees in managed care plans and many Americans were forced to leave their traditional indemnity plans. With the advent of the health maintenance organization (HMO) there is now a financial […]

The Scale of Casual Racism

I’m here to fight the extremism, because it’s filthy, hateful and unbelievably evil in a way which I have never quite realised before (becoming involved with Resisting Hate). And yes, it’s immensely dangerous, it risks contagion and am I am totally committed. But thankfully support for far right extremism isn’t huge so we have every […]

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 […]

The Case of the ‘Nazi’ pug

The case of the Nazi pug has inspired a lot of constructive debate in Resisting Hate. I’ll be honest, I don’t think jokes are hate speech. I think the wording used to get the dog to do the Nazi salute was offensive and could have been worded in a way that made the same joke […]

March for our Lives

Few things give me more hope for the future than our young people of today. Too often teenagers are dismissed for being too young to have an opinion and not having enough life experience to know what they are talking about. Well the teenagers and young people in America who stood up to protest the […]

Petition against Hopkins gets Legs

At Resisting Hate we’ve tried a few petitions to get the hater that is Hopkins off Twitter. But her latest tweet seems to have captured public anger and finally people are motivated to do something about the filth this woman puts onto Twitter. This latest tweet about eleven year old girls from Telford (Kids!) is […]

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 […]

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 […]

Robinson Tells Followers to Punch People

Caught on camera (without his knowledge) we see the convicted fraudster Stephen Yaxley-Lennon that he takes such pains to hide from his gullible supporters… Robinson: They got all that [an objector being sworn at by Robinson’s staff] on camera. Robinson: Stay calm all the time. If the camera’s not there fucking punch the geezer round […]

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 […]
