Anne Marie Waters – Suspended for Hate on Twitter

It is gratifying to know that even though Twitter get it wrong a lot of the time they are occasionally capable of making good decisions. Last night the accounts of Anne Marie Waters and Shazia Hobbs, both well known supporters of hate and Islamophobia were suspended from Twitter for hate speech. Of course at Resisting […]

Milo – Dangerous because Stupid

In response to a request from a journalist with regard to his favourite item on a restaurant menu, Milo Yiannapolous answered with this reply: “I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight.” This idiocy went viral and was quickly exposed to a large (mostly disgusted) audience.   Two days […]

David Vance – In his Own Words

We could write a long article about David Vance but to be honest his posts speak for themselves. However I’ll provide a little background first. David Vance ran for political office as the East Belfast candidate of Traditional Unionist Voice party in Northern Ireland in 2010. He achieved 1856 votes which was less than 6% […]

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

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 […]

Christian Bell – Twitter Nazi

Christian Bell is originally from Kirkby in Merseyside and now lives in Liverpool, going by the Twitter handle @BasedBritish1 (aka Based British.) He was a student of film studies and has been a cinema staff worker for the past 6 years. The general theme of all his threads are anti-Semitic, blaming the Jews for all […]

A Day of Freedom* *(Hate)

Today convicted fraudster Stephen Yaxley-Lennon and some of his far right friends took to the streets of Whitehall, London in an event billed as a #DayForFreedom. The catalyst for the event was the suspending of Robinson’s Twitter account from the social media platform (an incident that Resisting Hate had a bit of a hand in…). […]

Haters fall for #ImWithTWAT Hashtag Trick

It is not often we get a really good laugh in the world of anti hate activism. Being bombarded with the kind of hate and rubbish we see on a daily basis can be a gruelling grind. So when a bit of light hearted relief comes our way we make the most of it. Particularly […]

‘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 […]

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 […]

Katie Hopkins mocks CSE survivors

Cannot believe that this kind of tweet is deemed acceptable by Twitter. Our entire network will be reporting this one and that is a lot of people. This is blatantly mocking the survivors of child sex exploitation. Sickening. If you are serious about ridding social media of hate Twitter then this vile woman needs to […]

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 […]
