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 […]

RH Twitter Suspension

For some time Resisting Hate have been targeted by angry far right mobs who object to our views and our determination to remove hate speech from Twitter. Our main account was suspended for posting this meme which Twitter deemed to be abusive. We then lost our back up and my personal account due to running […]

Get These Far Right Extremists Off Their Online Platforms

This week it was publicly acknowledged at the highest level of British policing that as a country we have a serious problem with far right radicalisation and the threat of far right terrorism. There have been four far right terrorist attacks foiled by the police in the UK in 2017 alone. Most of the extremism […]

The Only ‘Hoax’ is Your Anti Hate Policies Twitter

Yesterday was Holocaust Memorial day. A sombre occasion to remember the millions of Jews and other persecuted individuals who were savagely murdered in the Nazi death camps. To anyone with an ounce of humanity the atrocities of the Holocaust remain one of the greatest stains on the human soul. It stands as an example of […]

DJD – Mass produced Anti Semitism

At Resisting Hate we have been watching (for some time) an account titled ‘DieJewDie’ on Twitter. This account has gone through numerous incarnations posting more and more vile anti semitism and hate every day. It openly acknowledged earlier today it has been suspended four times already since the start of the day and regularly boasts […]

Rape and Death Threats Against a Resisting Hate Founder

This threat was posted this week as a clear incitement to violence toward myself. Twitter would not take the tweet down until I had provided them a copy of my driving license. Twitter said the account had not broken Terms of Service and refused to suspend it. RoannaRoanna is one of the founder members of […]

Twitter – The Promises, the Lies and the 18th December

Much has been written about the problems of hate speech on social media and the concern that high profile mainstream platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have been hijacked by far right haters pushing an extremist agenda. Twitter in particular has acknowledged there is a problem relating to the use of its platform for organised […]

The Myths about Poppies and Muslims

We all know what the Poppy represents. Some choose to wear one, some do not. There is no shame in not wearing one. It is a matter of personal choice. Speaking personally, I choose to wear a Poppy every year. I do this to remember all those who fell in the Great Wars and those […]

Bluehand Hater Suspended

With the suspension of @GSDDogLover from Twitter it seems like a good time to shed further light on Bluehand and their desperate attempts to claim credibility as a bastion of righteousness standing against the ills of the world. In typical Bluehand fashion, following the suspension of this most loathsome account they immediately tried to manifest […]

Cheerleaders of Terror

 Another deadly, despicable terrorist attack takes place with Islamic extremist terror organisation ISIS the main suspects and the worldwide far right cannot hide their celebrations. Donald Trump is at his most shaky since his election as media attention is switched from the Trump administration’s alleged collusion with Russia towards Muslim bans and “extreme vetting”. Whilst 99.99% […]

Disharmony in 140 characters

Cliché after cliché. Reverse racism was today’s. Was everyone brainwashed? Is it racist for a black woman, that has suffered exclusion, name-calling, and online abuse, to remark that Britain has a problem with racism? Is it acceptable, to sit in a room, in Britain, complaining about people’s racism against white folk? Did India’s caste system […]

Anonymous Haters and Trolls on Social Media

In a heated exchange with the leader of an online hate group several years ago I scorned his comment that “The wars of the future would be fought on social media.” But these days I am not so certain he wasn’t being uncharacteristically prophetic. Social media is proving to be a fertile ground for anonymous […]
