This middle school teacher promoted white nationalism, using a secret alias on Twitter as well as a podcast. An investigation by the Huffington Post discovered that 25-year-old Dayanna Volitish has been leading a double life. She hosted a white nationalist podcast under the name Tiana Dalichov and managed various social media accounts where she shared racist and extreme views.
She has since deleted her social media accounts but one of its tweets stated, “White privilege? Prove to me that it exists. Show me statistics that proves whites benefit economically SOLEY because of their race.”
Volitich is a Social Studies teacher at Crystal River Middle School in Florida. She recently launched her own podcast called “Unapologetic,” while using her alias social platforms to retweet neo-Nazis and white supremacists. After reports of Volitech’s racist remarks emerged, the school district launched an investigation and removed her from the classroom.
Volitich has since told local news outlets that it was all satire stating, “None of the statements released about my being a white nationalist of white supremacist have any truth to them, nor are my political beliefs injected into my teaching of social studies curriculum. I employed political satire and exaggeration, mainly to the end of attracting listeners and followers, and generating conversation about the content discussed between myself and guest.”
