A racist white teacher has bragged on a public podcast about being a racist and promoting others to infiltrate the public school system to spread nationalist rhetoric.

Dayanna Volitich teaches social studies at Crystal River, Florida she admitted to lying to administrators about her Neo Nazi beliefs and for interjecting her ideology covertly. When parents complained to the schools principal about how she dropped her ideology on unsuspecting students the 25 year old lied. During her podcast she said of Muslims they should be “eradicated from the face of the earth.”

The Citrus County School District Superintendent said in a statement Volitich had been fired as of last week. The Human Resources department was notified and an investigation was initiated immediately. She was then removed from the classroom and the investigation was initiated.

The racial make up of the city according to the 2010 census, 83.4 % white and 7.4 % black. I guess its easy to be a bully under these circumstances.

After being identified, she claimed the podcast was about satire and not meant to be taken literally. She said to a local news station, “None of the statements released about my being a white nationalist or white supremacist have any truth to them, nor are my political beliefs injected into my teaching of social studies curriculum. While operating under the Russian pseudonym ‘Tiana Dalichov’ on social media and the Unapologetic Podcast, 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 my guests.”

She then said that her views as Tiana Dalichov did not effect her professional career. The racists teacher espoused as an adult her decisions are her own and her family has nothing to do wither her social media or podcast accounts. The 25year old then apologized to her family, asking for forgiveness citing it was not her intention to cause them grief while engaging in a hobby on her personal time. No apology was made to the people she attacked or the students she attempted to influence.
