*A reveal uncovered by a national pub suggests this white middle school social studies teacher has been doing double-duty. Behind closed doors, under the name “Tiana Dalichov,” this educator secretly hosts a white nationalist podcast called Unapologetic, where she brags about fulfilling her racist agenda in the classroom.
Dayanna Volitich, her true name, boasts in one snippet from the podcast obtained by HuffPost, “I get to talk about topics that people don’t like to talk about. They don’t want to be seen as a bigot, racist, whatever you want to call it. I honestly don’t care.”
According to HuffPost, the podcasts (embedded on their site) reveal that Volitich doesn’t give a damn about being seen as a bigot—in fact, she appears to revel in it with her wildly racist, debunked beliefs.
From the HuffPost:
In her most recent podcast on Feb. 26, a guest railed against diversity in schools, dismissing the idea that “a kid from Nigeria and a kid who came from Sweden are supposed to learn exactly the same” and have the “same IQ.” Volitich enthusiastically agreed with the guest and went on to argue that “science” has proven that certain races are smarter than others.”
I can only imagine the conviction upon which she said this. If “science” did “prove” such a thing, we can be assured the “scientist” behind it looked more like her than us.
Later in the episode, according to HuffPost, Volitich agreed that white supremacists need to infiltrate schools.
“They don’t have to be vocal about their views, but get in there!” her guest said. “Be more covert and just start taking over those places.”
“Right,” Volitich said. “I’m absolutely one of them.”
I recall a post I saw years ago, where the comment reminded us that these racists are many of our teachers, doctors, lawyers, firefighters, etc. We know they’re out there, but catching them in the moment is always a special treat.
One of Dalichov’s tweets.
HuffPost actually pieced together evidence that proved “Tiana Dalichov” and Dayanna Volitich was one in the same person by a series of coincidences.
“Dalichov” listed her home as Crystal River, which matches public records for Volitich’s home. “Dalichov” has shared on her podcast she’s a school teacher who has been teaching at her current school for one year. The same was true for Volitich and her position at Crystal River. “Dalichov” tweeted that she was 25-years-old, which is Volitich’s age. And after the HuffPost reached out to the Citrus County School District about Volitich, “Dalichov” mentioned on her Twitter account that she would be going dark for a while.
But perhaps the clearest evidence is that Volitich, presumably part of the race that has higher IQs than others, posted an actual picture of herself as the avatar for her “Dalichov” Twitter account.
As the HuffPost notes, not only does it appear to be the same person, Volitich is wearing the same earrings in her Twitter photo as she is in the Crystal River Middle School website.
We already know these people aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed.
in a WFTS-TV Tampa Bay article published from the far-right news site, Halsey News under the headline “Tiana Dalichov: White Privilege Challenge.” Dalichov actually put forth a white privilege challenge and offered anyone fulfilling it $100.
From one of her podcasts (via WFTS-Tampa Bay) Dalichov boasted on how she convinced the students to help her cover up what she was teaching them:
“I told the kids that. I said guys when they are in here I’m going to be different than I usually am. I just don’t want you to be shocked, I want you to play along and they’re like OK. OK,” she said in the podcast.
