On February 26, 2018, a young white supremacist who calls herself Tiana Dalichov interviewed Lana Lokteff on her program, the Unapologetic Podcast. Along with her husband Henrik Palmgren, Lokteff is a host at Red Ice, a far-right, anti-Semitic media outlet recently labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Dalichov and Lokteff spent the majority of the episode criticizing feminism, which they believe is a devious plot to undermine white families. Later on in the program, however, the pair turned their attention to the American educational system.
Dalichov remarked that “things at the college level” are “getting a little bit better” by “shut[ting] down the safe space bullcrap.” Lokteff responded by calling for other white supremacists to infiltrate public schools to push their racist agenda and root out “Marxists.”
“Well that’s why we need more people on our side to do — who would be committed to being teachers,” Lokteff said. “They don’t have to be vocal about their views but get in there! Be more covert and just start taking over those places, I mean that’s what the Left did. [It’s what] a lot of these cultural Marxists and Frankfurt Schoolers did.”
Much to Lokteff’s delight, Dalichov revealed that she is, in fact, a teacher with white nationalist beliefs — as well as a fan of Red Ice. “It’s something that, as a teacher, it’s a tough place to be,” Dalichov complained, adding that teachers like her are “incredibly lucky” to find like-minded co-workers.
“So do you have much freedom as a teacher or is someone always over your back, making sure that you’re staying on point, and teaching certain curriculum?” Lokteff asked. Disturbingly, Dalichov revealed that she plays by the rules when her supervisors are watching, but lets the children know that it’s all an act — a “dog-and-pony show,” as she called it — and asks them to “play along.”
“But, I’m pretty aware — hyper-aware — that they’ll be watching and that they’ll be listening, so I’m getting a little bit more underhanded as to how I deal with it,” she bragged. She claimed that she told her students she would answer their questions with unbiased “facts” — something that is undermined by Dalichov agreeing with a Holocaust denier that there’s “two sides” to every issue.
Shortly after this discussion on “underhanded” teaching methods, Lokteff bemoaned diversity in public schools which, she said, taints the grades of schoolchildren. The Red Ice co-host mocked 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.”
Dalichov agreed, and likewise professed a firm belief that some races are naturally more intelligent than others. She cited a news story about an Asian-American student whose science project concluded that African-Americans have lower IQs than whites or Asians.
She defended the student’s conclusions against accusations of racism. “I was like, ‘This is science though,'” she exclaimed. “This is — so many researchers have already looked into this, and that’s just the way it is. There are races that have higher IQs than others.”
Dalichov has reiterated this point on Twitter, where she talks about the “aggregate difference in IQ between Caucasoids and Negroids.”
And she appeared to blame this genetic inequality for her inability to get advanced courses for her students. She said she feels “horrible” because she’s “literally being chained down by the admins and by the bureaucracy.” Lokteff then helpfully suggested white nationalists form their own private schools — an idea Dalichov supported.
Of course that’s the tip of the iceberg as far as Dalichov’s bigoted, radical rhetoric is concerned. In the past she’s promoted the work of anti-Semitic author Kevin MacDonald, and claimed the “JQ is incredibly complex” — JQ stands for “Jewish question”:
She’s come to the defense of Neo-Nazi Arthur Jones, as well as white nationalists David Duke and Mike Enoch:
In one tweet Dalichov seemed to suggest that the only way to end Islamic terrorism would be to “eradicate” Muslims altogether:
She routinely retweets white supremacists, including Neo-Nazi Mark Collett and Identity Evropa leader Patrick Casey:
Somewhat predictably Dalichov also believes the recent shooting by a teacher in a Georgia school was a deliberate attempt to discredit President Trump’s plan to arm teachers:
The fact that a white supremacist managed to become a schoolteacher and boast about it to another white supremacist should concern us all. Dalichov is an anti-feminist. She’s prone to conspiratorial thinking. And she believes some of her students are genetically superior to others. As such, she cannot be trusted to treat her pupils fairly and impartially.
