White Nationalist Educator Fired for His Views –– This Time for Hiding From Them

White Nationalist Frank Borzellieri is running out of places to hide.

The former head of Our Lady of Mount Carmel School was fired last week after his new employers at the Diocese of Erie, Pa., found out that Borzellieri –– a white nationalist with a sizable catalog of incendiary writings and statements in Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance magazine, which is listed by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group –– had used a fictitious name in his application in an attempt to hide from his own views and writings.

Borzellieri, whose inflammatory writings were exposed in 2011, used the name Mario Bella when he was hired last December to run the DuBois Area Catholic School, about 75 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

“It came to our attention that it wasn’t his real name, and the reason he was let go in New York was based on false information,” Bishop Lawrence Persico told the Daily News in New York. “He no longer works at the school, effective immediately.”

This isn’t the first time Borzellieri’s views have gotten the best of him, and it isn’t the first time he has tried to hide from them.

In 2011, Officials at Our Lady of Mount Carmel School, a Roman Catholic school in New York City, let him go after the Daily News revealed that he had written books predicting America’s expanding black and Hispanic populations would create a “New Dark Age.” The newspaper also reported that as a Queens school board member from 1993 to 2002, Borzellieri tried to ban “anti-American” literature from the school’s library, including a biography of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
