Someone reported this teacher's white supremacist activities - and got him fired - 2018-01-08
A substitute teacher and former field hockey coach at an all-girls Catholic high school in Maryland was fired after administrators were tipped off that he was a white nationalist, found to be affiliated with alt-right thought leader Richard Spencer.
Turns out that Greg Conte, 29, who had been working at the Academy of the Holy Cross high school since at least 2014, was moonlighting as director of operations at the National Policy Institute, a white nationalist think tank founded by Spencer.
The school received an anonymous tip-off in the form of an email regarding Conte in late October, the school's communications director, Danielle Ballantine, confirmed to VICE News. Ballantine said the school was able to confirm the contents of the email very quickly. Days later, school president Kathleen Ryan Prebble confronted Conte, who confessed to his alternate white nationalist identity, and fired him.
