Louis Marinelli was born in Buffalo, New York in 1986. He shares a birthday with William B. Ide of Massachusetts, the leader of the Bear Flag Revolt that brought about the short-lived California Republic in 1846. The two were born on March 28.
Throughout Marinelli’s educational career, he studied Russian Translation at the Institute for Applied Linguistics at Kent State University in Ohio, and Political Science at the University of Northern Iowa and later at Oregon State University, where he completed his coursework for that degree. He also has a TEFL certificate and is currently pursuing a professional certificate in journalism at the UCLA Extension.
Marinelli, 36, is married to a legal immigrant from Russia and is the father of a dual citizen of both the United States and Russia. He is a registered Republican and identifies as a national-populist.

Marinelli opposes “woke” ideology and the broader effort by leftists to bring about radical social transformation. As such, he does not declare his self-evident pronouns, opposes the effort to allow biological men to participate in women’s sports, or use women’s bathrooms and locker rooms, and vice versa.
Likewise, Marinelli stands strongly against sex change operations and related medicines and treatments for persons under the age of 18, the inclusion of these topics in elementary and middle school curricula, and believes drag shows should not be put on for children.
