It doesn’t get significantly more tasteless than to disrespect the men and ladies who secure our nation in the military. You don’t need to help each war and you don’t need to help each organization however you must be a genuine crawl to decry the men and ladies who present their lives to secure us.
That is precisely what a city councilman who additionally happens to be a secondary teacher recently did in front of his students. Sadly for him, one of his students recorded his vile rant.
From Breitbart News:
A city councilman and high school teacher from Pico Rivera, California, was caught on camera making disparaging remarks against members of the U.S. military, several videos show.
Gregory Salcido, who sits on the Pico Rivera City Council, told students in his history class using vulgar language that members of the military are dumb, untalented beings who joined because they were poor students, according to several videos captured by a student in Salcido’s class.
“They’re the frickin’ lowest of our low,” Salcido can be heard saying in one of the videos.
“We’ve got a bunch of dumbshits over there. Think about the people who you know who are over there — your freaking stupid uncle Louis or whatever, they’re dumbshits,” Salcido continued. “They’re not, like, high-level thinkers, they’re not academic people, they’re not intellectual people, they’re the freaking lowest of our low.”
Clearly, this isn’t a guy playing with a full deck.
Here’s some video.
Pretty unbelievable that this guy is teaching the next generation of Americans.
Well, it looks like he finally got punished.
From Washington Examiner:
A California school district has put teacher Gregory Salcido on administrative leave after a video went viral in which he can be heard calling U.S. troops the “lowest of the low” and a “bunch of dumb shits,” according to a new report.
Salcido, who is also a city councilman in Pico Rivera, was also removed from the council’s committees after local officials condemned the comments, which were made to a group of high school students, a CBS News affiliate also reported.
This guy has no business teaching until he can show he understands what a ridiculous thing is for a teacher to say. How would you feel if your students were being subjected to this kind of thing? Obviously, not good. Your tax dollars at work.
From Fox News:
The Southern California teacher facing a firestorm after he was recorded by a student bashing the military in a profane classroom rant has been placed on administrative leave and removed from all assignments he’d be given as a city councilman.
Gregory Salcido, the El Rancho High School teacher and elected Pico Rivera city councilman, will not be able to enter the classroom while school officials conduct an investigation into the recording, the Whittier Daily News reported late Monday.
“One thing we are telling people for sure is that the commitment of the board and the superintendent and the staff is to really get to the bottom of this for the community,” School Superintendent Karling Aguilera-Fort told the paper.
Another teacher has taken over his history and government classes for the foreseeable future, he said.
