A California teacher who also serves on the city council of the town of Pico Rivera — and is a former mayor — is in a bit of hot water after one of his students allegedly recorded him delivering a profane anti-military rant.
Gregory Salcido — who had previously made news in 2012 for allegedly slapping a student at El Rancho High School, where he teaches — called the military the “lowest of the low” in the videos, which were uploaded to Facebook on Friday, according to The Daily Caller.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the rant was apparently sparked by a student wearing a Marines shirt in his class.
As The Daily Caller reported:
“The video of Salcido’s comments were posted to Facebook by a family friend of the student who took it and they quickly went viral. The student, who wished to remain anonymous, is the son and nephew of military veterans and told the local paper, “’It was so disrespectful to my dad and my uncles and all veterans and those still in the military.’”
How disrespectful? Judge for yourself.
“You better not freaking go,” Salcido says, apparently to the student wearing the shirt. “Don’t wear that in here.”
“We’ve got a bunch of dumbs**** over there,” he continues in the most offensive part of the rant.
“Think about the people who you know who are over there — your freaking stupid Uncle Louis or whatever, they’re dumbs****. 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. Not morally, I’m not saying they make bad moral decisions, they’re not talented people,” Salcido says.
Bottom of Form
To make things worse, local leaders told the Los Angeles Times that Pico Rivera has strong community ties to the military. Needless to say, Salcido’s job is in jeopardy.
