A California teacher found himself under close scrutiny and a large amount of negative blowback within a short amount of time after going off on an anti-military rant in front of his students all because one young man was honoring his family members who have and do serve by wearing a Marine’s hoodie. Apparently, clothing items can trigger those with less than average levels of common sense and decency. Gregory Salcido in not only a teacher paid for by the taxpayers but also a city council member and a former Mayor, both of which are taxpayer funded positions as well.
So it is safe to assume that being an employee of The People, he would be well aware that opening his mouth and letting loose a hate charged tirade against our military members would probably be a very bad idea, but apparently he missed that class in college, and now he is paying the consequences of his actions.
According to Conservative Tribune:
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.
“Three 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.”
