Gregory Salcido, a history teacher at El Rancho High, was recorded on video in an amazingly stupid rant slamming our armed forces as “the frickin’ lowest of the low” to his classroom.
Salcido is also an elected Pico Rivera city councilman and was once mayor and even refers to those who are overseas as “failed students” who have no choice but to serve.
The arrogance is STRONG in this one!
“Think about the people you know who are over there,” Salcido is heard saying. “Your freakin’ stupid Uncle Louie or whatever. They’re dumb s – – – s. They’re not high-level bankers. They’re not academic people. They’re not intellectual people.”
“They’re the freakin’ lowest of our low.”
“We don’t allow pimps to come into the school,” he says.
The video, posted to Facebook, calls on help making it go VIRAL:
“Help me make this go viral. My friends son was sporting his marine sweater while this liberal douche teacher rants about the military. The school is called El Rancho high school in the city of Pico Rivera California. The teacher’s name is MR. Salcido.
Superintendent Karling Aguilera-Fort”
Salcido posted a statement on his personal Facebook page Friday.
“The Salcido 3 just got out of an excellent musical, “The Band’s Arrival,” he said. “I turned my phone back on to unexpectedly see a storm. I don’t think it’s wise for me to make any specific comments, but I want my friends, family, and students to know we are fine and we respect the rights of free expression for all individuals.”
The student who recorded the video stated the Register that the teacher went too far when he said those in the military were stupid and only joined as a last resort.
“It was so disrespectful to my dad and my uncles and all veterans and those still in the military,” he said.
