Teacher Yanked From Classroom After Bashing US Military



by Grace Carr

A California teacher has been pulled out of the classroom after a student posted a video of him bashing the military and calling its members low lives.

“Think about the people who you know who are over there. Your freaking stupid Uncle Louie or whatever. They’re dumb—-s. They’re not like high-level thinkers, they’re not academic people, they’re not intellectual people. They’re the lowest of our low,” El Rancho High School teacher Gregory Salcido, said to his students, the Whittier Daily News reported Monday.

One of Salcido’s students who hopes to become a Marine took multiple videos of the teacher making obscene remarks and posted them to Facebook on Friday night, prompting the city council and school board to take action. A video of the teacher’s comments has since been taken down from Facebook.

“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. Salcido has been banned from the classroom pending an investigation.

The city council and town mayor strongly condemned the teacher’s remarks and affirmed their strong support for all servicemen. “The City Council and residents of Pico Rivera are steadfast in the recognition that the contributions by those who have served or are currently serving our country via military service are respected and we are grateful for their service,” Mayor Gustavo Camacho said in a Monday statement.

A Pentagon spokesman also weighed in on Salcido’s behavior, calling his remarks “very uninformed,” according to Fox News.

Salcido has refused all interviews, citing the emotional and physical health of his wife and son as his main priority.

  1. “Teachers” of this caliber populate classrooms across our Country in elementary schools through some of the ‘finer’ universities……I would hope that the action this young man took has been the motivation for us as parents and grandparents to really take a good look at what our own are exposed to. Go to those parent-teacher meetings, talk to other parents and most of all talk to the children. ASK questions

  2. Not only is salcido a fool – despite obviously believing himself to be an intellect – he is also a Coward! Hey greg! One of the Marine’s mottos is “Superior thinking overcomes superior force!”. You could NEVER duplicate yourself enough time to be equal to ONE Marine – or Anyone who serves this Country’s military. Any time I hear that a U.S. Military Service Person has died in the line of duty I’m going to write your name on a piece of paper and defecate on it!! If you had a shred of decency you would take your sorry ass and immigrate to another country!

    GET OUT!!

  3. And here I thought there was protection of free speech. What’s next on the chopping block? This country is full of lambs and plastic people. The laws of this land only apply to the powerful, famous and the rich.

    You phucking idiots

    1. Robert, free speech is where you share your personal opinion on your own time. Free Speech IS NOT when a person invokes the powers of his institution to insult very students who’s family members have given their honor and sometimes their lives to provide a platform of free speech in a public arena. And just FYI, Teachers are barred from discussing many topics that students are free to discuss. And if you really believe you are free to speak whatever you wish, whenever you wish, try insulting your customers, or your boss or whatever at work and see how long you keep your position. Free Speech is not as free as you would like sometimes.

  4. Frigging so called intellectual nothing more that stereotype left wing democrat that wouldn’t make for a good size zit on a service man/woman’s arse. This is what ya get when you complacent beaches let the socialist take over our institutes of higher educations. New Law. You don’t serve. You don’t vote.
