High School Teacher Singles Out Vet’s Son For Wearing U.S. Marines Shirt, Then Disparages the Military

Filed under: General — Dana @ 3:14 pm

[guest post by Dana]

Oooh, big man on campus!

El Rancho High School teacher and Pico Rivera city councilman Gregory Salcido was caught on video maligning the U.S. military after singling out a student for wearing a U.S. Marines sweatshirt during his U.S. history class. The student’s father is a Marine veteran who served in Afghanistan:

Three videos on social media of Pico Rivera Councilman Gregory Salcido, a teacher at El Rancho High School, making disparaging remarks about the military and berating a student for wearing a sweatshirt with a Marines logo have gone viral and created a backlash.

El Rancho Unified School District officials confirmed Saturday. Jan. 27 that the person speaking is Salcido and that the incident took place on school grounds.

“We acknowledge it is his voice based on the research of the incident so far and knowing it came from one of our classrooms,” district Superintendent Karling Aguilera-Fort said in a phone interview.

Salcido’s rant included insulting members of the military fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, and claiming that people only enlist in the military because they have no other options. Because they’re just dumb, you see:

“Because we have a bunch of dumbs‑‑‑s over there,” Salcido said in the video, which is peppered with profanity. “Think about the people who you know who are over there. Your freaking stupid Uncle Louie or whatever. They’re dumbs‑‑‑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.”

Of course Salcido completely ignored the many, many fine members of our military with advanced degrees and successful careers, both in and out of the military. He went on to directly address the student who wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps:

“You better not freaking go,” Salcido says in one recording. “Don’t wear that in here.”

He also made racist comments during the rant:

Salcido is heard speaking in loaded terms about foes of the United States, saying the military was losing to “dudes wearing freaking robes and chanclas [flip-flops]” in the Middle East.

“The data is in, we don’t have a good military,” he said. “We couldn’t beat the Vietnamese. They’re a bunch of people this freaking big throwing rice at us.”

He also criticized military recruiters in public schools.

“It’s a lie that our military is freaking b‑‑‑‑ing,” he said. “Why, after the national anthem, do we have a killing machine fly over the freaking stadium? You know, the stealth bomber comes in. Everyone’s all like, ‘Yeah.’ Like, ‘That’s what we kill people with, woo.’ Why would that be something we celebrate?”

After the videos went viral, an enormous backlash followed and as a result, Salcido has been placed on administrative leave and is under investigation by the school board.

Interestingly, this isn’t the first time Salcido’s behavior in the classroom has been the cause for concern:

In May 2012, he was put on paid administrative leave after the Sheriff’s Department received a complaint that he struck a student.

In July 2010, a parent complained that Salcido had threatened his daughter, made inappropriate comments to his summer school class about race and insulted other students and parents, which Salcido denied.

He was suspended until the following fall’s first day of class.

Salcido, who was first elected to the City Council in 1999, stands on the dais with his hands at his side and does not recite the pledge of allegiance along with his colleagues during meetings.

Also, today Fox News Radio played Salcido’s rant for their guest, White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, himself a veteran. After hearing it, he commented:

“Well, I think the guy ought to go to hell. I just hope he enjoys the liberties and the lifestyles that we fought for.”

Said the White House Chief of Staff.

Perhaps high school teacher Salcido will take up one parent’s offer to educate him in an area in which he is obviously deficient:

    The teacher has been reprimanded before for racial insults, btw. Free speech yes, of course, but that doesn’t mean his customers can’t voice their opinions too.

    see this is not high-level thinking

    the jets are made for so we *don’t* have to kill people that’s why the piggies at the pentagon spend like a hundred billion per plane

    the last thing they ever wanna do is actually use these things

    it’s all about deterrence, the rationale for these planes

  13. This should surprise no one. Many teachers in CA spout this America-hate every day.

    Look at the masked cretin who was clubbing people with a bicycle lock at Berkeley; turns out he was a philosophy prof at Diablo Valley CC who openly declared on his Facebook page that his goal was to end civil order.

    This is what the left has become. Just a few years ago Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were against illegal immigration and benefits for illegals, now both items are celebrated by pasty-mouth Kennedy and his ilk because illegals are voters.

    I don’t think they teach history any longer. It’s been replaced with the anti American dribble this douche was ranting. Remember, we’re one of the most diverse countries on the planet but we’re racist. Pardon, white racist. And that must be instilled in the children from k-12.

    Tuesday’s school board agenda was limited to two items — hiring a law firm and then going into a closed session to talk with the new counsel — but that didn’t stop the 150 people who attended from trying to discuss Salcido. Unlike normally scheduled meetings, Tuesday’s agenda did not have an item to allow members of the public to raise issues not on the agenda.

    We have some Azul Hombres out there. Huachale.

    Caló Gitano – mixed language of Spanish Gitanos –some
    Romani lexical items, Spanish grammar.

    Germanía – criminal argot from 16th Century Spain –
    largely Spanish and Italian words disguised to create an
    in-group language, disguised from the general population…

    Caló and Germanía mixed in Spanish prisons –hence,
    modern Caló Gitano contains words of Germanía origin;
    criminal language also contains words from Caló Gitano.

    The term ‘Caló’ is often interpreted to mean ‘criminal
    argot’.

    The area was under the viaduct, near an onramp, and rarely used for bike parking. The reason for the empty racks seemed obvious to Few.

    “They serve no purpose other than seemingly to deter the camping,” he says.

    I do not have what it takes to be a USAF Pararescueman.

    But back to the point, being sensitive is what makes me a good hunter. I’m sensitive to every movement of the animals around me and why they’re doing it. And being a good hunter made me a better intel officer. I won’t say I’m not tender, because I can be. What’s the word I’m looking for? Oh, yeah, weak. Weak is the word I’m looking for.

  103. That story about the Governor of Missouri is that he slept with his hairdresser while they were both married to other people. A lady hairdresser. The stuff about the bondage and the photos is more likely than not something she made up for her husband. Or her husband made up for the media. Forget it, it’s the post-Clinton era.

    SEALs are more about extracting hostages than securing them.

    What do you know about SEALs, who regard a single hostage killed a mission failure.

    Steve57 (0b1dac)

  106. I used to swim a mile a day because I wanted to be an EOD diver. But then I learned you have to become a Surface Warfare Officer to qualify. But I could go SPECWAR.

    Steve57 (0b1dac)

  107. Then I blew out my shoulders. I woke up one day unable to move and I couldn’t get out of bed. I couldn’t even reach for the remote. So I was lying there thinking, “Guess I’m not going to be a SEAL.”

  111. The mysterious death of the 34-year-old Joseph Rago, follows by less than 2 weeks the “suicide” of another Hillary Clinton linked person named Renwick Haddow—a top former Haitian government official who ended up with a bullet in his head just a week prior to his testifying against Hillary Clinton in a Miami, Florida, courtroom.

    These facts beg the question: Was Wall Street Journal Editor/Reporter Joseph Rago killed to prevent publication of his Hillary Clinton-Russia story?

    Who should be more worried-Glee co-stars or people looking into Hillary?

  114. Most people don’t realize that during Watergate, in the midst of the Saturday Night Massacre, Robert Bork—as solicitor general, the No. 3 official, who became acting attorney general after the resignation of attorney general Elliot Richardson and deputy attorney general William Ruckelshaus—was actually pressured by Richardson and Ruckelshaus to do Nixon’s bidding and fire special prosecutor Archibald Cox. At the time, the Justice Department’s line of succession was only three deep: If Bork resigned too, it wasn’t clear who would lead the department, and Richardson feared outright chaos.

  123. Gilligan’s Isle Been Burned’s Brain

    Just sit right back
    And you’ll read a tale
    A tale of an uncouth clown
    Who minced on in one fateful day
    When no one was around
    This dude was a sad clown on teh grift
    He started writing schiff
    And then he sat his fat ass down
    For a twelve hour shift
    A twelve hour shift

    The going started getting rough
    Free speech comes with a cost
    If not for the patience of the blogging host
    This minnow would be tossed
    The minnow would be tossed

    Rear Admiral Been Burned is his name
    he brings comic relief
    With felipe
    narciso too.
    Teh Reverend
    And his wife,
    So many folks
    Cthulhu ConDave too

  130. No, no SAS experience here. I was intel, not anyone special. I don’t even have a decent “My three days with the SEALs” story.

    Except, maybe, that time in when I as rooming with a couple of SEALs aboard Kadena and one of them gave me a black eye. By accident. Had he been doing it on purpose I would have gotten a lot more than a black eye.

  141. Apparently, was Kortan not the guy on alias.

    narciso (d1f714)

  142. I thought I was the official naval officer of the site. Why, I drove navy ships entirely by myself. Gunnery, navigation, aviation, I did it all. I blanking fed myself. And while I’m at it I defended the country entirely by myself. What other services are you speaking of?

    Steve57 (0b1dac)

  143. That all goes without saying, Steve, and here is a hearty salute from someone who enjoys the positive externalities of close proximity to the Great Lakes Naval Training Center. But someone else, for a long time, was false-flagging as an Admiral.

    urbanleftbehind (5eecdb)

  144. A thought exercise, someone caps thecayatollah unlikely there would have been no hostage crisis orxsiege of Mecca, perhaps thevsoviets are not emboldened to invade Afghanistan, but the carter is not defeated, and we surrender to the soviet’s in mondales term as in come nineveh come tire.

    narciso (d1f714)

  145. That would have been bad, as the R bench was not particularly deep after Reagan (it became much more enlarged/emboldened after his victory), still suffering from cleavages of establishment v. Goldwater/Sagebrush rebellion. The Southern Strategy may have muffled through patronage. Obama in many ways was the deferral of the would be Mondale reign, as it would have been a northern, lefty overcorrection after a pragmatic (by comparison) southerner.

    And how does that surrender take place, does it follow Red Dawn act for act, or is it simply a withering away from Germany/Japan/South Korea and a bolder flag plant in Latin America?

  149. One of the made-for-TV NBC Dirty Dozen movies in the ’80s with an aged Lee Marvin, detailed the mission of killing a Rommel-like 2nd in command circa early 1944. When the Dozen get to the German base, the sniper of the group has a clear shot on Hitler himself, but Marvin dissuades him saying its better if he burns out and takes the German state with him rather that creating a void where a more capable military leader can take over.
