Breaking: Look Who Finally Got Fired!

By

Military bashing teacher from southern CA has now been fired.

From LA Times:

A Pico Rivera teacher whose anti-military rant was caught on video and drew widespread condemnation has been terminated from his post, the school board president said.

The El Rancho Unified School District voted unanimously Tuesday evening to fire Gregory Salcido, who taught history at his alma mater El Rancho High School, said Board of Education President Aurora Villon. He has 30 days to appeal the decision.

Villon said students should feel respected on campus, and in this case, she felt “that was not happening.”

“The classroom should never be a place where students feel that they are picked at, bullied, intimidated,” she said.

Salcido, who also serves on the Pico Rivera City Council, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

During the Jan. 26 diatribe, Salcido called members of the military the “lowest of our low.”
“We’ve got a bunch of dumb … over there,” Salcido says in the recording, using an expletive.

“Think about the people who you know who are over there — your freaking stupid Uncle Louie or whatever — they’re dumb…. 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.”

Salcido’s rant appears to have been in reaction to a student wearing a Marines shirt.
