California Democrat Is Unemployed

Posted on | March 22, 2018 | Comments Off on California Democrat Is Unemployed


Gregory Salcido is a Democrat. A member of the city council in the Los Angeles suburb of Pico Rivera, Salcido ran for Congress as a Democrat in 2002, but lost the primary. Salcido’s politics are relevant to the repeated controversies that have plagued his career as a history teacher at El Rancho High School. In 2005, a parent complained that Salcido had initiated a classroom discussion of masturbation. In 2010, Salcido was suspended after reportedly telling a student, “shut up Kelly before I kill you.” In 2012, Salcido was again in trouble for hitting a student and allegedly making fun of the boy’s obesity. These incidents could be regarded in hindsight as “red flags” warning that Salcido was headed toward the self-destruction he reached in January this year:

A Southern California high school teacher was caught on camera denigrating the intelligence of people serving in the US military.
In the videos, which were stealthily recorded in class by a student at El Rancho High in Pico Rivera, California, history teacher Gregory Salcido, 49, can be heard making a variety of unflattering remarks about service people, at one point calling them the ‘lowest of the low.’ . . .
In one of the clips, Salcido can be heard saying, ‘Think about the people who you know are over there. Your freakin’ stupid Uncle Louie or whatever. They’re dumb s***ts. They’re not like high-level thinkers. They’re not academic people. They’re not intellectual people.’
He then says that overseas service people are ‘the freakin’ lowest of our low. Not morally — I’m not saying they make bad moral decisions — they’re not talented people.’ . . .
‘The data is in, we don’t have a good military,’ Salcido says.
The 17-year-old high school senior who shot the videos . . . said that his brother and uncles were Marines who fought in Afghanistan, Desert Storm and Vietnam, and that Salcido’s comments were ‘so disrespectful.’

Now, the “disrespectful” anti-American teacher is unemployed:

A California school district fired a teacher on Tuesday following his viral rant where he called the military the “lowest of our low.”
The El Rancho Unified School District voted unanimously to fire history teacher and Pico Rivera councilman Gregory Salcido, reported Fox News.
“[Salcido’s] comments do not reflect what we stand for, who we are,” El Rancho board of education president Aurora Villon said. “The classroom should never be a place where students feel that they are picked at, bullied, intimidated.” . . .
Aside from making headlines, Salcido’s screed earned him attention from White House chief of staff John Kelly, who said the former teacher “ought to go to hell.”
“I just hope he enjoys the liberties and the lifestyle that we have fought for,” Kelly, who retired from the Marine Corps, told Fox News.

California Democrats hate America.
