California Teacher Calls US Soldiers 'Dumb Sh*ts' in Classroom Rant

A school district in Southern California says it's looking into allegations that a teacher told his history class that military service members are "the lowest of our low".

When his teacher, Gregory Salcido, went off on an anti-military rant, Victor Quinonez, a student at El Rancho High School, recorded it in a video that has now gone viral.

"The Salcido 3 just got out of an excellent musical, 'The Band's Arrival.' I turned my phone back on to unexpectedly see a storm". That's fine, he can say what he wants, but to say it to the youth is wrong.

The video doesn't show Salcido's face, but the Pico Rivera City Council acknowledged it's him in a statement it issued to condemn the comments.

"They're not like high level thinkers, they're not academic people, they're not intellectual people", Salcido ranted.

In 2010, Salcido was reportedly accused by a parent of making inappropriate racial comments during a summer school class, the Register reported.

On Monday, Victor Quinonez told KTLA he recorded the videos because he was exhausted of hearing disparaging remarks about the military from the teacher.

"I'm anxious about the safety of my brothers right now, I'm not so anxious about myself", Victor Quinonez said. "I don't understand why students have to go bringing my brother into this and bringing my other family members in to this".

"We couldn't beat the Vietnamese, they are a bunch of people this big throwing rice at us, and we couldn't beat them".

Rodriguez thinks Salcido should no longer be allowed to teach.

He then goes on to suggest that you would only join the military as a last resort: 'So, if you join the military, it's because you had no other options.

The voice also tells the student not to join the military and to never wear the sweatshirt again.

Bandh call evokes lukewarm response in other parts of state
Bengaluru , Mysuru and Malaprabha Command Area's districts like Belagavi, Gadag, Dharwad and Bagalkot bore the maximum brunt. In the wake of the bandh, schools and colleges, even private companies such as Wipro, have declared a holiday.

Salcido was in New York City when the video was posted, the Los Angeles Times reported. So far, the post has been shared more than 90,000 times and has provoked around 23,000 comments.

The school board said it is investigating, and Salcido's fellow City Council members have expressed dismay.

Officials from a Southern California city are roundly condemning disparaging comments made about members of the US military by a local teacher.

The following week, the Pico Rivera City Council will meet and Mayor Gustavo Camacho told CNN he plans to strip Salcido of his committee assignments. She said that, at this time, Salcido will not be returning to El Rancho High School.

And the school district is looking at taking action against Salcido, too.

"Our classrooms are not the appropriate place for one-sided discussions that undermine the values our families hold dear". The next school board meeting is February 6.
