Remember the teacher who went on an anti-Military rant? He’s in trouble…

On Thursday, the Pico Rivera, California City Council held a meeting to consider firing Gregory Salcido, the teacher who was recorded going on an anti-Military rant.

Mayor Gustavo Camacho called Salcido’s rant “bullying, arrogant and aggressive behavior,” the Associated Press reported.

Salcido defended his comments in front of angry residents.

“My goal as it relates to my students is to get them to do everything to get to college,” Salcido said. “I wanted to challenge them to reach their academic potential.”

The mayor and three council members voted to urge Salcido to resign. Salcido voted against the motion and one abstained from voting.

Military members put their lives on the line. The last thing they need is someone in a public office degrading them and their service.

He probably hasn’t made a public appearance because he knows he screwed up.

Talk about ANOTHER slap in the face to our men and women in uniform. DISGUSTING.

GOOD. He SHOULD have to listen to them.

I’m listening to Pico Rivera councilman and teacher Gregory Salcido make the most unrepentant speech I’ve ever heard at a meeting where they will vote to ask for his resignation. MM

He’s not sorry about what he said. He’s sorry he got caught.

He’s a disgrace, he obviously knows nothing about the Armed Forces of the United States. He needs to resign.

Or he’s just an educated person who thinks he knows everything.

So good to see even in Liberal California that Pico Rivera is sticking it to Councilman Salcido for bashing the military. Love this display of unity for our military. God Bless America!

There are somethings liberals can agree with conservatives on. This is one of those things.

And he didn’t even bother to put his hand over his heart for the Pledge of Allegiance.

Which is another disgrace to this great country.

Quite possibly the most dishonorable and pathetic displays I’ve ever seen. I actually feel bad for this clown’s family and the City of Pico

Makes you wonder what his family thinks about this.

 

Send him to Afghanistan, have him see first hand what the military is all about. He is Hiding behind the heroes who are protecting our freedom so that he can sit back, complain and insult.

Give him a rifle and leave him to his own devices. That’ll shut him up REAL quick.

That’s DEFINITELY an understatement.

When he was my teacher 10 years ago he never said anything bad 😬

People change and it’s not always for the better.
