Outrageous CA Teacher Caught on Tape: US Military Members 'The Lowest of the Low'
A California high school teacher and local politician is being investigated after a student clandestinely recorded his apparent anti-military rant.
Administrators at a high school in Pico Rivera, Calif., east of Los Angeles, are looking into comments Councilman Gregory Salcido allegedly made to his students.
"Think about the people you know who are over there [in the military]. They're your freaking stupid Uncle Louie or whatever," Salcido said, according to the audiotape.
"They're dumb [expletives]. They're not high level bankers, they're not academic people, they're not intellectual people," he said. "They're the freaking lowest of the low."
The student who recorded Salcido's rant said he did so because he found the comments offensive as the son and nephew of veterans.
According to Salcido's government biography, he served as the city's mayor in 2002, 2010 and 2015.
The bio said Salcido credits his students as a "constant reminder that keeping a positive and optimistic disposition is necessary for a productive future."
