Three separate videos on social media are making the rounds and exposing a bigoted, rude, and unseemly leftist for the jerk that he is.
Pico Rivera Councilman Gregory Salcido, also a teacher at El Rancho High School (and formerly the mayor of the town), was captured on video berating one of his students and disparaging those who serve in our military.

On the video Salcido can be heard saying, “Think about the people you know who are over there. Your freakin’ stupid Uncle Louie or whatever. They’re dumb s – – – s. They’re not high-level bankers. They’re not academic people. They’re not intellectual people… They’re the freakin’ lowest of our low.”
He launched into his rant after seeing one of his students wearing a sweatshirt with the Marines logo on the front.
Salcido also argued that we shouldn’t allow military recruiters into our schools, by comparing the recruiters to pimps. “We don’t allow pimps to come into the school,” he argued.
Some of the students in the class, and their families, were quite offended at the teacher’s disgraceful comments.
“I was very angry,” the student who recorded the video said. “It was so disrespectful to my dad and my uncles and all veterans and those still in the military,” he said. The student added that his father and uncles were all Marine veterans and that they had served bravely in Afghanistan, Desert Storm, and Vietnam. He hadn’t planned for the video to go viral, but his mother shared it with a few of her friends and then it simply exploded across the Internet., with well over 1.5 million people seeing the videos.
This guy is apparently a real winner as the OC Register reports:
This is not the first time Salcido, 49, has come under scrutiny for behavior in the classroom.
In May 2012, he was put on paid administrative leave after the Sheriff’s Department received a complaint that he struck a student.
In July 2010, a parent complained that Salcido had threatened his daughter, made inappropriate comments to his summer school class about race and insulted other students and parents, which Salcido denied.
He was suspended until the following fall’s first day of class.
