CA Teacher Slams Military Members as 'Lowest of the Low'

Local officials in Pico Rivera, CA, say they denounce Gregory Salcido's alleged comments, as heard in viral videos of the El Rancho High School teacher. "They're the freakin' lowest of our low" when talking about the military and the caliber of people who he says choose to sign up. They're dumbs-s. They're not like high-level thinkers, they're not academic people, they're not intellectual people. "Not morally, I'm not saying they make bad moral decisions, they're not talented people".

Salcido then says troops overseas are "the freakin' lowest of our low".

The Pico Rivera High School instructor also compared military recruiters to pimps and said the only people who enlist are those whose families don't "love" them enough to push them into college. One of the videos has been viewed almost 6 million times since first it was first posted Friday.

"This is not something that we are taking lightly", she told The Times.

The videos went viral after being posted on Facebook by a CT woman claiming to be the anonymous student's mother's friend.

He appears to have shot the video from underneath a desk.

"It's so traditional and so rooted in strong family values", Villon said.

"It was so disrespectful to my dad and my uncles and all veterans and those still in the military", he said.

He said the video wasn't meant for anyone else, but his mother shared it with a few friends "and now it's this".

According to CBS 2 Los Angeles, Salcido was removed from all committees on the Pico Rivera City Council over his remarks.

Rodriguez thinks Salcido should no longer be allowed to teach.

Salcido will not be able to go to the classroom and "all the results will be pending the investigation", Aguilera-Fort said.

Salcido did not answer the door when reporters visited his home.

A woman who said she was a friend of the parents posted the video to Facebook Friday afternoon.

"The Salcido 3 just got out of an excellent musical, "The Band's Arrival".

"I don't think it's wise for me to make specific comments but I want my friends, family and students to know we are fine and we respect the rights of free expression for all individuals", he wrote on Facebook at the time.

Members of Pico Rivera's American Legion chapter plan to protest Salcido's comments Tuesday night, CBS 2 reports. "I and my fellow councilmembers strongly disagree with Mr. Salcido's comments", said Pico Rivera Mayor Gustavo Camacho.

Archuleta, an Army veteran and a Los Angeles County Commissioner of Military Veteran's Affairs, met Monday morning with two men standing across the street from El Rancho High School to protest Salcido's comments.

Although Salcido has denied all these claims, he was still suspended from teaching until the fall semester started.
