California teacher, Gregory Salcido, has been reprimanded for being caught on video calling the military the ‘lowest of the low’.
Takes a special sort of douchebag to disrespect our military in front of students.
This douche calls himself an "educator."https://t.co/tWErEj1lJl

From the San Gabriel Valley Tribune:
Three videos on social media of Pico Rivera Councilman Gregory Salcido, a teacher at El Rancho High School, making disparaging remarks about the military and berating a student for wearing a sweatshirt with a Marines logo have gone viral and created a backlash.
Aguilera-Fort said he was alerted on Friday evening to the video where Salcido is heard saying, “They’re the frickin’ lowest of the low,” in reference to military members.
“We have reached out to Mr. Salcido but have not been able to talk to him because he is out of town,” Aguilera-Fort said.
He and Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Mark Matthews are conducting an investigation.
What is there to investigate?
A vet and a proud member of the ‘lowest of the low’ called Salcido out …

‘They have my back, and I have theirs.
That sums up the amazing men and women in our armed forces and SHAME on this ‘educator’ for disrespecting them in front of his class.
He bullies a kid in class for wearing a @USMC sweatshirt

More from vets:
And for the record, most of us joined the military for love of our country. I gave up a union plumbing job to join the day iraq invaded our ally Kuwait. Because real men protect others , not belittle others to make ourselves seem smarter, or more important.

I saw that Mr. Salcido has a Bachelors Degree; I’m a Military vet with 2 Masters Degrees (from real schools I might add).
I guess that makes him the dumb one.
