Cali High School Teacher Calls Military “Lowest of Our Low”


A Southern California high school teacher was videotaped trashing members of the military as “the frickin’ lowest of the low” in a classroom rant to students.

The student who filmed it was angry because the so-called teacher aimed his remarks at a student with a Marine sweatshirt. The tape has since gone viral.

El Rancho high history teacher Gregory Salcido — who also serves as an elected Pico Rivera city councilman [Democrat] and was once mayor — describes those who are in the military overseas as failed students who had no choice but to serve.

“Think about the people you know who are over there,” Salcido is heard saying. “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 was also heard commenting on military recruiters visiting the school. “We don’t allow pimps to come into the school,” he says.

Listen to the tape, his response

The school will sanction him and Salcido has yet to comment, other than this post on his Facebook page.


  1. I’m a female veteran of the Vietnam era. I was an Army GCA air traffic controller (radar). After being discharged, I went on to get my Associate’s Degree, then my Bachelor’s Degree, and later a Master’s certificate. I spent the last 16 years of my career as a teacher. I’m now retired and spend a lot of time working on personal projects and doing volunteering work in my community. What has the frickin’ low life done to help his country and community? Nothing but complain about those who protect his right to free speech!

    • Thank you for your service. That’s an easy question – he does the opposite of what you do He teaches kids the wrong things and spreads hate. That doesn’t even touch on his ignorance.
