Teacher Gregory Salcido Says Military Are ‘Dumbsh*ts

Jan 28, 2018 by

A California city councilman and high school history teacher at El Rancho High School in Pico Rivera, Calif, was caught on video disparaging the United States military and calling its members “dumbshits” who are not “high-level thinkers.”


In May 2012, he was put on paid administrative leave after the Sheriff’s Department received a complaint that he struck a student.

Gregory Salcido is a current member of the Pico Rivera City Council.

Three profanity-laced videos surfaced on Facebook Friday of Salcido declaring to his students that members of the military are dumb people who joined because they were poor students and that they are the “lowest of our low” of the country.

“They’re the frickin’ lowest of our low,” Salcido can be heard saying.

Three video of Salcido’s comments were posted to Facebook by a family friend of the student who took it and they quickly went viral. The student, who wished to remain anonymous, is the son and nephew of military veterans and told the local paper, “It was so disrespectful to my dad and my uncles and all veterans and those still in the military.”

Throughout the three videos, Salcido can be heard using vulgar language to describe the military as failed students with no other options but to serve. “We’ve got a bunch of dumbshits over there. Think about the people who you know who are over there — your freaking stupid uncle Louis or whatever, they’re dumbshits. They’re not, like, high-level thinkers, they’re not academic people, they’re not intellectual people, they’re the freaking lowest of our low. Not morally, I’m not saying they make bad moral decisions, they’re not talented people,”


This is not Salcido’s first brush with controversy. In 2012, he was accused of smacking one of his students who he said was disruptive.

The school district is investigating the videos and refused to comment on a “personnel matter.”

Salcido is currently on vacation, but posted a vague comment to his Facebook page about the controversy.

Other posts on Salcido’s Facebook pages show he is not a fan of President Donald Trump.

On the official webpage for his city council job, Salcido’s bio reads, “Councilman Salcido credits his students for being a constant reminder that keeping a positive and optimistic disposition is necessary for a productive future.”

    This so called teacher is an embarrassment, not just to the endeavors of Academia’s. But, also to the American Spirit. When people say or do stupid things, all they do is show their ignorance. My children would never attend a school with this uneducated, unpatriotic, misinformed IDIOT! Signed-Dan. Not Evelyn

    I’m a retired Master Sergeant, U.S. Army where I served for 22 years. A**holes like this guy have no clue what in the hell they are talking about. He badmouths our military which is an easy thing to do for someone that probably didn’t serve themselves. I’d like to take him to Iraq or Afghanistan and put him in the line of fire to see what these men and women have to deal with on a daily basis.

  3. Freedom of speech is a gift from the fighting Men and Women of this country. But, I do object to where these statements are spoken. To teach our children with a bias is not acceptable. It is going behind the backs of the parents. It’s going behind the backs of the Americans that pay his salary. Often the most beautiful gifts of this country are abused by the Ugliest of people.

    If ever there was a case for home schooling this is it. He should be fired on the grounds that he is poisoning young students minds. Akin to someone in the medical field who knowingly allows an infectious disease to spread.

  5. The sad news is, those morons would be the first line of defense for you and, if you have a family after this.
    Rather than follow democrat actions that divide our country, why not keep this divisive rhetoric to yourself and promote this country and the citizens within.

    He needs to pack his bags and leave the United States of America. His hatred towards our US military is not acceptable. His domestic terrorism will not be tolerated.

    Ralph Spadafora, thank you for your service.

    Gregory Salcido, compared to you, pond scum is the nectar of the gods.

    This POS is just jealous of our military and he is definitely a COWARD…NO DOUBT ABOUT IT! He was probably turned down by a military recruiter before for his sorry douche bag look, and he’s been bitter since.

    Someone needs to tell this faggot to better start growing a set of eyes on the back of his head. He disrespected our military and it’s only a matter of time before someone gets to his sorry waste of skin, and teach him a lesson he’ll never forget.

    What a asshole, you need you ass beat Greg

  10. I hope that dumb SHIT Gregory Salcido will be fired for his comments I’m a UNITED STATES MARINE I would love to meet him and see if he runs his mouth then. That ungrateful moron should kiss the floor that us morons are protecting his worthless ass.
