The daggers flew this weekend when a disparaging military rant by a California high school teacher went viral.
Pico Rivera, California, high school teacher and city councilman Gregory Salcido is currently on administrative leave after a recording of him berating a student wearing a Marine Corps sweatshirt was posted to social media.
“Don’t you ever freaking bring the freaking military into this classroom,” Salcido can be heard saying. “I don’t understand why we let the freaking military guys come over here and recruit you at school. We don’t have pimps come into school.”
While we have a few colorful words we could share, we’ll let retired Marine general and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly speak for us.
“Well, I think the guy ought to go to hell,” Kelly told Fox News Radio on Wednesday. “I just hope he enjoys the liberties and the lifestyles that we fought for,” the Washington Post quotes him as saying.
One Army veteran challenged Salcido to “make the short trips to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego or to Camp Pendleton to meet some of the ‘dumb sh*ts’ who are training to go fight overseas for his life and his freedom.“
Salcido, what say you?
