Pico Rivera Councilman and former Mayor Greg Salcido told his high school class that the US Military is full of “dumbshits”.
Salcido does not salute the flag or participate in prayer during council meetings.
In a stunning expletive-filled diatribe El Ranch High School teacher and Pico Rivera City Councilman Greg Salcido was caught on audio slamming all United States military personnel as “dumbshits” and “not talented” during a class lecture.
“We have night vision goggles and we can’t control these people wearing robes and chanklas” said Salcido to his class.
“It’s a lie our military is talented,” he said.
“Because we have a bunch of fricken dumbshits over there. They [the military] are not high-level bankers, they are not academics, they are not intellectuals….they are the lowest of the low, think about the people you know over there, stupid uncle Louis’, they are not talented people, they are dumbshits. The data is in, we don’t have a talented military, we have not been able to beat people with robes.
“The data is in they are the lowest of the low, why we don’t win.”
“Why do we have stupid f***ing bombers fly over during events, that’s what we kill people with and we cheer them on?”
As the class listened in horror Salcido continued, “we could not beat the Vietnamese…. they are people this fucking big THROWING RICE at us, we could not beat people since World War II, it’s a lie that a military is bitchen.”
“So if you join the military you have no other options, so your parents want you off their ass, your grandparents want you off their ass for four or six years, and they want the neighbors to think you did well.”
Are you aware that they have a GPA of zero point zero?
Salcido then blasted military recruiters saying, “I don’t know why they let recruiters come here they lie to you, we don’t let pimps come to the school, why let them say anybody want to be a whore?”
“The recruiters lie to you, if you are interested in college why would you ever consider the military?”
“They pay for college, bullshit, they give you all this bullshit to see the world, you are not going to college.”
Salcido then went on a rant about the 9/11 bombings comparing joining the Army (video 3), “you remember seeing people jumping out of the trade center, why did they do that? Burn or jump? Do you want to eat dog shit or cat shit? They would rather jump.
Using several expletives, Salcido used 9/11 as an option that it would be better to jump than join the military.
Sources have told HMG-CN that Salcido was in New York this weekend and was set to meet the Army Corps of Engineers. Salcido decided not to attend and “is on his way back to California.”
Bob Archuleta, a former member of the Obama Administration as a presidential appointee to West Point, former mayor of Pico Rivera , a combat veteran who served with the 82nd Airborne, Archuleta has two sons actively serving. One is a major with a Masters and a PhD, the other is a captain deployed and currently serving our country.
“Both of my sons are appalled at the news that has hit Pico Rivera. Are they among the dumbshits that Saucedo is referring to? We have 17 astronauts from West Point, are they dumbshits? I don’ think so Salcido. I have been fortunate to serve this great county, I have been with military who are bright and articulate. We stand behind all military and veterans, you have dishonored our military and veterans. Sacrifice comes with honor, your actions and comments are appalling. THAT KID WAS wearing a Marine sweatshirt from his father or uncle…. he was wearing it with pride and you as a teacher for El Rancho and a Pico City Councilman have dishonored all miiltary branches for your conduct and comments.
In a statement, Pico Rivera Mayor Gustavo Camacho said, “While I cannot comment of Councilman Salcido’s recent remarks, I can say unequivocally that I and the other councilmembers don’t agree with his point of view regarding those who have served or are currently serving in our nation’s military. In fact, the City of Pico Rivera was founded upon the principles, values and sacrifices of many of our veterans who when called upon by our nation served with great pride and honor. Those men and women who have proudly served in our nation’s armed forces have proven time and again that personal sacrifice in the face of injustice and tyranny can literally change the world for the better. The city council and residents of Pico Rivera are steadfast in the recognition that their contributions are respected and that we are grateful for their service. In fact, the city has a number of programs that benefit veterans and their families.”
