Pro-Antifa Teacher Fired after Video Shows Him Vowing to Turn Kids into Leftists
California high school teacher Gabriel Gipe caught admitting to communist indoctrination
A California high school teacher has been fired after he was caught on video admitting that he has been indoctrinating his students to support a radical-left communist agenda in the hope they become Antifa activists.
Inderkum High School has now confirmed that teacher Gabriel Gipe will be fired after the undercover journalism group Project Veritas released a video featuring his staggering admission.
In the video, Gipe said that he has "180 days" in which to "turn them into revolutionaries."
Project Veritas indicated that Gipe was referring to the time he had the students in his class.
Among some of the many other comments Gipe made in the video, he said he rewards students academically if they help him to promote Antifa.
He also boasted that he has an Antifa flag on his classroom wall which students had complained about.
Gipe said, "the student complained [about the Antifa flag] and said that it made him feel uncomfortable."
He then gloated that he suggested to the student that they must be a "fascist" if they didn't like his Antifa flag.
"Well, this [Antifa flag] is made to make fascists feel uncomfortable," he says he told the student.
"So if you feel uncomfortable, I don't know what to tell you."
"In following the principles of democracy, Natomas Unified staff is following due process, the law, and spent the past two days investigating the alleged teacher actions and his classroom environment," Superintendent Chris Evans wrote in a letter to the Natomas Unified School District community.
"As of today, this teacher was placed on paid leave because of his actions and choices in the classroom.
"Natomas Unified will be taking the legally required next steps to place the teacher on unpaid leave and fire the teacher.
"By taking a day and a half to investigate beyond the video, the district was able to learn more facts essential to the next steps."
Evans noted in the Sept. 1 letter that posters and signs have been taken off of the classroom walls.
"This morning, the walls of the classroom were cleared of all posters and signage. Not all of the material was inappropriate," Evans wrote
"However, the district believes the physical learning environment can best be rebuilt from a total fresh start."
He also said that the teacher spent his own funds to buy rubber stamps to mark students' work that featured images of figures including communist dictator Fidel Castro and others.
"Additionally, the teacher, using his own money, purchased a series of rubber stamps," Evans said.
"These stamps include an inappropriate image of Josef Stalin with an insensitive phrase, as well as other stamps with Fidel Castro, Kim Jung Un, and others.
"These were purchased shortly before the pandemic and their use was likely initially limited due to Distance Learning.
"The district's investigation did discover that at least during the 13 days of this school year, he was using those stamps to mark student work as complete."
