Hello Americans. I’m Todd Starnes with news and commentary next.
An update to a story I shared with you the other day.
A pro-Antifa teacher at Indurken High School in Sacramento was captured on undercover video saying he wanted to turn his students into revolutionaries.
“I have 180 days to turn them into revolutionaries…scare the f–k out of them,” Advanced Placement Government teacher Gabriel Gipe said in an undercover video filmed by Project Veritas.
“I post a calendar every week,” he said. “I’ve had students show up for protests, community events, tabling, food distribution, all sorts of things. … When they go, they take pictures, they write up a reflection – that’s their extra credit.”
Photos taken by undercover Project Veritas journalists purported to show an “Antifascist Action” flag and a Mao Zedong poster prominently displayed in Gipe’s classroom. The man in the video said he once shamed a student for taking issue with the Antifa flag.
“I have an Antifa flag on my wall and a student complained about that and he said it made him feel uncomfortable,” he said. “And I addressed it to everyone because I didn’t know who it was. ‘Well, this is meant to make fascists feel uncomfortable, so if you feel uncomfortable, I don’t really know what to tell you. Maybe you shouldn’t be aligning with the values that [the Antifa flag] is antithetical to.’”
The radical leftist went on to say that he tracked the political leanings of his students and noted that many had become fellow leftists.
“I’ve met so many people in my life who, when they met me, thought I was off the wall, and now they’re all Marxists,” he said in the video.
“I’m probably as far left as you can go,” he said. “Like, why aren’t people just taking up arms? Like why can’t we, you know, take up arms against the state? We have historical examples of that happening, and them getting crushed and being martyrs for a cause and it’s like, OK, well, it’s slow going because it takes massive amounts of organization.”
Hundreds of angry and horrified parents turned out at the school board meeting in Sacramento – demanding Mr. Gipe be thrown out of the school.
He was captured on undercover video boasting about turning students into radical activists. He even had an Antifa flag in his classroom.
The Natomas School District said such behavior is unacceptable and the teacher will be dismissed.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer once said that silence in the face of evil is evil itself. Thank goodness the moms and dads of the Natomas Unified School District chose to speak out. They showed the rest of the nation that if we stand together — We The People can defeat the Communists.
