A pro-Antifa public high school teacher in California is reportedly set to be fired after he was caught on camera admitting to an undercover journalist that he is indoctrinating his students with left-wing propaganda to turn them into “revolutionaries.”
A video published this week by Project Veritas exposed Gabriel Gipe, an advanced placement government teacher at Inderkum High School, detailing how he pushes his leftist ideological view on his students.
“I have an Antifa flag on my [classroom] wall and a student complained about that — he said it made him feel uncomfortable. Well, this [Antifa flag] 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 this [Antifa flag] is antithetical to,” Gipe told an undercover journalist at Project Veritas. “I have 180 days to turn [students] into revolutionaries.”
Gipe also admitted to offering extra credit to students who attend protests and create opposition at right-wing rallies.
“I post a calendar every week … I’ve had students show up for protests, community events, tabling, food distribution, all sorts of things … When they go, they take pictures, write up a reflection — that’s their extra credit,” Gipe said.
Along with the Antifa flag that he hung up in his classroom, the pro-communism teacher also maintained a poster of Chinese Communist Party leader Mao Zedong on his wall.
After the video was released, the Natomas Unified School District released a statement on Wednesday assuring that proper steps would be taken to “place the teacher on unpaid leave and fire the teacher,” according to the New York Post.
“Yesterday, a group released an undercover video that has been covered extensively. In this video, a teacher at Inderkum High School was recorded sharing his educational approach that is disturbing and undermines the public’s trust,” the district wrote. “The district is aware of the approach of the interview and the editing used to create the video. 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.”
“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.”
California Superintendent Chris Evans, who is presiding over the situation, told Fox News he is taking legal steps towards firing Gipe but was unable to locate any reports from families about the teacher’s behavior.
“We’ve heard…a student or parent reached out to the school in the district and tried to share these concerns, but we have no such records of that,” Evans said. “So if somebody has a copy of an email or something that’s timestamped and dated, I want to see that.”
Nonetheless, Evan notes that an investigation into Gipe revealed professional conduct violations back in 2018. Evans further states that he saw one picture that may have violated state law on political activities.
“We’re going to have to teach our administrators to walk the walls with their eyes and look for the content on the posters and not just the fact that they exist,” he said.
In the midst of the controversy, the school district conducted a school board meeting where parents slammed Gipe and the school board, but, unfortunately, the board proceeded to shut down the meeting because it “was no longer safe.”
“We were only supposed to give people 20 minutes to speak,” Evans said. “The board made the decision that they wanted to hear people out, and as time went on, the energy in the room increased…and then it reached the point where it was no longer safe.”
