using a smartphoneThe California high school student who created an uproar after recording his teacher say insulting things about people in the military thinks his teacher should be fired.

El Rancho High School government teacher Gregory Salcido has been on administrative leave since the video went viral. Salcido, who also serves as an elected city council member in Pico Rivera, launched into an anti-military lecture when two of his students wore Marine garb to class. (See earlier story.)

"They're not like high-level thinkers," Salcido can be heard saying. "They're not academic people. They're not intellectual people. They're the lowest of our low, not morally. You know, I'm not saying they make bad moral decisions. They're not talented people."

Victor Quinonez, one of the students who wore a Marine sweater, recorded Salcido's comments.

"As soon as I started hearing him ranting about the military, I ended up taking out my phone, because he allowed us to have phones out, and I began to record," Quinonez recently told the Fox News Channel.

He says not everyone has been sympathetic to his story, as his family has received death threats.

"It makes me feel unsafe for my family and all," he admits. "I'm not so worried about myself. I’m just more worried about my siblings, my parents."

And Quinonez does not think this teacher should remain in the classroom.

"Now there are other students coming up, you know, telling their stories about what Mr. Salcido has done to them, has said to them," he relays. "So do I believe he should be fired? Yes."
