The Antifa-supporting California teacher who bragged about having “180 days to turn” his students into left-wing “revolutionaries” is set to be fired after he was outed by the undercover journalism organization Project Veritas earlier this week.
“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,” said a statement from the Natomas Unified School District.
“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,” the district’s statement continued.
The teacher, Gabriel Gipe, revealed during the undercover interview how he uses his position to radicalize students in an attempt to churn out left-wing foot soldiers who stump for counterrevolution.
He also talked about some of the ways he radicalizes his students, including displaying symbols of oppressive regimes and intolerant political movements on the walls of his classroom like China’s Mao Zedong, whose “Cultural Revolution” over a 10-year span targeted young Chinese for radicalization that led to the deaths of an estimated 2 million people.

He also talked about how he would shame his students into compliance with his views.
“I have an Antifa flag on my [classroom] wall, and a student complained about that. He said it made him feel uncomfortable,” Gipe says in the video.
“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 this is antithetical to,” he said.
According to the school district, officials removed the imagery but also found what they described as even more disturbing materials.
“Additionally, the teacher, using his own money, purchased a series of rubber stamps. 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,” the statement said, adding that Gipe used them to mark classroom work as complete.
Among other things, Gipe said he gave students extra credit for attending left-wing protests that sometimes would become violent, thereby putting them in dangerous situations.
Some of the far-left direct actions he gave students classroom credit for attending involved activities that became unsafe. Background: Gabriel Gipe & his wife were at the Sacramento capitol antifa riot in 2016 in which multiple people were stabbed.

In taking their action, district officials cited a number of policies that Gipe was allegedly in violation of, including using his position to push prohibited political activity.
The district also included a note of apology to “parents, students and other staff – NUSD is sorry that this reached this level of disruption.”
In an interview Wednesday evening with Newsmax TV’s Steve Cortez and Jen Pellegrino, former Trump 2020 campaign official and California attorney Harmeet Dhillon discussed Gipe’s situation and explained that the sentiments expressed by him are rife throughout the public school systems in the state, starting with the heads of the teachers’ unions.
“What you’re seeing is the mentality that permeates the California Teachers Association,” Dhillon said, adding that the same unions pressured the state government to keep public and private schools closed for the past “year-and-a-half” to in-person education due to the COVID pandemic, though schools in most other states reopened months ago.
“Don’t believe the spin and the propaganda you’re going to be hearing out of what’s happening in Sacramento,” where Gipe was teaching, Dhillon continued, “as some kind of aberration.”
“It is not an aberration. I’m here to tell you I have encountered teachers like this in the Berkeley Unified School District and it has been happening for years in California, and it’s been happening in other states as well,” she said.
Later, Dhillon said that Gipe was arrested in 2016 “in a riot” with a Berkeley public school teacher for “attacking police.”
“That’s what we’re talking about here. This is not a fringe,” she added.
