A fed-up mother tore into the Natomas Unified School District board in Sacramento, Calif, over a teacher exposed in an undercover video discussing Antifa and saying he had “180 days to turn” his students into left-wing “revolutionaries.”
The board announced Wednesday that it plans to fire the teacher who was outed by the undercover journalism organization Project Veritas, as parents voiced their own concerns at the meeting.
One such parent had her daughter, who was apparently in this teacher’s classroom, come with her to the lectern. The 17-year-old student stood to the rear of her mother as she lit into the school board.
“The reason why my daughter is standing behind me is because my job as her parent is to protect her from anybody that has ill will towards her,” the concerned mother said. “So being that this is her first year at this high school that is world-renowned… the first time my daughter tells me and she goes against my wishes to come out of a classroom that’s disruptive to her well-being, I have an issue. I am very articulate, my children are very well-read. They speak their opinion, they make sure that they are clear in what they do and do not like and for the fact that my 17-year-old daughter had to come to me and said, ‘Mom you don’t understand, let me explain,’ this means that in two weeks, in 13 days, he was allowed to change my daughter’s mind about some fascist crap that y’all have let in this school.”
“I’m tired, this is ridiculous! I’m from Texas, this does not go on in Texas,” the woman continued. “So to think that my very sound-minded daughter would go against me and my wishes, and our values in our home to be able to go and support this man and he is putting her in harm’s way, what the hell are y’all doing?”
The woman reiterated her exasperation, before letting it be known in no uncertain terms that the teacher must go.
“I’m tired. How long does it have to go on before somebody says something? How long?” she asked. “What are you going to do? That’s the question. Get him out of here. We don’t f**king care about this boy, he got to go!”
Other parents denounced the teacher as well.
“He is not a teacher, he was trying to teach our students about his Communist beliefs,” said Nicole Howard, according to the Sacramento Bee. Her nephew was reportedly in the teacher’s class.
“Parents are already freaked out over inappropriate sex ed and critical race theory, and now they find out that their kids are being indoctrinated and recruited by a teacher,” said Marilyn Jackson, president of Pray4SafeSchools.
The Natomas Unified School District released a statement on the teacher’s fate.
“Yesterday, a group released an undercover video that has been covered extensively,” the statement said. “In this video, a teacher at Inderkum High School was recorded sharing his educational approach that is disturbing and undermines the public’s trust. 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 teacher, Gabriel Gipe, can be heard in the video bragging about having an Antifa flag in the classroom and saying, “I have 180 days to turn them into revolutionaries… Scare the s— out of them.”
He reportedly paid homage to China’s Mao Zedong and used stamps with images of Josef Stalin, Fidel Castro, and Kim Jung Un to mark the students’ work.
