Conservative talk show host Pete Santilli lauded the parents in Sacramento, California, for actively opposing the indoctrination of their children to communism. The move follows a Project Veritas report that exposed a local high school teacher who keeps an Antifa flag in his classroom and encourages students to protest.

Parents showed up in droves Wednesday night, Sept. 1, at the intense Natomas Unified School Board meeting to demand justice for their children and call for the firing and even criminal prosecution of Inderkum High School teacher Gabriel Gipe.

“What happened last night is, first of all, truly representative of the sentiments that we Americans – it could be Republicans and Democrats – have. Nobody wants communism in our school system,” Santilli said during the inaugural airing of “The Pete Santilli Show” Thursday, Sept. 2, on Brighteon.TV.

In the Project Veritas video, Gipe said that he intends to radicalize students into supporting Marxist ideas by using the public school system as an avenue to incentivize them to participate in fringe extracurricular events.

“I have 180 days to turn them [students] into revolutionaries,” Gipe said. “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.”

Aside from the Antifa flag, the video also caught Mao Zedong posters in Gipe’s classroom.

Gipe allegedly also purchased rubber stamps depicting Josef Stalin, Fidel Castro and Kim Jung Un with insensitive phrases. The district said it found Gipe had used those stamps to mark student work on at least 13 different days.

No end in sight in battle against communism

Deb Jordan, Santilli’s co-host in the 30-minute program, thinks that the parents still have a lot of work to do.

“I don’t think it’s over yet. They’re indoctrinating children now at an earlier age, and then we’re sending them off to these universities where they’re going to be indoctrinated anyway,” Jordan said. 

“I think it comes back to the parents. The responsibility is going to be laid at the feet of the parents to either get their kids out of the school systems or make sure that their kids have the full armor of God and the United States Constitution before sending them off to universities.”

Natomas Unified School Superintendent Chris Evans sent a letter to the community Wednesday saying the district will be taking the proper steps to terminate the teacher.

The district said it is taking the legally required next steps to place the teacher on unpaid leave and remove him from the staff. It said that the evidence gathered so far shows the “teacher violated the district’s political action guidelines.”

Santilli felt that wasn’t enough. “The school board has to be held accountable, the superintendent, the principal. They all need to get fired,” he said.

All signage and posters have reportedly been removed from the classroom, and the district said it believes the best course to rebuild the learning environment is a fresh start.

“There is no excuse for communism on American soil,” said Natomas resident David Aria. “The principal, the vice principal and the board has to go.”

Parents seek full investigation and changes in policy

Dozens of angry parents are concerned with what their children are being taught.

“Not only does his termination need to be taken effective immediately but I believe a criminal investigation needs to happen,” said one parent during public comment.

“This does not begin and end with him. He was enabled for years. Complaints were filed and nothing was done,” said another parent, Richard Gilbert.

Parents like Monique Hokman called for a full investigation into the teacher and district and changes in policy. They are also concerned with claims made by Gipe that he is not the only teacher that is teaching his viewpoints inside the classroom. 

“I have a problem with people teaching our kids things without our knowledge,” said Hokman. “The one teacher is not just the problem. We would like to see some steps that are going to protect all our children now and all the ones that are coming up in the future.”

The meeting was abruptly stopped in the middle of public comment. A lawyer representing the district said the meeting was stopped because of a lack of decorum and would be rescheduled for a later date. Board members left the meeting out of the back side of the building.
