Antifa teacher exposed for proudly indoctrinating students paid 3 years salary to resign
( Post Millennial )
The California teacher who was exposed in a 2021 Project Veritas report for attempting to radicalize his students into Marxist "revolutionaries" is receiving three years of salary in exchange for his resignation, after the school district said he would be fired.
According to KCRA3, the district agreed to pay Gipe three years of salary, or $190,000 in exchange for his resignation, a settlement between the two that was reportedly reached in January.
The payment was taxed, with the final payment amount made to Gipe totaling $100,390.90, and was broken into two checks.
Last September, parents of Inderkum High School in Sacramento called on the Natomas Unified School District to fire AP Government teacher Gabriel Gipe after he was caught on video discussing his strategies to indoctrinate his students, including flying an Antifa flag in his classroom and giving out extra credit for attending left-wing "community events."
"I have 180 days to turn them [students] into revolutionaries … Scare the f*ck out of them," said Gipe in the undercover footage filmed by Project Veritas, which was published in late August of 2021.
"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," he added.
Gipe, who identified himself as a member of Antifa, bragged to the undercover journalist about making a student feel uncomfortable.
"I have an Antifa flag on my [classroom] wall and a student complained about that — he said it made him feel uncomfortable," Gipe said. "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."
Throughout the footage, Gipe can be seen espousing views backing the Chinese Cultural Revolution, the genocidal socio-political movement launched by former president Mao Zedong, who Gipe displayed a picture of in his classroom. Gipe also had stamps with images of Josef Stalin, Fidel Castro and Kim Jung Un to mark student's school work this year.
"You need to retrain the way people think. So, the Cultural Revolution in the 60s was fixing the problem that came about after the economic one," Gipe said.
Gipe also said that he is not the only Inderkum faculty member with these beliefs, noting that three other teachers hold similar views. "There are three other teachers in my department that I did my credential program with—and they're rad. They're great people. They're definitely on the same page," Gipe stated.
Following the public release of the shocking footage, parents spoke up against Gipe and his ideology at a school board meeting, and Natomas Unified School District released a statement after initially ignoring the Project Veritas report, putting him on paid leave and claiming that the teacher would be fired.
"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 statement read.
Among the massive wave of criticism of the decision is Forbes journalist Erik Kain, who pointed out the teachers should just teach history without "pledging allegiance to antifa."
Teach your kids some history if you want them to be revolutionaries. Pledging allegiance to antifa is some dumbass nonsense. Was this teacher sixteen years old? pic.twitter.com/KNenXnhCHb — Erik 'daibo' Kain (@erikkain) August 10, 2022
