The principal put out a stern statement saying that the man had been relieved of his duties at Centennial High School.

A student gave Wilfon a copy of the video.

In the video, the substitute can be heard saying things like, “He bombed the [expletive] out of my country.”

The video shows the substitute ranting inside the classroom and using explicit language while around the students.

“When I was in high school, I was learning about Obama increasing drone strikes in my [expletive] country,” he can be heard saying.


Centennial High School Junior Tyler Rambusch called the environment “unhealthy.”

“I don’t think someone like that should be allowed in a school setting. He decided to compare Obama to Hitler and called someone the c-word in school,” he explained.
