After facing a nationwide backlash, the Natomas Unified School District paid a teacher three years’ salary to resign after he was secretly recorded professing his allegiance to antifa and saying it was his goal to turn his students into “revolutionaries,” records show.
In exchange for leaving his post at Inderkum High School and not fighting his prospective firing, officials in January agreed to pay Gabriel Gipe $190,000, according to settlement records the district provided in response to a California Public Records Act request from The Sacramento Bee. The payout was taxed, and the final checks the district cut totaled about $100,000.
Gipe’s annual base salary was roughly $60,000.
Whether he plans to teach again is unclear, but the settlement bars the district from discussing details of Gipe’s separation with any potential new employers. Officials may only confirm basic details of his employment such as his salary, the dates he worked there and the Jan. 7, 2022 date that he resigned.
Gipe resigned from the district four months after a conservative group known for undercover sting operations published secretly recorded video of him saying that he had 180 days to “scare the s—” out of his students and turn them into “revolutionaries.”
Amid a national feud over what should be taught in school, the September 2021 video from Project Veritas ricocheted around the internet, led to a raucous school board meeting and reportedly inspired extremists — the Proud Boys among them — to target Gipe and his home.
The district announced within days that it planned to fire Gipe and began compiling a dossier outlining the case against him. Those records — totaling more than 1,300 pages — detail what the district said was Gipe’s inappropriate teaching style and his basic failure to prepare students to pass an exam that would earn them college credit.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
