Union Threatens to Sue College Student for Recording Professor's Anti-Trump Rant

It all started when Orange Coast College Professor Olga Perez Stable Cox decided to use her podium to go on a bigoted anti-Trump tirade.

As the rant went on, a student in the class, Caleb O’Neil, had had enough and decided to hit record on his cell phone and post it on Facebook, which was then shared by members of the campus Republican group. Where it’s since been viewed over 18,000 times.


In the video, you can hear the professor call the election of Donald Trump an “act of terrorism,” and Trump himself a “white supremacist.” She also went after Trump’s cabinet, describing Vice President-elect Mike Pence as “one of the most anti-gay humans in this country.”

Since the election, we’ve seen the collective freak out by the Democrats over Donald Trump’s win.

The pearl clutching and safe space seeking have been ramped up to 100% capacity. Nowhere is this more prevalent than on America’s enclaves of illiberal thought that are the university campus. We who are not in college anymore can only imagine what these young adults are having to sit through regularly from instructors who can’t keep their counsel.

Now, O’Neil is learning just what happens to those who don’t adhere to the only acceptable way of thinking to leftists and anyone who has the gall to push back and expose the groupthink conditioning that is the university experience.

According to the local CBS affiliate:

Thursday night, the professor’s union posted a warning on its page. It condemned the student who recorded the video saying, “This is an illegal recording without the permission of the instructor. The student will be identified and may be facing legal action.”

“They wanted it to be known so that maybe we would get scared and take down the video. But to the union I want to say we are not gonna be doing that,” said Recalde-Martinez.

“The unions are acting like thugs, like bullies themselves,” said attorneyShawn Steel.

The attorney is also the Republican National Committeeman from California. He volunteered to represent the Young Republicans.

He said the student who shot the video is afraid he may be suspended or expelled with only a week left in the semester.

“Every student knows it. If you stand up to your professor, 90 percent of the time the professor’s going to punish you,” said Steel.


Be assured that while O’Neil may be one student exposing one professor, that there are many more professors and even more students who are experiencing the same things and have for a long time. Oh, the stories I’m sure we all could tell.
