OCC student suspended after filming teacher saying Trump’s election was ‘an act of terrorism’

An Orange Coast College student who secretly videotaped his instructor making anti-Trump statements was suspended from school and told to write a letter of apology as well as a three-page essay about the incident. The college suspended Caleb O’Neil for the current semester and the summer term, saying he violated a Coast Community College District policy prohibiting recording someone on district property without that person’s consent.

“It is my hope that this experience will lead you to truly think through your actions and the consequences of those actions when making decisions in the future,” Victoria Lugo, interim dean of students, wrote in a Feb. 9 letter to O’Neil, whose video clips of instructor Olga Perez Stable Cox in December went viral.

  1. So what happened to the instructor ??? When are these teachers,instructors and professors going to learn to keep their opinions to themselves ???? Shut up and do your jobs !!

  2. these professors are sucking the common sense out out the students.Go to school smart as a whip, graduate dumber than a rock. Professors should not be allowed to profess their own personal feeling about many things and politics is one. OK to discuss the different ways to use a fly for fishing.Colleges and universities are dumbing down our students and young people and they in turn become dumb adults that vote that way.

  3. This is outrageous? Where is the freedoms of the student to not be confronted with this propaganda ? How can this College get away with this? the student should have every right -I bet they get Government funds to run this Propaganda in schools? Cut off the funding if they want there Anti American bull shit? see how few student attend?

    OCC should fire that teacher for her/his teaching to our youth of UNAMERICAN political statements to the students. Certainly puts a black mark on OCC no matter what the political affiliation is of your instructors. Your funding should be removed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Students? Where the hell are the parents . They should be up in arms over this professor. She is the biggest part of the problem. I think he should sue their asses off especially that dink of a student advisor or whatever left wing nut job he runs in that lunacy factory.
