Professor Olga Perez Stable Cox called Donald Trump a “white supremacist,” Mike Pence “the most anti-gay human being in the country,” and said “the election of Donald Trump was an act of terrorism.” A student said the teacher asked all Trump supporters to stand up so she could, “Show the class who to watch out for.”

But it is a student in her class, Caleb O’Neil, who was suspended for daring to record the Human Sexuality teacher’s unsolicited and over-the-top political propaganda.

The professor claims that she was a victim who received mean messages on social media after the video aired on the Bill O’Reilly show on Fox News.

As reported by the Washington Post,

“Her inbox and voice mail were filled with hundreds of threatening messages that referred to her as ‘libtard,’ ‘Marxist,’ ‘nutcase,’ ‘vile leftist filth’ and a ‘satanic cult member.’

The Orange Coast College “…ruled that they would be suspending Caleb for one full semester and one summer semester. Caleb will also have to write a 3 page essay on everything that happened with a separate apology letter for the professor, and if he returns to campus he will be put on Disciplinary Probation for a semester” according to a press release by Freedom X, who is representing Caleb in his appeal.
