indoctrination (human brain)A political commentator says a California college professor should be punished for telling her students that the election of Donald Trump as president was "an act of terrorism."

Orange Coast College professor Olga Perez Stable Cox also told her class: "We have been assaulted." Cox, who immigrated to the U.S. from Cuba when she was ten years old, also described Vice President-elect Mike Pence as "one of the most anti-gay humans in this country."

One of her students recorded the rant – and that video was later posted to the Internet by the school's college Republicans.


Derryck Green is a researcher and political commentator with Project 21 (The National Leadership Network of Black Conservatives).

"It's just another example of the Left, in terms of academics, violating their responsibilities as teachers," he tells OneNewsNow. "They're not there to indoctrinate people; they're not there to do any type of electioneering; they're not there to intimidate students for who they may have voted for or policies that they may have supported."

FOX News doesn't mention if the school is considering reprimanding Cox, but Green contends she needs to be punished.

"I think the school has a responsibility to maintain its academic and moral credibility to reprimand this teacher publicly so other teachers don't get the idea or get in the habit of following in this teacher's footsteps," he states.

The local teachers' union is threatening to have the student who recorded the rant punished, but Green says they have no authority to do so.

According to a recent report by USA Today, students both for and against Professor Cox's actions have demonstrated on campus. That same report suggests Cox may have left the state to escape criticism she has received via email, social media, and telephone.
