An anonymous YouTube video appeared online showing an Orange Coast College professor referring to President-Elect Trump’s November win as, “an act of terrorism.”
A professor at the Costa Mesa, California community college, Olga Perez Stable Cox, shared her radical opinions about the recently held presidential election, where she voiced her disdain with President-Elect Trump’s win.
Cox went on a lengthy rant about Trump being a “white supremacist” and that Vice President-Elect Mike Pence is, “one of the most anti-gay humans in this country.” She continued her speech telling students that, “the people who caused the assault are among us,” describing Trump supporters as if they are enemies.

The professor told her students that they voted in the majority and then discussed how relieved she is to live in progressive California, which is “one of the best states.”
She closes out her rant by saying, “one of the things I’m doing to cope is to look for positive messages.”
Transcription of the video provided by the Huffington Post is below.
“…white supremacist and a vice president that is one of the most anti-gay humans in this country. And so we are in for a difficult time but again I do believe that we can get past that. Our nation is divided, we have been assaulted, it’s an act of terrorism. One of the most frightening things for me and most people in my life is that the people creating the assault are among us. It is not some stranger from some other country coming and attacking our sense of what it means to be an American and the things that we stand for and that makes it more painful because I’m sure that all of us have people in our families and our circle of friends that are part of that movement and it is very difficult – we are way beyond Republicans and Democrats and we’re really being back to being at civil war – I don’t mean that in a fighting way but our nation is divided as clearly as it was in Civil War times. And my hope is we will get leadership to help overcome that. I will go over some coping skills but before i do that I want you to know that the optimist in me, first of all, we are the majority, more of us voted to not have that kind of leadership, and we didn’t win because of the way our electoral college is set up but we are the majority and that’s helping me to feel better. I’m relieved that we live in California it is one of the best states and I love that and I love living here but i’m especially proud of our legislature who did put out a message – one of the things i’m doing to cope is to look for positive messages and look for some hope that’s the optimist in me-and californai legislative leaders did put something… and these are things you can find….”
According to truthrevolt.org, the Huffington Post talked with OCC sophomore Joshua Martinez, the President of the Orange Coast College Republicans.
Martinez responded to the incident saying, “The video, shot during a class on human sexuality, was submitted anonymously to us and we wanted to share it to raise awareness on this issue. We want other students to know that we will help protect them against the constant leftist indoctrination we are experiencing in class by exposing behavior like this.”
A lawyer representing the student organization sent a letter to OCC president Dr. Dennis Harkins requesting that the college take action against Cox for her “inflammatory comments.”
The Coast Federation of Educators union has since threatened action against whomever shot the video. They posted on the Orange Coast College Republicans Facebook page saying the person who shot the video would be identified and that legal actions may take place.
The student who recorded the video is now facing threats of expulsion from the college with only one week left in the semester.
