Professor’s rant about the president-elect captured on video. Fox News video. The human sexuality teacher, Olga Perez Stable Cox, called Mr. Trump’s election “an act of terrorism.” “Our nation is divided. We have been assaulted. It’s an act of terrorism,” she told the students. She added, “One of the most frightening things for me, and most people in my life, is that the people who are leading the assault are among us.”
One student was so offended by the speech he recorded it with his cellphone. The teacher also criticized Mr. Trump’s Cabinet picks, advisers and the vice president-elect. “A white supremacist and a vice president that is one of the most anti-gay humans in this country,” she said.
“At this point it’s not even education anymore, it’s indoctrination,” said Josh Recalde-Martinez, a member of the school’s Young Republicans club.
The group filed a formal complaint about the professor’s rant. Another student complained about the teacher on RateMyProfessors.com. “I felt censored and bullied if I did not agree with her opinions,” the student wrote. cbsnews.com
