College Honors Professor Who Called Trump’s Election an ‘Act of Terrorism’

A California professor who received national attention after she called the November 2016 election of Donald Trump an “act of terrorism” was honored by her peers as “faculty member of the year,” according to a Monday post by the conservative Campus Report website.

A select panel of Orange Coast College’s faculty and staff chose Olga Perez Stable Cox, an instructor in psychology, for the honor. However, she turned down the award.

One of Cox’s students recorded the instructor’s anti-Trump rant back in December 2016. She slammed the then-President-Elect as a “white supremacist,” and blasted Vice President-Elect Mike Pence as “one of the most anti-gay humans in this country.”

The same student was later suspended by Orange Coast College over the incident. He was reinstated days later after a public backlash.

The college’s College Republican group defended the student since he exposed the professor’s tirade. Earlier in March 2017, the former chairman of the club was targeted with graffiti on campus, which called him a “fascist.”
