A California college student was suspended for revealing his professor’s ridiculous bias. Now, he’s punching back.
Yesterday, Andrea Ruth covered the story of a student at Orange Coast College, Caleb O’Neil, who was suspended for filming his professor’s anti-Trump rant:
The professor, Professor Olga Perez Stable Cox, calls Trump a “white supremacist.” She calls Mike Pence “one of the most anti-gay humans in this country.” She calls Trump’s election an “act of terrorism.” She assumes all her students agree with her and says “we are the majority.” She says she will go over “coping skills.”
One of those coping skills includes adding 2-3 more words to her name. “From now on, instead of Professor Olga Perez Stable Cox, I will be called Professor Olga Perez Stable Suarez Humbert-Gillers Cox.” Nah, I made that last part up.
For publishing this rant, Mr. O’Neil was
praised for revealing an issue with the faculty suspended for a semester and ordered to write an essay about why he was such a bad boy.
Guess what? Now he’s not only appealing the suspension, but threatening a lawsuit:
19-year-old Caleb O’Neil will appeal.
The Orange Coast College freshman said Wednesday that he [will] file a lawsuit in federal court if his appeal is rejected.
“We think this is a clear example of unconstitutional viewpoint discrimination that targets conservatives and we’re going to challenge it,” O’Neil’s attorney, Bill Becker, said at a news conference in Costa Mesa, according to CBS Los Angeles.
Becker told the Orange County Register that the suspension “is an attack by leftists in academia to protect the expressive rights of their radical instructors.”
These people need to market themselves better. Set up a fund. I’d donate.
To be fair, I’m not quite sure what the fella expected when he signed up for a “human sexuality class” taught by a Professor Olga Perez Farias-Smith Williams Gutierrez Walker Unstable Cox, or whatever her name is.
