It’s about time.
We constantly hear about left wing students making outrageous demands. Now some College Republicans are making a very reasonable one.

Republican students protest at board meeting, demand trustees protect political diversity on campus
In a rare move, a throng of Republican students upset at ongoing harassment they face on campus took their complaints to the ultimate authority — the board of trustees.
Some two dozen people — many of whom students — converged at the Coast Community College District board meeting en masse last week to voice concern at the discrimination they face at their school, asking for measures to protect them from discrimination based on their political diversity and ideological beliefs.
As the parade of students spoke, applause and high fives echoed through the room during a meeting that was charged with high emotion.
Many were also there to protest the fact that an instructor at the school, Olga Perez Stable Cox, who told her human sexuality class that Donald Trump’s election was an assault and “act of terrorism,” recently earned the faculty of the year award.
Signs including “flunk Olga” were held by some in the audience, and others wore bright-red Make America Great Again and Trump hats.
Joshua Recalde-Martinez, a conservative student who’s been targeted with online death threats and graffiti vandalism, was the first of many students to speak at the meeting.
“This is not a left or right issue, this is a common-sense solution to a problem which springs from extremist partisan feelings from either side of the political spectrum against the other, and sadly those who advocate against these amendments seek to only allow further discrimination on college campuses throughout the district,” said Recalde-Martinez, president emeritus of the OCC College Republicans.
