Students and Faculty at Orange Coast College Demand Removal of College Republicans
What liberal bias?
The College Republicans have exposed instances of conservative students being mistreated and people don’t like that.

Students, faculty demand OCC get Republicans ‘out of our face’
Students and faculty stormed the Orange Coast College administration building Monday to protest the release of public records and demand that the administration end its “neutrality” on political issues by removing the College Republicans.
The protest formed in opposition to the OCC College Republicans chapter, which released emails obtained from a public records request showing Professor Jessica Alabi telling OCC President Harkins that she would “stand up” to the club if he did not. The documents also revealed that Alabi later prevented several Republican club members from attending one of her events on campus because they were deemed a threat to the students’ “safe space.”
The CRs have demanded an investigation into Alabi’s behavior, which fits into a wider pattern of faculty hostility toward the club ever since it made national news by released a recording of one professor’s classroom rant calling Donald Trump’s election “an act of terrorism.”
The ensuing firestorm of negative publicity divided the campus, with faculty members issuing a statement calling the audio’s release a “politically motivated act” and then subsequently honoring the professor, Olga Stable-Cox, as “Faculty Member of the Year” in an apparent snub of the CR chapter.
The student who recorded the lecture, Caleb O’Neil, was even temporarily suspended for violating an obscure, rarely-enforced policy prohibiting students from recording their professors in class without prior approval.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
I do hope the administration tells these fragile progs to pound sand. If they need a safe space so badly that they can’t abide the presence of a differing opinion they should retreat to an ultimately safe space – Mommy’s basement!
Colleges and universities are supposed to be places where students are exposed to a wide range of ideas, not indoctrination centers for leftist agendas.
the administration wont – they’re the ones who named the odious professor as teacher of the year and suspended the student.
BTW, that suspension went a lot farther than that until it was exposed and they backed down. It amounted to a humiliating Maoist struggle session on the student’s part just to be allowed back in classes.
This place needs to suffer the same consequences as Mizzou.
Who’s next on their hit list?
These particular professors honestly believe that their opinions and struggles actually matter, when in fact, they are of minimal importance to the rest of the world.
Did you realize that they first professors, were never taught by professors?
