Olga Perez Stable Cox, Orange Coast College Psychology Professor, Attacks Donald Trump's Election as an 'Act of Terrorism' (VIDEO)

This woman goes off on a really objectionable, unhinged rant.

“She’s using her power as a teacher who gives grades, with a captive audience, to basically scare and shame students,” said attorney Shawn Steel, who on behalf of the school’s College Republicans filed a complaint with Orange Coast College on Nov. 30.

“It’s alarming. It’s scare-mongering. It’s irrational. It’s a rant. And it doesn’t belong in the classroom,” said Steel, a past chairman of the California Republican Party...
