OCC teacher received threats, left the state after video of her anti-Trump comments

excerpt:
An Orange Coast College teacher who told her students that Donald Trump’s election was an “act of terrorism” has received threats and has temporarily left the state.
News of the threats against Olga Perez Stable Cox came to light Monday, as hundreds of people turned out at the college to protest for and against her.
The professor, the union that represents her, and the college have received more than 1,000 emails, calls and Facebook comments – most critical of Cox, who a week after the election was recorded on video telling students in her human sexuality class that “we’re really back to being (in) a civil war.”

Others threatened her livelihood, some her life.
“You want communism, go to Cuba ... try to bring it to America and we’ll put a (expletive) bullet in your face,” read another email to her....
OCC college president, faculty union and academic senate take a stand:

Because that would be censorship, anon, and avoidance of the truth. With trump in power, i predict an active, shooting war has a high likelihood of occuring in the united states once again.

Yes, but your job is not to offend your students.

Don't laugh but the quagmire that 8:28 points out was created with liberal logic, you've done it to yourselves!
