In yet another case of “attack conservatives, be applauded” in academia, a California professor who denounced the election of President Donald Trump as “an act of terrorism” was named “Faculty Member of the Year” by her campus colleagues, according to Campus Reform.
Doug Bennet, executive director of college advancement at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, told Campus Reform that a committee of college employees made the recommendation to give the award to Professor Olga Perez Stable-Cox.
“The selection is made via a committee that consists of faculty, staff, and administrators and is based on a rubric that takes into account a variety of factors,” he told Campus Reform.
Joshua Recalde-Martinez, president-emeritus of the school’s College Republicans group, said the committee members’ decision showed they had no problem with the professor’s speech against Trump.
“The fact that the faculty chose Professor Cox for the Faculty Member of the Year award speaks volumes to how blind they are about what she did last semester,” he said according to Campus Reform.
Caleb O’Neil, the student who recorded Stable-Cox’s classroom rant, was suspended in February for the remainder of the school’s spring semester and its summer semester, but planned to appeal the discipline.
Oddly enough, Cox declined the “Faculty Member of the Year” award, which came with a chance to serve as commencement speaker at the school’s graduation. Bennet said she did not give a reason for turning it down. Campus Reform said it had been unable to contact her.
Maybe she had a realization that her doing so would so marginalize Republicans on campus that they might not even go to the graduation.
But probably not.
