Republican Party of Orange County Encourages Members to Attend Trustee Meeting

The Republican party of Orange County encouraged its members to attend the Wednesday, April 5th Board of Trustees meeting. There were many, “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) community members in the crowd.

They jeered and booed CFE President Rob Schneiderman when he said that the union “is against any form of discrimination” and wants to work towards making Orange Coast College the “best learning environment for students in Orange County, regardless of their beliefs.” Later in the public comments portion of the meeting (1 hour, 08 minutes and 16 seconds), Biology professor Jan Goerrissen read a statement from colleague Dr. Gregory Russell. Professor Goerrissen said, “Data tells us that global warming is, unequivocally happening and it is human caused and there is no controversy at all surrounding evolution.” For this seemingly innocuous statement, he was booed by the Republican Party members in the crowd.

A day after the Board of Trustee meeting, Senator Moorlach (R-Costa Mesa) sponsored legislation (SB 677) which would allow students to video any class if they “suspect” a policy may be violated. This type of big brother approach to eliminating dissent is reminiscent of Chairman Mao Zedong’s Red Guard during the cultural revolution.
