College Students at an ultra-liberal college are claiming the colliege hired investigators to attempt to intimidate and silence college conservatives. Here is a snippet from the article featured on Libertarian Republic:
Orange Coast College (OCC) in Costa Mesa, California has become a political hot bed since the 2016 election, and the trend doesn’t appear to be ending any time soon.

Campus Reform (CR) is reporting that OCC, following pressure from left-leaning activists and faculty, has hired an “independent” off-campus investigator to do some digging into the school’s College Republican club in what is being called a “fact finding” mission to determine whether or not the club had ever violated any campus policies during its two year existence.
OCC College Republican President Emeritus Joshua Recalde-Martinez contacted Dean of Student Life and Services Mike Morvice, who is responsible for overseeing campus clubs, with his concerns following his learning about the “investigation,” reports CR.
“I was recently informed that their [sic] were complaints that have been filed against the OCC Republicans this past semester that may have manifested into some sort of investigation,” Recalde-Martinez wrote, asking Morvice for any information he could provide, reports CR.
“Outside of the initial inquires made in the Fall 2016/Intersession 2017 and OC Human Relations listening sessions from the Spring 2017, I am not familiar with any investigations involving clubs/student organizations taking place at this point in time,” Morvice replied in an email correspondence obtained by CR.
CR reports that Recalde-Martinez later emailed College President Dennis Harkins with the same question, including this time the emails between College Republican members and requests that they participate in the “investigation.” He also reminded Harkins that the Board of Trustees had previously called for an end to the investigation of a professor for her anti-Trump tirade during class.
This time, Harkins answered the question, telling Recalde-Martinez that “the investigation is in response to a discrimination case,” but that it would be “inappropriate for me to provide any additional information other to say the district often uses outside investigators for this kind of complaint,” according to CR.
