A UC Santa Barbara student alleges her black studies professor warned any “Ted Cruz-supporting 'tea baggers' to get the hell out of his classroom before he sent them home to their mother in a body bag.”

This was reportedly on the very first day of class last fall. The course, offered by Professor Otis Madison, was titled “The Obama Phenomenon.”
The student, identified as Alice Gilbert by the College Fix, says the quote is from memory but argued “there were other students with me in the class who can attest to them.”
“When Professor Madison made his comments in the very first lecture, I was taken aback and offended,” Gilbert said.
However, she claims she never complained to the university because the professor did not “target” her specifically and she wasn’t sure the school could do anything just because she was offended by something her professor said in class.
Now Gilbert is speaking out as part of the new social media campaign, “#MyLiberalCampus,” according to the College Fix.
“The effort, launched by the College Republican National Committee, strives to highlight the discrimination and intolerance conservative students face everyday on campuses nationwide. So far, more than 350,000 people have engaged in the conversation,” the report adds.
Gilbert recently appeared on "Fox and Friends" to talk about the incident:
