This college professor is happy 'racist' Barbara Bush is dead

Jarrar 3

California State University, Fresno professor Randa Jarrar celebrated former First Lady Barbara Bush passing away Tuesday evening by calling her an "amazing racist" and boasting she was "happy the witch is dead". "F*** outta here with your nice words", Jarrar tweeted. "All the hate I'm getting nearly made me forget how happy I am that George W. Bush is probably really sad right now", she cooed.

Jarrar's faculty bio says she's an award-winning novelist who grew up in Kuwait and Egypt before moving to the USA after the Gulf War.

Facing an onslaught of criticism, Jarrar doubled down, tweeting, "All the hate I'm getting nearly made me forgot how happy I am that George W. Bush is probably really sad right now", along with a smiling emoji. Jarrar also appeared to brag about her salary and job security as a tenured professor.

Randa Jarrar is a professor at Fresno State University in California.

On her website, Jarrar advertises various writings and books, which includes a work about "finding the divine in BDSM", as well as "a collection of stories...featuring journalists and kids and queers and pregnant girls and birds who are arrested for spying". Now a whole lot of people-including some occasional critics of political-correctness-run-amok on campus-think the university should fire her.


She continued responding, writing a separate tweet, "If you'd like to know what it's like to be an Arab American Muslim American woman with some clout online expressing an opinion, look at the racists going insane in my mentions right now".

"I think the views of a professor don't necessarily reflect the school". I make 100K a year doing that. The original tweet had more than 2,400 replies and Jarrar sent dozens of additional tweets, most in reply to the positive and negative responses she received. I will never be fired. "I will always have people wanting to hear what I have to say".

While she indicated that professors had a responsibility to use free speech properly, she wouldn't say whether it was appropriate for Jarrar to curse at and taunt others on social media. Fresno state chief academic officer Dr. Lynnette Zelezny said the university is following faculty policy in the handling of this matter with associate professor Randa Jarrar.

Three hours after her inflammatory tweets, Fresno State issued a statement by the university's president, Joseph Castro, where he expressed condolences for Mrs.

Castro stressed that Jarrar's comments were "as a private citizen", and don't represent the university. "We share the deep concerns expressed by others over the personal comments made today by Professor Randa Jarrar, a professor in the English Department at Fresno State". A Fresno State spokesperson answered questions regarding those statements.
