A California professor verbally assaulted the late Barbara Bush on Twitter this week. The liberal English teacher mocked her critics after the attack went viral.
“Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal,” Fresno State University professor Randa Jarrar wrote on Twitter.
People were horrified by the tactless, cruel comment. Instead of apologizing, Jarrar continued her mocking tone.
“I work as a tenured professor. I make 100K a year doing that. I will never be fired. I will always have people wanting to hear what I have to say,” she tweeted.
Her social media accounts are now private.
American universities are laughably biased, but Jarrar’s views are extreme even by modern liberal standards.
“A professor with tenure does not have blanket protection to say and do what they wish,” Fresno State University President Joseph Castro said.
“We are all held accountable for our actions… Professor Jarrar’s expressed personal views and commentary are obviously contrary to the core values of our University, which include respect and empathy for individuals with divergent points of view, and a sincere commitment to mutual understanding and progress.”
Jarrar is clearly enjoying the negative attention. Her comments became increasingly over the top and bitter as her Twitter war raged on.
“PSA: either you are against these pieces of s*** and their genocidal ways or you’re part of the problem,” she ranted.
“That’s actually how simple this is. I’m happy the witch is dead. Can’t wait for the rest of her family to fall to their demise the way 1.5 million Iraqis have.”\
Jarrar’s foul words probably aren’t enough to get her fired. She’s expressing her own political view outside of the classroom.
A lot of people like saying shocking things online. People are talking about Jarrar now, she’s getting more attention than she has in her entire life.
