This is liberalism:
A Fresno State professor called former first lady Barbara Bush an “amazing racist” who raised a “war criminal,” and expressed no concern that she could be fired or reprimanded for her outspokenness on social media.
Randa Jarrar, a professor in Fresno State’s Department of English, expressed her displeasure with the Bush family within an hour after the official announcement that Mrs. Bush died Tuesday at the age of 92.
“Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal,” Jarrar wrote on Twitter. “Fuck outta here with your nice words.”
By around 10:21 p.m., Jarrar made her Twitter account private. The Fresno Bee took screen shots of her tweets when the account was public.
Jarrar also changed her Twitter bio, removing the titles of her books and instead writing, “Currently on leave from Fresno State. This is my private account and represents my opinions.”
The university confirmed Jarrar has been on leave all semester.
On Amazon, negative reviews for her books began to appear, apparently in reaction to her tweets.
Fresno State, roughly three hours after Jarrar’s initial tweet about Bush, sent out a statement by Castro that addressed the outspoken professor.
“On behalf of Fresno State, I extend my deepest condolences to the Bush family on the loss of our former First Lady, Barbara Bush,” Castro says in the statement. “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.
“Her statements were made as a private citizen, not as a representative at Fresno State.”
Castro also added: “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.”
The university is still looking into the matter, according to spokeswoman Patti Waid.
I’m not a big fan of the Bush family, but this is disgusting. Barbara Bush never did anything to deserve to be treated like that. Civilized people don’t behave that way. It is indecent, insensitive and offensive. But Jarrar is:
So she will get a pass. But make no mistake: THIS IS WHO THEY ARE!
These are the people who want to control a government that controls everything. This woman’s job is teaching young people.
When people show you who they are, believe them.
