Fresno State Professor Sparks Outrage Over Tweet Calling Former First Lady Barbara Bush “Racist”
Randa Jarrar, a Fresno State Professor remained unapologetic over a tweet in which she stated that now deceased former First Lady Barbara Bush was an “amazing racist” and had raised a “war criminal.” No matter what anyone thinks about a President, this lack of respect for someone who died is despicable. And then to be so arrogant about it…
“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.” Randa Jarrar
The former First Lady passed away on Tuesday at the age of 92. Barbara Bush was accessible, kind, and worked hard to help promote the cause of literacy in the United States.
Jarrar’s hatred makes her sound like a member of the Westboro Baptist church. Living in that much hate has got to be draining.
By the way, she has set her Twitter feed to private, as all cowards do after they’ve stepped in the social media cow pie.
The attempt to distance themselves from her rhetoric fell extremely flat, as she purports herself as a faculty member, not a private citizen. And yes, there are ways a tenured professor can be fired. If they do not censure her, if they let this go, then people should not send their students to this school. #BoycottFresnoState.

I have always had great respect for Fresno State, but if @randajarrar and the institution value hate speech through the mockery and celebration of Americans dying, I refuse to associate. Not another penny from me. @JosephICastro and @Fresno_State ought to be ashamed.

.@Fresno_State faculty member, @randajarrar, had her racism on full display and they did nothing, so why would anyone expect anything different as she gloats over the death of Barbara Bush? Despicable pic.twitter.com/OTyRUT8mpz

Not good enough. If you all think public and private behavior don’t intersect in the world we now live in, then you are stunningly oblivious, and unfit to be teaching any kids. Randa Jarrar is a verified Twitter use who represents your brand and your integrity, deal with it.

Randa Jarrar is a prime example of everything that is wrong with American universities today 👉🏻 she is a vile commie Leftist who hates America but lectures ( indoctrinates ) young minds in campus. Her arrogance is second to none when challenged… pic.twitter.com/hZBRTp5Ti4

Behold the face (and body) of modern American progressivism, Prof Randa Jarrar (@randajarrar), of that pinnacle of higher progressive learning, @Fresno_State. The left promotes her as she trashes Barbara Bush.
Plz keep it up, lefties, this won’t motivate the GOP base–I promise. pic.twitter.com/rjOrsWLGAg

Randa Jarrar seems to think this is a non-issue and basically predicts your response is going to be “meh – free speech”. She is a verified user proudly aligning with your University. Nice to see that you have instilled your ‘core values’ so deeply into your staff. pic.twitter.com/erIP11ztbP

Sorry Fresno State but when Randa Jarrar defended her vile, disgusting tweets, bragging about her salary and her tenure, she ABSOLUTELY made her statement as a faculty member. cc: @randajarrar #RandaJarrar https://t.co/0niBfzeOOt
