On Tuesday, a professor at Fresno State made highly outrageous comments celebrating the death of former First Lady of the United States Barbara Bush as she also took delight in the pain that George H.W. Bush is experiencing as a result of his wife's death.

According to her bio page at Fresno State, "Professor Randa Jarrar is an award-winning novelist, short story writer, essayist, and translator" and serves as the "executive director of RAWI, the Radius of Arab American Writers."

Jarrar's first tweet on Bush's death stated: "Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal. F**k outta here with your nice words."
Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal. Fuck outta here with your nice words.

Jarrar continued, writing: "PSA: either you are against these pieces of shit and their genocidal ways or you're part of the problem. 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. byyyeeeeeeee."

Jarrar went on to express how happy she was over Bush's death because she knew that Bush's husband was sad over her passing.

All the hate I'm getting ALMOST made me forget how happy I am that George W Bush is probably really sad right now https://t.co/HdOkzMH4LE
Later, responding to the outrage that she caused, Jarrar bragged about how much money she made as a professor and claimed that she will never be fired.
sweetie 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. even you are one of them! <3 https://t.co/AMx9onyMD9

Jarrar demonstrated a fair amount of arrogance, suggesting that people also notify the school's president of the incident because she doesn't think she will face any kind of repercussions for her actions.

LOL! Let me help you. You should tag my president @JosephICastro. What I love about being an American professor is my right to free speech, and what I love about Fresno State is that I always feel protected and at home here. GO BULLDOGS! ️

Fresno State did not respond to multiple requests for comment from The Daily Wire.

No doubt there are women in here with these same feelings.

While this professor certainly has freedom of speech, I hope she gets fired for her arrogance of nothing else.

She certainly had some “intense opinions” I’ll call them. I’ll simply say I disagree with 97% of what she said. That war criminal part has definitely crossed my mind before.

Another college to NOT consider for my twins. The list is about 2 pages long now.

Right now the college put out a statement that she basically made the statements when she was a private citizen, but she brought up that she was a tenured college professor making 100k per year and will never be fired.

It’s big deal enough that you commented on it. But if Michelle Obama died and some conservative professor said the same type things, you would be all over it and making it a big deal.
Wrong is wrong.


Quoting jessilin0113: Big deal.
