Liberal College Professor Calls Barbara Bush "Racist", Cheers Her Death

Update: The Fresno Bee reports Lynnette Zelezny, provost at California State University, Fresno, on Wednesday called Jarrar's comments "disrespectful."

Zelezny also disputed Jarrar's assertion that she has tenure protection and will never be fired.

Jarrar, who describes herself in her Twitter profile as an Arab-American and a Muslim-American woman, is on leave from Fresno State this semester.

Most of the reactions to the news of the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush were what you’d expect - expressions of grief and admiration for a woman who was not only married to a President, but the mother to another. Most, but not all, reactions were sympathetic.

One in particular, however, was morbidly celebratory.

An English professor at Fresno State University did not share people’s sympathies, she gloated about how happy she was that Mrs. Bush had passed.

Randa Jarrar, professor of English at Fresno State, tweeted, “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.”

Inevitably, Jarrar received blowback for her grotesque comments.

But rather than express regret for her callousness, she reveled in the disgust of others.

In the face of criticism that tagged her employer, Jarrar bragged about how much money she makes and that she “will never be fired” because she has tenure.

The President of Fresno State, Joseph Castro, moved quickly to distance himself from the comments of Jarrar, expressing condolences to the Bush family and adding that “Her statements were made as a private citizen, not as a representative of Fresno State.”

Further, Castro slammed Jarrar by saying her comments “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.”

After bragging about her salary and tenure, and restating her pride in her statements on Mrs. Bush’s death, Jarrar protected her tweets by making them private.

I hate the BUSH CRIME FAMILY; I will only say that I'm sorry that all the rest of them aren't in coffins beside her.

Their actions have directly contributed to the deaths of millions of people, and that being what it is, it's pretty hard to feel bad for them.

Given a choice, I'd gladly send them over to Iraq, to let the Iraqis deal with them, just as I'd offer to send American criminals to Russia, if Putin wanted to restart the Gulag.

She is now on a leave of absents, as of today.....

Which means, as a Tenured Professor, she will be payed to sit on her fat ass at home, for at least two years, unless she returns. 

Because that's how long it takes to fire a Tenured Professor.

Lets hope she's fired, like the Bush Clan......

Once someone dies it's bad form to shit talk.

Barbara had little or nothing to do with anything Bush Daddy or Junior did.  So bad form all around.  Even if it is something that is true like Stalin it's best to stick to criticizing what they did rather than say "I'm glad they are dead" even if you think it.

There is a spiritual bankruptcy court we all go through when we die.  I theorize we talk more about what they left us with rather than what they were before they died. Thus my preference is to not shit talk too much.

She needs some help reading her contract with the school-  she's a bit confused on how insulated she really is;

Unfortunately,  she's in California, so she'll prolly continue to draw a paycheck without having to come into work.

Then again, I don't tenure applies to Jabba The Hut in California.....

Funny that Fresno State is trying to divest her-  uh, no dude-  this chick is now the face of your school, good luck with that.

Prescott Bush, the OG if you will attempted a military coup of the US in the 1930's. The general they picked to lead the military end of it went to Congress and exposed it. The Bushes are a crime family of one of the highest orders. Close ties to the Nazis. Enjoy, this is a great documentary on it https://youtu.be/hTdx6vEUtIA

PS this professor is a idiot and has no idea how the Bushes opperate, but then again we probably only know a shred of their actual corruption.

The Bush cabal? A crime family? Well, duh. Still bad form to trash talk even if you wish they would burn in hell for eternity.

Roger Stone though had some real nice thoughts on the grand old dame...

“Barbara Bush was a nasty drunk. When it came to drinking she made Betty Ford look like Carrie Nation #blottoBabs,” said Stone. “Barbara Bush drank so much booze, if they cremated her … her body would burn for three days.” “She said far worse things about me,” Stone told TheWrap. “Barbara Bush was a vindictive, entitled, mean spirited woman. May she rest in peace.”

I absolutely believe it.

It is soooo hard to feel bad about this. This woman KNEW exactly what her husband and son were doing. And the many many human beings that have been murdered. GHW Bush, I believe had everything to do with the execution of JFK, present at the book depository the day the motorcade went by. That execution forever altered the course of America for the worst. 

But thats the thing about Americans... We make our criminals President's, Vice Presidents and to head up other gov agencies when they should be in PRISON . 

SHE KNEW......

Randa Jarrar (Laugh Track Deafening !!!)

This is one of those ( so many ) that put up the front of being proud of their massive obesity and abrasive manner which eventually ends their lives prematurely. That alone is ill beyond words.

Lets face it, Bush is a war criminal, traitor, murderer of JFK and a CIA op since Yale. But we are civilized in our dissent. His wife died. Have some minor respect here.

Wrong 

Contempt is productive. It accomplishes everything. It makes folks listen as you non-randomly shit on stoopid-heads

The only regret is the inability to find an appropriately insulting level of contempt for these diseased sub-humans

There is no “spiritual bankruptcy” at death. But there are superstitious cowards afraid to call a spade a spade

lol...one of his best lines...paraphrasing, "I'm the President of the United States now. I don't have to eat broccoli."

Now, I like broccoli occasionally but you gotta hand it to a man who reaches the pinnacle saying "You know what? Fuck that shit! I don't like it, I never have liked it and I don't give a damn who dislikes me now that I've let the world know I can't stand friggin broccoli in my mouth and I refuse to eat it now."

That speaks to me. But I'm weird that way ;-)
