Barbara-Bush-Death-Celebrating Professor Demands "All White Editors Resign From Power Positions"

Authored by Grace Gottschling via Campus Reform,

An English professor is demanding that “white editors resign,” saying they should “hand over the positions of power” because merely holding such positions is “f**k up enough.”

California State University, Fresno professor Randa Jarrar, who previously made headlines for giddily celebrating the death of Barbara Bush, made the provocative declaration Tuesday in a tweet responding to controversy surrounding an allegedly racist poem.

“At some point, all of us in the literary community must DEMAND that white editors resign. It’s time to STEP DOWN and hand over the positions of power. We don’t have to wait for them to f**k up. The fact that they hold these positions is f**k up enough.”

Jarrar’s outrage appears to have been sparked by a recent controversy about a poem published in The Nation that has been called insensitive to minorities and the disabled community.

The poem, “How-To” by Anders Carlson-Wee, includes the lines “Don’t say homeless, they know / you is” and “If you’re crippled don’t / flaunt it. Let em think they’re good enough / Christians to notice.”

Jarrar has called for the specific resignation of Stephanie Burt, a poetry editor for The Nation, tweeting that Burt “erases and violently silences [people of color].” 

“Stephanie has said some hurtful shit about George W Bush and has hurt Arab American poets in my community,” Jarrar claims. “I ask that she resign.” 

Burt has not resigned, but she did publish an apology along with Carmen Gimenez Smith, another Nation poetry editor, on Smith’s Twitter account.

“As poetry editors, we hold ourselves responsible for the ways in which the work we select is received,” the apology stated. “We made a serious mistake by choosing to publish the poem ‘How-To.’”

“When we read the poem we took it as a profane, over-the-top attack on the ways in which members of many groups are asked, or required, to perform the work of marginalization,” the apology added. “We can no longer read the poem in that way.”

The apology doesn’t seem to be good enough for Jarrar, who replied “resign” to the apology tweet.

Although Jarrar made her Twitter account private shortly after receiving criticism for mocking former First Lady Barbara Bush’s death, copies of her recent tweets were obtained by Campus Reform.

“Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal,” Jarrar posted in April. “F*** outta here with your nice words.”

“I'm happy the witch is dead,” Jarrar added in a later tweet. “Can't wait for the rest of her family to fall to their demise the way 1.5 million iraqis have. byyyeeeeeeee.”

Jarrar later added that she would “never be fired” due to her tenured position. This statement sparked an online petition calling Fresno State to fire Jarrar. The still-active petition has been signed by nearly 90,000 people at time of publishing.

A spokesperson for Fresno State told Campus Reform that the school does not comment on the personal opinions of faculty, but did add that “in this instance, the view expressed does not reflect those of the University.”

Campus Reform reached out to Jarrar for comment on her latest tweet, but has not received a response.

Idiocracy, in the flesh. And that's alot of flesh. Someone else mentioned "15 minutes of fame." I would disagree. It's getting their 15 minutes of shame. The trouble is, these folks have no shame. Literal blowhards waiting for their Captain Ahab ..

The thing is, the disgust is so profound, so pervasive, I find the only antidote to counteract the insanity is to make bad jokes and puns at their expense, sharpen the harpoon, and keep on rollin .,

Next !

Heh speaking of which, I believe Hannity jumped the shark with the Rosie chronicles ..

Holy shit !

There is A WAR AGAINST THE WHITE RACE GLOBALLY and behind these 'useful idiots' are the Zionist international financiers working ruthlessly and relentlessly toward their ZIONIST GLOBAL DICTATORSHIP of total control of all the world's people and natural resources.

THIS is how the Scum behind the curtain do it, one nation at a time -  fascinatingly shocking facts, see how (((they))) do 'it':

"Being fat, drunk and stupid"—I think you've just described the entire American public, whose obesity rate is now #1 in the world and whose public school system is owned and run to dumb down the herd. 

In one sense this lady is right, but she just isn't being specific enough. Let's be specific and not stupid now. Who is causing the divide and conquer between whites and blacks in America? Certainly, it is the white man. Be more specific. Okay, is the the white man who wears the secret black hat of hate. And what do you call these people? 

You call them Zionist Jews. They are a Satanic cult of ignorant evil. And yes, they do need to be absolutely removed from not just America, but from the world. Every one of them. They even created feminism as an idea to steal more of your tax dollars. Hey there white man, hey there black man—you're being fucked by the white man who wears the secret black magic black hat of hate behind your back. This poor lady has been fucked too. Only, she's been fucked so much, she can't see just who the real fuckers were. 

The Zionist Jews have made you all the fat stupid cows in America which they are daily destroying as they live off your minds and bodies. 

Being fat, drunk and stupid is indeed a a helluva way to go through life... as you're led to your slaughter, you dumb fat 9ll'd cows in America. Until you know exactly what the Protocols of Zion are, until you know exactly what Benjamin Freedman lays out in his 1961 speech, until you have studied Christopher Bollyn in depth as to why the Zionist Jews murdered you on 911 and why—you're just a fat drunk stupid herd of fit for slaughter cows in America. Study up and stand up. For soon you're going to have to decide to either be a fat drunk stupid cow—or real men and women that take the Satanic Judaic evil forever off the World Stage. 

That fat blind lady up there is what has been made of you yourself, as you sit down year after year in front of Satanic Judaic television. Better to defend defend yourselves by turning off the television and educating all those in your reach. Then you'll finally know just who to really point the finger too and who to really give the finger too.

Thanks for the mention of Christopher Bollyn. I'd never heard of him. Back in the early days I studied 9-11 extensively as the entire event had so many holes in it and the official narrative was an absolute joke. At some point I got to exhaustion and was satisfied that I had enough knowledge of the event to demonstrate to any rational and sane human being that the event was not what people thought it was. The last book I read on the subject was Judy Wood's - Where Did The Towers Go. She raises some very pertinent and critical questions as well as answers many. I don't agree with her entire synopsis but she is definitely in the right area. The towers did not collapse they turned to dust and disintegrated. Planes crashing into buildings, fires and demolition charges do not cause a building to disintegrate and turn to dust, and thats exactly what happened to both of those two towers on that day.

 

Will check out Mr. Bollyn. Thanks again for dropping the name.

I'm a liberal and I have no problem with anyone celebrating the death of anyone in the Bush family. They are a scourge pure and simple, and have been for generations.

That said, this fat female white beotch doesn't get that she has almost has much entitlement as a white man, certainly in the last 25 years she has had MORE.

I've dealt with young hot blonde women telling me how oppressed they are. The left has gone nuts. I'm out, and I'm not joining the right either. I'm just OUT. The democratic party is scaring all the straight white men out. F them.
