Fresno State Has Some News For Bush-bashing Professor Who Thinks She Can't Be Fired

A professor of English at a California public university expressed happiness over the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush this week, publicly stating that she wants the rest of the Bush family to die and stating her joy that Bush's son, former president George W. Bush, is "probably really sad right now". "F*** outta here with your nice words", the professor tweeted. She is no longer an asset to the school.

Bush's death and then acknowledged that there are "deep concerns" over Jarrar's tweets.

'Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and fantastic racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal.

In response, the school distanced itself from Jarrar, stating that since her tweets were written as a "private citizen" they do not reflect the goals and mission of the university. Her social media accounts have since been made private. "We acknowledge the severity of her statements and take very seriously the concerns expressed throughout the community", Jarrar's tweets calling the Bush "an fantastic racist", a "witch", and wishing her family to "fall to their demise" have prompted some to call for her termination.

But whether or not Jarrar will be fired, Zelezny said, will depend on an investigation that will review the facts in the case.

Zelezny said the college extended its deepest condolences to the Bush family, who just lost its matriarch on Tuesday, and said people were "understandably" upset by professor Randa Jarrar's comments. She even tagged the university's president, and practically dared her critics to do the same if they didn't like what she was saying. She is now on a personal leave of absence for the spring semester.

Castro added: "A professor with tenure does not have blanket protection to say and do what they wish".

One can certainly argue that Jarrar has a right to express her opinion under the First Amendment. Jarrar fired back, offering up Castro's Twitter handle.

In a Wednesday morning news conference, Provost Lynnette Zelezny said the university had put in place "additional security", a common action "when we feel that there's a spotlight on us".

Fresno State told Breitbart News that Professor Jarrar has "requested a leave" for the spring semester and will not be teaching classes.
