Petition To Get Professor Fired Who Slammed Barbara Bush EXPLODES Online

This horrid woman thought she was invincible because of her tenured status at the University she teaches at, but she’s quickly learning that may not be the case after public outcry has nearly hit a fever pitch.

Mocking anyone who recently died is shameful, but what she said about former first lady Barbara Bush is absolutely unacceptable…

DailyWire reports:

A petition calling for the firing of a Fresno State professor who slandered former First Lady Barbara Bush as a racist in the hours after the announcement of her passing has blown up online, racking up over 38,000 signatures.

In the hours after Mrs. Bush death, English professor Randa Jarrar tweeted that Mrs. Bush was an “amazing racist,” adding gleefully that she was happy “the witch is dead.” She followed up the distasteful and inaccurate tweet by bragging about how much money she makes as a professor and how she can’t be fired because of tenure.

“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,” she boasted on Twitter.

“Remove Randa Jarrar from Fresno State University for Racist comments,” reads the heading of the petition, which was created by Patrick Hofsetter.

“Immediate termination of professor Randa Jarrar for racism and inflammatory comments regarding a former First Lady of the United States, Barbara Bush,” says the petition, adding a link to a Fox News post concerning Jarrar’s tweets about Mrs. Bush.

Fresno State administration distanced themselves from Jarrar and condemned her comments but stopped short of firing her.

Many free speech advocates have argued that while Jarrar’s comments might be reprehensible, she shouldn’t be fired, including Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro.

“Jarrar has a right to speak, and setting the precedent that professors should be fired for saying gross, atrocious or impolitic things seems like a serious problem,” Shapiro argued. “The governing legal standard for punishing a professor on campus is from the Supreme Court case Pickering v. Board of Education (1968); in that case, the Supreme Court declared that they had to weigh the state’s ‘interest in promoting the efficiency of its employees’ public services’ against whether the employee was speaking as a citizen rather than an employee, and whether the employee was speaking on a ‘matter of public concern.’ Both the Ninth Circuit and Fourth Circuit have supported broad rights for professors to speak on controversial issues.”

“If we’re going to call for freedom of expression on public university campuses, Jarrar’s speech is protected,” he added. “[D]umping her over a nasty tweet about Barbara Bush is beyond the scope of the First Amendment.”

    It may be protected under the first amendment which I personally spent 6 years defending. But, she’s rude, disgusting, clearly book educated and street stupid. Bad manners should not be teaching the youth of today. She’s entitled to her opinion no matter how much it stinks. She could have used better vernacular to voice it. Stay class low life jerk. Stay classy. And yes, she should be terminated.

    As much as I find her comments completely inappropriate and inaccurate, she does have a right to free speech. Even if it’s considered hate speech. My hope is that karma will have her way with this fat pig.

      I absolutely agree with you, if life would be that simple. There are protocols to follow, besides the known right. Without said protocols I truly do not believe she would be capable to step outside her house, as she would be the main dish on crude comments.
      Using said crude way to illustrate the point, farting is natural, all of us do it, but we know it is of bad taste to do it in public places, as doing it may even incite violent response from some.
      Lastly, don’t we all to the younger generation to teach them well in order to increase peaceful relations?
      Wouldn’t you agree?

    If she is a professor, then quit bitching about kids nowdays that they are not being educated when you have personnel like this doing the teaching. She “has the light on, but nobodys home”.

    While this disgusting woman has a right to free speech, what does it say about this University?? Most businesses have a Mission Statement that outlines it’s values. The fact they won’t fire her shows the values this teaching university does not have and is probably not a place taxpayer money shouldn’t go. Know I wouldn’t send my kid there.
