Fresno State, investigating professor's Barbara Bush tweet, says tenure doesn't protect her

Jarrar 1 Fresno State, investigating professor's Barbara Bush tweet, says tenure doesn't protect her
Bennie Garza | 19 April, 2018, 00:00

"F*** outta here with your nice words", tweeted Jarrar. After thousands of Twitter replies blasted her first tweet and called for her removal from the school, Jarrar doubled down and tweeted from her verified account, "I will never be fired". She was hired by Fresno State in 2010.

Comedian Peter Coffin said, "Geez, I get it. Barbara Bush is dead".

But the would-be egghead's hateful tweets took the Internet by storm and were widely circulated before she locked her account.

"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", Jarrar tweeted, according to the Bee.

"PSA: either you are against these pieces of s- and their genocidal ways or you're part of the problem".

Jarrar also mocked the grief of the Bush family, saying she couldn't care less about all the backlash she stirred up on Twitter. I make 100K a year doing that.

Hours after the initial tweet Fresno State University President Joseph Castro issued a response that appeared to be an attempt to quell the rising fury on social media and distance the university from her comments.

Jarrar's faculty bio says she's an award winning novelist who grew up in Kuwait and Egypt before moving to the USA after the Gulf War.

She describes herself as an "Arab-American" and "Muslim-American". "There's a good reason why she's teaching at some third-rate school in Cali instead of being in the mainstream of Arab/Muslim intellectual life", added Charles Hoskinson on Twitter.

She even boasted of the outrage she was causing: "If you'd like to know what it's like to be an Arab American Muslim American woman with some clout online expressing an opinion, look at the racists going insane in my mentions right now". So far the university has not spoken directly with Jarrar, Zelezny said.

Dr. Eugene Gu, a resident physician at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and prolific Trump critic, told Jarrar to "stop".

Presented without comment: Randa Jarrar of Fresno State. Fresno state chief academic officer Dr. Lynnette Zelezny said the university is following faculty policy in the handling of this matter with associate professor Randa Jarrar.

Muslim Randa Jarrar, a professor at Fresno State University, cheered the death of former first lady Barbara Bush.

I'm not sure what "hard stand" means, but since the university did in fact already denounce Jarrar's comment, I presume Saavedra wants something more: discipline, perhaps termination.

Castro also added: 'Professor Jarrar's expressed personal views and commentary are obviously contrary to the core values of our University, which include respect and empathy for individuals with divergent points of view, and a honest commitment to mutual understanding and progress'.
