Fresno State Holds Press Conference to Address Hateful Muslim Professor Who Cheered Death of Barbara Bush (VIDEO)

As previously reported, Fresno State Associate Professor, Randa Jarrar cheered the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush on Tuesday from her verified, ‘blue checkmark’ Twitter account.

Earlier Tuesday, a spokesman for the family confirmed former First Lady Barbara Bush passed away at the age of 92.

The hateful professor at Fresno State cheered Mrs. Bush’s death then doubled down and wished for the ‘rest of the Bush family to fall to their demise.’

It is these types of vile leftists who are teaching the youth today.

Fresno State released a statement addressing Randa Jarrar’s tweets late Tuesday evening.

Even worse, Jarrar also posted a phone number to a mental health hotline claiming it was her own so the hotline was inundated with calls, potentially blocking people who really need the service.

Other vile tweets from Randa Jarrar surfaced Wednesday which set Twitter ablaze.

In a January 2018 tweet provided by The Daily Wire, Jarrar wrote, “I can’t wait for the old white guard of literary writers and “critics” to die. Their time is f*cking up, too.”

On Wednesday, the controversy surrounding Randa Jarrar’s appalling tweets ballooned after Fresno State was inundated with phone calls and emails from angry Americans demanding the university answer questions about the professor.

Provost Lynette Zelezny gave a press conference regarding Randa Jarrar’s tweets Wednesday morning and took questions from reporters.

“Please know the university is taking this matter very seriously and the incident is under review,” Zelezny began.

The Provost confirmed Jarrar is currently on a leave of absence for the spring semester of 2018. She previously requested the leave of absence.

One reporter asked Zelezny if Jarrar’s job is in jeopardy.

“Is the goal to remove her from the university?” one reporter asked.

The Provost gave a generic answer and didn’t exactly confirm they were looking to fire the professor but stated they are going through strict procedures.

Another reporter addressed her tweets taunting people with claims she is tenured therefore can never be fired.

Zelezny confirmed that just because a professor is tenured doesn’t mean they can’t be fired.

“There are certainly situations where a tenured professor can be fired,” Zelezny said.

Because Jarrar is tenured, they will have to go through certain procedures to address the union protecting the professor.

While the university encourages the free flow of information and people to express themselves under their 1st Amendment rights, the Provost confirmed Fresno State does have a policy when it comes to social media behavior, however she didn’t elaborate on the specifics.

Another reporter asked Zelezny if Jarrar’s hateful behavior spilled over into her classroom. (We know the answer already).
