Fresno State Announces Fate Of Professor Who Celebrated Barbara Bush’s Death

On Tuesday, Fresno State University announced that the professor who celebrated the death of Barbara Bush and who promoted acts of domestic terrorism will face no disciplinary actions from the university.

Fresno State President Joseph Castro said that after reviewing the “facts,” the university will take no disciplinary action against Jarrar because she did not violate any university policies and she was acting in a “private capacity.”

Castro concluded his statement by writing, “I want to thank all of you for sharing your views and opinions.”

Castro failed to address multiple other issues surrounding Jarrar, including her interference with Arizona State’s crisis hotline, her comments celebrating plane hijackers, and her calls for violence against specific people.

Jarrar sparked controversy last week when she tweeted: “Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal. F**k outta here with your nice words.”

Jarrar, who later bragged that she couldn’t be fired because of tenure, also tweeted: “PSA: either you are against these pieces of s**t and their genocidal ways or you’re part of the problem. that’s actually how simple this is. I’m happy the witch is dead. 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: “All the hate I’m getting ALMOST made me forget how happy I am that George W Bush is probably really sad right now.”
