A radical Fresno State University professor who celebrated the death of Barbara Bush now has unleashed a racist rant against white editors.
“At some point, all of us in the literary community must DEMAND that white editors resign. It’s time to STEP DOWN and hand over the positions of power,” tweeted Randa Jarrar.
“We don’t have to wait for them to f— up. The fact that they hold these positions is f— up enough.”
In April, her attack on Barbara Bush drew attention.
“I’m happy the witch is dead,” Jarrar tweeted. “Can’t wait for the rest of … her family to fall to their demise the way 1.5 million Iraqis have.”
Jarrar’s newest rant was documented by Campus Reform, which explained her “discriminatory demand” came following a controversy over a poem published in the liberal magazine The Nation.
She demanded that the magazine’s poetry editor, Stephanie Burt, resign, claiming that Burt “said some hurtful s— about George W Bush and has hurt Arab American poets in my community.”
The Fresno Bee reported, “Just when it seemed like infamous Fresno State professor Randa Jarrar might’ve learned her lesson and stopped making controversial posts on social media, she did it again.”
In April, she quickly made her tweet about Barbara Bush “private” after accusing the former first lady, who died at the age of 92, of raising a “war criminal.”
“Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who along with her husband, raised a war criminal,” Jarrar wrote. “[Expletive] outta here with your nice words.
“PSA: either you are against these pieces of sh-t and their genocidal ways or you’re part of the problem. That’s actually how simple this is,” she wrote.
Her university quickly denounced the tweet, and radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh said people of this kind are “demented” and “deranged.”
The university later decided not to punish Jarrar, determining her message was protected private speech.
Jarrar calls herself an “Arab-American” and “Muslim-American.” After the Bush tweet, her book on Amazon immediately started getting poor reviews.
