University responds after Muslim professor cheers Barbara Bush’s death: ‘I’m happy the witch is dead’

Randa Jarrar, a self-described Muslim who’s a professor at Fresno State University, gleefully cheered the death of former first lady Barbara Bush, tweeting: “I’m happy the witch is dead and I can’t wait for the rest of her family to fall to their demise.”

Jarrar called Mrs. Bush an “amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal” while dancing on her grave.

Jarrar also mocked the grief of the Bush family, saying she couldn’t care less about all the backlash she stirred up on Twitter. “All the hate I’m getting ALMOST made me forget how happy I am that George W. Bush is probably really sad right now,” she cooed.

Jarrar has since turned her Twitter account private, but not before showing the world her true colors.

In response to people who called for her firing, Randa Jarrar bragged that she can’t be fired from her tenured position, where she earns $100,000 a year, and dared Twitter to try.

“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 bragged.

According to her bio, Randa describes herself as an Arab-American Muslim who grew up in Kuwait and Egypt, and moved to the United States after the Gulf War.

Three hours after her inflammatory tweets, Fresno State issued a statement by the university’s president, Joseph Castro, where he expressed condolences for Mrs. Bush’s passing but did not rebuke Jarrar’s hateful comments.

“We share the deep concerns expressed by others over the personal comments made today by professor Randa Jarrar, a professor in the English Department at Fresno State,” Castro said. “Her statements were made as a private citizen, not as a representative at Fresno State.”

Fresno State likely will not fire or discipline Jarrar, maybe because they fear a lawsuit backed by CAIR (a Hamas-backed terrorist group, according to the Center for Security Policy).

For the record, a lawsuit claiming anti-Muslim discrimination did not work out for “Clock Boy” Ahmed Mohamed, whose case against the city of Irving, Texas, was dismissed in 2017.

Many on Twitter expressed the disgust at Jarrar’s racism and hatred that Fresno State failed to. One person wrote: “Seek professional help, you classless cretin.”

Another chimed in: “Must be sad being such a shriveled, bitter soul.”

One Twitter user summed it up best when he wrote: “Barbara Bush is loved and lived to be 92. This is what jealousy of realizing those things won’t burden you looks like.”

Randa Jarrar’s Twitter profile says she’s “on leave” from Fresno State, as she has been all semester.

Barbara Bush’s grandson Jeb Jr. tweeted a touching drawing of his grandmother entering heaven, where she’s greeted by her daughter Robin, who died of leukemia at age 3.
