US: Leftwing bigot praises the death of former lady Barbra Bush

(Fresno)  We all heard the sad news that Barbara Bush passed away last night after making the very brave decision only 3 days ago that she would no longer seek medical treatment and had instead chosen the option of "comfort care. I never knew the woman or much about her, but I fully respect her for making that call.

Randa Jarrar, Professor at Fresno State’s Department of English

So imagine my surprise when I find that Randa Jarrara Fresno State professor called former first lady Barbara Bush an “amazing racist” who raised a “war criminal,” and expressed no concern that she could be fired or reprimanded for her outspokenness on social media.

A few seconds on the net tells me that Miss Jarrara was born in 1978 in Chicago is the offspring of a Greek mother and a Palestinian father who went to live in Kuwait and was apparently living there when Saddam Hussain invaded it in 1990. It was Barbara’s Bush’s Husband who was US President at the time who sent in American troops to liberate that country, whereupon the Jarrara family returned to the US.  Miss Jarrara who openly refers to herself as a Muslim owes her freedom to the decisions that Bush senior made in 1990 and yet not only has she attacked a woman who has done more for underprivileged children than most people , who has been recognised with 29 honorary degrees  for her charity work. And who donated the entire proceeds from a bestselling book to charity. She took great pleasure on the pain her husband must be feeling.

Unfortunately for Miss Jarrara who feels that her right to free speech entitles her to character assassinate somebody based on incorrect information, is now on the end of a backlash that she rightly deserves.  Within hours she has had to make her Twitter account private, she has taken leave and her college is facing pressure to dismiss her. I doubt she will be able to show her face in public for a long time and her reply to all the flack she is getting:
“I work as a tenured professor. I make 100K a year doing that. I will never be fired. I will always have people wanting to hear what I have to say,”
“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 crazy in my mentions right now,”
Just what is about these people who claim to uphold high moral standards and promote themselves as human right champions, but as witnessed so many times are the biggest racist intolerant bigots going.
