Calif. university at odds over professor's Barbara Bush rant

University President Joseph Castro denounced the "horrible" and "disrespectful" tweet from English professor Randa Jarrar, according to the Fresno Bee. Not because I want Jarrar to be proven right in her arrogant claim that she can never be fired, but because she's a flawless advocate for liberalism.

When asked if Castro, the university president, wanted to fire her, Zelezny waffled, saying he had not used those exact words, but that "what he wants is for us to move quickly and decisively with the processes we have in front of us, which we are".

Jarrar talks about having the right to free speech in one of her tweets.

Fresno State Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Lynnette Zelezny said Wednesday that the incident is under review, and that they are taking it very seriously. "We are all held accountable for our actions".

"A professor with tenure does not have blanket protection to say and do what they wish", he said on Wednesday.

Another user added: 'If you're a student in one of Randa Jarrar's classes please do the right thing and boycott her until she is forced to resign.

Zelezny also commented on Jarrar's tweet bragging that she can't be fired. That might seem nasty, but I'll remind you that Barbara Bush wasn't a Democrat, so there's an entirely different set of rules.

She has since locked her account, and Fresno State responded. "Does tenure mean you technically can't be fired?" What it does not protect them from is an employer's freedom to decide they are bad for their brand. I want everybody to see how hateful and dimwitted it really is.

People from all sides of the political spectrum put their differences aside to honour a beloved woman who served her family and country extremely well.

Following significant backlash, Jarrar tweeted: "All the hate I'm getting nearly made me forget how happy I am that George W Bush is probably really sad right now".

By that account, Jarrar still has a long way to go to succeed. Mrs.

People found other ways to strike back at her, though.

It is unclear if the online threats factored in Jarrar's decision to pull out of the event.

Jarrar is the polar opposite.
