Randa Jarrar Can and Should be Fired [VIDEO]

An article by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FAIR) – an organization with which I generally agree and which is dedicated to free speech – detailed why it would be wrong to fire Randa Jarrar – a professor at Fresno State, who decided to garner herself some attention by denigrating former First Lady Barbara Bush not more than a few hours after Mrs. Bush passed away at the age of 92 from congestive heart failure. I disagree. Jarrar can and should be fired.

I don’t say this lightly, as I’m one of those libertarian leaning conservatives who passionately believes that the US constitution gives us the right to be pernicious yambags without fear of government prosecution, but Jarrar deserves to get booted out of her job – not because of WHAT she said, but because her presence now causes a disruption and reflects poorly on her employer. And as someone who believes that an employer should have the right to fire anyone for any reason, there are plenty of reasons to get rid of this heinous, Marxist landwhale.

1 – Randa Jarrar is a bad person. She’s a callous, evil, attention-seeking sow, who can’t put her political hatred aside for even a moment and who doesn’t have the human decency to acknowledge that this was someone’s beloved wife and mother, who had nothing to do with her husband’s foreign policy that she hates so much, and who dedicated her life to spreading literacy – something Jarrar should at least appreciate as an educator, but apparently can’t vomit enough bile.

This, in and of itself, is not a reason to fire someone, but what Jarrar very publicly says and does has an indelible effect on the school that employs her. That’s cause.

2 – Randa Jarrar is a conceited, self-absorbed, supercilious hemorrhoid, who thinks that by virtue having tenure (and being a loud, obnoxious, social justice zealot, as well as a “minority,” although there’s nothing minor about her morbidly obese bulk) she cannot be fired.

Au contraire, says her employer! Tenure doesn’t protect this rancid hog from the consequences of her words and actions. She certainly can be fired, and while she was on leave from the school and made the comments from her private account, she repeatedly gloated about her six-figure position at the school, her tenure there, and even tagged Fresno State in some of her abhorrent tweets as her employer. She dragged her employer into this.

Having a heartless, callous bully working on their staff and publicly bragging she cannot be fired reflects badly on the university as her employer. It’s not WHAT Jarrar said in her private account that matters; it’s the fact that her little rampage embarrassed the university – a place that relies on its reputation to attract more students. The content of her words is protected by the First Amendment. Her intentional link to her employer and repeated malicious messages that reflected poorly on the school are not.

3 – Randa Jarrar is an inconsiderate swine whose only goal is to promote her hatred, no matter how many people she harms.

In response to appalled replies to her tweets, Jarrar tweeted out a telephone number she claimed was her own, but which actually belonged to a mental health crisis hotline. That’s right – she directed her detractors to flood a mental health crisis number with calls, endangering the welfare and maybe the lives of people who truly needed help. Sorry, but that’s not protected by the First Amendment.

She knew publishing the hotline number as her own would flood it with angry calls. She didn’t care. She thought she was being smart.

Again, this is not about the content of Jarrar the Hutt’s speech, which absolutely is protected by the First Amendment, but rather about her embarrassing her employer and hiding behind the university to shield herself from the consequences of her actions.

It will reflect badly on the university, which apparently pays Jarrar a six-figure salary, and despite any differences students and their families have with the Bush family, I’m pretty sure the vast majority would find her words reprehensible. I certainly wouldn’t send my kids to a school that would retain such an odious human being – a person who actively wishes ill on a family that lost a beloved wife and mother.

And THAT is where the university would be justified in firing Jarrar.

Remember when the actions of a certain adjunct during social justice zealot protests at Mizzou caused a marked drop in enrollment and huge losses for the university? Melissa Click was subsequently shown the door, and the university still hasn’t recovered!

Jarrar is in a similar situation. If her actions cost the university enrollment, alumni money, and reputation, the school would be well within its right to fire her fat ass.

This is not about the content of her speech, and it’s not about the fact that she offended so many. It’s about the fact that her actions caused harm – both to people who may have been in a mental health crisis, trying to reach a professional, and to the school that employs her.

Sorry, Jabba. You can and should be shitcanned. Hard.

  • SFC D says:

    Tenure is not a license to be a disgusting, obnoxious asshole. This creature should be used as a classroom example of “failure as a human being”.

  • rbj says:

    Tenure is to protect free inquiry of thought, to pursue examining what might be controversial issues. It would, for example, protect the president of Harvard to ask why there are so few females in STEM without him losing his position.

    Oh, wait.

    Tenure is already dead.

  • GWB says:

    Damnit! Don’t put that sort of picture up top!

  • She moved to the US after the Gulf War. Which freed her native Kuwait.

    Though I doubt Saddam’s rape gangs would have been interested in her.

  • GWB says:

    who dedicated her life to spreading literacy – something Jarrar should at least appreciate as an educator
    Something which Jarrar evidently never benefited from, despite being an “educator”.

    And I disagree: this IS about the content of her speech. The content is what’s embarrassing to the university.

    • Nicki says:

      I gotta disagree. The content is protected, but the fact that she continuously pulled the school into it, even going as far as tagging them on Twitter to show how “protected” she was is what she should be fired for. If she was just some porky shrew who was Tweeting from her own account, she’d still be an appalling swine, but it’s her right. The fact that she kept pulling the school into her drama is what makes her fireable. Just my opinion. YMMV

      • Scott says:

        It is her right, as far as the 1st amendment prohibits the Govt. from limiting speech.. That doesn’t mean that an employer has too. regardless of whether or not she involved the school, they (or any employer) have every right to decide that her behavior does not meet their standards , and fire her for that. People constantly talk about the 1st Amendment as if it applies to everyone, but it does not, just the Govt.

        • Akil says:

          Her employer IS A GOVERNMENT INSTITUTION. That means it absolutely DOES have to respect her right to speak freely, at least under the circumstances set out by the Supreme Court in its jurisprudence on public employee free speech. Why can’t you people ever be bothered to do some actual legal research before you run your mouths online?? Or even just read the legal analysis of this case that FIRE and other civil liberties organizations have published (see, e.g., https://www.thefire.org/coalition-of-civil-liberties-organizations-to-fresno-state-first-amendment-doesnt-have-a-disrespectful-exception/)???

          Sorry, but the First Amendment simply does NOT have a “disgusting swine” or “bad person” exception. If you think that it does have such an exception, you’re profoundly ignorant of First Amendment law and the tenets of your own country’s Constitution. And if you think it *should* have such an exception, you’re a complete hypocrite on the issue of free speech, just like so many of your opponents on the Left—i.e. you want freedom for your own speech and for whatever speech you can stomach, but none for the speech that you despise.

  • Scott says:

    That skank is so nasty, the last time she want to the beach, some people called Greenpeace, and even they refused to push her back in the water!

  • Stephen Ippolito says:

    What an abominable, vulgar creature. Completely devoid of empathy for others. And hence no class.

    Interesting fact: If you look up the definition of “abominable” in any dictionary you’ll find a picture of Hillary Clinton.

    But if you look REALLY closely you’ll see that Hillary is holding up a picture of Lena Dunham – and if you get up really, really close and squint you can make out that Dunham is holding up a picture of this beast.

  • William says:

    Perhaps the university might emulate the Japanese corporation ethos, and – since she has tenure – simply give her an office with a desk, a chair, and a window to stare out of each day for as long is she lives. Even with tenure, she is not guaranteed a class to teach, nor support for papers she might write, nor any other recognition of her existence. They have found it a very effective punishment.

  • William says:

    I understand that such individuals are called “madogiwa zoku,” (window-seat tribe), by the way.

  • Stephen Ippolito says:

    I happened to be listening to Bill Bennett’s podcast a few nights ago.(Which I highly recommend).

    As most readers here would probably already know, Mr Bennett was Ronald Reagan’s Education Secretary and, later, HW’s Drug Czar. He adored Mrs Bush.

    Mr Bennett tells a story that at one stage he gave a press interview that President HW Bush took exception to and was embarrassed by and so was called to the Oval Office to explain himself.

    Walking in he was met by Mrs Bush who promptly punched him in the stomach!
    Love it: Loyal, down to earth and feisty. A great lady. A life well-lived.

    May perpetual light shine upon you Mrs Bush.

  • Van Knutson says:

    Well, its good to see she’s not starving to death

  • I didn’t know she was a trigglypuff.


  • uglykidmoe says:

    the fat fuckin skank should be allowed to say whatever she wants

  • Robert Arvanitis says:

    Her words have no effect on those who admired Barbara Bush.
    Let people like her speak and expose themselves to public scrutiny.
    Jarra’s paucity of intellectual output, obvious lack of self control, and idiscourse by mere finger gestures says it all.
    That right is all the condemnation she needs..

  • Juanita says:

    As a lifelong liberal who stumbled across this blog, I’ll state I find Jararr truly vulgar and offensive. You simply do not speak ill of someone who has just passed… and to put a pox on an entire family (I don’t care if it’s the Bushes — who deserve much scrutiny for their misdeeds) that is just plain hateful. And now Poppy Bush is in hospital tonight I wonder what hatefulness she’ll spew!!

    We all need to be extra mindful these days, about what we do and say…we can choose to go out on a limb and say incendiary words but ultimately we are each accountable for what we express. She was talking to *students* about throwing live grenades into someone’s home!! I’m not okay with that!! Her misrepresentation posting a suicide prevention hotline?!?! What if someone had killed themselves, unable to get through due to her *hilarious* prank?!?! No!! I’m sorry she does not get a free pass just because of her ethnicity, let alone having tenure. She’s actually doing harm for others in her cultural (Muslim) community who are already unfairly targeted for theoretically planning to incite violence. She disgraced the university a house of higher learning, all to get her jolly’s off (whatever it takes I guess in her case!) she’s made her bed now ….

  • Bill says:

    She does have a constitutional right to say repugnant things, but she doesn’t have a constitutional right to say them without consequence or as a university professor. Fire her and she can continue speaking her vulgar mind but not with a public salary.
