    Default Fresno State University professor who called Barbara Bush a racist holds job

    A Fresno State University professor who celebrated the death of Barbara Bush in a profanity-laced rant on Twitter will not be disciplined, the university's president said in a statement late Tuesday.

    In a note to the "campus community," Joseph Castro said that English instructor Randa Jarrar's comments about the late first lady were "insensitive, inappropriate and an embarrassment to the university," but "are protected free speech under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution."

    Castro added that Jarrar would remain on leave through the spring semester, "which she had previously requested before this incident."



    Jarrar also said she was happy that "the witch is dead" and bragged that she wouldn't be fired for her remarks because she had tenure.

    "I make 100K a year doing that," she told one Twitter user. "i[sic] will never be fired. i[sic] will always have people wanting to hear what I have to say."

    I don't think she should be fired. Her comment speaks for her but that's not a reason to lose her job.

    I'm hearing that what she said was a joke. I didn't get the punch line, let's put it that way. It looks like the rest of the United States didn't either. I'm almost in tears right now," said Cipollaro.

    The issue is freedom of speech, not our emotions.

    no it's not. nobody questions her right of free political speech.
    Why the university tolerates it is the question given it's
    "insensitive, inappropriate and an embarrassment to the university,"

    If she had used the N word, the Leftists would scream for her firing. But somehow, her Hate Speech is PC.

    University's are hostage to the radical left. No reason to condemn her speech without sanctions

    Apparently some of the University's big donors are reconsidering their charitable contributions. They're not happy about her keeping her job.

    The University undoubtedly receives federal funding to some extent, therefore could technically be seen as representative of "government." The First Amendment protects speech from being censored by the government. Therefore, their decision to not fire the vulgar troll is legally correct.

    That being said, hopefully someone will continue to keep an eye on this professor and this story, because I imagine that internal discipline will be meted out.
