On Tuesday, a professor at Fresno State made highly outrageous comments celebrating the death of former First Lady of the United States Barbara Bush and taking delight in the pain that George H.W. Bush is experiencing as a result of his wife’s death.
According to her bio page at Fresno State, “Professor Randa Jarrar is an award-winning novelist, short story writer, essayist, and translator” and serves as the “executive director of RAWI, the Radius of Arab American Writers.”
Jarrar’s first tweet on Bush’s death stated: “Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal. F**k outta here with your nice words.”
Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal. Fuck outta here with your nice words.

Jarrar continued, writing: “PSA: either you are against these pieces of shit and their genocidal ways or you’re part of the problem. that’s actually how simple this is. I’m happy the witch is dead. can’t wait for the rest of her family to fall to their demise the way 1.5 million iraqis have. byyyeeeeeeee.”
