Remember Fresno State professor Randa Jarrar?
To give you a refresher, Jarrar popped up on Twitter literally celebrating the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush, and cheering on the fact that former president George W. Bush is sad.
It was a horrid moment, especially when she bragged about the fact that she would suffer absolutely no professional fall out for it. While I’m all about someone having their free speech, I am also all about a state-run entity having standards that include not viciously celebrating the death of good people because of their political leanings, but I digress.
Jarrar has since locked her account after all of her braggadocio about her position and its security. Her Twitter bio now reads that the account is a private one, and her opinions are her own.
However, Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra managed to look into her Twitter feed further and found some highly disturbing things Jarrar has said in the past that indicate a woman filled with so much hatred, bigotry, and meanness that it reads like the screeds of a sick person.
From the Daily Wire:
“I can’t wait for the old white guard of literary writers and ‘critics’ to die. Their time is f**king up, too,” Jararr wrote.
In another tweet, Jararr writes: “Coming up: a bunch of f**king white women.”
In another tweet, Jararr showed her arrogance, telling another account to get the “f**k outta here with your white feminism. I said don’t at me b**ch. I’m a professor…”
Jararr, who is Muslim and is a major supporter of the Palestinian state, also wrote, “we are sooooo much cooler than Israelis, don’t at me b**ch.”
But while these are mean-spirited, and frankly, unbecoming of a grown adult, the biggest problem came when Jarrar gave out the number for mental health hotline pretending it to be her own:
Perhaps the most problematic tweet from Jararr the administration must now address is one from last night in which she posted a phone number she claimed belonged to her but is actually the number to Arizona State’s 24-Hour emergency crisis line.
An official who works on the crisis hotline told The Daily Wire they have been receiving an extremely high number of calls due to her tweet.
Now shes posting mental health hotlines and creating a massive potential calling issue for a service some may really need. This is horrible. @randajarrar needs help @Fresno_State she is now potentially hurting services students needs pic.twitter.com/7YzJNlf8A2

This is all very disturbing behavior, specifically directing a large amount of anger meant for her at a mental health line that became overwhelmed with calls. How many people that actually need help didn’t get the support they needed during that time because Jarrar thought it would be a solid burn on those who called it looking for her?
This is definitely a heinous woman…and she’s teaching the youth of America.
Again, I want to reiterate that I’m all about free speech. A person is more than welcome to spill their hatred and bigotry out into the public square as often and as furiously as they wish. However, when it comes to state-funded colleges, it’s hard not to want a line drawn when it comes to certain behaviors. She put people at risk who may have needed help because her hatred drove her to that length. She has demonstrated beyond a few hateful tweets that she’s willing to cause real harm.
This woman is clearly sick, and more needs to happen than the weak tea response given to us by Fresno State. From what I understand, Jarrar is now on leave, but being on leave is no punishment for someone who is getting paid regardless.
