Radical Professor Swamps Crisis Line With Calls In Prank Tweet

University Professor Randa Jarrar endangered lives with her prank call.

Fresno, CA – California State University-Fresno English Professor Randa Jarrar caused a crisis line to get flooded with calls after she sent a prank tweet.

Jarrar recently made headlines for her attack on Barbara Bush just hours after her death.

Bush, 92, passed away on Apr. 17.

“Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal,” Randa Jarrar said in the post, according to FOX News. “F**k outta here with your nice words.”

“Either you are against these pieces of s**t and their genocidal ways or you’re part of the problem,” Jarrar went on to write. “I’m happy the witch is dead...Can’t wait for the rest of her family to fall to their demise in the way 1.5 million Iraqis have.”

In the backlash that ensued, the arrogant professor noted that she could “never be fired” due to her status as a tenured professor, and that she would “always have people wanting to hear what I have to say,” FOX News reported.

“All the hate I’m getting ALMOST made me forget how happy I am that George W Bush is probably really sad right now,” Jarrar said in a later tweet.

One Twitter user posted Jarrar’s Fresno State work number, which prompted her to respond that the number had not yet been activated, The Arizona Republic reported.

"If you really wanna reach me, here's my number ok?" Jarrar said in a tweet, followed by the contact number for a 24-hour Arizona State University crisis line, called Empact.

The line was subsequently flooded with calls – 50 to 70 per hour – compared to the five calls per week they typically received, The Arizona Republic reported.

By Tuesday night, Vanderbilt University Medical Center Dr. Eugene Gu issued a tweet, and told Jarrar that her actions had placed other people at risk.

“Your freedom of speech does not entitle you to have all these people spam an actual mental health crisis line. Please stop,” Dr. Gu wrote.

On Apr. 18, Fresno State University President Joseph Castro announced that the university was looking into the incident, The Fresno Bee reported.

"A professor with tenure does not have blanket protection to say and do what they wish," Castro said. "We are all held accountable for our actions."

"This was beyond free speech,” he added. “ This was disrespectful.”

Jarrar seemed unfazed by the backlash – which included a petition with tens thousands of endorsements calling for her ouster – and instead appeared to taunt her critics in yet another tweet, The Fresno Bee reported.

“I’m still fabulous, thanks for checking in. Love to all of you who have sent support,” the professor wrote.

On Tuesday, Jarrar told The Cut that she “absolutely” continued to stand by her comments.

“I felt compelled to speak up because I want people to remember history. I want people to know that our country’s actions don’t just disappear; they have real, negative consequences,” Jarrar told the news outlet.

Jarrar, who says that she is of Egyptian, Palestinian, and Greek heritage, claimed that her critics targeted her because of her ethnic background.

“I am not the only person who has stated the belief that Barbara Bush was a racist,” she told The Cut. “But women of color routinely have their tone policed, their justified anger painted as hatred, and their criticism of injustice framed as racism toward white people.”

Jarrar said that she had not received any “official emails from the university or any details about a so-called investigation,” The Cut reported.

Craig Bernthal, who is also an English department professor at Fresno State, said that he did not believe the university would be able to fire Jarrar unless she was found to have committed a crime, The Fresno Bee reported.

If investigators determined that Jarrar had caused enough disruption by directing people to call the Arizona State University’s crisis line, a criminal charge could result, Bernthal said.

Outside of that possibility, tenured professors are essentially shielded from being fired.

"It's easy to be a radical if you're a tenured professor," Bernthal added.

The petition calling for Jarrar to be removed from her teaching petition had garnered nearly 40,000 signatures as of Tuesday afternoon.

"Jarrar, who says that she is of Egyptian, Palestinian, and Greek heritage, claimed that her critics targeted her because of her ethnic background." what a stupid thing to say, no basis in fact. I could not tell any of her claimed ancestral heritage by looking at her. By the way How many people did Stalin kill?

The sad part is she is teaching young people her same beliefs no wonder our young adults are messed up. The worst part is she is getting paid for saying all of this!

She is definitely projecting her self loathing to others. The lack of any physical contact with other human beings must have a terrible effect on her. God bless the ugly fat cunt.

She’s projecting her self. Hatred and self loathing on the world. Her arrogance if to offset her low self esteem.

What an ignorant fat cunt. Love these scumn who call Geaorge Bush a war crimianl and totally ignore the amount of people that Saddam Hussein killed! Ask the people of Kuwait it they are happy at being liberated from Hussein's rule. What a fat useless cunt. And she is a professor!!!

@gfc1963
The Iraqi people respected Hussein because he was keeping ISIS at bay.

We went over there and killed him for (not even) having weapons of mass destruction, and that opened the gate wide for ISIS to take the area.

You should read books more often.

And, this is just another prime example of why no one should be granted tenure or its various cousins, no matter how good they might be! This woman is mentally ill & dangerous to the public & should be locked up! Maybe, there's treatment that could ease her hatred of society, self-hatred as shown by her obesity--she obviously has problems with self-control of both her eating & her speech, her endangerment of students in crisis situations who were trying to get help, etc. No, she must go!

Funny ain’t it ? The same people who claim they can’t be fired or be held responsible for their actions, are the same people who are calling for the president of the United States to be fired. Why, is this person being allowed to teach our children ?

What a load of nonsense. But coming from you what else could I have expected?? ISIS didn't even exist when we liberated Kuwait and got rid of Hussein. Again ask the people of Kuwait about us liberating them from Hussein. He was such a lovely chap wasn't he?? I read books but obviously not the ones you read, the ones that say Hussein was a lovely bloke and we should have left him alone to murder and torture milions.

Hey dumbass. ISIS didn't exist during Sadam Hussein's reign.

He never leaves. He's like a bad venereal disease. And when the pressure is on, he just ignores the substance and morphs the conversation into something else.

Actually ISIS did exist during the last few years of his reign, although they were hardly the threat that Highest_Stupity would have you believe.

He murdered over 80,000 Kurds right after we kicked his a$$ out of Kawait! The only thing I regret, is we didn't take care of this monster when we pushed right up to his door step then stopped!

@gfc1963
ISIS is a splinter of Al Queda, who was most definitely around. And no Hussein wasn't a good person and should have died. BUT, Bush lied to the world and said we were after him for weapons of mass destruction, which he never had.

Hi_estComnDenomn

And Clinton tried to have him overthrown the same reason Bush invaded. Oil.

@Rmoore74 @John-Brown

Again dumbfucks, ISIS is a splinter of Al Queda, who was most definitely waiting in the wings for the fall of hussein.

Funny how we eliminate the "threat" and a larger, more aggressive threat takes his place not long after. Hussein wasn't a good person by any stretch, but he was definitely the lesser of two evils.

Oh, and we lied to the world when we said he had weapons of mass destruction.

@Hi_estComnDenomn so,,, what are your feelings about Obama and Libya ??? Or better yet, Obama in general? Love to hear your response to BOTH of those questions.

Even though you're my fan club president (check his profile. He's wearing my fan club badge), i still don't like you. Re-ask your question with no insults and I'll answer.

I don't give a fuck if you like me or not. Really you don't like me because I make such a fool of you. It's really too easy. You are nothin but a racist bitch. By the way I put that image as my profile picture because it shows what an idiot you are. Couldn't even spell your name correct. So, as for insults, you are retarded. (Truth, not an insult.) You do nothing but insult people but want to be respected. What a joke. Your double standards exceed your stupidity.Typical liberal.

Exposing your stupidity is just too fun.
By the way, where was the insult in this question?

Are you are that easily offended or just that stupid?

@gfc1963
Pretty much everyone knew ISIS invading was the next step. That's why after lying to the world for killing Hussein, we stayed there and started training and arming rebels to fight ISIS.

Were you in a coma the whole time this was going on, or were you really that unaware of what was going on for like 3 years?

@Hi_estComnDenomn you never answered my original question or my question as to what was insulting about my question.
