Fox News fans turn into campus speech police after California professor keeps her job despite insulting Barbara Bush

Fresno State University professor Randa Jarrar

Fox News has filled many hours of airtime with attacks on campus “speech police” — but viewers want a California professor fired for politically incorrect remarks about the late Barbara Bush.

Fresno State University professor Randa Jarrar reacted to the former first lady’s death by calling Bush “an amazing racist” who “raised a war criminal,” and Fox News has been following the resulting firestorm.

“F*ck outta here with your nice words,” Jarrar tweeted from her now-private account. “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.”

The publicly funded university decided not to discipline the English instructor, saying her tweet was protected under the First Amendment — and Fox News asked their Twitter followers whether Jarrar should have been punished.

More than two-thirds of Fox followers agreed the university should reconsider and discipline Jarrar, and social media conservatives spit venom at the professor.

Digging into her Oval Office days, the former adviser and longtime Trump associate described the president's "zero to 200" screaming jags when displeased.

A former strategist for former President George W. Bush accused Republican lawmakers of hypocrisy on Sunday for for failing to honestly consider the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Matthew Dowd, a campaign strategist-turned-media-analyst, made the remarks in a tweet on Sunday.

"Deep in their hearts the Republicans in Congress know that if Obama had done one tenth of what President Trump has done they would have voted to impeach and convict him," Dowd wrote. "And Fox News would have been cheering them on. And Trump would have been pushing for it from the sidelines."

‘Opportunistic’ Trump has an ulterior motive for hyping Virginia gun rally on MLK day: MSNBC guest

Published

on

During a panel discussion on MSNBC's "AM Joy," the Reverend Mark Thompson claimed that President Donald Trump is sending a message to his rabid base by hyping up a pro-gun rally in Virginia on Martin Luther King Day.

Addressing the rally to be held in Richmond, which has the entire state on edge and forced lawmakers to ban weapons at the event in the name of safety, Thompson told host Joy Reid it was accident that the president linked the rally to a day when Americans celebrate the life of the civil rights leader who was gunned down in 1968 in Memphis.

Asked about Trump's tweets about the rally, the reverend called them disgraceful.
