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.

Doctors fear Trump will lie about a vaccine to win the election

Published

There is a fear among many that the so-called "October Surprise" won't be another international scandal at the White House, but President Donald Trump announcing a vaccine, whether there is one or not.

Washington Post political columnist Greg Sargent explained in his Monday column that scientists are issuing a warning in a series of New York Times interviews. Either Trump will like and announce a vaccine that isn't ready or he'll rush the process to ensure a vaccine is ready, whether it is or not. Some of the scientists even work for the American government and have updated information on the status of a vaccine.

GOP strategists fear a Kris Kobach nomination could cost Republicans greatly: ‘The Senate majority runs through Kansas’

Published

on

In Kansas’ Republican senatorial primary, voters will choose between former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Rep. Roger Marshall — who some GOP strategists believe is by far the more electable of the two. And according to Politico’s James Arkin, one of the prominent Republicans who is sounding the alarm is Kevin McLaughlin, executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Although Kobach and Marshall are both hard-right politically, Kobach is more extreme — so extreme that even in deep red Kansas, he lost a gubernatorial race to a centrist Democrat in the 2018 midterms. That Democrat, Laura Kelly, is now governor of Kansas, where Kobach was a leading promoter of the racist “birther” conspiracy theory during the 2010s.
