Here’s Why Fresno State University Professor Randa Jarrar Needs to be Fired

leave a comment »

Ben Shapiro wrote an article yesterday which appeared on The Daily Wire in which he argued against the firing of Fresno State Professor Randa Jarrar. For those of you who still may not have heard of her- Randa Jarrar posted comments on her Twitter account which stated the following:

“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.”

“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. byyyeeeeeee.” (sic)

Jarrar then cited her tenure and taunted Fresno State University tweeting that, “I will never be fired.”

Then, for whatever insane reason known only to her, Jarrar tweeted the phone number to the Arizona State University’s suicide prevention hotline which resulted in the line becoming overloaded.

Shapiro’s article compares Jarrar to Marvin Pickering, an Illinois teacher who wrote a letter to a local paper criticizing the school board for its mishandling of funds. He was fired by the Board Of Ed and sued to get his job back. The case against Pickering was initially heard in Illinois State Supreme Court who ruled in favor of the Board of Ed. The case was eventually heard in US Supreme Court who subsequently ruled in favor of Pickering.

Justice White concurred in part and stated that,

“The Court holds that, truthful statements by a school teacher critical of the school board are within the ambit of the First Amendment. So also are false statements innocently or negligently made. The State may not fire the teacher for making either unless, ….. there are special circumstances, not present in this case…….”

To compare Jarrar to Pickering is wrong. Pickering wrote a letter in an attempt to bring to light improprieties he felt were being committed by the school board regarding the misuse of funds. His accusations were found to be not “recklessly” false.

Jarrar on the other hand posted malicious comments about an individual who had recently passed away who was incapable of defending herself and the allegations made against her.

Jarrar is not, as Shapiro may believe, speaking on controversial issues. Jarrar’s “speech” is not part of a debate on dissenting opinions and goes beyond the scope of freedom of expression. She appears to be completely unhinged and her comments are completely disrespectful and unbecoming of a professional woman.

Jarrar chose to involve Fresno State University by mentioning them in her comments. Had she not, than we wouldn’t be having this discussion.

Fresno State University should have every right to fire Randa Jarrar should they so choose. If Jarrar’s comments diminish the “brand” of Fresno State University then Fresno State University should have the ability to take whatever action they need to repair their reputation. It seems we have reached a point in time where people believe their right to “free speech” should come without consequence and at the expense of others. Freedom of speech does and should have limits.

This is not a case of a teacher or professor speaking on controversial topics nor is it about a difference of opinion. This is a case of what appears to be a mentally disturbed individual making absurd comments while identifying herself as an employee of a university that she says can take no action against her. Fresno State University should distance themselves from her and restore the faith in both their students and alumni and show that they expect their employees to act in a professional manner.

Max Rose – Hypocrite

leave a comment »

Max Rose – Democratic candidate for Congress from Staten Island – welcomed the endorsement of the NARAL – a pro choice PAC.

Max Rose also blames the NRA for mass shootings and says he’s doing all he can to stop them.

Think about this for a second-

In 2014 there were 653,638 innocent babies aborted – murdered.

In the last 51 years, no NRA member has been responsible for a mass shooting.

Max Rose wants you to believe that he’s doing all he can to stop innocent victims from being killed. Only problem is, he is now in bed with an organization that makes a living from killing innocent victims.

Can you say hypocrite?

And by the way Max – you want to ban the AR15? The weapon of choice in most of the mass shootings over the past 51 years has been a handgun.

But hey – why let facts get in the way of a political platform.

Another typical politician folks. A hypocrite who will say anything he thinks his supporters want to hear just to get their vote.

Let’s start holding the criminal responsible. Let’s start calling for stricter laws for those who use a firearm illegally.

Let’s stop going after law abiding gun owners who have nothing to do with these terrible terrible tragedies.

Let’s pray Max Rose stays out of Washington.

Free College in New York State…….Well Not Really

leave a comment »

New York is set to become the first state in the union to offer free college tuition. Thanks to socialist governor Andrew Cuomo, tuition at state and city colleges will now be free to those students who come from families making less than $100k per year.  The threshold will rise to $125,000 per year in three years. 

It’s been reported that upwards of 940,000 families will benefit as a result. 

So let’s think about this for a minute. If the average family has 2.4 children – that means 2,256,000 children can ultimately take advantage of this “free” tuition. 

If they all decide to go to a state school and the average tuition cost is $6470/year, the total cost per year for all these children will be over $14 billion. 

At the end of four years – this free tuition will cost over $58 billion per family. 

$58 billion. 

So please explain to me how this is “free” tuition. 
Are the professors no longer getting paid and now volunteering their time?  Are the utility companies now providing free gas and electric to the schools? Are the security officers now working for free?  

You see free does not mean free unless of course you’re Andrew Cuomo or Bernie Sanders. Then free means free – just as long other people are going to be paying for it.
