A tenured professor tweets "f*** outta here..." And "PSA: either you are against these pieces of s***....'

I work in a University, very closely with the Faculty of Education. These people, for the most part, are demented, debauched, and reprobate. They teach the young men & women who will teach our kids. Frightening.

I have no idea how such a despicable person was ever voted tenure at a major university. She's scary. Big red flag -- Don't send your kids to a school like that.

Latest updates on Randa Jarrar. It seems that she writes for a lot of leftist online tabloids, nowadays.

https://heavy.com/news/2018/04/randa-ja ... th-tweets/
==================================================================

P.S. Most latest update.

Press conference from the University in response to her behavior, and hints that her job is already in jeopardy.
https://www.dailywire.com/news/29615/fr ... n-saavedra
The Washington Post added that "her future interactions with students may be in question." Zelezny did not outline any specific disciplinary actions against Jarrar, stating only that officials are going to meet with “all represented parties.”

Zelezny went on to state that Jarrar has been on leave for the entire current semester and that she is not currently teaching any classes.

With the greatest respect for our profs like durangopipe and sideache, university professors and campuses in general have always been left-leaning affairs. This is not new. The behavior referenced in this thread is particularly vile and militant, but it's not new.

My best (unsolicited) advice is to work hard to give your kids a good base before they leave for university. And then stay involved while they're there. Heading out in to the world with an open mind is a good thing. Young people wanting to fix the world, whether as soldiers or scholars, is a good thing. Just try to have enough involvement that they will share what these whack jobs are saying with you and enough influence that you can steer them a little right so they don't end up in the ditch.

EDIT: A few times, with my three daughters, I've advised them to refuse to do, say, or write anything they find offensive. If that means failing a course, so be it. We can figure a way around it - there's a way to get through or around every problem, just don't do anything you're not OK with. No matter who's instructing you to do it. Of course that advice led to one speaking out in her Sr apologetics class and getting kicked out of high school four months before graduation thereby losing an athletic scholarship to a christian college. Talk about courage! And guess what. We got through it.

The lady is obviously smart enough to teach at a university...She should be smart enough to realize it's not okay to say stuff like that.

The tone for this was set a long time ago.

I'd love to not be able to be fired. It's a good gig if you can get it.

The University decided against any punishment. Apparently she can't be fired.

That's right.
University President Castro is getting clobbered for the announcement (FWIW, he's a very good man but his hands are tied by legal counsel.)
The only thing I see that can punish the prof is for students to boycott her classes when she returns to work, but my daughter who is a student there informs me that the students could care less about this.

Can we really blame the good professor? There are so many protected classes now that there's hardly anyone left who she can gripe about. It's not like blue-haired, white old ladies are going to stage a campus protest. I suppose a person has to vent once in a while and she picked a safe group to spew at.
