Prof. Randa Jarrar
"I am a tenured professor so you cannot fire me for whatever I say " This college professor went off the handle when Barbara Bush died making some pretty nasty public remarks , "The Bit-- Is Finally Dead " being just one , I don't expect anyone on the left to address this but the question is -When is enough enough when it comes to institutional indoctrinated America hatred going on all over America today ?
Clear thinking Americans of all political spectrum knows she is wrong and a loom. She has no business teaching our kids. I am hopeful the school has made a public statement denouncing her. She may have tenure but her career is finished. Her 15 minutes of fame did her in. The bitch is dead and it is her.
I don't agree with what she said, but she has a right to her opinion Also, any employer has the right to evaluate the public comments made by an employee as to whether or not it properly represents the employer and meets their standard of conduct for an employee.
"Also, any employer has the right to evaluate the public comments made by an employee as to whether or not it properly represents the employer and meets their standard of conduct for an employee."
Do you find that this is far more gray than black and white? That employers do NOT have the right to require employees to share corporate policy in their private lives? That the corporation does NOT have the right to determine the politics of it's employees?
You are a computer technician for IBM. You write a letter to the editor criticizing the takedown of civil war statues in your town, while IBM is on record as decrying the racism inherent in those statues. Does IBM have an ethical right to terminate your employment? Should you be required to either keep your mouth shut or agree with IBM's stance outside of the closed doors of your own home?
If so, what about "she has a right to her opinion"?
Yes, it's is definitely a gray area, and I do believe it is possible for an employer to violate an employee's right to have and express opinions that differ from employer policy.
So do I. Not when that person is representing the company (sales clerk, PR personnel, etc.) - during those times the employee MUST promote corporate attitudes - but off the clock your time is absolutely your own.
But even that is gray - I recall an instance recently where an elementary school teacher was posting white supremacist garbage online. Though her own time it's hard to believe that her attitude wasn't carrying over into the classroom. A pro-life activist working in an abortion clinic - can we say "hidden agenda"? It's all pretty gray, at least to me. But then isn't life that way?
Agree 100% with everything you said. Wow, this seems to be happening more frequently lately. What's up with that?
Why, that's obvious! Your association with Wilderness is resulting in great self improvement!
Seriously, it is opinion that (disregarding the far end whackos) the left and right are not far apart at all in goals or even in what we see, although that is always tempered by what we look for. Where the difference lies is in how we get there, and what we think will produce those goals. IMO.
It’s a terrible thing for anyone to say and she sounds like an asshole. She doesn’t represent me.
What sane person would speak ill of Barbara Bush? She was a famous wife. That's it. She didn't do anything I've ever heard of which would warrant an attempt to publicly insult her.
More over, she was a positive influence on our youth and education and literacy...She has done more in her life than most and should be praised. This professor should be shamed into an apology. She knew better but just couldn’t help it.
I am reminded back in the 1980s, where a prominent celebrity was quoted saying he has a champagne bottle save away for the day Reagan died. It is that kind of insanity the permeates the left.
Oh beg to differ ,but she's the mother of G,W .and the wife of GHW ,......that makes her the evil mother of the "eve of destruction ".
Oh, these liberals!
Roger Stone, a former adviser to President Trump, lost an invitation to speak at a Florida Republican group's annual dinner due to negative remarks he made about former first lady Barbara Bush.
The Okaloosa Republican Executive Committee "uninvited" Stone over comments he made to the right-wing conspiratorial website InfoWars about Bush, who died Tuesday.
"I understand I'm going to take a lot of crap for speaking the truth about Barbara Bush," Stone said in an interview with InfoWars host Alex Jones. "She was a mean-spirited, vindictive drunk. She is ascending into hell right now. She's not going to heaven. She was a bad person."
Stone also reportedly wrote on Instagram that "Barbara Bush was a nasty drunk. When it came to drinking she made Betty Ford look like Carrie Nation #blottoBabs... Barbara Bush drank so much booze, if they cremated her … her body would burn for three days."
Such are the growing pains of such a volatile and instantly widespread social media voice. With the RECENT historical onset of social media perhaps a lot of constitutional "rules of the road "are going to change ? I wondered if idiots like this professor somehow came from stifled cultures ,perhaps in other countries ?
I'll Tell you this , if people think a right such as the second amendment is fluid , we'll definitely be looking at the first amendment .
This lady’s particular comments aside, this post doesn’t really seem congruent with your usual “everyone is too PC” attitude.
Isn't this funny though , the left's rather flippant response to something so blatantly hateful coming from their ideology , she'll probably keep her job forming the minds of the indoctrinated believers in her classes at $100,000 a year plus bennies though ?
Well , Guess what ,The woman keeps her job because she has a right to express her opinion , what a horrible piece of dog crap !

It has got to be an employer's market, a cousin of mine called and said that he got a job. The employer said that he was to work part time and was expected to be on call virtually at all times the store was open. Of course, no benefits outside the crappy compensation. What the hell is going on...

Washington state is an "AT WILL" state and most employers are under the assumption that they don't have to have a reason to fire an employee. One employer actually told me that he could fire a person because he didn't like the patch on her shirt! Because I was not at all...

Following remarks he made to GQ magazine concerning the Bible and condemning homosexuality, Phil Robertson was recently suspended from the series Duck Dynasty. Do you think his rights to free speech have been violated?

Is it right to ask an employee to submit certificate in case one is week long medial leave????Organisations talk about "Trust". Employers want us to trust them and our peers, however employees are generally asked to show their medical certificate in case they are going for a medical leave...
