I was really disappointed in Mr. Munroe when I saw this.

It is willfully obtuse. It doesn't accurately describe the problem. The controversy is not about unpopular messages being ignored, disagreed with, or criticized—it's about active efforts to prevent people from ever hearing them.

If they disagree with her outside the classroom, correct. In the classroom, it's her job to direct the conversation, it's not supposed to be all-voices-are-valid.

That is actually a different scenario, that would be unfairly using her position of power and influence over her students and being unprofessional in the workplace. That type of behavior would be infringing on her students right of free speech not to mention subjective indoctrination of young impressionable minds. I went from being raised to be a conservative though naturally and inherently completely denying bigotry and racism from the littlest shorty to being a full fledged indoctrinated liberal Democrat after college. Then as I gained true life experience in real world sitchyashuns, I realized to freely allow yourself to be a label is quite foolish. Life is so much more complex than that and so are we.

i agree

as foolish as she sounds, firing her probably wouldn't change her position

if someone peacefully confronted her with a little bit of reason and logic, she might even understand the error of her ways

or at least we can hope so...

Fresno State Shouldn't Fire a Professor for Saying She's Glad Barbara Bush Died


Fresno President Joseph Castro said in a statement that Jarrar's comments were "made as a private citizen, not as a representative of Fresno State," and "are obviously contrary to the core values of our University, which include respect and empathy for individuals with divergent points of view, and a sincere commitment to mutual understanding and progress."

But this statement has not satisfied the many conservatives on Twitter who want Fresno to fire her. Disappointingly, The Daily Wire­—the conservative website run by Ben Shapiro—also seems to want something more from Fresno. The Daily Wire's Ryan Saavedra writes:

The key line in Fresno State's statement is: "Her statements were made as a private citizen, not as a representative of Fresno State." That line most likely signals that the university is not going to take a hard stand over the hateful remarks from this professor who mocked the death of an American icon and rejoiced in the suffering of her family.



 

I agree she was using Bush's death in a self indulgent look at me and how cool I am with my totally inapprops statement or in other words as the kids say, she was thirsty. lol Tacky, but it is an infringement of her 1st amendment right as a private citizen for her to lose her job over this. Cause that's just her opinion, man.

That freedom of assembly should not come at the cost of public safety though. Our peaceful little town is being invaded by the same Neo Nazi bunch that totally ruined Charlottesville emotionally and financially. I heard they were banned from the state of Virginia and our Mayor, local council and police are going to just allow them to saunter in here and fvck everything up?? We have filed an injunction, but it don't look good, they are flying under the banner of free speech, but this is inciting violence straight up.
