    Link below. I just heard about this on the radio. Not a super big Bush family fan but this is ridiculous. What an entitled, disrespectful jerk this individual is. Yes we have free speech but people get fired all the time for their free speech.

    I don't think she can be fired, but I understand she has been put "on leave" and her Twitter account has been deleted.

    This happened hee in Fresno and everybody is really upset with her.

    She made her twitter account private..wasn't deleleted.

    She did cancel an event she had this weekend...she's gotten death threats supposedly.

    Also, she can be fired even with tenure...it's just not that easy or simple.

    Also...she wasn't put on leave...she WAS on leave for some other reason this semester.

    This was the latest from my local news this morning....

    Well I guess if people feel they can say anything they want about our President...then they also feel they have the right to say anything they want about everyone else too. That just seems to be the way the World works now days.

    Thanks for the link @Chrissy Cross Read the article, the video wouldn't play. What I really hated was how she bragged that she could not be fired. Yes, people have free speech and are entitled to their opinions, however her superiority and arrogance really got to me.

    And I guess there are personal consequences to what you say.

    Here is a YouTube video of her ...unbelievable that she's a tenured professor ...she can't even talk properly. Uses like and the f word in every sentence.

    Big money donors to Fresno State are saying no more unless she's fired.

    I watched that video twice to make sure I'm being fair. So, ~~~~~ she hates President Trump. She hates the Bushes. She hates white men. She hates all men. She hates all Americans. She said she is getting paid a lot of money sit around and do nothing but think sh!t. What a cruddy piece of humanity she is. And parents are paying $31,018 or $64,482 per year for their sons and daughters to attend that school?????? :eek:

    I wonder how long until her book will be out?

    I think I might have come up with a new solution for the obvious over testing of our right to free speech.
    God forbid we should ever lose it but the professor in question started me thinking about how much hate and hurt speech has crowded the airwaves recently.
    Simply put, guns in the wrong hands kill, maim and wound but we are protected by the 2nd amendment. Free speech has the ability to kill, maim, and wound and is protected by the 1st amendment.
    There are some protections in place in order to keep guns out of the wrong hands but what are the protections when it comes with someone who cannot resist shooting their mouth off over the mike or typing it on the computer or yammering over the phone? Very little if any even though "hate speech" is considered illegal. Hate speech can inflict wounds far deeper than any bullet can and even be at the very root of someone's death especially is someone is mentally vulnerable.

    I have thought long and hard and I believe the solution might be that a guilty party should have ALL of their electronics taken away from them for a period of time which is decided by a very critical judge say, a 5 year old child. No computer, no microphones and no phones. Stripped bare and made the same as it was when the 1st amendment was ratified. Speak all you want; soap box it in the park, quill and paper or what have you but no more media, no more radio or tv appearances......nothing. Then, if that person is caught with a phone or on a computer, they go to jail for contempt of a kindergartener's judgment.

    Thanks for posting this @Chrissy Cross She is truly gross. I also agree with Bobby Cole's post. This POS is teaching young people and I can't even imagine the poison she is spewing that could potentially harm some young students. Of coarse not her cheering squad of the individuals she wants to surround herself with.

    Fresno State really needs to look at what they have on staff there. Poor parents and students paying for something like this.

    Exactly @Kitty Carmel ...

    If I was a parent, I'd be so upset. Also, how can a woman who speaks like she does in public be a professor of anything, let alone English,

    I haven't seen an update about her but if I hear they fired her, I'll post it.

    I agree @Chrissy Cross I think Saturday I did a Google search but nothing new really. Since you get the local updates, do let us know. My fear is it will fall away from the news.

    She's a foul mouthed mess. This is acceptable in academia? Because it's not acceptable talk in a normal workplace environment.

    Think there is a danger about her and others in your country.

    Except for the foul tongue I think she is the same as Joy Behar who is aloud too speak the same sort of filth.

    Also are Labour Party has adopted this moron to fight a seat in are next general election.

    She has been banned by are high court from suing anyone again.

    Link not worth watching but you can weep for my country as I weep for yours.

    OK some of the nutters statements below.

    • Richards appeared to question the authenticity of media coverage of the Manchester terror attack, tweeting: “can news agencies, police or anyone else for that matter explain why still no image/footage of physical damage at Manchester arena?”
    • She described the murder of Jo Cox as an “incident conveniently bereft of evidence”.
    • Suggested the death of Joni Sledge (from band Sister Sledge) was the result of a hidden plot. She wrote: “How many more shock celebrity deaths before high incidence called into question?”
    • Posted a video suggesting footage of the Westminster terror attack was faked and dishonestly edited.
    • Suggested a scene from the movie Inception shows the state is using “dream manipulation to induce behaviour in military or potential terror attackers”. She claimed the technique ‘cultivates killer soldiers’…
    • Richards stood as a Labour candidate in the 2016 London assembly election and lost, after which she immediately brought a High Court action challenging the result. She blamed her loss on a conspiracy between the returning officer and Labour centrist group Progress…
    • According to the Sunday Times, she brought failed court cases against MI5, MI6, the Metropolitan Police, the British Army, Thames Water, and her gas, electricity and broadband suppliers, Royal Mail, Hackney council, her GP and the freeholder of her flat. Richards accused the organisations of putting her under surveillance, tampering with her car, bicycle and mail, breaking into her home and failing to stop alleged attempts to poison her…
    As a result of her claims she was placed under 14 extended civil restraint orders by the High Court. As of this morning she remains a Labour candidate

    Thanks for the information @Chrissy Cross I'm sadly not surprised. Hopefully, no students or parents will want to pay for a class taught by this POS. What would the school do with her then if no one signed up for her class. Though I wonder if that will happen.

    She certainly shows what kind of an individual she is, beyond just her comments about Barbara Bush.

    Yep...hopefully only a few will take her classes....then eventually she may be let go or maybe given a non teaching position...I'm just guessing though.

    Freedom of speech gives her the right to say what she did about Barbara Bush, I suppose. I wouldn't think the college would be happy with the language she used in that video. If they fire her, she will file a lawsuit claiming that she was fired because of her race. There are ways to encourage her to resign, though. I hope the college administrators are aware of all those ways.

    An empty class might work.
