On Tuesday, former First Lady Barbara Bush died at her Houston, Texas, home at age 92, the Houston Chronicle and others reported. Relatives said Bush died of complications from congestive heart disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, the report adds. Naturally, liberal hatemongers celebrated her death on social media.
I’ve been tweeted at about this for the last 24 hours but lemme be clear. I’m glad Barbara Bush is dead and I hope the rest of the family follows suit soon.

I'm glad Barbara Bush is dead. Now if the rest of those fucking vampires could follow her lead, preferably immediately, the world might stand a chance of bettering itself even if only a little.

Among those who celebrated her death was Palestinian-American writer Randa Jarrar who also works as a teacher at Fresno State — the same college where this guy worked.
“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,” she tweeted, according to a report at Twitchy.
“PSA: either you are against these pieces of s**t and their genocidal ways or you’re part of the problem. that’s actually how simple this is. 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,” she added.
“All the hate I’m getting ALMOST made me forget how happy I am that George W Bush is probably really sad right now,” she said in a third tweet.
Her tweets are currently unavailable but can be seen here.
Fresno State issued this statement in response:

The Chronicle added:
Bush possessed a no-nonsense style, pulled no punches and told it like it was — graciously. The Texas matriarch was a strong, steadfast partner in her husband’s political life, privately offering her own opinions while standing dutifully by his side as they moved around the country and world in pursuit of his ambitions.
The couple exemplified a certain Texas grace, showing politeness, kindness and respect with a steady sense of humor. They ushered in an era of political prominence for the state and their family that would span decades, drawing both ire and praise.
“My dear mother has passed on at age 92,” former President George W. Bush said in a statement. “Laura, Barbara, Jenna, and I are sad, but our souls are settled because we know hers was. Barbara Bush was a fabulous first lady and a woman unlike any other who brought levity, love and literacy to millions.
“To us, she was so much more. Mom kept us on our toes and kept us laughing until the end. I’m a lucky man that Barbara Bush was my mother. Our family will miss her dearly, and we thank you all for your prayers and good wishes.”
The Chronicle said the former First Lady “is survived by her husband, George H.W. Bush; her sons George W., Jeb, Marvin and Neil; her daughter Dorothy Bush Koch; 17 grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; and her brother Scott Pierce. She was preceded in death by her siblings Martha Rafferty and James R. Pierce.”
The report notes:
Members of the public may pay their respects to Barbara Bush on Friday, when she will lay in repose between noon and midnight at St. Martin’s Church, 7171 Sage Road, Houston. Visitors must first park and go through security at Second Baptist Church, 6400 Woodway Drive, where the lot will open at 10 a.m. The funeral on Saturday at St. Martin’s Church will be private.
