The U.S. Constitution is one of the most sacred pieces of American history. It governs all the laws and procedures we follow as U.S. citizens and, therefore, is often the battleground for bickering politicians and activists.
On Tuesday, Project Veritas posted a video online of college administrators from liberal arts college Vassar and Oberlin in New York meeting with, what they thought, was a student. The student, who was actually an undercover reporter for Project Veritas, expressed her emotional concerns about the Constitution:
“I thought that Vassar wanted to create like a safe place here. You know, a place where students could walk around and not be scared of seeing discriminating things on campus.”
“The Constitution is kind of a trigger for me. Overall I see it just as a really oppressive document.”
Eventually, the “reporter” is able to convince the Vassar College administrator, Kelly Grab, to SHRED A POCKET COPY OF THE CONSTITUTION for “therapeutic reasons.”
Awwww…don’t worry — the bad man is gone, honey.
James O’Keefe, the journalist behind Project Veritas, explains the video was shot and posted online to show “how stupid and politically correct these people are.”
While it’s easy to jump the administrators in the video, especially the one we see shredding the copy, they were all set up to fail in this situation.
College administrators are forced to be kind and understanding to any complaints, regardless of how absurd they might be.
My favorite person in the video is Wendy Kozol, Professor/Chair of Comparative American Studies at Oberlin College. Her words say, “I’m so sorry,” but her face says, “Get out of my office, you politically correct weirdo.”
If you’re truly offended by the U.S. Constitution, please don’t go to college. Actually, just don’t leave the house..
