University administrators shred U.S. Constitution in a shredder to calm student 'afraid' of the Constitution
by L.J. Devon, Staff Writer
(NaturalNews) America's founding document, born out of our Revolution's victory against tyranny, was created to restrain the government. The reality of the Constitution can be intimidating and offensive, especially to dependent-minded, thin-skinned people who can't face the reality of history and how the world really works. Today the government has unlimited borrowing, taxing and spending powers – a departure from the Constitution's original intent. It's the people's ignorance of this document's importance and their negligence to stand for its principles that has corrupted this country today.
At the heart of the ignorance and inaction are institutions that teach against the values of the Constitution. College campuses breed people with no real world understanding of how the Constitution is supposed to work (restraining government) or where their freedom really comes from. College campuses are full of political correctness, where students cry out for fairness and a world where perceived equality is forcibly imposed. It's rare to find students who understand the difference between their inherent freedoms (reinforced by the Constitution) and the privileges/entitlements that modern governments control them with.
College administrators shred Constitution to appease studentTo see this type of ignorance at work, investigators went undercover for James O'Keefe's Project Veritas to report on how easily college administrators will cater to student complaints to destroy the the Constitution of the United States. In these examples, we see how political correctness can destroy the principles of individual freedoms, all because that document is considered too "extreme," "harmful" or "highly offensive."
It's painful to watch and hard to believe, but the video shows Vassar College Assistant Director of Equal Opportunity Kelly Grab shredding a Constitution at the whimpering demands of a student.
Director Grab immediately sympathized with the student as she complained about the offensive and harmful nature of the Constitution: "And so what I think you're sharing with me is that your interaction in receiving this was harming, right?" Grab sympathized. "And that's what we certainly want to avoid; we don't want to limit people in exchanging ideas or having opposing viewpoints, but when it's disruptive or causing harm..."
"Yes, I think we have a shredder in the front office there," Grab replies. "Did you want to do it with me?"
In the video, Grab is seen shredding the Constitution, page by page, to appease the student.
It's political correctness at its darkest hour. This shows how easy it is for people to give up their inherent rights all for the sake of not offending another person. This shows how weak people have become and how detached colleges are from the principles of individual freedoms (that do not come from government).
Here's what Wendy Kozol, Professor/Chair of Comparative American Studies from Oberlin College had to say about the Constitution: "The Constitution in everyday life causes people pain." She went on to say that the Constitution is racist and that she refrains from using it in class. She also said to the complaining student, "I think there are a lot of people who will immediately agree with you and join the conversation and think about ways to limit, confine, or talk back; maybe you just want to talk back to the Constitution."
Carol Lasser, Professor of History and Director of Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies at Oberlin, agreed that "[t]he Constitution is an oppressive document."
Trying to skew the language and historical intentions of the Second Amendment, Professor Lasser said, "The Constitution is not a sacred document in that sense.... What could be clearer than, I mean at least from my point of view, that the founders never envisioned giving people carte blanche to own assault rifles?"
The conversations and events that took place at the college campuses baffled O'Keefe and everyone else working on project. "When this idea came up in our newsroom about campus administrators shredding the Constitution because it's a trigger against students, we didn't think people would actually fall for it," he stated. "We underestimated just how stupid and politically correct these people are."
"We were amazed and disappointed. Political correctness and cultural sensitivity run amok."
