Undercover video released recently by Project Veritas showed administrators at Yale, Cornell, Syracuse, Vassar and Oberlin Universities/Colleges agreeing to tear up copies of the Constitution handed out off campus after an investigator posing as a student described the document as “triggering” and “oppressive.”
“Well, I think that the Constitution means things to different people; like you said it is a flawed document and the people who wrote it are certainly flawed individuals in my mind,” Cornell lead Title IX investigator Elizabeth McGrath says on the video.
Ms. McGrath agrees to rip up the hand-held copy of the Constitution and run it through a shredder after the female “student” asks, “Is there any way that maybe like we can get rid of it somehow or I can just see that like maybe it will be like therapy for me, like if you can like shred it or something?” I like, like it!
Project Veritas president James O’Keefe, known for his undercover video operations against ACORN and National Public Radio, said the videos showed that the willingness to cut up the Constitution was “not an isolated incident.” Did the administrators try to sell the dismembered, formerly “living documents” parts to a third party?
“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 told Campus Reform. “We underestimated just how stupid and politically correct these people are.”
That’s hard to do. Maybe, like, students and administrators would, like, feel even better if they could see, like, the Declaration of Independence shredded, too.
