James O’Keefe is at it again. He sent some of his undercover journalists to Oberlin and Vassar Universities, where the Cato Institute had distributed free copies of the Constitution. The reporter met with Vassar College Assistant Director of Equal Opportunity Kelly Grab. The reporter told Grab:
“Last week something kinda happened on campus that kind of really upset me and I ended up having a panic attack. It’s just I’ve been kind of hiding out in my room ever since kind of scared, so, finally somebody told me I should maybe come talk to you about it and see if there’s anything that can happen or anything … They were handing the Constitution out on campus.”
Now, some of you may think the reporter used ridiculous language in explaining the Constitution’s effect on them, but this is the way liberals talk, so while you and I may laugh at what was said, a liberal college authority would take it quite seriously. It gets worse:
“They were handing it out and as soon as I saw it you know I started to not be able to breathe, hyperventilating. My vision went blurry and I just—kind of just lost control.”
Grab sympathized with the student and agreed to run the Constitution through the shredder and asked the reporter if she would like to watch, which she did so that she could document it.
When they went to Oberlin College in Ohio, it was decidedly worse, with professors and staff disparaging the Constitution. The reporter first met with Wendy Kozol, Professor/Chair of Comparative American Studies at Oberlin. Kozol said this:
“The Constitution in everyday life causes people pain.”
“So, obviously my end goal is I want the Constitution to not have such a central part here at Oberlin—I would like people to see how discriminating it is and how racist it is,” the reporter tells Kozol. “Do you think that’s a reasonable goal that we could get to?”
“Absolutely,” Kozol says. “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, likewise concurred that “[t]he Constitution is an oppressive document” because it intentionally makes change a slow process.
“I think birthright citizenship is right,” she whispers. “And you know that if that was up for a vote today we would lose it under the craziness of Trump and his seven dwarves.”
She then observes that “[t]he Constitution is not a sacred document in that sense,” citing the Second Amendment as an example and asking, “[w]hat 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?”
Colleen Cohen, Faculty Director of Affirmative Action and a Professor of Anthropology at Oberlin, is even more indulgent of the reporter’s complaint, saying, “[i]t’s horrible that this is something that has caused you such pain,” and despairing that “unless the people are from off campus,” there is nothing the college can do to prevent the Constitution from being distributed.
“Can I destroy this?” she asks the reporter, referring to the Constitution. “Or did you want to hold on to it?”
Unlike Vassar, the idea of destroying the Constitution was Colleen Cohen’s, the Faculty Director of Affirmative Action and a Professor of Anthropology.
