At the behest of an undercover reporter who claimed the mere presence of a pocket Constitution ‘triggered’ her to hyperventilate because the document “is disruptive or causing harm,” an administrator at Vassar College literally responded by placing it in the shredder.
Via Campus Reform:
The video was produced by Project Veritas, a non-profit established by conservative journalist James O’Keefe, and employs a similar style to the undercover ACORN videos that first brought him to prominence.
“Honestly, can we just like destroy… is there a shredder or something? I think it might be really therapeutic.” Tweet This
“Last week something kinda happened on campus that kind of really upset me and I ended up having a panic attack,” the reporter tells Vassar College Assistant Director of Equal Opportunity Kelly Grab. “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.”
“Oh, CATO Institute,” Grab murmurs while looking the booklet over.
“They were handing it out and as soon as I saw it you know I started to not be able to breathe, hyperventilating,” the reporter elaborated. “My vision went blurry and I just—kind of just lost control.”
Grab verified that the document was the root cause of the panic attack claimed by the reporter, and not the group itself.
The reporter then suggested that the document be “removed from campus permanently.” Grab didn’t flatly agree to that suggestion, but did offer to place the Constitution in question in the shredder as a “Cathartic” experience for the victim.

Another administrator at Vassar in the video is actually quick to offer a solution for the offended reporter, asking “Can I destroy this?”
She then explains to the reporter that as soon as her secretary returns, the Constitution will be run through the shredder.
Professors at Oberlin College in Ohio also took offense to the Constitution, referring to it as an “oppressive” document that “causes people pain.”
This is a glimpse of what life is like in today’s liberal-controlled academia.
