When the Constitution was first written it was kinda racist and oppressive. Don't get me wrong, it created a lot of right's for wealthy white men, like those who wrote it, but that's about it. Our society was still quite backward when it came to racism (for one we have slaves) and sexism when the Constitution was first penned.

The keyword of course is when it was first penned. Today all people, including women and minorities, are legally equal under the Constitution and so they can hardly be said to be oppressed by it in their every day lives.

There's nothing wrong with questioning the Constitution, after all it is a living document (meaning it should be interpreted) and is designed to be amended. The Constitution is not sacred or beyond questioning, it is a flawed human document. Remember that the main point of the Constitution is to restrict the behavior of the government, not the people.

The problem is that these mental defectives will have the ability to change the Constitution with no opposition one of these days


We have the ability to change the Constitution NOW. In fact, we always have. The first amendment was made in 1791.

And what makes these people "mental defectives"? Your disagreement with them?

This whole video concept is BS! Hey @NLBS Do on vid on James O'keefe!!

Girl who claims see was "triggered" by a the constitution handed to her by a student and then talks a counselor into shredding the constitution. Do you think the couselor is honesty gonna say "sack up" and risk a lawsuit?

No, I think the counselor is going to to demonstrate that the constitution is harmless. That's is nothing to lock yourself up in a room about..

I hope the counselor had a good laugh telling their SO about their day. "Hey hon, check this out. The stupid girl locked herself up in a room for a week because she saw the US constitution. IT WAS IN CURSIVE!!!"

You guys are, as always, funny as hell.

Another edited video with no context compels you to spit the usual "pc" and "socialist" garbage.

You're entire argument is based on political correctness. You are the PC.

Quit wasting my time with emotional, out-of-context bull# and let me know when you find something better to discuss than the usual "butt-hurt" politics.

When did you graduate?

I can recall learning the Bill of Rights and Constitution numerous times throughout my schooling and I graduated in 2006. We didn't just learn about it in class, we went on field trips, watched documentaries and films, etc.

Has something happened in the last 10 years to school curriculum that they don't teach the Constitution? Given that last year I helped my nephew, who is still in high school, with an assignment about the Articles of Confederation something tells me they do indeed teach American history, including the Constitution.

If there are places in America that don't teach the Constitution and American history that is the exception, not the rule.

Apparently, they no longer think it is a "living document".


who is this "they"....10 people?, 100 people?, 3 people?, 10,000 people?....what are their names?...who are they affiliated with?....where's the complete text of the conversation?.....

Excuse me...

Did I hear that right? The constitution of the United States of America is racist and oppressive?

Please, could someone explain to me what the hell these administrators are thinking, in supporting that kind of thinking? This is happening in PLACES OF HIGHER LEARNING!

I realise that the staff members involved are not necessarily part of the educating staff, but are administrators, but to work in a place of higher learning, one must, surely have to have more awareness of history, than to accept the utter rubbish being spouted by the undercover reporter?

If these administrators really feel that way, they should not be allowed to work in a learning environment. Period. Appeasing stupidity is the antithesis of everything an educator should stand for, and that is precisely what these staff members have done. Appalling, absolutely bloody disgraceful.

This reminds me of the Planned Parenthood videos! LOL!

The video was chopped up, omitting the context in several areas, but I get the idea... So, ONE person is "frightened" (or something) by the Constitution and wants to shred it for cathartic purposes. So what? It's her first amendment right to do so, just as it would be for someone to burn the flag.

What is the problem here?


I'm waiting on examples please. The claims they were confronted by on NBC was that the pictures of dead babies weren't the same babies being discussed. That's WEAK.

You know that whole "highly edited" claim has been debunked right? What exactly about those videos do you believe was "highly edited"?

So the highly edited claim was debunked huh?
Planned Parenthood Videos Were Altered, Analysis Finds


Planned Parenthood on Thursday gave congressional leaders and a committee that is investigating allegations of criminality at its clinics an analysis it commissioned concluding that “manipulation” of undercover videos by abortion opponents make those recordings unreliable for any official inquiry. “A thorough review of these videos in consultation with qualified experts found that they do not present a complete or accurate record of the events they purport to depict,” the analysis of a private research company said.

The undercover "journalist" said that.

The administrators are doing their best to listen to her. It wouldn't be prudent for them to tell a student that what she thinks is bonkers.

I don't understand the problem here. So one person wants to talk about the constitution, have discussion groups, say they think it's flawed, possibly bad or racist? One copy is put into a shredder.

It's a college, they should be talking about the constitution. However, whatever they decide has no actual effect on the constitution itself.

It's politically incorrect to talk about the Constitution this way. That's all there is to it. That's why people are upset and that's why this video was made. To offend people who support the Constitution.

I support the Constitution, but I REFUSE to let people's opinions offend me. I suggest the OP join me.

the national defense authorization act, section 1021, goes against the 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 8th amendment...but, it's the move against the 2nd amendment that gets all the ATS'ers mad.....this must be called "selective shredding of the constitution"

Would she have that 1st Amendment right if the Constitution were gone?


Considering the first amendment was passed after the Constitution was ratified, she probably would.

Voice of reason in this thread.

That's the crux of the issue, isn't it? These "educators" agree with the undercover journalist's gripes, tacitly and overtly. Yes, these people are not fit to be educators, and yes, it matters little in the bumbling farce which is the U.S. educational establishment.

You don't have to be intelligent, or even generally well-learned, to be an instructor of something like gender studies. Sociology, gender studies, psychology etc. are the domain of halfwits and brash faux-intellectuals. They shouldn't even be considered real areas of study, or at the least they should fall under one umbrella, something like "social pseudo-sciences".

I guess you didn't watch the whole video. Two copies were shredded, and the second was at the behest of an administrator with no prompting from the undercover journalist. The administrator offered to do it without the idea even being brought up yet, as it's something she's entertained already.

Why not? Seriously. Are you saying that having opinions that don't agree with yours should disqualify someone from being an educator?


Two copies were shredded...


And? Is that illegal or something?

To have an opinion on something, you should know what it is. Somehow I doubt these women have read the Constitution in full, much less understood what's written there.

That's another problem that seems common these days. People with opinions that don't deserve to have them.

Ah! Some of us deserve to have opinions and others don't? And have YOU read the Constitution and know what's written there?

Yes, I have. I said they don't deserve to have an opinion, not that the law should prohibit them from having one.

I also think that many people don't deserve to have free speech, but I wouldn't try to take that right from them.
