much less an example of Constitutional expert, incompetent
or an example of world-history student, illiterate

Sure, one can tear apart this outrageous drivel line-by-line,
but it can more easily be dismissed by one phrase: US Constitution, Article V.
(What? It’s the process for amending the Constitution. Try to keep up, m’kay?)
The Constitution is not just “important or inspiring,” it’s a friggin’ CONTRACT !
The FedGov has no legitimate existence outside that contract.
It was created via this contract at the stroke of a pen, not as an act of God, and not as a state of nature .
It was created by the States and the people for their mutual self-interest, and the contract includes within itself the means to update itself as necessary.
If the FedGov fails to live up to the duties assigned to it by the people, especially in defending our natural rights, then it risks being replaced by another government which will.
If it exceeds the authorities and powers ceded to it by the people, especially those encroaching on our natural rights, then those acts are illegitimate, and the FedGov risks being replaced by another government which won’t.
(see: Declaration of Independence)
Unless these jackasses propose a new Constitution that we can read beforehand (so we’ll know what’s in it), debate freely, and vote on legitimately (or even propose amendments to the existing Constitution); and they continue to advocate the abandonment of the contract, then they will rightly be considered traitors and seditionists; and they risk being treated as such by Americans, unpleasant as that may be to contemplate.
The Constitution is not the problem.
Rampant jackassery is.
