Is anyone really surprised at this sort of abuse from government? The more power we keep giving to government, the worse this sort of thing is going to continue.
Personally... most organizations like the ACLU are more about their agenda than freedom. If they were true freedom fighters... they would be defending the Constitution... rather than specific causes.

Roger Baldwin and Crystal Eastman founded the ACLU in 1920 along with three other organizations dedicated to the most leftist of causes. The histories of these two individuals belie their claims of patriotism and respect for the Constitution.
Baldwin openly sought the utter destruction of American society. Fifteen years after the founding of the ACLU, Baldwin wrote:
I am for Socialism, disarmament and ultimately, for the abolishing of the State itself … I seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class and sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal.
That the article failed to mention these salient points is not surprising in that the article was written by a right wing lawyer who fronts an organization dedicated to restricting civil rights and appears on a right wing extremist website of dubious credibility.
Ya gotta love it when commies make excuses for other commies...such loyalty to depravity.
