Thank you, ACLU

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND — A United Nations human rights body expressed grave concerns today about the record of human rights in the United States. The American Civil Liberties Union with a delegation of 10 and working with a broad coalition of other groups is in Geneva to monitor the examination of the United States the U.N. Human Rights Committee (HRC).

In a two-day session that concluded today, the committee members pressured the United States for answers on the following issues:

The sentencing of children to life without parole and the disproportionate incarceration of minorities;
The militarization of the border;
The failure to prevent human rights violations and respond in a non discriminatory manner to Hurricane Katrina;
The failure to end racial profiling practices, specifically the profiling of South Asian convenience store employees in Georgia;
Warrantless spying on ordinary Americans;
The abuse of women in prison; and
The indefinite detention, rendition and torture of non-citizens.

“The U.S. should be ashamed of itself,” said Ann Beeson, Director of the ACLU’s Human Rights Program. “The review by the Human Rights Committee was a stark and all too accurate condemnation of the state of rights in America.”

Dear ACLU,

Thank you so much for being concerned with my civil liberties. As an American, i can certainly appreciate the freedoms we have and want to protect them in any way I can. I also would like to say that it’s impossible to be free when you’re f*cking dead. I don’t know of any case where the constitutional rights of Americans have been violated because of President Bush’s Administration. Your organization has become such a tool of the Internationale singers and the MoveOn crowd, that you have forgotten that without an America and its citizens, there will be no need to protect civil rights. If you think Bush and the GOP are violating rights of Americans, you’re gonna have a f*ckin’ stroke over what the worldwide Islamic caliphate would do to American rights. Better get fitted for that Burkha now, Ann. You’re gonna need it, the way you’re going.
