From their website, Defense of Democracies says that their mission is to "support and encourage policies, procedures and laws necessary to defeat terrorism."
In other words, they think the government's efforts to spy on its citizens is a good thing and that not being allowed to is tantamount to treason.
Newsweek is reporting that the organization is funding a $2 million dollar television advertising campaign, aimed at Democratic House of Representative members in their home districts. They claim that these democrats have allowed terrorism to thrive because the Democrats didn't support a Bush administration-supported domestic spying bill.
“Terrorists could be plotting a major attack now, but without this legislation, our intelligence agencies may not be able to listen in,” said Clifford D. May, president of Defense of Democracies. “Regrettably, the Democratic leadership of the House of Representatives has put our lives in more danger by playing politics with this bill.”
Of course, it can ALSO be argued that were it not for our fearless leader banging the war drum and conning the US into an unjustified war in a country that, prior to our deployment, had little to no terrorist activity to begin with, we probably wouldn't have to worry so much about the state of our national security now.
How dare those Democrats not approve a bill that gives the government pretty much carte blanch to listen in on phone conversations any time they want! I mean, ATT and Verizon both worked very hard to violate our freedoms of privacy and these darn Democrats are reluctant to let them continue in their Bush administration-encouraged efforts. Its a breach of national security! The evil terrorist threats could be plotting against us at this very moment and we would have no idea because of some silly little things like THE BILL OF RIGHTS getting in our way.
