More on the Bush/Ashcroft rights violations

We knew about the "war on drugs" violations[1], but most people said nothing, because they are not drug dealers.
We now know about the "war on terror" violations[2], but most people are saying nothing, because they are not middle eastern immigrants.
How far does it have to go before we say stop?? Do we not hear echos of Niemoller in our denial?

Who's next? Non Christians? "Welfare Queens"? Gun Owners? Members of alternative parties? Environmentalists? People with "too much" unpaid debt?

[2] ACLU on national security, ACLU on immigrant rights
