ACLU Attacks US Sovereignty

The American Civil Liberties Union, an organization of lawyers supposedly concerned with upholding the Constitution in general and the Bill of Rights contained therein in particular, is attempting to subvert the sovereignty of the United States of America with an appeal to the United Nations:
NEW YORK - The American Civil Liberties Union and the U.S. Human Rights Network today urged the U.N. Human Rights Committee to hold the U.S. government accountable for flagrant and repeated violations of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).
This is a direct and blatant attempt to undermine the Constitutional authority of the US government, and an unmistakable indication that the true purpose of the ACLU has nothing to do America's Constitution, Which the ACLU claims to revere.

From Jay at Stop the ACLU:
As sickening as this is; it is only one step in the ACLU’s agenda to undermine America’s sovereignty and freedom that so many soldiers have sacrificed and died to preserve. The ACLU are obviously frustrated by their inability to advance their radical agenda more quickly under the U.S. Constitution, and are now determined not only to convince the American judiciary to look to international law, but also to use it as a means to their ends. They hold it as a higher authority than our own Constitution and are more than willing to sacrifice our sovereignty in their pursuit to radically force change on America to fit their own radical views.
Dr. Rusty Shackleford of The Jawa Report writes:
As I force all of my students to memorize, it starts this way: We the people of the United States.... I don't seem to recall anything in the Constitution about the U.N., the international community, or international law.
From Richard at Hyscience:
However, there are increasingly - leading jurists, law professors and other legal experts who are turning to foreign courts and international bodies to subvert the Constitution, who are in effect, seeking to undermine America's ideals and the sovereignty with which we preserve them.
And chief among those that are working to subvert the American Constitution is the ACLU and it's supporters.
The ACLU teeters on the brink of open treason in their efforts to force their fringe views of society on the American people.
