Of course people are just too stupid to realize they cannot have any rights when it comes to fighting terrorism. Otherwise what would have been the point of the government funding and setting up all those terrorist attacks if they didn't get the removal of basic rights as a result.
Step 1: you create a problem
Step 2: you talk about how horrible said problem is
Step 3: you throw anyone used to create said problem under the bus, and fix it usually at the expense of civil liberties and basic rights that are now gone.
Step 4: Enjoy ruling your new police state free of pesky things like opposite opinions, or people thinking they can stand up to you.

I imagine that most who believe in their constitutional rights would be shocked to find out that makes them an enemy of the US government. Since apparently only terrorists support such "anti freedom" notions. While true patriots blindly do and believe only what their governments tells them to do and think.
