Good Catch

What is wrong with this statement on the ACLU's home page?

It is probably no accident that freedom of speech is the first freedom mentioned in the First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." The Constitution’s framers believed that freedom of inquiry and liberty of expression were the hallmarks of a democratic society.
If it isn't immediately obvious, go to American Digest.

UPDATE: Interestingly, an online ad on their page has this statement from Holly Hunter:
I AM NOT AN AMERICAN who believes that questioning or criticizing my government is unpatriotic.
I wonder how much trouble we would get in if we elided all but the words in capital letters:
Not that we would do that or anything. Just, you know, asking.
