I think you mean it infringes on privacy, and you are correct.
Constitutional right to privacy is a contentious issue in US politics, hence I went for the specific, strict-text based one.

As for the "Destroying Terrorism Act" part, I couldn't find anything about that on the Google, but if it is what I think it is, then I'll state for the record that calls for, incitement of and promotion of violence are not and have never been considered protected speech, at least in the United States.
