It's the First Amendment that keeps us protected against folks like CAIR and MAS who want to silence anyone who criticizes Islamism. Such organizations understand that Islamism will never overcome opposition to it in America as long as those who oppose it are allowed to expose its evil nature for all to see. The First Amendment is a key to defeating the Islamists at home, which is why tampering with it is a very bad idea.
