Nobody is trying to do this in the United States. I understand this IS a problem in Canada (see for instance Mark Steyn), but we have the first amendment and changing it would be unthinkable by pretty much everyone.

Don't think it can't happen here. It's just not as overt.

Just ask anyone who doesn't have a "mainstream" opinion.

Oh please. Being told to shut up because your opinion sucks isn’t even remotely the same thing as changing the first amendment.

It's not changing the first amendment, but it's not acting in the spirit of the first amendment. There's the law, and there's the cultural norm. Where the latter goes, the former soon follows.
