Yes, because it covers free speech, period! It does not say specifically about "inciting violence" and that term is undefined in our language. There is a reference to peaceful assembly which means no violence on the part of the speaker or the listener. Speech that might make one angry, even to the point of violence which might mean bodily harm or property damage, is so nebulous is has no exact meaning to any two (or more) listeners.
Provocation (to stir anger) is in the eye of the beholder, therefore, the beholder must control his/her violence or suffer the consequences required by law. When you add the "radical Islam" culture to the American culture they are like oil and water; they don't mix. We pay special attention to the so-called "separation of church and state" in our government and in the Islamic culture they are "one and the same," since the Mullahs truly are the ones who run the country and rule the people.
