Could it happen in United States? Canada House of Commons passes anti-Islamophobia motion

Thank God, we have a 1st amendment in the U.S. Constitution that would make passing such a motion here very difficult to do. 
But, that doesn't mean our Libs aren't paying attention to their northern brethren itching for a chance to try it here.   

CBC reports the House of Commons has passed M-103, a non-binding motion condemning Islamophobia and religious discrimination.

All NDP and nearly all Liberal MPs supported the motion, which passed 201-91. The majority of Conservative MPs voted against, with leadership candidate Michael Chong and Simcoe North MP Bruce Stanton voting in favour. Mississauga Liberal MP Gagan Sikand and Barrie Conservative MP Alex Nuttall both abstained.

The vote follows months of bitter debate and a series of protests and counter-protests across the country over whether the private member's motion would limit free speech or single out Islam for special treatment in Canadian law.

I very much object to the term Islamophobia to begin with.  It's a loaded term meant to squelch a contrary view without a debate.  Exactly the way Liberals operate.
