We already have one person in that position doing what he can to that end --- and we can see the results of that almost every day.

It's the actions and intent of the individuals performing the deeds that are insidious. The very fact that it was "secret" makes it all the more shady. I believe Kennedy made a speech that outlines this.
How can they abuse the First Amendment? If you don't like their message, ignore it or counter it.

Anybody is allowed to coordinate a message with others until it involves the violent overthrow of the government. Prior restraint is unconstitutional, and that shouldn't change because you disagree with the message.
