Before you brought it up we managed to be apolitical. You can discuss this somewhere else.
You can't have one side of the issue (ex. Stallman, GitHub, etc) shouting political propaganda with a megaphone, but as soon as someone disagrees - "OMFG, he brought up politics!? What a vulgar uncivilized brute!!! Fetch my smelling salts, O goodness, I think I shall faint!"
That is not what I'm doing as I'm not the one with the megaphone.
