While I've been reading the open letter that is circulating in support of rms (they write something about misunderstanding rms, that are mostly just caused because rms sticking logical linguistic blabla...) I decided to take a quick look what rms is recently writing in their blog, just to find for 24 March 2021: "Protesters attacking cops" and "The protesters attacked cops violently and injured some severely." ...and ending with "The left needs to adopt disciplined nonviolence...."
That's not about linguistic, gramma, logic, bla. It's just repeating cops mouthpieces, and that's not because rms is original clever, that is because he does follow believes that are simply routed in ideology. And calling that out, is ok! even more if you reside in position of power that makes others uncomfortable joining. Obviously this was just me picking up an example from the last 2 days of rms blog posts, and that was just to present a counter argument to "but rms is just about logic", and not not further related to the criticism that is circulating to get rms off the fsf board/dismantle fse.
