I followed the discussion, and I was kind of on the side of everyone saying 
it's the maintainer's prerogative to add / remove. And unless it is a major 
controversial statement in itself, it should be fine. Also, who would say they 
like fascism!? That's going to cause more problems for the person who was 
offended by it.

Let's say we remove it, if there are any complaints?
