That's an interesting point, but do you have any evidence of such
phenomena in other open source projects?  Just because something happens
in US politics doesn't mean it's likely to happen in a technical project
populated with volunteers.

Nope, no evidence (but I suspect most of what any of us are suggesting has something we can directly compare against 😉). This is just a potential worry of mine.
