Everyone is entitled to their opinion and their own politics, but you
should also be respectful of those that do not want politics involved
in FFmpeg. Its not the place for it.
Do we add political statements about some internet-related happenings
from other countries as well then? Why limit this to the US only? If
we have one popup, we might as well have 5?

Getting into politics is a slippery slope, and its best to just stay out of it.
