That is difficult to believe.  Bigotry by one or two people, a cover up by 
them and mistakes, maybe.  Cowardice, no way.  I don't believe John Sullivan 
or Richard Stallman are cowards who would bend to imagined public pressure 
the way you say here.  

Richard Stallman's political notes contain many statements in support of 
Chelsea Manning.  He is famously thourough and consistent in his opinions and 
has kept them despite continuous well funded and deeply personal smear 
campaigns against him.  

I do not know John Sullivan's opinions as well, but I know he is no coward.  
It takes courage to advocate free software in the US.  Doing so will get you 
put on various government and private shit lists, which cost you harassment 
and job opportunities.  In 2003 he urged me on to advocacy I did not have the 
courage for and had already committed himself to a life of advocacy.  Given 
his background, he knew better than most what he was getting into.  

What makes you think this?
