Not "any political text" and not just "of GNU" nor just "in GNU
packages", but any non-free content in any packages, regardless of
origin. It's just a sad fact that the GNU packages are the ones with the
most prominent such text.

They probably don't have as strong principles regarding the freedoms
granted to their users regarding _everything_ they receive and thus
aren't bothered by shipping non-modifiable political texts, whether from
GNU or anyone else.
