It isn't just the FSFE.  Back in Roman times they would "demote" people
to be non-citizens and take away their vote, like demoting the Fellows
to be Supporters.  Every now and then they would kill some slaves to
keep all the other slaves in fear.

Romans used lions and tigers to kill their slaves, now it is email
lynchings but isn't it the same mindset?

I wasn't kicked out, I resigned:

A few weeks later Matthias Kirschner had a meeting with Chris Lamb
(Debian) in Italy somewhere and decided to make ongoing hostilities.
Why this vendetta, why didn't they let sleeping dogs lie after I resigned?

So it looks like you are the one spreading fake news.

Look at the FSF archives and see if you can find the message I posted in
support of RMS:

Notice that messages posted by Jean Louis and I today don't appear there
either.  Censorship.  Smoking gun.
