Yes, this conflation of "political" with "party politics" never fails to grind my gears. It was indeed a political action, even more especially because it was directed at government operations ("politics" is by definition about systems of governance).

He could have said, "this is not about supporting one party or another - the govt's actions are reprehensible and I cannot allow my software to enable them" and that would have made his point.

Acting as if "politics" is simply a dirty word rather than the concept of how we are governed - which concerns absolutely everyone - is how we end up with the kind of governments we have, good or appalling.
