While the phrasing may or may not be over the top, I read that more as:

"We shouldn't be held hostage to various threats.  We shouldn't be afraid to
try something because a vocal few are ranting against it."

I could, of course, be very wrong.  However threatening to leave the project
if various things aren't done exactly one's way isn't very respectful either.
