The code of conduct applies only to Debian controlled spaces.  If you
believe that Debian should censor Linus for not following a code of
conduct that Debian has agreed to --- but which he hadn't --- that
seems equivalent to how the US has tried to exert extraterritorial
control using its law to control data stored in Ireland.

I dare say that the Debian Code of Conduct would be violated pretty
thoroughly in all/most military training camps; I await Debian
Developers advocating that anyone who has ever been a drill instructor
should never be invited or allowed to attend a Debian event on the
grounds that he or she has violated the CoC in situations outside of
Debian --- and he/she might do so at a Debian event!  (Or that this
would somehow be sanctioning their behaviour in other contexts.)

And I have no idea what you are talking about with respect to Debian's
Diversity Statement relating to Linus's statements.
