Anyway, when maintaining that the Theosophical Society doesn't interfere with politics, H.P. Blavatsky made one inportant exception:

"Unconcerned about politics; hostile to the insane dreams of Socialism and of Communism, which it abhors ? as both are but disguised conspiracies of brutal force and sluggishness against honest labour; the Society cares but little about the outward human management of the material world." ? WHAT ARE THE THEOSOPHISTS? (HPB CW vol 2).

The reason why TS doesn't interfere into the politics is that it permits Theosophical Society to work in countries with different political regimes - they would see no danger from its side. But communist regimes (with one exception of Cuba with its religious freedom) persecute Theosophical Society, for their ideological basis is materialism of the most baser sort.
So in case of them (and also of nazist regimes which prevent realization of the first object of TS) theosophists and TS at lagre should feel free of this obligation, so it's permitted to undermine them by all possible means.
HPB, with her clairvoyance, could foresee danger of the communist regimes, though there were none yet in her time, and made this important exception.
