The same kind of autistic but-software-is-math arguments
There are several kinds of argument against patents from the philosophical and the ethical to the economic and the political, and I don't see any need for anyone to abstain from using any one or more of these kinds of argument if that's what they identify with. (Personally, I prefer making ethical arguments because it makes the injustice of the system more obvious to casual observers.)
There's certainly no need to be offensive about someone choosing, in this case, to make a philosophical argument regardless of whether or not you think it will influence a judge on the topic.
