Inside every progressive is a little Gauleiter.
Beth Ann didn't recognize the reference, and you may not, either. But under the Nazi regime, every level of society had a boss assigned by the party to keep everyone in line. The lowest level, the boss of a village or township (old German Gau), was a Gauleiter. I mean that the mayor exemplifies the desire to exercise petty tyranny which is endemic on the Left these days.
And, as I said yesterday, the only proper response to such petty tyrants is, "Go to hell." Which is not a term of abuse, but actual directions; for those already heading that way, it's an invitation to leave early and beat the rush.
