Scratch a Progressive and you'll find a Robespierre

From the comments section of a post by Ann Althouse, "Accused College Rapists Have Rights, Too/The victims deserve justice. The men deserve due process."
virgil xenophon said...
"Scratch a Russian and you'll find a Tartar"---Old saying

"Scratch a Progressive and you'll find a Robespierre" ---New saying.
Althouse has spent a lot of time and effort trying to cultivate an intelligent commentariat and the benefits are beginning to show. Vis-a-vis this comment and the new saying, while it may wrong in a general sense, there are certainly more than enough instances to warrant the nervous laugh arising from "Scratch a Progressive and you'll find a Robespierre."
