Who said it?

Something like “All totalitarianism starts with the impulse to protect”.  Via his Facebook page, Mayor Ted Wheeler, Portland, OR, is withholding a city permit for a gathering (maybe 2) because he objects to the likely content.  No word on when such a planned gathering would eventually be permitted; my guess is never.   To paraphrase Tom Wolfe, the long shadow of fascism is always landing on the United States and has landed in Portland.
