I wonder who that might be. Seriously, who was it?

That is not entirely true. There are some nationalistic things here and 
there as there are in every Wikipedia, but admins do not dictate POVs. 
There are many political differences between the admins, but still the 
project is pretty NPOV if you ask me. On the other hand, political and 
whatnot flamewars can emerge if there are trolls that ignite them and 
unfortunately, we've had a couple of them recently.
All in all, I wouldn't be concerned :D
