So he only used the word "gauleiter" which, despite its Nazi origins, is in widespread common use in English and a few other languages to mean a political appointee of one sort or another - as are soviet terms such as commissar.

That would be Germany, historically a nation that has only spread peace, love and understanding in Europe?
