(Seneca Falls, NY) A man by the name of Jerome Stilts, also known as AldoRaine27 on Twitter and Reddit, went on what the kids are calling a “rant” the other day, lashing out at well-known activists and elected officials alike. In order to not spread his language of hate and nonsense, we have decided not to share with you what he wrote. Instead, we went to his Reddit profile and found that our friend Jerome is quite the Tarantino fan. In fact, in one post, Mr. Stilts reportedly claims to own not one, but two Inglorious Basterds posters in his home.
We decided to catch up with Jerome over direct message on Twitter and ask him exactly what he thinks he is doing with his life. Either he can not see the glaring irony of his actions, or he is something much worse. Here is our conversation.
@EritasDaily: Hello Jerome, thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule writing film reviews for an audience of six internet strangers to meet with us.
@AldoRaine27: Thank you. I have spent years growing my audience and I appreciate your sincere compliment. What did you want to ask me about again?
@EritasDaily: Well you see Jerome, we saw your little rant the other day and wanted to ask you a few questions about what exactly you think that you are doing.
@AldoRaine27: Oh great. Were you wanting to ask me about my stance on immigration or free market reform?
@EritasDaily: No, thanks. I am sure we could find it online, either in your manifesto or a history book. It’s not like y’all really update your opinions on anything. That’s kind of the problem. No, we wanted to ask you how you cannot see the irony in the fact that you are on one hand defending Nazis on Twitter, while on the other hand you own multiple Inglorious Basterd posters?
@AldoRaine27: I see the problem here. You think that just because I defend Nazis, means that I am one, right?
@EritasDaily: Um, yes? Why else would you defend Nazis?
@AldoRaine27: Wow, I get this a lot so I am not surprised. Here, let me break it down for you. I believe in White Nationalism, which makes me believe in the superiority of the Aryan race. I have a Zero tolerance policy when it comes to disrespecting our troops and I am Into My Little Pony. We actually came up with a helpful acronym to remember:
N – Nationalist ideology
A – Aryan race superiority
Z – Zero tolerance for disrespecting our troops
I – Into My Little Pony
So you see, I’m not a Nazi, I’m a N.A.Z.I.
@AldoRaine27: Any other questions?
It is now clear to us that this man does not have an even basic understanding of rational thought and suffers from severe ignorance of simple social constructs. We recommend he read a book or paint a picture or do something to quell the anger within him. If you happen to think that this kind of person is not to be taken seriously, do not trust that instinct. Nazis (or whatever they want to call themselves: still Nazis) are dangerous and although the movie Inglorious Basterds might romanticize certain parts of World War II it maybe shouldn’t, the basic premise of the movie should not be forgotten.
