It's a pretty obviously offensive statement. Also, strictly speaking, Patrick was never actually intended to portray a particular mental disability, nor mock those who have them. He's just a token dumb character.

"*American History X has its share of neo-Nazi fans. Though the movie is intended to show that racism is wrong, the neo-Nazi main character is frequently shown in flashbacks to be strong, fierce, proud, articulate and a good leader to his gang. If you edit together all of his triumphant flashback scenes, you could make a pretty decent recruitment video."

This sounds like it should be in Misaimed Fandom instead. This trope is about things that might be offensive, not direct critiques or condemnations of certain things, last I checked.

I would agree with that.
