I'd been collecting evidence on Pistolis since August. After spotting him on vid w/ TWP during their assault of an interracial couple in Oct, I reported him to the @USMC. Told them I had evidence of his assaults at Charlottesville too. I never heard back.…
It gets worse. According to Pistolis, the feds did investigate him, but only for part of what I reported: being seen on video w/ the neo-Nazi TWP. But because the neo-Nazi TWP was a registered political party, he got off:
Last I checked, you couldn't even hang out with neo-Nazis while serving. Maybe things have changed!
Now, the @USMC even claims to have "multiple layers of screening" for extremism during recruitment:…
And those "multiple layers" failed spectacularly, because along with *on his own Facebook+IG* Pistolis has been a Nazi all over the internet since at least 2012 when he "joined the movement"...and also joined MCJROTC, putting him in even closer proximity to the @USMC than most.
In fact, even after being exposed by @ProPublica/@frontlinepbs earlier this month, he's *still* bein' a Nazi on his newly re-named and cleaned up Gab profile:
Anyway, here's everything the @USMC missed, has continued to miss, and apparently didn't care all that much to see:…
Most importantly, Pistolis assaulted people at least 3 separate times at UTR. Twice at the torch march/statue, once at the daytime rally:
And here he is with the neo-Nazi Traditionalist Worker Party during their assault on an interracial couple in Shelbyville, TN after their "White Lives Matter" rally in October, which he was actually investigated for...and got off.
Again: "Another person with knowledge of the matter, an officer with the Marine Corps, indicated that Pistolis had been questioned by NCIS, but that detectives found no connection to any organized groups or evidence that he posed a threat."…
He re-named from "VasillistheGreek" to "TheJackal" after being outed earlier this month, but Pistolis is still on Daily Stormer if anyone wants to check in and say hello:
Recently re-named his YouTube channel too (…), hid his nazirific favs, and deleted his uploads from the past 8 months, including a video he made featuring clips of him attacking people in Charlottesville. Some of what he was trying to hide:
Also, for christ's sake, if you're going to be a Nazi in the @USMC don't post photos that were obviously taken in your Camp Lejeune barracks room:…
Pistolis' attraction to fascism appeared to begin with his support for Golden Dawn (evident on Disqus especially:…). He even claims to be a GD donor:…
