How Awful Is Buffalo Bill? Swastika-Quilt Awful

Buffalo Bill Silence of the Lambs Swastika Jame Gumb Hannibal

“This guy, he can sew!” Clarice tells Crawford, as she realizes that Jame Gumb has dreams of making himself a “women’s suit.” Another repugnant way he puts his sewing skills to use? By making a quilt festooned with orange swastikas. He keeps this quilt next to another, very nice quilt, with a butterfly (we know how much he adores his transformative, winged insects).

He uses his Nazi quilt to hide his very big gun, a kiiinda phallic Colt Python. Buffalo Bill is nuts, is what I’m saying.
