writing a story that features an alien character, who happens to be a really "internet troll"-ish type with a somewhat godlike tech and a personal army of robots.
He/She (?) is fond of Earth's history and likes contradictions, which leads to massive amounts of Earth references, especially offensive/taboo ones
I'm not entirely sure if it would be considered offensive if:
- The most diverse (in a racial sense) group of organics (non-robots), that accompanies the robots, is called "The Waffle SS".
- The good faction, that follows the Geneva Convention to a fault, has a really similar aesthetics to that of the Nazis.
- The railguns (as the story is sci-fi) used by the good faction are all named after infamous mass-shooters, based on what weapon they used (e.g: the SMG is called "Klebold")
So things that are connected to the Nazis and evil people (and aren't evil by themselves (i.e: not gas chambers or gulags), make an appearance in it, but the ideologies of the good faction are straightforward the opposite.
Would this still be considered offensive by the majority of the readers?
Update 1: I forgot to mention this snippet from the beginning of the book, and it's important in determining the underlying tone.
This book is dedicated to Hitler, who taught us so much about fighting for what we believe in. Rest in pepperoni— Aubergine Man
