Quotes

Fred Surber: Well, the understanding I have on the six million is that... like a lot of people believe is like the Nazis in Germany murdered six million people... and according to the war records I've been able to find, pertaining to World War Two, there was something like nearly five million Jews involved, but as far as killing them, they weren't. Most of them were... I don't recall exactly what the term is, to concentration camps.

An early look at the underside of Far Right politics
10 July 2001 | by (Marblehead, MA) – See all my reviews

One of the earliest films made about the Radical Right, alerted the world to neo-nazis in California. Because the characters were nearly parodies of Nazis, few took the movement seriously, but as later events showed they were indeed serious and building sympathy for a world spinning out of their comfort zone.

Worth seeing both as an early cinema verite look at the Far, Far Right, and as a important historical insight into a movement that within a decade would have the whole country nervously looking over its shoulder at killings and robberies by a country-wide band of neo-nazis.
