Is America full of Nazis?, 1 December 2002
Author: karLcx from Stanmore, NSW

I'm sure glad I don't live in such a hateful, narrow minded, black-and-white, religious extremist society such as the characters of this movie do. Knowing that this is a true story makes me want to vomit. Also, reading some of the IMDb user comments already posted here, I have to wonder how long the people of the world that want liberty from totalitarian hate mongers will have to wait... or if they'll ever get true freedom from dictators-moral or otherwise.
