Interesting facts on the movie:

Seth wears a shirt during the basketball game featuring the number 88. This is a naziskin code for HH, or “Heil Hitler,” H being the 8th letter of the alphabet. It also refers to a set of 88 precepts written by the neo-nazi leader David Lane. The 88 precepts are rules and concepts that all White Supremacists live by.

The quotation that concludes Danny’s paper is from the closing words of Abraham Lincoln’s first Inaugural Address in 1861.

The character of Cameron Alexander is based on Tom Metzger, leader of the White Aryan Resistance (WAR), an extremist white supremacy group based in southern California.
