* AcceptableTargets: *[[LongList inhales deeply]]*... Jews, blacks, Hispanics, Chinese, Arabs, mixed-race people, liberals, conservatives, moderates, libertarians, communists, feminists, LGBTQ people, crossdressers, fetishists, sadomasochists, rednecks, interracial couples, the "unfit", "lesser" whites, and all white people who don't also hate the above.
* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Considering the book's key premise is that "all non whites are inferior untermench who [[Series/DoctorWho WILL BE EXTERMINATED!!! EXTERMINATE!!! EXTERMINATE!!!]]", and that all whites who take issue with this are just as subhuman in their "race treason" (and thus slated for extermination the same time as the Jews, Blacks, Hispanics, etc), this book has hardly been a fondly appreciated literary classic. Most bafflingly the book also [[PretenderDiss targets almost all white supremacists (i.e., its target audience) as being gutless cowards and drunks]] who will be swept away along with the untermench by the new "master race" which entirely consists of omnicidal Nazi psychopaths.
** TruthInTelevision: Nazis and neo-Nazis alike had little respect for the Ku Klux Klan, as ''AmericanHistoryX'' makes clear.
*** Also since Neo Nazism tends to attract fringe people, a lot of white supremacist ranks aren't filled with the brightest or most fit people. Especially fitting since Hitler himself didn't live up to his ideals of Aryan Purity.
* BileFascination: This book's notoriety has drawn the attention of people unaffiliated with its insane political viewpoints.
* CanonSue: All the white people.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny / {{Narm}}: THE ENTIRE BOOK. It's so stupid and impossible that it can stop being disturbing for readers and just a source of humor. Whether or not it's disturbing that neo nazis actually believe talking points in the book is another matter.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: There is practically nobody worth rooting for in this book. Turner and his cohorts are {{Villain Protagonist}}s and everyone else seems to be a racial stereotype.
* DesignatedHero[=/=]DesignatedVillain: Even with literally every single racist stereotype Neo Nazis have about blacks, jews, liberals, gays, feminists, non nazi white people, etc, in full effect and taken UpToEleven, the "villains" still seem far less evil and monstrous than the "heroes" due in no small part to the lack of omnicidal extermination campaigns.
* EightDeadlyWords: Why care about any of the characters when the "heroes" are genocidal psychopathic Neo-Nazis and the villains are all racial, political, and sexual stereotypes?
* EsotericHappyEnding: [[spoiler:All Jews and Non-Whites have been annihilated... in a lengthy campaign involving nuclear and chemical warfare, which has reduced Earth to a tenth its population and will most likely yield a severe fallout. But hey, at least this means the monstrous protagonists will die horrifically in said fallout.]]
* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop
* FridgeHorror: Since the whole book is from the [[UnreliableNarrator perspective of Earl Turner,]] there is the (very likely) possibility that he could be lying or exaggerating the "villainy" of the System and minorities. Meaning him and his colleagues are killing normal people and justifying it with their ideology.
* GeniusBonus: Take a good look at the colors of the book cover: [[ThoseWackyNazis red, white, and black]]. Look familiar together, don't they?
* HarsherInHindsight: Barring every attempt to make this book a SelfFulfillingProphecy, the climax of the book involves the protagonist flying a plane into the Pentagon. Making it worse, the book's author responded to the 9/11 attacks by ''writing in favor of al-Qaeda''. He did reject any notion that white supremacists should form an alliance with Arab terrorists, [[WeAREStrugglingTogether though only on the grounds that his racism overrode his desire for terrorism against Jews]]. This book also inspired Timothy [=McVeigh=] to orchestrate the Oklahoma City bombing, and few members of law enforcement were surprised; one FBI agent said that when he heard of the attack, he was reminded of the book "within the hour".
* IdiotPlot: The plot kicks off with the US population, ''including the Supreme Court,'' accepting the outlawing of privately-owned guns, second amendment be damned. In fact, lets cut to the chase and say that ''everyone'' who isn't racist is a moron nigh-on by default.
** Not only that but every single action any organization opposed to The Order does is incredibly stupid, to the point that organizations will actively do things that harm themselves for no real reason other than to crudely justify why the revolution is successful in the first place. Three man bands of racist revolutionaries are somehow able to walk right into military bases and steal massive quantities of weapons and even after being caught in the act escape relatively unscathed despite the fact they're driving heavy loaded down trucks full of unsecured explosives.
* MoralEventHorizon: Earl Turner crossed it after [[spoiler: the bombing of the FBI headquarters in Washington DC.]]
* NightmareFuel: [[ThePurge The Day of the Rope...]]. [[spoiler: to cut a long story short, the "heroic white freedom fighters" conquer UsefulNotes/LosAngeles and proceed to massacre all white women who have ever slept with a non white, or even merely been friends with them, and any white man who did the same, as well as any whites who opposed them.]]
** See {{Defictionalization}} on the trivia page.
* OvershadowedByControversy: This book is probably best known for its association with Timothy [=McVeigh=], the Oklahoma City Bomber, and several other Neo-Nazi terrorists.
* RootingForTheEmpire: More than a few readers hoped that the System would destroy the Organization.
* StrawmanHasAPoint: To be expected in a novel with a white supremacist agenda. At one point, the attorney general of the United States government comes on television to describe the [[DesignatedHero heroes]] as "depraved, racist terrorists".
** A libertarian member of the racist organization early in its existence argues (quite correctly) that their wave of terror is doing nothing more than causing the government to clamp down even harder on normal Americans and that they're killing too many innocents which is causing the general public to hate them, which is entirely true. Of course the main character/narrator acts as if the man is insane and executes the man for his objections.
* ValuesDissonance: Partially because of the extreme political values, the book is incredibly divisive. Although one should note most of the population was obviously repulsed by this book when it came out as well.
* VillainProtagonist: Because of the ValuesDissonance, this is one very common interpretation.
