Anachronisms 

The movie is supposed to take place in 1971-72. Throughout some of the bar scenes and home scenes, the patrons and klan members were drinking bottles of Schlitz beer that had bar codes on the back of the labels. Bar codes were not introduced until 1974.

Kennebrew Beauregard uses the term "super predator" in the prologue, which takes place in the 1960s. The term was not coined until the 1990s.

Character error 

The whole movie revolves around Ron and his job at the Colorado Springs Police Department. However, when he chases Connie, he says "Colorado State Police." He never transfers to the state police, nor is the C.S.P.D. a state police force.

Crew or equipment visible 

Towards the end of the film during the car pursuit sequence, a vehicle quickly rounds a bend in a sweeping crane shot. A jump cut is clearly visible during this shot (presumably from stitching two takes together) and then there's an immediate cut to a take from inside the car rounding the same bend again.

In this second shot, one can clearly see the entire technocrane thru the car window as it passes thru the shot - in addition to roughly 15 obvious crew members standing around it.

Factual errors 

The detective who inspired the Flip Zimmerman character was not Jewish in real life. Much like Zimmerman though, he was a non-religious man who found his detached views on faith changed by his experiences dealing with the KKK.

Plot holes 

If the members wants to hide the real purpose of "The Organization", there is no explanation to show a newspaper advertising with the name "Ku Klux Klan".
