Yes, it happened like 2 weeks ago.

Either way, it's a really good painting!

What stereotype is that? That they like blowing stuff up? Or that they want to scare people into joining up?

The common stereotype is that Militia Members are redneck racists that have connections to the KKK and Neo Nazi Parties.

Infact, most militia members are citizens that are over prior service with the military and wish to continue to keep their training useful and also normal folks that wish to be prepared incase something major happens like an invasion, war, civil disturbance, hurriance, flooding, riots, and other events.

The Watts Riots and Hurricane Katrina are huge reasons why some folks join militia groups. They don't want to wait on government support and enforcement. So they train to do it themselves.

Most militia groups are CERT certified and work in cooperation with local Law Enforcement and community.

Others just want to be able to defend their family, commnity, and country incase the SHTF.

I don't see that picture as particularly racist, Neo Nazi or KKK-like. They do seem to see Russian-made things as hostile though, which is a little racist (the 2 AH/CHs are Mi-24s)

It can't be racist since "Russian" isn't a race. The target audience lived through the cold war. If you have to put tech on an ad that will be most captivating for that particular demographic, what other choice is there besides Russian?

"black", "white" etc aren't races either, yet "racism" denotes prejudice against ethnic groups, religion etc in the wider sense.

American for example. Like "traitors", or spies among the military. Aren't militas also meant for the eventuality that the governments turns agaisnt the people?
