Nice posters, as a person who has been to war, the warning they tell is very real and very poignant to me.

The US made quite a few anti-Japanese/Nazi movies as well. I'm sure these were very inspirational at ...

There were even some pretty racist cartoons, like "Tokio Jokio" and "Bugs Bunny Nips the Nips".
But of course at the time it wasn't considered offensive, since the Japanese were one of the enemies.
I don't think it started with Hollywood: There were some posters from WWI that demonized the Germans, and children's books I've read from that period tend to insult them as well. From what I've seen online I cannot tell if the (then small) film industry was doing likewise.
The car is red. I am not.

Out of curiosity, what war were you in?

Are you watching too many Hollywood movies? Get real!

I don't watch many Hollywood movies. Don't like it meeting real people who put their life on the line for what they believe in real life, not a computer gamer. If you are interested, I don't play online games
