A Republican Senate candidate has gone too far in a new campaign ad. Missouri candidate Eric Greitens wants Americans to know “its RINO season” as he promotes his campaign for Senate.
Greitens is seen in the ad with a shotgun in hand and an armed tactical unit invading a home urging voters to get their “RINO hunting permit.” RINO referring to the Republicans In Name Only.
“Join the MAGA crew. Get a RINO hunting permit. There’s no bagging limit, no tagging limit and it doesn’t expire until we save our country.”
Facebook has taken down the video for violating their policy on violence and incitement content. Twitter has allowed the ad to remain on the platform with a note stating even though the content was considered “abusive behavior” it was in the public’s best interest to remain accessible.
Tony Katz can’t help but point out the irresponsible lunacy of Greitens’ ad.
“This ad is so ignorant, so dumb. I never use the word “dumb” or “stupid” on-air because it ends conversations, but Eric Greitens is a dumb guy. He’s a moron and this is a ridiculous ad. If you want to talk about voting out RINOs feel free, but hunting?!”
Greitens became a Democrat in 2015 and is the former Governor of Missouri.
