Missouri State Senate Majority Leader Calls Highway Patrol on Eric Greitens After Former Governor Posts Ad with Guns

US Senate candidate from Missouri Eric Greitens released an ad on Monday showing the former Navy SEAL carrying a weapon and leading a group of armed soldiers  saying he is hunting RINOs (Republicans in name only.)

The video has gone viral since it was posted at 8:30 a.m. CDT with well over one million views on Twitter.

The Greitens campaign is encouraging supporters to become ‘RINO hunters.’ Facebook reportedly took down the ad.

Twitter has chosen to leave the ad up but with a disclaimer and limitations on sharing and commenting.

“I’m Eric Greitens, Navy SEAL, and today we’re going RINO hunting. The RINO feeds on corruption and is marked by the stripes of cowardice. (Flash bang grenades explode as military team and Greitens enters home.)  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.”


Eric Greitens responded to criticism from Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) who commented, “Let’s place the blame for this violent ad where it belongs, at the doorsteps of Kevin McCarthy & Mitch McConnell. They’ve failed to confront & condemn the MAGA radicals of their party. Now it’s out of control & threatens everyone’s freedom.” Greitens mockingly replied, “Did Fang Fang write this?”


The left is in full meltdown over the symbolic ad — It’s all they have to talk about as the country burns around them and their policies.

This afternoon the Greitens Campaign responded to critics of their new ad in a statement to The Gateway Pundit.

From the Greitens Campaign:  “Woke, weak RINOs have surrendered to the radical Leftists at every turn.  We will send the RINOs home and replace them with true America First fighters!”

On Monday afternoon Missouri State Senate Majority Leader Caleb Rowden said he contacted the Missouri Highway Patrol following the release of the ad.

This sounds like the Democrats’ Red Flag Laws?
