You know you’re on to something good when Democrats and Republicans alike start freaking out.
GOP Senate candidate Eric Greitens made a bang with a new advertisement in which he takes shots at “Republicans in name only.”
The former Governor of Missouri, who was rocked with baseless scandal, released the ad on Monday, which shows him with a gun and working with a tactical team to hunt Republicans who more closely align with liberal Democrats.
“The RINO feeds on corruption and is marked by the stripes of cowardice,” Greitens said.
“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.”
We are sick and tired of the Republicans in Name Only surrendering to Joe Biden & the radical Left.

Shortly after the video was posted on Twitter, the platform put a warning label for “abusive behavior” but let it remain up for the “public’s interest.”
Supporters can buy “RINO hunting permit” stickers for $25.
I got my RINO Hunting Permit!

The ad garnered criticism from both sides of the aisle, with several conservative commentators taking pot shots claiming ‘Greitens used to be a Democrat’ — as if that’s relevant at all.
Guess who else was once a Democrat? Donald Trump! Conversely, Elizabeth Warren was once a free-market Republican, and look at her now!
Judging from the response online, it appears conservatives have more of an issue with Greitens’ ad than liberals.
Second Amendment advocate and NRA spokeswomen Dana Loesch decried Greitens’ ad on Twitter, claiming the Senate candidate refused to ‘support Constitutional Carry.’
The guy who made the Missouri capitol a gun-free zone, reversing precedent, and who attacked Missouri’s Second Amendment Preservation Act borrowing verbatim Moms Demand language. He was a Dem until very recently. He’s literally the RINO he pretends to use other men to hunt. https://t.co/46G0oDtA0T

The left wasn’t silent, either.
Florida gun control advocate Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter was killed in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in 2018, also blasted the ad, demanding the FBI get involved.
Yes, you read that correctly.
I have often said issues around gun violence & threats to Democracy are connected. @EricGreitens has an add out calling for gun violence against RINO's, yes against Republicans. @FBI, this deserves your attention. Every American, both Republicans and Democrats, reject this. https://t.co/t7os4wjgS0

Greitens is courting former President Donald Trump’s endorsement ahead of the Republican primary on Aug. 2. He resigned from the governorship in 2018 following shakey allegations of sexual assault and campaign finance violations.
Additional allegations of domestic violence from his ex-wife were later proven to be false.
America First is under attack by conservatives and liberals alike, but one thing remains certain: We can’t stop and won’t stop winning!
