Former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens has released a new campaign ad calling for moderate Republicans, known as RINOS, to be hunted down and shot. RINO stands for “Republicans in name only.” In the video, Eric Greitens, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Missouri, is seen with a shotgun raiding a house alongside a group of heavily armed men in battle gear.

Eric Greitens: “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.”

Facebook has removed the campaign video, and Twitter blocked it from being shared. In 2018, Eric Greitins resigned as governor of Missouri after a woman he was having an affair with accused him of sexual assault and taking nonconsenual nude photographs after he tied her up naked in his basement. Greitins’s ex-wife has also accused him of abusing her and their young son.
