This is Eric Greitens. He was the Governor of Missouri, for a year and a half, before he had to resign, amid allegations of sexual assault and improper campaign financing. He is now running for US senate.
Over the weekend, Adam Kinzinger, one of two Republicans on the January 6 Committee, received a death threat by mail. The letter warned that he, his wife and young child would be executed for his participation in the Committee. The very next day, Greitens released a video ad, saying it was time to go RINO hunting. RINO stands for Republican in name only. It shows him, armed with a shotgun, and, an armed assault team, storming a house and throwing in a flash bang. Once they storm in, Greiten announces:
“Join the MAGA crew. Get a RINO hunting permit. There is no bagging limit”
No outcry, at all, from his fellow Republicans. This is Trump’s America. This type of political discourse needs to be crushed. The level of death threats against those who don’t support Trump is skyrocketing. If it is not crushed right now, the deterioration of American democracy will explode.
And for us smug Canadians who say it can’t happen here. Think twice. It already is. Politicians being attacked during campaigns. Rocks thrown. We all need to be on guard against this lunacy.
