Eric Greitens, a U.S. Senate candidate from Missouri, has a strange sense of humor. But he’s a conservative Republican, so who’s surprised? In an online campaign ad, he suggests fellow conservatives “go out and hunt” so-called RINOs – an acronym for “Republicans in Name Only”. It’s meant as a derogatory term for any Republican political candidate who’s even slightly left of far right, or one step to the left of Adolf Hitler.
With its strong violent overtones, the ad speaks for itself and what the contemporary Republican Party is all about.
