Candidate for governor sells ‘ISIS hunting’ permits with pretty special autograph, CAIR is not happy

An ex Navy SEAL and candidate for governor of Missouri had a fun idea to raise money for his campaign that drew the ire of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Eric Greitens is raising funds by selling a bumper sticker with the words “ISIS Hunting Permit” emblazoned on it that says it expires “when we defeat this evil.”

The stickers are being sold for $10 and for a $100 buyers can even get one of the stickers autographed by Rob O’Neill, the former SEAL who actually killed Usama bin Laden.

“All of these people who are out there, they want to join our mission,” Greitens told Fox 2 Now. “They want to become part of the team- part of the campaign- and we thought this would be a fun way to let people know about my biography and that we all need to stand together against terrorism.”

It’s hard to imagine any American citizen who loves the country would take offense to a sticker that names the enemy we are at war with, but CAIR Missouri did.

“The problem is with his target audience. Amongst them are radicals in this country who don’t know the difference between the two [Muslims and radical Islamists],” Faizan Syed, the executive director of CAIR Missouri, told Fox 2 Now.

“Those are the people who we have to be worried about when they get a bumper sticker saying ‘here’s your permit to attack ISIS’. When they see a woman at Walmart with her children and they say, ‘this looks like ISIS, I’m going to attack ISIS,’ that is when the real trouble begins,” he added.

Greitens kind of agreed.

“The reason there’s this confusion is that unfortunately we have a commander-in-chief who is unwilling to say the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism’,” Greitens said.

“The people ISIS have hurt the most, who’ve been murdered the most, are the Muslim community,” he said. “We have a problem not with Islam, there’s a problem with radical Islamic terrorism. As leaders, we need to be very clear there’s a difference,” he said.

Greitens spoke to Fox News about the stickers, and his campaign, on Friday.
