‘Communist’ West Point Graduate

‘Communist’ West Point Graduate

West Point grad should be booted over promoting communism

In one photo, 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone is seen wearing a Che Guevara shirt under his uniform. WHO IS Che Guevara? In the other photo, he reveals the words “communism will win” are written inside his hat. The photos were taken at his graduation in May 2016.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio wants officials at West Point to revoke the commission of an officer who tweeted photos of himself with pro-communist messages while in uniform.  Rubio wrote to acting Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy this week, calling the images an “extreme embarrassment” for the U.S. military, according to the Military Times.

“It is extremely concerning that someone who so often expressed such hostile views towards the United States’ system of government was able to obtain a commission,” he wrote. “(His) revolutionary ideas were harbored long before he was commissioned as an Army second lieutenant. Were West Point administrators or faculty aware of his views and behavior?”

In 2011, Rapone was deployed to Afghanistan with 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, but was later “removed for standards” from the regiment. That’s when he headed off to West Point.

Rapone is currently serving in the field with 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division. The division has opened an investigation in to his political activities.  He’s been awarded with the Good Conduct Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, an Army Achievement Medal, the Afghanistan Campaign Medal with a single campaign star, and the Combat Infantryman Badge.

He posted photos to Twitter a couple weekends ago in support of NFL sideline protests of the national anthem. “In case there was any lingering doubt, hasta la victoria siempre,” Rapone wrote in one post.  “Hasta la victoria siempre” is a phrase linked to guerrilla leader Che Guevara, which means “until victory, always.”

Senator Rubio this week wrote that “posts on social media by Rapone broadcast his devotion to the communist cause and his plans to infiltrate and sabotage the military.”

“His conduct, writings, and sympathies for American adversaries predates his commission in the Army,” Rubio said. “Therefore, I respectfully request the United States Army immediately nullify Rapone’s commission and pursue all available disciplinary options under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Rapone should be required to pay back in full the cost of his education, and the United States Military Academy should consider revoking his degree.”
Rubio also wants West Point to provide relevant information on West Point’s efforts to “ensure cadets who actively support the destruction of our government do not waste more taxpayer funds or prevent a more worthy candidate from attending.”

THE BOTTOM LINE: Having served in the military myself, and while I respect this America hating Communist’s right to express anything he believes in, he just can’t be allowed to do it while he is in a U.S. military uniform.  This my friend is one of the examples that I have been writing about for years, the infiltration of the enemy into every aspect of the U.S. government.  The inclusion of Muslim     Jihadist and Communist activists in our military is just a very minuscule part of the mass infiltration of America’s enemies into our security agencies, our justice system, our state and federal legislatures, and yes even in the Whitehouse, as we experienced with the last president.  Here is just one of hundreds of examples.

Hooah!  Need I say more?   

Thanks for listening my friend. Now go do the right thing, pray and fight for truth and freedom.
