• West Point Grad Dishonors the Uniform – Proudly Shows He’s a Commie

    West Point grad, Second Lt. Spensor Rapone, showed off his communist beliefs while at graduation and in uniform recently.

    Big mistake.

    According to Army Times the Lieutenant is assigned to the 10th Mountain Division, at least for now.

    Soldiers are not allowed to make political statements while in uniform.

    The US Military Academy issued a statement about the commie sympathizer among their ranks:

    The photos, posted by 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone, show the then-cadet posing with a Che Guevara t-shirt under his uniform and “communism will win” written under his cap at his graduation from the academy in May.

    “Second Lieutenant Rapone‘s actions in no way reflect the values of the U.S. Military Academy or the U.S. Army,” the statement from West Point said.

    Aside from being a complete disgrace to his uniform, his teachers, his classmates and all of America, it appears that this young communist could be in some real trouble. According to the Uniform Code of Military Justice Article 88:

    Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Transportation, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.

    Lt. Rapone goes by the Twitter handle “CommieBebop”. It might be time for this commie-lover to spend some time behind bars or at the very least he should never be allowed into a uniform of our military ever again.
