West Point Graduate Shows His Communist Bona Fides

Sep 28, 2017

A West Point graduate is being investigated for posting his pro-communist beliefs on social media. In one picture he showed off a red shirt underneath his uniform with a picture of Che Guevara on it. He wrote, “In case there was any lingering doubt, hasta la victoria simepre.” In another picture of himself, he was holding his hat with the message “communism will win” written inside.. The Army announced that it was investigating 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone. "Second Lieutenant Rapone's actions in no way reflect the values of the U.S. Military Academy or the U.S. Army." "As figures of public trust, members of the military must exhibit exemplary conduct, and are prohibited from engaging in certain expressions of political speech in uniform. Second Lieutenant Rapone's chain of command is aware of his actions and is looking into the matter. The academy is prepared to assist the officer's chain of command as required.”
