An active duty Army officer who recently graduated from West Point showed his disdain for capitalism by revealing a hidden message written under his hat (often referred to as a cover in the military) that said communism will win in a picture spreading across social media.
Over the weekend Spenser Rapone, an officer with the United States Army, posted a picture from his Twitter account (@punkproletarian) featuring a picture of himself in his military dress attire showing a hand written message saying COMMUNISM WILL WIN, while also holding up his clenched fist in a well known communist salute.
The tweet contained a single hashtag, #VeteransForKaepernick, a nod to NFL player Colin Kaepernick who started the trend of kneeling during Americas National Anthem, which is played prior to his football games. Since Kaepernicks act of protest against perceived injustices against minorities in America, more NFL players have followed his lead, which has resulted in thousands of fans burning their teams jerseys and gear to show their disgust at the politicizing of football.
Spenser Rapone followed up with an additional tweet, just in case there was any lingering doubt about his message, showing him opening his dress coat to reveal a t-shirt with the face of late Marxist revolutionary and guerrilla leader Che Guevara, a common hero of socialists and communists.
Spencer Rapone confirmed the authenticity of the photo in a comment to LawNewz, but is in the field until Friday and was not able to answer more detailed questions.
Internet sleuths later found an Instagram account sharing the same username as Rapone, @punkproletarian, which featured various images supporting communist propaganda and a card that had the phrase Kill every last capitalist written on it in glitter, along with the famous communist hammer and sickle logo.
Rapones Instagram avatar features a picture of himself, but he has since made the account private. However, icons of a star along with the communist hammer and sickle appear at the end of his tagline.
Ironically, America and its system of capitalism has provided Rapone with a life of prosperity well beyond what any socialist country could ever offer, along with the opportunity to become an Army officer, although that fact appears lost on him.
The obvious question is, if Rapone has so much hatred for America and capitalism, then why join the United States military and fight to defend the values and freedom in which the nation was founded upon?
Only Rapone can answer that, but I cant imagine soldiers under his command trusting his judgment, orders or ability to defend them should America enter a conflict with a communist country. In fact, it wouldnt be hard to imagine Rapone ditching his Army uniform in favor of an outfit featuring the communist hammer and sickle logo in order to fight against the capitalist values of America that he is supposedly sworn to defend.
The fact that someone who spreads a message such as kill every last capitalist and admits he hates capitalists, and by extension America, is going to be leading young Americans into battle should be cause for concern among every citizen who loves their country as well as his fellow soldiers.
This is how far the left/socialists have infected every American institution that was built to defend freedom, natural born human rights and prosperity for ALL.
Note the cowardly manner of his displays. And throw him out of the service.
Talk about someone ripe for fragging...
Isn’t this a violation of the military code of conduct?
And why would we allow seditious, potential saboteurs to enroll in any OCS program?
Shouldn’t he of already been arrested and locked up for this??
I think he is posturing to be told he is unsuitable for the Army and thus get a free education. The USG is likely to accommodate him and to avoid the bad PR not try to collect the tuition. If he can make some minority claim then definitely that is what will happen.
This punk must never get a commission. Never.
Well, at least you didn’t direct traffic elsewhere to see your stolen content.
Well done, you have stolen honorably.
Why is it that communism is never happy with what it’s already destroyed?
Why does it always feel the need to infiltrate prosperous capitalist societies and corrode it from within?
When I see stuff like this, all I can think is, “okay fine, let’s concede half the country to ‘them’ geographically. Everyone who wants to be communist can live there and everyone that wants to live capitalist can move to the other”
But of course, they will never even accept that. Why?
Because then they will be stuck on the same boat with a bunch of other communists who want nothing more than to live off the state, and their boat will sink.
And if we did successfully divide America and the communist boat started sinking while the capitalist boat prospered high, they would simply infiltrate and and subvert people on the capitalist side because they are never happy with wht they have already ruined.
Communists at West Point...Gays at USAFA...
I long for the days when Navy was included in Playboys top 10 college sex scandals...
We are doomed. Many love Che, Mao. I am glad I am my age right now....do not want to be around when they get their wish of eating dirt and dying young.
Meanwhile all the global elite will be living high on the hog on private islands and fenced in mansions.
The world is a dangerous place. He might fall down and hurt himself...
Isn’t diversity grande?
Looks like the next ‘Bowe Bergdahl’. What’s broken in our military to allow this twit through?
He’s so stupid that he doesn’t know how badly he’s screwed himself. His first CO and enlisted men won’t be to kind to him once they find out who and what he is. Unless they are a segment of the black panthers or the CP, he’s screwed.
Doesn't graduation from West Point come with a commission?
Naval academy graduates are commissioned as Ensigns, IIRC.
That ugly goofball needs to be removed. He has dishonored the uniform and is not worthy of service.
He appears to be a loser that has had everything handed to him in life. He doesn’t seem to fit in with others because he’s a dysfunctional weirdo.
I call shenanigans on this.
Seems too ridiculous. Why would he get into the service only to ruin his career.
I would love to attend this punk's court martial...assuming that he Army doesn't decide to give him some sort of administrative discharge/release.
