Skip to comments.7 things you need to know about the West Point communist saga
Posted on 10/02/2017 4:21:12 PM PDT by T Ruth
The U.S. Army is probing a West Point graduates pro-communist posts on social media. His father has condemned his political views on social media, and this graduates West Point professor has now been placed on administrative leave.
If you havent been following the saga, you may be overwhelmed by trying to figure out what exactly is going on? Here are the facts:
1. His name is Spenser Rapone, and he is a communist.
This week, 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone, a graduate of West Point Military Academy, posted pro-communist images on social media, including a picture of him holding up his military hat with the message Communism will win written inside, and another image revealing a Che Guevara shirt underneath his military uniform.
2. The Army is investigating Rapones tweets.
4. Rapones father, an elected official, disavowed his sons politics and hinted those views have changed drastically.
Its my belief when he returned back from Afghanistan there was a notable difference in his political views, Richard Rapone wrote. Spenser is my son and I love him dearly however I do not like nor condone his politics, his actions or behavior.
6. Rapones mentor at West Point is now on administrative leave
While attending West Point, Spenser Rapone was mentored by Rasheed Hosein, a professor of Middle East history, who is now on administrative leave for reasons unknown. Hosein holds a Ph.D in Islamic history from the University of Chicago. His biography on the West Point website lists Rapone as one of several cadets advised.

What? The education system in this country is corrupt. Both U of Chicago and West Point are off the rails.
The full article is worth reading.
How has he made it this far in West Point as an avowed Communist? If he’d been an avowed Nazi, it seems to me he’d have been thrown out long ago.
TIE THEM BOTH TO A CANNON A FIRE IT!
There were VERY good reasons for the founders requiring someone who is born here of citizen parents, a natural born citizen, naturally a US citizen because they could not be anything else, as President.
Barry Soetoro/Barack Hussein Obama told us he was born a British subject.
“Second Lieutenant Rapone’s actions in no way reflect the values of the U.S. Military Academy or the U.S. Army.
Tens, scores, maybe hundreds of other cadets, teachers, profs, and administrators HAD to know about this communist in their midst, yet nobody lifted a finger to stop him. I’d say that alone reflects on the values of USMA and the Army.
The Army and USMA are using the NFL defense. You’d think they would be wise enough to see how well it’s worked for the NFL!
If he really is a commie, why on earth would he want to be an Army officer?
The West Point Honor Code died when open homosexuals were admitted to the Academy.
He might have a long line to wait for his happy dance.
How has he made it this far
Good Lord, it must be Stupid Day...
The behavior of 2nd Lieutenant Rapone is symbolic of a larger problem in our society the epidemic of incivility in our public discourse” — Former Pennsylvania Rep. Jason Altmire
So the worst we have here is “incivility in public discourse.” Let’s overlook the fact he is a sworn enemy of the United States and, in a normal world, would be shot at dawn.
The former congressman is a blithering idiot.
The election of Trump was not a panacea. For eight determined years the Obama commissars permeated and took control of the military including the service academies, CIA, NSA, State, Justice Defense and all Federal agencies. It will take a long equally determined effort to get them out.
I'm not sure they do that. I remember Timothy Leary's biography (yes, that Timothy Leary). He was a West Point cadet who got caught buying whiskey during prohibition. They didn't kick him out. They just ostracized him until he resigned. He held out for two years though.
Finally, some common ground.
Only because Communists HATE Socialists.
We have a mole.
A bullet, carefully placed, will solve the problem.
Thank Obama Hussein for the fundamental transformation of the military.
So right. The Gramscian Long March Through the Institutions is much more than a political slogan. It's the Deep State political reality we face that's slowly destroying our country from within. Much more than the military is involved.
At least this little troon is getting disowned by his support line, unlike most of the Antifa vermin who have been popping up lately.
