Today’s U.S. Military Makes One Wonder

2017 September 28
by bc3b

Since the dawn of time armies have been about killing people and breaking things. In Russia, China and North Korea, they still are.

The United States Army (and the rest of the US military) have been traveling a different path during the past 50 years. Things like diversity, inclusiveness and other aspects of political correctness have taken precedence over the military’s ability to wage wars and defend the country. Immediately after Nidal Malik Hasan, a Muslim major, went on a shooting spree at Fort Hood, killing 14 and wounding 40, the key statements by General George Casey, Army Chief of Staff, were not about concern for the victims and their families, but that this could negatively impact diversity in the Armed Forces

By now you have likely read about Spenser Rapone, a recent West Point graduate and current a second lieutenant in the Army. Rapone isn’t just a passive avowed communist, but a militant activist who wants a communistic United States.

Before going to West Point Rapone apparently was an enlisted man in the Army and was tossed out of the 75th Ranger Regiment. He made no secret of his communistic beliefs at West Point. Apparently his classmates and several instructors were aware. How did this man get into West Point and why wasn’t he removed once his beliefs became known?

While Spenser Rapone isn’t getting much media coverage outside of the conservative blogisphere, you can be assured that patriotic groups like the American Legion and VFW will be pushing for his removal and possibly a court marshal.

It’s not your father’s army anymore. It’s certainly not your grandfather’s army, nor is it your older brother’s.

Whose army is it in 2017: feminists, communists, radical leftists, moral cowards, and perfumed princes and princesses – that’s whose army it is.

The lean green machine is in dire straits and for all intents and purposes is about ready to flat line without any chances of resuscitation.

Bury the United States Army at Arlington, and engrave on its tombstone, “Killed by cultural Marxists, feminists, feather merchants and moral cowards.”

The latest crisis to engulf the army, and for that matter, the military itself, concerns Second Lieutenant Spenser Rapone, a West Point graduate, a holder of the Combat Infantry Badge, a platoon leader in the 10th Mountain Division, who is apparently an ardent communist and supporter of every Marxist-Leninist maniac to have walked the earth in the last 100 years.

The story of Lieutenant Rapone and his allegiance to the political ideology that gave the world the commissar, bread lines, the Gulag Archipelago, the KGB, the lunatic asylum called North Korea, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, the Stasi, the Berlin Wall, and which butchered 200 million people in the 20th Century has gone viral on the Internet.

Second Lieutenant Spenser Rapone is a graduate of the United States Military Academy, or West Point; you know the institution that gave the nation leaders like Grant, Lee, Pershing, Patton, Eisenhower, Bradley, Gavin, Schwarzkopf, Fred Franks and George Armstrong Custer – Garryowen!

Pictures of Rapone wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt under his West Point dress uniform and a picture of Rapone holding his cap, with the inscription inside, reading, ‘Communism will Win!’ went viral yesterday, when only a small number of conservative news sites were publishing the story.

Rapone put out two visibly pro-communist posts on Twitter this week, including one in which he voiced his support for Argentine communist revolutionary Che Guevara. 

“In case there was any lingering doubt, hasta la victoria siempre,” Rapone tweeted on Monday, along with a picture of him revealing a red shirt adorned with Guevara’s face under his uniform.

Rapone posted another picture on Sunday of him holding up his military hat with the message “communism will win” written inside in a tweet expressing support for NFL freeagent Colin Kaepernick amid President Trump’s attacks on NFL players who take a knee in protest during the national anthem.

Rapone, who goes by the Twitter handle, Commie Bebop @punkproletarian, also identifies as a communist on his Twitter page, with his bio reading, “Troop Left, Commie/space cowboy/straight edge insomniac @DSAVeterans.”

Rapone is also a member of the Democratic Socialists of America.

Gateway Pundit then aggregated a host of photos showing the officer promoting communism with Twitter hashtags like  #CommunismWillWin, #Marxwasright, and #VeteransForKaepernick.

Rapone reportedly called Secretary of Defense James Mattis the most “evil, vile f***” in the Trump administration and wrote a recent OPED about white nationalism and neo-fascism, in which he stated, “while neo-fascism continues to spread in the United States, from the likes of alt-right ghouls such as Richard Spencer to the latest incarnation of white ethno-nationalist militias, fascism has already been here for a long time.”

US Defense Watch has learned that Rapone was tossed out of the 75th Ranger Regiment as an enlisted man, and that he is currently a platoon leader in the famed 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum, New York. Apparently, his communist ideology is no secret and was well known to the cadre at West Point and to his chain of command at both Fort Benning and Fort Drum.

If the army knew about Rapone and his political beliefs which clearly support the overthrow of the United States Government, why in God’s name is this man still in the army?

The Pentagon smoke and mirrors machine steamed ahead at full speed this morning.

The Army was quick to announce it was looking into the messages posted by Rapone, issuing a statement on Tuesday saying, “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,” the statement continued.

Just to show you how far this great nation and its military have fallen, Rapone and his traitorous beliefs were defended by a number of his fellow officers who attended West Point with Rapone , taught him at West Point and served with him.

One of Rapone’s fellow classmates at West Point indicated that the cadre at West Point was more than aware of his enemy political ideology and that Rapone is a great officer and a real intellectual.

What’s the problem America? Come on; get on board the cultural Marxist train. Next stop, Kool Aid Land, aka the Pentagon; final stop, the death of the US Army on a distant battlefield.

Another fellow classmate of Rapone’s from the Long Gray Line said that the people complaining about Rapone were old vets, you know the guys from the army that won the Surge, the 100 Hour War, took Panama and Grenada and never lost a battle in Vietnam, beat the crap out of the commies in Korea and saved the world in the big one; that army, those old vets.

What do we know anyway?

Yet, another supporter of Rapone said that he would never be broken with so many classmates supporting him.

” … he would never be broken with so many classmates supporting him.” Are we talking about the US Military Academy, MIZZOU or Oberlin College?

    I’m sure if he was wearing a tee shirt with a Confederate flag or Make America Great Again on it rather than Che, the people at West Point would have had a problem.

    As big a disappointment as the US Military Academy, which currently has a female commandant, is, the Cadet Corps is equally disappointing. Apparently many had no problem with Rapone’s radical communism because they personally liked him.

    West Point, not ROTC nor OCS, is where our future generals are trained.

    “… is where our future generals are trained.”

    Generals fight logistics, Colonels fight wars, Captains fight bad planning, Lieutenants fight the wax in their ears.

    But yep, we got a problem.

    Meanwhile, 2 NFL teams have announced that they will stand Sunday, Goodell is meeting with anyone and everyone involved with NFL on how to get out of this mess, sponsors are leaving and fans continue to dump the league.

    This isn’t going to take as long as I thought for the NFL to fold their cards to Trump.

    re 1: Par for the course these days, I wish I could say I was surprised by any aspect of this story.

    re 2: haha kind of true.
    re 3: Lol, btw how many states are counting nsa’s own admitted to pen-testing state election infrastructure as ‘hacker’ and likely ‘russians’.

    re 4: Fuck the NFL, but I been saying that forever, part of me hopes they don’t figure it out, and follow espn down the crash and burn road. Seems that’s the pattern of most every org or corp today is to just fold and appease or embrace the insanity, why would now be any different.

    BTW – This is one aspect of Trump though I like, he knows the culture war(s) must be participated in, that today so much of politics is downstream of culture, and if left to typical pubbies, even those who agree, nothing would get said and the left just infests yet another area, largely uncontested.

    re 6: I got a suspicion that Facesuckerburg has a whole shit load to hide if say lawyers from justice started poking around FB, though I’m sure he’s paid enough enough swamp creatures to ensure that doesn’t happen.

    re 12: That should have been done long ago, better late than never, having said that I wouldn’t hold your breath.

    re 23: I doubt it given the city’s financial state.

    Just wondering about McCain and others who hate the president so much they will not vote for anything the house sends them or Trump supports.

    I think after a few votes with Dems I’d strip them of chairmanships of committees. They might join the Dems or be independents. But they don’t do anything for Trump anyway or the GOP voters.

    “The congressman spoke to chief of staff John Kelly two weeks ago about the potential deal with Assange,” The Daily Caller reported. “The Wall Street Journal reported that Kelly told Rohrabacher to bring the information to the intelligence community.”

    And yet the potus either played dumb because he’s not interested in said deal, or really didn’t know about it (with it otherwise being around the news for the last month or so…odd) because Kelly is blocking info flow.

    Really that was the anwser though to the congressman – “bring it to the intel community?”… why would he do that? I mean besides the obvious of them being the enemy here, it’s not the intel community that could even make the deal, they don’t have pardon powers – the president does, and they would never want to see JA to get any sort of pardon.
