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.
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.
God in heaven, Gunfighter Emerson, Bob ‘Diggin’ Higgins and Chargin’ Charlie Beckwith, where are you? The lean green machine is in deep Kimshee if West Point is graduating leaders who are basically either communists or support communism.
Even more shocking, a former instructor of Comrade Rapone’s at the Kremlin on the Hudson stated that because Rapone had been in combat, we should all forgive him for being a communist. In addition, the instructor stated that Rapone had read a lot about communism and that he had a good heart.
He sure has read a lot about communism and his heroes, Che, Uncle Ho and Fidel. So what if he’s a commie, he’s not a bad guy. Ho Chi Minh liked kids…and Hitler liked dogs.
What the hell is going on at West Point and in our military?
It would be one thing if Rapone was a civilian and had no affiliation with the government or the military, but Rapone swore to defend this nation against all enemies; foreign and domestic, which includes world communism.
Second Lieutenant Spenser Rapone should be court martialed for one; conduct unbecoming an officer, two; being a member of a political organization and/or having political ideology which supports the overthrow of the US Government and three; for making disparaging public remarks about the Secretary of Defense and the Commander in Chief, Donald J. Trump.
Apparently, Rapone’s conduct and political affiliation was the first subject of the day at the Sec Army and Chiefs of Staffs morning briefing. No doubt this one will be called Operation Shove under the Rug. Gotta think about all those perks once you get out, right generals; country last, your PX parking space first.
The army can claim they are investigating Rapone to the cows come home.
This ‘old vet’ is betting that the army will do nothing.
Rapone is a sign of the times; a traitor to the nation, who is serving openly in uniform on active duty in full view of his chain of command that knows exactly what’s going on.
He will get away with it all; the Twitter posts, the communism, the sedition, the comments about his chain of command because the military is stocked with moral cowards, social justice warriors, the LGBT mafia, leftists radicals and feminists who think that a commie Benedict Arnold like Rapone is as all-American as baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet.
That’s how far this great nation has fallen and our army and our military with it.
The country is under attack by leftist radicals and communists and our nation is doomed unless Americans take their country back from these enemies of the state; traitors who serve in the Pentagon, in the Swamp and at Fort Drum, where Second Lieutenant Joseph Stalin resides tonight with a smile on his face, the smile of a man who knows his senior leaders are worms.
A massive purge must begin tomorrow, in order to save the military from the leftist social engineers who have infiltrated its ranks and who, like the communists of the past will stop at nothing to reach their goals; the complete obliteration of the US military as a fighting force and its incarnation as nothing more than a corporation with high explosives.
If nothing is done, the consequences are too catastrophic to even contemplate.
During his speech to the cadets at West Point in 1962, General MacArthur stated:
The long gray line has never failed us. Were you to do so, a million ghosts in olive drab, in brown khaki, in blue and gray, would rise from their white crosses, thundering those magic words: Duty, Honor, Country.
I believe it’s time for the ghosts to make an appearance.
