Well, Well, Well, West Point KNEW About Communist Cadet For Years



Well, well, well, it turns out that West Point has known about the “Communist cadet” for years, since 2015, to be exact.
Apparently, the creepy Commie cadet was reported for “communist posts” on his social media pages over two years ago.
So, why on earth was he allowed to stay?

So, I’m sure some of you had questions about Second Lt. Spenser Rapone, who is currently with the 10th Mountain Division, regarding his political antics while in uniform. Rapone tweeted support for Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who fired the first salvo of this taking a knee business during the national anthem, by tweeting a photo of him revealing that he had written “communism will win” inside his officer’s cap with the hashtag, #VeteransforKaepernick. He also showed that he wore a Che Guevara t-shirt under his uniform. His tweets are now protected, but West Point is aware, releasing a statement that Rapone’s chain of command is looking into the matter, and that this in no way reflects the values of West Point or the U.S. Military.
It turns out a senior officer reported Rapone to his chain of command nearly two years ago.
In a social media post that concerned retired Army Lt. Col. Robert Heffington, an Academy history professor at the time, Rapone wrote, “F*ck this country and its false freedom.”
In November 2015, after being removed from his Ranger battalion for violating standards, Rapone was a cadet in his final year at the academy. According to the report obtained by TheDC, after the latest in a series of incidents involving Rapone’s penchant for insubordination, Heffington became aware of Rapone’s radical leftist activity on social media and notified the cadet’s chain of command.
“From his various online rantings and posts, it appears that DCT Rapone is an avowed Marxist, which is completely out of line with the values of this nation and its Army,” Heffington said in a sworn statement. “Moreover, CDT Rapone’s posts indicate that he hates West Point, the U.S. Army, and indeed this country. One post dated 16 November 2015 states, ‘F*ck this country and its false freedom.’ He also … even implicitly justifies the actions of ISIS and blames the United States for terrorist attacks.”
Heffington concluded in his report, “I cannot reconcile the image of a first class cadet at West Point with the things he has posted online for the world to see. To me, these are red flags that cannot be ignored, and I fail to see how this individual can possibly graduate and become a commissioned officer in six months.”
The same day he wrote this report, Heffington contacted then-cadet Rapone’s training, advising, and counseling officer. The officer was disgusted, but not shocked, Heffington said.
“Unfortunately, I’m not surprised,” the officer said, according to Heffington.

In one incident described in the report, the lieutenant colonel confronted Rapone when he heard yelling in a professor’s office. The cadet reportedly answered in a “loud and extremely disrespectful tone,” “Sir, you don’t have the right to use my honor against me!”
