Senator Wants West Point Grad Booted


Florida Sen. Marco Rubio wants officials at West Point to revoke the commission of an officer who tweeted photos of himself with pro-communist messages while in uniform.

Rubio wrote to acting Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy this week, calling the images an “extreme embarrassment” for the U.S. military, according to the Military Times.

“It is extremely concerning that someone who so often expressed such hostile views towards the United States’ system of government was able to obtain a commission,” he wrote. “(His) revolutionary ideas were harbored long before he was commissioned as an Army second lieutenant. Were West Point administrators or faculty aware of his views and behavior?”

In one photo, 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone is seen wearing a Che Guevara shirt under his uniform. In another photo, he reveals that the words “communism will win” are written under his hat. The photos were taken at his graduation in May 2016.

Funny, I would have thought him long gone, by now.

(As well as the American and World History professors who either taught or accepted such drivel.)

Sorry, civil libertarians, the military has different standards than the an average citizen.  This is not a football team.

Do we want such graduates leading our men and women into battle?  For once, I agree with the Senator.

  1. A few decades ago, such a person would have been immediately court-martialed and removed from the military. Why he’s still around is more an indicator of the rot within… But since ex-Pres. Obama (how I love saying that!) fired most of the traditionalist generals and upper echelons, there’s no one left by the political weenies who lean whichever way the wind is blowing. A pox on all their houses!

  2. What Rev. Paul said.
    Apparently you and Sen. Rubio, are completely unaware of the damning indictment of a recently retired Army Lt. Colonel, USMA grad (’97), and two-tour West Point instructor(2006-20009 and 2013-2017), noting that Rapone is but the tip of the iceberg of the problem with West Point.
    Here’s a link to the letter in full:
