From the Daily Caller
The former Democratic congressman who nominated communist 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone to West Point is now disavowing Rapone’s recent comments, which range from attacks on Secretary of Defense James Mattis to calls for political violence.
Former Democratic Rep. Jason Altmire of Pennsylvania told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Rapone’s long history of extremist tweets, which include calling Mattis an “evil, vile fuck,” is shocking, disappointing and abhorrent.
“Several years ago, I met Spenser Rapone when he was a high school student seeking an appointment to West Point,” Altmire said. “At the time, he was an outstanding, well-rounded student who came from a good family. I have not been in touch with him in the years since the appointment, and I was shocked and extremely disappointed in the recent reports of his indefensible actions.”
“The behavior of 2nd Lieutenant Rapone is symbolic of a larger problem in our society — the epidemic of incivility in our public discourse,” Altmire continued. “While I strongly support the rights of American citizens to express their opinions, the actions of 2nd Lieutenant Rapone are abhorrent and appear to be in clear violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, in addition to being inconsistent with the values of the United States Military Academy. I have not doubt that the U.S. Army will take appropriate action.”
……Such statements run the risk of violating Article 88 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. According to Article 88, “Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Transportation, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”
The maximum punishment under Article 88 is dismissal from the military, forfeiture of all pay and allowances and prison for a year.
The social media history of this rabid proletarian Marxist reads like a poster child for Bolshevik Russia.
The little fuckstick supports a political ideology that is diametrically opposed to our Republic. We are sworn to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies; foreign and domestic. He’s a domestic enemy. His objective is to use his position in the military to subvert democracy. He’s an abject disgrace to the uniform. His communist ‘revolutionary’ dogma violates the oath he took.
Kick his ass OUT.
He’s not real keen on loyalty to the military, either.
The military hierarchy seems to have no trouble with radical muslim thugs in the ranks, kowtowing to the violent ideology of Islam, or high-ranking officers who send emails to subordinates calling Christians “racist and terrorist”.
It remains to be seen if they do anything about this communist miscreant.
