US Army Infantry Officer Supports Kaepernick With ‘Communism Will Win’ Message

A photo of U.S. Army infantry officer and West Point graduate Spenser Rapone was making its rounds online Monday due to the fact that – while in his uniform – Rapone had the words “Communism will win” scrawled inside of his cap.

In the wake of the recent NFL protests, a West Point graduate and infantry officer tweeted out the following image with the caption: “#VeteransForKaepernick” – a disgusting display from an officer.

LawNewz verified the legitimacy of the photograph with Rapone himself. He is currently in the field until Friday and unable to answer detailed questions.

One Twitter user noted that West Point cadets are “under contract with the DoD,” going on to state that Rapone’s actions are a “punishable offense under the UCMJ,” because Rapone is making political statements while in uniform:

Rapone runs a Twitter account called “@punkproletarian” and frequently tweets out his Communist messages:

Rapone also tweeted out a provocative message at right-wing firebrand Mike Cernovich:

Rapone didn’t have the guts to tag Cernovich, though . . .

This young man also writes on a Medium page, (archive) though only one story currently exists and it’s poorly written and horribly flawed in both logic and presentation.

In case you’re as shocked as everyone else and think that this is all a hoax, because who would have thought an infantry officer would disrespect our country like this, Rapone tweeted out a picture of his DSA tag:

The reality is, Rapone’s behavior is morally and legally reprehensible and a disgrace to the uniform:
