Socialists in the U.S. Military?

Katz:"The death, despair, and poverty is not a bug in Socialism - it's a feature."

According to an article in The Daily Caller, American taxpayers spent just shy of a quarter of a million dollars paying for radical Marxist Spenser Rapone to receive a world-class education and officer training at the United States Military Academy.

From the Daily Caller:

"Rapone is the Army officer and former West Point cadet who appears to have posted photos of himself in uniform at West Point promoting pro-communism messages. In one posted photo, Rapone appears to have placed a paper sign in his formal uniform hat saying: 'Communism will win.' In another photo, Rapone is wearing a Che Guevara T-shirt underneath his uniform."

WIBC host Tony Katz questioned how a radical Marxist with such extremist views could possibly be allowed to serve in the U.S. military.


There is my own disgust of this, my disgust of socialists and communists and my level of understanding of the evil that they bring, that they are dangerous and they crop up and pop up again and again. - This great lie of this communism and socialism of this nonsensical utopia that they claim to dream of is a lie. 

...And every time communism fails, in every way that it fails, they tell us the same story: 'Those people? Oh they did it wrong; we'll do it right.'

...and the lie continues. The death, the despair, the starvation, the poverty [is] not a bug, it's a feature. That's what socialism brings, that's what communism brings.
