Did You Catch Navy's Swipe At Army's Commie-Loving Graduate?
Townhall.com ^ | december 11, 2017 | Matt Vespa

Over the weekend, West Point and Annapolis met in Philadelphia for the annual Army-Navy game. Army clinched sweet victory when Navy kicker Bennett Moehring missed a 48-year field goal attempt. While Navy lost the football game, they can be given credit for some of the trash talking that occurred in the stands. The Naval Academy cadets made sure to let their Army counterparts know about their recent public relations embarrassment over 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone, who tweeted support for former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, trashed Secretary of Defense James Mattis by calling him an “evil, vile f**k” and said that “communism will win.”

Rapone graduated in 2016, but tweeted photos of himself wearing a Che Guevera shirt underneath his uniform. He also wrote that communism tribute inside of his officer’s cap. He’s currently with the 10th Mountain Division. He’s reportedly a member of Democratic Socialists of America. I’m pretty sure you cannot be political while in uniform, but that’s a story for another time.

For something a bit more patriotic, please read Guy’s post about the Army-Navy glee clubs’ rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner. For all you liberals, this is why so many Americans are sour at the NFL for their national anthem antics.

UPDATE: Army had some good posters of their own

When does this rapone freak get kicked out of the Army?

BTW, West Point has the best uniforms.

Is that Commie also a drug addict? His eyes look horrible - maybe it’s just the evil coming through.

Impressive yes. They’re pretty even over 118 years. Still, you’d think the ground pounders would fare better than the squids. Then again, the world is 7 tenths water. So maybe it was meant to be. 😎 Dad wore a navy uniform for a bit back in the 40's. But the war ended before he went anywhere, and they cut him loose.

Yes, but the Army didn’t instill it’s morals into John McCain, teach him how to become a reverse ace, or set up the American public to have to deal with his caustic presence for an entire lifetime.

I say this with a certain amount of jest, in that the NAVY was dealing with a family issue that prevented it from treating John like they would have anyone else.

These sorts of things can happen to the best of institutions.

This video is very complimentary to the ethic of the Army / Navy men and their lifetime dedication to the service of our nation.

Contrasts amazingly to the NFL situation right now.

It’s the first high-def version I’ve found, and it’s a must see.

Folks, don’t pass up seeing this once. I think you’ll want to see it more than once.

John McCain, hero? Then, but not now. He should be court martialed for his current behavior. What an A’hole!

Really a great production. Proudly American and from a tv network. Slipped by the 99% of the network staff that detest our country.

Everyone needs to see that pregame production. You will walk taller. The game was terrific, as most of them are.

ARMY NAVY is Americas game. NFL is a cheap whore of what the sport could have been. But it can never even eat the dust of the best contest on the planet ARMY NAVY.

Is communism a form of treason? It isn’t compatible with the U.S. Constitution. Why are we so complacent about allowing treasonous forms of ideology to challenge our God given freedoms?
