    Spenser Rapone — the Army soldier who became notorious after a picture of him in his West Point uniform holding a “Communism Will Win” sign went viral — was discharged from the Army this month, according to social media postings.
    Rory Fanning, a former Army Ranger and conscientious objector, tweeted on Tuesday that he was sitting down and interviewing Rapone for an event called: “Socialism 2018: A War Resister in the Ranks,” scheduled for July 5.

    At Socialism 2018 I'll be sitting down with with Spenser Rapone, the US Army Ranger, Afghan-war combat vet, recent West Point graduate, and now war-resister, who sparked nation-wide fury after publicly supporting Colin Kaepernick and Socialism during his West Point graduation.

    A description of the event said:

    Spenser Rapone is a former Army Ranger and Infantry Officer recently separated from the military for speaking out against its imperialist violence. He enlisted as an infantryman out of high school in 2010, and deployed to Afghanistan in 2011.

    After returning from his combat tour, he applied and was accepted into the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY in 2012, graduating and receiving his commission in May 2016. Deciding he could no longer stomach the immorality of US imperialism, he spoke out against the reprehensible actions of the military in September 2017

    He ultimately resigned his commission, and was separated from the Army in June 2018 with an Other Than Honorable Discharge.
    He should have been separated from his head !

    Back in the day he would have been taken care of by an age old custom called "Frag_ing" has nothing to do with oil exploration. They missed the perfect opportunity to take care of him while he was overseas in a combat zone.

    This attitude toward the US's "imperialist" immorality didn't come to him in a sudden flash. He is most likely building a resume for any number of left-wing career opportunities. There will be universities trying to sign him. Print, and cable can use him for special forces analytics, etc.
