The communist who worked propaganda into social media messages and his own wardrobe while at West Point was underwritten by U. S. taxpayers in a big way. “The scholarship value of a U.S. Military Academy education is $226,051, as of April 2017,” West Point’s public affairs office told The Daily Caller.
“American taxpayers spent nearly 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,” Eric Owens reported in 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.”
