"About to Be Shat Upon, From A Great Height..."

Go, Army. Rangers lead the way...

Item 1) Rapone's father has expressed sadness and disappointment at his disloyal fuck son's disgusting behavior. So there'll be no Bergdahl Mommy and Daddy Team pushing for leniency in the matter.

Item 2) The Dem. congressweasel who appointed Disloyal Fuck to West Point issued a statement of unmitigated and unequivocal condemnation:
The former Democratic congressman who nominated communist 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone to West Point is now disavowing Rapone’s recent comments, which range from attacks on Secretary of Defense James Mattis to calls for political violence.
Former Democratic Rep. Jason Altmire of Pennsylvania told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Rapone’s long history of extremist tweets, which include calling Mattis an “evil, vile f****,” is shocking, disappointing and abhorrent.
“Several years ago, I met Spenser Rapone when he was a high school student seeking an appointment to West Point,” Altmire said. “At the time, he was an outstanding, well-rounded student who came from a good family. I have not been in touch with him in the years since the appointment, and I was shocked and extremely disappointed in the recent reports of his indefensible actions.”
“The behavior of 2nd Lieutenant Rapone is symbolic of a larger problem in our society — the epidemic of incivility in our public discourse,” Altmire continued. “While I strongly support the rights of American citizens to express their opinions, the actions of 2nd Lieutenant Rapone are abhorrent and appear to be in clear violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, in addition to being inconsistent with the values of the United States Military Academy. I have no doubt that the U.S. Army will take appropriate action.”
Item 3) Everything I told you yesterday is confirmed, and far worse on further investigation:
 Communist West Point graduate 2nd. Lt. Spenser Rapone called Secretary of Defense James Mattis the most “evil, vile f***” in the entire Trump administration.
After reports emerged tying Rapone to the Twitter account @punkproletarian on Monday, West Point issued a statement distancing itself from Rapone’s tweets, which included calling for political violence against the right, referring to Trump as a fascist, and openly promoting communism while in uniform. West Point also noted that Rapone’s chain of command had opened an investigation.
But one of the tweets which has so far escaped attention is Rapone denigrating Mattis in the most vulgar of terms.
In a tweet dated June 8, 2017, Rapone tweeted at a podcaster, stating: “Was so pumped for you to go in on Mattis on the latest ep. Definitely the most vile, evil fuck in the current administration.”

Not only that, but Rapone also attacked Vice President Mike Pence in a tweet from August: “Holy s*** what world do these people live in? “Mediocre and conservative?” Pence is a fucking medieval, cold-blooded killer.”

So he tagged POTUS, VP, and SecDef, the top three guys in every military member's chain of command, as they learn in about five minutes in boot camp.

All of the above noted his chain of command has initiated an investigation. I expect he'll be relieved, arrested, and confined within 48 hours, if not by close-of-business today.

So, if you're keeping score at home, that's three separate specifications of contemptuous statements (Art. 88), three for politicking in uniform contrary to regulations (Art. 92), one of conspiring with other service members to politic while in uniform (Art. 81), seven counts of conduct unbecoming (Art. 133), and seven more of acts contrary to good order and discipline (Art. 134). And they can still hang a specification of mutiny on him, which would be the cherry on the cake, and well within legal bounds (Art. 94).

The Army's not going to court-martial him, they're going to crucify him.

He's going to be demoted to E-1, confined at hard labor until his five-year service obligation expires, forfeit all pay and allowances, and in all probability be stripped of his diploma, degree, class ring, and ideally hung with a dishonorable discharge, and a happily non-expugnable federal felony rap sheet for life.

Which, considering he deserves to be flogged around the Army, then strung up, drawn and quartered, is actually quite an exercise in mercy.

When you're innocent, you want military justice.
When you're guilty, you want civilian justice.
When you're guilty in the military, you're so far from screwed you can't see it from where you are.
Put him in a tumbrel cart, and let the games begin.

Seems to me I remember an Israeli teaching at WP during Obamas tenure. He was teaching that "conservatives" are the real enemy. Perhaps there is a connection there?

They should put him away so deep his mother has to send him boxes of sunshine.

Or make him run the gamut of the rest of his graduating class, his teachers, all recipients of medals for valor of Bronze Star and above since World War II (or next of kin, so I can get my licks in), and all Purple Heart recipients for same (ditto next of kin). Then take his sorry ass out and hang him, shooting is too good for him.

Just a point of order: officers (he is a 2LT now) are dismissed not DD'd. If sent to the big house here in Leavenworth (its a new facility, not the old castle of yore), every day will be bad time and thus not count as service. Bottom line: he will owe for all 4 years and not be eligible for any vet benefits he may have accrued during his enlisted years (note the CIB he was wearing on his uniform as well as what looks like a GCM and a couple campaign medals).

"Dismissed" my ass.
He's a boot butterbar, and former enlisted man.
Showing him the door is what he wants, or will shortly.

He incurred a time obligation for the academy.
He can get busted to E-1, serve his time at hard labor, and then get the DD.
Especially if his appointment came while he was still serving as an enlisted man.
As well as pay back the cost of a $100K engineering education.

At the federal prison wage, between 23 cents and $1.10/hr, that should only take him 31 to 148 years, if he works 8 hrs/day, 7 days/wk, 365 days/yr.

Put his crybabying on pay-per-view, and his room and board would be paid for.

Pipe a live feed to every boot camp platoon, and he'll be the last guy the military has to make an example of for a generation.

Next, I want every cadet and officer who failed to report his social media escapades up on Article 92 charges next week.

Call it Operation Shithook.

I'm just praying that what you (Aesop) describe WILL happen. His Court Martial should include at least one enlisted member. Once this guy is convicted (presuming) then off to Leavenworth to work off the cost of his "education" (which apparently was deficient in many respects).
It's been reported he's "in the field" - I suspect there could be some kind of "field expedient" form of military justice administered. I'd be pretty cool with that, though we would miss out on the pay-per-view

Sir - I should have been more clear. A dismissal is the form that a dishonorable discharge for an officer takes. Once they lock him up, he would be a "2LT" with ALL of his pay and allowances forfeited. At this time, prison workers at Leavenworth get no pay (it is considered a privilege to be allowed to work). The rank thing is only to keep him on the rolls for military control purposes (we have a couple of LTC's and COL's in right now, but they have to snap-to to the lowest PFC guard there). My personal preference would be to sell him as a butt boy to some Afghani warlord (after dropping a hint that this bozo killed a couple of his clan-brothers). More "bang" for the buck so-to-speak.

Aesop said...

Understood. Thanks for the clarification and elucidation. I appreciate it.
Whatever form his sentence takes, I want it to be long-lasting, to drive the lesson home for him as well as pour encourager les autres, and not something over too quickly.

There is a communist cell at West Point. If you google Spenser Rapone 4Chan you will find some good intel. He had at least two classmates who share his ideology. Also, the current Superintendent of West Point is apparently a Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer.

Although I hope you are correct in your assumption that Big Army will prosecute this shitstain to the fullest extent of military law, I fear you are wrong. Little will come of this revelation. 2LT Shitstain will be none the worse for wear.

I hope I am wrong and you are correct.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to send him off to the Sandbox where he could collect a few holes in his back and head off to the long dirt nap?

Aesop said...

If they wanted cheap, they'd just take him behind the barracks and strangle him.
This is going to be a public crucifixion, pour encourager les autres.

He was kicked out of the regiment for:RFSed or Released for standards, he was also dropped from pre-school err I mean Ranger school. Ive been told he got kicked out of regiment because he was a dumb ass and he was dropped fro RS because of his communist ties coming to light.

While there are a few comments on what should happen to 2LT Rapone, this is what the Army hopes islikely to happen-

1) His field grades will give him a 7/7 Art 15, suspended one month.
2) The Army will claim 2LT Rapone has been disciplined
3) the news of his "disciplining" will satisfy the PTB, and no more will be made of this officially
4) he will be quietly promoted, and will be protected into an Army carrer.
5) he will be expected to "mentor" his fellow Communists into positions of rank and authority in he Army
6) he will either retire quietly as a flag grade officer, or be part of the Communist Coup putting the U.S. under a neoBolshevik regime.

What will more likely really happen-
Steps 1-3 go through as stated.
4) His men find out about his political bent (probably sooner than later- Commies can't STFU).
5) His men will find a way to take appropriate action. Army career over.

As a former enlisted, 2LT Rapone should know this, but after all that college, he's still dumb as shit.
