Some expressed doubt that Lt. Rapone, the America-Hating, Communist Loving fan of racist, homophobic mass murderer Che Guevara was for real. He apparently is. His inspiration was apparently the revered left-wing traitor Chelsea Manning.
In a Reddit post regarding Manning, Rapone spelled out some of his motivations for remaining in the military and exactly what he wanted to accomplish while serving as a second lieutenant in the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division. Those motivations included Manning’s decision to leak national security documents to WikiLeaks.
“I’m currently an infantry officer at Ft. Drum, NY assigned to the same brigade that she was while enlisted,” Rapone wrote in a post. “Every single day I think of the contradictions of being a communist while in this organization, and her courage and tenacity gives me strength to continue the long march through the institutions.”
So the moral of the story is that I guess that even if a story of leftist hatred toward America and our ideals of liberty and freedom seems too outrageous to be true… there’s at least a pretty good chance that it probably is.
