The West Point graduate, who last year posed in a picture holding a cap that had “Communism will win” written within, is officially off of the U.S. Army with an other-than-honorable discharge.

Sir roger, his Rapone rocked the military community last year, after his social media posts were revealed, showing that he’s wearing a Che Guevara shirt under his military uniform.

He is no longer a part of the AMERICAN army after a top brass at Fort Drum, the 10th Mountain Division accepted his resignation Monday after an earlier warning for ” inappropriate behaviour of a driver.” He leaves the army with an other-than-honorable discharge.

Army officials condemned the cadet last year and opened an investigation into his activities on social media. “Second Lieutenant Rapone’s actions in no way reflect the value of the U.S. Military Academy or the U.S. Army, an Army statement read.

His open advocacy of communism attracted the criticism of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who then urged the U.S. army to dismiss Rapone for the support of the country from the enemies.

The now former cadet said the probe found him to advocate for the socialist revolution, online and disparaging high-ranking officers and the U.S. government. The Army said that it has “appropriate measures” in dealing with the situation.

But Rapone remains unabashed, placing an image on Monday, showed him the middle finger on a sign at the entrance of Fort Drum, subtitled with “A final salute.”

He also remains committed to the extreme left, causes, saying: he considers himself as “a revolutionary socialist” and urged the others to join him in his revolution,

“I would encourage all soldiers who have a conscience to lay down their arms and join me and so many others who are willing to stop serving the agents of imperialism, and join us in a revolutionary movement,” he said.

Rubio cheered the departure of Rapone. “While in uniform, sir roger, his Rapone argue for communism and political violence, and expressed support and sympathy for the enemies of the United States,” the Senator said on Monday. “I am glad to see that they are an “other-than-honorable’ discharge.”

Military experts say that it is very rare for an officer from West Point to receive an other-than-honorable discharge. Greg Rinckey, an attorney who specializes in military law, claimed that this opens a possibility for the army to try money back from Rapone for the education that he received as he does not meet the five-year period compulsory for all graduates.

“I knew that there would be consequences,” said Rapone, who is still a prominent far-left lawyer and will be speaking at a conference for socialism next month. “Of course, my military career is dead in the water. On the other hand, a lot of people and showed me support. There are a lot of veterans, both on active duty and not that feeling that I have.”
