Muslim Professor at West Point Mentored Communist Grad

The first question we should be asking is why is there a Muslim professor at West Point.

The West Point mentor of a soldier now under investigation by the Army for engaging in political activity while in uniform is on administrative leave, Breitbart News has learned.

The adviser is Rasheed Hosein, a professor of Middle East history, who was in charge of Second Lieutenant Spenser Rapone’s development at West Point.

A West Point spokesman confirmed he is on administrative leave but said it is unrelated to Rapone.

“We are unable to provide information regarding administrative actions but can confirm that the details are unrelated to 2nd Lieutenant Rapone,” the spokesman said.

At West Point, Hosein had mentored Rapone. The two apparently traveled together to India together in 2014 and maintained a close relationship until Rapone graduated in May 2016.

Also during that time, Rapone’s Facebook posts grew increasingly radical and leftist.

Rapone’s activities caught the attention of command authorities this week after he posted photos of himself in his West Point uniform while promoting communism on social media.

On Sunday, Rapone posted a picture of himself in his West Point uniform holding a sign that said, “Communism will win” tucked under his cover, or hat, raising a clenched left fist.

He tweeted the photo along with the words #VeteransForKaepernick — a reference to football player Colin Kaepernick, the first player to kneel during the national anthem at a football game to protest racism.

On Monday, Rapone tweeted another picture of himself in his West Point uniform, exposing a Che Guevara T-shirt underneath with the caption “In case there was any lingering doubt, hasta la victoria siempre.”

It is against Army regulations to wear the uniform “in connection with the furtherance of any political or commercial interests” or when participating in “public demonstrations” unless authorized to do so.

After the photo garnered widespread attention on Twitter, West Point quickly issued a statement distancing itself from Rapone.

“The U.S. Military Academy strives to develop leaders who internalize the academy’s motto of Duty, Honor, Country, and who live the Army values. Second Lieutenant Rapone’s actions in no way reflect the values of the U.S. Military Academy or the U.S. Army,” it said.

“As figures of public trust, members of the military must exhibit exemplary conduct, and are prohibited from engaging in certain expressions of political speech in uniform,” it said.

“The appropriate Command authorities are reviewing the situation,” an Army spokesman told Breitbart News.

The Army confirmed that Rapone graduated from West Point in 2016 and is now serving as a second lieutenant with the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, based in Fort Drum, New York.

The unit issued its own statement that focused on uniform regulations.

“Both the Department of Defense and the Army have longstanding policies encouraging soldiers to participate in the democratic process. However, the Army has strict rules regarding the wear and appearance of Army uniforms.”

Rapone’s activism while in uniform appears to be much broader than those two photos.

On August 7, Rapone posted a photo on his Instagram account of himself in his Army uniform wearing a Democratic Socialists of America Membership nametag that says, “official socialist organizer.”

Rapone’s Instagram account was taken down Tuesday evening.

Rapone has also tweeted a number of provocative statements, including calling Defense Secretary Jim Mattis “the most vile, evil f*ck in the current administration” on June 7 from Columbus, Georgia.

A spokeswoman for the 10th Mountain Division confirmed to Breitbart News that Rapone had started Ranger School at Fort Benning, Georgia — near Columbus — in February 2017 but did not complete the course.

On February 11, he posted an article titled “Know Your (Gun) Rights! A Primer for Radicals — IT’S GOING DOWN.” He also reposted a meme from a group called Anarchist People of Color criticizing “white privilege.”

Rapone posted on several forums in support of Chelsea Manning, the Army soldier who went to jail for leaking classified intelligence to WikiLeaks. He posted January 18 on Facebook, “May we all learn from her example of what integrity and strength of conviction truly entails.”

Sometime last year, he posted a picture on Instagram of an Antifa flag in his room next to a print of Che Guevara. “New room decor … until it’s flying proudly in the streets. #AntiFa,” he wrote, according to a picture obtained before he took down his account.

Rapone has also posted on Facebook a picture of himself holding up the Communist Manifesto, with his Army dress uniform hanging in the closet in the background and a number of posts showing opposition for Trump policies and administration officials and support for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at least since 2015.

According to photos on Rapone’s Facebook page, he became close to Hosein, a Ph.D. in Islamic history from the University of Chicago. The two appear to have traveled together to the Taj Mahal in March 2014, according to pictures posted on his Facebook page.

On March 18, 2014, Hosein posted on his Facebook page, “Back from the Taj [Mahal] and it delivered.”

Two days later, on March 20, 2104, Hosein posted a picture of himself, wearing a long tunic, and Rapone, wearing a turban and a long tunic, with the caption: “The brothers are gonna work it out.”

On March 23, 2014, Rapone posted about anti-corporatism and racism. On March 24, 2014, Rapone posted a picture of himself and Hosein in front of the Taj Mahal.

Later that year, on August 19, 2014, Rapone posted a picture that showed them in a classroom with another soldier. “The Intelligentsia,” the caption read. Hosein was tagged in the picture, suggesting they were Facebook friends at the time.

A review of Rapone’s Facebook page shows that over time, since 2014, his posts became increasingly anti-racism, anti-Israel, pro-Muslim, pro-Communist, anti-military, and anti-police.

On January 5, 2015, he posted a article calling for the abolishment of West Point. As a Facebook friend since 2014, Hosein would have been aware of Rapone’s Facebook postings between 2014 and when he graduated in 2016. A search of Rapone’s page shows they are still Facebook friends.

Hosein’s bio on the West Point website lists Rapone as one of two cadets he last advised at West Point.

Hosein began teaching at West Point in July 2011. Previously, he served as the director of Public Education for the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Chicago.

He was also Muslim Lay Chaplain at West Point, Officer in Charge of the Muslim Cadet Association, and Emeritus Facility Adviser of Phi Alpha Theta, a national history honor society of which Rapone was a member, according to a photo.

Hosein brought Phi Alpha Theta members, including Rapone, to Orlando, Florida, for a national conference in February 2016.

Much of the info from the Breitbart “exclusive” story was posted days ago on 4chan where the user who started the post wrote:

Where does this guy [Hosein] come from? How did he come to be teaching at West Point? I bet the answers will be interesting…

This image was also posted that appears to be Hosein and Rapone Ratone.

Post-script: Army discharges West Point grad who promoted communism

…he will be leaving the military with an other-than-honorable discharge.

Rapone also posted a picture on Twitter Monday showing him giving the middle finger to the sign outside Fort Drum, along with the caption, “One final salute.”

  1. Get the Muslims out of our school system and preferably out of our country. Their evilness have even entered our military. Very worrying. How could the military let this 2nd Lieutenant from West Point get away with his actions for years.He has disgraced West Point, which I had considered a very reputable institution. I am quickly losing respect for military leadership..Polygraphs need to be administered to all officers in his circle of friends and all officers in his chain of commands to determine their fitness for military service.

  3. “Muslim Professor at West Point” now does ANYONE have a problem with this phrase??? I sure do and here’s why. I would never in my life sit under the tutelage and correction and then get graded by an evil scum that’s why. And why would I say evil scum? Because the teachings word for word of the satanic koran is evil that’s why. All one has to do is READ the koran and understand just like the Bible of Christians or Torah of Jew or whatever religion you choose is to READ IT. Does evil muzzy belong teaching ANYTHING in one of the highest premier USA MILITARY schools? What insanity is this? The Religion of Peace indeed. Read any quote you want from Top Imam folks around this planet and what do they teach and believe and admonish muzzy all over this planet? Evil and bomb and murder and rape and child sex and die infidel and only sharia is law and on and on and on. So my question as I sit here incredulous; why is an evil scum MUZZY at our preeminent Military College teaching anything at all? Who the hell decided that would be a good idea???

    • While “NO” under no circumstance’s should we allow a Muslim professor into any of Military Academe, but folks we allowed a Muslim, Liar, Fraud and one that told us before he gained office what his intentions were.

      Obama, along with the uneducated and uninformed is why we find ourselves about to lose America.

  4. What’s scary to me is that it took Rapone calling attention to himself for 2 years before his fellow soldiers or CO’s took notice only because it captured national attention.

    **That is the lesson here and nothing else ** Why – because if someone was to truly infiltrate our military they would not out themselves as Rapone did, they would be the silent enemy in the gates.

    Our military better get a handle on this fact – we are at war with the Communists, Socialists, Global Jihad Movement, and Anarchists. If these subversives are good – they will rise through the ranks leaving potential security breaches in their wake as they advance up the ladder of leadership.

    Maj. Nidal Hassan was the poster boy for this type of infiltration advertisement going unnoticed for fear of blowing up ones career track with some politically incorrect write up.

    I can’t stress how serious of a problem this is ‘in country’ training to deploy overseas.

    Thank you

    • Hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but their already thru out every facet of our government. During the Obama administration you had a full fledged Muslim, as head of the CIA and that’s just one in thousand’s that imbedded.

  5. Muslims in our government, schools, banking aka sharia compliant, any government office, military pretty much adds up to recruitment to Islam. Remember Hussien in Texas who killed many all because of political correctness, IT HAS TO STOP! Political Correctness has no place in our nation, what our nation has is FREEDOM OF SPEECH, which is being shut down by ignorant elected officials who know nothing about the devious ways of Islam and its drive to conquer nations.

  6. How is it this West Point grad isn’t being court martialled for subversion, and speaking against the U.S.military and supporting an enemy of the state. Put this ungrateful asshole in Leavenworth and get this Muslim teacher away from all military personnel, preferably back to India or Pakistan.

    • He may be promoted, but he won’t be court martialed. There’s probably as many high ranking Muslim officer’s in our upper echelon, as Christian’s.

      And even though civil courts will not enter into the case, we still have a WIMP for a DOJ. Over all they have just about taken over and hardly a shot fired.

  7. What I see with our Millenniums and Snowflakes, where are we going to go to find men that will fight for this country? It sure as hell won’t be any of them, unless someone gives them a bandanna for a facemask and tells them to set fires and break windows. We as a nation, are in deep trouble.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
