Unhinged Left steamrolls Democratic Party.

Democrat leaders in Washington, D.C. warned that Initiative 77, the measure to extend the minimum wage to tipped workers in the nation's capital, would actually hurt waiters, waitresses, bartenders, and busboys. Their opposition was not enough to stop the Bernie Sanders tide, however...

To no one's surprise, Commie Cadet Spenser Rapone flipped Uncle Sam the bird on his way out the door because revolutionary! or something:


Top brass at Fort Drum accepted Rapone’s resignation Monday after an earlier reprimand for “conduct unbecoming of an officer.” Rapone said an investigation found he went online to advocate for a socialist revolution and disparage high-ranking officers…

“I consider myself a revolutionary socialist,” the 26-year-old Rapone told The Associated Press. “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.”…

Greg Rinckey, an attorney specializing in military law, said it’s rare for an officer out of West Point to receive an other-than-honorable discharge. He added that it’s possible the military academy could seek repayment of the cost of Rapone’s education because he didn’t serve the full five-year service obligation required upon graduation.

“I knew there could be repercussions,” said Rapone, who is scheduled to speak at a socialism conference in Chicago next month. “Of course my military career is dead in the water. On the other hand, many people reached out and showed me support. There are a lot of veterans both active duty and not that feel like I do.”

Spoken like a well-indoctrinated Marxist. Humility, gratitude, and self-awareness ain't his thing. No doubt this kid will figure out a way to feed off the teat of the government he so despises. Buh bye.
