Over the weekend, West Point and Annapolis met in Philadelphia for the annual Army-Navy game. Army clinched sweet victory when Navy kicker Bennett Moehring missed a 48-year field goal attempt. While Navy lost the football game, they can be given credit for some of the trash talking that occurred in the stands. The Naval Academy cadets made sure to let their Army counterparts know about their recent public relations embarrassment over 2nd Lt. Spenser Rapone, who tweeted support for former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, trashed Secretary of Defense James Mattis by calling him an “evil, vile f**k” and said that “communism will win.”

Rapone graduated in 2016, but tweeted photos of himself wearing a Che Guevera shirt underneath his uniform. He also wrote that communism tribute inside of his officer’s cap. He’s currently with the 10th Mountain Division. He’s reportedly a member of Democratic Socialists of America. I’m pretty sure you cannot be political while in uniform, but that’s a story for another time.

UPDATE: Army had some good posters of their own:
