The West Point graduate who previously posed with a Che Guevara shirt and a “communism will win” message on his graduation cap parted ways with the Army Monday.

Fort Drum’s 10th Mountain Division allowed Spenser Rapone to resign after previously chastising the West Point grad for “conduct unbecoming of an officer,” reported the New York Post. Rapone posted a parting middle finger to Fort Drum on Twitter.

Rapone reported the Army investigated him after he encouraged socialist revolution and insulted senior U.S. officials and military officers online. The Army said that “appropriate action was taken.”

“I consider myself a revolutionary socialist,” Rapone, who is 26 years old, said to 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.” (RELATED: COSTLY COMMIE: You Won’t Believe How Much West Point’s Radical Marxist Cadet Cost Taxpayers)

Rapone posted the photos for which he became known in September 2017.

He captioned the two photos #VeteransForKaepernick and “in case there was any lingering doubt, hasta la victoria siempre,” a Guevara slogan which translates to “until victory, always.”

Rapone used a taxpayer-funded $226,051 scholarship to attend West Point, where he took humanities and STEM courses. The former cadet has also incited violence against conservatives, called President Donald Trump a fascist and called Secretary of Defense James Mattis an “evil, vile f**k.”
