Unbelievable that there are Americans working to take away our freedoms.  Why is a guy like this in the military in the first place?

Good. They canned his ass. 

No Honorable Discharge for this West Point grad. 

This will be a wake-up call for the administrators to properly vet these officer candidates.

How embarrassing for West Point.

People have been getting admitted to West Point as political favors since the beginning.

How do you propose to vet for communists?

Have the cadets sign a document that they are not (a) communist.  If cadet refuses to sign, he/she is discharged from the academy [General Discharge].

Communists are indoctrinated from birth to believe that lying in the cause of the Revolution is both required and heroic. They give medals to the best Communist Liars, unless their lies are determined to have acted against the Revolution... Then, a bullet to the head...

Despite that, I have found communists to be careless liars...

Somebody will pry about in their personal lives and make a decision about their political leanings from what they say to their friends and families?

Are there guidelines for that? Who is qualified to figure such things out? Will there be due process involved? Where can they contest their classification as "communist" if they believe it is wrong? Will they be told they have been rejected by West Point because someone said they are a communist?

All who support our strong national government as laid out in our constitution are working to take away our freedoms.  Why single out communists?

Anyone who wants a multi-layered government with sweeping powers that they are allowed to enlarged and restriction they are allowed to ignore are enemies of freedom. 

So called "constitutional libertarians" are freedom's worst enemies.

No, it would have to be obvious that the person is a Communist.  And only check their social media if there's a good reason to suspect them.

"Constitutional Libertarians?"  That doesn't sound like people wanting to take our freedoms away.
