Space Force official fired for comments on critical race theory

After granting interviews in which he discussed his book on the spread of critical race theory (CRT) and Marxism and the United States military, Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Lohmeier was shockingly relieved of his Space Force duties, as Breitbart reports, in a move that seems to confirm the very concerns he highlighted.

Lohmeier was reportedly dismissed from his post as commander of 11th Space Warning Squadron by Air Force Lt. Gen. Stephen Whiting after at least two appearances meant to promote the book he authored, titled, Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military. A Space Force spokesperson said Whiting had launched a probe of whether Lohmeier’s remarks “constituted a prohibited partisan political activity.”

During a discussion on the Information Operation podcast last week, Lohmeier outlined the main points of his book and leveled criticism at Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s diversity and inclusion initiatives, as Fox Business noted. As part of that push, back in February Austin ordered a “stand down” in which commanders were charged with investigating and addressing “extremism” in their ranks, a move largely seen as targeting conservative servicemembers.

“What you see happening in the U.S. military at the moment is that if you’re a conservative, then you’re lumped into a group of people who are labeled extremists, if you’re willing to voice your views. And if you’re aligned with the Left, then its OK to be an activist online because no one’s gonna hold you accountable,” the former Space Force official declared, according to the Washington Examiner.

Lohmeier blasted Austin’s directive and similar programmatic changes within the military, saying, “The diversity, inclusion and equity industry and the trainings we are receiving in the military…is rooted in critical race theory, which is rooted in Marxism.”

While Lohmeier emphasizsed that he does not necessarily believe that senior military leaders have “ill motives” in furthering diversity and inclusion initatives, he said that “if we pursue this agenda, it will divide us. It will not unify us,” as Breitbart added.

In an interview with Military.com, Lohmeier stated, “My intent never has been to engage in partisan politics. I have written a book about a particular political ideology in the hope that our Defense Department might return to being politically non-partisan in the future as it has honorably done throughout history.”

Republican reaction to Lohmeier’s dismissal from his post was swift and searing, with Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) opining on Twitter, “Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier is a hero, not only for putting on the uniform every day to defend our nation but also to defend the freedoms of the leftist mob attempting to cancel him. CRT should have no place in our classrooms, Armed Forces, or country as a whole.”

As of early Monday morning, Lohmeier’s book had soared to the top position on Amazon’s bestseller list, so as regrettable as his removal from his Space Force duties assuredly is, it appears that the officer’s prospects remain bright, indeed.

Just because this is more important the people ranting and the BS comments above. We should support this hero and buy his book. Even if you don’t read it just buying it alone will aid him through the times that are undoubtedly approaching him. If you choose to read the book, even better, the only way we can defend our constitutional rights are by maintaining our education throughout our lives to be able to spot communism when it shows itself.

He is a real American patriot and thus was punished for telling the truth. What a shame our mistake has become. My family had several vet, army and air force, they would turn in their Graves today. That new ad for the army is a mentally ill comic.

I Curse the Demonic Spirit that is within the Democratic Party. They are out to still, kill and destroy this Nation. I ray if there is any light or grace in them that they would receive JESUS CHRIST as LORD and SAVIOR of their lives. They have been caught in there Lies and they are thieves that must repay 7 fold back to the people in this Nation. GOD’s Truth, Justice and Righteousness will Prevail in this Nation. AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!

He spoke the “TRUTH” and it cost him his job and possible career. He has 1st Amendment Rights and what he said wasn’t arbitrary to the military and Space Command, the man needs to be reinstated in his job!!!!!!!

This shows the people in this country where the US military is headed. The Marxist have taken over the military. This man should have been praised for speaking out against Marxism but instead he was demoted. Fifty years he would have been praised for being a patriot. What in the Hell is happening to our country? Looks like the communist are taking over. Civil war is about to happen.

Let me get this straight,. If you are Democrats, your opinion counts. But if you are a Republican your opinion doesn’t matter, RIGHT? That is bias in my book. Democrats should be held accountable for their actions. This is still the US right? The citizens voted them in and should vote them out.

The votes to remove those that are leftist seem to magically appear to keep them even when republicans support their removal..

To modify your words a bit… “If you’re an American your opinion, and your rights don’t matter.”

Does anyone still think that Uncle Joe is not a communist?

Too bad we can’t fire all of the CRITICAL RACE THEORY advocates instead of people like Lt Col. Lohmeir. Critical Race Theory is the handiwork of Marxists roaches in our government. Anyone who is using that garbage should be removed from this country. Let the miserable slugs shove the CRT trash down the throats of some less civil people and see what happens to them. I never thought this country could possibly have so many truly ignorant people among us.

The American Military is all but void of Real American Military Leaders. Now the vast majority of so call Leaders are little more than Political Junkies! The Military is our last hope to survive as a Free Nation. Just look who has been appointed to the highest levels of Command! They have but one objective, to rid all the real those who may not follow their orders when the Shot Hits The Fan!

I get paid over $190 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 15k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.

Does Biden want a military that only is composed with liberals? No free speech or freedom of thought.
