Marxism’s Goal of Conquest and the Unmaking of the American Military
We have been covering the story of Matthew Lohmeier, the lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Space Force who was removed from his post after he went on a podcast to claim that Critical Race Theory is invading the military. He also expressed concerns about the promotion of Marxism within the American armed forces.
His removal also corresponds to the actions planned by Pentagon activist and Defense Department advisor Bishop Garrison, who looks to scour the military members’ social media accounts for challenges to the leftist programs being implemented . . . and tying them to “extremism” and “racism.”
As promised in my first post about the situation, I ordered the Kindle version of the book that kick-started this story: Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest and the Unmaking of the American Military. It is currently a top-ranking Amazon book, and the hard copy and paperback versions are still out-of-stock.
As this is a book review, I am going to start out by noting my Kindle reader indicated that “Irresistible Revolution” was estimated to be a four-hour read. I finished it in one evening. Indeed, it was a gripping overview of the American system of government, the history of Marxism, and the impact of both Critical Race Theory and and communist ideology as it is seeping into military training and programs.
I did notice a few minor typos that highlighted to me that this was a self-published effort by a talented writer who has a clear passion for the subject. As I did some research on how this came together, it appears “Irresistible Revolution” was vetted by Defense Department lawyers.
In an email to The Post, Lohmeier said that he consulted with a military public affairs officer and legal counsel before publishing the book and that he had a team of attorneys read the manuscript.
“I complied with what I understood was required as part of the pre-publication process,” he said.
The book is a must-read for Americans who love this country and wish to be fully informed on the ways the current administration plans to utilize our armed services. And while the historical reviews are well done (especially the review of pertinent events in China), the heart of the book truly is Lohmeier’s own experiences as he comes face-to-face with America-hating interpretations of our nation’s past and the the new brand of racism that is currently being touted as “anti-racism.”
There were many pages that I highlighted to share with you. However, for me, none were so chilling as Lohmeier’s recounting of a conversation he has with a chaplain who was supposed to serve his squadron. The chaplain wanted to share his “Race in America” classes with the group.
I asked him what was meant by systemic racism.
He replied with an unclear vignette, skirting the issue somewhat, and then after a brief hesitation, replied:
“Basically, whites are racist”.
I told him I did not believe such problems existed in our country – at least as he defined it – or within our service and explained to him why I though such a message not only had no healing power, but that I was concerned it would create division and unhealthy tension between members of my unit where none previously existed.
…I expressed my concern over his views. I explained to him that to impugn guilt to members of my unit solely based on the color of their skin epitomized racism.
Lohmeier then recounts story after story of service members leaving active duty in large part because of these new programs and policies. He also recounts the different and more generous standards applied to those in the military who actively promote American-style Marxism and its twin evil Critical Race Theory.
I give this book 6 out of 5 stars . . . the bonus star is for the bravery to self-publish this work. I suspect this is not the last one from Lohmeier.
I would strongly recommend getting this book as a graduation present for anyone planning to enter the military or to attend one of the service academies.
