Space Force Commander Removed For Criticizing Spread of Critical Race Theory in U.S. Military

Space Force Commander Removed For Criticizing Spread of Critical Race Theory in U.S. Military

Meanwhile, the Chinese have landed their first rover on Mars.

A little more than one year after President Donald Trump launched the newest branch of the U.S. military, the Space Force is reporting its first casualty.

One of the branch’s new commanders has been lost, not due to any foreign actor, but rather sacrificed on the current administration’s altar of racial justice.

A lieutenant colonel in the Space Force has been removed from his post — after he went on a podcast to claim that Marxism is invading the military, according to a report.

Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier was temporarily reassigned after going on a podcast and touting his book, “Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military,” according to military.com.

“This decision was based on public comments made by Lt. Col. Lohmeier in a recent podcast,” a Space Force spokesman told the outlet.

“Lt Gen. (Stephen) Whiting has initiated a command directed investigation on whether these comments constitute prohibited partisan political activity,” the statement said.

For those of you interested, the link to the Lohmeier’s book is here. It appears that the the author may be laughing all the way to the bank, as his book is temporarily out of stock. You can anticipate that I will be reviewing it as soon as I am able to procure a copy.

Lohmeier appeared on a podcast (link here) to promote his new self-published book when he made the comments that express concern about the division that Critical Race Theory is causing and its origins in anti-capitalist, Marxist dogma.

Lohmeier said: ‘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.

‘Since taking command as a commander about 10 months ago, I saw what I consider fundamentally incompatible and competing narratives of what America was, is and should be.

‘That wasn’t just prolific in social media, or throughout the country during this past year, but it was spreading throughout the United States military. And I had recognized those narratives as being Marxist in nature.’

He described the the New York Times 1619 Project as ‘anti-American’, adding: ‘It teaches intensive teaching that I heard at my base – that at the time the country ratified the United States Constitution, it codified white supremacy as the law of the land.

‘If you want to disagree with that, then you start (being) labeled all manner of things including racist.’

Lohmeier has had a very distinguished career, and had previously received a holiday call from President Trump.

His Air Force career included instructor pilot training on the T-38 Talon jet and time flying the F-15C Eagle, according to biographical information listed on his book cover. He graduated from the Air Force Academy in 2006.

He moved into the Space Force in October 2020. The following month, then-President Donald Trump called Lohmeier and other members of the Space Force for the branch’s first Thanksgiving holiday.

Lohmeier told Wood, the podcast host, that the beginning chapters of his book explore the history and foundation of the United States and how critical race theory — a study of how race and racism impact or are impacted by social and economic power structures and institutions — plays a role.

…In the segment, Lohmeier said his book is not political, and is meant to alert readers to the increasing politicization of today’s armed forces, some of which he said he’d seen or experienced firsthand.

Meanwhile, the Chinese, who are not suffering from the needless application of race-based social justice, have just landed their first rover on Mars.

The Tianwen-1 mission, China’s first interplanetary endeavor, reached the surface of the Red Planet Friday (May 14) at approximately 7:11 p.m. EDT (2311 GMT), though Chinese space officials have not yet confirmed the exact time and location of touchdown. Tianwen-1 (which translates to “Heavenly Questions”) arrived in Mars’ orbit in February after launching to the Red Planet on a Long March 5 rocket in July 2020.

The outrage over this move is growing.

Team Biden will clearly keep the US space program grounded in inane and divisive race-based policies while our competitors are free to capture the high ground in space. If the direction doesn’t change soon, Lohmeier will not be the last Critical Race Theory casualty in our armed forces.

“…the current administration’s altar of racial justice.”

It is a mistake to allow the enemy to decide the battlefield; in this case to define the language.

Call “racial justice” what it is: racialism.

The Communists have taken over, without a shot fired.
From within just as they said it would.

I agree with Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier, but …
back in the mid-’60s, we were specifically told to vote as we wanted, but to keep our political opinions to ourselves.

    I’m a vet from the cold war myself. That you agree his comments, much less his book are ” political ” is remarkable. To be critical of BLM or Marxism within the military… is not political… except that the left has embraced both… as have the Democrats. They’ve made it political.

      I was puzzled by the military suggesting that his views are “partisan,” how is it “partisan” to be critical of Marxism in our military? That’s freaking AMERICAN and a huge part of what our military fought against over the past how many decades? It’s mind-boggling (and heart-breaking).

        What you’re missing is that Progressivism is a religion, dressed up as politics. It’s how you get everything being political – it’s really a worldview, supported by doctrines and creeds. If a religion has become the de facto state religion and you go against that religion, then you’re obviously being partisan.

          “What you’re missing is that …”

          I think what everyone here today is missing is WHY they are doing it, and what are the plans for the new Marxist-indoctrinated military.

          Answer: killing you and I.

      Criticism of neo-Marxism is now considered unacceptable extremist partisan political activity in the America’s new woke military. Say our new military commissars.

      Seems like only yesterday Marxism was the primary enemy our military shielded and protected us from.

    To obtain a security clearance, one of the questions is, have you ever been a member of an organization that espoused the overthrow of the US government., etc. No officer should tolerate this kind of subversive crap. Obama promotions.

    The jokers pushing this stuff need to summarily stripped of their commission and separated from the service.

The essence of CRT is to subjugate western civilization.

Once again, we are living through a communist takeover. They don’t even deny being Marxists anymore. This isn’t about conservatives vs liberals anymore and there is nothing to negotiate since the communists don’t negotiate. It IS happening here, in our own country and WE are the terrorists?!

All this because Yet squishy boneheads are put off by Trump’s “mean tweets”? It’s time to drop all of this post-Trump era BS. Trump is still in game bigly and more than ever, is the ONLY leader who gives us chance to win. The ONLY ONE who we can trust to fight.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to Pasadena Phil. | May 16, 2021 at 7:08 pm

    Trumps tweets were rather funny, and watching marxists go into epileptic like fits even funnier.

    Are you saying you don’t trust McConnell, Romney, GOP Chair Rona Romney, Megan McCain, Boehner, Kevin McCarthy and the like in the fight? BUt they’ve always been so reliable – for stabbing us in the back.

Barnes & Noble is showing that it is in stock. (I never buy from Amazon.)

    Me, either, alohahola! Dumped Amazon and have not looked back. But wherever it’s available, best get it asap because there will almost certainly be a woke mob campaign to pressure outlets to stop carrying it.

Excellent! Now he can hook up with one of the civilian operators, make some money, and do some serious flying.

Out of curiosity shouldn’t we have a response of cutting the military budget?

If it is going to advance Democrat objectives like CRT why should I fund it?

Why should I be funding a politicized military?

If our position on the military budget was flexible instead of an unconditional demand for a higher budget the military just might have to factor in what the conservative half of the country thinks.

As of right now following a catastrophic defeat

50 senators and only 5 congressmen short (or is it 6 I forget).

We have leverage to deal with problems with the military but only if we abandon the orthodoxy that the only adjustment of the military budget possible is for a higher budget.

The neo-Marxists now running the US military will not tolerate criticism of neo-Marxism in the military.

Our military now has political commissars. They don’t call them that, of course.

We have arrived at the point where neo-Marxism in America is considered mainstream and opposition to it is labelled ‘extremism’. The full force and power of the government must be used to suppress this ‘dangerous’ extremism. And the ‘domestic terrorists’ who espouse it.

Survivors of the old Soviet Union who now live in the nation formerly called ‘The Land of the Free’ are very familiar with how this works.

Welcome to the USSA, Comrade!

    Well in fairness the Military doesn’t tolerate dissent very well in any era or almost any subject. The rare exception being those which have a very vocal backing that can effectively use media, the legal system and congressional champions to rally around and organize their defense.

    The military is a hierarchical organization and once the order is given you work to carry it out to the best of your ability. If the order is illegal or immoral or otherwise objectionable you can, as an Officer, resign your commission.

    Dissent is by it’s very nature ‘prejudicial to the maintenance of good order and discipline’. That is a key element in every charge under the UCMJ.

    The LTC is a grown up in military parlance. He understood exactly what he was doing, the effect it would have and the almost certain response of his chain of command. He chose to continue down the path of what he believes in knowing the consequences. That IMO, makes this an act of moral courage.

    His further prospects for promotion are non existent. His future duty assignments will be less than ideal. He could potentially be forcibly retired at the next lowest grade. He will not be retained in service. Again, he knew the likelihood of this and forged ahead.

    In the military you truly can not ‘fight city hall’. Retribution is swift and all but certain for those espousing ideas in public that embarrass the chain of command. That’s the way it is, the way it always was and the way it must be.

      Somewhere Billy Mitchell is laughing.

        CommoChief in reply to MattMusson. | May 17, 2021 at 8:56 am

        Mitchell is a great example of what happens when one doesn’t ‘toe the line’. Even though he was proven spectacularly correct he was reduced in rank and dismissed from service.

If this isn’t the last straw, we’re cooked. WHERE IS THE GOP ON THIS??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

ALL of the bastards!

Remember the military in an official public capacity attacking Tucker Carlson and taking part in a political stunt by one congressman against another congressman isn’t partisan at all!

We need to abandon old orthodoxies about the military budget if we are to have any counter-influence on the military to counteract the wokists.

We need to be preparing our warriors to fight and win battles, not how to be SJWs.

They are prepping. Only problem is the enemy is us that they’re preparing to kill.

This would be an impeachable offense if the shoes were switched around.

The Communists are in power.
