Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier now-former commander of a US Space Force unit has been fired from his position following a podcast appearance in which he guaranteed that the “Marxist ideology” of critical race theory (CRT) were sabotaging the military.
The Lt. Col. offered the provocative remarks while talking on Information Operation, a podcast by “conservative commentator and military veteran L. Todd Wood.”
Lohmeier, who directed the “11th Space Warning Squadron at Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado,” came to talk about his book, Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest and the Unmaking of the American Military. The book investigates the “neo-Marxist plan” that he guarantees has control of the US military. He spoke about the “racial awareness education” that he has gotten in the military and how CRT is “established in Marxism.”
He further asserted that “neo-Marxist ideas” are common inside the Democrat Party, and that Conservatives are progressively being labeled fanatics. Lohmeier has also said that he believes “China was abusing America’s obsession with CRT” in the expectation that it could win a “war with Washington without shooting a shot.” He guaranteed that Beijing was fueling division via the internet, and that Chinese President Xi Jinping would just love to see the United States “decay like this from within.”
The Pentagon told the media that he was removed from his post because of remarks he made during the podcast. The firing of Lohmeier comes in the midst of developing objection over what some see as the military’s abuse of variety and incorporation drives.
Another US Army promoting effort, named “The Calling,” has been scrutinized for using “woke” philosophy to cover up many years of American military intercessions and adventurism.
Lohmeier isn’t the lone military official to raise caution over the supposed Marxist invasion. Recently, an open letter endorsed by in excess of 120 former Generals cautioned that the United States has “taken a decisive left move in the direction of communism and a Marxist type of domineering government.”
