For decades the US military stood firmly against Marxism.
In fact, throughout the entirety of the Cold War, we stood ready to end the world in a blaze of thermonuclear fire rather than back down to the Marxists in the Soviet Union. MacArthur fought them during the Korean War, the military struggled for years against the Marxists in Vietnam, we invaded Grenada to keep it from going to the Marxists, numerous “dirty wars” were fought around the world to stop the spread of Marxism, and we even funded the Mujahedeen to fight the Marxists in Afghanistan.
With that in mind, it would be fair to think that the military would stand against Marxism. Well, not in Slow Joe’s America! It recently came out that an officer in the Space Force was relieved for opposing Marxism.
Here’s what the Epoch Times reports happened:
“A U.S. Space Force commanding officer was removed from his post after publishing a book that warned of the spread of Marxism and critical race theory in the military.
The Space Force confirmed that it relieved Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier, a former instructor and fighter pilot, as commander of the 11th Space Warning Squadron.”
Here’s what the Space Force said in a statement:
“Lt. Gen. Stephen Whiting, Space Operations Command commander, relieved Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier of command of the 11th Space Warning Squadron, Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado, May 14, due to loss of trust and confidence in his ability to lead.
This decision was based on public comments made by Lt. Col. Lohmeier in a recent podcast. Lt. Gen. Whiting has initiated a Command Directed Investigation (CDI) on whether these comments constituted prohibited partisan political activity.”
Apparently, that decision that he wasn’t fit to lead was based on statements he made in a podcast. In an episode of the podcast “Information Operation,” which Lohmeier was on to promote his new book, Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military, Lohmeier criticized Lloyd Austin, the woke Sec Def, and said this:
“I don’t demonize the man, but I want to make it clear to both him and every service member this agenda—it will divide us. It will not unify us.” He added that “diversity, inclusion, and equity [are] rooted in critical race theory, which is rooted in Marxism.”
According to the Washington Examiner, Lohmeier also said this:
“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 it’s OK to be an activist online because no one’s gonna hold you accountable.”
While the Space Force is focused on kicking out officers that love America, the Chinese and Russians are focusing on cultivating masculinity and patriotism. We’re in deep trouble.
