A commanding officer in the Space Force has been fired for condemning Marxism and Critical Race Theory.
According to Town Hall:
Lt Col. Matthew Lohmeier, commander of 11th Space Warning Squadron at Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado, was relieved from his duties because of a loss of confidence in his ability to lead, as Oriana Pawlyk with Military.com reported on Saturday. By Sunday afternoon, “Space Force” was trending on Twitter, as was “Marxism.”
The reason for Lohmeier’s ousting “was based on public comments made by Lt. Col. Lohmeier in a recent podcast,” a Space Force spokesperson said in an email to Military.com. The email also referenced Lt. Gen Stephen Whiting, the head of Space Operations Command, who relieved Lohmeier of his duties. “Lt. Gen. Whiting has initiated a Command Directed Investigation on whether these comments constituted prohibited partisan political activity.”
Lohmeier had self-published a book, “Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest and the Unmaking of the American Military,” which the military was aware of…
Lohmeier also referred to the 1619 Project as “anti-American.”
