Space Force Commanding Officer Fired for Condemning Marxism

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.”

That 3-star General should check his name: it should be Whining rather than Whiting! Lohmeier did right by denigrating the ideas of Marxism and Critical Race Theory. Neither have any rhyme, reason, or place within the US, especially within the military. If anyone should be stripped of his duties, it is Whining himself!

Lt. Col. Lohmeier was fired for defending the Constitution against ALL enemies BOTH foreign AND domestic. He wasn’t the first and he won’t be the last. A number of flag officers were fired by the Obama regime for standing up for our people and out country.Sadly, that’s the state of a once great nation.

Was P. Biden the one to release him, not Pres. Trump?

I spent 23 years in the Air Force fighting communism over Vietnam and in South Korea after the North captured the navy ship. I took the Air War College by correspondence and wrote a thesis on defeating the USSR. That was in the early 70’s and recieved an an outstanding evaluation. In todays AF, I would be cashiered. God Help Us!

Not only that, but they should go to prison and have their pensions revoked; they should also receive dishonorable discharges!

Maybe you should read the CODE OF CONDUCT, that every Military person is demanded to follow, and one of those things is that you as a military member are not allowed your opinion, on or in any political matters, your uniform is not allowed to be connected in any way in political matters

With the election theft supported by the Milirtary we are well past the point of silence in the ranks in the face of managerial treachery.

I think Lt. General Whiting should have been the one relieved of his duty. An officer in our military should not defend Marxism and if he does he should not hold any rank what so ever. What the hell is wrong with our Country today. I bet, Whiting political leanings are toward socialist Democrats.

Pure evil bullshit! This bullshit even happening in our country. This does call for revolutionary tactics or counterrevolutionary tactics against all these marxists and leftists. We are patriots and you aren’t. Period. Another Civil War is coming. Due to people like this 3 star General Clown.

It appears our military leaders are following in Obama’s footsteps by bending over and kissing the arse of our socialist leaders in Washington. They are our supposed leaders of our military and they cannot think right from wrong. They are NOT LEADERS, they are wusses that follow their bosses wherever they are led. GOD help us that are believers in a free America. Free from the useful idiots that believe in socialism, something that does not work because it is not self-sustaining. It does not work, never has worked, and no variation of can ever work.

So you are in the opinion that the military persons should be allowed to make their own decisions on matters before them.
I do wonder how that would work out on the field of battle,. and you see people being killed all around you.
Military has a CODE OF CONDUCT, which prohibits them from being involved in any political matters what so ever, military must have persons who follow orders, not think for them selves.

If you have ever served as I did, you give up some rights that every day citizens have, and one of them is to be involved in any politics openly. You can go to any rally but nothing to identify you as a military member is allowed, and you are not allowed to comment at those rallies, of connect your self openly in those politics on either side.
The fact being how can you be a good military person if you have active actions in political affairs. Ever so often we have a change in the Commander in Chief of the military and if you are political how can you function if you do not support that Commander in Chief is not have your support.
This person disobeyed his actual CODE OF CONDUCT, and should be punished accordingly, even if that means removal from the Military.
The Military like any other department of the Government should never be political in any way.

These are NOT – repeat, NOT – normal times where things can be settled fairly and legal channels relied on with ANY degree of success: the MARXISTS and other Humanists have (at least for the time being) succeeded in pushing a coup d’état down the throats of the entire American electorate.

It more and more looks like only a CIVIL WAR can undo the ultra-FRAUDULENT “election” of last year – and when such a war erupts, ALL restraints fly out the window…

The officer Lohmeier was in the right. Marxism is the long-established enemy of our republic. Marxism has now become an insidious enemy from inside that will corrode and destroy our system from the inside out. If it succeeds, we will be little different from Venezuela, Cuba or the former Soviet Union. Equality is always the spiel, the carrot. But under communism the carrot fades and the stick takes over. Party members are more equal than others. All the rest are equally enslaved and miserable. The technocratic elite will own and dominate us.

I saw a comparison between the C.C.P. and the Russian’s and America of their advertising and recruiting of their personal. It is so totally pathetic what message the American commercial was compared to the Communists. They were signaling for tough, Strong fighting men while the Americans were selling pansy’s for bisexuals so as not to hurt their little feelings. America has a wimped message of flowers in the spring time .

Obama got rid of over thousand military careerist that stood in the way of the likes of General Whitting. Demonstrated merit is the greatest obstacle to leftist butt kissers. With Obama’s purge Whittings career as a Marxist was assured – but now who will work for such a man…the minority woke transgenders?
The Marxist traitors forget that Xi and Putin have notning but contempt for anyone who could be pursuaded to betray their own nation. They will use them but they will shoot them. If theri own nations could not trust them…how could anyone else
