Space Force Commander Removed From Position Over Criticism of Marxism

Lt Col. Matthew Lohmeier, commander of the 11th Space Warning Squadron, was removed from his position after criticizing both Marxism and critical race theory.

From The Daily Caller:

Lt Col. Matthew Lohmeier, commander of 11th Space Warning Squadron at Buckley Air Force Base, Colo., was relieved from duty over a “loss of trust and confidence in his ability to lead,” a Space Force spokesperson told Military.com.

“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 on whether these comments constituted prohibited partisan political activity,” the spokesperson added.

Lohmeier earlier this month self-published a book titled “Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military,” which is described as “a timely and bold contribution from an active-duty Space Force lieutenant colonel who sees the impact of a neo-Marxist agenda at the ground level within our armed forces.”

He appeared on the podcast “Information Operation” with host L. Todd Wood to promote the book and spoke out against U.S. institutions, including the military, increasingly adopting leftist practices like critical race theory.

Lohmeier pointed out that the diversity and inclusion agenda will divide the military not unite it. Lohmeier also stated that he did not intend to “demonize” Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin in his comments.
