Space Force Commander Sounds the Alarm About Critical Race Theory in the Military


Critical race theory, or CRT, refers to what many simply call nothing more than another type of diversity training.

That couldn’t be further from the truth. Critical race theory is being taught to both young people and professionals and it goes far more in-depth than a simple diversity training course.

Fox News explains critical race theory as:

Often compared by critics to actual racism, CRT is a school of thought that generally focuses on how power structures and institutions impact racial minorities. According to Encyclopedia Britannica, the first annual CRT workshop took place in 1989 but its origins go back as far as the mid-20th century with the development of a more general precursor known as critical theory.

Advocates of these ideas view the world through the lens of power relationships and societal structures rather than individuals. The movement itself came in reaction to the perceived failures of classical liberalism in the 19th and 20th centuries. Race, according to this view, is a relatively recent social construct that is weaponized by dominant groups to oppress others.

While the idea of critical race theory may date back as far as the 1980s, it’s safe to say that they couldn’t possibly have envisioned what it would morph into.

Today critical race theory is being used across the country as a weapon to not only pit one demographic group against another, it is actually creating a racial divide the likes of which this country hasn’t seen in decades.

Fox News goes on to say:

Critics, however, say it’s a form of “neo-racism” that’s ripping apart society. That’s why activists like Chris Rufo have pursued a legal strategy of challenging CRT-based trainings through civil rights lawsuits.

“Critical race theory is a grave threat to the American way of life,” Rufo said in announcing a legal coalition in January. “It divides Americans by race and traffics in the pernicious concepts of race essentialism, racial stereotyping, and race-based segregation—all under a false pursuit of ‘social justice.'”

He continued: “Critical race theory training programs have become commonplace in academia, government, and corporate life, where they have sought to advance the ideology through cult-like indoctrination, intimidation, and harassment.”

Critical race theory is clearly a threat not only to our school-age children, but it is also a threat to those working in corporate life, government, and even the military.

Luckily, we have an individual who was brave enough to put his career on the line to be what some may call a whistleblower. Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier has exposed how CRT is being pushed on the men and women who serve in our armed forces.

The Blaze explains:

Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier was the commander of the 11th Space Warning Squadron at Buckley Air Force Base in Colorado. Lohmeier had served in the U.S. Air Force for over 14 years, including being a former F-15C fighter pilot and T-38 Talon jet instructor pilot.

On Friday, Lohmeier was purportedly relieved of his post because he sounded the alarm about Marxism and critical race theory in the military during a podcast appearance where he was promoting his book. Lt. Gen. Stephen Whiting, the head of Space Operations Command, reportedly fired Lohmeier over a loss of confidence in his ability to lead.

“This decision was based on public comments made by Lt. Col. Lohmeier in a recent podcast,” a Space Force spokesperson said. “Lt. Gen. Whiting has initiated a Command Directed Investigation on whether these comments constituted prohibited partisan political activity.”

Last week, Lohmeier appeared on the “Information Operation” podcast to promote his book about the dangers of Marxism in the military.

“The diversity, inclusion and equity industry and the trainings we are receiving in the military … is rooted in critical race theory, which is rooted in Marxism,” Lohmeier said.

Lohmeier noted that there is a diversity initiative that instructs service members to read the book “So You Want to Talk About Race” by Ijeoma Oluo, which labels the United States as a “white supremacist nation.”

Lohmeier claimed that young service members are inundated by a “hyperpoliticized work environment where diversity and inclusion initiatives are being pushed constantly.”

“From his perspective as a commander, Lohmeier said he didn’t seek to criticize any particular senior leader or publicly identify troops within the book,” reported. “Rather, he said, he focused on the policies service members now have to adhere to to align with certain agendas ‘that are now affecting our culture.'”

The idea that our military is becoming nothing more than a hyper-politicized work environment should frighten everyone.  Our military’s single goal is to protect this country from enemies foreign and domestic.

After reading these accounts from Lohmeier, one has to ask themself, is the government more concerned with brainwashing out military men and women than they are training them to be mentally and physically fit to serve.

Of course, refuses to make any reference to CRT in their reporting of the story:

A Space Force lieutenant colonel has been removed from his command after appearing on a conservative podcast criticizing the United States military.

Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier joined The Steve Gruber show to discuss his new book, “Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military,” which alleges that Marxist ideologies are becoming widespread within the armed forces. He expounded on those concerns in the podcast.

“Since taking command as a commander about 10 months ago, I saw what I consider fundamentally incompatible and competing narratives of what America was, is and should be,” Lohmeier said. “That wasn’t just prolific in social media, or throughout the country during this past year, but it was spreading throughout the United States military. And I had recognized those narratives as being Marxist in nature.

“When pressed on what exactly he meant, Lohmeier decried the New York Times 1619 Project, a historical look at how slavery formed America’s institutions, as “anti-American.”

“It teaches intensive teaching that I heard at my base — that at the time the country ratified the United States Constitution, it codified White supremacy as the law of the land,” Lohmeier said. “If you want to disagree with that, then you start (being) labeled all manner of things including racist.”

Lohmeier did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.

The fact that a military commander was relieved of his post for exposing CRT in the military has many up in arms.

It’s time we expose the idea of critical race theory that is being pushed on people of all ages before it’s too late.
