A United States Air Force lieutenant colonel was fired from his command at Space Force after giving interviews about his new book in which he said Marxism and critical race theory (CRT) are spreading in the military.
Air Force Lt. Gen. Stephen Whiting, the head of Space Operations Command, fired Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier from his post as commander of 11th Space Warning Squadron at Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado. Lohmeier participated in at least two interviews to discuss his new book, Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military, according to reports.
Lohmeier, an Air Force Academy graduate, gave an interview on May 7 on the podcast Information Operations with host Air Force veteran L. Todd Wood. During the interview, he said critical race theory is rooted in Marxism and “our diversity, inclusion, and equity industry and the trainings we’re receiving in the military are rooted in critical race theory.”
“The language of the training, which most people don’t understand but I help lay it out in the book, was devised by Marxists,” he said. “It’s intended to be divisive and yet we spread it about the military services pretending it’s going to unify everyone.”
Lohmeier complimented Air Force and Space Force senior leaders, but also said “especially because of the climate at the moment, people that sense that something is off with all of the diversity and inclusion trainings and the language and the coerced speech and all this kind of stuff, they’re unwilling and perhaps because they don’t understand it. They’re unwilling to take a stand against it because they fear perhaps they might be in the wrong.”
“Or they might not get promoted,” he continued. “We spend a lot of time talking about Great Power Competition … but we face our greatest threat here at home.”
Lohmeier also criticized the Air Force’s materials that he was given to conduct a stand-down ordered by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to discuss extremism with his troops. He said the training materials began with a vignette about the January 6 Capitol breach. “That context painted the entire discussion and all the talking points.”
He said all of the examples in the training failed to mention the riots during the summer of 2020. Rather, they only discussed “various odd examples of white nationalists that had been caught at some point in the last decade and had been punished for it and kicked out of the military, or a radical Islamic terrorist.”
Lohmeier said he did not accuse senior leaders of “ill motives.” He said, “if we pursue this agenda, it will divide us. It will not unify us.”
He also said that he does not care what political views his troops have, but he opposes senior leaders politicizing the military. “That’s not what the American people expect, and that’s not our obligation,” he said.
He called the work environment “hyper-politicized,” where “diversity and inclusion initiatives are being pushed constantly.”
He also said at his base that troops were reading a book called, So You Want to Talk About Race? in which there are suggestions about where they should donate money and what politicians they should be donating to, and the U.S. is referred to as a “white supremacist nation” throughout the book.
“It has no place in the military whatsoever,” he said.

Has the libtard mentality now infiltrated our military? It seems, if this post is indeed factual, that those whose job it is, to defend and protect have had a cranial redirectionalization!
Infiltrated our military 20 years ago, I watched it grow throughout my career, and got a HUGE boost during the Obama administration when my troops spent more man hours to conduct: sensitivity training, equal opportunity training, anti-extremism training, etc…(you get the idea) than they did on warfighting skills. I did what I could during my time to fight it, and got passed over for promotion (and then retired) for my efforts. Secretary Mattis and President Trump were a breath of fresh air, but too brief. Now the liberal crybabies are in charge again, and there aren’t enough BRAVE people to push back, too worried about being labelled, and not being promoted and no senior support. I totally respect and agree with Lt.Col. Lohmier’s position, his only crime is speaking out in the Marxist Liberal “progressive” cancel-culture environment. It’s a shame because I served with Matt and he’s a great person, officer and a critical thinker, but he knew what could happen if he spoke out. I’m wondering if he did so to bring light to this situation. Like I said Matt is a smart guy and always had a plan.
LT General Whiting should be fired and LT Col Lohmeier should be reinstated and promoted to Colonel. He is a Patriot and Whiting is a traitor to the United States.
