The ongoing purge of the military by Joe Biden’s Secretary Of Defense Lloyd Austin continues with the news that the U.S. Space Force has fired a commander over comments critical of the rise of Marxist ideology within the armed forces.
On Friday, Lt Col. Matthew Lohmeier, who commanded the 11th Space Warning Squadron at Buckley AFB near Denver was jettisoned after he appeared on a podcast where he was highly critical of the disturbing direction that the military has taken under the direction of the “woke” Biden regime.
Speaking with host L. Todd Wood on the Information Operation potcast, Lohmeier opined that; “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,” he said.
He has also written a book on the menace of military Marxism entitled Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military that is currently rocketing up the charts at Amazon.com thanks to the publicity.
Lohmeier said of Austin; “I don’t demonize the man, but I want to make it clear to both him and every service member this agenda, it will divide us, it will not unify us,” making an important point that the policies of the former Raytheon board member will have a detrimental effect on morale and the cohesiveness that is necessary when it comes to the military’s number one mission of protecting America.
That didn’t sit well with the brass which relieved the 14-year veteran of his command, citing the appearance on a podcast as the reason for the dismissal. Lohmeier has appeared on a number of podcasts to discuss his book.
According Military.com: “This decision was based on public comments made by Lt. Col. Lohmeier in a recent podcast,” a Space Force spokesperson said in an email. “Lt. Gen. Whiting has initiated a Command Directed Investigation on whether these comments constituted prohibited partisan political activity.”
It’s hard to imagine that there wouldn’t be a different set of standards if an active duty service member would have given interviews and published a book promoting the toxic Black Lives Matter and its Marxist-inspired agenda.
Republican Rep. Ken Buck of Colorado reacted strongly to the news of the disciplinary action against Lohmeier.
It’s outrageous that Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier was removed from his command in the Space Force for voicing concerns that the U.S. military is promoting Marxist ideologies. https://t.co/U57u2zAwVk

Military.com reported that he had “consulted with his chain of command, public affairs and legal counsel about his plans to publish a book and its contents,” and reports that in an email Lohmeier commented that.
“I was apprised of the option to have my book reviewed at the Pentagon’s prepublication and security review prior to release, but was also informed that it was not required,” he wrote, adding that “My intent never has been to engage in partisan politics. I have written a book about a particular political ideology (Marxism) in the hope that our Defense Department might return to being politically non-partisan in the future as it has honorably done throughout history,” he said.
According to Military.com, Lohmeier had received a holiday call from then-President Donald J. Trump so it is likely that he has been on Austin and the Pentagon’s radar for months.
SECDEF Austin ordered a 60 day stand down to conduct a witch hunt for “white supremacists” after the so-called “insurrection” at the U.S Capitol and has appointed a fanatical far-left Trump-hating zealot named Bishop Garrison as his Senior Advisor For Diversity And Inclusion.

In a 2018 opinion piece unearthed by Revolver News, Garrison refers to online free speech as a “digital black plague” while promoting the debunked Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy and claimed that America is doomed unless extreme censorship is imposed; “If we allow this digital black plague to spread further, the shining city on the hill will undoubtedly find itself alone in the darkness for years to come.” He wrote.
It’s not great publicity for the newly created fourth military branch that Lohmeier has been canceled for telling the truth and a bad omen of what is to come as Biden’s Pentagon has been taken over by evangelists of the “woke” religion the fuels the far-left’s destructive engine.
