Decorated Military Official Fired for Challenging Ridiculous ‘Woke’ Rule

This needs to change.

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, after at least two interviews in which he discussed 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, and 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 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 added. “We spend a lot of time talking about Great Power Competition … but we face our greatest threat here at home.”

Lohmeier criticized the Air Force’s materials he was given to conduct the stand-down on extremism 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 that were given in the training did not mention riots during the summer of 2020 but only had to do with “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” but said, “if we pursue this agenda, it will divide us. It will not unify us.”

He said 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 said at his base, 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.

He said neo-Marxist thought has found a welcome home in the Democrat Party. “What you see happening in the U.S. military at the moment is that if you’re a conservative, then you’re lumped into a group of people who are labeled extremists if you voice your views. If you’re aligned with the left, then it’s OK to be an activist online because no one is going to hold you accountable.”

He advised new troops to push back against critical race theory because it is “discriminatory” and is a form of extremism, according to DoD Instruction 1325.06. “People need to be courageous,” he said.

Lohmeier said it is his personal opinion that Chinese President Xi Jinping would love nothing more than to watch “us rot like this from the inside because that means there will be no great power competition between the United States and China. There will not need to be.”

He said other active-duty troops have reached out to thank him for writing his book, saying they had no voice.

Wood had joked to Lohmeier during the interview, “You’ll probably be removed after this interview goes live.”

A Space Force spokesperson told, which first reported Whiting’s decision to fire Lohmeier, the 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 said.

Breitbart News contacted the Air Force for more details on Sunday but did not receive a response by publication.

Lohmeier also appeared May 12 on The Steve Gruber podcast to discuss his book, according to CNN. During that interview, he criticized the New York Times‘ 1619 Project as “anti-America” and said, “it denies America’s founding philosophy and insists that the whole purpose for the founding of the country was to institute slavery [inaudible] and it’s a teaching that I heard at my base.”

Lohmeier said during the interview he has tried to push back against these narratives using official chain-of-command processes and the Air Force inspector general’s office. “The most important thing is that people need to be courageous,” he said. “We need to reject critical race theory.”

Lohmeier told, “My intent never has been to engage in partisan politics. I have written a book about a particular political ideology in the hope that our Defense Department might return to being politically non-partisan in the future as it has honorably done throughout history.”

Republican lawmakers expressed outrage over Lohmeier’s firing.

Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) called Lohmeier a hero in a tweet Sunday evening.

Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) called it “outrageous” that Lohmeier was fired for voicing concern that the U.S. military is promoting Marxist ideologies.

And Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) tweeted Sunday:

“Lt. Col. Lohmeier is a Patriot telling the truth about the attempted wokeification of our military — and worse. His demotion is clearly retaliatory. I will be seeking action on this in the Armed Services Committee.”

Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) last week introduced a bill that would ban CRT from being taught at military academies, as reported by Breitbart News, and other Republicans have introduced legislation against CRT in recent days.

  1. Fire the sob that fired him, why in hell are we letting ourselves be turned into a impotent liberal run anti American everything great haters.

  2. We had a chance to end this bulls**t when we had thousands of troops in D.c.!! Shoulda done it!

  3. As the spouse of a 22 year Air Force Officer I am grieved that our military is being brought into this. Many people worked hard to combat racism, and now it seems our government is doing just the opposite. My understanding of Critical Race Theory also brings to light a track on the way to Socialism that often leads to Communism. As a teenager I learned, from a man who lived Communism, and who taught s how bad Communism is for the people of any country that allows communism to take over any country. Communism raises some to be the “elite”, but the rest of the people live in abject poverty. Too many young people believe that Socialism will give them free education and free other things, when in FACT just the opposite happens. Wake up Americans before it is too late.

  4. after just 100 days in office and and the terrorist BLM, and Antifa are endorsed the military is being re educated as well as socialist ideals being taught in public schools wake up america

  5. Stalin purged the Russian military shortly before the beginning of WW2, The result was 26 million Russian causalities during WW2. Biden and the Democrat party are increasingly bearing a close resemblance to Stalin and the communist party.

  6. Yes,

    The real supporters of Russia are “now” in the Oval Office. Remember the Kenyan telling the Russian envoy, “Tell Vlad I’ll have much more leadway after the election”. And Ly’in Biden shut’s down the Keysone Pipeline and 10,000 jobs are lost his first day after the theft of the election. And yesterday he tell’s Vlad that he can run his Nord 2 Pipeline from Russia to Germany. When does Biden plan to surrender all U.S. troops in Europe? Or will he make sure all of them are Republican’s first! America need’s to impeach this guy and trie all of them for this coup d’Etat against our real President!

  7. The problem is that Those who stole the elections are in charge and opposition will not be tolerated
    The GOP can object all they want but Col Lohmeier is the first of hundreds of thousands that Sec Def Austin will fire.

    The new JCOS Mantra;
    “Defense of the Republic is Racist.”

    China’s coup de gras EMP will happen if America wakes up.

  8. What ever happened to FREEDOM of SPEECH? Critical Race Theory is the most ABSURD subject offered (required) in the education of all students. I always thought that the NEW REGIME in our Red House (formerly the White House) was far left Socialists. I was WRONG. It is more like Nazi Germany. The public must think and act as our fragile leader Puppet Joe and his cohorts DICTATE to us lowly LEGAL American Citizens. Heaven help our country.
