Pentagon’s New Leftist ‘McCarthyism’ – Space Force Commander Fired for Denouncing Marxist Agenda at DoD

Biden’s Leftist Pentagon Strikes Again – President Biden’s highly politicized Pentagon is not only waging war on anything Trump or MAGA, and purging conservatives from the military, it is persecuting anyone who criticizes the growing neo-Marxist influence at the Defense Department (DoD). Less than a week after 120 retired generals and Admirals denounced the growing threat of Marxism to America’s institutions, including the military, a Space Force commander was fired for voicing similar concerns.

Fox Business News reported that Lt Col. Matthew Lohmeier, commander of 11th Space Warning Squadron at Buckley Air Force Base Colorado, was relieved from his post Friday by Lt. Gen. Stephen Whiting, the head of Space Operations Command. Whiting used the standard military excuse that he had ‘lost confidence’ in Lohmeier’s ability to lead, simply because Lohmeier stated the obvious.

Appearing on the podcast “Information Operation” last week to publicize his new book, “Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military,” Lohmeier criticized Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s highly politicized diversity and inclusion “agenda,” stating:

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.

The commander added factually, the same things I have been emphasizing  since Austin began Biden’s ideological indoctrination at DoD. Namely 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.

A Space Force spokesperson said the politicized persecution didn’t end there stating that “Lt. Gen. Whiting has initiated a Command Directed Investigation on whether these comments constituted prohibited partisan political activity.”

This appears absolutely out of line since nothing Lohmeier said appears partisan. Service members are prohibited from engaging in “partisan political activity” but are allowed to express their personal opinions on matters when not in uniform. And denouncing the demonstrably Marxist underpinnings of current DoD initiatives should be permissible.

In fact, what Lt Col Lohmeier is doing should be what the entire Pentagon leadership should be doing. In comments he made to Military.com, the Air Force Academy graduate said:

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 nonpartisan in the future as it has honorably done throughout history.

Lohmeier told the Information Operation podcast that the young service members are inundated by a “hyperpoliticized work environment where diversity and inclusion initiatives are being pushed constantly.” Lohmeier added that conservatives in the military who are willing to voice their opinions are painted as “extremists.”

The Space Force commander also advised any new service member, from enlisted to officer, to reject critical race theory being taught in the ranks, because it too is a form of extremism by the definitions outlined in DoD Instruction 1325.06, “Handling Dissident and Protest Activities Among Members of the Armed Forces.”

The neo-Marxist ideological threat to our nation’s military is real. And so is the Pentagon’s new leftist McCarthyism being used to coerce acceptance. ADN

Straight out of the Soviet Union. Purge the military of anybody and everybody except for unmitigated Communist hypocrites. That way if the little peons decide to rise up in revolt their masters in the Politburo will be able to crush them.

Can’t believe that boot licking A kisser Whiting is still in. Trump should have flushed that worthless pos away years ago. Whiting was so hated by troops for his communists agenda. Now he really wins big. He would sell his soul to china or russia.

I want my military to focus on new and more efficient ways to kill the enemy. We have the diplomatic services to focus on diversity and inclusion initiatives.

The citizens (not subjects) of this great Republic are seeing it destroyed right before our very eyes. If we cannot restore the basic tenants of the Constitution and Bill of Rights it would appear that our country is headed to an irreconcilable and permanent division.

after several hundred years of anglo-saxon personality type working for the benefit of humanity of a civilized healthy safer world, all I experience is hate towards the same. the hate and undoing of ten thousand year goal by many almost achieved for those willing to work the concept, disheartening as negative generational thinking/doing by choice or not, yep-possibly ending of the future…as some thinking -poo’d on them now as they laugh as the turning of the over world ….someone actually proud of themselves as they actually predicted it in ancient text-and now here it is

I wish people would quit using McCarthyism in a negative sense. McCarthyism, properly understood, means anti-Communist investigation and exclusion.

McCarthy was a hero. We owe him and Hoover a debt of gratitude. Thanks to their efforts, the Communist takeover of our country stalled for decades. They stalled it dead in its tracks.

It didn’t get going again, until they were gone. Then, as soon as they were out of the way, it took off. Brennan’s an example. No sooner was Hoover in his grave than Brennan was hired by the FBI. Brennan voted Communist in college, but, in his FBI interview, lied and denied his Communist sympathies. He failed a lie detector test, fessed up, and was hired anyway. He LIED and was hired anyway! He’s laughed about it in recent years, saying it shows the FBI’s respect for freedom of speech.

Sorry, but Communists do NOT belong in our FBI. Wtf is wrong with people that he can talk like that and get away with that.

There is nothing wrong with rooting Communists out of our institutions and cultural megaphones (Hollywood, MSM, and universities). We SHOULD root them out. They don’t belong in such critical positions. They are a threat to our country and national security.

Communists now have taken over, and they are rooting out Conservatives and those who oppose Marxism and its offshoot, CRT. That is not McCarthyism. It is the opposite of McCarthyism.
