Marxism – and the US Military
Lt Col. Matthew Lohmeier, USAF, had appeared on a podcast when he made comments – That led to a ‘loss of trust…in his ability to lead’, the Space Force said.
LTC Lohmeier had been the commander of 11th Space Warning Squadron at Buckley Air Force Base Colorado; he was removed from the role Friday
LTC Lohmeier added: ‘The diversity, inclusion and equity industry and the training we are receiving in the military…is rooted in critical race theory, which is rooted in Marxism.’
‘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.
‘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.’
He then described the New York Times 1619 Project as ‘anti-American’, adding: ‘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.
‘If you want to disagree with that, then you start (being) labeled all manner of things including racist.’
His book Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military looks at the ‘impact of a neo-Marxist agenda’ on American security.
LTC Lohmeier said he had discussed the book with his superiors.
He told The Washington Examiner: ‘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’re willing to voice your views.
‘And if you’re aligned with the Left, then it’s OK to be an activist online because no one is going hold you accountable.’
In an email, to The Military Times, he added: ‘My intent never has been to engage in partisan politics.
He said active service members have written to thank him for his comments ‘because we don’t have a voice anymore.
We will have a new understanding of what our world has become and what we would like it to be in the decades and centuries to come. And “we” means we. While the majority have, apparently, learned nothing at all from what has happened, they will eventually catch up.
There is no way that knowledge gained by a wide-awake 15% or 20% of the population will not end up being shared by almost everyone. Once the truth is out, it tends to stay out. As H.R. Haldeman so wisely put it, “you can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube”.
Here are Ten Things We Have Learned During the Covid Coup.
1. Our political system is hopelessly corrupt.
Virtually all politicians are hopelessly corrupt. No political party can be trusted. They all can be and have been, bought.
2. Democracy is a sham.
It has been a sham for a very long time. There will never be any real democracy when money and power amount to the same thing.
3. The system will stop at nothing to hold on to its power and, if possible, increase its levels of control and exploitation.
It has no scruples. No lie is too outrageous, no hypocrisy too nauseating, no human sacrifice too great.
4. So-called radical movements are usually nothing of the sort.
From whatever direction they claim to attack the system, they are just pretending to do so, and serve to channel discontent in directions that are harmless to the power clique and even useful to its agendas.
5. Any “dissident” voice you have ever heard of through corporate media is probably fake.
The system does not hand out free publicity to its actual enemies.
6. Most people in our society are cowards.
They will jettison all the fine values and principles which they have been loudly boasting about all their lives merely to avoid the slightest chance of public criticism, inconvenience, or even minor financial loss.
7. The mainstream media is nothing but a propaganda machine for the system…
…and those journalists who work for it have sold their sorry souls, placing their (often minimal) writing skills entirely at the disposition of Power.
8. Police are not servants of the public…
…but servants of a powerful and extremely wealthy minority that seeks to control and exploit the public for its own narrow and greedy interests.
9. Scientists cannot be trusted.
They will use the hypnotic power of their white coats and authoritative status for the benefit of whoever funds their work and lifestyle. He who pays the piper calls the tune.
10. Progress is a misleading illusion.
The “progress” of increasing automation and industrialization does not go hand in hand with progress in the quality of human life, but in fact, will “progressively” reduce it to the point of complete extinction.

(Thinker) Palestinians’ Lie and Count on Your Ignorance
It’s a good article and worth your time to read it. Ironically, what many people forget, or are unaware of is that prior to 1948 Jews living in British Palestine were called Palestinians…
