Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier: "What I've been seeing in the military during the past year specifically, has been what I'll call the hyper-politicization of our military forces ... ."
That was Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier, a Space Force officer who is leaving the military in September.
Lohmeier identified Marxist ideology in the Armed Forces' diversity, equity and inclusion trainings.
The lieutenant colonel submitted formal complaints to all his superiors after seeing critical race theory pushed on Air Force service members.
When his complaints were dismissed, Lohmeier authored Irresistible Revolution, a book condemning Marxist agendas he was seeing infiltrate the U.S. military.
After speaking out against the Marxist training, Lohmeier was punished.
Lt. Col. Lohmeier: "I spoke up and said 'we need to remove politics from our military environment,' and I was relieved of my command ... ."
Lt. Gen. Stephen Whiting relieved Lohmeier of his command in May, claiming the move was "due to loss of trust and confidence in his ability to lead."
Lohmeier then requested an early retirement and honorable discharge from the forces. The Air Force secretary at the time denied him an early retirement but agreed to separate him honorably from the military.
While Lohmeier can no longer serve his county in uniform, he hopes to sound the alarm over critical race theory and continue defending America.
Lohmeier insists members of the military should be able to expose Marxist ideology wherever it exists — without fear of punishment.
