Back in college there was a young lady who was really out there. I mean she wore funky clothes, said crazy things and had a far-away look in her eyes. Most of what she did and said didn’t reflect any common sense. She earned the nickname Space Kadet—with a “K” for extra Krazy. She was very intelligent, but, boy, was she different. Fast forward to today when the United States has officially entered the realm of having a Space Force. The mission of the Space Force is to fly, fight, and win. The website talks a lot about preparing for the 22nd Century and defending “our way of life on earth through our interests in space.” There must be a lot of confusion among leadership about who they are defending.
CNN reports that Space Force Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier joined The Steve Gruber podcast to discuss his new book, “Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military,” which alleges that Marxist ideologies are becoming widespread within the armed forces. He said, “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 said that far-right political movements in the military are harshly punished, and that far-left movements and ideas deserve the same treatment. The Washington Times reports he argued that leftist ideas and practices embraced by the government, academia, the media and now the US military are proving a divisive force in the ranks and that the Defense Department should take steps to return to a more “politically nonpartisan” course. When asked exactly what he meant, Lohmeier pointed to the New York Times 1619 Project, as “anti-American…that at the time the country ratified the United States Constitution, it codified White supremacy as the law of the land.” Lohmeier said, “If you want to disagree with that, then you start (being) labeled all manner of things including racist.”
Not only that, but you could lose your job. And Lohmeier did. Military.com reported that Lohmeier was relieved of his post May 15 by Lt. General Stephen Whiting, head of Space Operations Command “over a loss of confidence in his ability to lead.” The decision was based on his podcast comments. The infiltration of Marxism in the US military is a threat to national security, especially since it has a Constitutional duty to protect against all enemies foreign and domestic. Communism, socialism, fascism are all cousins of the same Marxist family and should never be allowed in our military. Jesus said in John 10:10, “The thief comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” Marxism is an enemy within that can destroy our nation. General Whiting has earned the title Space Kadet—with a “K”–for extra deceived. Say it with me…Stupidocrisy.
