There continues to be major changes in the administration.

Not everyone is happy.

Joe Biden fired one top military commander. You won’t believe why.

As Great American Daily reports:

From the moment Joe Biden took office, he focused on smearing all Trump supporters as racists, terrorists and insurrectionists.

Biden’s Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin pledged to purge “extremists” and “white nationalists” from the military.

Critics contend this was really a scheme to exile anyone that voted for Donald Trump from the military and turned the armed forces into another woke institution under the left’s thrall.

Those fears accelerated when the Biden administration removed a Space Force commander for speaking out against what he called the “Marxist” critical race theory.

The head of Space Operations Command Air Force Lt. Gen. Stephen Whiting sacked Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier who served as the commander of the 11th Space Warning Squadron.

Lt. Colonel Lohmeier’s “crime” was speaking out against “diversity and inclusion” training materials that Lohmeier argued were anti-American, divisive political propaganda.

In a podcast interview, Lt. Colonel Lohmeier explained that “our diversity, inclusion, and equity industry and the trainings we’re receiving in the military are rooted in critical race theory.”

Lt. Colonel Lohmeier recounted that the origins of critical race theory—which teaches that America is a racist nation whose every institution is “systemically racist” against minorities—are rooted in Marxist ideology.

“The language of the training, which most people don’t understand but I help lay it out in the book, was devised by Marxists,” Lt. Colonel Lohmeier said. “It’s intended to be divisive and yet we spread it about the military services pretending it’s going to unify everyone.”

Lt. Colonel Lohmeier continued that many in the military were opposed to this anti-American and Marxist ideology infecting the armed forced but that they were afraid to speak out because they might get accused of being racist or losing out on a promotion.

“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,” Lt. Colonel Lohmeier added.

“Or they might not get promoted,” Lt. Colonel Lohmeier continued. “We spend a lot of time talking about Great Power Competition … but we face our greatest threat here at home.”

Lt. Colonel Lohmeier explained that the examples of “extremism” never mentioned Black Lives Matter rioters or any group associated with the left.

Instead, the military focused on the “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.”

Lt. Colonel Lohmeier warned Americans that the military adopting critical race theory was an extension of an effort to demonize and silence conservatives or outright purge them from the military by smearing them as “extremists.”

“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,” Lt. Colonel Lohmeier stated.
