LIMBAUGH: Leftist Racial Agitation Damages And Divides America

Just when you think racial agitators can’t get more outrageous and ridiculous, they do. We see fruits of this evil obsession every single day.

Throughout the pandemic, the media preached that historical racism in the United States disproportionately impacted African Americans. Hollywood bombards us with race-shaming on show after show, using fictional characters to lecture us on the pervasiveness of white supremacy, stirring racial resentment and division in the name of healing.The 1619 Project is closely related to the academic movement known as critical race theory, which began among outlying academics in the 1970s but has now insinuated itself into the mainstream of academic and cultural thought. One of its central premises is that white supremacy is prevalent in America and maintains power through our systemically racist legal system.

The ever-growing acceptance of this insanity is evidenced by its presence in America’s military institutions and the seeming powerlessness of those courageously opposing it. Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier, commander of the 11th Space Warning Squadron at the Buckley Air Force Base in Colorado, was relieved from duty because of a “loss of trust and confidence in his ability to lead.” Actually, it was because he criticized critical race theory in a public podcast, saying it is very dangerous to our military.

Lohmeier pulled no punches in his comments or in his book, “Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military.” “Our diversity, inclusion and equity industry and the trainings we’re receiving in the military … are rooted in critical race theory, which is rooted in Marxism,” Lohmeier said.

This bold whistleblower, instead of being praised and rewarded for his candor, was punished and silenced. Lohmeier’s firing was ostensibly based on his injection of politics into his job, but he was merely speaking truth. Only in the Left’s world could criticism of the looming presence of Marxism in the institution dedicated to protecting and defending our national security be considered controversial or political. Punishing Lohmeier for his comments also gives aid and comfort to communist China and other American enemies, which consistently disparage the United States as a racist and civil rights-abusing nation.

Don’t be fooled by the Left’s excuses. Leftists will allow no opposition to their extremist positions. Their venomous narrative about our founding is distinctly anti-American and hostile to America’s interests and thus wholly inappropriate and dangerous for the military, which should be focused on defending us, not serving as a laboratory for the left’s pernicious social experiments.

Major kudos to Lt. Col. Lohmeier for speaking out even at the expense of his own interests. That is true patriotism and a model for the rest of us, who must stand up against this concerted effort to undermine America’s greatness, cohesiveness and racial relations.
