The Republican Party isn’t going down without a fight.
According to Fox News report, “two dozen Republicans sent a letter to the acting secretary of the U.S. Space Force on Wednesday, demanding a recently dismissed commander be reinstated after he was relieved of his duties for comments about Marxism and critical race theory in the military.”
Free speech is still a thing in America the last time I checked so kudos to the GOP for fighting back.
“Space Force Guardians conduct can’t-fail missions twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week: we cannot allow temporary political appointees at the Department of Defense who are ideologically motivated to purge those men and women in uniform who do not agree with the cultural or political fads of the moment,” read a letter from a group of Republicans including Rep. Mo Brooks.
“We call on you to reinstate Lieutenant Colonel Lohmeier immediately, barring any violations of the UCMJ which have not yet been publicly disclosed,” the letter states. “Whether you agree with him or not, no rational American can review his level-headed critique of the critical race theory-based ‘diversity, equity, and inclusion’ training the military is currently conducting and conclude that his comments on that subject deserve relief of command.”
