New Concerns Rise Over The Pentagon Being Dominated By 'Wokeism'

The dismissal of a Space Force commander for comments on two podcasts, in which he raised concerns that critical race theory is being promoted in the military, has triggered the outrage of GOP members of Congress.

Critical race theory holds that systemic racism is part of American society and that historical prejudice influences the way minorities are treated today.

In a letter Wednesday to Chief of Space Operations Gen. Jay Raymond and acting Air Force Secretary John Roth, two dozen members of Congress called for the reinstatement of Lt. Cmdr. Matthew Lohmeier. They wrote that "promoting critical race theory will disrupt the good order and discipline of the Space Force and eviscerate our nation's ability to attract patriotic talent to serve in uniform and fight our wars."
