A commander in the United States Space Force that was relieved of duty after voicing concerns over Marxist critical race theory teachings in the military is now number three on the Amazon bestseller list.
Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier, after going on a podcast to promote his book Irresistible Revolution: Marxism's Goal Of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military, was removed from his post.
The book, which was self-published last week, looks into the "impact of a neo-Marxist agenda” and how the “Black Lives Matter movement, anti-racism, postmodernism, [and] political correctness” affects the national security of the US, according to the book's description.
"Lt. Gen. Stephen Whiting, Space Operations Command commander, relieved Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier of command of the 11th Space Warning Squadron, Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado, May 14, due to loss of trust and confidence in his ability to lead," said the Space Force in a statement to the Washington Examiner.
US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has reportedly expressed disappointment in the matter.
The book is preceded on the bestseller list only by Mark R. Levin's book American Marxism, and the popular graduation season Dr. Seuss book Oh The Places You'll Go.
