In the wake of an op-ed written by US Air Force Academy professor Lynne Chandler García for the Washington Post in defense of critical race theory teachings in the military, US Representative Mark Green wrote a letter calling for her resignation.

Greene, who serves as a Representative for Tennessee and was a West Point Graduate, wrote in a letter addressed to Air Force Secretary John Roth that "Professor Lynne Chandler García's full-throttled attack on our country and her support for Critical Race Theory render her unqualified to teach in one of our prestigious military academies."

"How are our future Air Force leaders supposed to take an oath to defend the Constitution if they are being taught that it is racist and promotes inequality?" Green continues.

Green goes on to state that teaching "that our country is fundamentally racist" will leave a lasting impact on these forces, and that "making them ashamed of their country will only decrease morale, retention, and unit cohesion."

He adds that critical race theory "reached that the only way to right past racial discrimination is with present racial discrimination," something Green says is "incompatible" with the principles of our founding documents and the Civil Rights Movement, as well as illegal.

"If we allow this destructive ideology to be taught in our Military Service Academies, we will be responsible for this nation’s demise," Green wrote. "Professor García must be removed from her teaching position, and for the sake of our national security: Stop Critical Race Theory from being taught in our military service academies."

García’s op-ed, titled Why US military academies should teach critical race theory, was released on Tuesday by the Washington Post. In it, García backs previous comments made by General Mark Milley in favor of teaching here controversial theory in the US military.

"Critical race theory provides an academic framework to understand... nuances and contradictions. It helps students identify the structural racism and inequality that has been endemic in American society. And it provides methods for deconstructing oppressive beliefs, policies and practices to find solutions that will lead to justice," wrote García.

García claims that teaching critical race theory is patriotic, that is gives a "fuller version of American history," and that it does not "promote division among our military members," as previously reported by The Post Millennial.
