From the cited article...

..."Irresistible Revolution is a timely and bold contribution from an active-duty Space Force lieutenant colonel who sees the impact of a neo-Marxist agenda at the ground level within our armed forces," a description of the book reads.

Lohmeier sat down last week with L. Todd Wood of the podcast "Information Operation," hosted by Creative Destruction, or CD, Media, to promote the book. He spoke about U.S. institutions, including universities, media and federal agencies including the military, that he said are increasingly adopting leftist practices. These practices -- such as diversity and inclusion training -- are the systemic cause for the divisive climate across America today, he said....

[emphasis mine]

Interesting that he apparently thinks trying to counter the effects of centuries of systemic racism is a divisive policy.

It is divisive but it certainly isn't Marxist at least not in the USSR/PRC way and it takes a twisted mind to make it about marxism. The movement is about valuing people despite being different from you. It's about opening eyes - conservatives by definition avoid "awakenings".

But, apparently, some eyes are adverse to that.

And that seems to be the problem here...

How do we move people into pilot positions based upon ability to protect us, and not skin color?
