Ex-Space Force Commander: DOD Videos Claimed White People Are ‘Inherently Evil’

Samuel Chamberlain, New York Post, May 17, 2021

A recently relieved Space Force commander claimed Monday night that the Pentagon sent servicemembers a video that claimed that America and white people were “evil.”

Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier told Fox News’ “Hannity” that the videos “were sent out to every base [and] servicemember” and “we were asked to watch [them] in preparation for our extremism down days and discussions on race.”

Those videos, Lohmeier added, “taught that the country was evil, that it was founded in 1619 and not 1776, and that whites are inherently evil.”

Lohmeier did not specify when the videos were sent out beyond saying it had happened “in the past ten months, when I was in command of a unit.”


Lohmeier, a former commander of the 11th Space Warning Squadron at Buckley Air Force Base in Colorado, was temporarily reassigned last week due to comments he made on a podcast criticizing the military’s approach to diversity training.
