Congressman calling for firing of Air Force Academy professor | Beaufort County Now | Stands up against Critical Race Theory

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Mark Alexander at the Patriot Post is reporting:

House Armed Services Committee member Mark Green (R-TN) is calling for the firing of Air Force Academy professor of political science Lynne Chandler Garcia after she penned a Washington Post op-ed promoting the installment of racist Critical Race Theory curricula at our nation’s military service academies. Garcia, in an apparent long-distance suck-up to Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark A. Milley after his recent defense of CRT, noted that Milley’s promotion of CRT “shows that it is not unpatriotic to understand a fuller version of American history, nor does it promote division among our military members.”

Garcia, who has never served a day in uniform, apparently has such a high opinion of herself that she knows what’s best for the next generation of military officers.

Her CRT promotion drew a strong and well-deserved rebuke from my friend Mark Green, who, prior to being elected to Congress, was a West Point graduate and a decorated combat Special Operations Flight Surgeon who had a key role with Operation Red Dawn and the capture of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. Below is his letter to Acting Secretary of the Air Force John P. Roth:

The Honorable John P. Roth
Acting Secretary of the Air Force
1670 Air Force Pentagon
Washington, D.C. 20330-1670

Dear Acting Secretary Roth: 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?

As a graduate of West Point and Army veteran, I know firsthand what is taught at these service academies leaves a lasting impact. It was at West Point where I first raised my right hand and took the oath to defend our Constitution. My professors there taught me the importance of serving our nation—both in uniform and in public office. And it was at West Point where I was first inspired to run for office.

Teaching our next generation that our country is fundamentally racist is not only propagandizing lies about our great nation, it will also undoubtedly leave an impact on our nation’s Armed Forces and national security. If we want servicemembers who are proud to defend this country, we must not denigrate the very principles upon which it was founded. Making them ashamed of their country will only decrease morale, retention, and unit cohesion.

Critical Race Theory teaches that the only way to right past racial discrimination is with present racial discrimination. This teaching is utterly incompatible with the principles in the Declaration of Independence and the Civil Rights Movement—not to mention illegal. Our country already lived through a horrific era when people were judged by the color of their skin rather than by the content of their character—we must never go back to this way of thinking.

Lastly, the Constitution has brought freedom and self-governance, not only to the United States of America, but to nations around the globe. Our men and women in uniform have been fighting for the ideals of democracy, freedom, and equality throughout the world ever since. To suggest that these causes and wars were birthed out of racism disrespects those who died fighting against the Nazis in Europe, communists in Asia, or terrorists in the Middle East.

If we allow this destructive ideology to be taught in our Military Service Academies, we will be responsible for this nation’s demise. 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.

The Trojan horses now raising their ugly heads within our purged military leadership are joining up with the other already saturated with Marxism Western Institutions (such as our non military institutions of learning) in their mission to destroy the objects that make us a constitutional republic of free citizens.

We live in a dangerous world full of serious threats, but this internal threat, in my view, is the most serious threat of all to our country. Regular folks must mobilize in opposition to this dangerous Marxist dogma coming at us from all directions these days. We must stop it in order to save our country and secure a decent future for our offspring.
