Description

Join Legal Insurrection Foundation (LIF) President, Professor William A. Jacobson, and Matt Lohmeier, public speaker and author of bestselling book, Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military, as they discuss the ever-encroaching march of Wokeness in the U.S. Military and how best to combat it. The virtual event will be held on Sunday, December 11th at 7 PM ET and hosted by LIF's Operations and Editorial Director, and Managing Editor of criticalrace.org, Kemberlee Kaye.

 

Lohmeier’s story meeting Wokeness head-on started after his book Irresistible Revolution was published in May 2021, at which time he was a respected active-duty commander in the newly formed U.S. Space Force. Merely for publishing and speaking publicly about his book, then-Lieutenant Colonel Lohmeier was relieved of his command and subjected to an Inspector General investigation within the Pentagon. 

 

Following this unfortunate turn of events, Lohmeier joined veteran-led nonprofit group STARRS (Stand Together Against Racism and Radicalism in the Services) and actively works to educate Americans about the dangers of racist and radical ideologies infiltrating our military.

 

This past July, LIF released a database on CriticalRace.org cataloguing Critical Race training in military service academies. Our research confirms that all five federal service academies have some form of critical race, anti-racism, or related objectives – often which fall under the umbrella term Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
 

Professor Jacobson noted following the LIF release of military critical race research, "do we really want our future military officers to view themselves and the troops they will command through an obsessive racial lens? Is military cohesion and effectiveness improved by putting people into racial and ethnic boxes? These are questions the military leadership will need to consider as it evaluates whether and how far it takes the teaching of CRT and related ideologies as part of a military service academy education. Because the education of military officers is so important to our nation, public and political scrutiny is justified." 
 

LIF will present its findings in greater detail and then field any questions you might have. 
 

Pre-registration is required. The event is free, though donations are greatly appreciated. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law and go to the Legal Insurrection Foundation, the host of this event.

Legal Insurrection Foundation – Who We Are

Legal Insurrection Foundation (LIF) is one of the leading free speech investigative and media organizations in the country. We research and report on the most important issues facing our country, whether on school campuses, universities, businesses, or government. We also advocate for and walk alongside individuals who are at the epicenter of free speech attacks, shining light on attempts to cancel dissidents.

In early 2021, we launched the website, Critical Race Training In Education (CriticalRace.org), with one-of-a-kind interactive maps and databases of CRT in colleges and universities, medical schools, military service academies, and elite K-12 private schools. The website is the most comprehensive tool available on the subject and has been covered by nearly 100 media outlets. More importantly, there have been over seven million user actions on the website: proof that CriticalRace.org has become an essential tool for parents, students, alumni, and others concerned with the spread of Critical Race-related educational mandates. 

LIF is now recognized as a leader in the parents’ rights movement and has lectured hundreds of state legislators on the problems in education from “woke” indoctrination, and what they can do about it. We are frequent speakers at conferences and in the media on how the harm inflicted through radical ideologies is a threat not only to our students, but to our nation, turning young people against both their parents and their country. We continue to provide informative and educational programming on a variety of topics related to campus free speech, academic freedom, and education.

LIF has seen how investigative journalism coupled with legal expertise can be a winning combination to protect basic freedoms and liberties. Heading into 2023 we plan to scale two of our key initiatives in the areas of Critical Race Theory and parental rights, bringing even more stories, data, and research to the national forefront. 

We have a dedicated audience of readers who welcome our reporting as a counterforce to the bias of mainstream media. Today, the LIF blog brings in an average of 500,000 unique readers and over 1.8 million page views every single month. Our flagship blog is widely recognized as one of the leading conservative free speech websites, and is linked to and cited by other national media outlets daily.

LIF has a fourteen-year history of exposing free speech opponents’ attempts to reshape our country – and then of keeping the pressure on, covering stories the mainstream media won’t. Our relentless pursuit of the truth gives news organizations, elected officials, and activists the ammunition to stop harmful plans in their tracks.
