At Least He Wasn't Ranting About "Purity of Essence" and "Precious Bodily Fluids"

A commander of a U.S. Space Force unit tasked with detecting ballistic missile launches has been fired for comments made during a podcast promoting his new book, which claims Marxist ideologies are becoming prevalent in the United States military.

One might conclude that the fired officer's complaints about diversity and inclusion being Marxist is basically code for the tired, old complaint from white guys that they have to now compete with women and minorities. In short, it's a white supremacy argument. A unified cluture, in that view, is white men at the top and everyone else knowing their place underneath, happily and rythmically rattling their chains.

I'll have to go back and read The Communist Manifesto, for I don't recall it discussing diversity and inclusion.
