The Cultural War Campaign

Matthew Lohmeier is pleased to announce that he has accepted the position of Executive Vice President of STARRS, an organization of veterans and patriotic citizens standing against the CRT/DEI/Woke agenda being pushed on service members in the military and academies. Their goal is to eliminate this radical ideology from the military and return to merit and warfighting readiness. He will begin work with STARRS on 1 July 2024.

He and STARRS have begun an important new campaign effort in our goal to eliminate the CRT/DEI/Woke agenda in the Pentagon because the stakes for our country have never been higher!

We are in a Cultural War and we are losing as evidenced by wide-spread student riots supporting a terrorist organization-Hamas

It’s not a shooting war; but it is more deadly as it targets the heart and soul of our Nation—our traditional values, Constitution, Rights, and Citizens

The Cultural War is disguised behind nice sounding words Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI); but hidden inside is deadly Cultural Marxism

DEI/Wokeness infects all of society including our military

If a beer, shoe or coffee business goes woke, you can choose a non-woke business
But when your military goes woke, there is no choice—our Nation and you are in great peril

STARRS Mission is to cause our military to refocus on warfighting readiness and the reason it exists: to fight and win our Nation’s wars

HOW is this done? By eliminating all aspects of the CRT/DEI/Woke ideology agenda from the Department of Defense


STARRS is thrilled to announce that Lt Colonel Matt Lohmeier (formerly with USSF/USAF, USAFA 2006 grad, author of the best-seller Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military) has accepted the position of Executive Vice President as of 1 July 2024.

His leadership and talent as a cultural thought leader are critical to our cause.

STARRS is also excited to be collaborating with production company Root/Cause to promote a documentary (currently titled “Against All Enemies”; see Documentary Intro Video below) this fall.

It chronicles both Matt’s personal journey and the fight he and STARRS are currently engaged in to counter the forces of the totalitarian/Marxist ideology attacking and undermining our most trusted and important public institution–our military.

STARRS is currently raising an initial $300K to:

Bring the STARRS organization to the next level to greatly increase our outreach and educational effectiveness and capabilities towards the goal of eliminating the CRT/DEI agenda and advancing merit in the military. This includes having a greater reach in Congress, the American public, media, conferences, and other events/opportunities.

Promote the release of the major documentary about the cultural war featuring Matt’s story coming this Fall.

Produce additional short-form videos to expose the problems we face and educate Americans on what can be done to save our Republic.

Increase our ability to spread the word via our Project50 in the 50 states to alert citizens of what’s been happening to our military.

STARRS Cultural War Campaign Information (pdf)



Lt Col Matthew Lohmeier, USAF/USSF (former) is a military veteran, political and cultural thought leader, and author of the bestselling book Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military. He is currently working with independent film producers on a feature-length documentary that will come out in 2024.

His book Irresistible Revolution was published in May 2021, at which time Matt was a respected active-duty commander in the newly formed US Space Force. The book’s primary aim was to invite senior military leaders to abandon the divisive politicization of the military workplace and to educate all members of the armed forces.

For publishing and speaking about his book, then-Lieutenant Colonel Lohmeier was relieved of his command and subjected to an Inspector General investigation launched from the Pentagon. He subsequently joined the nation’s biggest media personalities to discuss the proliferation of Marxist-rooted Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the military and its divisive impact on our military. His watershed work shaped the nation’s dialogue about the United States military.

Matt separated from active duty on September 1, 2021. Since then, he has been an outspoken critic of the discriminatory practices of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) industry and is a public speaker and consultant on Marxist ideology and tactics, CRT, military culture, and the principles of liberty.

A 2006 graduate of the United States Air Force Academy, Matt began his active-duty military career as a fighter pilot, flying over 1,200 hours in the T-38 as an instructor pilot followed by flying the F-15C. After flying, he cross-trained into space operations and worked in space-based missile warning.

Matt promoted two years below-the-zone to lieutenant colonel, graduated at the top of his classes earning him the distinguished graduate (DG) award at four different Air Force schools, and served as aide-de-camp for a four-star general for one year.

In October 2020, he transferred into the United States Space Force and was placed in command of our nation’s space-based missile warning.

Matt has two master’s degrees—a master’s in military operational art and science, and a Master of Philosophy in military strategy from the School of Advanced Air and Space Studies (SAASS). His website is
