WARNING: United Airlines Wants WOKE Pilots

Joining in the chorus of Leftist insanity, United Airlines announced its new pilot diversity initiative.

The company tweeted:

Our flight deck should reflect the diverse group of people on board our planes every day. That’s why we plan for 50% of the 5,000 pilots we train in the next decade to be women or people of color. Learn more and apply now:uafly.co/UnitedAviateAc

Let’s see how safe you feel flying the friendly “woke” skies, as Woke Action replaces Affirmative Action in selecting its pilots. Frankly, I’m fine with meritocracy. But don’t let my zeal for life interfere with United Airlines’ wokeness.

Social media responded at United Airlines’ attempt to virtue-signal to gain a few points with the demented crowd.

Trevor Slade represents the truly disabled that United Airlines didn’t foresee (pun intended):

Unbelievably, no major airline has ever hired a member of the blind community to pilot one of their aircraft. Will American Airlines be the first to break this glass ceiling once and for all? Anti-blind bigotry has no place in the airline industry or anywhere else in society!

I’d like to see a few members of Congress taking that “woke” leap and flying on the first commercial airline that allows blind pilots.

Keri Smith nails this stupidity, calling it racist and sexist.

This is both sexist and racist, towards everyone. Women and people of color don’t need your handouts, as if they can’t achieve on their own. And men and white people don’t deserve discrimination because if their sex or race. Its sick that you’re proud of this.

United decided to put their first tweet in context, tweeting this next:

All the highly qualified candidates we accept into the Academy, regardless of race or sex, will have met or exceeded the standards we set for admittance. ^MJ

If United Airlines hires qualified people, why virtue-signal in the first place?  Isn’t that what you want people to believe about your pilots?

Imagine how people would look at female or non-white-male pilots going forward, if United Airlines implements such a racist, sexist, and quite frankly idiotic Leftist policy? Every non-white-male or female pilot would be looked at as “Affirmative Action”.

I don’t know about you, but when I see a person in a pilot uniform at the airport, I feel confident that my plane will get up and land relatively softly. I actually sleep on the plane occasionally, I feel so safe. Not the case if “woke” pilots are flying.

This respondent posed a good question in his tweet.

They can’t define person of color, so it will be interesting to see what happens with this. If a white man says he is 10% Indian, will they count him, or will they demand DNA test records? Will they count Semitic Jews as “color” or “white”? Its going to be a mess.

Isn’t that the key these days? Just allow people to declare whatever they want to be?

I have a suggestion America, just stop checking those ethnicity and gender boxes. That will solve most of America’s problems. After all, Leftists say that race and gender are fluid. So make them live that lie.

Perhaps Hollywood captured United Airlines’ new policy best in this shot from Airplane!

In case you’re wondering where all the graduates with these new degrees in diversity, equity, and inclusion are going, I give you this nonsense from United Airlines. And if that’s not enough data, how about Coke’s recent request of its white employees to “be less white”.

Wake up, America. But not in that “woke” way!
