DEI threatens air travel safety as FAA uses DEI to hire air traffic controllers | Eastern North Carolina Now

Biden's FAA has brought the racist DEI front and center in hiring air traffic controllers instead of looking for people with skill and experience.  Filling ethnic and other quotas is stressed instead.  The result is a number of near misses at airports that signal a decline in air travel safety.  Biden is also pusing airlines to implement DEI with pilot hires, which would just make air travel that much more unsafe.

This comes as a DEI hire in the Secret Service on Kamala Harris' guard detail attacked colleagues and had to be wrestled to the ground, handcuffed, and her gun taken away.

No, you are exaggerating to justify your own beliefs.

Then Biden and Buttigieg are clearly idiots because they are pushing the hiring of blind people as air traffic controllers. That is one of the DEI categories right on their list.

Because only an idiot would hire a blind man to judge a beauty contest. Unbunch your panties.

The Biden regime is giving special DEI preferences to categories who cannot function effectively as air traffic controllers. Why would you think they aren't hiring based on those stated DEI preferences? When the "federal government" is the Biden regime, I would not put anything past them, and experience shows they usually do these political things that they say they are doing.

No question. Just take a minute to find out instead of saying, that person is "trans" so we wont hire them. The federal government isn't filling positions with people who who cant do the job.
Your worry is exaggerated and an attempt to score political point.

When a job like air traffic controller is critical for the safety of others, it is irresponsible to put people in that job who are not physically or mentally capable of doing it. That is exactly what the Biden FAA is doing with their DEI policies, and in all likelihood people will die from it. If they want to hire persons with these conditions, surely they can find other jobs for them where their conditions will not endanger public safety.

I stand by my post. To automatically disqualify is wrong. That's happened for too long in this country.

DEI is, indeed, an "ism" as I will explain.

The issue here is DEI, not ADA. Nice attempt to deflect, but you are wrong. These are categories that the Buttigieg-led DOT, which is over the FAA has set out as hiring preferences under DEI. It is hard to imagine anyone in most of these categories having the physical or mental ability to properly function as an air traffic controller. Any ADA complaint would be quickly dismissed on that basis. The Biden FAA is trying to recruit people in these categories as air traffic controllers and give them a preference over well qualified applicants. Do you want someone with a severe intellectual disability or a psychiatric disability controlling the takeoff or landing of a plane YOU are on?

But then again, you previously said you thought people with criminal records should be hired in retail businesses.

DEI is an "ism". It is pure Marxism. The "E" in DEI stands for "equity", which in the Orwellian newspeak of today's far left is a term for equality of result. That concept comes straight from Karl Marx's "Communist Manifesto" and is completely contradictory to the democratic American concept of equality of opportunity. If you are for DEI, you are a Marxist.

And I will add, automatically disqualifying a person from a job is an "ism". Giving a person a chance to show they can do it is the opposite.
Therefore DEI is the opposite of any "ism" you care to discuss.

I think the point is an employer should not dismiss an application due to an ADA recognized disability. Upon further review an employer can still hire who they think is a best fit.
If you automatically disqualify people you might miss something and it isn't right. No person should be automatically disqualified from a job.

Only to the extent that it would be rare to find one FAA air traffic controller applicant who checks all those boxes, but it would not be uncommon to check two or three or even four. How are some of these categories even going to function as an air traffic controller? A blind controller who can't see situations out the control tower windows or see the sweep of the radar screen? A deaf controller who cannot hear the radio communications with pilots? And how is someone with a severe intellectual disability or a psychiatric disorder going to appropriately comprehend what is going on? DEI categories like that endanger the flying public. There have already been some near misses, so how long until people die from these insane DEI policies at the Biden FAA?
