FAA’s DEI madness to focus on hiring people with ‘severe intellectual’ and ‘psychiatric’ disabilities

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is actively recruiting workers who suffer “severe intellectual” disabilities, psychiatric problems and other mental and physical conditions under a diversity and inclusion hiring initiative spelled out on the agency’s website.

“Targeted disabilities are those disabilities that the Federal government, as a matter of policy, has identified for special emphasis in recruitment and hiring,” the FAA’s website states. “They include hearing, vision, missing extremities, partial paralysis, complete paralysis, epilepsy, severe intellectual disability, psychiatric disability and dwarfism.”

The initiative is part of the FAA’s “Diversity and Inclusion” hiring plan, which says “diversity is integral to achieving FAA’s mission of ensuring safe and efficient travel across our nation and beyond.” The FAA’s website shows the agency’s guidelines on diversity hiring were last updated on March 23, 2022.

The FAA, which is overseen by Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s Department of Transportation, is a government agency charged with regulating civil aviation and employs roughly 45,000 people…

  1. It’s not madness. The “fundamental transformation” of the US into a third world hellhole begins with mistaking intent with incompetence. Throw in Cloward Piven with our illegal immigration system, a race war and moral annihilation with gay marriage and the trans movement and voila, you have Haiti.

    Same thing went on in the Church. For years apologists said Francis was incompetent or mistaken and in over his head and now we have an anti Church manifesting.

  2. Airlines are also doing the same…

    Knew of the following people:

    He fell asleep during a night-flight, crashed. He survived that crash, NOT wearing his seatbelt is what saved his life, it would’ve sliced him at the neck and waistline if he had been wearing it at the speeds he crashed at.

    She crashed into the side of a mountain on a flight. She and her passenger didn’t survive. Inexperience in mountain flying is what led to her death.

    Two guys, one a brand new private pilot, and one guy still a student. They rented a plane. A pair of instructors, both with more experience, had reserved the plane before them, bad weather was moving in, so those two instructors decided to not fly. The two inexperienced guys got the plane earlier. Maybe doing some work in the traffic pattern would’ve been good for the weather. They flew off. The bad weather came in, they got disoriented, crashed, and died. Pure inexperience, and overconfidence led to their deaths.

    An instructor and her student. A completely random bird-strike. Just pure bad luck of the draw. They crashed, and both died.

    Those all happened once per year.

    My point is that flying is unforgiving of mistakes an inexperience. Not everyone is cut out for flying a plane (I wasn’t). A lot of these people might not survive the basic training. Putting them through such dangerous training is wrong, forcing them through such training when they may not be qualified is even worse.

    People with mental problems shouldn’t be allowed to fly a plane, see Germanwings Flight 9525


  3. Yeah, Jmy’s right, it’s all intentional. It’s all connected, and all intentional. Obama meant what he said and Americans said wheeeeee! We hate this place let’s burn it down, let’s wreck healthcare, safety, security, a nice neighborhood, schools, being able to just buy an edible hamburger, cars, gasoline, heating your home, let’s turn it into a sh—-le, so we can feel GOOD about ourselves. And they stupidly, on the most huge, cosmic level, elected a man so seething with hatred for America, he set it in motion with his billionaire supporters and friends. Now it’s here. And they can’t all f— it up fast enough, including Jorge the commie. Well done Americans.

  4. I wish Mark and other traditional writers would use every possible word to mock the left beginning with DIE vs DEI. Don’t give an inch in validating their new words, ideas, acronyms, etc. by using them.

    Mundabor similarly acquiesces in current posts. Nothing cuts better at the knees than mockery.

  5. The January issue of the American Journal of Nursing has an article entitled “Sanism: What it is and why it matters to nursing.” Sanism is described in the article as “a kind of ableism” and is “connected to multiple forms of oppression” including “colonialism, gender- and class-based violence, and exclusion, denial, and epistemic injustice.” I wondered if possibly the author was pranking this but upon further reflection….I think she means it. Apparently she also teaches something called “mad studies” which I had never heard of before.
