FAA Senior Officials Plan To Cull White Male Pilots

The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh published leaked internal footage Wednesday of senior officials planning at the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Flight Program Operations division to decrease the number of White male pilots.

“I’ve obtained internal footage of senior officials at the FAA’s Flight Program Operations division — which is responsible for all aspects of aircraft operations — workshopping a plan to reduce the number of white males in aviation,” Walsh wrote in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

Walsh then introduced the leaked video by writing, “The footage begins with FAA acting deputy chief operating officer Angela McCullough saying more workers need to go from ‘ramp to cockpit,’ meaning she wants to see more baggage handlers become airline pilots.”

As the meeting continues, McCullough encourages the participants to “get a little uncomfortable” as she brings the criticism that FAA Flight Operations is “White male-dominated” and suggests that managers should “talk about what the future could look like.”

David “Wil” Riggins, the FAA’s Vice President of Flight Program Operations, then told the group in response to McCullough’s comments about her co-workers’ gender and race, “That’s great, honestly. Those are some words that we really need to spend some time digging through and thinking about.”

“This footage, which is from April of 2022, is a sign of a much larger problem,” Walsh wrote. “Over the past few weeks, I’ve heard from several members of the aviation industry who tell me that DEI is endangering the public and distracting them from their work.”

“It’s only a matter of time until this combination of incompetence and anti-white discrimination leads to a major air disaster. The aviation industry needs a completely new mandate — one that’s focused solely on safety — before a lot of people die,” Walsh added.

Mark Cuban recently drew fire from two government officials on X for disclosing that he does use race and gender as selection criteria when hiring, “I only ever hire the person that will put my business in the best position to succeed. And yes, race and gender can be part of the equation. I view diversity as a competitive advantage.”
