Recently, the aviation industry has been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. We’ve witnessed countless high-tech security breaches and alarming incidents of pilots falling ill, or worse, dying suddenly in-flight, along with passengers WWE-brawling in the aisles. Add to that the chaos and mob fights in airports, TSA agents groping and stealing, windows and doors blowing off the planes, and now a creepy and perverted “drag queen” trend is emerging in the industry, spearheaded by United Airlines CEO and cross-dresser Scott Kirby.

This is Scott Kirby, the CEO of United Airlines:

However, Scott Kirby’s penchant for wearing women’s bras and panties is the least of our concerns. The real danger posed by this “woke” propagandist is his obsession with “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” (DEI). In this movement, factors like skin color, gender fluidity, and sexual preference are prioritized over safety, skill, and expertise. Mr. Kirby is a leader of this progressive agenda and could very well be compromising passenger safety in the process.

We’re now faced with yet another alarming “air” incident that unfolded high above the skies of Miami, Florida. An Atlas Air Boeing 747 was literally engulfed in flames mid-flight and looked like some high-octane summer blockbuster movie. The aircraft was seen soaring through the sky with intense flames erupting from it, and the horrific scene was caught on video.

Many people are questioning what the heck is going on with our air travel. And one answer keeps popping up: DEI. The folks in the air travel industry are trading expertise for woke points, and it’s starting to show in some very scary ways. Actually, there’s a strong link between Atlas Air and DEI. First off, it’s part of the company’s mission. Take a look at this:


It’s obvious from that mission statement that this airline prioritizes “diversity” over safety, and quite honestly, these two don’t often align.

And there’s more. Remember Atlas Air from a couple of years ago? One of their “DEI” pilots, Conrad Aska, made a critical error. He hit the wrong button during an approach, freaked out, and ended up steering a massive cargo plane straight into the water.


The National Transportation Safety Board heard testimony Tuesday on the cause of the crash of Atlas Air Flight 3591 on February 23, 2019.

Investigators called the co-pilot who was flying the jet a “train wreck” during training. They say first officer Conrad Jules Aska incorrectly believed the jet was about to stall before pushing it into a fatal nosedive.

“Whoa, my speed, my speed,” Aska said, according to the transcript. “We’re stalling. Stall.”
The cargo jet entered a rapid descent from about 6,000 feet into the marshy bay about 40 miles east of Bush Intercontinental Airport.

In the final minute before impact, pilots were heard saying “Lord, have mercy,” “pull up,” and “Oh, God, Lord, you have my soul.”

Investigators say Aska gave false information to Atlas Air, concealing issues at past employers, calling his training record “terrible.”

“The first officer in this accident deliberately concealed his history of performance deficiencies, which limited Atlas Air’s ability to fully evaluate his aptitude and competency as a pilot,” said NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt.

The report said Aska’s “tendency to respond impulsively and inappropriately when faced with an unexpected event during training scenarios at multiple employers suggest an inability to remain calm during stressful situations.”

“I’m miffed why this pilot was allowed to continue in the cockpit,” NTSB board member Michael Graham said.

As Tucker correctly states, “People will die because of this.”

And if you think this crazy trend is slowing down, guess again. They’re just gearing up. Soon, you’ll have even more mentally ill people holding your life in their shaky hands.

Revolver has been laser-focused on this disturbing DEI trend for a while now. It’s not only infiltrated our airline industry but most other major corporations as well. But let’s be honest: when you’re flying high at 20,000 feet in a metal tube, you want to be damn sure that the crew piloting and tracking your flight are experts in their field, not focused on cross-dressing or Black Lives Matter.

The question now is: as technology advances, why is our airline industry regressing?


The recent accident in Houston is just the latest noteworthy instance in what a major New York Times investigation this summer determined to be “an alarming pattern of safety lapses and near misses in the skies and on the runways in the USA.” According to internal records of the Federal Aviation Agency, the Times reported that these safety lapses and near misses occurred as a “result of human error.” The Times report further revealed that “runway incursions” of the sort described above have nearly doubled, from 987 to 1732, despite the widespread proliferation of advanced technologies.

We no longer focus on excellence; instead, we focus on wokeness.

The aggressive substitution of merit in favor of diversity has led to a so-called competency crisis, jeopardizing not only our ability to generate innovative technology but, in a more dire sense, our ability to simply maintain the proper functioning of various complex systems vital to our existence as a first-world civilization. Despite the superficiality of “diversity” as a matter of rhetoric, the reality of diversity as an ideological, cultural, and legal imperative is not merely cosmetic—far from it.

While a full treatment of this topic would run far outside the scope of this article, we have discussed elsewhere the manner and extent to which the affirmative action regime is embedded deeply into the law, economy, and every major institution in the country.

We highly recommend reading the entire Revolver article. It’s quite an eye-opener, shedding a bright light on the actual forces that are tearing apart our aviation industry. Read it here:

Another reason our transportation’s in a mess? Look no further than the lackluster leadership. When Mayor Pete’s not on his never-ending paternity leave, he seems more interested in swinging carefree through life than tackling the real issues that impact Americans who travel.

Buckle up, America. We’re in for a bumpy ride.
