If you find yourself sitting on the ground, looking up at the skies, scratching your head, and wondering why our airline industry seems to be crashing and burning, you’re definitely not alone. Plenty of Americans are gazing upward, asking themselves what the heck is going wrong with our once well-respected aviation industry. These days, under the so-called leadership of Mayor Pete and the Biden regime, we’re seeing a slew of equipment failures, near-misses, confused employees, and planes that seem to be falling apart at the seams.

Gee, wonder why?

These days, the US aviation industry is like watching a disaster movie, but this is no film—it’s real life, and it’s unfolding right above us.
The latest “movie disaster” unfolded on the runway in the DC Swamp. Two planes, one from Jet Blue and the other from Southwest, nearly collided. You could hear the panic crackling through the air traffic control tower as they scrambled to handle yet another near-miss moment.

Sadly, the situation in the control tower reflects this diversity emphasis, but not in the way we’d hope. The chaos up there sounds like it comes from a diverse group, alright—at least their panic is inclusive. The real trouble seems to circle right back to the left’s DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) agenda, which prioritizes charity over excellence. This shift in focus is hitting us where it hurts, turning our air traffic control towers into scenes from the movie “Airplane!” And that’s no joke for anyone who’s up in the air. This should scare the heck out of every single American traveler.

At this point, if you’re not concerned, you’re not paying attention.

The Unz Review:

There hasn’t been a fatal commercial airline accident in the US since 2009. We’re due for one. We’re due for a lot. The New York Times has published the results of its own study that found 300 near-collisions in the most recent year for which there were data.
Over the last 10 years, that number has more than doubled. Incompetent air traffic controllers are a big part of the problem.

Controllers tell pilots which runways to use, when to take off and land, and where to fly. If a controller gets it wrong, he can tell two planes to smash into each other, like a case from New Orleans this summer.

A controller told the green plane coming in from the left to land on the same runway from which the purple plane was about to take off.

The green plane aborted the landing and just avoided crashing into the purple plane.

In July, a controller told an Allegiant Air Flight cruising at 23,000 feet to turn right into the path of another plane.

The pilot had to make such a violent turn than a flight attendant fell and was injured so badly, the pilot had to land so she could get medical treatment. Passengers on board were praying and crying.

Ted Cruz thinks he knows what’s happening in the not-so-friendly skies. It’s a DEI disaster, where inexperienced people are incapable of making the quality, quick decisions needed to safely and properly operate within our airline industry.

Things have gotten so bad that even the New York Times is worried about our incompetent air traffic controllers. However, they’re not exactly spilling the beans on why there’s such an influx of them. Unfortunately, that’s the typical reaction from our shameless regime-run media.

Revolver has been on top of this issue for a while now, and we’re not shy about telling you what’s really going on. Ted Cruz hit the nail on the head—much of the problem in the aviation industry comes from this overwhelming focus on “DEI.” We’re seeing hiring practices that push skin color, gender fluidity, and sexual orientation over actual ability and competence. Obviously, this approach leads to a drop in standards, and over time, that kind of incompetence comes back to bite us.


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.

A follow-up report by the Times revealed that Austin’s airport alone has experienced so many close calls as a result of air traffic controller error that a pilot proclaimed, “They’re trying to kill us in Austin.” One such incident involved an air traffic controller clearing a FedEx cargo plane to land on a runway just as a Southwest Airlines jet was set to take off on the same runway. The air traffic controller in question said the Southwest jet would take off before the FedEx plane got too close, though the two planes ended up just seconds from colliding, with the FedEx plane skimming less than 100 feet over the Southwest jet, whose 128 passengers had no clue how narrowly they just escaped death.

This piece dives deep into the nitty-gritty, examining how DEI and other factors are turning our airline industry into a dangerous crapshoot. It’s a revealing look at the risks these policies are posing to air safety and efficiency.

The sad truth is that everyone in aviation saw this coming, but instead of pulling back, they doubled down and pushed even harder. It seems they don’t really care if you’re in danger at 33,000 feet—it’s a small price to pay to keep “diversity” on the front burner. It’s disheartening to think that such risks are deemed acceptable in the pursuit of certain agendas, with little regard for the real-world consequences.
