The White House just made one order that is threatening the lives of Americans

Biden will accomplish his agenda by any means necessary. It doesn’t matter who he has to hurt.

And now he just made one order that is threatening the lives of Americans.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is actively recruiting individuals with “severe intellectual” disabilities, psychiatric disorders, and other mental and physical conditions as part of a diversity and inclusion employment campaign announced 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,” according to the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) website.

“They include hearing, vision, missing extremities, partial paralysis, complete paralysis, epilepsy, severe intellectual disability, psychiatric disability and dwarfism.”

The effort is part of the FAA’s “Diversity and Inclusion” employment strategy, which states that “diversity is integral to achieving the FAA’s mission of ensuring safe and efficient travel across our nation and beyond.”

The FAA’s website states that the agency’s diversity hiring rules were last modified on March 23, 2022.

The FAA, which is managed by Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s Department of Transportation, is a government body tasked with regulating civil aviation. It employs approximately 45,000 people.

The FAA and the airline industry have come under intense scrutiny in recent days after a plug door on a Boeing 737 Max 9 blew out during an Alaska Airlines flight on January 5. Following the incident, the FAA grounded all 737 MAX 9 planes and conducted “extensive inspection” and repair work.

The FAA also stated that it would increase its control of Boeing in the aftermath of the disaster, including investigating Boeing’s 737 Max 9 airliner production line and companies that supply parts to the airline manufacturer.

Following the event, social media users and public figures said that airlines’ and manufacturers’ emphasis on diversity, equality, and inclusion (DEI) policies had made flying less safe.

“Do you want to fly in an airplane where they prioritized DEI hiring over your safety?” tech mogul Elon Musk asked on X last week. “That is actually happening.”

“The DEI Rot In The Airline Industry Is Way Worse Than You Think,” Daily Wire commentator Matt Walsh wrote in an op-ed piece last week.

Critics of such criticism have pushed back against the idea that promoting DEI has made travel less safe, with civil rights groups condemning Musk, for example, for the “abhorrent and pathetic” tweet.

According to the FAA’s website, individuals with “severe” mental and physical disabilities are the most underrepresented group in the federal workforce.

“Because diversity is so critical, FAA actively supports and engages in a variety of associations, programs, coalitions and initiatives to support and accommodate employees from diverse communities and backgrounds. Our people are our strength, and we take great care in investing in and valuing them as such,” the FAA reads.

When contacted for comment on the project, including what responsibilities persons with disabilities will play, the FAA told Fox News Digital that the agency diligently searches for and assesses competent candidates “from as many sources as possible” for a variety of occupations.

“The FAA employs tens of thousands of people for a wide range of positions, from administrative roles to oversight and execution of critical safety functions. Like many large employers, the agency proactively seeks qualified candidates from as many sources as possible, all of whom must meet rigorous qualifications that of course will vary by position,” the FAA said.

Dr. Stanley Goldfarb, chair of Do No Harm – a group of health care professionals, medical students, and policymakers working to “protect health care from a radical, divisive, and discriminatory ideology” – told Fox News Digital that the aviation industry, like the medical field, has an obligation to protect its passengers.

“The aviation industry has a responsibility for traveler safety just as the health care industry has a responsibility for patient safety. These responsibilities outweigh other factors when considering applicants to work in those fields. People with disabilities who can successfully complete the task should never face discrimination,” said Goldfarb, a retired professor and the former associate dean for curriculum at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

“Unfortunately,” Goldfarb said, identity politics is “creating opportunities for so-called oppressed groups by lowering standards for entry into those fields and thereby endangering the safety of those which it’s designed to serve. Some endeavors simply do not lend themselves to identity politics,” he added.
