"Stop hiring useless White males"--Royal Air Farce

(ATA)

The Royal Air Farce decided in 2020-2021 that White males were useless and that they no longer should be recruited.

This decision was clearly based upon the experience during the Battle of Britain, where White males pilots failed to adequately defend the island nation against the Nazi blitz.

It’s good to see that 80 years after this clear lesson that White males suck, the RAF has finally learned its lesson and abandoned the practice of hiring White men to defend their country.

The RAF instructed staff to stop choosing “useless white male pilots” for training courses in a leaked email seen by The Telegraph.

In an email dated Jan 19, 2021, Squadron Leader Andrew Harwin, who worked in the Officer and Aircrew Selection Centre, sent an email to his colleagues, he discussed the boarding process where candidates are chosen to pursue certain training courses, he wrote: “I noted that the boards have recently been predominantly white male heavy.

“If we don’t have enough BAME and female to board then we need to make the decision to pause boarding and seek more BAME and female from the RAF.

“I don’t really need to see loads of useless white male pilots, let’s get as focused as possible, I am more than happy to reduce boarding if needed to have a balanced BAME/female/male board.”

An RAF source told The Telegraph that the “email clearly demonstrates the endemic culture that was created by the senior leadership to chase ridiculous diversity statistics that were patently unachievable”.

“This culture extended to issuing orders that were illegal,” they said.

I wish I could say that this is not typical of what is happening in the West, but of course, we all know that it is. The drive to prove one’s diversity bona fides is so great that basic productivity and competence are being sacrificed to the DEI gods.

What is worth taking note of is not just the action itself, but the way in which it is characterized.

White male pilots are “useless.”

What, exactly, do they mean by that? Are the powers that be in the Royal Air Farce making an observation that White pilots are incapable of flying planes in a manner that is required to carry out the mission of the RAF? Does their race make them bad pilots for some unknown reason?

Of course not. The “use” for which pilots are recruited has nothing to do with actually being warfighters. That is what they mean.

While pilots are not fit for use because the use for which the RAF recruits pilots is to satisfy DEI requirements. The RAF, literally, believes that fighter pilots exist to fill quotas, not fight Great Britain’s wars. That is what they are saying.

One of the recruiting officers–the person in charge of staffing up the pilot ranks–actually resigned in disgust after she blew the whistle on the scheme to drive White men out of the RAF.

In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Air Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston, the outgoing head of the RAF, called Group Captain Nicholl’s resignation a “regrettable” outcome.

“One of the mistakes we made was that those aspirational goals filtered down into people’s personal objectives in-year which they found almost impossible to meet,” he said.

“That put intolerable pressure on them and I’ve apologised to the recruiting and selection organisation.”

He added: “We were doing all we could to tackle this intractable problem, which is the lack of diversity in our service.”

However, RAF sources said Sir Mike’s response was a “slap in the face” for the former Group Captain, who had seemingly lost her job after blowing the whistle on unlawful practices.

They said: “Everything we are told in the RAF is about doing the right thing, but nobody in the organisation has been held accountable.”

While in charge of the RAF, Sir Mike committed to having 40 per cent women and 20 per cent of personnel from ethnic minorities by 2030.

Notice here that the person who was forced out of the RAF was a female Group Captain, who argued that merit, not race or gender should be the driving force in recruiting pilots. The White male Air Chief Marshal who instituted this program remains.

This tells you everything you need to know about the insanity of the current transnational elite. They are so committed to their ridiculous DEI agenda that they will sacrifice their own country’s security in order to achieve their goals.

Take note: these policies, as with so many other explicitly cultural Left policies, are being implemented by a Tory government–the conservative party in Britain. How much worse would it be under Labor?

Vastly.

I am still amazed at how some of the most destructive and tyrannical policies implemented in recent years have been in the Anglosphere. As woke as most European countries are, their leftism and zeal for socialism have actually outstripped the European continent.

It is a bizarre turn of events. The civilization that birthed freedom of speech, thought, and religion has so thoroughly abandoned those principles that they are committing civilizational suicide.

Can it be reversed? It is too early to tell. But we must try. Having been handed the greatest civilization in human history, it is our duty to pass it on to the next generation.
