TUCKER Carlson has ripped into United Airlines for announcing their new “diversity” policy tonight.
The Fox News pundit turned his attention to the airline after the company announced that 50percent of its pilots will be women or people of color on Wednesday night.
“OK, but why exactly should we care about those numbers? An airline pilots job is to land the plane safely,” Carlson said, adding that a pilots only job was “not killing people.”
HIs comments came after United announced on Tuesday that “our flight deck should reflect the diverse group of people on board our planes every day.”
“That’s why we plan for 50% of the 5,000 pilots we train in the next decade to be women or people of color,” the airline tweeted.
But Carlson noted that as a passenger, he doesn’t care if the pilot was a “black women, a Malaysian muslim or white a man from Alabama” so long as they were the best person for the job – “the only standard that matters.”
Carlson described the company’s announcement as a “racial attack” and claimed that the “logic of identity politics” was a “diseased way of thinking.”
