The Patrick Madrid Show: January 17, 2024 – Hour 3

Patrick Madrid discusses the controversy surrounding United Airlines’ diversity initiatives and its potential impact on airline safety. He shares insights and commentary on the company’s focus on diversity quotas, the implications for hiring pilots based on diversity rather than qualifications, and the risks associated with prioritizing diversity over safety. This thought-provoking episode also explores the potential consequences of prioritizing diversity over competence in crucial roles, and its overarching impact on public safety.

  • United Airlines CEO (and drag queen) Scott Kirby is pushing drag and DEI on staff (00:59)
  • Patrick shares some recent standup comedy from Rob Schneider about what’s happening at United Airlines
  • Michelle – Thank you, Patrick, for bringing this to our attention
  • George – I’ve been a pilot of 43 years and they are having us retire in our 60s for no other reason than age, which doesn’t make sense to me. (28:35)
  • Vic – From my experience, affirmative action does work but you must have the proper training. Black people don’t get training, so they need more help getting it. (37:40)
  • Grizzy – My wife was a pilot for United Airlines. She had to qualify back then and she did the same thing as the men pilots. It was based on ability, not gender.
  • Joseph – I am a retired airline pilot. Affirmative action is alive in the airline industry, unfortunately.
