Daily Wire host Matt Walsh posted a thread on X on Wednesday that featured internal footage of Federal Aviation Administration officials “workshopping a plan to reduce the number of white males in aviation.”

The footage obtained by Walsh shows a video conference from April 2022 where acting Deputy Chief Operating Officer Angela McCullough argued for more airline workers to go “from ramp to cockpit,” complaining that Flight Operations is “white-male dominated.” McCullough then argued that the agency needs to “get a little uncomfortable” and “talk about what the future could look like.”

David Wil Riggins, the FAA’s vice president of Flight Program Operations, responded to McCullough’s comments, saying, “That’s great, honestly. Those are some words that we really need to spend some time digging through and thinking about.”

“This footage, which is from April of 2022, is a sign of a much larger problem,” Walsh said in his post unraveling the FAA meeting. “Over the past few weeks, I’ve heard from several members of the aviation industry who tell me that DEI is endangering the public and distracting them from their work.”

Walsh said that this radical DEI-centered thinking has already affected airline pilots, some of whom are allegedly being prioritized for their gender identity.

“A second source – a pilot I’ve confirmed works at Delta – tells me that Delta has recently promoted a trans-identifying pilot who repeatedly received bad reviews from captains,” the Daily Wire host said. “According to the source, this pilot ‘would likely not have’ survived probation if he weren’t trans.”

“For example, the source notes that Delta routinely makes exceptions for trans-identifying pilots concerning grooming and behavioral standards. Internally, Delta has even published a lengthy guide for pilots who believe they were born in the wrong body,” Walsh continued.

Another source told Walsh that he is inundated with DEI proposals such as making “gender inclusive seatbelts” even though his job is to design advanced military systems.


“We have affirmation groups, protections, and heritage months for every single type of person except for white men,” the source said. “If I don’t have at least two DEI/ESG meetings or trainings per week on my calendar then the all-hands/town hall meetings have some sort of DEI baked into the agenda.”

Walsh said other sources have sent him info about an FAA program called “eFast” which prioritizes “Indian Tribal Owned corporations” and “Socially and Economically Disadvantaged Businesses” for grant funding worth billions of dollars. According to the FAA’s Master Order Agreement for eFAST, FAA contracts worth $10,000 to $150,000 are “automatically reserved exclusively” for “Socially and Economically Disadvantaged Businesses.”

“It’s only a matter of time until this combination of incompetence and anti-white discrimination leads to a major air disaster,” Walsh added. “The aviation industry needs a completely new mandate — one that’s focused solely on safety — before a lot of people die.”
