Much like the Department of Defense and American intelligence agencies, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) under Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has focused on woke politics while neglecting its fundamental duties.
The agency has reportedly been focused on “LGBTQI+ visibility” — with the “positive” representing any residual sexual or gender identities not covered by “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, [and] intersex.”
They also have focused on being more “inclusive” towards drone operators and creating a “safe space” for Hispanic employees.
The agency’s lack of focus on its core mission led to a disaster this week as the agency experienced a mass system failure that led to over 6,000 flight delays in one day.
Buttigieg has both allowed and openly encouraged woke initiatives in agencies that fall under the Department of Transportation.
In June of 2022, he unveiled a $1 billion spending package to build “racial equity” in America’s roads.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has been focused on “LGBTQI+” inclusivity and “gender-neutral” language under President Joe Biden — even as it has struggled to manage the nation’s commercial air traffic.
On Wednesday, the FAA ordered the first nationwide “ground stop” since Sep. 11, 2001, after a computer system failed overnight, grounding thousands of flights and throwing the country’s air traffic into chaos.
It was the second crisis in as many months, after a winter storm snarled air travel during the holiday season. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg blamed Southwest Airlines, whose personnel management system caused company-wide cancelations that accounted for much of the nationwide disruption. But the FAA’s own systems are solely within his purview — and just the latest in many transportation failures on his watch.
Yet the FAA has not been completely passive. It has simply been focused on other things, such as using more “gender-neutral and inclusive” language to describe aviation and the “aerospace community,” as critics noted:
