Well, at least they aren’t speaking German. Right?

So the posterity of those brave white men who won the Battle of Britain in 1940 might not be able to join the Royal Air Force (RAF), but at least they aren’t speaking German! [RAF ‘pauses job offers for white men’ to meet ‘impossible’ diversity targets: The alleged move has prompted the head of recruitment for the Royal Air Force (RAF) – herself a senior female officer – to resign in recent days in protest., Sky News, August 16, 2022]:

The RAF has effectively paused making job offers to white male recruits in favour of women and ethnic minorities to meet “impossible” diversity targets, defence sources have claimed.

The alleged move has prompted the head of recruitment for the Royal Air Force (RAF) – herself a senior female officer – to resign in recent days in protest amid concerns that any such restrictions on hiring, however temporary and limited, could undermine the fighting strength of the service, the sources said.

The defence sources accused Air Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston, the head of the RAF, of appearing willing to compromise UK security at a time of growing threats from Russia and China in pursuit of albeit important goals such as improving diversity and inclusion.

One of the defence sources noted how General Sir Patrick Sanders, the head of the army, has likened today’s security challenges to those in the build-up to the Second World War, warning that the UK is facing its “1937 moment”.

“Then you look at the head of the RAF and he’s prepared to break the operational requirement of the air force just to meet diversity [targets],” the source said.

“I think he needs to be hauled up by the Ministry of Defence and told: This is the defence agenda, get on it.”

The recruitment claims prompted a response from Rishi Sunak, one of the two contenders vying to be the UK’s next prime minister.

A spokesperson for the Sunak leadership campaign said: “The only thing that should matter in recruitment is the content of your character, not your sex or the colour of your skin.

“That the Ministry of Defence would allow Britain’s security to potentially be put at risk by a drive for so called ‘diversity’ is not only disgraceful, it is dangerous.”

‘Wokefulness’ or ‘Woefulness’

Successive governments have been challenging all three armed services – the RAF, the army and the Royal Navy – for years to improve their diversity statistics in what has traditionally been a predominantly white, male profession.

It is a goal championed by defence chiefs.

Admiral Sir Tony Radakin, the head of the armed forces, used his first public speech in-post last December to stress the importance of striving for better diversity.

He said this was not “about wokefulness. It is about woefulness. The woefulness of too few women. The woefulness of not reflecting the ethnic, religious and cognitive diversity of our nation.”

The MOD has announced it aims to increase the ratio of female recruits coming into the armed forces in general to 30% by 2030 from around 12%.


The RAF – which was the first of the services to open all roles to women and already has the highest ratio of females – is aiming to go further. It wants the ratio of female air force recruits to hit 40% by the end of the decade – more than double the current level.

The target for ethnic minorities is to reach 20% of all air force recruits within the same timeframe, up from around 10%.

Yet the RAF must also hire enough people in the right trades to meet its “operational inflow requirements” – the number of new personnel needed to ensure the service can carry out the full range of tasks it has been given to help keep the UK and its allies safe.

Not only has the sun set on the British Empire, but it has seemingly set on the British people. In the name of diversity, inclusion and equity.

What’s the defense of a nation if only white men are those capable of performing the task?

  21. Did Admiral Radakin really say diversity requires “cognitive diversity”? Yes, yes he did. Who wants to be in a squadron with the “cognitive diversity” pilots? Who wants a “cognitive diversity” wingman? Who wants to be the weapons officer for a “cognitive diversity” pilot? What’s the requirement for “cognitive diversity” – do you have to fail the cognitive tests that all the other pilots pass?

  22. Silver lining – may reduce the size of the Royal Air Force. England should dramatically reduce it military and get over its empire attitude. Little Britain is the correct idea for a small island off the coast of Europe. They should concentrate on neutrality.

    Good, good. Hopefully by this time next year when they try to force on the planet another stage of the malthusian perestroika, there’s no one left to do it competently.

    Before covid I was like oh no the great replacement + demoralization + dismantling of basic mating and marriage rituals has condemned the western white to this and that. When covid struck though, and the Krauts, the Austrians, the Baltic pygmies all instantly regressed to their archetypes of “your paperz pleez” with insane vax mandates; the french cops decided this is an excellent opportunity to viciously harass people who “wear the mask wrong”, then I was like now hold on.

    These motherfuckers haven’t been replaced enough. Them Germanic bitches act like sadistic lockstep zombie fools at the drop of a hat like they learned nothing in the last hundred years? Their asses need another ten million Nigerians right now, just to make sure they can’t do too much damage next time the crazy hits them.

    Covid was a test and europeans failed it like little bitches. That’s also when I realized the Baltic midgets really are defective germanics with staggering inferiority complexes. Even their neighbors Polack vodka slavs and Ruski vodka slavs had a more humane approach during the mandate madness. The Baltics excluded the refuseniks from society utterly. Useless little cunts only good for being agents for their (post)Anglo masters.

    Whereas it was surprisingly the USA that gave me hope. Half the states not doing the mandate shit. That was inspiring. Europe did not have half its countries not do mandate shit. Only Romania and Bulgaria sort of pretending, going through the motions. Everyone else participated more or less seriously, and the Germanics and Baltics completely and utterly shat over themselves. It’s like fate came over and said “it’s been a century now, let’s see if you’ve learned anything”, and they were all “reeeee, just tell me how to obey and whom to hate, reeee!”

    I’d rather have a bloody Bangladeshi cop to slip a dozen euros to, than a sneering Kraut going all by the book on my ass. Especially when the book is yet another reissue of “how to be a crazy cunt”.

    Except for the “because of slavery” part, we’ve been down that road before. During the final part of the Vietnam War there were numerous instances of US ground units simply saying no, they weren’t going out on dangerous missions or patrols for a cause that was clearly lost. Some would go out of sight of the base camp, not to where they were supposed to go, and safely wait it out there. Others had unofficial truces with the enemy so that the two sides wouldn’t bother each other.

    This wasn’t just the blacks, but instead GIs of every complexion. It’s an era the US military would like to pretend never happened.

    Al Gore was no grunt. He was in the public affairs office of the 20th Engineer Brigade, working as a journalist on the brigade’s newspaper.

    To those unfamiliar with the military, a public affairs office does not put out “news,” but rather it acts as “the voice of the commander.” PAOs disseminate propaganda.

    Working in the brigade’s PAO, Gore would not have been going on patrols and would not have been part of a squad doing so. In fact, engineer units didn’t normally run patrols. Infantry, cavalry, armor, yes; engineers, and especially PAO members, not so much.

    According to Wikipedia, “The brigade provided all non-divisional engineer support in Military Regions III and IV during eleven campaigns. Units cleared more than one-half million acres (2,000 km²) of jungle, paved 500 kilometers of highway, and constructed bridges totaling more than six miles (10 km) in length.”

    Gore likely covered such engineering activities to write articles for the brigade newspaper.

    Well, at least they aren’t speaking German. Right?

    I always have to laugh when people say such things. It’s as if victorious Germans would have bothered to set up language schools across defeated countries to spread their own tongue over the conquered, and as if that’s the worst that could happen.

    Any conqueror attempting to educate Americans on a foreign language would give up in despair. Most have a very poor grasp of English (“they talk ‘murrican”) and would be totally perplexed by another language.

    Can you imagine orcs trying to learn German?

    It’s much more likely that Germans would learn “orc” and behave like it too. In fact, they already have. Here are two music videos from the popular German group Die Fantastischen Vier (The Fantastic Four) doing their best to out-orc the orcs.

    About 20 years ago a teacher in an evening German class showed some of the group’s videos and told my class that, if we could understand the spoken German (German jive) in the videos, we would be able to understand how young Germans now speak.

    Scary thought.

    Keep in mind that Full Metal Jacket was fiction and that most PAO personnel had enough sense to visit combat units back in the base camp and not on patrol. If they’d wanted to go on patrols, they would have volunteered for the infantry and most knew quite well they didn’t want to do that.

    As noted earlier, PAOs don’t report news, but instead disseminate propaganda as “the voice of the commander,” and the base newspaper headline each week would be an award or recognition someone had received (often a unit commander) or a unit had received an award or recognition of some type. At a fighter base to which I was assigned, a couple of planes would crash each year and typically the pilot was killed, but that was never in the base newspaper, although one might read about it in the Stars & Stripes newspaper. Everyone on base knew about it but in the base newspaper it was if it had never happened. The only related news would be a brief mention of a memorial service in the base chapel for captain so-and-so.

    The only “Black Irish” worth a damn died long ago. Philip Lynott founding member of Thin Lizzy. And that’s because he didn’t embrace “blackness” and shove it upon the listener. Instead he wrote and sang about Irish lore and myth. Also, unlike today’s biracial Americans he loved and adored his White mother. Whereas over here, mixed kids end up hating their White parents. Even writing songs and poems to honor her. Imagine a black American “performer” honoring Whites.

I agree that China will have a major control over many African & Middle Eastern countries and resources, but they’ll also be fighting to maintain it thru proxy wars and uncivil rest from the locals, unless they are quelled and replaced early on. From the footage I’ve see, and first hand accounts I’ve heard, the Chinese plan for Africa doesn’t include native Africans.
