Boeing communications chief Niel Golightly just quit his job because an employee complained that 33 years ago, he had written that he was against women in combat.
According to this article from Reuters, in a 1987 article, Golightly had written:
“At issue is not whether women can fire M-60s, dogfight MiGs, or drive tanks. Introducing women into combat would destroy the exclusively male intangibles of war fighting and the feminine images of what men fight for – peace, home, family.”
33 years after Golightly’s article was published, a Boeing employee complained about the above quote.
Golightly responded by resigning.
This is beyond insane.
Everyone says things that someone somewhere might someday complain about. By the above logic, no one should ever have any job ever.
I wonder how radical leftists are going to square their current “cancel culture” with their current promise of a guaranteed job that is being promised as part of their Green New Deal.
maybe it’s time ALL white males walk off the job for a month and see how much we’re missed.
Bookmark under more insanity.
Any different than the mofos wanting to go back 200 plus years to cancel a nation? /s
Boeing had a great pension plan and if this fellow has 33 years, it was a very prude decision to get the hell out of this liberal hell and enjoy retirement.
He’ll be able to volunteer for the sure to come firing squads and guillotines for ALL politicially correct almost humans following the sure to come CW-II. Hell, the volunteer line will be thousands of miles long.
May they suffer.
Stop paying taxes, max out your exemptions.
I am against women in combat unless they’re lesbians.
I know a number of Intel upper level managers who decided to retire vs embracing “mandated diversity” when it was pushed back in 2013 by Obama.
One was 50% Japanese.
Come on! 33 years ago. He’s retirement age and going out with a statement. He’s no General Stinglaub.
His name fits.
And when little Tommy kissed little Sally on the playground when they were both five would be charged as a pedophile today when he’s sixty.
I was wondering if he really resigned or was asked to resign. But considering he had a pension at state, I can see why he might just want to bail, regardless of the merits of the complaint.
Kind of pathetic that this guy didn’t have the testicular fortitude to stick it out in his job. Quitting your job over something you said/wrote decades ago and which is true is the reason cancel culture works. Go on the offensive and relish in the fact that you piss off leftists. They are morons and tell them straight to their progressive faces that you don’t give damn.
H-1Bs and illegals will step up...
I am against women in combat unless theyre lesbians.
Rush Limbaugh was onto something....
maybe its time ALL white males walk off the job for a month and see
how much were missed.
They would be simply ecstatic that their hate managed to cause so much
upheaval, and redouble their hatred until their end.
They why WE must stand up once in a while and pull all of the COMMIE
Karens and Chads back from the brink of the abyss, before they drag
us ALL in to it.
Thats what WWG1WGA is about, btw.
Why didn’t he just say “kiss my grits”, etc?
Prudent, not prude. :)
He knows there is much worse waiting to be found. But once he retires, the horde will move on to new victims.
Weak-kneed white guilt at its worst: A Boeing executive....
