Dems Want to Lower Standards for Female Firefighters

To Democrats, identity politics is more important than life itself, as they prove by attacking physical fitness standards for firefighters in Connecticut:

A law introduced earlier this month in the Connecticut State Assembly would let women skip the Candidate Physical Ability Test, a timed gauntlet used by fire departments across the country. The test, which only 10 to 15 percent of women pass, requires candidates to complete intense physical tasks while wearing a 50 pound vest. It’s designed to simulate the experience of navigating a fire in heavy gear—and to weed out those unable to do so.

It’s not as if there will be no physical requirements at all. Social engineers will only lower standards far enough to get results that prop up their surreal vision of a world where there is no difference between men and women.

The law, introduced by five Democratic lawmakers, would offer women an alternative test based on “revised physical standards,” with the goal of ensuring that “additional female candidates” qualify for firefighter positions, text from the bill states.

As retired New Haven firefighter Leah DiNapoli notes,

“If you can’t handle a 50 pound vest, you’re not going to be able to rescue a child from a burning building.”

Leftists could counter this with one of their favorite slogans: “You can’t make an omelet without breaking some eggs.”

Cultural Marxism is also applied on a racial basis:

In 2003, the New Haven fire department threw out the results of a written exam after none of the African Americans who took it scored high enough for a promotion. [Retired fireman Frank] Ricci, the former union president, who would have been promoted based on his results, sued the department, arguing that he and other non-black firefighters had been denied professional opportunities because of their race. The Supreme Court agreed, ruling 5-4 that New Haven had violated anti-discrimination law.

Rulings like that make Democrats want to pack the Supreme Court.

Equity will be achieved when we are all equally unqualified. Those stuck in burning buildings will be left to their own devices.
