FDNY: PC Brings Shame to a Great Name

FDNY ‘babying’ cadet who can’t pass fitness tests | New York Post

She walked through her running tests and got winded climbing stairs, yet a physically unfit female FDNY probie was still allowed out in the field like a normal graduate — and given a year to pass, The Post has learned.

“She’s literally the most pathetic specimen of physical fitness I’ve ever seen,” fumed an academy classmate of Choeurlyne Doirin, 39, who was given a uniform and a “light-duty” assignment even though she did not graduate on June 2 with the other 286 cadets.

I devoutly hope that the apostles of murderous political correctness who allowed this travesty to pretend she’s a “firefighter” find their own lives depending on her skill, strength, and endurance.


About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Undoubtedly, of course, that will not happen, except by purest accident – and likely not even then. The “administrative” pusillanimous pustules who pathetically order this kind of preferential treatment would never hazard themselves in any kind of on-the-job situation where they might need to depend on the dubious (at best) “physical skills” of any of the resulting “firefighters.”

    Instead, Ms. Doirin will go on drawing full wages and bennies (which are pretty good, even for “probies” on light-duty assignment – it’s the FDNY, after all), taking up a slot that – if selection for training and service was (properly) based on actual mental and physical merit, instead of (clearly) biased in favor of PC considerations like minority status and gender “equality” – would (and should) be filled by someone (likely, but not necessarily, male) stronger, much more physically-fit, probably both bigger and younger, and certainly far more capable of actually doing the job, and doing it right.

    Eventually – who knows? – maybe she’ll actually be able to do that mile-and-a-half in 12 minutes or less* – she claims an injury during earlier training caused her not to complete the qualification. I don’t think I’d count on it, though – she’s already pretty close to being “over the hill” age-wise (she’s 39 now, and for a beginner rank-and-file firefighter, that’s up there, I think), so getting into acceptable physical shape is going to be tough, if not beyond her. I don’t think I’d want to count on her to help out in a life’s-on-the-line situation in a fire, for sure.

    (* I’m nearly twice her age, at 71+, and although I haven’t done any running much over a hundred yards or so in the past couple of decades, I’m pretty sure that, given the 18 weeks of training time she had before that qualification attempt, I could manage that kind of a jog – ’cause jog it is, folks. That’s an eight-minute-mile pace, sustained for only a mile and a half – not much above a fast walk – and they apparently do it in gym clothes.)
