The West keeps shoving women into positions of authority, leadership, and power, but women can barely lead toddlers, and biology soon manifests to remind everyone what women’s place actually is. How soon? Two weeks in this case.
Capt. Zoe Kotnik, the first female pilot to head the F-16 Viper demonstration team, was relieved of command Monday.
“Col. Derek O’Malley, 20th Fighter Wing commander, relieved Capt. Zoe Kotnik from command Feb. 11 due to a loss of confidence in her ability to lead and command the Air Combat Command F-16 Viper demonstration team,” said Col. Allen Herritage, director of public affairs at ACC, in a statement. “The Viper demonstration team is working to minimize impacts on scheduled performances and looks forward to inspiring crowds around the country during the upcoming season as soon as a new commander is selected.”
Herritage would not comment further on what led to Kotnik’s removal, citing privacy concerns.
In a statement on Shaw’s Facebook page, O’Malley alluded to “mistakes” on Kotnik’s part, but expressed hope that she will continue to serve in the Air Force.
“We have thousands of airmen across our Air Force serving our country, and not one of them is perfect,” O’Malley said. “As good people, like Capt. Kotnik, make mistakes, I want them to have the opportunity to learn from them without being under public scrutiny and to continue to be a part of this great service. They’ll be better for the experience, and in turn, we’ll be better as an Air Force.”
“In these types of situations, I never forget that we’re dealing with real human beings, that I care deeply about, and that we are charged to take care of,” O’Malley continued. “This will be a difficult time for Capt. Kotnik, but she’s surrounded by wingmen that will help her every step of the way.”
It’s pretty clear that she committed some kind of mistake or offense that would have immediately resulted in a male captain’s discharge but since she’s a woman that enjoyed some social media attention when her leadership was announced, they’re playing the incident down to keep up the illusion that women can lead.
They compared her to Captain Marvel and it backfired horribly. They’re just doing damage control.
Kotnik’s selection garnered a great deal of press and social media attention. The Viper team posted a tweet last month announcing her selection that nodded to the advertising campaign for the Marvel Studios movie “Captain Marvel,” which depicts a superhero who starts out as a female Air Force fighter pilot.

Yeah, chances are she’s also the first pilot relieved from command this soon after assuming it. She barely lasted two weeks.
Kotnik’s first show as part of the Viper team’s 2019 schedule was to be at an air show at Naval Air Station Key West in Florida, on March 30 and 31, according to ACC’s website.
She didn’t even get to her first show. This bitch must have really fucked up.
O’Malley said that Maj. John “Rain” Waters, who was last season’s Viper demo pilot, has resumed command of the team.
As always… men are left to deal with the aftermath of women’s mistakes.
Being bossed around by a slut in the Air Force or Army or any place — especially those with a chain of command — can’t have a positive effect on morale.
If this whore couldn’t even keep her demo team leadership position for two weeks, how are we expected to trust women to fight?
