Carla Sands, the United States ambassador to Denmark, wouldn't allow a Trump critic speak at their own conference. Denmark was outraged, of course, and cancelled the event. It seems childish to me not to allow a difference of opinion as to the way forward for NATO. Someone must be insecure.

The United States ambassador to Denmark barred an American NATO expert critical of President Trump from speaking at an international conference hosted by the American embassy and Denmark, prompting the event’s cancellation, organizers said.

The expert, Stanley R. Sloan, was scheduled to give a keynote speech at the conference, which was celebrating the 70th anniversary of NATO, on Tuesday.

Mr. Sloan, a visiting scholar at Middlebury College in Vermont, a fellow at the Atlantic Council and a former analyst for the Central Intelligence Agency, planned to speak about the future of trans-Atlantic relations.

One day before he was set to leave for Copenhagen, Mr. Sloan was informed that the United States Embassy in Copenhagen had vetoed his participation because of his previous criticisms of President Trump, Mr. Sloan said on Facebook on Saturday.

Carla Sands, the United States ambassador to Denmark, did not want Mr. Sloan to participate, and the Danish Atlantic Council “had no other option” than to revoke his invitation to speak, Lars Bangert Struwe, the secretary general of the council, said in a statement.

Mr. Sloan said the decision had left him “stunned and concerned about our country.”

On Sunday morning, Mr. Struwe canceled the NATO conference.

“After serious consideration, we have decided not to proceed with the conference,” he said on Twitter. “The progress of the process has become too problematic; and therefore, we cannot participate in the conference, let alone ask our speakers to participate.”

From a Danish point of view, the decision to bar Mr. Sloan would turn the conference’s focus to internal American politics and away from the future of NATO, Mr. Struwe said in an interview on Sunday. There were 12 people scheduled to speak, and about 1000 attendees were expected, he said.

“We have all the time known that Mr. Sloan has a critical approach towards President Donald Trump,” Mr. Struwe said in the statement. “That is no secret, especially when following his Twitter and Facebook profile. We have, however, never doubted that Mr. Sloan at our conference would deliver an unpolitical and objective lecture.”

In his book, “Defense of the West,” published in 2016, Mr. Sloan discussed the impact that the Trump administration could have on the deterioration of trans-Atlantic relations, given its questionable support for NATO, its relationship with Russia and its response to threats from the Islamic State.

The United States Embassy in Denmark in a series of tweets on Sunday said Mr. Sloan had been added to the program at the last minute — without the same joint decision-making used in recruiting the other speakers.

The event’s cancellation was “unfortunate,” the embassy said, as it would have provided speakers and attendees an opportunity to exchange views and strengthen NATO for the future.

Time to pull out of NATO. Let them support their own defense for once. That’ll wipe the smirks right off their faces.

 

Every post you poop out onto the forum inevitably brings (at least) two words to mind, DeeplyInsane.......

 

IGNORANT and INSANE

 

......and your moronic dismissal of America's long time traditional allies and friends in NATO, just because they laugh at the bloviating orange clown, adds the words SEVERELY RETARDED to the mix.

 

What do you have....like 65 IQ, or maybe lower?

Not only should we pull out, like your dad clearly should have done with your mom? 
 

We should sue for the trillions we’ve spent protecting those ungrateful little bitches.

Poor Danes.

 

Looks like THEY cancelled their little bitch and gripe session, and it didn't have a damn thing to do with PRESIDENT Trump.

 

What you SCHITSTAINS fail to understand is that the PRESIDENT, no matter who he is, GETS TO SET POLICY OF EVERY DEPARTMENT AND BUREAUCRACY!!


IF those in positions there DON'T LIKE THE DIRECTION, either keep your yapper shut and do your job, or QUIT AND MOVE ON!!!

 

Looks like this Sloan SCHITSTAIN is the one who FAILED TO KEEP HIS YAPPER SHUT, so the Administration MOVED ON FROM HIS RANCOR AND HATE!!


Sucks for you, huh, MORONS??
