1/26/17, "Britain’s Theresa May in U.S.: Islam is Peaceful, Globalism Good, Climate Change a Priority," Breitbart,
"British Prime Minister Theresa May used her speech in Philadelphia to needle the new Trump administration on a number of issues ranging
from globalism to climate change, Islam, and even to defending the
Mrs. May began her speech at the Republican Retreat in Philadelphia
with a brief history of Anglo-American relations, invoking the spirit of
the Founding Fathers of the U.S. as well as expressing gratitude
towards America’s involvement in the World Wars of the 20th century.
But her speech was also littered with politically correct terms, as
well as left and centre-left talking points regarding international
institutions, Islam, and radical Islamic terrorism, the latter of which
she called “Islamist extremism”.
The British premier compared “open, liberal and democratic” societies
in the West versus “closed, coercive” ones. She hailed the United
Nations, praised the World Bank, and called NATO “the cornerstone” of
And Mrs. May also spoke of the necessity for multilateralism in stark
contrast with the line pushed by the White House — which prefers
bilateralism — over recent days. She cited the need to tackle “climate
change” as one of the reasons to back globalist institutions.
She called for the two nations to be “internationalist” and “global”,
though noted “Some of these organisations are in need of reform and
while committing to the destruction of the Islamic State, she failed to
mention the name of the group, choosing instead the term “Daesh” — a
word preferred by politically correct types and most notably popularised by former Secretary of State John Kerry and President Barack Obama.
She went on to describe “radical Islamists”, stopping short of
echoing the phrases used by the new U.S. administration including
“radical Islamic terrorism”.
The British PM stated: “Of course we should always be careful to
distinguish between this extreme and hateful ideology and the peaceful
religion of Islam, and the hundreds of millions of its adherents,
including millions of our own citizens, and those further afield who are
so often the first victims of this ideology’s terror”.
And while Mrs. May hailed the founding principle of “liberty” and
claimed the title of “conservative” to draw parallels between her
beliefs and those of Republican attendees, she is perhaps best known in
the United Kingdom for an unprecedented expansion of the surveillance state and indeed mass migration at historic levels.
Mrs. May was a Remain campaigner during the Brexit referendum, and
also used her speech in Philadelphia to underscore her commitment to
Britain’s foreign aid spending.
And while the British government voted against the State of Israel
in the now infamous UN Security Council vote in December, she stated
that democratic allies like the Jewish state must be protected.
Mrs. May spoke of verification and “policing” of the Iranian nuclear
deal and spoke of the trading relationship between the United Kingdom
and United States.
Curiously, despite Britain’s Brexit vote, Mrs. May said of the
European Union: “We will build a new partnership with our friends in
Europe. We are not turning our back on them, or on the interests and the
values that we share. It remains overwhelmingly in our interests – and
in those of the wider world – that the EU should succeed”."
Added: At least 3 Americans are to this day not allowed to set foot in England having been judged by Ms. May's pathetic government to be a danger to society:
Radio host Michael Savage (since 2009), writers and freedom activists Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer.
Comment: How about making the release of "hostages" Savage, Geller, and Spencer part of any new US deal with the UK?

Hopeless phony UK PM Theresa May recites globalist cliches at US GOP meeting. In the UK she campaigned against Brexit, advanced mass immigration, favors continuing to enrich global CO2 terror profiteers. Today she exemplified deadly political correctness by using word 'Daesh' instead of Islamic State, found it necessary to praise 'the peaceful religion of Islam'. Her gov. voted against Israel in Dec. 2016 UN Security Council
