Legacy Media Argues that “Globalist” is an Antisemitic Slur that Should be Banned


    In Britain, the term ‘globalist’ has been debated, with some of the legacy media and social media arguing that the use of the word to describe the preference of a super state over state political ideology is actually a racist term against Jewish people.

    Many, like Brexit chief Nigel Fage, have described the installation of former Goldman Sachs banker and World Economic Forum (WEF) Acolyte Rishi Sunaka as the new prime minister as a “globalist coup,” while some left-wingers have attempted to make even the word “globalist” an off-limits slur and claim that it's antisemitic.

    Recently, Nigel Farage tweeted: “Jeremy Hunt is now running the country. This is a globalist coup.” Mr. Farage continued to make similar remarks following the election of Grant Shapps as Home Secretary.

    The comments were denounced by Jewish groups, despite the fact Mr. Hunt was not Jewish but belongs to the Church of England. Mr. Shapps is a member of an ethnically Jewish family.

    In a letter to the editor, criticising the usage of the word, Marie van der Zyl President of the Board of Deputies of British Jews said: “Antisemitism experts such as the Anti Defamation League identify ‘globalist’ as a common antisemitic trope based on conspiracy theories about international Jewish power. Politicians should avoid using the term, particularly when referring specifically to Jewish individuals.”

    The language dispute reached a peak on Sunday, when a listener on LBC radio station was in agreement with Mr Farage's comments in the description of Sunak as a “globalist” who “doesn't seem to love England.”

    In response to this comment, LBC host Sangita Myska, formerly of the BBC, admonished the caller by telling him: “As we continue this conversation, please don’t use the phrase globalist again because many of my Jewish listeners will find that incredibly offensive because it has also been used, at times, as a racist put down to the Jewish community.”

    “That's not true,” the listener replied. “If I meant Jewish, I'd say Jewish.”

    Speaking about the exchange, Mr Farage who was once hosting for LBC, said: “Words being banned by mainstream media, this is not good”.

    Mr. Farage also shared the Oxford English Dictionary definition of globalism, which reads: “The belief that events in one country affect those in all other countries, and that economic and foreign policy should benefit the world as a whole instead of individual countries.”

    Anglican deacon and GB News host Calvin Robinson also came against the media's policing of languages by writing on social media sites: “Be wary of anyone who hears ‘globalist’ and thinks ‘THE JEWS!’

    “As ever, they are the very thing they accuse us of. A globalist is a politician who operates on an international perspective, rather than a local/national perspective. It’s only a slur in the mind of antisemitics.”

    Political analyst and Spiked! columnist, Ben Pile, noted that the roots of the anti-globalist movement were left-wing and he emphasized the anti-globalist protests that took place against the World Trade Organization (WTO) like the anti-capitalist “Battle of Seattle” of 1999, in which anarchists from the black bloc fought throughout in the city, destroying businesses as they went. It was estimated that Seattle firms lost about 20 million dollars in profits and property damage during the demonstrations.

    Pile added that the BBC has previously described the movement such: “The anti-globalisation movement is made up of a variety of causes, including environmentalism, debt forgiveness, animal rights, the protection of children, anarchism and anti-capitalism.”

    “Most of the movement’s adherents believe that globalisation leads to exploitation of the world’s poor, workers and the environment.”

    Despite its roots being left-wing, it has evolved into a major phrase that is used by populists on the right and by nationalists like Former President Donald Trump and Brexit leader Nigel Farage to differentiate themselves in their political views from corporatists and internationalist groups on the right and left that support institutions like that of European Union and the World Economic Forum in contrast to those who favor smaller-scale focus for government.
