Consider this a lesson on how leftists seek to silence discussion on any topic. Our friend Jeff Dunetz writes at The Lid that the Huffington Post said the use of the term “globalist” by Mick Mulvaney in reference to parting economic adviser Gary Cohn, is an anti-Semitic code word.
That’s right — anti-Semitic.
It was very obvious that Mick Mulvaney, Trump’s director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) used the term globalist as the opposite of Donald Trump’s “America First” policies. Heck I have used it in that context, but of course, the liberal Trump haters dug up a rare anti-Semitic use to trash the administration.
According to the Huffington Post writers Nina Golgowski and Luke O’Brienwho at times quoted Jacob Sugarman of Alternet who first came up with the Mick Mulvaney lie:

The term “globalist” was used to describe an outgoing Trump administration official during Wednesday’s White House press briefing, raising eyebrows on social media because the term is increasingly used in xenophobic and anti-Semitic contexts.
The word came up when a reporter asked press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders whether a similar candidate will take the place of the outgoing director of President Donald Trump’s National Economic Council, Gary Cohn, who is Jewish.
“He was a noted free trader, a globalist. Will the president seek another globalist, another free trader?” Fox News reporter John Roberts asked. [Note John Roberts works for FNC, so the Huffington Post was trying tto kill two birds with one slander].
Its use also came one day after Mick Mulvaney, director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, used the word “globalist,” in quotations, to describe Cohn in a statement that was posted by his department on Twitter.

Dunetz, who has a whole lot more to say about this, adds:
Here’s the bottom line–whether or not “globalist” is an anti-Semitic code word really doesn’t matter because I guarantee that the only people who connected it to Jews were the two Huffington Post writers, the writer from Alternet, Israel’s far-left newspaper Haaretz and the liberals who made the connection via Twitter as a way to trash the Trump administration.
Isn’t trashing the Trump administration pretty much all the liberal media does anyway?
