Actually, joking aside... This term sounds like it could be something offensive. Bernie, Adam, etc - is this something with an association I should be aware of? I didn't find anything immediate on googling, but want to check.

Usually they say "Globalist". Globalist is a codeword for Jew, though.

I was just about to read that, I just read the wikipedia article. Seems like another thorny term, one that has bigoted uses, but also has legitimate uses when talking about actual globe-spanning ideologies.

Something is code because it can have two different messages: one for people that know the code and one for people that don't know the code. The purpose of being aware of coded language like this is so when you see it you can make a judgment call based on the context to determine if it is being used as code or can be taken at face value. When we're having a discussion about free trade agreements on the AO and someone calls some way of thinking "globalist" they're almost assuredly not being anti-Semitic unless that specific poster has a history of flirting with anti-Semitism, but when someone says "globalists" want to commit white genocide with the "great replacement", you can be pretty sure of what they mean.
