Globalism is a term mainly used today by the far-right as a propaganda term with which to mark the enemies of the far-right agenda (aka those people who don't think extreme nationalism is a solution to humanities problems). But the term also serves as an inward signal of the far-right: Its second meaning is "Jew". This way, the term connects to the favorite conspiracy theory of the far-right, the Jewish World Domination conspiracy theory
. It is a dog-whistle.
That is also the reason why Soros is the favorite target of far-right organizations, instead of other billionaires. He is a Jew as well as someone who uses his wealth to sponsor liberal groups, which makes him the ultimate boogeyman for the far-right.
This is the reason is why it isn't a strawman to note the obvious implications of the term.

Greed and powerbgrab are not a concept "owned" by any single religion, they speak all languages and spread indiscriminately like a bad case of cancer.
They are also no at all owned by the people you label "globalists" either. Unless you think that people who reject the notion that cooperation between humans is a good thing are immune to greed and lust for power.
A nice example is the "glorious" leader of Hungary, Victor Orban (someone who received a scholarship from Soros foundation BTW). He blames the EU, "globalists" and especially Soros for all problems in existence, while he proceeds to build a large stadium in his little home town
, his buddy from school
(who worked as a gas fitter until recently) is now one of the richest man in Hungary and Orban controls nearly all media organizations in the country, so no one can expose his corruption to the Hungarian people.
But sure, the little university that Soros had in Budapest was the biggest problem for Hungary...

Well aware of the history and carnage.
If you are, that makes me wonder why you think that "the globalists running the EU have done the most damage on that continent". Because I am pretty sure the two world wars that preceded the EU have done the most damage to Europe. And those world wars were motivated mainly by stupid nationalism, which is the main reason why the EU exists in the first place, to ensure that war between Europeans becomes impossible.
So far, it has ensured that none of its members started a war against each other, a pretty rare situation for the war torn continent that is Europe.
