The UK...where I've had the pleasure of living-in for a time...is full of globalist shills that want the same fascist agenda you subscribe to. Some of them even speak English.

I dont think you understand the definition of fascist.

Feel free to provide any accepted definition that implies fascists are pro-immigration

Masters ... lol.  Projection?

 

Whatever you want to call them. I know word salads are important when spreading propaganda.

Yup....if the USA isn't joining us, we should really ask ourselves why rather than saying "Orange Man Bad" and signing on the dotted line.

Not just the U.S., Austria, Italy, Hungary https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/20/australia/united-nations-migration-pact-intl/index.html   not sure about Japan, wonder if they will agree to it.

and yet the EU can criticize of course because it falls in with their open borders policy

There's no way Japan will commit seppuku over this wee plan. They've got some brains.

Nothing will prevent Trudeau's enthusiastic support for such a commitment. But commitments can be broken by the next government. The current amount is already damaging support for immigration and the refugee system, with growing majorities opposing them. And if the amount of refugees coming into Canada increases significantly his government will be in real trouble. Unfortunately, that likely won't happen until AFTER the coming election, which he is likely to win.

US: Trump

Austria: The current government of Austria is a coalition government formed by the center-right Austrian People's Party (ÖVP) and the far-right Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ).

Italy: Unstable coalition gov't where one of the major (and fastest rising) parties is Lega Nord which has: embraced Italian nationalism and emphasised Euroscepticism, opposition to immigration and other "populist" policies while forming an alliance with right-wing populist parties such as France's National Front, the Netherlands' Party for Freedom and the Freedom Party of Austria at the European level. 

Hungary: Fidesz – Hungarian Civic Alliance (Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈfidɛs]; in full, Hungarian: Fidesz – Magyar Polgári Szövetség) is a national-conservative[3][4][5] and right-wing populist[5][4][9] political party in Hungary. It has dominated Hungarian politics on the national and local level since its landslide victory in the 2010 national elections

So, opposition by right-wing populist governments (read anti-immigrant) and possibly Japan (historically anti-immigration)

Orange man bad! So we'll do the exact opposite of the USA.

That'll show 'em.

Not good or bad.  One of the most significant factors in Trump getting elected was his anti-immigrant rhetoric.  So it stands to reason he wouldn't sign a document protective of their rights regardless; his opposition is of minimal use in judging its actual utility

No shit.

No sane country would hand over their border to the UN. 

That you think it's a good idea is immaterial.

More you claiming shit is chocolate.

In just a few posts on this topic you have "accidentally" misdefined a charged term, and done little but throw out red herrings and ad hominems. Sad.

Usually one just says "she turned me into a newt!"

Same message, fewer words.

I assume you think those who would limit free expression regarding views on immigrants and migration are on some kind of witch hunt?

Assumes they are familiar with the sketch. If I could assume that, I would have abbreviated it to "if she weighs the same as a duck..."

The sketch pokes fun at people using preconceived notions, falsly dressing up the facts, and and using faulty logic in coming to conclusions.  I thought it fit.

Free expression regarding immigration is protected, as it should be. Hate speech regarding immigrants is not, and should not be.  Nothing in this non-binding UN pact changes that

-Are you the poet?

-Yes...

-I used to admire your poetry.

-Thank-you.

-I shouldn't admire it now. I should find it absurdly personal. Don't you agree? Feelings, insights, affections...it's suddenly trivial now. You don't agree. You're wrong. The personal life is dead in Russia. History has killed it. I can see how you might hate me...
