Achtung! Lefties accuse CPAC of using Nazi symbol at conference

In today’s extreme political rhetoric, anyone who even likes President Trump and his agenda is prone to be called a Nazi.

A prominent MSNBC host likened the four years of his administration to a Nazi “attack on truth,” and Israel demanded an apology after a CNN anchor compared Trump to Nazis. An Arizona elections official said Trump was “on the side of the freaking Nazis.”

Now, the left sees the Third Reich in the stage upon which Trump spoke Sunday.

The Daily Beans Podcast asked, “Has anyone else noticed the shape of the CPAC stage is the Odal Run/SS insignia?”

So began the “stage design conspiracy,” said American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp, whose organization put on the Conservative Political Action Conference.

He called the charge “outrageous and slanderous.”

“We have a long standing commitment to the Jewish community,” he said. “Cancel culture extremists must address antisemitism within their own ranks. CPAC proudly stands with our Jewish allies, including those speaking from this stage.”

Business Insider reported the stage resembled a Nordic rune that appeared on Nazi uniforms.

But it is also used in non-extremist contexts as well, the report said.

“Runic alphabets predate the modern Roman alphabet and were used widely across Europe,” Business Insider said. “They were appropriated by white supremacists due to the use of runes by Nazi Germany.”

Officials for Hyatt Hotels Corporation, which hosted CPAC in Orlando, Florida, said they abhor hate symbols as counter to their values.

“We take the concern raised about the prospect of symbols of hate being included in the stage design at CPAC 2021 very seriously as all such symbols are abhorrent and unequivocally counter to our values as a company,” the company said in a statement.

The hotel said the ACU set up the stages.
