    ‘Matt Schlapp, the head of the American Conservative Union who organizes the Conservative Political Action Conference, is pushing back against those who said that the stage for the event that is taking place in Orlando is eerily reminiscent to a Nazi symbol. “Stage design conspiracies are outrageous and slanderous,” Schlapp tweeted. He went on to say that “CPAC proudly stands with our Jewish allies.”’ [source]

    After several dozen similar “incidents” with the trump administration promoting apparel that used Nazi familiar iconography or symbolism this looks suspicious. Could have been a simple mistake I guess. Will any of the people that pushed conspiracy of Democrats not having enough American flags on stage see the oddity of this?

    It is a very odd design for a stage

    Wow... more CPAC hate.

    I think Democrats are scared of what Trump is going to say

    So their defense is this is the “Freudian slip” ?

    Think about that for 10 seconds.

    After the Blatant Attempt (by CPAC) to have Trump spew Stephen Miller's Imbecilic Propaganda Rant on a stage INTENTIONALLY designed to evoke Nazi.Imagery...

    ...Trump must've been heartbroken when he was informed that Leni Riefenstahl died childless.

    In a world where conservatives call THIS a "terrorist fist bump," is this headline really surprising?

    Desperation on the left. Who in the heck would know what an "Odal Rune" is if you asked them?

    These left-wing conspiracy theorists manage to "out-Q" even the Q-Anon nonsense. LOL

    The whole OK thing is meant to be a way to attack any white person they don't like for being racist.

    I know. Because only White Supremacists ever touch their index finger to their thumb. LOL

    In all fairness, some folks on the right started intentionally posing with "Okay" gestures after the left conspiracy theorists decided it was "Racist secret hand symbol". Sometimes trolling the left to "own them" is amusing to people on the right. :p

    The ok sign being racist was started on one of the 4chan boards just to “make fun of liberals”. When actual white supremacists started doing it the meaning changed. I do agree the whole thing is silly and was created out of an attempt to troll

    To the OP. Why are there so many familiar pieces of Nazi iconography around some circles of the right?

    You have to admit that shape looks... similar...

    Yes, many of the symbols used by the Nazi Party stole them from religions and messages of peace. Do you think that is where they got the image in the OP from?

    This is funny, and it typifies the radical Left's mania with finding "Nazi-stuff" in anything associated with right-wing Conservatism.

    For one thing, the collar-patch displayed on that LARGE image you posted simply did not (NOT) exist as organizational insignia on any uniform of the Schutzstaffel ( upload_2021-2-28_10-19-47.png ). Your big 'splash' is nothing but a poorly mashed-up fabrication.

    Next, your "Odal Rune" revelation, which you believe is shown in the layout of the stage, is UPSIDE-DOWN! What self-respecting "Nazi" would do such a thing...?! :eekeyes:

    In order to vilify someone convincingly, first you need to know something about them, or else you just make yourself look silly....

    ....and now that isn't enough for left-wing conspiracy theorists.

    Now they "see" Nazi floor plans at CPAC!!!

    You just can't make this stuff up! Well, they can. :roflol:

    LOL! No sht. The difference is that this nazi symbolism is very explicit. It isn't like a fist bump that everyone does. And it doesn't look sort of like the nazi symbol. It IS the nazi symbol.

    You know how the old saying goes where a liar thinks everyone else is a liar and a thief thinks everyone else is a thief? Carried out to the end a racist thinks everyone else is a racist and a Nazi thinks everyone else is a Nazi.
