CPAC's stage is made in the style of the Nazi Odal Rune sign
Social media is booming after thousands of viewers have compared the stage of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to the symbol of Nazi soldiers. The head of the American Conservative Union Matt Schlapp strongly denies the similarity and claims that their organization is an ally of the Jews.
“Stage design conspiracies are outrageous and slanderous,” Schlapp tweeted. “CPAC proudly stands with our Jewish allies, including those speaking from this stage.”
Stage design conspiracies are outrageous and slanderous. We have a long standing commitment to the Jewish community. Cancel culture extremists must address antisemitism within their own ranks. CPAC proudly stands with our Jewish allies, including those speaking from this stage.— Matt Schlapp (@mschlapp) February 27, 2021
Now, conspiracy theorists see Nazi symbolism everywhere. This is no coincidence, since many of the White Supremacists are predominantly neo-Nazis, whose ideology includes worship of Hitler.

Neo-Nazis have been using the Odal Rune sign in place of the swastika for several years.— Kimberley Johnson (@AuthorKimberley) February 27, 2021
CPAC's stage is the same shape.
