I did see Don Jr.'s speech yesterday.  It was a clown show extraordinaire.  He is clearly trying to do some kind of impersonation of his dad and it just isn't working.

Nazi is trending right now because the CPAC stage is shaped like a Nazi symbol. I don't want to rehost all the images, but you can see them here https://twitter.com/AsherWhites/status/1365690010108915717?s=20

What do you think, accidental or on purpose?
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

Snopes rating: Unproven (whether intentional)
https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/cpac-stage-nazi-symbol/

I can only imagine it was unintentional. But it is wildly coincidental. In this day and age where everything down to the smallest detail is scrutinized by the web horde, I find it unimaginable that some designer would do that intentionally thinking no one would pick up on it. Unless, of course, they wanted it to get recognized. Or maybe a designer did it ironically with no input from CPAC/GOP and wanted it to get noticed. In any case, it's kind of appropriate for a CPAC rally.

In their defense I think it's normal to refer to a former president, vice president this way.  Maybe adding former gets too cumbersome.

How often do you hear Obama, Bush or Clinton this way?

Not adding 'former' is disrespectful and in the climate of 'stolen election nonsense is dangerous' fake news'

I wouldn't even have guessed that that was a nazi symbol.

If I were deciding how to decorate a place for an organization that people compare to nazis then I would think that I would steer clear of anything that might draw the comparison.

I feel that the left brining up things like this sort of make them look crazy. There's enough disgusting shit going on at cpac that finding hidden symbols is unnecessary.

I think the stage shape is a bit weird, but I don't know if I think it was intentional.

I'm going with my theory that the set designer is a dyed in the wool liberal, found some obscure Nazi rune, designs the CPAC stage after it as a wink and a nudge as to what s/he thinks the GOP stands for. Knowing full well the interwebs will tease out his/her easter egg mockery and have a field day over it. That seems very 2021.

I mean, if this was the first time I'd agree and say its a bit of over fantasy and conspiracy theory at play. Unfortunately, its both not the first time, and it was done by a party who has shifted to embrace conspiracy as a fact of life. The two together seems to give validity to the claim even if there is none, if for no other reason than to play by their own parties rhetoric and rules.

Oh simmer down. I'm not saying any of that. I just find it hard to believe that some CPAC organizer(s) would be dumb enough (or clever enough) to intentionally use an obscure Nazi symbol in their stage design. It just seems like a stretch. However, I never thought I would see the likes of what happened on 1/6 either. So it's anyone's guess really.

I'm still digging to find the designer. Where there's a custom built set, there is a designer(s) behind it.

In any case, we'll never find out for sure unless a video surfaces of a CPAC Event Production meeting where we see Ted Cruz up at whiteboard saying, "Guys, I'm just spit-balling here, but what if we have something like this as the stage..." He proceeds to draw a swastika. Nunes pipes up, "No, no, way too obvious, but I like it." Mitch weighs in, "Hey, there's this other one I've seen that is not so obvious, but really speaks to me...and to us.. The Odal one, or something like that." He grabs the marker from Ted and crudely draws it out on the board. He continues, "I've seen some Proud Boys with it, obscure, but significant..." Nods of agreement circle the conference room.

At the top end only some are actual white supremiscists.
However in the party there are many WS and will get employed.
Just like FuckerCs writer their "subtle" influence is seen.

I have my doubts that the stage was set up that way to mimic Nazi imagery. I think it's probably just a coincidence, although I certainly can't knock people for seeing it and making the connection based on the way the Republican party has evolved. They are really inviting these comparisons at this point.

I vote for coincidence.  Looking at the layout I can see all the elements and why they are there, ways to get on and off stage, places to put people.

But I can't rule it out. It's not like there aren't NAZI supporters in the GOP. But unlikely.

Yeah, I don't doubt that there are a number of people reading too much into symbolism.  For example, I seem to recall some old time regulars here claiming that various aerospace companies and agencies were satanic because they had stars in their logos.

CNolan and EWright and all those other easter egger directors...

is this a Q equivalence to find meaning behind nothing?
aaaah maybe - i'll give you a slim % on that.
but this is along the same arguement lines than trump didn't incite the Jan 6th.
it is a built up of repeated, confirmed, recorded, pattern of behaviour for this group that employs the likes of (FCarlson, LIngraham, TLahren, Crowder, BShapiro, Rush etc) who all try to convince you that blackman-bad-WS doesn't exist-confed civil war was not about slavery, "Jews will not replace us" was apparently very fine because they paid for their permit, and...

don't give these POS any reasonable doubt - they haven't earned it.
