So, once again, Republicans gather and use Nazi symbols.
The stage they're using in Orlando is a Nazi symbol Odal rune.
These things are no accidents.

By that same standard anything pagan, or even Christian/Judaic, and many more symbols are also NAZI symbols. Let's just ban symbolism and avoid these altogether. What a joke, lol.
Hinduism still uses the Swastika much like many other cultures. It is unfair to ban symbolism based on what it was used for before unless they stand for the same wrongdoing, in that case, one must learn from history.
As Valeant says, is it intentional or just stupidity? The rune on its own would be fine, but the colours chosen match the colours around the Nazi Swastika too. Let's not forget that this was a call to nationalism, much like that of the Nazis.
Banning symbolism is a joke, but ignoring historical parallels would also be a joke.
My post was a joke, and I'm surprised no one caught it. Double points to everyone for cracking me up twice.
I have to sort of agree with you. While the symbols the nazis used were just "pagan" (from other religions) (like the swastika for instance) these people use symbols for nefarious purposes, perverting their original meanings. Having them upside down, backwards, or just having them in the wrong context. It is a form of magic. And it probably works.
Though magic exists, that all depends on your definition of it. I've cursed and blessed many individuals over the course of my short life, and magic works without a doubt, but this magic doesn't seem like anything more than marketing magic.
The likeness is obvious to me. If I was at ground level I don't think I would recognize it. Yet it is intriguing and worth pondering.
I'm not convinced it's intentional but it is intriguing. It would be interesting to find out who designed the stage, or if it's simply a prefabricated setup.
After pondering and reading I feel it is not intentional or a Freudian slip. What I find interesting is it was highlighted by the change in color of carpeting. What I found odd was the stage was not square to the audience as is typical. Snopes says essentially 'undetermined'.
Thank you for sharing these links. After reading them, I lean toward thinking the shape is just a coincidence.
Could have they used this setup to have more space, as well as more, are seated surrounding the stage on three sides to offer a more a closer view? This kind of crap shows the sad side of many in our society. Come On...
I have been watching CPAC and being a Conservative find it refreshing. The majority of the speakers spoke about Conservative values, and where we go from here. Highlighting Conservatives believe in personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, traditional American values, and a strong national defense. Believe the role of government should be to provide people the freedom necessary to pursue their own goals. Conservative policies generally emphasize the empowerment of the individual to solve problems, and not rely on the Government to babysit one's life, and offer blanketed solutions.
I am loving all I have heard.
Yes that's my reaction too. I don't believe designers are stupid though..With elections, everything is thought through. The font, the colours, the logo, the stage set, the lightning, the wording...
So, probably it's intentional.
For a start, it started a conversation, something they probably wanted us to have. Another tweet-worthy topic. So Yes, I go for intentional.
I agree. It is not the first time. Something similar happened with a tshirt and some ads.
Someday, hopefully in the not too distant future, the left's obsession with demonizing their opponents with conspiracy theories will cease.
It won't be too soon for me. If there is a symbol there is no doubt in my mind whoever choose it and/or approved it had no idea there was any similarity.
And, having clicked on one of your links, someone needs to get glasses. The symbol you think you see isn't there.
Nazi apologist much? Pretty typical. Pu**y grabbing, apologies. Storm the Capital and try to murder the Vice President, apologies. Claim the election was stolen... apologies.
Republicans are either the party of QAnon or the Nazis these days.
"Republicans are either the party of QAnon or the Nazis these days."
I would have to disagree, it is just the most vocal of them that fall into this cateogry. I cannot imagine half the voting population of the US being that way.
I'm not apologizing for Nazis. I don't see any nazis any more than you do. I'm just not going to join a conspiracy gang or lie and say I see something that isn't there. .

Maybe not a lie but ignorance?
I'll be honest. I have no idea who that guy is, so I won't comment on him. I will say we are so polarized at the moment that ridiculous accusations are thrown out, daily, by our press for the purpose of obtaining clicks.
I hear so many anti Semitic comments on the left, but they aren't called 'nazis'. So if he is being labeled a neo Nazi due to anti semitism I'd probably not agree with the label. If he claims to be a neo Nazi....shame on him.
We have got to stop demonizing anyone who does not pander to our personal beliefs. It's like with Trump. People need to stop demonizing anyone who supported many of his policies and listen. We cannot solve problems by ignoring valid concerns.
A large percentage of our population feels disenfranchised. No one is listening. What they do listen to is a minority of the population who have nothing better to do but reenact the movie 'Mean Girls' on Twitter.
If people don't start respecting each other, start listening without throwing ignorant conspiracy theories around and genuinely attempt to see where the other side is coming from this will not get better.
The OP has offered nothing but an ill thought attempt to sow discord with a foolish conspiracy theory.
You and I agree for once. Off to mark this date on the calendar xD
The scriptures spoke of a golden calf, now what we have is a "golden pig".
Republicans and Conservatives ARE ridiculous

Still not as ridiculous as 'amen and awoman'.
Which Trumper will buy this lovely, understated artwork embodying the magical gaudiness of their fallen, but never gone, idol?
At $100,000 it's a steal!
https://nypost.com/2021/02/27/gold-trum … or-100000/
So it took the artist a year to create this . . . art. Is this the same kind of gallery art that is just paint can splashes on a canvas?
Maybe someday I will be educated enough to appreciate this kind of art.
Think there is an unmentioned fool here . . . the one that arranged for this "art" to be at CPAC.
Love those red flip flops. If I was wealthy, I'd buy it and auction off the rights to beat it to smthereens. All proceeds donated to charity. I bet it would be a rockin' fundraiser.

While Bernie has a loyal following, I think he's an absolute disaster for Democrats and about as sure a guarantee of four more years of Donald Trump as there is.If he's the nominee, Trump's campaign is going to tear him apart. And frankly, America is about individual achievements, accomplishments,...

Here once again Biden stands at a podium swings around his hands, and rants, seeking and appoint blame on American citizens, ultimately Republican citizens. Without cause, without proof of the motive of why or what possessed this nut job that attacked Paul Pelosi. Although in front of only a...
