Their stage has already been show to be the Odal, A rune adopted by SS soldiers.




So, that's fun. America Uncancelled, indeed. Might as well prove what us Minority have been saying for years.

I mean, it tracks. There is sadly nothing here of surprise, apart from maybe the balls on these bastards. Or is it desperation? Also I just got done reading the note the fbi sent MLK attempting to blackmail him into suicide and holy shit it reads like the worst of modern trolls, while even having the gall for pretending to be a fellow minority. It is worth reading for anyone who hasn't seen it cause wow, the mentality of the people behind that is not too different to what goes around today, except bare and unfiltered through confusion and/or bias.

News about this is trending and yet I knew about this years ago, I thought this was already a publically documented thing?

No I'm not saying it's a new thing, just that I've only recently learnt of it myself. It's tricky to keep track of the immensity of this crap! 😔

I can see how you'd get that stage design naturally without knowing the rune. A large central area as centre stage, with two wings for peripheral staff and stuff to go on. The "cut-outs" between the central square and the wings act as a design feature to make it more interesting than a boring right-angled "V" shape justting forwards, and possibly also for off-stage camera access and angles, etc. Once you've got that shape of the stage space, picking out the rune in the floor design intuitively follows.

It's also a less swirly version of the Angel rune from the Mortal Instruments movie, and I'm guessing/hoping that wasn't a Nazi reference.


OTOH, whilst I've no particular reason to assume Cassandra Clare is a nazi and expect that's a coincidence, it'd hardly be shocking if US conservatives adopted it deliberately.

*GASP* The cult that claims to see secret symbols of Jewish Satanic Lizard men in pizza place logos uses secret symbols to show their anti-Semitic ideology?! Well color me shocked, next you're going to tell me they're actually racists and sexists too.

I mean yeah, it's also just some basic geometric shapes that can and almost certainly was accidental. If they had come up with a pair of SS thunderbolts I'd start asking questions. As is, I just call it unlucky.

Any gaff the Democrats make, whether intentional or not, everyone is on them for not knowing better and being disappointing.

I see no reason not to do the same for the Republicans.

If they can try to bring down President Obama and the First Lady over the Terrorist Fist Jab, I can marvel over the Odal.

Oh marvel away, because this is either the worst fucking luck imaginable, or they're finally ready to just admit to their true colours.

Also how did 'terrorist fist bump' become a thing? Because that motion has been around for like ever.

I'm also curious just how well known this symbol is. Like...show of hands, who knew this was a Nazi Symbol (man, having multiple reaction emojis would be super handy right now...)?

Like...I'm aware of the Swastika obviously and the SS Thunderbolt but had you shown me this symbol and asked me what it meant, I probably would have guessed some kind of Cancer Awareness Fund (specifically Breast Cancer with their pink ribbon design). I honestly don't know if this is something you would expect the "common" person to know or not.

It's not IMPOSSIBLE that this was done on purpose (hell, the entire purpose of "Dog Whistles" is that only people in the know are aware of it) but it seems pretty far fetched to see that and roll with Nazi. Besides, there are probably plenty of far more overtly Nazi things at this conference than this :D

If I start off with "Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya", and you finish off "You killed my Father, prepare to die"... we're going to have a good time talking.

Because that shows me that not only are you in the know, but you probably have more pop culture tidbits that I might find interesting.

If I say it to someone, and they look at me and go "Hi, Inigo, I'm Boring Person" I know I'm talking to someone not in the know.

Just because it's not commonly known to us doesn't mean it's not commonly known to a certain group. Legitimately, that is the reason for coded language and symbols. To parade to those in the know while the rest of us go unaware, because it might still be too dangerous to let your true hand be known. It's why I stiffen my back when I hear people mention Canadians down here in Florida.

And this certain group has had long ties with Neo-Nazis and the like.








It's hard to continue to give benefits of the doubt to a party that's done everything to court nazis and white supremacists. I don't believe everyone in the party knows. I don't even believe everyone in the Republican Party are racists. But it's simply baffling how often the Republicans seems to have members with racist beliefs and yet they innocently run up against typically white nationalist talking points, party figures, and iconography all the time,, with no malice aforethought.

No mention of that statue?
What is this artist's deal lmao, how and why would you blow your life savings on a statue that is not only ugly, not only unimpressive (it's pretty damn small for a statue), but also of Trump.

OT: Seems like a bit of a reach honestly, but then these people really are capable of anything. What is this CPAC thing for anyway? First thing that came to mind was the machine those with sleep apnea use.

Yeah, got me. I assumed the statue was some kinda joke from the Onion. I mean I can totally see republicans building trump a golden statue of trump, but not one in shorts.

It's literally on the flag of the National Socialist Movement
The Odal rune as used by fascists is well known by anybody that actually pays attention to politics...like conservative organizers who've been under fire for having fascists wave it alongside flags for their candidate.

Yes I knew about this rune beforehand.

In any case, I’d be more freaked out by the more explicit anti-semites like the Farukhan but more conservative guy or all the Happy Science and Japanese QAnon dudes.

Edit: and, of course, all the people who attend every CPAC and have always been precisely this awful.
