CPAC 2021

As if things couldn’t get more crazy with this year’s Conservative Political Action Convention (CPAC), some eagle-eyed observers noted their stage seemed to have a hidden Nazi symbol on it…

Of course the people who were behind the display deny they meant for any sort of Nazi insignia and, truthfully, I want to give them the benefit of the doubt… but even so, I don’t know what to think.

If they did intend to put in, and hide, such a vulgar symbol on the stage, it would be… pretty disgusting, truthfully, and it seems a hard thing to think someone would dare to hide a symbol like that in such an event.

On the other hand, we are talking about Trump and what’s left of the Republican party, which for the past four years have uttered countless dog whistles of encouragement to the far right fringe and this could well be another example of just that.

It’s sad that we’ve gotten to the point where its hard to give people the benefit of the doubt in cases like that.
