CPAC Stage Compared To Nazi Symbol On Social Media




/photo/1

Comparisons of law makers to fascists and Nazis isn't uncommon these days, but on Saturday the hashtag #Nazi was trending alongside mentions of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), where former President Trump is set to speak on Sunday. This time it wasn't Republican lawmakers who were compared to Nazis however, but rather the similarity of the stage to an ancient Norse symbol used by Nazis was noted by thousands of users on Twitter.

By Saturday afternoon there had been nearly 100,000 tweets that compared the CPAC stage to the ODAL Rune, which was used by a unit of the insidious Waffen SS, the initially named the SS-Volunteer Division Prinz Eugen (SS-Freiwilligen-Division "Prinz Eugen" later the 7th Volunteer Mountain Division. That unit was formed in 1941 and took part exclusively in action against the communist-led Yugoslavian partisans during the Second World War.

Many on Twitter shared images of the symbol along with photos of the CPAC stage: https://www.forbes.com/sites/petersuciu/2021/02/27/cpac-stage-compared-to-nazi-symbol-on-social-media/?sh=6e1fa6971e80

1. OMG, that's it! And I can't believe that was coincidental.

2. The way the two lines in the back only go part way, just like the symbol

is clear attention to detail.

3. I thought they did, until you just pointed it out

and I looked more carefully at the "serifs" of the stage.

(i mean, I thought they went all the way)

4. Yup. A swastika would have been too obvious, but

the people who are into this shit would recognize the symbol.

6. Even if Trump showed up Sunday sporting a Hitler mustache, they'd still say it's only a coincidence.
