A stunning number of mainstream figures on the arguably radicalized left are trying to cancel Hyatt Hotels for hosting this year’s CPAC conference, in part because they genuinely believe this year’s conference pays tribute to Nazi symbology …
To be clear, this isn’t just some fringe conspiracy theory — it’s being touted by mainstream left-wing figures from Hollywood figures like Alyssa Milano and D.L. Hughley to top-level Democrat Party strategists and media columnists.
At issue is a stage at this year’s CPAC that mainstream conspiracy theorists claim was purposefully designed to resemble a Nordic rune that appeared on Nazi uniforms.
This theory is as outlandish as the debunked theory that the OK hand gesture denotes white supremacy. If this theory were true, which it’s not, then America’s first black president, Barack Hussein Obama, would be a white supremacist:

Nevertheless, the latest harebrained theory from left-wingers — i.e., the same people who claim conservatives are dangerous conspiracy theorists — has gone viral among hundreds, if not thousands, of high-profile blue check mark leftists.
Here just a small sample of the insanity:

Are you okay with Nazi symbols being used on your properties?
Because if you fail to speak out & do something about this immediately, I’ll be sure to no longer patronize any of your properties ever again. #CPAC2021 #CPACstage #CPACNazi pic.twitter.com/beFauYAMwO

Notice how most of the tweets tagged @Hyatt. The growing consensus is that Hyatt needs to condemn CPAC and boot the conference from its hotel. However, the billion-dollar hotel chain has instead chosen to embrace actual liberal values.
In a statement emailed to the left-wing bellyachers, the hotel chain touted its interest in pursuing real inclusion, diversity and tolerance — three things left-wingers frequently virtue-signal about yet rarely actually practice.
“We take pride in operating a highly inclusive environment and we believe that the facilitation of gatherings is a central element of what we do as a hospitality company. We believe in the right of individuals and organizations to peacefully express their views, independent of the degree to which the perspectives of those hosting meetings and events at our hotels align with ours,” Hyatt reportedly said.
“Our own values support a culture that is characterized by empathy, respect and diversity of opinions and backgrounds, and we strive to bring this to light through what we do and how we engage with those in our care.”

This strong statement against the insanity provoked an outpouring of rage from the conspiracy theorists, with high-profile figures accusing Hyatt of supporting Nazis.
Fixed your statement for you @Hyatt.
Raise your hand if you will never stay at a Hyatt again.

Their PR dept is trying to put lipstick on a trash fire. Company leadership was probably desperate to drive revenues given the collapse of travel. But to host an event like this they’d have to be EXTRA careful. Instead they’re now an unapologetic partner of Nazi America. #Boycott

.@Hyatt has history of happily hosting racist groups. The Nazi scum of American Renaissance group held their annual racist fascist conventions at some Hyatt hotels, & virulent hate group ACT for America was infamously welcome at Hyatt a couple of years ago…#BoycottHyatt

The Nazi flag represented a state that murdered children. It was legal in their state to murder children. That’s as simple as I can put it.
The @Hyatt and @HyattOrlando are a couple of shitholes where they “welcome” people wearing the swastika. #HeilHyatt

I guess you’re cool with Nazi symbolism now.

Some Hyatt PR guy writes this generic statement, little knowing the firestorm that awaits him because of the Odal Rune.
“Hey, Bob, did you actually write that we were ‘just fine with Nazis displaying Nazi symbols’? Why would you have done that?” https://t.co/F2rm3gbH8x

Again, these are all fairly prominent people, as evidenced by their blue check marks. Yet you’re extremely unlikely to hear anybody in the press — particularly CNN’s Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy, who love to obsessively bemoan the Republican Party’s alleged descent into conspiratorial lala land — address this insanity.
The irony certainly isn’t lost on the mainstream conservative figures who’re watching as conspiracy theories flood the mainstream left:
The Left: Q is a bunch of crazy conspiracy theorists! We need to ban them everywhere!
Also the Left: The CPAC stage was shaped just like a random nazi symbol, which clearly means they’re all evil racists!!!!

In a statement posted to Twitter, American Conservative Union chair chair Matt Schlapp, the organizer of CPAC, strongly condemned the conspiracy theorists.
“Stage design conspiracies are outrageous and slanderous. We have a long-standing commitment to the Jewish community. Cancel culture extremists must address antisemitism within their own ranks. CPAC proudly stands with our Jewish allies, including those speaking from this stage,” he tweeted on Saturday evening.
