Wadda expect? That's what Raw Story described it.

That being said, I think conservatives are far stupider than we make them out to be.

Tbh I thought it was meant to troll democrats not dogwhistle repubs. 99.9% of Trump supporters have no idea what that rune is. 70% probably couldnt name 50 states.

Ian Walters, director of communications for the ACU and CPAC, told the Forward that the company "provided several options for us to choose from and what we ended up with was the most workable of the options they submitted."

So out of all the designs Design Foundry gave them, CPAC still chose the rune.
This. Still, not buying this explanation. That stage design makes no sense without it being designed very specifically that way coming to mind.

Why is CPAC paying a "liberal" firm in Maryland for a stage in a Florida conservatives conference room?

Couldn't a conservative Floridian business do it?

By "close ties to MSNBC" you mean that MSNBC was once their customer. That article indicates no ties closer to MSNBC than to CPAC.

I'd suggest that it's so that they can blame "the libs" for their Nazi symbol stage, but that would imply that they have foresight.

I have to wonder if this was ignorance on the designer's part (but never the conservatives, who are too well acquainted with Nazis since Charlottesville, at a minimum), or if as an undersold design, it was intentional pranking that went horribly wrong for them.
I posted this in the other topic on whether people thought this was deliberate or not, but I had no idea that rune was a Nazi symbol two weeks ago and I'd bet good money that 95+% of the board and the general population didn't either. To me, the most likely explanation for this remains that it was a coincidence, something that the article in the OP seems to cement.

Honestly, I'm far more concerned with how the Republicans have basically become a fascist party rather than their likely-accidental use of fascist symbols. There's far bigger and more substantive issues to take the Republicans to task over than what their stage looks like at one of their wingnut conferences.
