This Meidas Contact parody advert, “The Hyatt Lodge: A paradise for Sedition,” jabs the lodge chain for internet hosting this 12 months’s CPAC occasion, whose stage resembled a Nazi rune. “Think about a vacation spot the place conspiracy thrives,” the mock advert begins. “Immerse your self in Nazi symbolism, Putin propaganda, and a QAnon paradise.” It is a spot the place you possibly can “chill out with Roger ‘Stone’ massages and make lifelong reminiscences with Proud Boys.”
The advert was impressed by the Nazi hate symbols displayed on CPAC’s stage as a part of its design. Hyatt has since known as the symbols “abhorrent.” Did they really assume internet hosting a pro-Trump CPAC conference would run easily?
