Set-Ups, Rune-Nation, Artful Debunking, and GOP Dopes Who Don’t Get the Left’s Sneaky Evil

I will try to make this quick, but you could learn a lot.

GOP – take notice. You got SNOOKERED.

I saw a meme on Gab that was somewhat dubious.


Now – I’m a bit of a bush-league authority on communism in Latin America – at least compared to most “Norte-Americanos”. The most exemplary executions by Che were of MEN, and I’m not even sure if I have ever seen a picture of one. There are many detailed and authoritative accounts of him PERSONALLY executing peasants. NUMBERS is not a problem. ACTION PICTURES is.


This just didn’t sniff right. Che murdering unarmed women? A PICTURE? I’m from Missouri on this.


I decided that I wanted to get the ORIGINAL image and validate it at the same time.

I did a search on the wonderful TinEye and found that the MEME had appeared in multiple places, but the ORIGINAL IMAGE had appeared as a reply on Twitter.

Here is the top post on that thread:

There is a wonderful slideshow video of Che Guevara, and a link to a 2013 article about him:


The image in question was NOT in that video or article, but it WAS in the REPLIES:

Note that these tweets were 4 years after the article.

I decided to look for this image elsewhere – not through TinEye, but rather by searching on relevant term in images. I turned off any filtering (b/c violence) and used the terms “Che Guevara executing women” in a DuckDuckGo image search.


This brings back a SNOPES entry immediately.


This is actually a good, DEEP, well-researched debunking.

It turns out that it was from a university socialist political “guerrilla theater” production at Emory College, likely in support of Soviet actions in Central America.

Thus, we are left with the ironic probability that this image was originally socialist propaganda, meant as an indictment of Salvadoran military or paramilitary forces, responsible for numerous atrocities against civilians, such as the notorious murders of Marxist “liberation theology” nuns. Such incidents were a powerful propaganda weapon for the atheist Soviets, quite ironically, used as a “contradiction” against American narratives in defense of the Salvadoran regime.

NOW – this would just end here – a weirdly karmic debunking of socialist propaganda used against socialists, had I not noticed ANOTHER Snopes featured article.



OK – this has to be a hilarious load of crap – I mean…..

YEAH, RIGHT. What – that weird pair of “half-Y” goalposts?


So at that point, I read the article.

My advice?


Now I urge you to click the link and read the Snopes article, but if you don’t want to do that, just peruse these convincing images:

Now – remember what I said…..


I’m going to add a new rule, which turns out to be like one of Alinsky’s, but this one serves TRUTH and not LIES…..


Now, one of my BEST TRICKS in finding truth is that people will publicly state helpful but seemingly conflicting TRUTHS. Try to save all the truths by “deconflicting” them.

  • CPAC’s stage sure looks like a symbol adopted by the Nazis
  • The idea that this is accidental doesn’t seem particularly plausible
  • A bunch of lefty Jews are acting AS ONE WOULD EXPECT to Nazi symbols
  • Matt Schlapp calls the accusations outrageous and slanderous [YES to the latter]

The only thing needed to SOLVE this is to simply add some more TRUTH to the mix. Observe…..

  • The LEFT understands SYMBOLS much better than the right (see some guy named “Q”)
  • The RIGHT misses symbols all the time, and the Establishment right is even WORSE
  • The LEFT loves to set people up as CHUMPS, and will brazen out the denials
  • Nobody wants to admit that they got snookered on something this stupid, but YEAH
  • The entire history of Trump in office has been one frame job after another
  • The media WILL NOT dig into a frame job against the RIGHT – they will play along
  • People in the design world lean INCREDIBLY strongly to the LEFT
  • People in the design world, by and large, DESPISE President Trump
  • People in the design world have extremely high opinions of their own intelligence
  • The left is getting more and more desperate and brazen in their frame jobs against Trump
  • Jews are very predictable in their suspicion and outrage, and are easily played
  • GOPe are very predictable in their lack of suspicion and forgiveness, and are easily played the other way
  • GOPe signed off on this stuff the whole way, you just know it, and are the perfect MARKS
  • If CPAC had accepted a stage design shaped like a dreidel, they would have been accused of pandering, and they’re dopey enough to fall for that one, too

NOW – here is the deal.

Nobody wants to confront this stuff, but it’s TIME. It’s time to go after the leftists who pull this crap, and make them PAY as the SCUM they are.

Here’s why it works.

Oh, the MEDIA will deny it up and down. They will mock. They will “refute”. They will HELP THE PERPS. They will “PROVE” that it wasn’t intentional BY THE LEFTISTS in the mix.

Just look at the Snopes article. Snopes will NEVER dig deep on this one, and if others do, they will question it. They will NOT dig deep and hard like they did on the Che Guevara piece. NOPE.

But THAT is not what punishes the perps. That is not what gives us JUSTICE.

The perpetrators’ fellow leftists will know the truth. THE PERPS CAN’T BE TRUSTED. They snaked Trump. They could snake their fellow leftists just as easily.

THEY WON’T BE ABLE TO WALK THE STREETS. Why? Because THEY GOT CAUGHT. Getting CAUGHT is a SIN for the left. It’s not a SIN if you don’t get caught, but it IS if you do get caught.

Too bad.

So, if I was Matt Schlapp, I would drag the stage design people all over hell. Refuse to pay. Take ’em to court. Make ’em testify. Find their social media posts where they BRAGGED about setting up CPAC.

I am CONFIDENT that somebody set CPAC up. FIND IT and PROVE IT.

And enjoy the show, when they CAN’T WALK THE STREETS.

Well said.


I would bet that most of these commies raising a stink about this supposedly “well known” Nazi symbol had never heard of it. I know I’ve never before heard of an Odal Rune. /smh


Never seen it; didn’t know about it. I wouldn’t have noticed a thing. I think the appropriate response would have been “Prove it!” as in prove that it was done intentionally.


It’s all about getting an immediate emotional response that they can use as a handle.


Bravo! to the author.


My thoughts went straight from “accusation” to “set-up” and then I could follow along with your explainer afterwards. These people are evil and others have taught them how to be more evil. Eric Holder, we are looking at you.


“Bondo” Barr didn’t clean it, on either of his turns in the seat. The only thing about Holder was that he was more “in your face” about it.


The entire corrupt DoJ is a symptom of a much deeper malignancy. As originally conceived, there were essentially no Federal crimes. Back in the day when people said, “don’t make a Federal case out of it….”, it’s because it rarely happened.

Enter the ’60’s, and between drug laws and civil rights, there are Federal criminal cases all over everywhere….and the rot derives from that.


Words of Jesus to the elites of his day…
(who were planning to take him out)

“You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and he stood not in the truth; because truth is not in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof.”

John 8:44


Speaking of set-ups, they are harping on the Capitol event and using dubious “studies” for their propaganda. They are trying to milk this for all the hate against every day Americans as they can.

The PROBLEM is that without STRONG pushback, people are drinking the kool-aid and not aware at all of how they are conflating MAGA people with ChiNazi actors.

“The study, by George Washington University’s Program on Extremism, examined court documents and other data from 257 cases filed in federal court as of late February.”


If NBC is reporting a study at GWU that their narrative is BS, it is in serious trouble. They could completely bury it if it were the Christian Science Monitor reporting about a study at the Hoover Institute, but it’s in “own-goal” territory.

The Kool-Aid is tainted.


Yeah. They are losing the narrative, despite the efforts to keep it going.

The outrageous accusations give the politicians on both sides of the aisle cover for attacking MAGA.

But at this point, it’s going to be for soundbites. They will have to come up with another FF in order to push their insurrectionist lies and paper over their own culpability in the plot.


not being able to see this nazi symbology, I’m a little lost but I get the overall idea, Wolfie. It is an evil plot. What about gold statue of Pres. Trump I read about?


The “symbol” in question is a square of dimension x, where at one corner you extend both legs another x, then, at the extended point, you turn and parallel the square again.

Alternatively, starting at one end of the “feet”, you go “straight, right, straight, straight, right, right, right, straight, straight, right”, moving one unit each time.

It’s a basic, simple pattern than anyone randomly assembling stage pieces might use. Everything is right angles.

As far as golden Trumps — I don’t see tweets, so I have no idea.


Zoe, in my best description.
The raised stage is built in semblance to the Nazi Swastika
The speakers podium sets in the center of all arms.
My guess is no body viewing the stage , at eye-level or sitting in the room from the floor would notice.
But, from a sufficiently elevated position, it becomes glaringly obvious, it’s a SWASTIKA
DESIGN Pattern.


Thank you, Chris, so much.


Makes one wonder, sometimes a stage is only a stage, and there might have been some functional reasons for its shape. But as it appears to have set off some of the opposition, why not use the outrage for what it is worth, never mind any initial attention or inattention to patterns or shapes.

It looks like when carried to extremes, almost any shape or symbol can be given a bad meaning under the right circumstances. And trying to avoid any of them can have ridiculous results. I’m reminded of part of the story line in a Swedish novel from the late 1970s that was heavy on satire: a young aristocrat of the name Dahlstierna wanted to design his coat-of-arms. Now, his name as translated to English would be something like «The Valley Star», so his coat-of-arms ended up with four arms. The logic was that a six-pointed star and a five-pointed star all were too heavy with unwanted meaning. The results were described as a compass rose drawn by a drunk tattoo artist.

So no odal-rune-with tails for the shape of the stage. And by all means, no upward-pointing arrows, since that is the shape of the Tyr rune, ᛏ, also favored by some nationalists somewhere. In fact, there was a motion by the Swedish goverment to make certain runes into «hate speech». Then we should no longer put light-bulb symbols in schematics, since these are a circle with a cross inside them — sun-crosses, bad bad nazi symbolism. Fiat Obscuritas indeed…

This nonsense has to stop. Sillinesses like these used to be satire, now there is the meme that April 1st is cancelled, as no-one can imagine weirder things happening than what are actually happening.

And finally here are some runes:


Alternate letters, really.


I agree a stage is a stage.
I would not be surprised to see a similar stage for a leftie event.

This is silliness and should be ignored, instead of amplifying it.

No he didn't!!!  

They have call the Right and RIno republicons NAZI for the past four years.

Just agree with them and they’ll shut up and find something new to call us.


Yep, I agree, Wolf…it was a setup.

I mean, who would even bring it up in the first place?

You would have to be looking at that particular overhead view of the stage, to even make out the shape of that ‘Odal Rune’.
Looking at the stage from other angles, it doesn’t show.

And then you would have to know that obscure bit of history about the Nazis’ use of that rune.
Which I guarantee…most people don’t know about.
I didn’t.

When I saw that Rune, it reminded me of this recent movie & series:
comment image

It’s a young-adult story about younglings who hunt demons and evil creatures.

comment image

They are born to it.
They have Angel blood…and draw these Runes on themselves for power or protection.
Then the Runes become permanent, on their skin…like a tattoo.

And the Odal Rune is like their signature rune for their secret order of Shadowhunters.

I’m wondering now…did this movie/tv series get slammed for using a “Nazi symbol”?
I doubt it.

The series ran four years, from 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019.
It won 13 awards and had 22 nominations.

I think it was probably cancelled because the younglings were getting older and no longer fit the parts they were playing.

So, Wolf…I think you’re absolutely right about the setup.




I do not know the Nazi symbol they refer too. Being called Nazi is not new and it is the easiest slander to use for anything one is against.
I noticed nothing but maybe I am not looking for it. I have never known Nazis in this country but plenty of communists.
I think one can see almost anything if one wants too.
I am just sad that there are evil people if this is a Nazi symbol would have created a stage like that. If this was a set up then those people need to be held responsible.

I looked at that stage and did not see the symbol, but my IMMEDIATE reaction was that the stage looked like the dumbest I had ever seen. I just wrote it off to the fact that our side has no sense of effective aesthetics. I should have guessed that our side was just being its usual chumpish self.

And speaking of dumb, the video CPAC did was a tedious waste of time, again because we do not have a sense of effective aesthetics. The self-congratulatory tone reeked of money raising but did zero in terms of addressing what is actually going on. Fund raising and cluelessness, that pretty much describes the state of things.


Conservatives have never been very creative, yet there must be SOME creative conservatives out there. Where do we find them?


I think this ‘Guardians of Democracy’ site is part of this Wrap Up Smear setup:

It was one of the first to publish a piece on the CPAC-stage-nazi-symbol smear.

This site also did a piece on the ‘Gold Trump Statue’:

comment image

I think that ‘golden statue’ was another setup, too.

Both of these articles were posted on Friday, February 26th.

I’m giving it the full side eye:

That ‘guardians’ site also has the three stripes as part of their logo.


Yep, yikes!!!!!!!


Proud Boys?

I don’t think it started out as a controlled opposition op.

IIRC…Proud Boys started out by defending Deplorables at the 2017 Inauguration festivities in DC, from the hordes of antifa assholes who were there to cause trouble.

Gavin McInnes was one of the early leaders.


Ok, about this rune business.

The “Odal” rune is a corruption of the actual rune, Ethel or Othala. It doesn’t even resemble the Odal thing, it looks like this:

comment image%3Fnii%3Dt&f=1&nofb=1

The original meaning of the rune Ethel is “home, social status, possession and acquisition.”

I say we own the fucker. It doesn’t mean what they say it means, anyway. It’s just like the rainbow and the color purple; it has been co-opted by morons.


As far as I am concerned, this is so obviously ridiculous on the surface that it should be a total embarrassment to leftists.

They are the ones who have for twenty years been given to absurd claims of equivocation that the GOP, George W. Bush, McCain/Romney/Ted Cruz, and Donald Trump are EXPLICITLY and organically linked to the German Socialist(!) Workers party of the 1930s. It didn’t start with Trump – Trump just gave them an opportunity to ratchet up their rhetoric to eleventy eleven.

All while they hurl incessant libel and slander that their enemies of “anti-s3m1t1c.” Just like “r@c1sm” it’s a word that is genuinely offensive, so they just find whatever epitaph they can find in the name-calling elephant-hurling gas-lighting character-assassinating psyops public relations smear and optics campaign against their enemies.


Make them own this meme – make them live up to their own STUPIDITY.

Achtung! Lefties accuse CPAC of using Nazi symbol at conference
Hyatt Hotels: ‘All such symbols are abhorrent and unequivocally counter to our values’
Bob Unruh By Bob Unruh
Published March 1, 2021 at 6:13pm

In today’s extreme political rhetoric, anyone who even likes President Trump and his agenda is prone to be called a Nazi.

A prominent MSNBC host likened the four years of his administration to a Nazi “attack on truth,” and Israel demanded an apology after a CNN anchor compared Trump to Nazis. An Arizona elections official said Trump was “on the side of the freaking Nazis.”

Now, the left sees the Third Reich in the stage upon which Trump spoke Sunday.

The Daily Beans Podcast asked, “Has anyone else noticed the shape of the CPAC stage is the Odal Run/SS insignia?”

So began the “stage design conspiracy,” said American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp, whose organization put on the Conservative Political Action Conference.

He called the charge “outrageous and slanderous.”

“We have a long standing commitment to the Jewish community,” he said. “Cancel culture extremists must address antisemitism within their own ranks. CPAC proudly stands with our Jewish allies, including those speaking from this stage.”

Business Insider reported the stage resembled a Nordic rune that appeared on Nazi uniforms.

But it is also used in non-extremist contexts as well, the report said.

“Runic alphabets predate the modern Roman alphabet and were used widely across Europe,” Business Insider said. “They were appropriated by white supremacists due to the use of runes by Nazi Germany.”

Officials for Hyatt Hotels Corporation, which hosted CPAC in Orlando, Florida, said they abhor hate symbols as counter to their values.

“We take the concern raised about the prospect of symbols of hate being included in the stage design at CPAC 2021 very seriously as all such symbols are abhorrent and unequivocally counter to our values as a company,” the company said in a statement.

The hotel said the ACU set up the stages.


The hotel said the ACU set up the stages.”

But does the ACU have their own stage team of conservative workers?

They may have hired leftists to design the stages…and even to set them up.

Business Insider has quite a few leftist writers.


cthulhu, thank you for the description of the stage. Regarding the golden statue, wish I knew where I read there was one. Of course it might not have been true.


Zoe I know you can’t see it easily for yourself but it’s just another leftist trying to make hay where there is none.

It was just a fun statue of Trump that people could take their picture with. Trump himself is gold but there is a lot of red, white, and blue as well. The left wants to make it out to be a “golden calf” moment but it’s nothing of the sort, not any different really than a gold Christmas tree.

It was sponsored by “Look Ahead America” which is one of the groups challenging the voting apparatus that the left is scared of. They’re the ones that published the mathematical analysis showing that the vote totals as tabulated were impossible without major discrepancies.

Michaelh, thank you so much for explaining about the statue. I just felt there was a good explanation. I just thought it might be a dig at the dems for pulling down all the statues, and I Would like Pres Trump to be on Mt. Rushmore someday.


The NY Post had an article on it. It’s a stupid looking thing that reminds me of Bart Simpson.

CPAC had it on sale for $100,000:


I use the Othala/Odal/Othila/Adel/Ethel rune all the time. It shows pictographically the gates guarding the sacred space. IN the sacred space is your ancestry, your history, your progeny both now and in the future, your land, your sacred space, your God/s. The Anglo-Saxon word for prince is exactly Odal – Atheling. Ethel also means exactly the same thing. So does Adel.

Blood and soil. Family friends and country. The things we all fight to protect and maintain.

I am so very sick of this rune being called a Nazi symbol. The fact that one group used it for their own purposes means nothing. The rune has been around for more than a thousand years.

The Greek Key symbol shows EXACTLY the same thing as Othala, both with and without the “wings” everyone freaks out about. The fact that it’s upright and repeated in a pattern disguises it somewhat. But hey, let’s demonize one particular variation of it.

And BTW. That “Viking” in the picture is no heathen and he’s not Asatru. How do I know? Well for one thing I AM. This is a very small community and that guy is not a part of it here in the Valley of the Sun nor in AZ. As you already know he’s a paid actor and he’s well paid to try to set up our community which tends to be very conservative as a rule.


Tell them they are paranoid and imagining things.


Own the stupid, Kos.

Hyatt Hotels releases statement further distancing company from CPAC’s Nazi stage
Walter Einenkel
Daily Kos Staff
Monday March 01, 2021

Last week, amidst the raving and the lies and the misinformation of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) “America Uncanceled” money pit, some people pointed out that the stage design for the event had a very particular shape. In fact, many people thought that the shape of the stage was more than reminiscent of the Nazi Odal rune—also known as the Othala rune. The use of the runic alphabet system’s symbology was a part of the Nazi mythologizing in the 20th century about its Aryan history. Taken to mean property or ancestral property, you can see why a bunch of Nazis fetishizing blood lines and purity would take to such symbology. You would also consider the relationship between the conservative movement and white supremacists a context that might make its appearance at a big conservative event distressing.

CPAC organizers very quickly dismissed this design similarity as “outrageous and slanderous.” Hyatt Hotels, the chain housing this big collection of lies, said they had nothing to do with the design and denounced symbols like the Odal rune as “abhorrent.” CPAC chair Matt Schlapp tweeted that “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.” Of course, when you are the political party that houses Rep. Marjorie Greene and wildly anti-Semitic conspiracy theories connecting Jewish world domination to child sex trafficking and Muslim caliphates and the Democratic Party, forgive me if I stare at you with a jaundiced eye.

Hyatt has now released an additional statement trying to further distance the hotel chain from the CPAC 2021 convention with a long press release basically saying that they believe in all kinds of things like “inclusivity” and while hosting CPAC 2021 was done in the spirit of the peaceful expression of views, they are super bummed to find out that the right-wing, white supremacist-supporting CPAC stage looks like a Nazi rune.


Oh yeah…this was a set up.

And now all the usual players are joining in on the Wrap Up Smear.

They are now using that symbol for a GOP graphic:

The article says that Trump was sweaty at CPAC because he fears this man, who could spill the beans on the Trump Organization:


It wouldn’t surprise me to find out all the people listed in your first paragraph are working together: ‘The enemy of my enemy is my friend’.

‘Hopanyl’: coin it, use it often — brilliant!


Yes, I was more focused on ‘hopanyl’. Definitely worth using and reusing WRT the opposition. 🙂



Then employ it.


Screw them and their cultural appropriation.

My first Scottish ancestor was named Thor. Seriously. He came to Scotland before 1100. He was probably a Saxon or a Dane. Just because the fucking Nazis co-opted and used runes doesn’t mean they are no longer culturally significant to me. The Nazis appropriated many cultural symbols. That doesn’t mean they get to keep them.

My fight back is I will wear purple, love rainbows, and insist that the rune Othala/Ethel is a symbol used by my people for over 1000 years before there was such a thing as a Nazi.

They can go piss up a rope.
