If there’s one thing the far-Left loves to do, it’s make up lies about their opposition in order to silence them.
They’ll fabricate conspiracy theories that are utter nonsense, and more often than not, many will bow down and appease them.
And that is exactly what Hyatt Hotels tried to do Sunday and the Conservative Political Action Congress (CPAC) absolutely blasted them for lying amid yet another far-Left loony conspiracy theory.
Every year, conservatives from across the country gather for the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.
And every year, the radical Left tries to find a way to attack the event and those who attend it.
This year, the Left decided that they would manufacturer a conspiracy theory that suggested the stage used at CPAC was deliberately designed to resemble a “Nazi symbol.”
While many leftists made the claim and spread the conspiracy theory online, they provided zero evidence that the stage was designed to resemble any Nazi imagery.
Even members of the far-Left “mainstream” media dismissed the claim as a conspiracy theory that is nothing but utter nonsense.

There are plenty of fair shots to take at CPAC but this idea that the event is intentionally designing its stage in the shape of an obscure Nazi symbol is Marshal of the Supreme Court level stuff https://t.co/7P1BrF4SlT

But rather than taking the same route as other rational humans, Hyatt Hotels took the opportunity to fan the fake news flames by issuing a statement that essentially threw CPAC organizers under the bus while validating the Left’s lies.
In their statement, Hyatt claimed that they were taking the conspiracy theory “very seriously as all such symbols are abhorrent and unequivocally counter to our values as a company.”
“The CPAC 2021 event is hosted and managed by the American Conservative Union that manages all aspects of event logistics, including the stage design and aesthetics,” the statement continued.
“We discussed directly with ACU leadership who told us that any resemblance to a symbol of hate is unintentional. We will continue to stay in dialogue with event organizers regarding our deep concerns. Any further questions can be directed to CPAC.”
Hyatt then chose to release a second, much harsher statement in which they attacked the event and it’s attendees, the very people who have given the hotel more business in one week than they’ve basically had for an entire year.
The hotel claimed that attendees had to be reminded “to wear masks and socially distance, even while colleagues occasionally faced hostility from attendees who did not support our policies.”
“Further, we were extremely disappointed by the disrespect many individuals involved in the event showed to our colleagues, as it is reflective neither of our own commitment to care for members of the Hyatt family nor of how we wish to conduct business,” the statement continued.
“When we learned that CPAC 2021 stage design had been compared to a symbol of hate, we promptly raised this concern with meeting organizers who strongly denied any connection to such symbols. Had we initially recognized the potential connections to hate symbolism, we would have proactively addressed it prior to commencement of the event. Unfortunately, this became clear to us only after the event kicked off. With CPAC’s denial of any intentional connection to hate symbols and our concerns over the safety of guests and colleagues in what could have been a disruptive situation, we allowed the event to continue.”
With Hyatt choosing to side with conspiracy theorists over the truth, CPAC went on the offensive, releasing a statement of their own in which they accused Hyatt of ignoring their own mission statement by attacking their customers and “caving into the pressures of the politically-motivated social media agitators who seek to destroy CPAC, our attendees and speakers from across the country, and the millions of Americans who support our work.”
CPAC went on to rightly point out that Hyatt’s statements sought to “validate demonstrably false and malicious claims” made by far-Left activists who want to silence conservatives.
To make matters worse for Hyatt, CPAC also said that the senior management of the hotel “acknowledged that these claims were false,” and that Hyatt Hotels had actively “recruited” the event.
But then CPAC landed the proverbial knockout punch, pointing out that Hyatt had been very involved in the stage’s design.
“For months we have collaborated with your team on logistics, including sharing, reviewing, and approving the stage design that was created by one of our subcontractors,” CPAC said in their statement.
“The fact that no one on the Hyatt staff ever raised concerns during the process shows the ridiculous nature of your statements. Moreover, your statements falsely conceal your oversight role. In fact, the Hyatt Hotel, with our organization and subcontractors, approved and worked collaboratively to build this stage. Only after a coordinated far-Left assault to destroy our conference arose did you succumb to lies and compound them with your own.”
Clearly, Hyatt Hotels had a choice to make, and they chose to side with the Left’s conspiracy theorists over their guests and the truth.
As an annual event that draws large crowds year after year, Hyatt Hotels has ensured that they have not only lost the opportunity to ever host CPAC again, but they have insulted the millions of Americans who support CPAC and what it stands for.
At the same time, Hyatt’s choice has proven that there are very few corporations who care about the truth.
These corporate overlords will always choose to side with the far-Left, no matter how ridiculous their conspiracy theories are.
We live in a time in which truth no longer matters, and unless the American people fight back with the same gusto as CPAC, this will continue to be the case.
