Perhaps out of sheer jealousy, the left has gone out of their way to discredit CPAC attendees and organizers as anti-Jewish, even creating a drama where there was none, and when in fact, there is no truth to their claims. I was at CPAC, and I attended numerous events with my Jewish friends, as they welcomed me warmly to eat with them and observe their traditions and Appointed Times with God. We observed Purim and Shabbat together.
“We were able to make this happen due to generous help from the organizers of CPAC, and also help from our donors,” Rabbi Yintz Tendler said in opening remarks on Friday afternoon.
If the left took some time to read the book of Esther, this whole CPAC-Nazi reference might seem quite ironic to them; most likely, it will be lost on them as they push forward to cancel Conservatives in their lust for power.
Scary times! The Left insists that CPAC was attended by Nazis and promoted anti-Jewish messaging. At first, the Hyatt Hotels defended CPAC, and then the Hyatt turned on CPAC.
According to Hot Air:
Hyatt Hotels, the host of this year’s convention, issued an initial statement politely eschewing the proper response — “you people have lost your minds” — and instead blah-blah-ing about its respect for tolerance and inclusivity. You can read that in Jazz’s post. The problem for Hyatt is that it didn’t satisfy the mob. The angry tweets and threats of boycotts kept coming, leading the company to put out a second statement sounding a note of concern about the stage design and disclaiming all responsibility for it:
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 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. 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.
In other words: Blame CPAC, not us. But that didn’t hack it for Hyatt’s critics either. The allegations of complicity in promoting Nazi iconography kept coming, eventually causing the company to issue a third, much longer statement designed to satisfy the mob once and for all. If only we had recognized the hateful connotations of the stage design, Hyatt insisted, we surely would have intervened. Not only that, they claimed, but various people attached to the event were rude to our staff — a little nudge from the company to its detractors that it shares their disdain for the sort of people who’d participate in CPAC.
DID ANYONE ASK THE JEWS WHO WERE THERE?
Gathered in a large room full of tables and top-notch catering service, within steps of the activity of CPAC in Orlando, were the Young Jewish Conservative group and their friends.
The Young Jewish Conservative group had a four-day event with breakout discussions right there, at the Hyatt Hotel Feb 25-28, free to CPAC attendees with full lunch, dinner, prayer services, and panels to discuss the “American First” concerns of the Jewish Community.
Special guests included “A-List ” top-level honorable speakers. It was a beautiful, festive and positive event that CPAC promoted.
The “cancel culture” of the left and the Hyatt’s participation, with their flip flop of support for Trump supporters, is embarrassing for the left because it is childish, made-up drama.
The left claimed that there was some secret anti-Jewish message on the stage when President Donald J. Trump spoke.

“As the grandson of Holocaust survivors, and as a proud American, Marine and Jew, I find these attacks on CPAC to be outrageous and grotesque. I thank Matt Schlapp, Mercedes Schlapp, and Dan Schneider for being proud Christian Zionists and such great friends of the Jewish people,” Josh Mandel, a Candidate for the US Senate from Ohio, told me.
Mandel was a part of a panel that the Young Jewish Conservative group hosted. He spoke about his service as a US Marine, his America First policies, his support for President Donald J. Trump, and his admiration for Christians who volunteer in Isreal. Highlighting his deep regard for the brotherhood that can be shared between different groups.
How tragic that the left completely misses that point with their drive to harass and dominate people.
The group is such good friends with CPAC organizers that they decided to be proactive in their support of the CPAX organizers, and invite people to participate in their annual event for next year by pre-registering for their Shabbat and Purim event for 2022.
“The Young Jewish Conservatives’ Purim luncheon at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) had everything: a speed reading of the Megillah by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, hamentaschen, a kid from Brooklyn dressed in a red squid costume, a comedian in a Rush Limbaugh sweatshirt, and a comparison of Democratic U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar to Haman.”
The following is the group’s letter from Tuesday, in full:
Thank you for joining an unforgettable CPAC 2021! Between the festive meals, networking, and great speakers, this year was a beautiful example of how we can join America’s premier national political conference as proud Jews. You may have seen that some internet trolls have been making a ridiculous claim about CPAC sending some secret signals of support to Neo-Nazis based on their stage shape. As you and I both know, nothing is further from the truth: every single year, CPAC bends over backward to support and encourage the Jewish community to join the conference and embraces us warmly.
Please show them some support by pre-registering for CPAC 2022, which I think will be our largest yet! Pre-registering will show CPAC that our community stands with them and appreciates all they do.
