Nazi salute being flashed at the conference

Neo-Nazis reportedly attended the key annual conservative gathering in the US – where Trump gave the keynote speech – with one giving a Nazi salute on camera.

They discussed “race science” and antisemitic conspiracy theories as they mingled at the Young Republican Mixer at the Conservative Political Action Committee on Friday evening, NBC news reported.

Ryan Sanchez, who was previously a member of the Nazi “Rise Above Movement,” took photos and videos of himself with an official badge.

He was filmed giving a Nazi salute in the lobby of the conference hotel.

In previous years, CPAC has ejected well-known Nazis and white supremacists such as Nick Fuentes.

CPAC called the report “false, misleading, and grossly manipulative”.

“CPAC has made it absolutely clear that we stand with Israel and the Jewish people… and against the hatred of Jews.

“Our board and international partners unanimously passed a resolution this week reiterating that strong, clear, and unequivocal position.

“We hosted a special event at CPAC in celebration of and solidarity with Israel, and we are leading an ongoing initiative as an organisation supporting Israel.

“When we come across someone at CPAC peddling any kind of antisemitism, we deal with them immediately.

“Knowing this, NBC weaved together lies and fabrications to create a false perception, and we won’t stand by idly while NBC engages in wilful misinformation.”
