Nothing scares liberals more than when someone they consider to be one of them backs a Republican.
Such was the case Thursday night when PayPal co-founder, and gay American, Peter Thiel gave a speech at the Republican national convention.
Much to the dismay of many so-called “liberals,” Thiel, proclaimed he was proud to be both gay and a Republican. His proclamation was met with thunderous applause from the GOP audience.
But it didn’t take long, for left-wing “journalists” and others, to take a break from preaching “tolerance and acceptance” and launch into attack mode.

Peter Thiel conveniently omits mentioning he wants to wipe @Gawker off the face of the Earth.

Thiel got into some of that good stuff smuggled across the border before giving this speech.

I’m glad Peter Thiel thought ahead and did a lot of coke before this speech.

Great that Peter Thiel says he’s proud to be gay & American – also notable he funded lawsuits to bankrupt Gawker for writing he was gay.

They applaud Peter Thiel because they think conversion therapy will fix him.

Congrats to Peter Thiel on being the first openly admitted coke user at the RNC. Oh and I guess he’s also gay

I try not to throw around words like “traitor” often because I respect changing loyalties and ideals…but Peter Thiel is a fucking traitor.
