Liberal Journalists Seethe With Hatred on Twitter When Republicans Applaud Gay Speaker at RNC
Last night at the Republican convention, PayPal founder Peter Thiel got a standing ovation from the audience when he said he was a proud gay man, Republican and American.
This moment sent panic waves through liberal circles because the left thinks it owns the gay vote.
The reaction from some liberal journalists on Twitter was to lash out with hatred. Remember, these are the same people who regularly call conservatives “haters.”

Tolerance! Journos mock gay Republican Paypal co-founder Peter Thiel’s appearance at #RNCinCLE
Venture capitalist and Paypal co-founder Peter Thiel spoke at the Republican convention and delivered a rousing speech:
Being gay and a Republican just doesn’t fit the liberal mold, and some journos couldn’t let it slide:
They applaud Peter Thiel because they think conversion therapy will fix him.

It's nice that the convention applauded Peter Thiel, "proud to be gay." Now back to the regularly scheduled anti-LGBT programming…

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.

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.

What you are seeing here is fear.
The left doesn’t want Republicans to appear like loving and tolerant people because that completely destroys their narrative.
