During the final night of the 2016 Republican National Convention, PayPal cofounder and Facebook investor Peter Thiel delivered a highly anticipated speech to the tens of thousands in attendance and millions watching around the country.

The Silicon Valley billionaire stole the show and received multiple standing ovations.

But the Thiel’s biggest applause of the night came when he made a bold announcement to the Republican crowd that the liberal media didn’t want you to know.

After speaking about the liberal media perpetuating “fake culture wars” to distract from the “real economic issues”, Thiel told the audience, “I am proud to be gay!”

The crowd rose to its feet, giving Thiel a standing ovation.

He continued, “I am proud to be a Republican!”

The crowd’s roar erupted.

“And I am proud to be an American!” Thiel shouted over a deafening cheer of support, followed by chants of, “USA! USA! USA!”

For years, the liberal media has attempted to sell the public on a lie that you can’t support the Republican Party if you are gay.

If that were the case, then why would someone like Peter Thiel, a billionaire technology guru – who is gay – endorse the Republican nominee, Donald Trump?

It doesn’t fit the criteria for the liberal media’s propaganda.

Which is exactly why they’re terrified of Peter Thiel and Donald Trump and what they represent.

Recently, it became publicly known that Peter Thiel funded Hulk Hogan’s lawsuit against the liberal media website company, Gawker, to the tune of $15 million.

Gawker had published a secretly recorded sex tape online which included Hogan.

Hogan won the lawsuit, and Gawker was forced to file bankruptcy.  Reports indicate its founder may file personal bankruptcy.

Gawker had previously targeted Thiel also, publishing claims against his wishes that he was gay.  This would explain why he spent millions of dollars secretly funding Hogan’s lawsuit.

Thiel got his revenge.  And after his speech at the RNC, it’s apparent he’s showing no sign of letting up in his fight against the liberal media.
