DEPLORABLE Homocon Peter Thiel Donates $1.25 Million Dollars To Donald Trump’s Campaign

The New York Times reports:

Peter Thiel, true to his reputation as the most contrarian soul in Silicon Valley, is doubling down on Donald J. Trump. The only prominent supporter of the Republican candidate in the high-tech community, Mr. Thiel is making his first donation in support of Mr. Trump’s election. He will give $1.25 million through a combination of super PAC donations and funds given directly to the campaign, a person close to the investor said on Saturday.

The donation puts the billionaire investor high on a very short list of big Trump contributors. One of the biggest donors is Robert Mercer of the hedge fund Renaissance Technologies. He and his daughter Rebekah Mercer have given $15.5 million in support of the Republican candidate’s election, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Geoffrey Palmer, a Los Angeles developer, has donated $2 million.

Mr. Thiel, who spoke at the Republican National Convention, apparently is unfazed by the storm around the candidate in the last week following the broadcasting of lewd conversations recorded by the syndicated program “Access Hollywood.” The source, who requested anonymity, said the investor feels the country needs fixing, and Mr. Trump can do it.

Thiel in the past supported the now defunct gay repugnant republican group GOProud.  In 2010, Thiel held Homocon 2010 for GOProud in his New York City apartment and invited  Ann Coulter, who is a friend of his.  Coulter later dedicated her new book, Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America.

In 2009, it was reported that Thiel helped fund closet-case right wing propagandist James O’Keefe’s “Taxpayers Clearing House” video – a satirical look at the politics behind the Wall Street bailout. O’Keefe went on to produce the ACORN undercover sting videos, but through a spokesperson, Thiel denied involvement in – or even knowledge of – the ACORN sting.

I’ll get the tar if you get the feathers.

  1. What’s deplorable is not that Thiel gave $1.25M to Trump’s campaign, but that anyone can contribute as much as they like to any campaign. So long as we permit the purchasing of elections, our government will remain the world’s largest whorehouse, where any action (or inaction) is available to anyone with deep enough pockets.

    If we want our government to be responsible to all of us, then we all have to pay to put our representatives in office. With public funds. Assholes like Thiel are the symptom, not the disease.

    It’d be nice to see feedback from someone who isn’t in the closet, like “commie pinkofag.”
