PATHETIC: Look how ‘tolerant’ liberals responded to RNC’s pro-LGBT comments

Last night, both Peter Thiel and Donald Trump’s speeches marked a pivot in the Republican Party’s attitude in one of the culture wars.

PayPal co-founder and tech billionaire Peter Thiel drew applause when he said, “I am proud to be gay, I am proud to be a Republican, but most of all, I am proud to be an American.” Donald Trump promised to protect the LGBT community from the foreign ideology of radical Islam — that, too, drawing applause from the audience. He responded to the applause by saying that “it’s so nice” to hear Republicans cheering that statement.

Who could be outraged by those comments? Liberals of course. Here’s just a sampling of the responses the tolerant left had.

Hey, remember when Barack Obama was against gay marriage before he supported it? Was he called a “hypocrite” by his liberal friends? Was he accused of flip-flopping? Of course not — he “evolved.”

Donald Trump supported gay marriage before Obama did — but he’s not their ally. OK then.

The “logic” behind most of the tweets I saw basically boiled down to: Republicans in the past have opposed gay rights, therefore they can never change their mind… or something. It’s not like Donald Trump is exactly a member of the Republican establishment regardless.

By this type of liberal “logic,” does that mean that Democrats can’t talk about Civil Rights because they once supported slavery?
