Billionaire Homocon Peter Thiel: The Major Money Man Behind Sen. Ted Cruz

Homocon billionaire Peter Thiel, who co-founded PayPal and who hosted Ann Coulter in his Manhattan apartment for a GOProud fundraiser, is one of the largest financial backers of Sen. Ted Cruz.  Tech site Valleywag goes off:
It's an odd marriage of interests, the sort Cruz otherwise opposes as a matter of principle: Peter Thiel is a pot-smoking gay man, which makes him the kind of person Cruz supporters would like to launch into some sort of Martian exile. But Thiel is also, crucially, a massively rich bussinessman, which is enough for Cruz to shelve his Tea Party druthers and accept hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Silicon Valley luminary. Adjacent bigots have yelled at Cruz for pocketing Thiel's cash, but he has every reason to ignore them: last year, Thiel gave $2 million to Club for Growth, a SuperPAC that in turn poured over $600,000 into Cruz's (successful) senatorial run. Club for Growth is still a vocal supporter of Cruz as he's flailed and railed against Obamacare. Is it lunacy to be the most loyal supporter of a man who thinks you don't deserve equal protection under the law? No crazier than paying kids to drop out of school, cure death, or create a floating libertarian ocean utopia.
RELATED: Thiel has authored an anti-diversity book which claims that America's downfall began when women got the vote. His "seasteading" project intends to create floating city-states that are exempt from international law, taxes, banking regulations, and employment protections.
