I've noticed that it's impossible to have a discussion on Yahoo comments or many other news sites because the entire site is now troll bait for the extremist right wing. There is nothing left on the comments to every single article except racist, myogynistic, homophobic, and generally idiotic comments. Some of them get very vile and threatening. Every article turns into an anti-Obama rant. What is the deal with these people? Do they actually hold these views in real life? Are they paid by right wing propaganda sources? I have a hard time wrapping my head around these people, how high of a percentage of our society do they actually represent? It's kinda scary. I actually had one user tell me they hope we have another civil war so they can shoot liberals like me and my family in the face. Obviously it's totally anonymous, so any threat cannot possibly be directed at you personally so it's easy to laugh it off. But what the hell is going on with the web? It's like a giant convention of mentally ill people.
