This. People have always been intolerant opinionated closed-minded rhetoric shouters. Human nature doesn't change, but technology does. People used to have to wait until 6 pm or so to find out what broad social trends Bill O'Reilly says to get offended and outraged about next, but now you can just go online anytime.
