Just a sampling from that article's FB comment thread:

"This is hateful, disgusting and, above all TASTELESS! Mark my words, The Onion will be hemorrhaging subscribers over this!"

"I know this is a joke but have to remember a few more white people have died from AIDs then 50 and no vaccine for it yet. I think it's proven that AIDs came out of this same region of Africa and was started from natives having sex with Apes / Monkeys"

"A disgusting and revolting post."

"Not funny, what is going on is a tragedy, that does not distinguish between white or black people...."

Some of the locals blame health workers for the outbreak and forcibly keep them out of their villages. The CIA may have pulled one over on them with AIDS, but this time, they are prepared for western generated diseases.

Thats not half as bad as some of the comments on real articles. The volume of "just keep them all in Africa and let it do its job" type shit is through the roof.

Ebola should be tested in in gay bars.


Quote:
Turn it loose in the ghetto.


Quote:
Just what we need is these damn infected caramel monkeys and chimpanzees coming into my country and infecting me, and my children.


Human beings, of the 21st century even.

I should add "Ebola" to the list of articles I click on just to read the comments. Already on that list are global warming, evolution, abortion, immigration and anything gay related.

CNN.com comments:

"If the book of Revelations is accurate 1/3 of the population of earth will die by plagues. The earth has a current population of approximately 7 billion so that would mean approximately 233 billion people will die from plagues."

"It started with an African man raping an ape."

"ILLEGALS NOW EBOLA.....COMING IN THROUGH OUR BORDERS."

"I sure hope that when these two die (and they will), they are not allowed to be buried. They need to be disposed of properly."

"i rather live in a post apocalypse than Obama's america."

I've often wondered if internet comment boards are the same few thousand psychos just working really hard, or if that's just how everyone gets their crazy out.

If James Brown had ever made a record called Turn it Loose in the Ghetto, the world would be a different place today.

It amazes me how much of the discussion is becoming "Relax, for fuck's sake! It's not coming HERE, or anything," instead of "Oh, shit, it's in Lagos, and there are 20 million people there."

On the rare occasion when we do watch a movie, I pace endlessly.
