Commentary: Hate has a familiar face in Mel Gibson

Radar Online reported on July 1 that Mel Gibson's estranged girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, had taped him in the throes of a profanely and profoundly hateful rant. He reportedly called Grigorieva, with whom he has an infant daughter, a "whore," a "bitch" and a particularly vulgar term for the female pudendum that begins with "c." Then there is this pungent quote: "You look like a f------ pig in heat and if you get raped by a pack of n------ it will be your fault." You may think the most damning word in that quote is the N-word. Actually, it's just before that. After all, only animals hunt in packs.
