Mel's an Abuser -- Why Isn't He Being Crucified for it?

Is Mel Gibson toast in Hollywood now that his outrageous rants against his former lover have been outed?

But why is that the world's #1 concern? Why is there no massive outrage against the vicious verbal abuse that Mel inflicted upon the mother of his 8-month-old daughter, Lucia?

He threatened to “bury her in the rose garden,” hit her with a baseball bat on the side of the head, “burn the f***king house down,” he called her a “whore,” “prostitute” and “c**t” repeatedly, told her she was an “idiot,” “worthless,” that she “deserved” to have had her teeth knocked out,” that she looked “like a f**cking pig in heat.” He even screamed at her that “if you get raped by a pack of n*****s, it will be your fault!”

The viciousness of the verbal abuse is beyond disgusting and should offend ANY person — male or female who is NOT a misogynist themselves.

So then why is there utter silence from women’s groups, the Anti-Defamation League, even the White House? Hey President Obama, had a few words to say about Tiger Woods, why not about a national celebrity who’s insulted African Americans, Latinos, Jews and WOMEN?
