Um... The Mittani is a goon... you know that Something Awful derived group... The comments he expressed and attitude he demonstrated are in the finest tradition of that group. I find it hard to be surprised.
Tempest ... meet the tea cup.
The only surprising thing is that the rest of you find this at all surprising or abnormal (for goons). It demonstrates a level of naivety about what that group's philosophy and attitudes towards all persons not of that group really is. And about the way CCP actively encourages the type to join EVE online and play in their game. Yeash people. There's a reason EVE will never grow beyond a certain point and will always remain a niche game. Actively encouraging people who's core attitudes were amply demonstrated by The Mittani in that fanfest panel to play the game is the primary reason EVE's population will remain smaller than it's potential. The problem with the "we encourage that behavior in game only" point of view is that it invites people who have those attitudes in real life to join and play your game. It can not be surprising that eventually these types of people show their true colors in public.
To quote the oft used meme: HTFU people.
