A cat keeps its claws inside until it meets a mouse.

In the town hall meetings about health care reform, the depth of anger and animosity between people who speak on behalf of “the American people” and the politicians is difficult to comprehend. The health care reform debates are just excuses for people to express their hate. Comparing the president to Adolf Hitler, or wishing death to him and to his family is just unacceptable.

It is good to disagree in a civil way in a democracy. The media is to blame for not putting a spotlight on the hate. About those who are fueling hate for political gain, we are not hearing a word of condemnation. It is just shameful. As the Bateke of Gabon say, “A cat keeps its claws inside until it meets a mouse.”
