All actual politics and issues aside…are these people complete morons? You are already looking absolutely horrible on a national level, WHY would you ever think that it was a good idea to arrest a 90-year-old HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR. That is PR suicide. People might have been having trouble sympathizing with an 18-year-old black kid (because racism), but if there is one group that gets unwavering sympathy from the majority of the population, it’s Holocaust survivors (and of course rightfully so). As soon as those words appear, this woman is instantly more sympathetic than the people arresting her for peacefully protesting, and her cause is presented as more sympathetic by association.
