Two nearly identical pics, two nearly identical titles. Vastly different reaction.
Submission 1:
Russian teenager Olga Misik reading the Russian constitution while being surrounded by armed Russian riot police is one of the most powerful images of bravery against injustice and oppression I have seen. Reminds me of the Tiananmen Square Tank Man
Result:
67k upvotes, makes the front page, awarded Reddit Gold. Redditors praise the brave teenager for fighting against Russia.
Submission 2:
This lone US protester being surrounded by armed American riot police is one of the most powerful images of bravery against injustice and oppression I have seen. Reminds me of the Tienanmen Square Tank Man.
Result:
53% downvoted, OP insulted in the comments, protester insulted in the comments. "Cops just doing their job".
