Micah, why would you even think the two situations were comparable?

[Micah then asks for clarification, to which Kelly replies,]

I was asking how these two "illegal" demonstrations were comparable
and what your point was in making such a comparison: "Americans were
cheering demonstrations in Iran that would be illegal in America. That
is, marching without a permit from the police got lots of people
arrested in NYC in 2004. But during the burst of international
solidarity around the #iranelection, very few people noted that what
we were supporting in Iran was illegal in America."
