I don't understand why gov is so easy riled by that and why is reacting like crazy. That new gov is sh.. methinks.
a] I think the government has always condemned this sort of thing - it's just troublemakers and lying media who try to act like they don't care about it and allow it to go on unpunished. They weren't really riled by it - they had to react. I know a few yobs being stupid might not be a big deal, but can you imagine if they had said nothing about it? Think of the media storm, not just from anti-Polish domestic media but also the foreign media, who were just waiting for the government to do nothing, so they could say that this must mean they agree with it.
b] So you don't like this government or just don't like it since the reconstruction?
Why is this the best time?
Well this isn't the best time. There was no best time. They were probably looking for a perfect time to release the footage and hit PiS hard, but couldn't find it, so after holding it for almost a year, they just decided, they might as well release it.
In hindsight, they're probably kicking themselves that they didn't release it just after the Polish Independence March. That probably would have been the 'best' time, when Poland was being attacked for having anti-Semites in the march.
To be perfectly honest, most of the filmed footage I saw looked staged, as if they were performing for a camera.
This shouldn't be ruled out.
