WOW, that was cringe worthy on so many levels, lol.
Did you notice when the first Elders walked out towards him @ around 5:40, they kept turning around and looking behind them, to make sure all the other elders were coming out too, lol. They did not want to be the only ones walking out , they had to make sure all their "back up" was behind them.
Another thing I was thinking, was that all the other brothers that were NOT standing there in the "elder line", and were walking out of the convention, must have felt like they were "less important", since they didn't have an orange lanyard, and weren't asked to be in the "line" of clapping idiots singing. Probably walking out, with their heads hanging low in shame, saying, "Damn why wasn't I asked to come out", "I am walking with the woman and children, shit".
I have to say too, that the dude with the amplifier sure has BALLS to do that crap alone, and surrounded by a bunch of dudes in suits that would love to rip your heart out, and feed it to you. I am NOT saying what he did was brave, or commendable in any way, it just takes a set of balls to do that. He was clearly a bit off his rocker, and was saying nothing of merit. He sounded stupid, in all honesty, but DAMN, what a crazy and ballsy bastard.
For those that think this was "staged" in any way by the org, to show persecution or something, I really don't think so. You could kind of tell, it was one or two, crazy rogue, nut jobs, that really believed they were speaking "profoundly".
One last thought, the JW's will always justify acting this way, by getting a bit rough and in someones face, because they use the scripture of Jesus righteous indignation, when he flipped the tables of the merchants in the temple, and threw them out. Any JW will have that scripture in their head to justify getting little "handsy" with someone who is disrupting the "show".
Crazies on BOTH sides here.
