I Guess He Wasn't A Fan of Mythbusters

James Jay Lee, the Discovery Channel hostage taker, is was apparently a radical, leftwing, eco-Nutjob.

Some choice quotes from a Manifesto and a protest flyer of his:

"2. All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions. In those programs' places, programs encouraging human sterilization and infertility must be pushed. All former pro-birth programs must now push in the direction of stopping human birth, not encouraging it."

"4. Civilization must be exposed for the filth it is. That, and all its disgusting religious-cultural roots and greed. Broadcast this message until the pollution in the planet is reversed and the human population goes down! This is your obligation. If you think it isn't, then get hell off the planet! Breathe Oil! It is the moral obligation of everyone living otherwise what good are they??"

"We are running out of time to save this planet and the Discovery Channel is a big part of the problem, not the solution. Instead of showing successful solutions, their broadcast programs seem to be doing the opposite. Shows like “Cash Cab” and “Dirty Jobs” serve as diversions to keep the focus off what is really important, which is Global Warming and Animal Extinction. Why do they broadcast a show like “Future Weapons” that only promise to destroy the planet even more? And their new lineup “Planet Green” is all about more products and other substandard solutions. Do we really need shows like these when the planet is in crisis? No, instead the focus should be on coming up with new formulas that actually work. Why would the broadcasters and programmers focus more on the destruction of the planet rather than saving it?"

Sounds like this guy really did reject our reality and substitute his own.



EDIT:
Politically incorrect, but here are some choice 'tweets from Jim Geraghty of National Review Online on the Discovery Channel Hostage taker:

"All I'm saying, Montgomery County Sheriff's Office Special Response Team, is that the Sig Sauer 556 rifle is a fine, fine weapon."
"This guy's rampage is near a day care center? F*** him, shoot to kill."
"Discovery channel gunman James Lee was shot at 4:48 p.m., because even the SWAT team doesn't want to fight rush hour traffic."
"Somebody on the Special Response Team just saved Montgomery County taxpayers a great deal in court costs."

Wow.  James Jay Lee is the nutcase who keeps on giving.

The Blast has a rundown of some of the whackjob postings he's made on the internet.
