As those of you who have televisions or Twitters probably know, there's an armed hostage situation at Discovery Channel headquarters in Silver Spring, Md., just across the line from Washington, D.C. Initial reports, which police officials are not confirming, are that the hostage taker is a 42-year-old San Diego resident named James Jay Lee, who has apparently thrown up 11 demands online, in a warped environmentalist manifesto that radiates with rage against the "human filth" of population. Excerpt:
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. […]
6. Find solutions for Global Warming, Automotive pollution, International Trade, factory pollution, and the whole blasted human economy. Find ways so that people don't build more housing pollution which destroys the environment to make way for more human filth! Find solutions so that people stop breeding as well as stopping using Oil in order to REVERSE Global warming and the destruction of the planet!
7. Develop shows that mention the Malthusian sciences about how food production leads to the overpopulation of the Human race. Talk about Evolution. Talk about Malthus and Darwin until it sinks into the stupid people's brains until they get it!! […]
11. You're also going to find solutions for unemployment and housing. All these unemployed people makes me think the US is headed toward more war.
Lee apparently has a history of hating on the Discovery Channel. I highly recommend Fox News' Shep Smith right now.
