Update 17:37 01/10/10 - Reports indicate that police have shot and killed James Lee, and released the hostages.
SILVER SPRING, Maryland, September 1, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Chaos erupted after at least one hostage was taken at the Silver Spring headquarters of the Discovery Channel by what appears to be a crazed radical environmentalist.
The armed man has reportedly demanded that Discovery Channel executives run programming geared toward stopping the propagation of "parasitic human infants" in order to save the planet from global warming and pollution.
In a document apparently authored by James J. Lee, identified by law enforcement as the gunman, Lee expresses his intention to force the network to discourage overpopulation and the "human filth" of new children, particularly among immigrant populations.
Discovery Channel employees first noticed Lee in February 2008, when he was arrested during a protest at the Discovery building. For his involvement in that protest he served two weeks in jail.
Lee, a San Diego resident according to some reports, has said he experienced an awakening when he watched former Vice President Al Gores environmental documentary An Inconvenient Truth," reports MSNBC.
Police Wednesday afternoon were engaged in negotiating the release of what has been reported to be as little as one and as many as three hostages by Lee, who was seen with a possible explosive device strapped to himself. No injuries have yet been reported.
A list of demands published on savetheplanetprotest.com, signed as "the demands and sayings of Lee," seeks programming from the TV station showing "how people can live WITHOUT giving birth to more filthy human children since those new additions continue pollution and are pollution."
"Saving the Planet means saving what's left of the non-human Wildlife," it states. "That means stopping the human race from breeding any more disgusting human babies! ... It is the responsiblity of everyone to preserve the planet they live on by not breeding any more children who will continue their filthy practices."
The manifesto emphasizes that immigrant populations and their "anchor baby filth" must also be stopped, and that Darwin's theory of evolution and the Malthusian theory of overpopulation must be reiterated "until it sinks into the stupid people's brains until they get it."
In addition, the document insists that the channel must "stop all shows glorifying human birthing" 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," it says, adding that civilization and "all its disgusting religious-cultural roots and greed" "must be exposed for the filth it is."
I'm guessing the MSM will either downplay or simply ignore this.
A trained person using a GUN stopped this terrorist today. A mean old gun......

Sure hope he has a green burial.
It’s the fault of the UN and the Norwegian Peace Prize Committee.
This guy and the Unibomber should be bunk buddies. They both think alike.
All I want to know, is has anyone seen Al Gore this afternoon?
...and Al Gore too.
I hope that the radical environmentalists recognize their responsibility in this, but it is unlikely.
This incident has the blood of Al Gore all over it.
This is all Al Gore’s fault.
I wonder if this guy’s activities made Obama’s terrorist list or will they just classify it as workplace violence.
May the Lord bless any families involved in this situation and grant them peace.
Wow. Al got his guy fired up . Ready to take action! Frigging lunatic. This Lee character was a nutcase too.
Famous members of the Al Gore Fan Club: First the Unabomber; and now this guy
The Democrats lose another vote.
They're starting to snap. Time to get more ammo.
This incident has the blood of Al Gore all over it.
He disMAAAAAAYED this countreh!
It’s been a half-hour and Shep Smith still hasn’t mentioned AlGore nor his Inconvenient Truth as this guy’s inspiration. Imagine the report if the guy was a TEA party member or a lifelong republican, or a church-going Bible-thumping white male.
He got it part right.
This is a perfect example of what environmentalism breeds.
They’re starting to snap. Time to get more ammo.
Good on ammo. Need to strip cosmoline, however.
I wonder why he didn’t appeal to Al Gore’s “Current TV” station to get all this programming done?
How will the media spin this? Maybe they will find out the guy once walked by a Catholic church and say “Man with Catholic ties shot by police in hostage situation”
Now he is going to have to worry about the over population of Hell, which just went up by one.
If the media kept telling us it was dangerous to produce a movie about Jesus because it would lead to attacks on Jews (ha! not one incident of antisemitism due to that movie, BTW, but the media keeps silent about the ACTUAL call for the killing of Jews by mooslems), why isn’t the same media telling us how dangerous anti-human “green” propaganda (such as Al Gore’s) is in the wake of the real violence is has inspired?
They will ignore it and call him “crazed” with no mention of his mental disorder.
Al Gore,,spreading hate.
He should be arrested like those jerks said conservative talk show host should have been.
I skimmed this freak’s manifesto. It’s so extreme that it reads almost like a clever parody of Environmental Wacko talking points. Definitely worth a look, if only as an insight into an evidently diseased mind.
But I guess there’s no reason to doubt James Lee was serious ... dead serious in the final event.
As no innocent people were hurt, it’s hard to imagine how this could have turned out better. At least we will be spared a trial that would have given Lee the spotlight and bully pulpit he evidently craved.
As they say out West “there’s some folks that need killin’. “
You have to wonder what excuse the presstitutes will use for burying the story later this week.
Al Gore could adapt this person’s manifesto into an award winning powerpoint presentation sequel of his blockbuster film! There’s still a large Democrat base that would buy tickets like hotcakes.
Good thing he wasn’t in a “Gun Free Zone”
Looks like they’re going to run with his desire to end immigration as a means of tying him to the right.
I’ll say it again. Our society faces many more radical threats from the left than we do from the right.
Hey, at least this was one Malthusian who wound up practicing what he preached.
Nancy-girl Shep Smith just can't spit out anything bad about this enviromaniacal hostage-taker.
I almost fell off my chair when Shep breathlessly announced in an alert that the guy was dead....describing the GoreNut as someone "who was interested in saving the planet."
Hey, Shep.....you're using up valuable oxygen on this planet, also. Take a hike.
No time for that. They're everywhere! EVERYWHERE!
I wish people would stop making that comparison; if it keeps up it's going to come back and bite our side. I was in LE at the time the Unabomber manifesto was released, and studied it at some length. While I'm not going to defend Kasczinski, there are some fundamental differences between him and Lee.
Lee is an outright leftist and sees(saw) humanity as the problem that needed to be eradicated. Kasczinski was certainly opposed to technology and industrialization, but he did so because he saw it as something that was enslaving mankind and impinging on individual liberty and the quality of human life. Lee is aligned with Al Gore. Kasczinski saw himself kind of like John Connor in Terminator. If you don't believe me, go back and read his manifesto where he decries leftism, political correctness, the cult of victimhood, etc., in terms much like many of us on the right. I'm not saying he was a conservative or libertarian...not by any stretch, but there are several lengthy tracts in his manifesto that you could post on FR, and most people here would be nodding their heads in agreement with it.
I guess abortions just weren’t happening quick enough for this atheist pinko envirofreak! “Yippee-ki-yay...”
I just throw my hands up some days.
Correction. The planet does not need him.
he is a racist who refers to black Marylnders in code
What’s the code, I’m not familiar with it.
How would one would arrange a green burial? Maybe there is a eco-nazi site that would enlighten us. Cremation wastes a LOT of fuel, caskets kill trees, etc. Maybe do like the ancient Plains Indians and take the dead away for the holy animals to eat?
He’s no different than an Islamic suicide jihadist.
They both come to the point they’re willing to die themselves. Whether it’s for a God or Planet.
Deluded fools, all of them.
Thank God nobody else was physically hurt.
I went to that site. Thank you, God, for making me a stone-hearted, right-wing nutjob who can’t stand this drivel.
