I blame President Obama, Al Gore, James Cameron and all the other libtards who push the man-made myth of global warming/climate change for pushing this guy over the edge and forcing him to resort to violence. Yes, I am using a liberal media tactic against them.
In typical liberal fashion, a eco-terrorist who wants to save the world has taken hostages while wearing reported pipe bombs. This is the liberal mind at work. Let’s save the planet by blowing up humans.
When will Chris Matthews do a special on eco-terrorism and the radical left?
The Associated Press reports, via The Daily Caller:
SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) — A man upset with the Discovery Channel’s environmental programming took several people hostage at gunpoint at the company’s headquarters Wednesday while wearing canisters strapped to his body, officials said.
Police were negotiating by phone with the gunman, who burst into the suburban Washington building about 1 p.m. waving a handgun.
The gunman took what Montgomery County Police Chief Thomas Manger described as a “small number of hostages” but he did not say how many. He also did not say what the man wants or whether anyone was hurt.
Manger said most of the 1,900 people who work in the building were able to get out safely.
A law enforcement official speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing said authorities have identified James J. Lee as the likely suspect. Police believed he had a handgun but had not confirmed that he had explosives, the official said.
A different official, who spoke on condition of anonymity for the same reason, said Lee previously protested outside the building.
According to a story in The Gazette, which covers Montgomery County, Lee was arrested there in 2008 after throwing thousands of dollars in the air outside the building.
Lee said he planned the protest because Discovery’s programming had little to do with saving the planet. He was identified then as being from San Diego, Calif., although he gave a local address of a homeless shelter.
At the trial, he said he began working to save the planet after being laid off from his job in San Diego. He said he was inspired by “Ishmael,” a novel by environmentalist Daniel Quinn and by former Vice President Al Gore’s documentary “An Inconvenient Truth.”
A website registered to Lee criticized Discovery and announced plans for the protest in January 2008: “These guys have been very sneaky and deceptive as to their contribution to the planetary problems. Just look at their ‘new’ show about saving the planet, ‘Planet Green,’ to me, it’s just another show about more PRODUCTS to make MONEY, not about actual solutions. We can’t let them get away with doing it anymore.”
