It seems someone must have declared an ecoterror jihad. First we have warmers gluing themselves to banks, then we get Greenpeace trying a hostile takeover of an oil drilling rig off the coast of Greenland and now we have a greentard gone mad taking over the Discovery Channel building. If there a full green cheese moon this month or something? Did someone declare an Ecoterror Jihad? Should Homeland Security be checking into the “Eco Taliban?”
It appears to me that what we have going on here could be the forefront of a new wave of warmer desperation and despair because people are not falling for the anthropogenic global warming BS anymore. Are they getting so desperate that violence may become their main path to getting the world to genuflect to the Church of Global Warming? Think about it.
We have Al Gore and others who have admitted defeat on getting cap & trade passed this year in Congress. Obama appears to have stuck his head in the sand on this issue (not to mention others). The Chicago Climate Exchange (trading carbon credits) is imploding as we watch (along with Al Gore’s wallet). The UN has realized that the carbon trading scheme in Europe is about as corrupt as it gets with a $2.7 billion scam. The IPCC has been bitch-slapped by the IAC due to a lot of bad science, fraud, mismanagement and conflicts of interest surrounding their last report in 2007. The UN (justifiably) can’t get anyone to agree on much of anything about global warming or what to do or not to do about it, and the warmers appear to be losing it, perhaps big time.
Today we hit a new low in ecoterror with James J. Lee arming himself and taking over the Discovery Channel building in Silver Spring, Maryland in a desperate effort to have the Discovery Channel do his bidding. You can read his manifesto below, taken from his website Save The Planet Protest. I took a screenshot of this as I don’t expect that link will be working much longer.
This is a rather amazing set of demands. We get demands and rantings such as:
- “The Discovery Channel and it’s affiliate channels MUST have daily television programs at prime time slots based on Daniel Quinn’s “My Ishmael” pages 207-212 where solutions to save the planet would be done in the same way as the Industrial Revolution was done, by people building on each other’s inventive ideas.”
- “Focus must be given on how people can live WITHOUT giving birth to more filthy human children since those new additions continue pollution and are pollution.”
- “All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions the same way as the Industrial Revolution was done, by people building on each other’s inventive ideas.”
- “All programs promoting War and the technology behind those must cease. (Talk about hypocritical thinking).”
- “Civilization must be exposed for the filth it is.”
- “Programs must be developed to find solutions to stopping ALL immigration pollution and the anchor baby filth that follows that.”
- “Talk about Malthus and Darwin until it sinks into the stupid people’s brains until they get it!!”
- “That means stopping the human race from breeding any more disgusting human babies!”
- “Humans are the most destructive, filthy, pollutive creatures around and are wrecking what’s left of the planet with their false morals and breeding culture.”
Obviously what we have here is a sick mind, perhaps the result of being bombarded with Green bullshit from various sources until he just couldn’t deal with it anymore and went off the deep end. Per CNN this could be a part of where the problem started…..
n a 2006 MySpace posting, Lee wrote: “I finished reading the Daniel Quinn books last month. It started off just as a recommendation from a girl who worked at a coffeehouse.
So who’s Daniel Quinn? Well you can go here and see the website Ishmael.org , see some of what he’s about, and judge for yourself. Obviously he’s an alarmist who likes stirring people like Lee up about things such as over-population, pollution and global warming. To quote from his biography on Wikipedia…..
While response to Ishmael was mostly very positive, Quinn inspired a great deal of controversy with his claim (most explicitly discussed in the appendix section of The Story of B) that since population growth is a function of food supply, sustained food aid to impoverished nations merely puts off and dramatically worsens a massive population-environment crisis. This crisis is born of a disconnect between local humans and the local habitat with its food. Quinn points out that ending this disconnect is a proven way to avoid famines.
I think that explains a lot about where Mr. Lee got some of the ideas put forth in his demands to Discovery Channel regarding overpopulation problems and issues he seems to have with human reproduction. Perhaps he wanted to end a few people’s “disconnect.”
Is this the prototype ecoterrorist? Is this what organizations such as Greenpeace want running about? Ecoterrorst who will shoot or blow up people, companies and organizations who don’t follow their green dogma? Is this what people like Al Gore are creating?
The reason I mention the above is that according to this article from AP…..
At Lee’s trial, The Gazette of Montgomery County reported, Lee 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.”
Evidently watching some programs on the Discovery channel also helped create this mindset and his attack on the Discovery Channel itself…..
“The Discovery Channel produces many so-called ‘Environmental Programs’ supposedly there to save the planet,” Lee said in an ad he took out in a Washington newspaper to promote the protest. “But the truth is things are getting WORSE! Their programs are causing more harm than good.”
I’d bet programs like “Whale Wars” didn’t help his mindset either. It wouldn’t be a stretch to surmise this show may have given him some ideas about going on the attack against society. Kind of like monkey see, monkey do. Whaling ship or TV station, what’s the difference to someone like James Lee?
One could also speculate as to whether things emanating from Greenpeace such as: “We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work.” may have played into the mindset of this ecoterrorist.
Of course, no one will be prosecuted for putting such thoughts into this man’s mind. Greenpeace will continue harassing whaling ships, Al Gore will perhaps continue harassing masseuses, etc. After all, it’s not their fault the got him so stirred up that he took over the Discovery Channel building and was killed by the police, now is it?
I guess you could term this “Anthropogenic CO2 Insanity.” A term I hope we don’t start using with more frequency. I have to wonder if the “Eco Taliban” aren’t calling for “Eco Jihad” against innocent people. Time will tell.
