Wacky environmental extremist takes hostages at Discovery channel headquarters – who will be blamed?

James J. Lee, a left-wing environmental extremist, walked into the Maryland headquarters of the Discovery Channel with a handgun and explosives wrapped around his body. There he took hostages and made demands to the network in regards to their programming. Evidently Mr. Lee didn’t feel that Discovery was doing their part to save the planet.

Fortunately it ended well with no hostages being harmed and Mr. Lee put out of his misery by Montgomery County police. Among other extreme beliefs, Mr. Lee believed that humans were destroying the planet (I wonder where he could have heard that?) and should not be allowed to further procreate. If only his parents felt the same way back in the day.

Lee apparently posted some of his insane ramblings on the Internet. In one heartwarming post he wrote the following:

“Nothing is more important than saving … the Lions, Tigers, Giraffes, Elephants, Froggies, Turtles, Apes, Raccoons, Beetles, Ants, Sharks, Bears, and, of course, the Squirrels. The humans? The planet does not need humans.”

Mr. Lee should take solace that through his actions today, he managed to thin the herd just a teeny bit. He should have saved the hostages and their families a lot of anguish and jumped in front of a freight train long ago. If I’m being a bit harsh on Mr. Lee, it’s because I despise left-wing radicals who never practice what they preach. It’s always everyone else who needs to change; others who need to make sacrifices. Much like the despicable Al Gore who lectures the rest of us while living in a 20 room mansion and flying all over the world on a private jet. Oh, I’m sorry…it’s OK because Al buys “carbon offsets” – I almost forgot!

Speaking of Al Gore, Mr. Lee evidently had his “environmental awakening” after he watched Al Gore’s brilliant scientific documentary, An Inconvenient Truth. Way to go Al!

So…will the left-wing hypocrites on MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, and NPR blame Al Gore for Mr. Lee’s actions, and ultimately his death? Will they wring their hands about the exaggerations, distortions, and outright lies that are spouted daily by the progressive establishment in regards to the environment? Will they show grave concern over the fact that American children are being indoctrinated with these lies? Will they take any responsibility for people like Mr. Lee going off the deep end?

After all, Rush Limbaugh got blamed for the Oklahoma City bombing by none other than William Jefferson Clinton. It’s Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, etc. who get blamed for fanning the flames of anti-government sentiment. It’s the NRA that gets blamed whenever someone who isn’t a Democrat or a minority goes on a murderous shooting spree with an assault weapon.

George Bush, Dick Cheney, and Sarah Palin get blamed for everything else.

I heard Alan Colmes has been adamantly insisting that Lee was rightwing because he was against anchor babies. If that’s not desperately grasping at straws I don’t know what is.

Clomes has really gone off the deep end recently with this and defending the Ground zero mosque. Suddenly, he and other leftists give a damn about “private property” rights. If you had some sort of “endangered” snail on your property, then Colmes and his ilk would side with the snail against your property rights. Not only does Alan Colmes make my blood boil, but he also makes my stomach churn. I usually wind up putting my remote control to good use when I see his ugly mug.
