J’en avait déjà parlé avant, ce n’était qu’une question de temps. Hier, James J. Lee, un militant environnementaliste a pris des otages dans les bureaux de Discovery Channel et a finalement été abattu par les policiers. Remarquez que nos bons médias écolo-gauchistes et biaisés n’en ont pour ainsi dire pas parlé. Pour se renseigner, il faut regarder les médias américains ou européens. Si au Québec ils finissent par en parler, ils vont soit le défendre, ou alors simplement dire qu’il était désaxé et ne savait pas ce qu’il faisait, et qu’il n’est pas représentatif du mouvement écolo…
Fallait s’y attendre à force de brainwasher les gens que le nature et parfaite et que l’humain est le cancer de la planète. Que l’humain est responsable de tout le mal qui arrive (comme les changements climatiques). Quand une fillette noie un chiot, elle mériterait la mort, mais quand un ours polaire éventre un bébé phoque, c’est correct? Les écolo-religieux voient tout en noir et blanc.
James J. Lee divided the world into good and bad. According to his writings on a Web site he created, people were bad, especially « parasitic » babies.
Animals and bugs were good, Lee wrote. But war was bad, along with global warming, pollution and international trade.
As for civilization?
The environmental militant who was killed Wednesday at the end of a tense hostage standoff at Discovery Communications headquarters in downtown Silver Spring, termed it « filth. »
Lee, 43, who once threw money to bystanders as a protest along a Silver Spring street and who believed that the world would be better off without people, was shot by police after the almost four-hour standoff. Police have not publicly named Lee, but several local and federal law enforcement sources identified him as the gunman.
Lee held a grudge against Discovery, viewing the network as a purveyor of ideas he considered environmentally destructive and staging protests outside its headquarters, according to authorities and court records. Yet he got little farther than the lobby of the vast complex while the company alerted its thousands of employees and urged them to stay in locked offices and then evacuate using a designated stairwell.
Lee, whose environmental creed was spread across the Internet in manifestoes and blog posts, was killed at 4:48 p.m. after he stalked into the building with a handgun, took three hostages and later pointed his gun at one of them, said Montgomery County Police Chief J. Thomas Manger.
The incident, in the headquarters of the global television corporation just outside Washington, sent hundreds of employees streaming for safety into the afternoon heat without their purses, wallets and other personal items. It snarled traffic and riveted media audiences. Police said Lee had four makeshift explosive devices strapped to his body, and was wielding a gun. He entered the building about 1 p.m.
« We are running out of time to save this planet and the Discovery Channel is a big part of the problem, » he wrote. « Instead of showing successful solutions, their broadcast programs seem to be doing the opposite. »
Many of his notions seem to stem from his reading of author Daniel Quinn’s novel « My Ishmael, » about a telepathic ape who teams with a 12-year-old girl to save the planet.
« Saving the Planet means . . . decreasing the Human population. That means stopping the human race from breeding any more disgusting human babies! »
Lee argued that « nothing is more important » than saving animals: « The Lions, Tigers, Giraffes, Elephants, Froggies, Turtles, Apes, Raccoons, Beetles, Ants, Sharks, Bears, and, of course, the Squirrels. »
« The planet does not need humans. »
Lee was arrested in 2008 while throwing thousands of dollars into the air outside the Discovery building, creating an atmosphere security guards believed was unsafe, according to a report in the Gazette newspaper at the time.
He said the idea was to show that »money means nothing. Money is trash. » He paid local homeless people to join his protest and hold signs. He gave the loudest people cash bonuses and organized an essay contest, in which he paid $20 for submissions and « periodically awarded an essayist $1,000, » according to a police account.
An Internet video of the money-throwing scene shows cash flying through the air and people chasing it.
The judge in the case, calling the incident « foolish, » sentenced Lee to six months of supervised probation, fined him $500 and warned him he could face up to two months in jail if he went within 500 feet of the building.
Lee, who represented himself in Silver Spring’s District Court, was evaluated by state psychiatrists. Lee said, »They couldn’t find anything wrong with me. » His probation ended Monday, officials said
