My god, have you guys heard that some crazy person named James Jay Lee has taken over the Discovery Channel building in Silver Springs, MD with explosives strapped to his chest? This is particularly terrifying because my dad lives/works right around there, but is just generally f*cked up because who holds Discovery Channel employees hostage?? The same guy who’s held protests there in the past, apparently, and whose manifesto includes lines like “All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions,”
“Youre also going to find solutions for unemployment and housing. All these unemployed people makes me think the US is headed toward more war.”
Oh also, one of his biggest influences is Al Gore‘s An Inconvenient Truth, just in case you automatically assumed this was some right-wing nutjob.
James is making those tea party protesters look positively civil. We’ll be updating this story as we get more information.
