[Hostage taker] James Lee was linked to a manifesto that was posted on the internet, a source close to the investigation told CNN.Read it here.
The angry manifesto repeatedly refers to humans as "filth" and demands that the Discovery Channel "stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants."
"Civilization must be exposed for the filth it is," the 1,149-word statement says.
Lee said he began his crusade to save the planet after being laid off from his job in San Diego and reading "Ishmael," a novel by Daniel Quinn about a gorilla that tells a man what it is like to live in captivity in a world where humans exploit natural resources.
Lee said he then felt an "awakening," watched former Vice President Al Gore's documentary "An Inconvenient Truth," and decided he had been doing too little to protect the environment.
Time and again lefties in the press tell us that conservative talk shows and books incite a climate of violence that encourages weak-minded people to commit acts of destruction, and each time it turns out that the violence was perpetrated by left wingers. Now we have the testimony of the maniac to the effect that he was inspired by Al Gore's apocalyptic environmentalist screed. Will this give the MSM reason to question the validity of their anti-conservative narrative? Nah!
Richard Morrison has a full discussion of the environmental terrorist's mindset here.
We should recognize that by far the biggest domestic terrorist threat emanates not from religious groups but from the environmentalist movement.
