James Jay Lee: Discovery Channel gunman (photos, video)

September 1, 2010

James Jay Lee, the Discovery Channel gunman, has been identified as the man who is holding the network’s employees hostage in Silver Spring, Maryland. It is being reported that Lee is armed with a gun and is in possession of explosives! But Lee is no stranger to causing trouble over at the network. It was back in 2008 that the protester was arrested for disorderly conduct after an intense protest against the network’s television programs. Read more about Lee and see photos here!

James Jay Lee, the Discovery Channel gunman, is holed up in the network’s headquarters. Various news outlets are reporting that the man, who is no stranger to trouble, is currently inside the building with a gun and explosives. We are also hearing that the gunman may have at least one individual in his possession.

An employee has been quoted as telling a local news station in MD, “We heard, pop, pop, pop, pop pop.” While a day care center in the Discovery building has been evacuated, there are limited details on the safety of

We are hearing that the SWAT team is currently trying to communicate with the gunman.

So what do we know about Lee?

According to his alleged website called Savetheplanetprotest.com, Lee lists 11 different demands he is requesting the Discovery network to adhere to. And let me tell you, he is specific in his requests. In a few of his listed requirements his writes,

1. “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. A game show format contest would be in order. Perhaps also forums of leading scientists who understand and agree with the Malthus-Darwin science and the problem of human overpopulation. Do both. Do all until something WORKS and the natural world starts improving and human civilization building STOPS and is reversed! MAKE IT INTERESTING SO PEOPLE WATCH AND APPLY SOLUTIONS!!!!”

2. All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions. In those programs’ places, programs encouraging human sterilization and infertility must be pushed. All former pro-birth programs must now push in the direction of stopping human birth, not encouraging it.

3. All programs promoting War and the technology behind those must cease. There is no sense in advertising weapons of mass-destruction anymore. Instead, talk about ways to disassemble civilization and concentrate the message in finding SOLUTIONS to solving global military mechanized conflict. Again, solutions solutions instead of just repeating the same old wars with newer weapons. Also, keep out the fraudulent peace movements. They are liars and fakes and had no real intention of ending the wars. ALL OF THEM ARE FAKE! On one hand, they claim they want the wars to end, on the other, they are demanding the human population increase. World War II had 2 Billion humans and after that war, the people decided that tripling the population would assure peace. WTF??? STUPIDITY! MORE HUMANS EQUALS MORE WAR!”

The man seriously has some pent up anger towards Discovery for whatever reason. I’m guessing he isn’t a fan of Kate Plus 8, either?

Here’s to hoping that local officials get James Jay Lee before he takes any casualties.

    As a mass communication majro, I do agree with him. Networks produce garbage like Kate Plus 8 and promote destructive and self-indulgent behaviors. Over-popultaion is a problem and people need to make room for unwanted children in the world instead of procreating.

    Even though he has disapproving views towards the network, that doesn’t give him the right to freak out!

    It’s Silver Spring”, NOT “Silver SpringS”. *That’s* in Florida.

    It’s one thing to say that TV shows are stupid. It’s another to pretend that the Discovery Channel is like mass media.
    It’s even another to think that it’s anyone’s fault but ours.
    So I don’t agree with this whackjob.

    This is America, he has the right to do what he wants as long as he remembers that with his actions come consequences.
    Sometimes it takes someone to do something like this before people start paying attention or realizing what is going on around them.
    Otherwise, most of us… are nothing but sheeple.

    he would have done better at the Ho-Tel.

    Guess i must be a sicko though to say i sympathise with his cause. THey are plastering him as a wacko, but everything he did up until that point was legitimate and worthy of a ‘good concerned citizen’ acolade. Now that he has stepped over the line he and his thoughts are nothing other than symptons of mental illness.

    He certainly made me think, UNLIKE THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL, which is just another arm of the PROPOGANDA CHANNEL designed to APEASE the masses, nothing more.
