James Lee, the Discovery Channel hostage taker, was one very, very disturbed man. Details about his suicidal mission in Silver Spring Md, as part of his Save the Planet Protest, continue to emerge, including his evident hatred for babies, especially families with many of them, which explains why he targeted Discovery-owned TLC. Though Lee was shot dead at the Discovery building today, police are still making chilling discoveries about him, including what he wrote on his MySpace page.
The page has already been taken offline, but here’s what he had written.
His page reveals that he’s an atheist and a Gemini and that his occupation is “research.” But he also includes this very matter-of-fact statement that turned out to be so tragically telling: “I don’t want kids.”
That backs up the shocking manifesto he sent to Discovery demanding that TLC eliminate shows glorifying multiple births: “Saving the Planet means saving what’s left of the non-human Wildlife by decreasing the Human population. That means stopping the human race from breeding any more disgusting human babies!”
Other MySpace details:
— He listed the Discovery Channel as one of his television interests, along with “The Shield,” “South Park,” “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy.”
— His favorite music was ’70s and ’80s, plus Spanish music.
— “Braveheart,” “Star Wars” and “Planet of the Apes” were among his favorite movies.
— Daniel Quinn, author of “Ishmael,” “My Ishmael” and “Story of B,” was one of his heroes. The other? James T. Kirk.
