Environmentalist Takes Hostages And Is Killed By Police

Some crazy guy took hostages at the Discovery Channel headquarters in California, spouting nonsense about saving the earth.

From Fox News:

“All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions,” the list of demands read.

“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.”

He did end up ridding the world of one person, himself.  I guess he achieved his goal, if only in a small way.

The news report states that at a previous trial in which he was charged with disturbing the peace he said:

(I) began working to save the planet after being laid off from his job in San Diego. He said he was inspired by “Ishmael,” a novel by environmentalist Daniel Quinn and by former Vice President Al Gore’s documentary “An Inconvenient Truth.”

Now, if I were looking for any excuse to blame anyone but the perpetrator, like many liberals, I might say that Daniel Quinn and Al Gore are responsible for the crime that was committed. I might say that those two men obviously created their works of art to incite people to violence in the name of Mother Earth. I could also say the NBC/Universal is partly to blame because of their “green week” which they sponsor every year and require the writers of the shows to incorporate environmental plots.

I could say all of those things, but I won’t. What I will say is that this man who took those hostages and said these insane things was himself insane. He and he alone is to blame for his actions. I believe this because I have this weird value called individual responsibility.

If anyone out there believes that humans should start sterilizing ourselves I have a suggestion; take your argument to its logical conclusion and do away with yourself.
