"NO MORE BABIES!" the gunman wrote in his manifesto. "Civilization must be exposed for the filth it is. That, and all its disgusting religious-cultural roots and greed. Broadcast this message until the pollution in the planet is reversed and the human population goes down!"
These were the demands of James Lee, who, strapped with explosives and a rifle, entered the suburban Washington, D.C. headquarters of the Discovery Channel in September 2010 and took three hostages in a five-hour standoff.
Lee's crazed manifesto clearly echoes the environmental doomsaying of some of our politicians and many of our journalists. His screed, with the all caps declaration, "MORE HUMANS EQUALS MORE WAR!" could also have been cribbed from Planned Parenthood's founder, Margaret Sanger, who once wrote: "the old civilization defying nature's balancing has created an overpopulated world, with 'cold wars' threatening peaceful existence, for the fit and intelligent adults of our present civilization."
