Discovery Channel HQ Shooter James Lee Gets Results!

Bad Headline and Thesis: I'm going to let this stand, but note the correction -- this ad, while in fact featured on Discovery.com's Treehugger.com, is in fact from 2009, so my attempt to link this to James Lee is obviously, what's the term, chronologically challenged. Thanks to "Bomber" for checking on that; everyone was linking it as if it was new, and I, um, just assumed. I know I shouldn't do that.

The ad is still the ad, of course, and still demonstrates the creepy kill-your-children attitude of the eco-fascists. But my attempt to draw a connection to James Lee is just wrong.

...


This is just wonderful.

Remember James Lee? Of course you do. He called babies "human parasites" and called for their extermination.

He also shot up the Discovery Channel's offices to protest their failure to get tough enough on global warming.

Well, the Discovery Company (owner of that channel and many more) now owns Treehugger.com, which they describe thus:

Discovery Communications, the number-one nonfiction media company, today announced the acquisition of the leading eco-lifestyle website, TreeHugger.com. The interactive site becomes part of Discovery’s global multiplatform initiative Planet Green, which includes the first 24/7 eco-lifestyle TV network launching in 50 million homes in early 2008.

The deal brings TreeHugger.com’s rich mix of news, blogs and advice to Planet Green and furthers Discovery’s previously announced goal of developing original programming related to the environment, sustainable development, conservation and organic living.

And what is Treehugger.com now pimping as the "Coolest Environmental Advertising"?

Why, a Hanged Child.

I guess we know how to influence the Discovery Channel, eh? Shoot up their offices and you too can get you message highlighted by the company.

Unbelievable.

Thanks to Adam Baldwin.

Error: No connection here possible to James Lee's shooting spree, as he ad came in 2009.
