Well, they can't blame this one on the Conservatives

So the guy who was holding up the Discovery channel building was upset because not enough was being done to save the planet. I had to read 3/4 of the article to see this.

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."

Think they will try and spin this or just hide it? LOL

  • It would be soooo easy to blame this on Gore. But the dude had to have some serious mental issues to begin with. I'm thinking that they will try to hide this, so that there is nothing of a sordid nature tied to Gore or the Green movement. I don't think they can afford any more scandals after all the Climate-Gate last winter and the allegations against Gore earlier this summer.

  • He was an eco-terrorist. I don't think they'll try to hide it. Just like I don't think the people who kill doctors who provide abortions speak for the entire anti-abortion movement, I don't think this guy speaks for the environmental movement. There are crazy extremists to be found in every cause and religion. I think environmentalists will come out and say that he was crazy and had nothing to do with the mainstream environmental movement.

  • winkOh gertie, you are so clever and whitty. I wish they had a sweetpea that was a "knee slapper". "We can't anything on conservative" just kill me. I thought you blamed everything on conservatives including the fall of Rome!

  • well... really conservatives tend to care alot less about the planet and more about money so in a way you can blame them ;-)

  • The left always blame the right for every loon that kills somebody. Look how they blamed Bill O'Reilly for the nut that killed Dr.  Tiller, the abortion Dr. They also blame right-wing radio talk show host for every nut.

    You don;t see the right playing the blame game on these nuts. The right does not stoop that low.
