He honestly sounds more like a nut than an environmentalist. Anyways hope those he has taken hostage are OK and they get the bastard.

This guy has quite the opinion of Discovery Channel

9. Develop shows that will correct and dismantle the dangerous US world economy. Find solutions for their disasterous Ponzi-Casino economy before they take the world to another nuclear war.

11. You're also going to find solutions for unemployment and housing. All these unemployed people makes me think the US is headed toward more war.
Not asking much of the channel that brought us Ghost Lab is he?

I hope it's in protest of their crappy programming! What happened to all the cool science shows? All we have now is Deadliest Catch and Mythbusters.

Thats because he is :D

Honestly it sounds like the guy has true stability problems and just found an outlet where his nut-baggery would be mistaken for passion and not psychosis.

This guy is a crazy environmentalist whacko. An eco-terrorist if you ask me. Who knows, maybe the media will shift from trying to frame the Tea Party as fringe wackos bent on violence and focus on the proven eco-terrorists.

Les Stroud is a hundred times better than Bear Grills. Hell Bear had Will Ferrell on his show.

Since this guy is an environmentalist, he will be portrayed as an apolitical wacko by the main stream media... If he wasn't, the media would be tying him to Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and the Tea Party.

I agree...Les did his own filming...if he didnt catch food he went hungry...it was 'real'...whereas Bear Grils has people tying down pigs to a tree so he can demonstrate in a manly man way how to slaughter the animal, or has his staff provide store bought salmon when his fishing attempts fail...PAB

Les Stroud is a badass, but I must admit, that Will Ferrell episode was hilarious.

Tell him that for every minute that he stays there you'll cut down a tree.

Then you had to go and say that.. :\
What's wrong with saying that environmentalism is a religion? It's a set of rules and answers for the purpose of our time in this universe and the God of this religion is the environment and there are many prophets of this God. This God is revered and feared to the point where we need to stop procreation and that individuals all over the world need to give sacrifice to this God. How is it not a religion?

From one of the OP source links. I bet you that the media will post this
5. Immigration: Programs must be developed to find solutions to stopping ALL immigration pollution
and the anchor baby filth that follows that. Find solutions to stopping it. Call for people in the world to
develop solutions to stop it completely and permanently. Find solutions FOR these countries so they
stop sending their breeding populations to the US and the world to seek jobs and therefore breed more
unwanted pollution babies. FIND SOLUTIONS FOR THEM TO STOP THEIR HUMAN GROWTH
AND THE EXPORTATION OF THAT DISGUSTING FILTH! (The first world is feeding the
population growth of the Third World and those human families are going to where the food is! They
must stop procreating new humans looking for nonexistant jobs!)
They will try to paint him as an ultra conservative, or at least focus on this point and try to ignore/downplay/ or justify his anti war, global warming, and environmentalist points.

Political leanings are kinda irrelevant when you're demanding the Discovery Channel fix world hunger.

No, the attacker :)

Bear is a show-off.

Terrorists, like ELF usually try to damage the economy to make us go green. This guy has seen Inconvenient Truth one too many times. Al Gore might want to return his Nobel Peace Prize.
Sorry... I couldn't resist. This guy is just an environmentalist nut case. Hopefully no one will be injured and this guy gets locked up in a mental institution for a long time.
Digsbe, don't hold your breath. Excuses will be made for this guy, and the Tea Party will continue to be a threat in the eyes of the MSM, even tho there's never been a single instance of violence.

To be honest many of his stances are liberal, but this guy is a liberal extremist. I don't lump him together with normal liberals because this guy is an extremist liberal terrorist
