Discovery Gunman Wanted "Life Of Privacy To Action"

Back in 2008, when James Lee was preparing for his first protest (we derided that campaign here) against the Discovery Channel, he started a forum thread on Yuku detailing his plans — and offering a bit of insight into his issues with the network.

“Why should I smile? Should I be laughing at the state of the planet? Should I give a big smile to everyone when they tell me the planet is f*cked? Do you think that this is some kind of JOKE??? I find it very strange how people can smile over tragic news, especially this one.”

There are over 13 pages of back and forth comments between Lee and some Discovery Channel employees and other supporters of the network. This one stands out:

“I love the creatures on the planet,” said Lee. “I’m too grown up to be caught in that “angry-at-the-world-middle-age-crisis”, if anything, I prefer a life of privacy to this action. Like I said, if I’m standing there alone in February 15 and a few days into it, I’ll leave and you’ll never ever ever hear from me again. I’ll be 100% gone and will blend back into the background as if I never existed. It would be easy for me. See my picture? Even now as you’ve seen it, you wouldn’t recognize me if I walked right past you on the street.”

As we all know, that didn’t happen. Lee was shot and killed yesterday after entering the Discovery Channel HQ with guns and explosives and taking hostages. Thankfully, no one at Discovery was hurt.
