Frank Miller, who is responsible for the worst comics-to-film adaptation I've ever seen and who hasn't made a good comic book since 1992, published an anti-Occupy Wall Street rant on his blog over the weekend. Bleeding Cool helpfully reprints the rant so you don't have to give Miller the hits:
Everybody’s been too damn polite about this nonsense:
The “Occupy” movement, whether displaying itself on Wall Street or in the streets of Oakland (which has, with unspeakable cowardice, embraced it) is anything but an exercise of our blessed First Amendment. “Occupy” is nothing but a pack of louts, thieves, and rapists, an unruly mob, fed by Woodstock-era nostalgia and putrid false righteousness. These clowns can do nothing but harm America.
“Occupy” is nothing short of a clumsy, poorly-expressed attempt at anarchy, to the extent that the “movement” — HAH! Some “movement”, except if the word “bowel” is attached — is anything more than an ugly fashion statement by a bunch of iPhone, iPad wielding spoiled brats who should stop getting in the way of working people and find jobs for themselves.
This is no popular uprising. This is garbage. And goodness knows they’re spewing their garbage — both politically and physically — every which way they can find.
Wake up, pond scum. America is at war against a ruthless enemy.
Then, of course, he ties this all in with the War on Terror, because 9/11 broke what's left of Frank Miller's brain. (I never got a review copy of Miller's latest comic, Holy Terror, but this is a great piece of writing about it.) You should go read the whole rant. My favorite part is when he tells the kids to get off his lawn and go play "Lords of Warcraft [sic]."
