Frank Miller, the famed comic book creator known for the 300, Sin City, and ground breaking runs on the DC Comics character Batman has posted an epic rant on his blog criticizing the Occupy Wall Street protesters. In his post, Miller says that the media has been too polite about this whole thing rather than tell the truth. Glenn read his message and responded on radio this morning.
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.
Maybe, between bouts of self-pity and all the other tasty tidbits of narcissism you’ve been served up in your sheltered, comfy little worlds, you’ve heard terms like al-Qaeda and Islamicism.
And this enemy of mine — not of yours, apparently - must be getting a dark chuckle, if not an outright horselaugh - out of your vain, childish, self-destructive spectacle.
It sounds like Glenn and Frank Miller would have quite a bit in common on this issue.
"Can we hire him? Seriously." Glenn asked. " I've got a great story and I've been looking for, it's a ‑‑ it's a great story and it needs to be a graphic novel and a graphic novel TV show. And I've been looking for the right person to write it."
