This Isn’t As Surprising As You’d Think

Frank Miller went on a tirade against the Occupy movement on Monday and I just saw it make the rounds on Twitter (among the people I follow at least). I was kind of shocked when I started reading it, but then quickly realized, “Oh yeah, he’s fucking insane.” I don’t need to point out the exact line that will make it glaringly obvious. It’s not that surprising when you think about all the ass-kissing he’s received for work he did 20-30 years ago. He’s allowed to do what ever he wants in certain circles. Just look how Tom Cruise turned out. Chair-pee Ma-flyer is nearly 20 years old.

I copied the post just in case (but not very likely) his people talk him into taking it down.

ANARCHY

posted 11.7.2011

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.
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.
In the name of decency, go home to your parents, you losers. Go back to your mommas’ basements and play with your Lords Of Warcraft.
Or better yet, enlist for the real thing. Maybe our military could whip some of you into shape.
They might not let you babies keep your iPhones, though. Try to soldier on.
Schmucks.

I guess Miller has overdosed on Fox News. I can’t think of a single news source other than Fox that would label the Occupy crowd as “a pack of louts, thieves, and rapists, an unruly mob, fed by Woodstock-era nostalgia and putrid false righteousness.”

The only major work Miller has done since the ’90s was “directing” and writing Holy Terror. I guess he’s using the First Amendment the way it’s intended with his “work”? The kind of “work” that people perceive as garbage used to do little more than push a message across and looks like it was done in someone’s basement.

  1. Have you looked at Holy Terror at all? It’s.. well, it’s racist and small-minded to say the least.

    The art alternates between good and bad.

    Let’s all take a moment and thank Whomever that it didn’t stay “Holy Terror, Batman!”

  2. When it was on the verge of release I saw a Daily Show segment about it. I may have seen a few pages online, but the overwhelming negative response was enough for me.

    I think DC would have canned it had it remained a Batman book. I wonder if they nixed it after seeing the first 100 pages and he said he changed directions to save face.
