Frank Miller has spent much of his famed comic book writing career creating dark, urban dystopias, but the groundbreaking scribe has little regard for the chaos he says reigns at Zuccotti Park.

The man behind such famed comic series as “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns,” “Sin City” and “300,” in fact, is entirely against the Occupy Wall Street movement.

“‘Occupy’ is nothing but a pack of louts, thieves, and rapists, an unruly mob, fed by Woodstock-era nostalgia and putrid false righteousness,” Miller wrote in a blog entry last week. “These clowns can do nothing but harm America.”

Though, for the most part, the participants in the now-global Occupy moment have protested the imbalances of the economy, corporate fiscal abuses and government officials’ close ties to Wall Street, Miller mentions the War on Terror in his slamming of the nascent movement.

“Wake up, pond scum. America is at war against a ruthless enemy,” he later continues. “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.”

Miller then implores protestors to join the military, or otherwise, to go “back to your mommas’ basements and play with your Lords Of Warcraft.”

In his work, Miller’s protagonists often face off against corrupt government officials. Batman, in both “The Dark Knight Returns” and “The Dark Knight Strikes Again” is faced with heavy governmental opposition, with the latter featuring an especially oppressive and corrupt government.

  1. First Mamet, now Miller, and the same comments in the bilge. I dare say that Miller was more accessible to more com-mentors than was Mamet, but they … are not worth wasting more time and words on.

  2. Maybe Frank Miller was surfing the net one day when he came upon a site called vladtepesblog. Maybe Frank Miller has some critical thinking ability. You never know…

  3. Chris, back in 2007 Miller said the following during an interview:

    For some reason, nobody seems to be talking about who we’re up against, and the sixth century barbarism that they actually represent. These people saw people’s heads off. They enslave women, they genitally mutilate their daughters, they do not behave by any cultural norms that are sensible to us. I’m speaking into a microphone that never could have been a product of their culture, and I’m living in a city where three thousand of my neighbors were killed by thieves of airplanes they never could have built.

  4. More famous people should be like Miller and say the truth, but they are to wrapped up in their careers and are too scared.His graphic novels are a testament to someone who see’s the evils of the world in plain site. They are a warning of man’s inhumanity and he is a man who recognizes the symptoms that lead to cultural death.
