Legendary comic book artist Frank Miller has created quite an uproar after expressing his opinion about the Occupy Wall Street movement, comparing it to a bowel movement.
The man responsible for Sin City, 300 and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns posted a short but not-so-sweet candid criticism of the Occupy movement.
'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, Miller wrote on his blog.
Miller refers to the Occupy protesters, who have been camping out in cities across the nation since Sept. 17, as nothing but a pack of louts, thieves, and rapists, an unruly mob, fed by Woodstock-era nostalgia and putrid false righteousness amongst many other names. Miller also suggested that these Occupy protesters should enlist in the military so that they can be whipped into shape.
According to Miller, he needed to make his opinion heard because people have been too damn polite about this nonsense.
While Miller exercised his own First Amendment right, a backlash from fans and critics has commenced,
So we've reached the point where 'Insane, even for Frank Miller' is a thing, journalist Spencer Ackerman tweeted.
There are people who are surprised to find out Frank Miller leans right? These people must not have read his comics. #NotAFrankMillerFan, Cinebeats and Turner Classic Movies writer Kimberly Lindbergs tweeted.
Bleeding Cool, a popular comic book news Web site, even put Miller's words in the mouth of Batman, literally, drawing a comic of Batman as an Occupy critic.
While some disagree with Miller's outpouring, many sympathize with him and still worship his work as an original 1986 drawing of Batman sold earlier this year for $448,125. Let's see if he can pull off another grand sale like this post Millergate.
Frank Miller most recently released a book entitled Holy Terror, as his statement about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and counterterrorism, which critics largely disapprove of.

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.
