Dark Knight Returns and 300 author calls Occupy protestors “louts, thieves and rapists” that can “do nothing but harm America” . . .

Holy Terror book coverFrank Miller, the legendary comic book writer who reinvented Batman for a new era in his hugely influential Dark Knight Returns graphic novel as well as 300 and Sin City, had the following to say about the Occupy protestors on his blog:

“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”

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

“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.”

Miller’s most recent graphic novel titled Holy Terror began life as a Batman vs. Al Qaida project and has been described as “anti-Islamic propaganda” by some critics.

Miller’s latest rant has alienated some long-time comic fans with this rant. Read more about Miller’s comments on Islam and negative fan reaction to Miller’s All-Star Batman comic book here.
