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.
