This is something that is circulating around a lot of the comic-book and cinema tables right now. Frank Miller, who has been responsible for some great comics that have been turned into some really badass movies, like 300, Sin City, Watchmen, and many others, has had a statement go out on his blog about the Occupy Wall Street movement, along with all the other Occupy movements that have gone on around the country. In keeping with my usual style of doing things, I intend to put up quotes from the man himself, then pwn them into oblivion. Here goes nothing.
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.
Yes, because the First Amendment doesn’t say anything about people gathering to address their grievances to the government, except for –
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Gee, if somebody smarter than me were to look at that, they might just think that this said that you are full of shit. But yeah, I’m right there with you, Frank. Dumbass.
“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.
You know, Frank, I could have sworn that the Occupy movement is trying to protest a group of thieves who have destroyed our economy once, and are destroying it anew. Plus, where the hell did this “rapist” accusation come from? Really, where is your evidence that these people are rapists? I’m actually hoping you respond and give me some proof as to all the rapings that are going on. And if you want to say that somebody is doing nothing but harming America, why don’t you turn some of that self-righteous indignation against the banking industry that ran our country into ruin, or the government cowards who are in their pockets, instead of defending the establishment, you hopeless hack!
“Occupy” is nothing short of a clumsy, poorly-expressed attempt at anarchy, to the extent that the “movement” – HAH!
Anarchy? Really?! These people are protesting for more regulation, much more, and they are somehow anarchists now? If you could have me flow through your logic on this one, I would be really happy. Because at face value, this is really fucking stupid. A person who is an anarchist doesn’t want regulation, they want chaos. They want the system to collapse. Apparently he didn’t hear the Joker’s speach in The Dark Knight. But yeah, this is really stupid. Of course, what follows immediately afterwards is just icing on the cake.
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.
Wow! This is kind of awesome! This guy’s solution to the unemployment problem is – get a job! Hey, Frank, what’s your solution to the food problem in Ethiopia?
Well, those people should just eat more! (he didn’t actually say that, I am just parodying)
Wow, Frank, that’s kind of heartless, and really stupid. The unemployment problem is directly tied into our economic problems. You are a gigantic stupid retard who can’t seem to understand the fundamentals of what is wrong with society right now. Plus, you are starting to sound like a heartless lout yourself.
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.
Ah yes, it all comes back to this. These terrorists who attacked us. This pathetic fear-mongering that the Republicans have been doing, and still do, since 9/11. This is just sad, Frank. First off, all these fear-mongering is bullshit. The time it took to plan 9/11 (unless you are one of those stupid 9/11 Truthers who should just shut the fuck up) was years. It was over ten years in the making to get this all set up. It took over 10 years to make one thing happen. Granted, it was a huge thing, but this was just one thing. It’s not like these guys are blowing shit up and destroying the world every day, Frank. Apparently, your astute observation didn’t pick that up.
And another thing – stop villifying all of Islam! I hate Islam. I think it’s stupid, repugnant, violent, and loathesome, but guess what, I believe it has a right to exist in this world, just like any other idea, and I also know that while I take serious issue with the belief system, I know that there are plenty of people out there who are not all just looking to kill everybody. They just want to live a normal life. It’s people like Frank, the coward that he is, who are making this world a worse place, for everybody.
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.
Fuck you, Frank, and all of your cowardly pathetic bullshit. I kind of feel bad for liking Sin City still. I have lot all respect for the creator, but I still enjoy the films. Well, I enjoy some of his films. The Spirit was a joke, and so was Sucker Punch. But still, this is just sad. It’s sad to watch somebody who had true greatness fall into the desolate wasteland of intellectual obscurity, right along with Ayn Rand and Ron Paul.
This man is a coward. He chooses to ignore the real problems, and to lash out against something that he can wrap his tiny little brain around. These are the kinds of people who just plain bug me. My aunt’s new husband is just the same. Don’t focus on the stuff that matters, instead, go off on the stupid bullshit problems that don’t actually matter. Really, all conservatives are like this. The fact that their base is too stupid to be able to see that they are all being used by the architects of the system that is screwing over so many people is one thing, but to say, “don’t focus on the important stuff, get all worked up over this menial bulllshit!” that just pisses me off.
This is a difficult time for us to live in, right now. My generation is going to have to suffer for all the bad decisions that our cowardly government and our ruthless banking system make. All of us are now the victims in the cesspool that is America’s economy, and here is a guy who was once regarded as a brilliant creator, turning into just another mouthpiece of a stupid, tired, disproven ideology that never meant anything to anybody anyway. It was just another weapon of the system.
Go rot in obscurity, Frank. You’ve lost whatever credibility you had left.
Until next time, a quote,
“What happened to be between being the guy who wrote The Dark Knight Returns and Sin City, and then being the guy who directed The Spirit, and then says shit like this. What happened?! Did you just run out of genius? Were you born with a little genius bar, and when it ran out, you just refused to bow gracefully out and step away? -TJ Kincaid, PWNED: Frank Miller
