I always thought Frank Miller was a fascist

Bob Calhoun Frank Miller
The author now has a bad feeling about these Frank Miller comics that he fished out of his closet. Notice the book on the right is titled “Give Me Liberty, for whatever that’s worth.

Frank Miller, the comic book writer/artist behind a totally rad, ninja-filled run of “Daredevil: The Man Without Fear” that I was really into back in the late 1970s, has weighed in on the Occupy Wall Street movement in a recently posted blog.

“‘Occupy’ is nothing but a pack of louts, thieves, and rapists, an unruly mob, fed by Woodstock-era nostalgia and putrid false righteousness,” the creator and co-director of “Sin City” rants in 14-point type.

“This is no popular uprising,” he continues, “This is garbage.”

He also goes on to call the occupiers “pond scum,” before cautioning them about America’s “war against a ruthless enemy,” i.e. “al-Qaeda and Islamicism.”

I think that Frank Miller believes that ninjas can resurrect Osama bin Laden just like they tried to do with Elektra back in “Elektra Saga” #4. In other words, Frank is getting high on his own supply.

Miller closes his little diatribe by telling the occupiers to “go back to your mommas’ basements and play with your Lords Of Warcraft (sic).”

That last little quip had me thinking, “Wait a minute Frank—isn’t that your target you’re talking about there?”

The last thing that Frank Miller wants is for those young people playing “Lords of Warcraft” (whatever that is) in their mother’s basements to become part of an actual democratic movement that has them getting jabbed in the ribs by cops in Berkeley or taking tear gas canisters to the head in Oakland (as in the case of Iraq War vet and Luke Skywalker lookalike Scott Olsen). Actually participating in life instead of living through somebody else’s fantasies of Dark Knights and 300 Spartans is bad for Miller’s bottom line.

Beer, Blood and Piecemeal.

The rock and reading odyssey of a 300-pound hulk.
