In an angry essay on his blog, author and graphic novelist Frank Miller recently blasted the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Here’s an excerpt: “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.”
Miller’s attack on the “unruly mob” generated thousands of responses around the Internet, including more than 5,000 quotes on his own site. Using Storify, we’ve collected some of the backlash to the post by the author of 300 and Sin City. (Image via)
