Frank Miller’s commentary on the Occupy Wall Street movement isn’t even worth arguing with. It’s so ill-informed and just fucking mean that you get the sense that Miller is somehow personally threatened by this. Like most of the people who diss Occupy are just like “lol pot smokers get a job” but Miller seems genuinely incensed at these people.
Why would this piss him off so much? He certainly isn’t the accepted establishment that the 99% are trying to fight. Does he seriously think al-Qaeda represents such a threat that anybody not actively fighting them is wasting their time?
Regardless, he’s so obviously out-of-touch on this thing that his comments didn’t make me mad, it just made me wonder what kind of world he thinks he’s living in.
Remember in Dark Knight Returns when Batman takes those criminal teenagers that made up the Mutants gang and trains them and shows them that they can stand up for something that’s better than crime? He shows them how to stand up to authority, how to take back their world that the establishment is actively destroying. What if Batman instead just said “Fuck you, kids. Go play Lord of Warcraft.”? It probably wouldn’t be considered one of the best comics of the 20th century.
Also, come on Miller, you know it’s called World of Warcraft. You’re not fooling anybody by saying Lords of Warcraft. And the bowel movement line. I’d expect that from somebody like, oh, us. We make jokes about boners on the reg, and even we think that’s a bit immature. Get it together.
