Doesn't it make you want to heave when leftists put words in the mouths of people like Ronald Reagan, Jesus, Martin Luther King, etc. to justify and legitimize their agenda?

And now Batman, the most anti-fascist, anti-socialist, anti-entitlement figure of them all along with Robin Hood has been appropriated by the left.

From the Here's Stephen Kelly of the UK Guardian, mentioning Frank Miller by name as he claims that Batman could become a hero for the "Occupiers":

This weekend, following speculation that Christopher Nolan is going to use the protests as a backdrop for scenes in The Dark Knight Rises, the movement could play host to a caped crusader who's both friend and foe. And if it does turns out to be false (Entertainment Weekly rebutted the rumours earlier this week), then it's a missed opportunity.

...Batman is one of the most politically complex fictional characters there has ever been. By his very nature and ideals, he is not only more relevant to the Occupy Wall Street protests than its current anarchist veneer of V for Vendetta, but also holds up a mirror to its uneasy reality. Such is the beauty and the beast of subversive popular culture.

For, while you cannot deny the revolutionary backbone of V and the ability of his masks to lazily signify automatic rebellion, he is not the hero we need right now. Batman, on the other hand, is a hero rooted in our reality – one set in a fictional city beset by economic deprivation and grotesque greed. His main animus, if not his methods, is defined by the ideals of philanthropy and a simplistic sense of justice: a selfless billionaire by day who strives to protect the defenceless people of Gotham by night – the 1% fighting for the 99%. In Frank Miller's fantastic comic, Year One, the character crashes a dinner party of a corrupt elite and issues the following warning: "You have eaten well. You've eaten Gotham's wealth. Its spirit. Your feast is nearly over."

Well, Frank Miller got wind of this pronouncement and here is his response:

Everybody’s been too damn polite about this nonsense:

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. “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.

“Occupy” is nothing short of a clumsy, poorly-expressed attempt at anarchy, to the extent that the “movement” – HAH! 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.

This is no popular uprising. This is garbage. And goodness knows they’re spewing their garbage – both politically and physically – every which way they can find.

Wake up, pond scum. America is at war against a ruthless enemy.

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.

They might not let you babies keep your iPhones, though. Try to soldier on.



Oh, and here's the Frank Miller link for all you disbelievers:

Batman Artist/Writer Frank Miller Calls Out “Occupiers” and Tells It Like It Is!


Take that ya spoiled cowardly whiny law-breaking leftist troublemakers!

And to think people like me are accused of just not understanding these people! We understand them perfectly and THAT'S why the media, the liberals, and the Democrats hate us so irrationally and want to shut us up.


Hey guys, did you see how the "Occupiers" in Oakland just deposited the $20,000 they've collected in donations in the very Wells Fargo Bank they vandalized? *ROFLOL*

Kudos for the bankers for bing the adults in the room.

Hey, libs! Gonna boycott Batman now? Maybe trash your local comic book store?

Ah, leftists ... and the rotten smell of revolution!

Do people actually listen to Frank Miller?

And your point? Consider:

The left has long advanced the narrative (laughable in and of itself) that fictional characters like Robin Hood and Batman would support their agenda.

It's relevant that someone closely connected to the mythology, Frank Miller, WHO WAS DRAWN INTO THE DISCUSSION by a member of the media, would have the right to respond - as a REAL PERSON.

Now, people like millionaire Michael Moore (who resides in a $2 million mansion and who applys for every taxpayer subsidy he can get) say they are part of the 99%.

And that this "movement" is diverse and all-inclusive and not political.

Do people actually listen to Michael Moore with a straight face?

The answer is yes.

The next question is why?

Answer: the supposed intent (incoherent thought it is) of the Occupy "movement" is bogus and a distraction being used for political purposes.

Which brings us full circle to Frank Miller who is like the child in "The Emperor's New Clothes" and who strikes a chord and attracts the predictable response, "Who cares about Frank Miller?"

Maybe if someone who wasn't the Dan Simmons of graphic novels (that's a bad thing) said it, I would give a crap.

Dan Simmons?

Oh. I get it. It's not that he's an artist, writer, film-maker, etc., and just not your cup of tea.

You disagree with both their world-views, the way they analyze politics, current events, terrorism, all-controlling oppressive authoritarian governments, that they actually believe in night and day, black and white, etc. and that might be represennted in the stories they tell ... like 300?

That they're not afraid to name the bad guys.

You should just say so.

Most people would MUCH prefer people say what they think and believe ... which is why more and more people have such disdain for the mass media and their sanitized agenda-driven coverage of important stories like the "Occupiers".

It looks so sneaky and silly because they're not fooling anyone.

In what world did the Spartans represent freedom? And I mean it, I'm not just saying that because every time I play Civilization II, I play as the Persians.
