Director Frank Miller Calls Occupy Wall Street Protestors 'Louts, Thieves & Rapists'

"Sin City" director Frank Miller has taken aim at the Occupy Wall Street protesters in a furious new blog post, urging the anti-corporate greed activists to get organized or go home.
While many celebrities are supporting the movement, which began in New York over two months ago and is now spreading worldwide, the writer/director is far from impressed with what he's seen and he considers the individuals taking part nothing more than "losers."
He writes, "The 'Occupy' movement... 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'... 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."
His remarks came the same week as performances from celebrity peace activists David Crosby, Graham Nash, Billy Bragg and Tom Morello at 'Occupy' base camps in New York and London.
