What’s occupying Frank Miller’s mind?

Frank Miller shares his thoughts on the "Occupy" movement which started (at least here in the United States) in New York City's Zuccotti Park.

From Miller’s blog, Frank Miller Ink:

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.

It’s refreshing to see an opinion from our industry, the comics industry, that is not so (typically) Liberal. The "Occupy Wall Street" movement is made up of Socialists and Anarchists whose views are not the same as those of America’s Founding Fathers. You can’t just move into a privately-owned park, smoke dope, assault police officers, and commit rape (news that I have not seen reported by the media).

Isn't Frank Miller big on defending freedom of speech? I guess just not when you want to say something he disagrees with.
