Rush Limbaugh Cracks the Subliminal Anti-Romney Message in 'Dark Knight'
July 18, 2012
Rush Limbaugh has blown the underhanded tactics of The Dark Knight Rises wide open.
Have you heard, this new movie, the Batman movie — what is it, the Dark Knight Lights Up or something? Whatever the name of it is. That’s right, Dark Knight Rises, Lights Up, same thing. Do you know the name of the villain in this movie? Bane. The villain in the Dark Knight Rises is named Bane. B-A-N-E. What is the name of the venture capital firm that Romney ran, and around which there’s now this make-believe controversy? Bain... Do you think that it is accidental, that the name of the really vicious, fire-breathing, four-eyed, whatever-it-is villain in this movie is named Bane? … This movie, the audience is going to be huge, lot of people are going to see the movie. And it’s a lot of brain-dead people, entertainment, the pop culture crowd. And they’re going to hear ‘Bane’ in the movie, and they are going to associate Bain.
Boom goes the dynamite. The brain-dead, entertainment, pop culture crowd is going to associate Bane, DC's famous fire-breathing, four-eyed whatever-it-is villain, with the Republican candidate for the presidency. Game, set, match. Nice try, The Dark Knight Lights Up, but Rush Limbaugh is on to your little scheme ...
