    Boycott Dark Knight?

    The writer says he's a staunch conservative and compared romney to batman and ows to the villian bane.

    May the FORCE be with you!

    Rush Limbaugh: Bane’s Creator Weighs In

    By: Russ Burlingame on July 17, 2012
    Not long after Rush Limbaugh was quoted by The Hollywood Reporter this afternoon as asserting that the use of longtime DC Comics villain Bane in the upcoming Batman film The Dark Knight Rises was in fact a subtle jab at Bain Capital co-founder Mitt Romney and his Presidential bid, ComicBook.com reached out to the character’s creator, Chuck Dixon, for comment.

    “The idea that there’s some kind of liberal agenda behind the use of Bane in the new movie is silly,” Dixon told ComicBook.com. “I refuted this within hours of the article in the Washington Examiner suggesting that Bane would be tied to Bain Capital and Mitt Romney appearing. Bane was created by me and Graham Nolan and we are lifelong conservatives and as far from left-wing mouthpieces as you are likely to find in comics.”

    Dixon is, as he points out himself, one of the most well-known conservatives in mainstream comics. While he doesn’t seem to believe there’s a political axe to grind behind choosing Bane as the villain at all, he does point out that if there was one, it actually seems more likely that the film is a comment on popular protest movements of the Left.

    “As for his appearance in The Dark Knight Rises, Bane is a force for evil and the destruction of the status quo. He’s far more akin to an Occupy Wall Street type if you’re looking to cast him politically. And if there ever was a Bruce Wayne running for the White House it would have to be Romney.”


    From what I witnessed of the Occupy movement, Bane and his earthquake machine are slightly more…forceful than the OWS crowd. Obviously there’s not that much of a gap between occupying a public park and wrecking havoc across the city of Gotham. When will some leftwing television personality start complaining that Bane is an attempt to smear Occupy Wall Street?


    Dixon also showed up on the nationally syndicated radio program Schnitt Show to refute Limbaugh’s claims, pointing out that he was a lifelong conservative.
    Too funny.

    Rush was completely out to lunch with that whole meme, but I didn't hear it so I'm not sure whether it was intended to be just entertaining BS for laughs that failed and was taken seriously instead, or if he just didn't put three minutes into researching it before he started yapping.

    Yeah, he's usually a lot more on the ball than that. However, he was responding to the Democrats who made the point in the first place. Of course, now that it turns out that the creators are all conservatives and the message isn't a knock on the right so much as multiple knocks on the left, I'm hoping that he's smart enough to admit the error and move on.

    He was reacting to an Obama campaign staffer making the comparison to Bane and Romney and thinking it was funny.
