On his radio show this week, Rush Limbaugh pointed out that the villain in the Dark Knight Rises is named Bane, which is a homophone of Bain – as in Bain Capital the financial services company founded by Mitt Romney.
Have you heard this new movie, the Batman movie, what is it, The Dark Knight Lights Up or whatever the name 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. The movie has been in the works for a long time. The release date’s been known, summer 2012 for a long time. 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 Bain?
“A lot of people are gonna see the movie, and it’s a lot of brain-dead people, entertainment, the pop culture crowd, and they’re gonna hear Bane in the movie and they’re gonna associate Bain. The thought is that when they start paying attention to the campaign later in the year, and Obama and the Democrats keep talking about Bain, Romney and Bain, that these people will think back to the Batman movie, “Oh, yeah, I know who that is.”-
Bane was created in 1993 by Chuck Dixon, a staunch Republican. Dixon pointed out to Comicbook.com that the similarities should go the opposite way: “My understanding is that Bane is more of an Occupy Wall Street type. Romney is more like Bruce Wayne,” Dixon quipped.
Talk about an UNBELIEVABLE move by Obama! If he’s really getting a conservative to create a comicbook villain with the homophone name of a company a potential political opponent co-founded 19 years in advance so that when the 3rd movie in a blockbuster trilogy comes out, he can use that to subliminally affect voting minds… I think it’s safe to say the presidential election is locked up.
