The Bile Rises: Rush Limbaugh Thinks ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Is A Nefarious Scheme To Bring Down Mitt Romney

The Bile Rises: Rush Limbaugh Thinks 'The Dark Knight Rises' Is A Nefarious Scheme To Bring Down Mitt Romney

A blowhard, windbag, crazy person, wingnut and all around unpleasant person, it boggles the mind that anybody, Democratic, Republican, Libertarian or whatever political stripe you ascribe to, can listen to Rush Limbaugh for more than a few minutes without getting nauseous. But not since Alex Jones went off on a delusional rant about how Ridley Scott‘s “Prometheus” was secretly about the Illuminati has a media personality been so idiotic.

Picking up on a thread first suggested quite lamely by the Washington Examiner, Limbaugh believes that Barack Obama‘s campaign is using Christopher Nolan‘s “The Dark Knight Rises” to confuse soft-brained Americans by trying to make a connection between Bane and Mitt Romney’s shady dealing with Bain Captial. NEFARIOUS! As much as we would like to spend all day tearing this apart (starting with the fact that this movie was developed long before Romney became the Presidential nominee and his Bain business became public), you gotta admit, it’s a savvy way for Rush to get some needed hits and attention. And we’d like to summarize his blatherings, but they are so all over the place crazy, it’s difficult to encapsulate completely, so just listen below and see if you can figure out what he’s going on about. And frankly, who needs a blockbuster movie to bring down Mitt, when Vanity Fair’s fascinating look into Romney’s financial world does the heavy lifting?

Anyway, once you’re done with Limbaugh, you can wash it down with three TV spots for the movie which will get that excitement amped back up. “The Dark Knight Rises” opens on Friday. [Deadline/TrailerAddict]

What don't you understand what was being said? Rush wasn't calling it fact. He mentioned that it was a coincidence and that he understood that the movie was shot well before hand. I suppose one would require a mind that could function at a higher tier than "normal" in order to do so. In my opinion, Kevin Jagernauth seems to be the one doing the blathering. Its too bad that some will twist and turn original thoughts, ideas and points of interest into points for opposition to satisfy their own power and control agendas. I'm a firm believer that the truth is the truth no mater which way a person chooses to view it. As well, logic is logical no matter what one may say against it. Why the 'Down with Mitt' base-camp? What happened to Pro-America, Pro-progress, Pro-American Dream? Why is it that so many people just can't stand the reality of where we are today, in need of REAL change?… Why don't American people rely on their own investigations and research instead of adopting the views, ideas and "research" of others that have just done the same, borrowed views? We need to put down the stinkin' power and control agenda and start doing what is best for our Nation, our People… lets get real Kevin. We're not falling for this crap anymore.

Alex Jonestown Massacre

Just check out this hilarious animated (and hilarious) video of a particularly crazy Alex Jones rant

Interesting how Limbaugh got this confused. Bane's use of the marxist rhetoric for revolution seems to me to be a criticism of marxism. After all, Bane used it to tear down the city. Furthermore, the stock market scene showcased how deluded workers were used to steal Bruce Wayne's money. The stockbrokers were actually the victims in this scene. I am not sure if Limbaugh has even seen the movie. From the audio clip, it seems like Limbaugh is insulting average Americans.


We Are In Obama's Dark Night !

Are you aware that Barack Hussein Obama can be found in the Bible?
Proverbs 19:10 (NIV): "It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury – how much worse for a slave to rule over princes!"
Also Proverbs 30:22 (NIV) which says that the earth cannot bear up under "a servant who becomes king."
And Ecclesiastes 5:2-3 (KJV) advises: "let thy words be few…a fool's voice is known by multitude of words."
Although Obama is not descended from slaves, he may feel that he's destined to become a black-slavery avenger.
Or maybe an enslaver of all free citizens!
For some stunning info on Obama and his fellow subversives, Google "Imam Bloomberg's Sharia Mosque," "Michelle Obama's Allah-day," "Obama Supports Public Depravity," "David Letterman's Hate Etc.," "Un-Americans Fight Franklin Graham" and also "Sandra Bernhard, Larry David, Kathy Griffin, Bill Maher, Joan Rivers, Sarah Silverman." Also Google "Islam will purify Jews and Christians" and "Prof. F. N. Lee's ISLAM IN THE BIBLE [PDF]."
PS – Since Christians are commanded to ask God to send severe judgment on persons who commit and support the worst forms of evil (see I Cor. 5 and note "taken away"), Christians everywhere should constantly pray that the Lord will soon "take away" or at least overthrow all US leaders who continue to sear their conscience and arrogantly trample the God-given rights of the majority including the rights of the unborn. Do we need a second American Revolution?
PPS – For a rare look at the 182-year-old endtime belief which has long neutralized millions of American patriots by promising them an "imminent rapture" off earth – which has diverted them away from being prepared to stand against all enemies, domestic as well as foreign – Google "Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty," "Pretrib Rapture Diehards," "Edward Irving is Unnerving," "Pretrib Rapture Secrets," "Christ's Return is NOT Imminent," "Roots of Warlike Christian Zionism" and "Pretrib Rapture Politics" – all by the author of the bestselling nonfiction book "The Rapture Plot" (the most accurate and highly endorsed documentation on the pretrib rapture's long-covered-up-but-now-revealed beginnings in Britain in 1830 – see Armageddon Books).


First brought up by Democrats, idiot.


George Bush = Ra's al ghul
McCain = the Joker
Mitt Romney = Bane


Meh. He isn't AS stupid as people are saying. Jon Stewart made that joke last night. Some conservatives took it seriously and are screaming about it in all seriousness. Limbaugh heard about it and criticizes their stupidity. Now HERE is where it all went downhill. Instead of saying they are stupid for thinking this is a conspiracy, he states that it is stupid because they think it will work. Instead of saying it is completely insane, he says they are right, but it won't work. That is the REAL problem here


hahahahah. priceless! that's some real foreshadowing by nolan!

Steven Janiszewski

Mitt Romney is a predator, a crook, and a liar. He is worse than the character Bane; worse than his record at Bain, his running the S.LC. Winter Olympics, and his tax returns can reveal. As a Mormon, Romney worships Mammon. He doesn't care about anything else. If elected, he would dismantle the federal government and restructure (destroy) the economy. His kleptocratic administration would make his exploits at Bain look like acts of compassion. To gain an existential understanding of the cult that produced Mitt Romney, and to get your socks scared, off read The Assassination of Spiro Agnew, available at:

It dramatizes the Mormon superiority complex manifesting as racism, sexism, jingoism, and an anti-federal government temperament.
It shows the similarities between Islam and Mormonism and reveals the secrets of Mormon mind control.

Here's a review:

“With a clarity of language and vision unsurpassed in contemporary American prose, Steven Janiszewski's Assassination of Spiro Agnew takes us into a U.S. mazed with madness and Mormonism and all things Utah, a U.S. that was then and still is. Do we need a novel, even as brilliant as this one, about a young man on a divine mission to assassinate the Vice President because he is too liberal? Yes, now more than ever. Readers, welcome to a masterpiece.”

Read The Assassination of Spiro Agnew.


Rush Limpbah is not joking. He's taking Bane/Bain seriously.
The only joker around is Rush.


Some of the negative reviews were worrying me but now that Limbaugh hates it must be the GREATEST FILM EVER MADE!


The only bile rising is the hysterical hate of the author of the article.

Limbaugh believes no such thing. Rush gave a satirical commentary
on what Democrats using the movie against Romney.

Time to stop stopping by The Playlist.


He stole that joke from Jon Stewart's last night show..


It almost sounds like he's being sarcastic. It kind of sounds like he heard someone else say it, and is making fun of them. But it is hard to tell.
