Rush Limbaugh on The Dark Knight Rises Villain: Liberal Conspiracy!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Rush Limbaugh recently referred to a Georgetown student as a slut because she wanted to have birth control covered by her health insurance plan.

Incredibly, however, this comment was positively rational compared to the conspiracy theory spewed forth by the radio host on Tuesday.

Shot of Bane

Discussing The Dark Knight Rises and its primary villain, a terrorist played by Tom Hardy named Bane, Limbaugh went off about the clear connection between this bad guy's name and the issue Democrats have been hammering home in recent election ads: Mitt Romney's role in the company Bain.

It's a conspiracy, people!

"The villain in The Dark Knight Rises is named Bane, B-a-n-e," Limbaugh ranted. "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 Bane?"

Well, readers, he's asking: Do you think it's a coincidence? Or is Christopher Nolan a secret agent for Barack Obama? Weigh in now: Are liberals behind the casting of Bane in The Dark Knight Rises?


Considering Bane made his debut in 1993, I'd say it's highly unlikely.


@Gail: Are you kidding me? Rush is not to blame here. The sick individual who dressed up as Bane and started shooting people is the one to blame. Do you really think Rush Limbaugh inspried this person to do this? This was a sick person who took the Batman movies too seriously. It is a sad situation and I pray for those affected. God Bless.


A shooting just happen at the Batman premiere.Rush is sitting in his chair laughing.He is pure evil and evil men like he take other men to act over the top insensitive crimes, hate is evil.


Bane,the arch villain, has been in existence since 1993.

Wv peach

Limbaugh is a pig; it's obvious he's a shit-starter. Ugh.....sick of this Viagra-Vicodin abusing dolt.


I didn't hear his show and what he said. I just find it difficult to believe that Rush Limbaugh was being serious. I find it easy to believe that the media may have taken his words out of context to smear him. Now I am not a big Rush fan-to be honest, he is very full of himself. But, I do believe he was acting sarcastically and think its not worthly of space and time on this website.


Wow. If Limbaugh actually did some research, he would know that Bane is a Batman villain in the comics, been one since 1993. Instead, he has to go on another hateful & ignorant rant. Congrats dude, u just made yourself look like an idiot... AGAIN!!!


The charachter 'Bane' has been a batman villian for a long time, maybe Limbaugh should have someone doing research for him?


Stupidest thing I've ever heard. He can't be serious -___________-


This guy is a creep that just needs to disappear. I'm getting sick of hearing about him and his disgusting views.
