JULY 19th, 2012 MOVIE REVIEW: “The Dark Knight Rises,” the third and final installment in director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, pushes the ideological envelope even further than before. It’s impossible not to feel Nolan’s disgust at Occupy Wall Street a movement the film paints as both incoherent and violent courtesy of a class warfare villain armed with nuclear weaponry.
DAILY CALLER 7/23/2012…Rush Limbaugh recently suggested that the makers of the new Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, were pushing a liberal political agenda by giving their villain the same name as Bain Capital, Mitt Romney’s infamous firm. Rush should have watched the movie before criticizing it, because The Dark Knight Rises is anything but liberal. For another, Bane is a brutal dictator whose support for ending economic inequality is merely a cover for his true goal: the destruction of civilization, (object of the Black Bloc) http://dailycaller.com/2012/07/23/the-anti-occupy-message-of-batman/
The politics of Occupy Wall Street are on display for the first part of the film, where an acrobatic burglar named Catwoman is seen as having legitimate gripes against Gotham City’s wealthy elite. Some of the most powerful businessmen are indeed portrayed as wicked exploiters, and they orchestrate a stock market heist to steal more power and influence for themselves. The film is sympathetic to the concerns of the poor, and points out that some who achieve wealth don’t earn it legitimately, (Black Bloc rhetoric).
But these themes disappear as soon as the hulking terrorist Bane takes over Gotham City. All criminals are released. Rich people are executed in sham trials headed by Bane’s lunatic friends. Government officials and police officers are killed or captured (Black Bloc rhetoric). Bane claims that he is solving inequality by leveling the playing field, but his true plan is to perpetrate mass murder by setting off a nuclear bomb.
In this way, viewers see a familiar story unfold — one that is reminiscent of communist and fascist revolutions in Russia, Germany, Cambodia, and North Korea. No matter how legitimate criticisms of the economic, political, and social order may be, any revolution that shatters the rule of law or eliminates the market entirely will necessarily result in greater inequality, suffering, and death. Like the communist parties of real authoritarian states, Bane and his cohorts represent a new ruling class that pretends to care about equality and liberation, but in practice resorts to oppression and extreme violence (Black Bloc rhetoric).
The film’s good guys are Batman and the police officers of Gotham (Black Bloc wants to kill cops), who bravely go to war to prevent Bane’s genocide. Portraying an army of police officers as heroes hardly seems like the choice of a director with a left-wing axe to grind, read the whole thing CLICK HERE.
UPDATE 5:50 PM, 7/21/2012…..Colorado shooting suspect’s apartment was ‘designed to kill,’ police say. “The threat has not been completely eliminated,” Yacone said, while adding that enough progress had been made that “an extensive amount of evidence is in the process of being collected.” Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates told reporters that he believed the rigged apartment of James Holmes targeted the police. “We sure as hell are angry,” he said. THESE ARE BLACK BLOC TACTICS…KILL COPS!
