LOS ANGELES, August 7, 2012—For those who have yet to see “Batman: The Dark Knight Rises,” do so immediately. Like its 2008 predecessor, this movie is phenomenal.
This movie is worthy of multiple Academy Awards. Michael Caine (Alfred) and Gary Oldham (Commissioner Gordon) deserve to win now, and deserved to win in 2008 (along with Aaron Eckhart as Harvey “Two-Face” Dent).
It will not win Oscars, because the Academy voters do not respect “comic book movies.” Also, the politics of this movie will enrage them.
In 2008, Batman’s true political identity was revealed. Just to review:
1.) Batman saves the entire world.
2.) A bunch of spoiled ungrateful brats don’t appreciate him.
3.) He walks off into the sunset and doesn’t bother asking for an ounce of credit.
4.) Only after he leaves everybody realizes he was the hero who saves our lives all along.
Batman is George W. Bush.
The Joker was not a criminal. He was a terrorist. The ACLU point of view on how to deal with him was explored, and rejected. The War on Terror required extra measures, and the 2008 Batman movie was very politically conservative on the terrorism issue.
Yet unlike Barack Obama, living in the past is not what this is about. The 2012 movie, while not overtly conservative, is even more anti-leftist.
The evil villain is Bane. He rails on about the powerful exploiting the people, and exhorts the people to rise up. They storm the stock exchange. In other words, they “Occupy Wall Street.”
For those who forgot, Occupy Wall Street is a collection of leftist domestic terrorists with a few concerned citizens thrown in. OWS is a violent movement that was originally supposed to be the Obama reelection strategy. Now that Occupy Oakland protesters are destroying Obama campaign headquarters, the Obama team will claim this as proof that OWS is not their creation.
This is false. The Obama team just lost control of their creation, no different than Frankenstein’s Monster and the Saudi Arabia birthing of al Qaeda.
Gotham City is New York City. The New York Stock Exchange are people working for a living. OWS are those engaging in wanton destruction just for the sake of it under the phony guise of “equality.” This is similar to the 1992 Los Angeles Riots, which was for the most part a movement about stealing VCRs.
OWS head Bane has some wealthy white leftist enablers. Like American leftists today, the rich Bane fronters were tools. They seem surprised when he kills them after they cease to be useful to him.
What makes this OWS revolution so important is that in “Dark Knight Rises,” we actually see what happens when it succeeds. “Utopia” quickly descends into anarchy and shared misery.
Liberals will insist that Batman is “only a movie,” but they do not take that viewpoint when ramming liberal messages down American throats. The Academy Awards have always been about “social commentary,” which means leftism. Movies are only just movies when the message being conveyed deviates from leftist orthodoxy.
Bane is actually not the very top of the leftist food chain. Even he answers to another figure, and that figure is every bit as demonic as George Soros. That figure also happens to be an environmentalist.
In the movie, Batman is the good guy and OWS are the bad guys. In the movie, Batman wins and OWS loses.
This movie is a work of art, and one example where society would be greatly enhanced if life imitated art.
George Soros, David Axelrod, and Barack Obama unleashed OWS on innocent American society. Mr. Soros’s goal is to destroy and collapse the society. Mr. Axelrod and Mr. Obama are his lieutenants, with SIEU and former ACORN community organizers unleashed to stir up the masses.
The real world does not have Batman to save us. George W. Bush retired to his ranch. He took the fight to the Islamofascist terrorists, but left office before the domestic terrorists arrived. Barack Obama is powerless to stop OWS, and seems no interest in doing so.
Like these movies, every ending in life can be a potential new beginning. Mitt Romney very well could be Robin, the next in line. Romney’s critics talk about his support from Wall Street executives and Tea Partiers.
They don’t rape, pillage and murder in the streets. That would be the OWS movement.
Like Islamists, OWS is another reason why Mitt Romney may be our last best hope.
Until then, thank you George W. Batman.
