The Context of Rush’s Statement that the Media Won’t Report
“It has been observed that movies can reflect the national mood,” said Democratic advisor and former Clinton aide Christopher Lehane. “Whether it is spelled Bain and being put out by the Obama campaign or Bane and being out by Hollywood, the narratives are similar: a highly intelligent villain with offshore interests and a past both are seeking to cover up who had a powerful father and is set on pillaging society,” he added.
This comment was reported a full day before Rush made his comments on Bane, the bad guy in the upcoming Batman movie. Of course the people on the left that are reporting this are leaving out this detail as well as taking Rush’s comment out of context. He outright says that there are people out there who are not very well-informed will make the connection when the hear name Bain Capitol. And let’s be honest here, there are many stupid people out there; sad but true.
Obviously I have not seen the new movie as it has not been released yet. But I did see Dark Knight, and that was a story of good versus evil. It attempted to make people to think about what you would do if you pushed to your limits and beyond by forces that are evil. Would you go for revenge or would you do the Christian thing and forgive? Not that it put it in a Christian context as such in the movie, but the premise remains the same. This movie has been talked about as an extension of those themes.
Rush was responding to these comments as well as to liberal bloggers who made the connection. The movie was written well before Romney was the nominee and Bane was a past character being brought back. So there was never any connection intended. But that didn’t stop the left from saying so. But all of a sudden Rush is a paranoid idiot when he discussed the left making the comparison.
Media bias much? Hypocrisy is thy name.
