Is The Dark Knight Rises a right wing flick?

Bear with me. I just finished it again. I'm also running a 104 degree fever and I'm not even sure if I'm typing this right now guys. I could be asleep and having weird fever dreams.

So Bane and his little army of miscreants. They acted like what Rush Limbaugh self serviced himself imagining OWS to be. Bunch of "revolutionaries" who are violent towards the police and want to take down the top rung of Gotham City? Please. Subtext!

I need to go puke. ._.

It either argues that the left is a bunch of militant morons, or that bad social policies breed desperation and violence.

Batman, being a billionaire ubermench who beats up lower income street thugs as a job, has generally always been associated with the right.
Some writers, such as Frank Miller, takes this stance to an extreme by depicting him as borderline fascist. He's not a bad dude, like he gives to charity and has saved the world countless times, but there are certainly right wing undertones in many of his stories.

Want a left-leaning superhero? Superman fits that bill really well (despite the traditionalism and his association with American patriotism... Although its rather insulting to insinuate that these things are any more right than left).

Catwoman in TDKR was pretty left. In the end, it seemed Bane was disguised as a revolutionary but really just wanted to kill everyone with the bomb. So technically, he wasn't really a "leftist" villain.

Left-wingers generally do not support an armed rebellion meant to take down the government infrastructure.

Left-wingers generally believe in "changing from within", "incremental revolution", and changing society VIA government, not by overthrowing it.

That's the difference between liberals and leftists. Liberals seek change via institutions. Leftists seek armed revolution. Which is why liberals get things done and leftists sit on the sidewalk smoking pot they bought with money from the trust fund their parents gave them.

That's why I said he acted like Rush Limbaugh's wet dream.
