I don’t think the two are mutually exclusive. https://t.co/R3wKulYWlP— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) November 5, 2015
Any chance we'll ever hear him say that about a Democrat candidate like Hilary Clinton, who wouldn't be honest about her email scandal and the Benghazi barbarism? Even the UK Telegraph thinks she lied about that.
Then, he attacks Carson just for telling about a theory he's got:
So Ben Carson thinks archaeologists are wrong the Egyptian pyramids were built as burial monuments. He’s got his own theory, that they...— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) November 5, 2015
…were built to store grain. Never mind the dead people found inside in elaborate sarcophagi. Archaeologists get tricked by stuff like that.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) November 5, 2015
Ben Carson’s got a theory, and that’s way more important than actual facts and history and stuff.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) November 5, 2015
.@Kired25 I think he imagines they’re all hollow inside, and imagination is all the research he needs to do, beyond reading the Bible.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) November 5, 2015
For heaven's sake, if it's just a theory, then what's the big deal? Since we're on the subject, let's ponder: some pyramids could've been used as mausoleums, but others could've been used as food and grain storages. Hey, why not? This page says that:
The pyramids were perfect for holding items that would help the pharaoh in his afterlife. Though the pyramids had been looted and cleaned before Egyptologists could examine them, there is significant evidence that they held boats, wooden statues, stone carvings, clothing, food, and luxury items that the pharaoh would have needed. These items were most likely the pharaoh’s valued possessions and were regarded as royal.If so, then it's possible the ancient Egyptians used them for storing food, if not necessarily grain.
Since we're on the subject of ancient Egyptians, how come Busiek and his ilk don't seem particularly concerned about the plight of their modern day descendants, the Copts?
Oh, Ben Carson. When caught in a lie, don't yell at the press. It only encourages them to find more. And you seem to have lots to find.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) November 7, 2015
And what should Hilary do when caught in a lie? Laugh? Oh wait, Busiek's simply not interested. All that matters is what a conservative-leaning politician does. Not the errors committed by Democrats, except maybe if he thinks a particular individual stepped off the plantation for a specific reason he detests.
I don't think Carson's a saint. But then, Busiek should at least be willing to admit the same about various Democrats who've made dreadful mistakes.
