Well, Indiana Jones #5 sounds fucking lame, takes place in a fucking big box strip center?  

Oh wait, are there Hobby Lobby Nazis?  I hate Hobby Lobby Nazis.

I can’t tell if this is one of those things where I’m just internet brain damaged or what, but I figured everyone knew by now that Hobby Lobby funded ISIS. Is that not something everyone knew?

The Garden Ridge Antiquity Wars have begun.  And as irony would have it, they will start on a Sunday.

Hasn't this been going on for a decade? It seems like they get something confiscated every few years.

 

Quote

As Candida Moss and Joel Baden write in their study of the Green family‚Äôs Evangelical vision for America,¬†Bible Nation, Hobby Lobby‚Äôs decision to¬†ignore expert advice¬†on antiquities collecting led to several high-profile forfeitures of illegally trafficked items and the purchase of several counterfeit objects. In 2017, the organization agreed to a settlement with the United States Attorney‚Äôs office in Brooklyn, in which they paid $3 million and eventually returned over 11,000 pieces ‚ÄĒ mostly papyrus fragments, cuneiform tablets, and small clay seals ‚ÄĒ to Egypt and Iraq. ‚ÄúI knew little about the world of collecting,‚ÄĚ Hobby Lobby president Steven Green¬†told¬†The¬†Wall Street Journal¬†last March.

 

Green apparently has evangelical fuck fudge you money.

So the tablet was seized from Hobby Lobby in 2019.  Why is this news now?

Also, from the info posted above, it looks like the auction house is the one that committed fraud by selling it with false provenance.  Details are lacking in the report above, but it's possible that Hobby Lobby didn't know the tablet was illegal goods.

Hobby Lobby definitely knew.

It's in the news now because, and bear with me here because this is where it gets tricky.....there was a new development. In a similar fashion to how when a murder is committed, the media covers the murder, trial, and subsequent verdict. Next level stuff, I know.

hobby lobby drapes itself in 'mericuh!, but (at least the one in lawrenceville, nj) doesn't offer a military discount.  unpatriotic fucks.

It's sad how credulous Bern suddenly becomes whenever conservatives turn out to be bad. 

I'm waiting for Incredulity to become credulous.

I had lumped in Hobby Lobby with boring sanctimonious businesses like Chick-fil-A. Now that I know they deal in illegal goods, they are actually more interesting to me. Maybe I should go see if Chick-fil-A has a secret menu with shots of moonshine on it.

Hobby Lobby also doesn't scan barcodes for products because too many of their customers are loons who think barcodes are the mark of the beast.

First time I saw one I was really excited. I thought it was going to have cool stuff like model trains and army men you could paint. So I took my son down there and I have never seen so much nothin' under one roof in all my life. It's like there was stuff in there, but so valueless to me it appeared to be invisible.

5 yrs ago, I would have been inclined to consider that a sarcastic comment  . Today, with the galatic stupidity exhibited by the GOP on a daily basis, I have to assume its reality.

Hobby Lobby has a lot of stuff I'd buy and put in my home if I was selling it and wanted potential buyers to tour it.

They should have a department called ‚ÄúGeneric staging supplies‚ÄĚ you could even leave the pictures of the models in the picture frames.

No "Michaels Arts & Crafts" anywhere near you?

the museum and hobby lobby were the ones who alerted authorities to the questionable provenance.  they did this in 2019.  they had asked christie's for additional documentation, christie's refused, so they (HL and the museum) started their own investigation and found inconsistencies with what christie's had said.  the museum voluntarily gave up the tablet back in 2019 and it was just made official last week.

Ah yes, let's trust Hobby Lobby. The organization that hired an expert in the field who told them all of the things not to do, and then did all of those things, and almost certainly helped fund terrorists in the process.

Well when you put it that way, it just sounds like standard American policy in the Middle East.
