Have progressive liberals in the media and public schools buried the truth from the masses about atrocities such as killing and burying servants, wives and children of royalty in Egyptian and South American tombs? Are progressive leftists actually rewriting history?
What do you think?
Check your local newspaper for the slant when you see this story on Friday. Did the reporter explain that an ancient mortician didn’t create the look of terror on the mummy, that the twisted terror is due to the woman being buried alive?
Hands over her eyes and her face gripped with terror, the woman’s fear of death is all too obvious.
The remarkable mummy was found in a hidden burial vault in the Amazon.
It is at least 600 years old and has survived thanks to the embalming skills of her tribe, the Chachapoyas or “Cloud Warriors.”
It doesn’t take an expert to come to the conclusion that this female was buried alive.
Eleven more mummies were recovered from the massive cave complex 82 ft. below ground. Some appeared to be family members. Did they all die at once? Why speculate on that? (Because it may turn out to be the entire family was put to death as was practiced by Pharos.
This provides more evidence of the savage, cruel norms practiced by the often vaunted South American civilizations, as was depicted by Mel Gibson in his controversial movie “Apocalypto.”
The vault – which was also used for worship – was chanced upon three months ago by a farmer working at the edge of northern Peru’s rainforest. He tipped off scientists who uncovered ceramics, textiles and wall paintings.
I’d like to point out that a display at the “prestigious” Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago has done some rewrites of history in the permanent exhibit, “Inside Ancient Egypt”. There you can traverse the catacombs once used by Egyptian Kings and Queens and see the many mummies and tombs that have outlasted them. But also take note of how equal time is given to examine the labor-intensive lives of the servants and how they served their masters even in death. A model of a mummy embalming room (that I remember seeing as a student) has been updated. Instead of explaining how family and servants of the dead king were put to death to join him in the after life, the model’s description now ignores that bit of information, and explains away the set of several dead bodies as depicting a busy, highly-ranked embalming studio. Get it? The PC progressives didn’t want to cast a negative light on the godless, morbid practice. But just 25 or 30 years ago, the truth was being explained.
