RK says hali's abject refusal to properly report the scandal surrounding dodds's sale of the bogus "bellini" to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is disgusting.
So far hali, which bills itself as rugdom's central organ, has published two "articles" about this grievous problem and fraud.
The first, sherri hunter's idiotic cheerleading report on LACMA's Textile Department "exhibition", where the rug was first publicly shown, pathetically tried to forward the idea dodds's rug was the type of 16th century masterpiece weaving found in the Italian Renaissance paintings of masters like Bellini.
Worse than that completely false and untrue association was hunter's calling dodd's bogus "bellini" design, the "dumb-bell" design.
How hali could stoop so low in choosing a rug ignoramus and “dumb-bell” like hunter to write such clap-trap is damning, as well as showing how out of touch with reality the editors and publisher of hali truly are.
Then, after almost two years of silence about this issue, which flies in the face of RugKazbah.com's investigations that have proven to any unbiased observer dodds's misrepresentations, fabrications and outright lies, hali recently published a letter to the editor, written by a brown-nosed rug moron, praising LACMA's alleged scientific-investigation of the carpet while completely avoiding comment that investigation was undertaken only in response to, and to further cover-up, RugKazbah.com’s publication of the fact dodds completely defrauded the museum in selling them a "bellini" that was nothing near his specious description.
To anyone with enough sense to open a package of chewing gum this smacks of collusion and a type of yellow-journalism not seen since the William Randall Hearst's Spanish-American War reportage.
But because the vast majority of rugdom is brain-dead and deathly afraid to ever question hali or the pooh-bah clowns who control the icoc/acor axis, no one save RK has breathed one public word about dodds's fraudulent sale and its continued cover-up by LACMA.
A time is fast approaching where this issue will soon receive far wider media coverage, and when it does RK is positive all of the actors who have played their roles in keeping this scandalous fraud quiet and under wraps will be exposed.
First on that list is dodds, a proven carpet-bagging lying thief and fraud.
Coming close behind dodds are the editors and publishers of hali who have not only condoned dodd's thieving ways but have blatantly supported a person who has been shown to be a liar and thief.
Pulling right behind hali, and mouthing the same unbelievably outrageous support for dodds, are the icoc/acor honchos who have yet to utter a public word concerning dodds's lies, theft and fraud.
RK says all of these self-anointed and appointed pooh-bahs are equally as guilty, from their behind the scenes leader little lord franses who RK has demonstrated was probably involved in dodds acquiring the "bellini" and its previous history of attempted but unsuccessful sales offers, to the most junior wanna-be members like moorehouse, the author of the recent hali letter to the editors.
Lastly are many other rug collectors and dealers who are too chicken-shit to call dodds out for the lies and fraudulent statements he used to convince LACMA's rug ignorant and ex-Costume and Textile department curator, dale gluckman, his "bellini" was 16th century and a masterpiece of its type.
It is neither and now everyone who has ever read RugKazbah.com knows this well.
RK must add none of dodds's other sale ploys were any more factual and hali's refusal to present the facts and truth of this scandal are equally as improper and culpable as dodds was in presenting LACMA with a dossier of misrepresentations, exaggerations and lies to convince them his "bellini" was anything but the late period, genre reproduction RK has proven it to be.
