Humint Events Online: "Exterminate All the Brutes"

"Exterminate All the Brutes"

I recently finished reading this book by Sven Lindquist. It's quite a remarkable book, with the basic theme of tracing the origins of European genocide in the New World, culminating in the Nazis. Germans were actually quite late to the genocidal show. But there is some really amazing but obscure and horrible history that is covered, such as the Voulet–Chanoine Mission. But he also touches quite a bit on the origins of Conrad's "Heart of Darkness". Probably the most impressive part of the book is the overview of the intellectual underpinning of genocide by Europeans.

The reviews at Amazon are fairly accurate, except for the one 3 star review, which is misplaced I think, and I recommend the book if you haven't read it or heard of it.

Why are there no Illinois indians in Illinois?

Who exterminated the Canaanites?

Don't waste your time on left wing anti white "scholarship.

I wouldn't say the book is left wing, and I don't know what the "anti-white" comment refers to.

Descendents of Europeans killed the Illinois Indians, no?

As far as the Canaanites, I never claimed, and neither does the book claim, that genocide was only perpetrated by the Europeans.

Did you read the book?
