Paul Du Chaillu: The First European To Exhibit African Gorillas


From today Sunday's New York Times Book Review: 

"Planet of the Ape: Between Man And Beast, by Monte Reel"

And on the cover no less ! 

We talked about this De Chaillu dude not too long ago, because his role in familiarizing Europeans with the higher primates that whites did not even know existed until the mid-1800s, contributes a lot to understanding the mindset of Euros in the midst of the Darwinian Revolution. 

From the perspective of this blog and other Southern nationalist sites such as Hunter Wallace's OD, de Chaillu's contribution to Western justification for slavery - even if it came relatively late in the game (de Chaillu lived from 1831 to 1903) - cannot be overstated. 

Naturally the New York Times makes the very first chronicler of african mountain gorillas out to  be nothing more than a circus performer and a bumbling opportunist, in their review of this book on De Chaillu written by Monte Reel of the Washington Post. 

The fact is that Euros were as confused back then as they are today when it comes to grasping the reality of their own hierarchical exceptionalism. 

To truly understand De Chaillu's gorilla exhibits in the context of slavery in the New World, one must read not "Of Inhuman Bondage" by America's pre-eminent "specialist" on slavery, David Brion Davis, but rather Hunter Wallace of Occidental Dissent and his review of the DBD mega-tome. 

From the Times' Book Review: 

Du Chaillu was a young explorer of part-French extraction, son of a trader, poorly educated but a good marksman, who emerged from Gabon in 1859, after a four-year hunting expedition, with 20 preserved skins of a kind of massive ape, known to the local people as njena. The animal soon took its familiar name, gorilla, by loose borrowing from the ancient Greek account of a voyage by Hanno the Navigator, who claimed to have seen some big and hairy people along the African coast and called them Gorillae, though almost certainly they weren’t actual gorillas. Science now recognizes two species, the eastern gorilla (of which the famously endangered mountain gorillas are a subspecies) and the western, which includes those individuals that fell to Du Chaillu’s gun. But such modern taxonomic dicing is far removed, in time and spirit, from the tale of scientific buccaneering and creationist discomfiture that Reel, a former correspondent for The Washington Post, tells in this intriguing book.

Why is this most important de Chaillu person only coming to light now?, today?

Methinks that a great many of the great white Euros who explored and made amazing breakthroughs, have been forever and intentinoally stuffed down the Memory Hole as a result of YKW influence for a long tie now.

I remember reading on this excellent and most unorthodox site of the great Swedish explorer Samuel August Andrée, who died in 1899 along with two yound Swede crew members of his lighter than air balloon.

Why oh why are these earliy pioneers not common postage-stamp figures?

Answer: because they were the now hated-white males that can never again get their pasty faces on a postage stamp.

The war of Memory continues Apace. Ima bout ready to give it up, and leave the cleanup party to the heathens and the mongrels.
