They are just going public with it now.
Before the internet, plenty of people like me on the fringes had already figured it out.
It was always a secret hidden in plain sight. If you would simply read between the lines you could guess back in the early 90's that they were trying to keep this on the down low.
The irony of calling the Neanderthals cannibals is too complex to discuss here. It is all about projection.
The Neanderthals were a race of people who revered the dead so much they took twenty years to bury them with great ceremony and sometimes after they had been preparing the bones for that entire time. They had a rich notion of the afterlife, giving their loved ones all the implements they might need in the "next life" to "survive" so they would not arrive there empty handed.
From everything I have read and seen, I would guess that out of all the races of people that have ever existed, none of them had a stronger taboo and personal revulsion about cannibalism than did the Neanderthal. This would have applied to highly intelligent animals that the Neanderthal regarded as "people" in their way, like dogs and horses which they domesticated. Of course they ate bison, aurochs, seals and mammoths and yet they still anthropomorphised them and immortalised their human qualities at places like Las Caux. To this very day you will see farmers who love their animals but some of them they eat at the ends of their lives.
As for people, I would bet that much like Eskimos the Neanderthals regarded this as the worst of all crimes and were disgusted to even imagine such things possible.
Not merely to be genocided but to be genocided in this way by huge overwhelming locust-like hordes and their women raped and taken away captive ... too horrific to contemplate.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Homo Sapiens has not changed much at all in the past forty thousand years. For the most part, still a bloodthirsty and essentially insane monster.
Notice how they are still talking that rubbish about "out of Africa." They must not have got the memo. The original proponent of the idea has sworn off it and claimed it was dumb even back then to assert such a thing.
The truth is ... nobody knows where this monster came from. It just appeared at the southern tip of Europe in huge mobs so suddenly it seems impossible. See why I think the way I do? What good this creature, other than its usefulness in killing the Neanderthal?
If all you knew were the facts you might think it the purpose for which this rude beast was made.
