[VIDEO] Professor praises Stalin, claims he never committed ‘one crime’
Campus Reform ^

Posted on 11/05/2012 7:20:09 AM PST by oliverdarcy

A professor at a public university recently denied Soviet Union Leader Joseph Stalin was responsible for the murder of millions, saying he has “yet to find one crime – one crime that Stalin committed.”

“I know they say he killed 20, 30, 40 million people,” continued Grover Furr, a professor in Medieval English at Montclair State University.

“It’s bullshit.”

My wife is Ukrainian. Stalin murdered millions. Starvation mostly. They boiled and ate their babies to survive.

Technically, the prof is correct.

Stalin was never brought up on any charges by any court, except that of popular opinion.

To a leftist, it’s only the technicality that counts here. The fact that he ordered the murders of tens of millions of people is irrelevant to good little commies like the prof.

When the dictator dictates that murder is legal, he can’t break the law by killing millions.

Like Hitler or Mao, Stalin could testify at his trial “I never killed anyone, I was only giving orders”.

I guess the good professor overlooked Stalin's early career as a bank and train robber for the Bolsheviks.

I imagine most commies would say that it is a lie that millions died. They wouldn’t bother with technicalities. The big lie repeated over and over is what tyrants and their defenders do.

He’s not even a history professor. He teaches Medieval English. That’s as absurd as a linguistics professor denying that the Khmer Rouge committed any crimes.

Probably no video evidence of Hitler ever personally killing anyone either.
And he made the trains run on time.

Maybe the good professor will leap to Hitler's defense also.

Academics are often the most reactionary, rigid and ideological people I meet.

It seems a paradox, but my interaction with them has given it proof.

Its because they live in bubbles where their often ridiculous views can survive unchallenged by reality - indeed, they are even encouraged.

Socialist scumbag, George Bernard Shaw happily provided cover for murder.

I must not suggest that this has occurred all over Russia; for I saw no underfed people there; and the children were remarkably plump. And I cannot trust the reports; for I have no sooner read in The Times a letter from Mr Kerensky assuring me that in the Ukraine the starving people are eating one another, than M. Herriot, the eminent French statesman, goes to Russia and insists on visiting the Ukraine so that he may have ocular proof of the alleged cannibalism, but can find no trace of it. Still, between satiety and starvation mitigated by cannibalism there are many degrees of shortage; and it is no secret that the struggle of the Russian Government to provide more collective farms and more giant factories to provide agricultural machinery for them has to be carried on against a constant clamor from the workers for new boots and clothes, and more varied food and more of it: in short, less sacrifice of the present to the future.

He also blamed the victims of communism for forcing communists to kill.

But the most elaborate code of this sort would still have left unspecified a hundred ways in which wreckers of Communism could have sidetracked it without ever having to face the essential questions: are you pulling your weight in the social boat? are you giving more trouble than you are worth? have you earned the privilege of living in a civilized community? That is why the Russians were forced to set up an Inquisition or Star Chamber, called at first the Cheka and now the Gay Pay Oo (Ogpu), to go into these questions and "liquidate" persons who could not answer them satisfactorily

One of the consequences of Stalin’s orders was that there were suddenly thousands of orphans wandering the streets of Moscow. Foreign visitors were shocked at this. Stalin didn’t like the criticism, so he devised a solution. All orphans age 12 and over were shot. Problem solved.

Translation: This idiot approves of Stalin’s murdering and wishes Obama would stop being so gosh darn moderate. I mean, liquidate a few revolutionary class enemies already!

If this professor was given one inch or real power he would be bulldozing corpses into mass graves inside of a year.

This man is a disgrace and evil, pure and simple. I am sure the Ukrainians would be pleased to find out that Stalin's intentional implementation of the Holodomor starvation of millions upon millions of Ukrainians was a figment of their collective imaginations and that it never happened. I am sure the Polish people would be overjoyed to learn that Stalin didn't really order the summary execution of 25 to 30 THOUSAND of their top-flight military leaders in the Kataren (sp?) forest. Those guys must still be out there somewhere wandering around in the forest. All the Polish people need to do is go, find and rescue them.

If I were in charge of Montclair State University where this unmitigated moron is teaching HISTORY, he would be fired immediately for this and for his total blindness and incompetence in learning, understanding and teaching History and for his promotion of lies concerning Stalin, communism and the former Soviet Union.

Having lived and worked throughout the former Soviet Union since 1994, I do not know of anyone I have ever met who had not had at least one of their family members killed or sent off to Siberia or another hell-hole death camp never to be heard from again thanks to Stalin and the godless communist leaders who followed him.

Stalin was a butcher of his own people, nothing more, nothing less. He summed up his own murderous philosophy in one statement: The death of one person is a tragedy... the death of millions is a statistic.

I thank Almighty God that this wicked, evil man is in Hell receiving the punishment for his crimes against humanity.

Unless Mr. Grover Furr repents and comes to Christ, I fear he will soon be joining him.

I agree. This is a sick problem in America, children are taught all bout the Nazis, but never about the communists, because people like this f^cker deny their crimes. We need to mobilize to tackle this. These people are educating children, brainwashing them. Listen to the applause he gets. These kids have no idea!

I’m serious, we have to do something. When we got worried about the growing presence of mosques and creeping Sharia, we took that concern to the state and local elections in town halls. We got anti-Sharia legislation passed in several states. This HAS to be on the agenda for us. A plan by communities to screen college educators, and high school educators, and get rid of people like this maniac. We have to start getting tougher on who these schools are employing.

this is a prime example of the failure of socialism. This idiot professor started his “career” as a grad student. He probably lived on campus, ate on campus, received his education at someone elses’ expense.

He has spent his whole life in the socialistic university “culture” that removes the academics from any semblance of realism.

Why are we surprised that he has formulated this b.s. when it is the only way he can justify his own miserable existence.

He is a product of the failed university system that entertains any and all ideas , promulgated by anyone with professor in front of their name, in the name of academia.

He has never had to live in the real world, work hard, get dirty, put up with crappy management, make hard decisions or produce.

He is ,in a nutshell , the quintessential, EGG HEAD, with no understanding of reality.

One can be educated beyond ones wisdom.

In the first place, what is “a professor in Medieval English” doing opining about Joseph Stalin???

I am sure he was on the debate roster NOT for his expterise in history, of which he is not credentialed, but for representation of his political bias, and for no other reason; but then again a good many “professsors” in “the humanities” ONLY have their jobs BECAUSE OF how well they represent a Leftist view.

The Black Book of Communism was written by French intellectuals who went into the Soviet Union and gathered communist party/government documents of Stalin’s murders. The book they wrote documents what they found. The commies kept maticulous historical records of their mass murders.

These researchers got in and gathered information fast after the Soviet Union fell before the governments had the chance to close access down. They were brave. Liberals have ignored this book.

How do you propose to preserve the 1st Amendment right of free speech for the truthful skeptics who find Climate Chnage to be a hoax and a fraud, if you deny the 1st Amendment right of free speech to the liars using lies in support of Communism and Climate Change alarmism?

Mind you, I’m not suggesting it cannot be done, but it is a difficult contradiction to resolve and requires specific solutions..

What you are talking about is called sedition. The so-called liberals repealed the sedition laws.Even if they had not repealed the sedition laws, how do you expect to keep one of their administrations from imposing their own interpretation of the sedition laws against their opponents such as Republicans, Climate Change skeptics, TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party members and attendees, Christians, anti-abortion voters, and capitalists?
