Skip to comments.[VIDEO] Professor praises Stalin, claims he never committed ‘one crime’
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.

PRAY FOR AMERICA!
My wife is Ukrainian. Stalin murdered millions. Starvation mostly. They boiled and ate their babies to survive.
Words fail me.
Some of my Ukrainian friends would relish giving this clown a history lesson up close and personal.
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.
Stalin made the rules daily and never violated one for that day.
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”.
Yes and Hitler never killed any Jews.
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.
Oh, he has a ‘book’. *rolls eyes*
Just doing his part as one of the leftist Academia/Media/Entertainment/Government complex.
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.
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.
” Some of my Ukrainian friends would relish giving this clown a history lesson up close and personal.”
I guess the concept of “Crimes Against Humanity” is somewhat fuzzy to the professor.
“You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your fathers desires.
He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him.
When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
Jesus, John 8:44
This is akin to saying the holocaust never happened.
Conservatives need to go after these types of professors and get them out of the University system.
The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency - Vladimir Lenin.. err.. Barack Obama.
A lie told often enough becomes the truth - Vladimir Lenin.. err.. Barack Obama.
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.
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.
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.
That is what you call honor among criminals.
Right Per Fesser, Stalin didn't do a thing to anyone in Medieval England.
This guy needs to make a trip to Russia to tour all the vandalized remains of Uncle Joe statues...
Stalin killed no one before 1700 AD.
Stalin made Hitler look like an amateur.
LEAVE STALIN ALOOOONE!!!!!!!!!!!
So, by this prof’s rationale, *if* I ordered a hit on him, I wouldn’t be guilty of any crime? Nice.
No historical knowledge and lots of agenda...THIS is what your money is paying for if you are in school or you are paying for your child to be in school.
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.
Furr has been doing this pro-Communist indoctrination of students for many years with the full knowledge of the university. See:
Universities which support such people should lose all federal and state funding plus their accreditation.
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..
Start with those denouncing America and working for our downfall like this guy.
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?
Glad to see people like you are defending people like him.
