Professor Sympathizes With Stalin, Says “It’s Bullshit” to Say He Committed Crimes

My first post at Campus Reform is centered around Grover Furr,  a Medieval English professor at Montclair State University in Montclair, NJ , who is an apologist for brutal Soviet dictator and communist Joseph Stalin.  In this video, Furr says that Stalin is an innocent man and that he has yet to find “one crime” Stalin committed. Talk about ridiculous. As someone who has had family murdered and oppressed by Stalin, I find his remarks to be repulsive and insulting. My maternal grandfather was imprisoned in a Russian gulag at the Belomar Canal at the Finnish-Russian border for 18 months. Many of my parents’ friends or family members disappeared under Stalin’s reign of terror from 1929-1953. Professors like Furr should not be teaching at universities.

Here’s the video:

More from Campus Reform:

“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.”

Professor Grover Furr of Montclair State University said he has yet to find “one crime that Stalin committed.”

Furr made the comments at a campus debate featuring three individuals supposedly representing conservative, liberal, and libertarian political views.

Following the debate, a student pressed Furr on his comments reminding the professor that most historians believe “100 to 150 million people [were] killed by communist regimes.”

The professor, however, doubled down on his original comment.

“What you said is bullshit,” said Furr.  “It’s wrong. It’s a lie.”

No Regrets Campaigning for Romney-Ryan in Virginia

Note: The following post was written by me as an individual, not as an employee of Leadership Institute.

“I don’t always campaign, but when I do, I campaign for Romney-Ryan in Virginia.”

I spent the past two Saturdays campaigning in Louduon County, VA with my dad and some friends  who are also active in the conservative youth movement. I met some great patriots along the way and got to bond with my dad more. Additionally, I got to see Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli again (mark my words, he’ll be the next governor of Virginia) and finally met conservative talk show host Mark Levin.

I have no regrets.

I feel embarrassed to admit this, but I never campaigned before until last Saturday. Admittedly, I primarily focus on social media, blogging, and youth activism – which are my niche areas. I’m not really into party politics after seeing the CAGOP’s incompetence on display. I grew into a disillusioned Republican voter – not disillusioned in the sense that I’d vote Democrat (God forbid), but disillusioned in the sense that the party I registered for at 18 was not going in line with conservatism. Not everyone in the CAGOP should be blamed, but many people are at fault for letting the GOP slip in California. Step it up. Yes, I voted (R) in 2009 (referendum election), 2010 (midterms), now in 2012 – and I will continue to do so. Yet, I’m sick and tired of wishy-washy Republican candidates. And many fellow conservatives agree:  we need CONSERVATIVE Republicans in office.

Now that I live in Virginia, which is a huge improvement from my home state Commie…er, California, I was proud to campaign for Republicans here. (Mind you, VAGOP is not perfect either – but at least it’s active.)  I hope I don’t sound cliché, but it is imperative that every person vote, campaign, make calls – whatever – to make sure our side wins on Tuesday. Obama’s failed policies have wrought doom and gloom on our country. Our economy is suffering. Our liberties are under attack. Our country is weak. Can we really afford four more years of this Marxist president? NO.

I implore every young person (and American) who wants a future in this country to vote Romney-Ryan. Your future and our livelihood depend on Obama’s defeat.
