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:

“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.”

Immigrants Who Fled Fmr USSR Openly Compare Dem Party to Communists

 

From AP

 

If you have met me personally, you know that I cannot stand communism, Soviet-style politics, and the like. Everyone who knows me (to some extent) is aware that it makes my blood boil when socialism and communism are praised. Since I was old enough to comprehend basic things, I understood that the Democratic Party was unfriendly to freedom and individuality.

I wrote about the Democratic Party’s embrace of Soviet communism in my article, “Nightmares of My Father: Back to the USSR?”

People have told me I am crazy for making such an assumption. Why don’t you try having family killed, sent to GULAGs, and starved by Russian communists? Before you think highly of Russian communism, please talk to me, my parents, and those who understand how communists operate. You will be enlightened.

Nevertheless, it is a relief to see other immigrants from the former USSR exposing the Democratic Party.

Fox Nation gives a preview of the article here:

Many Russian immigrants to the “red borough” of Staten Island are flocking to the Republican Party, saying that the national Democrats’ “socialistic” policies remind them too much of the top-down oligarchy they fled in their native land.

With many of the borough’s Russian arrivees already owning businesses and active in civic organizations, their muscle could help the Island GOP solidify electoral gains made this year, when the party took back congressional and Assembly seats.
