Professor Grover Furr Praises Stalin, Claims He Never Committed ‘One Crime’

November 6, 2012 By Gabriella Hoffman Comments (3)



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.”

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.

My Take – As you watch this video please take note that there are idiots in this audience….and not just a few…..that are applauding this man.  Is it any wonder that these kids are coming out of college over educated and under smart?  This guy may be more outspoken in this view than many of his academic colleagues, but he is clearly expressing the overall view they all share about socialism and communism....and his denialism over Stalin's crimes isn't isolated to him.   

What is the solution?  Defund the universities and make them all independent “for profit” institutions.  Make them compete and those that survive will have survived because they turned out successful students, who actually will know how to think; versus the mush brains they are turning out now that have only been taught what to think.

  1. Please contact Dr Emily Isaacs at IsaacsE@mail.montclair.edu . She is the chairman of the dept where Prof Glover Furr works and ask for him to be removed from his position as a denier of communist atrocities. His position is the same as saying that Hitler did no crime and he never killed anyone, and that would not be acceptable
