Communist Bloodbath Denier

The Muslims running Iran deny the Holocaust ever happened, even while openly planning the next Holocaust by promising to wipe Israel off the map and developing the nuclear weapons with which to do it. Similarly, the kooks running our education system are beginning to deny the extensively documented fact that communist regimes have killed over 100 million of their own people. I turn over the floor to Professor Grover Furr of Montclair State, who responds to an inconvenient question with alarming lies:

Russia and Asia are lucky. For them, the soul-numbing horrors of communism appear to be mostly in the past.

On a tip from St. Gilbert.

    I wonder if the professor has had any students from Ukraine.

  • Rotohammer

    Oops, I see moonbattery has pointed to that holodomor site recently already. Well, worth repeating.

    Stalin would have made this one dig his own grave. The very definition of a tool.

  • big-pete

    Collectivist utopias are always built on the graves of those that didn’t “get it” and more then a few who thought they did. Fools always think they “get it” right up until they actually do get it in the back of the head.

    Some people leave hospitals sicker than when they went in. Other people leave college dumber than when they went in.

    More proof that some people will say *anything* to get on YouTube. Is he writing a book and needs free publicity?

    Rotohammer

    No oops needed.

    I didn’t catch it til’ now, and I wonder about others.

    Thanks for critical history.

    I’ll make sure I show this to my 19-year-old daughter and her friends.

    They will be the future leaders and they need to recognize the symptoms of evil, so as to maintain good.

    “Well worth repeating.”

    Russia and Asia are lucky. For them, the soul-numbing horrors of communism appear to be mostly in the past.

    Haven’t you been paying attention to Putin lately?

    Don’t be so sure about that.

    And the Chinese aren’t so wedded to capitalism as they would have us believe.

    EXCELLENT POST! However, I would have finished it thus:

    Fools always think they “get it”… right up until they actually do “get it”…

    IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD!

    Use white space and punctuation to hammer the message home.

    Still, can’t really say you got anything wrong and style is more a subjective issue.

  • Bob Roberts

    Near the end the usual socialist canard is trotted out: “The United States has the LOWEST standard of living of ANY of these industrialized countries…”

    Yeah, that’s why so many from all those other countries with allegedly higher standards of living are all desperately trying to come here and few if any of us are making any effort to go live there.

  • Bob Roberts

    And at the very end he suggests it’s all about the superiority of socialist health care… and yet you see Canadians streaming to the U.S. for medical care, not Americans headed north into Canada to take advantage of their wonderful socialized medicine and all it has to offer!

    Not yet at least! ;)

    BTW: Thanks for the input.

    I went to Montclair back in the 90s. Every week, I’d see this nutcase writing letters to the editor of the school paper spouting his communist nonsense. I wrote a few rebuttals during my term. Once crazy, always crazy.

    And his followers are in the right place to accomplish just that.

  • Bob Roberts

    Seems this eggplant in the video spends a lot of time on adhominem attacks and here you find a response.

    I was not going to write about Prof. Grover Furr of Montclair State University. I did not want to call more attention to him, which he obviously craves. But now that the video of his speech at a recent forum has gone viral on the internet, thanks to the Washington Examiner, and is being featured on other sites as well, I have decided it is time to speak out about this particularly imbecilic member of the Academy.

    Professor Furr is a Professor of Medieval English Literature, but what has led to all the hullabaloo about him is his decades-long defense of the old Soviet Union, and in particular of the years in which one of the 20th century’s most horrendous monsters, Josef Stalin, wreaked havoc on the lives of the peoples living under his reign of terror. Professor Furr has been in the business of Stalin worship for quite some time.

  • Bob Roberts

    Hey, looks like FURR made the “Top 10 LEAST wanted” list.

    Because we still work in the old inverted pyramid style of reporting, we will take the pedagogue we consider most notable first:

    • That would have to be Montclair State University’s Grover C. Furr who is still intent on proving that Joseph Stalin was framed on charges that he committed genocide, no matter what the Russians themselves may say.

  • Bob Roberts

    And, if you were wondering about the rest of the list or what should be done about it, well first here’s the rest and if you just want to know the answer, skip down to the very end of this post!

    • For his part, Lowell “Rusty” Pritchard of Emory is trying to warn the globe that “humans have caused most of the warming” “since 1950” despite temperatures that dropped in the intervening years.

    • On the home front, Brigham Young University’s Valerie Hegstrom says “I have to teach my female and male students to think like women” when studying Spanish literature. “When people ask me how I can stand it, I say that I believe in striking out in the heart of the patriarchy,” Dr. Hegstrom explained of her decision to stay at BYU.

    • Rachel B. Reinhard of the State University of New York at Cortland vexes over the attitudes of the future teachers she instructs: “My students see themselves as conveyors of knowledge or as coaches or mentors, not activists.”

    • The University of Chicago’s Jane Dailey got herself a spot on the honor roll with her thesis on “Sex, Segregation and the Sacred After Brown.”

    • The University of California at Riverside’s Jennifer Doyle makes our final cut because of the slide show that she presented at the Modern Language Association’s annual convention which featured a naked artist sitting on a pyramid the hard way. In the next slide, a pyramid was replaced by a baseball bat.

    • Lafayette College’s Michael Benitez finished his presentation at a multicultural conference with a rap song and told his student audience: “You’re only an expert on your own experiences.”

    • Julianne Malveaux, president of Bennett College, found an interesting link between labor economics and criminology. “The drug offenders are only hurting themselves,” she said at a conference last summer. “Why don’t we expunge those records and get those people back in the labor pool?”

    • Johns Hopkins University professor Richard Halpern found sexual references only an academic could unearth in Norman Rockwell’s paintings.

    Finally, in tenth place, we have a trio of honorable mentions:

    • Lisa Jane Moore of Purchase College in the State University of New York system for writing the book Sperm Counts: Overcome by Man’s Most Precious Fluid;

    • Northwestern University’s Michael S. Sherry for scouring the Watergate tapes in search of Richard Nixon’s views on homosexuality; and

    • The University of Washington’s Jessica Burstein for looking for love in all the wrong places, namely the MLA, and writing about it in The Chronicle of Higher Education.

    Incidentally, many of these top-of-the-bottom profs work for state universities so they provide a very human answer to the anguished question: “Where would you cut government spending?”

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder – IMHO your expression was a “headshot” play-on-words and you pulled the trigger excellently! Center mass!

    Bob Roberts

    Thanks so much for including me in your evaluations in the other post. Appreciated.

    You can see we view big-pete’s comment differently, but we both appreciate it. Not everyone responds the way we think they should, so I’d like to take this occasion to thank you for letting me off the hook so many times in the past when I’ve goofed everything from syntax to spelling.

    I will continue to make subtle errors, if only to keep you on your toes.

    “I wonder if the professor has had any students from Ukraine.”

    Answer:
    2012 Ukraine Parliamentary Elections Results
    - 13.18% Communist Party

    Swing: +7.79%

    source: wikipedia.

    Which means even if he had an Ukrainian student there would be 13% chances he would be a commie too.

  • TED

    Oliver Stone says CHINA does not have a history of aggression. Hmmmmmmmmm, I wonder if the millions of China’s own dead agree with him!? They LIE and the half-wits listen.

  • Sam Adams

    CBS….are they still in business? I haven’t watched them for years. In fact, I have no idea what “prime time” programming is available anymore.

    And I haven’t missed it.

    BTW, Ted, maybe it isn’t considered aggression when you are only killing 70 million of your own people.

  • whotothewhat

    At least thank GOD! that the guy asked the question and put the Professor on the defense, and thank GOD! the professor was BOOed by some in the audience for his retort and commie grandstanding

  • Fulgrim

    All of this is irrelevant. Give in to the Primordial Annihilator, and all will become clear. The more you soak in the corruption, the sweeter it becomes. It is intoxicating, in a way. This is our country. Ours to corrupt. Ours to despoil. The Dark Gods shall not be denied their prize.

    Yes indeed; some kid are unwilling to learn from their parents. We have the exact same problem here with Jews who will not support Israel.

    They are contributors to their own annihilation.
