Default US college professor claims "Stalin did not kill millions of people"

Dr. Grover Furr, an English professor at Montclair State University in New Jersey, told students that dictator Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Russia regime never murdered millions of people, contra popular belief.

“I have yet to find one crime — yet to find one crime — that Stalin committed,” Furr said. “I know they all say he killed 20, 30, 40 million people — it is bulls–t"

I'm guessing he doesn't think Mao, Pol Pot or Tito killed anyone either. He also seems to imply that Communism and Socialism are synonymous.

Yeah, kids will be kids, but when colleges hang up/sell posters of him? That kind of stupidity makes me laugh.

English professor questions historical orthodoxy. Theology professor questions evolution. This also took place during a debate in which he was taking up the "liberal" position.

Why are we paying any attention to this?

Curious that these guys are willing to destroy their careers for the sake of pride alone. It's not easy becoming a tenured professor. Unless you're Piggy, then you have to turn down the barrage of offers.

Actually it is. I oppose legislating against holocaust denial. History should be judged on the evidence, not on the offence it may cause to some group or other. Holocaust deniers are hopelessly wrong but so are 9/11 truthers, creationists and this English professor.

He was arguing against libertarians. I find their offence at his rewriting of history to fit the point he was debating to be laughably hypocritical.

I would expect a history teacher to be fired for promoting the notion that Stalin didn't kill anyone if this promotion was made in class to students. Teachers who knowingly teach demonstrably wrong information to students because of their political beliefs (and religion is a political belief, there is no distinction between them in my mind) should be fired. This should not be a controversial viewpoint.

This was not a history teacher in a history class though. It was an English professor in a debate setting.

He's still an English professor talking outside his field of expertise about an area influenced by his personal beliefs. Anyone is free to demonstrate why he is wrong.

I think the bigger issue for Americans is their continuing hang-up about Communism. I mean seriously, a professor at a State college who sympathises with the political Left? OH MY GOD THE COLD WAR IS BACK ON.

Fair enough but only my wife gets to call me buttplug. Oh and some of her friends.

I'm just not understanding the outrage.
