Hmm

My great uncle and aunt must have faked their deaths! I guess my anger at Stalin was misplaced.

Because...

the tooth fairy told him so!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

LOL!

At http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egyIj2yXZ9k#t=6m53s you see the other guest speaking of what he witnessed, and said he (who was from Russia, I gather) had never seen such a Stalin-loving person even in Russia among Communist Party members!

And furthermore, said he was the "worst professor in America" or something to that effect!

Soviet POW's

How many Soviet POW's were executed or died in Gulags after the war for surrendering to Germans.

Ie. Living in comfort and acquiring western tastes while in German camps while their comrades were suffering ;)

Any ordinary Soviet who was in the west and returned was most likely executed or severely punished from what I read and heard.

Heck, when the Soviets invaded the Czechs, the soldiers did not even know what country they were in after they got off the trucks lol

He's a typical tenured professor in a liberal college

He's a typical tenured professor in a liberal college. And, he might have an argument: according to Soviet law, all of the trials and executions and prison terms were legal and just, with signatures of the politburo members affixed to each and every order of execution. There was no "crime" insofar as the courts were concerned; how could there be?

However, anyone who's surprised by his stuborn, pig-headed, defiant, demagogic, and expletive-laced rebuke must never have attended a college history course.

As a history majour, I can tell you this guy is an archtype. Most of them seem to have severe personal and mental problems, and have no shame in projecting their weirdness onto the classroom.

For example, my first class in Russian Revolutionary History was all about how Abraham Lincoln was Adolf Hitler's Role Model... and it went down hill from there.

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

Lincoln was a role model for radical communists and socialists

they loved him because he was able to use state power to literally destroy those that crossed him. They aspired to be like him. Tom DiLorenzo has spoken and written stuff about Lincoln worship amongst commies and socialists.

What is chilling is that many "freedom loving" hard-core STATISTS of today also love Lincoln for those same reasons. To crush dissent.

Another bump for GULAG

I've finished volume 1 and am about 2/3rd through volume 2. Even though it is an incredibly long series I relish reading it slowly because it is full with satire and meaning. I would also recommend "The First Circle"

"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."
Thomas Jefferson

Bought both volumes last month

It is a brilliantly written series. Such a chilling warning into the evils of govt and man that occurred not so long ago and are poised to happen again. Stalin was a mass-murderer.

I wasted a few minutes on this video

then I saw the rebuttal link below and had some renewed hope.

Then I went to amazon.com and read the reviews of this book by Furr's fellow travelers.

so sad.

The whole purpose of this book is to gain credibility for communist thought, which apparently is very easy amongst the under 30 crowed, who have little to no memories of anything communist or much in the way of stories from their elders. They want to believe they have been lied to about communism in this country, so an appeal to their naivete is so easily made by a "learned" scholar such as Furr (no doubt, we all have been lied to in US "history" class). But Furr lies to his audience are as good if not better than accepted US "history".

When I hear lefties, liberals, socialists and communists talking about "fact checks" I know the snow job is coming. "Fact checking" is their new bludgeon. Be warned, anything done under the rubric of "fact checking" is now gospel to them.

They see it on the internet at "fact checking" sites, so it must be true. This is all this book is, one big "fact check" on Khrushchev's speech. It must be true!

Thank YOU

Big thanks to Young Americans For liberty for exposing this pinko

Truth is Treason...

He should be immediately FIRED!

For such lies and rudeness, on top of that.

But we know that universities around the nation actually LOOK FOR and purposely HIRE such propaganda peddlers. This has been going on for well over a hundred years.

I'm surprised not at the clapping of the zombies, but that there was actually some boo-ing going on, and I'm surprised that the student (I'm assuming the questioner was a student) had enough historical knowledge and disgust of communism to even challenge the prostitute professor.

And furthermore, I'm surprised that a fight didn't break out or that that truly traitorous prof wasn't physically escorted from the premises. That man has a criminal mind and is evil.

Big Bump Rex84 for Solzhenitsyn

I slogged through the 3 volumes of Audio (90 hrs) on Audible last summer. The people allowed themselves to become subservient to the state and developed a culture of snitching on each. They relied on the state for self preservation and petty personal gains and they became sub-human.

Then in 20-30 years into it in volume 3, some crazy Ukranians in the prison start "eliminating" the stool pigeons and fighting back and put the entire system back on its heels.

Don't believe the American Exceptionalism nonsenes. We are no different from those Russians. We will become sub-human if we let the state control us.

Thanks

I hadn't made it past volume one yet; I was listening to it at work but it put me in such a bad mood I had to quit listening. Sounds like I should stick with it to volume three and I may come out of the whole experience with a positive outlook. You have given me something to look forward too.

Not quite free, but

I found a copy of Gulag Archipelago at a yard sale for fifty cents a few weeks ago. Picked it up, naturally. Good recommendations.

A signature used to be here!

Awesome find!

I got a copy of The First Circle for a dollar at the Goodwill Bookstore, but it's still on my massive shelf of yet to be read books.

Scary...especially the clapping

What's interesting throughout history (besides communist regimes killing its citizens) is that communism is defended by a revisionist form of history saying big centralized govt is good and everyone lived in harmony. Now besides the millions of people who lived through it that say otherwise, here we are, growing towards that very same system ever so slowly and yet we see its horrific outcomes and it is an exact mirror of those things we claim communist regimes did. So you tell me how we're wrong and how we can expect different as the state expands its power?

The state currently kills its own citizens, arrests those who peacefully protests, limits speech, controls the press, and the list goes on. How can we seriously consider this guy's words when our country is already doing these things more and more and we're not even fully communist? How can a state have total control without total tyranny? This includes killing people to keep the blinds on people's eyes and keep them in line. This guy is a liar and those who are clapping need to seriously consider what is going on in our country and consider what an expansion of our state would look like...the answer is a Stalinist regime.

I might also add that the US revises its history too

We can see the same type of thing in the US, praising the triumph of the state throughout our history during rough times. However, when you really look at it, the truth is the state has been the cause of our issues and trampled upon its people at various points in time. What this guy is doing and what our own govt does are no different. They lie to uphold the power and benevolence of the state regime (communist or not).

Well Said

If you look at how history is taught today, George Washington is a genius leader and Thomas Paine just wrote a pamphlet to incite the people. No one is taught the actual content of that pamphlet because it contains the American Enlightenment - it is the Ron Paul Revolution we are still trying to teach and the philosophical basis for individual liberty.

We cannot teach children about freedom....dangerous.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

The clapping that happened before he said

"no crime" doesn't concern me as much. There are probably communists in the crowd, that's pre-existing creepiness, the clapping to support someone who challenges numbers isn't extra creepy as it's common to believe your own position's crimes are at least exaggerated.

It's the clapping after the statement "no crime" that's most creepy. I hope maybe it was in response to a counter-comment the microphone didn't catch, or some audience plants because any random crowd, even containing communists, should run this guy out on a rail in a burst of unanimity.

As per Professor, Katyn Massacre was NOT ordered by Stalin

He even professes on his university website that Katyn massacre was not done by Stalin:

http://msuweb.montclair.edu/~furrg/pol/discuss_katyn041806r....

Quote: "..And THAT would mean that "the Soviets did it" version of the Katyn Massacre is wrong, and that the Soviets almost certainly did not "do it." Maybe they did something along the lines of what Kaganovich evidently alleged -- see my own Katyn page, at http://www.tinyurl.com/katyn-the-truth -- but NOT the whole massacre as alleged..."

It's funny that the point

It's funny that the point he's trying to argue is that the Soviets only did some of the massacre and the Nazis did the rest of it. And that somehow defends Stalin in not killing anybody?

I don't see why everyone is so outraged

Democracies have also killed millions of people. In the U.S. it started with slavery and native peoples, the Civil War, more native peoples, Japanese-american interment camps, Vietnamese and now muslims. Look at the other european powers in the UK there was the potato famine, the highland clearances, oppression in Africa, Arabia, and India. France was just as bad as the UK, Maybe the Russians were a bit harsher during the soviet era, or maybe they oppressed better writers, but the bottom line is

Powerful Centralized governments kill lots of people and take away your liberty.

I see your point. You could

I see your point. You could expand your comment to atrocities in the ancient world: Romans did ethnic cleansing, Greeks owned slaves, Aztecs sacrificed people, and on and on. It takes honesty to wake up to this fact. I would add that even non-centralized systems can be murderous-although probably not to the same extent. Take the history of Gengis-Khan, he had a really bad time in a tribal society when he was young just because his father was poisoned and died.

Sure, what's one more lie in the "history" books, really.

I mean, things are getting so damned ridiculous these days, in a few years the story will be that Stalin rode in on a magical unicorn and, using his wonderful powers of communism, brought peace and prosperity to the whole world.

We're not just approaching idiocracy, we're already there.

Cyril's picture

It's not about the who, the when, or how many

It's not about the who, the when, or how many.

It's about the gross lie, masquerade, denial.

I'd walk to you.

Stab you in the back.

You'd die, while your spouse or kid would witness.

Decades later one of them would give account of how I killed you.

In turn my spouse or kid, knowing the same, would claim angrily, with the benefit of a position of presumed academic authority :

"He didn't ! At most, just some knife did !"

How do you expect your beloved would react to that insult ?

(metaphor for his history rewriting)

That's how I feel for History before these frauds of knowledge, this sort of "professor".

They betray everything to serve their ego, arrogance, ignorance, envy : memory, language, logic. Even human compassion.

Oh, and we have TO PAY them to educate our kids. Of course. That wouldn't be ugly enough a situation without that. Would it ?

Lenin must be ecstatic in his grave. It worked.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.
