Help Stop Grover Furr

Montclair State's Grover Furr praises Stalin

Grover Furr, a University English Professor, holds extremist, communist and pro-Stalinist views. In his university lectures and his writings, Grover Furr denies the murder of millions by Stalin. He claims that the Ukrainian man-made famine, Holodomor, was not organized and carried out by Stalin. He says that the Katyn massacre of Polish officers by Stalin's NKVD did not occur, and that the USSR did not invade Poland in 1939. For Mr. Furr, Stalin never did anything wrong, and was never responsible for orchestrating the deaths of millions of his own innocent citizens. His positions are outrageous and the moral equivalent of being a Holocaust denier!!

Grover Furr recently participated in a debate at Montclair State, where he declared that “I have yet to find one crime – one crime that Stalin committed.”“I know they say he killed 20, 30, 40 million people,” “It’s bullshit.”. Watch the video of these absurd remarks here:
Grover Furr is an English literature professor at Montclair State University in New Jersey. The State of NJ pays his salary and allows him to promote his extremist views on his State sponsored web site:

Even more troubling is the fact that he uses his position as an English professor at Montclair State to foist his extreme brand of Stalinism upon his literature students who must endure his political slant in class. Here is what one student wrote about him on “Absolutely horrible. The class had nothing to do with its title--"the coming of age theme." It was about politics and communism. I am NEVER taking a class taught by him again.”
