Anti-Communist ‘Academia’ ALL LIES – Interview with Prof Grover Furr (Video)


No other historical figure in modern times—except for Putin—has been the object of such unrelenting demonisation as Stalin. 

While the Western media and bourgeois academia have no problem rehabilitating the image of international war criminals like George W Bush and his camarilla, or even Hitler, the venom against hardcore communist leaders, or those who oppose the US capitalist empire, remains fierce and unyielding.

The technique of dressing up anti-communist propaganda as ‘objective truth’ is the stock in trade of all academic departments and professors of ‘Soviet Studies.’

Prof. Furr

From George Orwell to Robert Conquest to Solzenytsin, very few people have bothered to check the sources on which they base their sweeping anti-communist ‘conclusions’.

Professor Grover Furr, a talented linguist and Historian, with an interest in the USSR, Stalin and the communist movement, has done just that, and it is his evaluation of ALL the sources and ALL the footnotes that allows him to reach an authoritative opinion on the true value of these ‘bibles of anti-communism. It turns out that the overwhelmingly reactionary Polish and Ukrainian sources are ALL biased, or outright fabrications.

Professor Furr has evaluated the most prominent sources of the bourgeois anti-communist myths: “The Great Terror” by R. Conquest and “Bloodlands” by Timothy Snider. What’s more he has dissected the most prominent “socialist” sources of anti-communist and anti-Stalin myths – those put forward by Khrushchev in his “secret speech” (secret as far as the citizens of the USSR were concerned, but broadcast widely to the imperialists as a symbol of surrender; and to the international communist movement, demoralising and disorganising it most profoundly to this day), that marked the beginning of the revisionist counter-revolution in the USSR, and the ultimate dissolution of Soviet Socialism into ‘market Socialism’ and then outright counter-revolutionary gangster capitalism.

He has also broken down the anti-communist, anti-Soviet and anti-Stalin lies of Trotsky and the Trotskyites.

In this short interview, Prof Furr talks about the evidence, his research method, and how he came to focus on these most profound areas of human history, which still offer rich sources of revolutionary experience and inspiration to the proletariat and toiling masses, struggling as we are under the yoke of oppressive finance capital and its web of world domination and political and military suppression. In the words of Stalin: “I know that after my death a pile of rubbish will be heaped on my grave, but the wind of History will sooner or later sweep it away without mercy.” Prof Furr has made a valuable contribution. We must pick up the political tasks, learn the lessons of the Bolshevik revolutionary movement and experience and build a revolutionary party capable of destroying exploitation of man by man and nation by nation; wiping away the historical crimes of this decadent era and building a bright and optimistic future for humanity. We will follow this interview with his presentation: “Khrushchev lied” and a Q&A session that followed.

Parting shot—a word from the editors
The Best Definition of Donald Trump We Have Found

In his zeal to prove to his antagonists in the War Party that he is as bloodthirsty as their champion, Hillary Clinton, and more manly than Barack Obama, Trump seems to have gone “play-crazy” — acting like an unpredictable maniac in order to terrorize the Russians into forcing some kind of dramatic concessions from their Syrian allies, or risk Armageddon.However, the “play-crazy” gambit can only work when the leader is, in real life, a disciplined and intelligent actor, who knows precisely what actual boundaries must not be crossed. That ain’t Donald Trump — a pitifully shallow and ill-disciplined man, emotionally handicapped by obscene privilege and cognitively crippled by white American chauvinism. By pushing Trump into a corner and demanding that he display his most bellicose self, or be ceaselessly mocked as a “puppet” and minion of Russia, a lesser power, the War Party and its media and clandestine services have created a perfect storm of mayhem that may consume us all.
