Thanks and based!


So what is the Groverr Furr meme
Is he actually good?

What is the controversy surrounding him


TL;DR: He's a hardcore Stalin defender that made a name by debunking Katyn and numerous other anti-Soviet mythology as well as Cornman's anti-Stalinist attack. The Red Text is a literal quote of his. He is by far one of the best sources of unwavering defense of the Soviet Union and has never been actually debunked or properly argued against by anyone because at best you can only claim he is biased - his sources are rock-solid.

A particular book that I recommend is Blood Lies, a debunk of Timothy Snyder's (and Anne Applebaum's) holodomeme book, Blood Lands.


Thanks, comrade

What makes a history source good?

I've always wondered, like what is the criteria

There was some anti-stalin author who made up stuff about stalin's secret child

But even people not on the left said his sources were not good

How did they do that


Meant to reply >>222475


Sources that are primary like original documents and eyewitness accounts by reliable people
are considered the most accurate and reliable. Citation is also important, you can't just make a claim and refer to a book, a page and paragraph number matters as does the primary source of the book. Moreover diverse sources matter. For example the entire "canniabal gulag island is reliant on 1 anti-communist author, Werth and his primary source boiled down to hearsay. Furr points that kind of thing out in many of the debunks he wrote, and provided at least one reliable source to counter it.

TL;DR: Historiographic citation and sourcing is often a game of pseuds (like Robert Conquest) dumping source names to their claims, and seeing if anyone had the patience to notice it VS good faith citation by actual historians (Like J. Arch Getty).

I am glad he is not a bitch but also keeps his composure


An infantile revisionist liberal professor and anti-communist was teaching a class on Rosa Luxemburg, a known Anti-Leninist.

"Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship Anton Pannekoek and accept that he was the most advanced Marxist the world has ever known, even greater than Mao Tse tung!"

At this moment, a brave, anti-revisionist, Marxist-Leninist who had memorized all of Mao's quotations from the Little Red Book and fully recognized the fascist nature of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution stood up and exclaimed a question.

"Infantile "Left-Wing" Communist! Who is Rosa Luxemburg?"

The arrogant Councilist smirked quite liberally and smugly replied "An Anti-Leninist theorist and revolutionary, you stupid activist."

"Wrong. She is a Leninist and revolutionary vanguardist. If she was such a spontaneist, then why did she compliment Lenin?"

The professor was visibly shaken, and dropped his chalk and copy of Endnotes. He stormed out of the room crying those petite-bourgeois colonialist tears. The same tears imperialists cry for "intervention" when they chauvinistically try to argue that the DPRK needs to be crushed. There is no doubt that at this point our professor, Guy Debord, wished he had studied dialectics and become more than a pathetic CIA shill.

The students applauded and all became anti-imperialists that day and accepted Abimael Guzmán as the highest Marxist theorist to yet exist. A wild dog named "democratic centralism" ran into the room and began organizing a workers party. State and Revolution was read several times, and Joseph Stalin himself showed up and called all the students filthy Poles and homos.

The professor lost his tenure and was fired the next day. He was given an intense struggle session and forced to give a self-criticism before his gulag sentencing.

And the students name? Grover Furr.


Reminds me of the Hoxha video which I can't find :(


Wow okay thanks
This history thing is actually pretty extensive work, I just thought you could sit in a chair all day

But I guess you would have to go out and interview people and places too get eyewitnesses and shit

But Ultimately it still seems flawed, and people can make shit up

You are right, It is a game of pseuds and perspectives
Honestly just believe what you want, Doesn't matter

That's a few centuries later. You're looking at Geoffrey Chaucer ('Middle English') and then they spoke Old English in the earlier half of the medieval period before that.

But others are cool too




Alright, time for our most fervent autists to write a response to this one:


I saw Grover Furr at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything. He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?” I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying. The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter. When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any trotskyite infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.


Sounds like horseshit to me.


I mean I could, but it's retarded,
1) They're not actually disputing or addressing his overall narrative, but attacking details and supposed sources
2) Their main sources are essentially made up of anti-communist 'memoirs' such as Tragedy of the RKKA, a book that has numerous inaccuracies in itself.
3) They take portions out of context.

All in all a poor effort masked by textwalling and quote spam, circlejerked by other idiots.


yeah, sounds like him

Looks fairly good, only thing I'd do is make Stalin more ghostly (a la spectre of communism) since he'd been dead by that point.

also stalin got off easy in the secret speech. most of the blame went to bureaucratic scapegoats and stalin was depicted as out of the loop




To be fair that site isn't very reliable, not all students are aware of it, and not a lot of those that are, care enough to post, most people that post there are those that got really assblasted over the course. I recall a teacher at my school that had horrible scores on the site, but my fears of a terrible teacher had been unfounded, people that did the ratings just didn't like the class and failed because they didn't try.

You still need to say why Grover is a crackpot.



eh, not exactly a good source to anything really, in his newest holodomor video he goes on to show the sources and he exposes how the pro-genocide sources only 2 are valid, but the funny thing is these two sources only justifications are that the creators are serious historians, even tought they are spewing libel.
not only that early in that same video he stated that one of their sources are flufed up to appeal to authority, but his argument for accepting these two as good is exactly the same thing, it's apealing about their authority of being "good historians", it's like he did not want to put that every source of the pro-holodomor side was bullshit, so he had to do a lil bit of both sides.
he also deny the actions of the kulaks in their sabotage and reduces the scope of the aid the soviets did for that catastrope, effectively puting a blame in one side and whitewashing another thus transforming the entire situation into another narrative and not an acurrate history lesson.

One thing Stalinists and state socialists in general seem not to have a good answer for why did the Soviet Union reverted back to being market capitalist.Let's be fair it wasn't communist either it was state capitalist economy The two most common answers I see is either Khrushchevand some times Gorbachev took a big poo poo on the economy and caused it to revert back to the capitalist economy. And second being the people voted for it revert back to that of capitalist economy.

These arguments are both very faulty. The first one being that assumes that for Khrushchev to be able to take that big poo poo, he would need complete or at least near complete control of the government. For that to happen shows how easy it is for you take absolute control of the government which is failure of the soviet government. The second argument is faulty is because for it to be true the soviet government must of done a terrible job at giving a socialist education, which is also a failure on the soviet government. And to me the best way to experience a socialist education is live in a socialist economy. Both these 'excuses' push the blame on others with out preforming any self introspection.


Yet Snyder is considered a real historian despite getting btfo by Furr. So maybe you should give him a chance for having exposed a huge anticommunist.
Wtf are you ranting about dude?


your argument is inherently childish nonsense that completely ignores the impact of the reforms made specifically in gorbachev's and Khruschev's times that did reintroduce market aspects into the economy. Also your posilers are retardedly pointless


Why where these reforms introduced.


It's cool but feels too literal idk, might be a personal taste


>The first one being that assumes that for Khrushchev to be able to take that big poo poo, he would need complete or at least near complete control of the government. For that to happen shows how easy it is for you take absolute control of the government which is failure of the soviet government.
Khrushchev launched a military coup, acting as the agent of careerist burocrats.
<Khruschchev rose to power via an undemocratic military takeover, a coup de tat, and used the military to kill, imprison, intimidate and marginalize his enemies.
<According to historian Iuri Zhukov, Khrushchev managed to win some of the party bureaucracy on his side by opposing Stalin’s proposed democratic and egalitarian reforms which were supported by Malenkov and Beria.

A reformed Eurocommunist post-Marxist New Leftist Frankfurt School professor and social democrat was teaching a class on Nikita Khrushchev, known revisionist.
"Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship Leon Trotsky as the most class conscious revolutionary of all time and accept the Fourth International as the only legitimate representative of the interests of the workers of the world!"
At this moment a brave, revolutionary, unreformed Stalinist NKVD veteran who had an appreciation for socialist realist art and read a chapter of Capital every night before going to sleep stood up and waved the red flag. "If Trotsky was so great, why wasn't the revolution permanent?"
The arrogant professor smirked quite bourgeoisly and smugly replied, "Because the Soviet Union was a deformed workers state, you idiot gerontocrat!"
"Wrong. Comrade Stalin purged Russia of the kulaks and all enemies of the workers. If your theory of revolution was correct, we would have achieved communism by now."
The professor was visibly shaken, and dropped his chalk and copy of A People's History of the United States. He stormed out of the room crying those social-fascist crocodile tears. There is no doubt that at this point our professor, Noam Chomsky, wished he had adopted the policies of the Third Period and become more than an infantile leftist bourgeois stooge. He wished so much that he had not betrayed the revolution, but he himself had sold it out!
The students applauded and all sang the State Anthem of the USSR and accepted Socialism in One Country as the best path forward for proletarian cause. An eagle named "Slavoj Zizek" flew into the room and perched atop a copy of "Pravda" and sniffed snot onto its print. The last sentence of the "The Communist Manifesto" was read several times, and Sergei Eisenstein himself showed up and demonstrated how to roll a baby down the Odessa steps. The professor lost his tenure and was taken out back and shot the next day. He loved Big Brother.
The student's name? Lavrentiy Beria.


Guess he did not search too much to find trotsky.


why did they make trotsky look cool


sometimes propaganda backfires hard.


Stalin rehabilitated the Church
he doesn't deserve the honor of satanic imagery


LOL and he is doing the Kazatsky kick


>at best you can only claim he is biased - his sources are rock-solid.

people like to use argument from authority against him by pointing out that he "merely" has a degree in medieval history and that thefore, this somehow discredits his works on soviet history, which draw heavily from sources he was the first to translate into English


>Robert Conquest
that dude personally revived holodomor by reworking the entire myth to match the statistics of soviet mass industrialization. What started as an easily debunked lie in the 30s got teeth when he re-tooled it to match the data.


Are there really no other English-speaking scientific socialist historical materialists that go over the USSR with more appropriate credentials?


historians can't do soviet apologetics in western academia
bolshevism is the toppest thought crime


>If Trotsky was so great, why wasn't the revolution permanent
because of the political ascendancy of the bureaucracy in the USSR, and the failure of revolution to spread in Europe. Both of which fed into each other. Which is to say, because of misleadership of the working class.

J. Arch Getty and a handful of others can be called relatively reliable sources bu they'r not pro-Soviet per se. Furr is one of the only ones in the West that made dedicated efforts to translating and writing about the USSR and surrounding topics, Lenin-hat said it all in >>256464

Given the failures in Germany, France and Poland, that had many regards better material grounds for a fully socialist revolution in the sense Marx intended compared to Russia, it isn't surprising.

Guys grover furr is ally of the infracels fuck this racist chauvinist nazi


Grover Furr's dull propaganda is not even Bad History, it's no history at all.

Grover Furr is a neo-Stalinist professor who has published quite a few articled defending Stalin and denying his crimes.

His usual m. o. #1:

Skim through some marginal Stalinist source in Russian and absorb its main talking points.

Without however paying attention to detail.

Don't do the actual research, even about the basics.

Reproduce the resulting jumble for "Western" consumption.

Example: from "The “Official” Version of the Katyn Massacre Disproven? Discoveries at a German Mass Murder Site in Ukraine", Socialism and Democracy, 2013, vol. 27, issue 2, pp. 96-129:

The 1943 German report on Katyn states that the following item was found in one of the mass graves:

eine ovale Blechmarke unter den Asservaten vor, die folgende Angaben enthält T. K. UNKWD K. O. 9424 Stadt Ostaschkow

[…] probable English translation would be: Prison Kitchen, NKVD Directorate, Kalinin Oblast’ [prisoner, or cell, or badge number] 9 4 2 4 town of Ostashkov

None of the “transport lists” from the camp at Ostashkov were for transport to Katyn or anywhere near Smolensk. All these lists state that the Polish prisoners were sent to Kalinin. Therefore the person buried at Katyn who had this badge in his possession had been shipped to Kalinin. But, obviously, he was not shot there. The badge was unearthed at Katyn. Therefore, the owner of this badge was also shot at Katyn, or nearby

The "prison kitchen" thing comes straight from the Russian denial literature (actually T. K. means trudovaya koloniya, work colony), which is how we know where Furr got this "argument". Needless to say, Furr is deeply ignorant of the fact that POWs were sent from camp to camp, like the 112 people transferred from Ostashkov to Kozielsk on 19.11.1939. So literally none of Furr's conclusions follow.

His usual m. o. #2: if the evidence seems to support Stalin, just jump to conclusion without sufficient data or research.

The example above also belongs here, but here is another one, which is the thrust of the above article:

In 2011 and 2012 a joint Polish-Ukrainian archeological team partially excavated a mass execution site at the town of Volodymyr Volyns’kiy, Ukraine. Shell cases found in the burial pit prove that the executions there took place no earlier than 1941. In the burial pit were found the badges of two Polish policemen previously thought to have been murdered hundreds of miles away by the Soviets in April–May 1940. These discoveries cast serious doubt on the canonical, or “official,” version of the events known to history as the Katyn Massacre.

He then goes on and on about how these finds allegedly disprove the Soviet guilt for Katyn. Except… they don't. The badges were found not on the corpses but in the bulk layer with rubbish (household items etc.) above the corpses. The archival research showed that at least one of the policemen was detained in Volodymyr Volynski for weeks in 1939. Which means that his badge (and probably that of the other policeman, about whom less is known) was taken from him then, and when the Germans overtook the prison they eventually disposed of the useless inmates' belongings (still kept in the prison) in the burial area (Ubity v Kalinine, zakhoroneny v Mednom, 2019, vol. 1, pp. 79-81).

His usual m. o. #3: simply accept the Stalinist claims at face value while ignoring the documents undermining them.

E. g. he notoriously accepts the coerced testimonies for the Moscow show trials. The problem? He doesn't deal with most of the veritable mountain of evidence that these testimonies and the trials were staged.

Or, to continue with his Katyn article, he simply accepts the authenticity of the documents alleged to have been found by the Soviets in the graves, without addressing the fact that the "key" ones must be fake, to wit: the allegedly exhumed "documents" of Araszkiewicz and Lewandowski mention absolutely non-existent "ON" POW camps and the Poles in question as POWs later than the spring of 1940, yet we know that these camps never existed not only because there is not a single trace of them in the GUPVI archive (or any trace in real life), but because we have summary documents from the period in question listing all the groups of Polish POWs and the camps where they reside. No "ON" camps are mentioned, and the "missing" Polish POWs in question are listed as transferred to UNKVD in April-May 1940. So whatever happened to them, they were no longer POWs at the time these reports were filed, so the "found" "documents" cannot be authentic. And so, once again, nothing that Furr claims follows from these "documents" actually follows.

This is not history. Not even "bad history" per se. It's basically pure propaganda.

Truly this shitty reddit-spaced fallacious diatribe is an embodiment of Bad-Faith Discussion
Not a real thing, Stalinism isn't even an advertised ideology
>who has published quite a few articled defending Stalin and denying his crimes
Sure anon, nice strawman representation totally not proving your obvious and extreme bias
>Skim through some marginal Stalinist source in Russian and absorb its main talking points. Without however paying attention to detail.
<making claim having no real evidence
Ok fag
>see my articles
Yeah no
1 - this is very unlikely to be your site
2 - The entire "debunk" is just taking out of context quotes and only some of the citations and making statements of "dats rong!" and then providing very poorly cited ALSO out of context "information" that is then extrapolated as debunking the specifically cropped quotes being fallacied.
Your "first mo" attempt encapsulates this, taking a tiny excerpt completely out of context and completely lacking the citation or original Russian documents that Furr cites so that reading this article in a vaccum I have to take your word that Furr said this in this context that you present.
>Furr is deeply ignorant of the fact that POWs were sent from camp to camp
No he is not, you're not presenting the actual argument Furr is making, you're strawmanning one out of an excerpt
>"German documents say diss so its tru, but Soviet documents are icky and rong!"
LMAO this shit is liberal central, German documents are totally legit despite it being a fact that they regularly made shit up for PR, Katyn especially.
>The badges were found not on the corpses but in the bulk layer with rubbish (household items etc.) above the corpses. The archival research showed that at least one of the policemen was detained in Volodymyr Volynski for weeks in 1939. Which means that his badge (and probably that of the other policeman, about whom less is known) was taken from him then, and when the Germans overtook the prison they eventually disposed of the useless inmates' belongings (still kept in the prison) in the burial area
Except the Germans conveniently somehow knew to bury them in the same spot as the bodies and somehow did not discover said bodies until 1943, despite the badges being tossed there a year ago or more. Moreover the decay of the bodies and the presence of dated letters and personal effects that dated to after the Soviets left is evidence Furr goes into but is ignored by you. Even more importantly your source is an article made by the Memorial project of Russia, a site that is dedicated to creating scare-stories about the Gulag and has been caught repeatedly making things up and even presenting forged documents and being disproven multiple times, such as in regards to the "Serpantinka" myth that got popularized by ВДудь in his expose about Kolyma that got debunked by Tubus Show.
>simply accept the Stalinist claims at face value while ignoring the documents undermining them.
Nope the "coerced testimony" revisionism is not confirmed by any concrete evidence and multiple people that witnessed the trial including American Diplomat and non-Communist former Lawyer Joseph Davies, among other people, and this is further seen in the documented testimonies and in the face of those that had been wrongfully accused (such as Rokossovsky) holding strong and refusing to take blame for accusations levied by the Troika courts.
>we know that these camps never existed not only because there is not a single trace of them in the GUPVI archive (or any trace in real life), but because we have summary documents from the period in question listing all the groups of Polish POWs and the camps where they reside.
SO you claim yet you present no citations for us to check this nor a proper citation for us to see if Furr actually made this claim at all, or the context of such a citation if he had actually used it. Moreover you seem to forget the loss of documents and a dirge of fake documents on Polish POWs including those supposedly of the GUPVI. And unlike your dismissal of Furr, you cannot dismiss the trial of the CPSU and the reveal that the many secret documents about Katyn presented at the trial had been dismissed because they had been forgeries.
>nothing that Furr claims follows from these "documents" actually follows.
So you claim yet all you have demonstrated is cherry-picking and copy-pasta. Go fuck yourself Revisionist, Goebbels thanks you for your diligent propaganda.

It's a copy-pasta from leftpol


Grover Furr is now infrared gang



Furr's positions are not supported whatsoever. Literally no major historians of the Purges – Getty, Fitzpatrick, Khlevniuk, etc. – believe that the Moscow Trials were fair or accurate. A quick search on JSTOR will reveal that Furr is neither published nor cited in any peer-reviewed Russian history journal in English, save for a single book review in the Russian History Review. So, not only do professional historians disagree with Furr, they almost universally ignore him as well. In fact the only relevant place he does appear is in a footnote in a paper by J. Arch Getty thanking him for certain information. This is important because Furr relies heavily on Getty and often insinuates that he and Getty have identical views. This, however, is false. For instance: through archival research in the Trotsky papers at Harvard, Getty discovered that Trotsky had connections with a "bloc" in 1932 but concludes that "Trotsky envisioned no 'terrorist' role for the bloc."1 Furr, on the other hand, proclaims that "Getty's discovery in the Trotsky archive corroborates the testimony of the Moscow Trial defendants."2 He further argues that evidence of this bloc's existence past 1932 and its terrorist activities in Trotsky's correspondence have, quite simply, been scrubbed or hidden from the archives.3

This brings us to our second point. Why is Grover Furr not taken seriously in academic Russian history? The answer that there is a concerted effort by professional historians and academic institutions to suppress the truth by falsifying evidence and marginalizing Furr is about as plausible as the claim Big Pharma is suppressing studies that prove herbal remedies cure cancer. The reason is much simpler: quite frankly, Furr's work is amateur and wouldn't even get a passing grade in a decently rigorous undergraduate course. It's laden with dubious argumentation and poor source evaluation.

To give a specific example, let's look at Furr's approach to the lack of non-Soviet sources corroborating or confirming the central charges of the Moscow Trials which pretty much all revolve around collaboration with foreign powers. Furr begins by noting that

In countries still extant it is normal to keep intelligence archives secret indefinitely. This is certainly the case in the USA. We suggest it is logical to suspect the same thing in the case of Germany and Japan.4

This rather conveniently ignores that not only is Nazi Germany no longer extant, but that many of the important government archives in Berlin were under the Soviet occupation zone in Berlin, and neither East German nor Soviet scholars who had access to such documents were known for their fondness for Trotskyists.5 He then goes on to note that there is a "great deal of evidence" that Tukhachevsky with collaborated the Germans – and, in the next sentence, admits that "we have only indirect confirmation of this from German archives" and only "somewhat more direct" from the Czech archives.6 He provides citations for neither "confirmation," nor is it clear what a "somewhat more direct" confirmation is compared to an "indirect" one. In another smoking gun, he brings up that "[r]umor, at least, of [the Moscow Trial defendants'] collaboration [with German General Kurt von Hammerstein-Equord] evidently survived in Hammerstein's family."7 He follows up on all this by saying that the lack of evidence doesn't matter anyway, because "no one should expect a conspiracy like this be documented anywhere, ever, much less in 'in archives.'"8 He cites in his favor the lack of documentation for "the successful conspiracy against Lavrentii Beria," which "must have involved at least half a dozen men." This explanation rather conveniently elides the fact that the coup against Beria involved a handful of people over the course of a couple months at most, as opposed to an alleged clandestine terrorist organization involving thousands of people that operated over years and collaborated with state-level actors. Given the fact we do in fact have documentation for clandestine terrorist organizations at this scale in other instances, it is a bit implausible that no documents exist for this particular case.

Furr, of course, then quickly says there are non-Soviet documents that confirm or corroborate the Moscow Trials charges! He cites four documents:

An admission by the Japanese Minister of War that they were collaborating with "oppositionists," cited in "Soviet Links Tokyo With 'Trotskyism'" in the New York Times, March 2 1937.9 A quick look at this article from the NYT archives reveals it is a dispatch from Vladivostok from the Tass News Agency made by Walter Duranty. Furr either didn't read this carefully or he's deliberately lying about its "non-Soviet" nature.

An "Arao telegram," which was "extant at least in 1962-1963 though never heard from since."10 Generally speaking it's considered bad form to cite texts whose existence is uncertain and whose contents unverifiable – not that he actually reproduces the text of the "telegram" anyway.

A document "in the Czech national archives," "corroborated by correspondence found in German archives."11 In the footnote he notes that "these documents have long been acknowledged by Western and Russian scholars" but neglects to actually tell us which documents these are. Once again, no text is reproduced.

A private admission by NKVD general Lyushkov that there were conspirators working with Tukhachevsky to collaborate with the Japanese military to "inflict defeat upon the Soviet military."12 He cites Alvin D. Coox's two-part article "The Lesser of Two Hells: NKVD General G.S. Lyushkov's Defection to Japan, 1938-1945" but fails to provide a page number (joy!). Nevertheless it appears to be based on a passage from the second part where Lyushkov lists Tukhachevsky as part of a faction in the Red Army which "favored a military putsch."13 Furr, however, neglects to note Coox himself is rather skeptical of taking Lyushov's statements at face value, noting they "reflect[ed] to a degree what his hosts must have wanted to hear."14 In effect, he's cherry-picked a statement from a very long article, much of which does not really support Furr's argument at all.

I could go on, but the whole book is like this – in fact, all his books are like this. He is sloppy with "citations" and cherrypicks constantly. He exhibits classic denialist and conspiracy theory tropes: all the real evidence is purged or missing and all the evidence to the contrary is forged or irrelevant. Lack of evidence is explained away as being part of the conspiracy. He relies on a sympathetic ear and an unwillingness to actually follow up on sources to be taken seriously by anybody.

5 Although rather amusingly he suggests on the same page that Khrushchev possibly had the Soviet archives purged of references to Trotsky's guilt. Although in the mind of an unreconstructed Stalinist Khrushchev might be a Trotskyite, it is worth noting Trotsky was never rehabilitated by the Soviet government and that his literature remained banned until glasnost.

Grover Furr is to Stalin what David Irving is to Hitler.


one of the best and most capable historians of the Stalin period without a question, he goes in to source his sources and even translate untranslated documents of the soviet government to english for the first time.
most of the arguments against this great historian is the same against Douglas Tottle, not actual question to his book, but trying to ruin his reputation to not act in his critics, with stuff like that he is not an actual period so it's invalid, but most of the historians they exalt are not expecialist to any soviet period and most of the time are mercenaries to the service of states enemy to the soviet union thus invalid, like Robert Conquest and Hannah Arendt.
recomendable to all.

>professional historians
Laughable, meaningless term. Robert Conquest and Timothy Snyder are called "professional historians" yet are not. Even if not in regards to Sovietology, Furr is a professional historian by that metric and if anything study of Medieval documentation and historiography is a lot harder than the much more documented 20th century.
> the only relevant place he does appear is in a footnote in a paper by J. Arch Getty thanking him for certain information
And considering Getty is one of the most respected in his field and has had not gone on rants attacking Furr and actually used information he provided directly is indication of much. Even more so Getty worked alongside Gabor and Rittersporn in collaboration with the information dug up by Victor Zmskov on the Gulags that the latter got directly from the archives, being among the very few to have had access to them.
>Furr relies heavily on Getty and often insinuates that he and Getty have identical views
No he does not, Getty is not a communist or pro-Stalin and Furr knows this, Furr specifically refers to Getty as making the same conclusions as he about the situation even as a person that does not have a bias for Stalin as Furr admits he does, this is specifically to provide a demonstration of Objectivity.
>Trotsky had connections with a "bloc" in 1932 but concludes that "Trotsky envisioned no 'terrorist' role for the bloc.
<that "Getty's discovery in the Trotsky archive corroborates the testimony of the Moscow Trial defendants."
These are not mutually exclusive, that is not the accusation levied against Trotsky's main and direct collaborators, that is the accusation levied against other defendants of the trials in regards to their collaboration with foreign powers such as relaying state secrets to military attaches about troop movements or directing state objects such as priority factories and making them targets for sabotage, something well recorded as happening and the animosity of outside countries was very open as if the Intervention did not make this clear.

So to conclude you are taking 2 statements and blatantly trying to tie them together, ignoring that the Moscow Trials are more than an accusation of Trotsky starting a bloc, and had served to address all the 5th Column efforts in the USSR at the time, in the military, party and economic sectors, that is the reason those had been the primary areas that had people affected.

I am not addressing the rest of your drivel because its the same false narrative that this has been - comparing 2 out of context things to make a false conclusion.

Joseph Davies:
"[T]he best judgment seems to believe that in all probability there was a definite conspiracy in the making looking to a coup d’état by the army — not necessarily anti-Stalin, but antipolitical and antiparty, and that Stalin struck with characteristic speed, boldness and strength.’”
“Had a fine talk with Litvinov. I told him quite frankly the reactions in U.S. and Western Europe to the purges; and to the executions of the Red Army generals; that it definitely was bad… Litvinov was very frank. He stated that they had to ‘make sure’ through these purges that there was no treason left which could co-operate with Berlin or Tokyo; that someday the world would understand that what they had done was to protect the government from ‘menacing treason.’ In fact, he said they were doing the whole world a service in protecting themselves against the menace of Hitler and Nazi world domination, and thereby preserving the Soviet Union strong as a bulwark against the Nazi threat. That the world would appreciate what a very great man Stalin was.”
"The Attorney General [Vyshinsky] is a man of about 60 and is much like Homer Cummings; calm, dispassionate, intellectual, and able and wise. He conducted the treason trial in a manner that won my respect and admiration as a lawyer."
"From reports of the previous trials the present case differed in the opinion of many observers here in that there was practically unanimity of confessions here, also greater corroboration, and a more general opinion on the part of disinterested observers that an actual conspiracy was shown to exist against the Soviet government. With an interpreter at my side, I followed the testimony carefully."
"Naturally I must confess that I was predisposed against the credibility of the testimony of these defendants. The unanimity of their confessions, the fact of their long imprisonment with the possibility of duress and coercion extending to themselves or their families, all gave me grave doubts as to the reliability that could attach to their statements. Viewed objectively, however, and based upon my experience in the trial of cases and the application of the tests of credibility which past experience had afforded me, I arrived at the reluctant conclusion that the state had established its case, at least to the extent of proving the existence of a widespread conspiracy and plot among the political leaders against the Soviet government, and which under their statutes established the crimes set forth in the indictment…. I am still impressed with the many indications of credibility which obtained in the course of the testimony. To have assumed that this proceeding was invented and staged as a project of dramatic political fiction would be to presuppose the creative genius of a Shakespeare and the genius of a Belasco in stage production. The historical background and surrounding circumstances also lend credibility to the testimony. The reasoning which Sokolnikov and Radek applied in justification of their various activities and their hoped-for results were consistent with probability and entirely plausible."
"The lesser accused, who were merely tools, amplified in great circumstantial detail their chronicle of crime, and in many instances gave indications that what they were then stating was being uttered for the first time. These and other facts, which I saw, compelled the belief that there may have been much redundant embroidery in the testimony, but that the consistent vein of truth ran through the fabric, establishing a definite political conspiracy to overthrow the present government."
"On the face of the record in this case it would be difficult for me to conceive of any court, in any jurisdiction, doing other than adjudging the defendants guilty of violations of the law as set forth in the indictment and as defined by the statutes."
"I have talked to many, if not all, of the members of the Diplomatic Corps here and, with possibly one exception, they are all of the opinion that the proceedings established clearly the existence of a political plot and conspiracy to overthrow the government."
"The circumstantial detail, apparently at times surprising even to the prosecutor as well as to other defendants, which was brought out by the various accused, gave unintended corroboration to the gist of the charges. The manner of testifying of various accused and their bearing on the stand also had weight with me. The dispassionate, logical, detailed statement of Pyatakov and the impression of despairing candor, with which he gave it, carried conviction. So, too, with Sokolnikov. The old general, Muralov, was particularly impressive. He carried himself with a fine dignity and with the forthrightness of an old soldier. In his “last plea” he said:… 'I refuse counsel and I refuse to speak in my defense because I am used to defending myself with good weapons and attacking with good weapons. I have no good weapons with which to defend myself…. I don’t dare blame anyone for this; I, myself, am to blame. This is my difficulty. This is my misfortune….'"


“There are increasing signs the Russian trials are not faked, but that there is a plot among those who look upon Stalin as a stupid reactionary who has betrayed the ideas of the revolution.” –Comrade Einstein speaking against critics of the trials of traitors within the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.

I’m unsure if you’re trolling or just genuinely retarded. That’s the only source you could find LMAO OH NONONO NOT DAVIES 😂

Charles Bohlen:

“Ambassador Davies was not noted for an acute understanding of the Soviet system, and he had an unfortunate tendency to take what was presented at the trial as the honest and gospel truth. I still blush when I think of some of the telegrams he sent to the State Department about the trial.(p.51)
I can only guess at the motivation for his reporting. He ardently desired to make a success of a pro-Soviet line and was probably reflecting the views of some of Roosevelt's advisors to enhance his political standing at home.(p.52)”

>an excerpt making a unfounded, unexplained claim that "he didn't understand and totally just repeated Roosevelt"
A random, very short excerpt ignoring that, until the War, Roosevelt made his campaign on the basis of moderate social democracy, and in doing so prevented socialist uprising in the USA as he himself stated. This speaks of much considering that the USA has forever been a geopolitical opponent of the USSR. Bohlen's claim boils down to "He's wrong because he wuz pro-commie" despite Davies repeatedly being very reluctant to buy into the Soviet line and being very skeptical of the USSR in general, an opinion that made him hesitate to take the position of Diplomat initially, as he, a libertarian and non-communist upperclass man did not have many sympathies for "gommies".
I find it interesting that the book you refer to is from the 70s, decades after, and during the height of the Cold War, given the mainstream literature on the USSR of the time consisted of anti-communist scare-stories and highly opinionated "memoirs" following a carefully mandated narrative, I have no reason to believe this attack on Davies as anything but character assassination to counter leftists bringing up his memoirs.

The problem is that Davies' narrative is backed by many, MANY other sources and historians. So to summarize your post is nothing but attacking the source and not addressing the argument, not that you do anything other than that to begin with. Keep

I have no reason to believe this attack on Charles Bohlen as anything but character assassination to counter leftists critiquing Davies.

Right so we have two US diplomats giving contradictory opinions on the validity of the Moscow Trials. A classic he said she said. Doesn’t seem to be anything further from this line of questioning.

So would you have any other sources to justify your claim or is Davies all you got 😂

Kind regards.

>A classic he said she said

Nope. One demonstration is a thorough explanation of the Trials, the other is just saying 'N-no he'z rong and totally lieks de gommies".

Keep your snide trash to yourself, thanks.

If you think about it, Stalin did nothing wrong like he did nothing right, he's just a man making his life as it went. He was the cog people who hate or love him want to shine a light on, but a cog nonetheless. Let's be a good human bravely saying death and suffering are bad, but now imagine you need to govern a country against another power that literally wants to exterminate everyone of your population, you didn't expect that so soon because you're a little stupid, and petty and you generally suck. But what about it? You made it, you fought back, and the new world order was shaped after all that. You're the general secretary, even if you manipulated the higher orders of the communist party while killing the majority of whatever opponents could come in your way, there's nothing now. You tried to assassinate Tito a few times but it didn't work out, and you're so afraid of death that you've stopped because of the fear a simple telegram instigated in you. You killed or made people hide so much that the next guy after you was Khrushchev. You made so much about you, and you pushed so many of the capable people, that we got Khrushchev, that we got a fucking thread about a crazy English teacher who is still absolutely and objectively respectable for his capacity for troll; but a cook still.

I'm gonna be deleting stupid incel threads, sex complaining threads, soy threads and so on, until board quality improves. Fair warning.


Incel threads are made by people from 9chan's /leftcel/ btw.


Has there been a vote on that?


mods are the lowest quality posters on this website, I don't know if you're the best person to decide



We discussed it and nobody objects.

Sorry you feel that way.

Facts about nature:

For every duck there's a grain of sand that resembles a cock.

Saber toothed tiger fangs are not teeth, they are hard rape penises for penetrating non-consenting prey.

Conservatives are mammals and they love their mama.

For every cuck, there's a duck penetrating a rock with the cuck's wife. Shameful.

Happy bidding on an easier next life if you believe in reincarnation. if you are born a girl and it's not in developed country, you are screwed literally and figuratively.

You were born in another planet to a single father; but, because he bamboozled the government out of 50 million Chfikes, he was sentenced to death. You had your memories removed and set to grow up in this planet – earth – afterwards, hence your odd nature and uncanny feeling like you are out of place. You later realize that your father uncovered a government's secret plan to kill Horobits and steal their Chungus so they span this narrative of bamboozling government funds to kill him. Now you're seeking revenge.

Cows did indeed piss on your naked body and you did not feel it because you were dead.

There are ghosts in my room. they say they love you and have great day.
