Yale Prof Tries to Make Case That Life Was Better Under the Soviets

The professor supposedly spoke to people who lived in Central Asia and Eastern Europe and they all confirmed this for her.

Yale prof: ‘Every single person I have…asked’ has said ‘life was better under the Soviets’

A Yale University professor claimed on Twitter that all of the people she surveyed in Eastern Europe and Central Asia insisted that “life was better under the Soviets.”

Emily Jane O’Dell is a Yale Law School professor and specializes in Islamic law and civilization.

“Every single person I have I [sic] asked in Central Asia (and Eastern Europe) over the past decade and a half has said life was better under the Soviets — 100 percent,” O’Dell tweeted on Tuesday.

O’Dell also detailed that she spoke with an unnamed “Ivy League professor who said coming to America was the greatest mistake of her life & she will be returning soon to her post-Soviet nation [because] neoliberal late capitalism is devoid of all humanity.”

This unnamed professor also apparently said “at least we were human,” suggesting that capitalists are not human.

O’Dell appears to have deactivated her Twitter account, as it was not accessible at the time of publication.

The professor has previously made news for anti-white remarks.

The Soviets ruined many of those countries. Sadly, they don’t know what real prosperity is, most have had a taste, but there are still areas in abject misery and strife.

“Every single person I have I [sic] asked in Central Asia (and Eastern Europe) over the past decade and a half has said life was better under the Soviets — 100 percent,”

A very Soviet-style statement. She talks to maybe two, both of them (that is, “100%”) feed her the same line, and they remain unidentified so nobody can verify that they even exist. Hey, that methodology served the Soviet Union for seventy years—that doesn’t make it good, but it does make it reliable.

This unnamed professor also apparently said “at least we were human,” suggesting that capitalists are not human.

Actually, she’s right. Like, say, the law of universal gravitation or the rules of algebra, capitalists free markets are notoriously inhuman. We manage, anyway.

Maybe Putin would take her, and she can move to Russia too.

O’Dell also detailed that she spoke with an unnamed “Ivy League professor who said coming to America was the greatest mistake of her life & she will be returning soon to her post-Soviet nation [because] neoliberal late capitalism is devoid of all humanity.”

If she sets up a Go Fund Me deal for her one way ticket back to her post-Soviet homeland, I would be very glad to fund her permanently leaving the “inhumane” USA.

I posit that residents of the worst “food deserts” in the US have more plentiful food than did the average Russian during the Soviet era. I guess it depends on what you mean by “better.”

She’s not quite a professor, but they do keep this undesirable person around the law school …

“[T]he American University of Beirut as the Whittlesey Chair of History and Archaeology and at Sultan Qaboos University in the Sultanate of Oman.”

What’s in a name? The “Whittlesey Chair of History and Archaeology” and “Sultan Caboose University” by any other names would still likely stink.
