Carney's Red Art
American Thinker ^ | April 13, 2014 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 04/13/2014 1:28:59 PM PDT by neverdem

Now that we know that Presidential spokesman Jay Carney and his wife, ABC correspondent Claire Shipman decorate their house with Soviet art, it is time to take a look at exactly which messages the DC power couple choose to surround themselves and their children with.

First, take a look at the photograph provided by the Washingtonian Magazine, and annotated by The Week:

Now, let’s focus on the poster on the right...

It's not our fight, but how timely as Russia resumes aggression against its neighbors.

They met each other in Russia, so hanging Soviet art is cute. I mean, if you met your spouse in Germany, wouldn’t you want to hang Third Reich propaganda posters in your home?

The wealthy lifestyle of this family is typical of the hypocrisy routinely practiced by libtard Marxist sympathizers.

There's a show on the FX Channel called "The Americans". It's set in the early '80s. Two KGB agents pose as your average suburban American couple with two kids. An FBI agent just happens to move in across the street and so ensues a number of close encounters that require the KGB agents to lie their way through. The tension is palpable but the agents lie so smoothly, the FBI guy buys it time after time.

Now I'm not saying Jay Carney and Claire Shipman are KBG agents.

But then, the KGB is not called the KBG anymore is it?

Parental guidance alert: Extremely strong language and sexual situations. Stuff I didn't know you could say or show on non-pay cable channels.

It all fits. Lysenko was the ideal role model for scientists in Obama’s America. The “science is settled” and the “debate is over”. Those that do not conform are purged and may face arrest.

There was another picture of them in his library. It was obviously photoshopped as he had three copies of War and Peace.

I am as red white and blue as the next guy. I find a lot of WWII posters to be fascinating. Including German and Russian propaganda.

Doesn’t make me a nazi or a commie.

I accept your explanation for yourself but frankly anyone else if I see Nazi or Communist propaganda posters in their house, I think they are what they appear to be.

I was just thinking about war trophies (the Cold War was a war after all). And this family looks as wholesome as. . . any American family I’ve ever met. But, ya know, Mr. Carney is at least a pink dupe propagandist, if not a full-blown tovarisch of the Komsomol. I would not display a Soviet poster in my kitchen.

No, but I do have a collection of us, Brit, and Russian posters. They are in albums in my office. I live in a predominantly Jewish town. It would be insane for me to hang anything nazi on my wall.

“”Do they run a bakery out of their home?””

My first thought was who on earth has that much bread or pastry for breakfast??

I think it has to do with the “presentation.” I would probably enquire about why they had them up. If the answer was “ we met in Moscow when we were assigned there,” that would be an OK answer.

I mean they are not Lenin or Marx.

For some reason I can’t help but think that there is not only propaganda in the background but that the entire picture is staged. Bedclothes to neat, makeup just right, lighting just perfect, flipping egg over the floor and not the stove, etc., etc..

But this is the guys house. What he does in his house is his own business. In his office? Different altogether. And I always thought his wife was cute.

My MIL who now lives with us will be 100 next month. Her father was a German Mennonite farmer in Ukraine and left to study in Berlin just a short time before the country was communized. After a short hiatus in Berlin, the family (he had married in Ukraine a widowed English woman with 4 children, had another in Russia, and one more born in Berlin {my MIL}) they were forced to leave again (WWI was breaking out) and went to England, then found a relative to support their immigration to America.

Years later he found out his entire family of 13 siblings had either been shot or sent to Siberia-the males shot, the females exiled.

It was common before WWI, apparently, for all males to join the army for a certain amount of time-2 years I think. The Mennonites would not carry arms and were allowed to serve in the Forestry Service instead.

My MIL can keep me on the edge of my seat with her memories.

Here is another photo from the Washingtonian Magazine spread.

It is as phony as the people in it.

Note the photoshopped duplicate books and the piece of the photoshopped finger.

To pile on to Cyber Liberty’s question…

“It’s one thing to put up Communist propaganda posters in your dorm room or your sixth-floor, walk-up flat that you share with your roommate, but there’s something messed up about using that to decorate a family kitchen.”

Poached eggs in the foreground, flap-jacks stacked a mile high and plenty of bread, strawberries and mountain of croissants - just like the kitchens in the former Soviet era - the yoke’s on you.

When I was growing up in the Maryland suburbs, in the 70s, there were more than a few families with Russian names. Certainly there were those families that all-American and were spies, but I wonder how many others were hiding in plain site?

Funnily enough, I posted this one last night on a different thread. Have not cared much for the series. The frequent references to "Reagan is insanely escalating the Cold War" have left me, well, cold.

I was surprised to discover that Carney feels the need to pretend to be straight in this day and age...
