Obama Press Secretary Jay Carney’s Home Decorated with Soviet-era Propaganda Posters


The Spring issue of the Washingtonian Mom magazine contains a profile of White House Press Secretary Jay Carney’s wife, ABC News’ Good Morning America correspondent Claire Shipman. The article features an interesting picture taken from inside their home. In the background, the photo oddly reveals that the couple has decorated their residence with two framed Soviet-era propaganda posters.

Might these be collectivist subliminal messages? Or maybe it confirms President Barack Obama’s socialist/communist leanings as demonstrated in the selection of the members of his administration?

One of the posters is a print of this iconic design by artist Dmitry Moor. It shows a soldier pointing his finger with a text asking, “Have YOU Enlisted?” in Russian:

March on Ame-RED-ica to the website and enlist in the “people’s” revolution!

The other poster prominently features a female factory worker, which was printed on June 26, 1941, just days after Stalin joined the Allies to fight the Axis powers during World War II.

The poster depicts a woman replacing a man’s name tag with one that bears her own name, and the script commands: “Women! Learn production, replace workers who went to the front! The stronger the hinterland – the stronger the front!”

Carney and Shipman met in Moscow during the 1990s while he was writing for Time, and she worked for CNN. It was a match made in Marxist “heaven.”

IJReview poses this thought-provoking question: “What are the chances that Putin’s friends have pro-American posters at their homes?” Doubtful to say the least.

To date, Carney has not responded to any requests for a statement about the posters. It’s hard to defend such outlandish home decor.

Hating Jesus: The American Left's War on Christianity

by Matt Barber with Paul Hair

The secular left doesn’t merely have a disagreement with Christianity. These are not people with whom one may reason, compromise or even disagree. They are dedicated to evil. They demand nothing less than the abolition of the biblical worldview, and the destruction of Christ’s followers right along with it.

Now is the time to fight back. If you are someone, Christian or not, who refuses to see Christianity wiped out (like it ever could be) and your children indoctrinated into pure evil, then sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option.
