Do you remember Van Jones, admitted Communist and 9/11 truther, that resigned from the Obama Administration in June of 2009? Or maybe you recall Anita Dunn, former White House communications director who once upon a time said that Mao Zedong was one of the two philosophers that she admired the most?
Well, it appears that they are in good company. Jay Carney, current Obama Administration White House Press Secretary hearts Soviet propaganda. Perhaps he’s reminiscent about the millions that marxist Uncle Joe (Joseph Stalin) killed during his reign of the Soviet Empire. One can imagine that Carney’s miffed that Uncle Joe didn’t even come close to the millions murdered by Chairman Mao.
However, all hope is not lost. Surely Carney and his wife, ABC News contributor Claire Shipman, are taking lessons so that they can dance together on the graves of good American when the great American Communist Revolution comes and their dreams of a New World Order are fulfilled.
The moral blindness of the American Ruling Class is on display. The Washingtonian Magazine, a glossy lifestyle and politics rag, has published a fawning profile of D.C. power couple Jay Carney and Claire Shipman that was a bit more revealing than intended. At the top of the piece was a photo of mom Claire with her son and daughter, flipping a fried egg in their beautiful kitchen/great room.
Ms. Shipman appears the absolute epitome of a have-it-all contemporary woman, able to work at a powerful and glamorous job (part-time at ABC News), raise two adorable children, and maintain the type of house most Americans can only dream about, while hubby works directly for the POTUS and faces the national media daily. Oh, and at 51 she is still beautiful.
Well, how about those Soviet propaganda posters in the background? The Week noticed, and highlighted them, and Drudge put the story up.
Now, to be fair, both sides of the power couple studied Russian during their Ivy League educations (he: Yale, she: Columbia) and became Moscow correspondents for major news agencies (he: TIME Magazine back when it still mattered, she: CNN), where they met prior to the fall of the USSR. But the fact that they seem to be nostalgic for the communist era tells us a lot.
