Members of a Service Employees International Union (SEIU) chapter in Los Angeles turned out arm-in-arm with members of assorted Communist Party and socialist groups last month for their annual May Day demonstration.
If that sentence strikes you as jarring, be forewarned that the photo-essay reporting the demonstration by Southern California citizen-journalist Ringo will quite possibly make your head spin. The photo above of an SEIUer marching with a red flag is tame by comparison with many other shots in the essay.
Some important qualifiers are in order here: Police estimated the crowd at about 10,000, while Ringo put it at 4,000, so this clearly represents the fringe of the fringe on the Left. Still, the photographs speak for themselves. And suggest some very troubling questions about SEIU.
