I present here a small selection of Ringo's May Day pictures; visit his site to see dozens more photos from the rally.
When I tell people that public political rallies are more and more being led by communists and socialists, most
folks simply don't believe me. Aw, come on, you're just giving decent protesters an extreme label, they say.
No, actually, I'm not: The communists freely and proudly declare their affiliation.
And the SEIU has no problem marching arm-in-arm with them.
'Smash Capitalism' is a slogan the SEIU apparently endorses or at least doesn't mind marching behind.
In case you think the SEIU is some peripheral out-of-the-mainstream organization:
The SEIU devoted $28 million to Obama's campaign, making the SEIU 'the organization that spent the most
one of his closest confidants?
The individual who has visited the Obama White House the most:
SEIU President Andy Stern, who has visited 53 times.
Obama is closely linked with the SEIU.
The SEIU is closely linked with communists.
You do the math.
Did I say communists? Sorry, I meant Communists (with a capital 'C').
Note how the Communists that day (like the women on the right in this photo) carried solid red flags symbolizing
their ideology. Keep that in mind as you view the next photo
One of the SEIU leaders picked up a Communist flag and led a contingent of rank-and-file SEIU members.
Everyone was OK with that.
The way you can identify the SEIU members in all these pictures: They're the ones in purple t-shirts carrying
So, as you can see, the communists and the union members intermingled as the march progressed.
In case you were wondering what the SEIU was saying during all of this, here's a video of the SEIU chanting
'Legalization or REVOLUTION!'
And it wasn't just the SEIU at the march other 'normal' unions like
the AFL-CIO were on hand as well.
There were plenty of teachers unions attending too, and they brought
along many of their public school students for some good old-fashioned communist indoctrination,.
Most of the idiots in the US who walk around with Che buttons or Che shirts do so simply because they foolishly
think he's 'cool.' These hardcore communists carry his image not because he's 'cool,' but because he was one
of the most radical revolutionaries who ever lived. Right up there with Lenin, apparently.
In order to have a more 'civil dialogue' with their political opponents, the marchers made a puppet of a demonic
Statue of Liberty aligned with the 'Tea Bag Party.'
OK, I guess Hitler comparisons are off the table for now too many people have called it taboo. So what's second
best? The Devil!
Tell me the honest truth: If the Tea Party had marched in a rally behind a banner held up by fascists or neo-Nazis,
don't you think it would have been national news?
But the nation's biggest Obama-supporting political organization
marched behind banners like these, and not a peep about it in
Until recently, the average American has regarded fascists and communists as equally noxious and equally malignant.
As well they should have. But the drive these days by the left side of the spectrum is to make communism and socialism
somewhat less remarkable and more palatable. For two years they angrily denied the Tea Party accusation that Obama's
policies and supporters had a socialist bent. But in recent months, as the accusation had started to gain traction, the
new leftist tactic has become: 'What's so bad about socialism after all? You're demonizing a very
popular and respectable ideology!'
This needs to go out all around the UNITED STATES in 2011.
