New documents have surfaced that allege deep ties between a leftist “Antifa” (read Antifascist) group known as the “Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary” (BAMN), which organized violent riots in Berkeley last week, and a notorious association of pedophile group, the “North American Man/Boy Love Association” or NAMBLA. BAMN’s organizing of protests successfully disrupted talks by former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos and conservative author Ann Coulter.
According to The Daily Caller
, BAMN’s parent organization worked directly with NAMBLA to form BAMN. One of the founders of BAMN, according to the report, is a member of NAMBLA who described society’s repudiation of pedophilia as a veritable “witch hunt.” BAMN was founded in 1995 to serve as a “front group” for the Revolutionary Workers League (RWL) —a Detroit-based radical organization. A number of leading members of BAMN were formerly in RWL.
According to The Daily Caller, internal NAMBLA publications show that RWL as being “supportive of gay rights in general and NAMBLA in particular.” The NAMBLA publications contained erotic tales involving minor males. One NAMBLA bulletin described the RWL as a “NAMBLA ally.”
BAMN founder and co-chair Shanta Driver, according to The Daily Caller’s investigation, has been affiliated openly with RWL since 1983, as shown in “Workers Vanguard,” a communist publication. In a 1995 Los Angeles Times article, Driver identified herself as a member of RWL during a protest in Berkeley.
Eileen Scheff, Driver’s former partner in a law firm, represented BAMN at the Supreme Court. Scheff has been a self-described member of NAMBLA. She was identified in a 1992 NAMBLA bulletin as an RWL member. It was at a press conference in 1991 that Scheff condemned what she called the “witch-hunt” of pedophiles.
“As an activist in the legal and political struggle for lesbian/gay rights and for freedom of sexual expression, I am here to support NAMBLA and to demand that the witch-hunt against it must be stopped,” said Scheff. “The media and police are targeting NAMBLA because it stands for the rights of young people to have consensual sex with whomever they want.” Scheff also wants to see “youth-controlled centers” where children could freely have sex.
