Activists responsible for organizing the protests that conservative speaker Ann Coulter was threatened with this past week have ties to a prominent U.S. pedophilia organization, per The Daily Caller.
A militant leftist group called ‘The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary’ (say that five times fast)—more commonly referred to as By Any Means Necessary (BAMN)—was a group primarily responsible for the plans that eventually led to the cancellation of Ann Coulter’s speech this week.
BAMN’s parent organization was a direct affiliate of the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) prior to the founding of BAMN.

In addition, a member of that parent organization said to have founded BAMN is an admitted member of NAMBLA, which she has described as the victim of a “witch-hunt.”
BAMN, which did not return a phone call and voicemail seeking comment, was founded by the Revolutionary Workers League, a small, Detroit-based Marxist organization. Many of BAMN’s leading members over the years have also been RWL members.
“The Revolutionary Workers League is a Trotskyist organization of which I’m a member,” Luke Massie, one of BAMN’s founders told the Michigan Daily in 2001. “We are proud to have played a part in a whole lot of struggles and to have played a role in the founding of BAMN.”
An anonymous research group, referring to themselves only as “Antifaleaks,” provided the Daily Caller with the documents that tied BAMN to the pedophilia group.
The documents include group bulletins from the 1990s, which contain disturbing, “erotic stories of naked young boys.”
Shanta Driver, described by the Capital Research Center as BAMN’s founder and co-chair, was affiliated with RWL as early as 1983, according to the Workers Vanguard, a communist publication. She also identified herself to the Los Angeles Times as an activist with RWL in late 1995 while protesting in Berkeley.
Driver argued before the Supreme Court on behalf of BAMN as recently as 2013.
Driver’s former law partner, Eileen Scheff — who has represented BAMN on multiple occasions, including at the Supreme Court — has been a self-described “member of NAMBLA.”
The FBI put BAMN on a list of organizations potentially involved in terrorist activities in 2005. The ACLU defended the group at that time.
