The clashes on campuses between pro-Trump supporters and the liberal Antifa groups have been getting a lot of attention, lately.
One of the enduring questions, through it all, has to be who are these Antifa groups, other than just militant, anti-free speech, anti-conservative leftists?
The recent threat of rioting at Berkeley University by one of the Antifa groups called, The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary – or By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) – was made, in order to prevent Ann Coulter from making an appearance.
Shutting down free speech is nothing new for leftists.
Liberals love fascism, even when they’re accusing conservatives of being fascists.
Hypocrisy is a virtue to liberals, after all.
This particular group have even more loathsome ties, other than their obvious Marxist bent.
From the Daily Caller:
BAMN’s parent organization worked directly with the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) in the years just before it founded BAMN, according to NAMBLA documents reviewed by The Daily Caller. 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.”
So, for those who don’t know what NAMBLA is, it’s just as the name implies. It is a group of pedophiles, grown men who are sexually attracted to young boys.
How young is too young?
I saw an interview with the founder of NAMBLA years ago and he was asked that very question.
The obviously disgusted interviewer asked if a one-year old boy was too young for a sexual relationship.
The NAMBLA head answered that it would depend on if the parents were agreeable.
If you’re in the floor now, that was pretty much my reaction – and then I wondered how the man conducting the interview was able to keep from punching a hole in the guy’s face.
So why hasn’t NAMBLA been shut down?
Free speech. How’s that for irony?
They can talk about having sex with little boys all day, as long as it remains just talk. That’s ok with BAMN. Just don’t try to talk about conservatism.
Meanwhile, BAMN were founded by the Revolutionary Workers League, a Marxist organization based out of Detroit.
“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 group of researchers provided TheDC with copies of internal NAMBLA publications from the 1990’s. The internet sleuths requested anonymity, citing fear of retaliation by BAMN members, and asked instead to be collectively referred to as, “The shadowy and/or mysterious organization known as Antifaleaks.”
That’s disgusting enough. Where is the link to NAMBLA?
NAMBLA’s November-December 1991 bulletin, reviewed by TheDC, described at one of its conferences the “participation of Revolutionary Workers League, a Trotskyite group centered in the Detroit area. RWL is supportive of gay rights in general and NAMBLA in particular.” The journal contained details of the organization’s conferences and activities, as well as detailed, erotic stories about naked young boys.
There was also a 1992 bulletin referring to the RWL as a “NAMBLA ally.”
Further, lawyer Eileen Scheff has represented BAMN often, and has stood as a loyal defender of NAMBLA.
“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,” Scheff said at the conference. “The media and police are targeting NAMBLA because it stands for the rights of young people to have consensual sex with whomever they want.”
“Denying youth their sexuality or driving sexual expression deeper and deeper underground will not stop child molestation,” Scheff added. She called for “youth-controlled centers where they can freely socialize and enjoy safe, consensual sex.”
“I call on all progressive people in the lesbian/gay community, in the women’s movement, and in the community at large to defend NAMBLA and its right to advocate for consensual sex regardless of age, and to unite our forces to make a fight for the real solutions to sexual coercion and abuse,” Scheff said.
Lady, you are out of your mind.
These are the people that are staging the violence to shut down political speech that they don’t like.
These are not the “good guys,” by any stretch, but they think they are.
