Another wave of protesters descended on the University of California, Berkeley on Thursday despite conservative commentator Ann Coulter’s ultimate decision to cancel a scheduled campus speech. Anti-First Amendment thugs, many associated with the dangerous antifa communist organization By Any Means Necessary, successfully coerced the university into denying Coulter a platform.
“This [cancellation] proves that it [antifa violence] works,” said Lauren Southern during a live Web stream Thursday. Southern spearheaded an April 15 Berkeley rally that saw several arrests and injuries.
A GotNews investigation can reveal more about the precarious financial status of the United for Equality and Affirmative Action Legal Defense Fund (UEAALDF), the tax-exempt, allegedly nonpartisan front for the By Any Means Necessary communist terrorist group.
Coulter’s decision to back out of her speaking engagement came after Young America’s Foundation (YAF) pulled their support due to concerns about safety. This year, masked, black-clad protesters have regularly attacked citizens as they attempted to hear conservatives speak on the campus.
Right-leaning talk show host Gavin McInnes made it to Berkeley to give the speech Coulter had intended to. Coulter, explains McInnes, feels “betrayed” by YAF. He added, audibly frustrated, “We have an army of 200 guys. We’ve got retired vets. She could do a talk on top of antifa headquarters, she could do it in the mayor’s office and she would be perfectly safe.”
McInnes says he and his allies aren’t showing up at Berkeley seeking violence, but only to defend open discourse. The former Vice Media executive even expressed sympathy with the antifa, whom he says are “brainwashed Marxist homeless kids.”
YAF released a statement Wednesday claiming to have “discovered that the University of California Police Department at Berkeley has an official ‘stand-down’ policy for any situation that develops on campus as long as the situation doesn’t involve the imminent loss of life, allowing the leftist thugs who have terrorized Berkeley’s campus to do so without consequence.”
Asked to elaborate on any written evidence of a police “stand-down” order, YAF has not responded.
Coulter tells GotNews that the indicators of such an official policy are “only what I’ve seen online,” referring in part to taped statements by Berkeley police vocally indifferent to multiple beatings that occurred April 15.
UEAALDF’s website proclaims “We Need Your Support,” and directs readers to an unresponsive donation link at BAMN’s website, in the BAMN site subdirectory “/1/.” Since at least 2011, the BAMN website has been equipped with a Robots exclusion standard file called “robots.txt” that has disallowed Web archival services from cataloging earlier versions of the site for subdirectories including “/1/.”
Other disallowed directories include ones pertaining to a “brown march” in 2006, the labor movement, and immigrant rights. It’s possible these subfolders identified illegal immigrants and other criminals.
BAMN’s actually operable donation page has been the same since 2012, although as of now its payment processor, Authorize.Net, though linked, no longer actively facilitates direct credit donations. BAMN’s website still invites mailed contributions to a Detroit P.O. Box. Five years ago, just as BAMN attests now, the Michigan-based militia outlaid operating costs over a following three years of $850,000.
BAMN openly refers to UEAA as a front they themselves manage, writing, “BAMN has set up a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization as a tax-exempt affiliate.”
UEAALDF/BAMN promotional materials, hosted by UEAALDF’s website since 2009 and still maintained, invite donors to send credit card information to a P.O. Box in Detroit, one different than that advertised on BAMN itself. Donors are further invited to indicate on the form whether their monthly donations will go to either BAMN or UEAALDF. Although one banner in the materials encourages donors to “Become a Monthly Sponsor of BAMN and UEAALDF.”
The materials advise:
United for Equality and Affirmative Action Legal Defense Fund (UEAALDF) is a 501(c)(3) organization. As the tax-exempt affiliate of BAMN, UEAALDF coordinates the legal defense, education, and administrative aspects our work. Contributions made to UEAALDF are tax deductible. … Contributions made to BAMN are unrestricted and can be used for political and electoral purposes. Contributions made to BAMN are not tax deductible.
The tax-exempt front, UEAALDF, maintains a credit-card donation site using PayPal, which GotNews can confirm is operating and PayPal acknowledges under the UEAALDF moniker.
UEAALDF nonprofit filings, which entitle them to tax-exemption, are last available as of 2013 through Foundation Center, which maintains a database of philanthropic organizations. Inquiry with a similar service, GuideStar, shows latest UEAALDF filings most recently available also as of 2013, whereas nonprofits typically have theirs available through these sites as of 2015. If the terrorists’ “charity” front isn’t filing under an undisclosed name—presenting deduction complications for donors—it’s likely they are two years’ delinquent on filing taxes. Assuming their donation level stayed around $40,000 as in 2013—and, again, terrorist front UEAALDF seems to have been late to file—they may be subject to Internal Revenue Service fines around $10,000.

The legal air gap between openly partisan, candidate-focused BAMN activities and the allegedly “educational” and “legal” role of UEAALDF is vague. All available 990 filings for UEALLDF indicate no legal fees. For example, BAMN/UEAALDF chief Shanta Driver gives public speeches explicitly denigrating Donald Trump, while Trump has already given notice of his intent to seek re-election in 2020.
As another example, UEAALDF continues to brag about on its website “UEALLDF’s  videotaped deposition” of an anti-affirmative action activist, linking directly to a YouTube video called the “BAMN deposition.”
