Antifa Leader Connected To Attack on Marines Charged with 'Ethnic Intimidation'
Joseph 'Jose' Alcoff was arrested by police and charged with multiple felonies
Antifa leader Joseph “Jose” Alcoff, who is known as “Chepe,” was arrested by police and charged with multiple felonies relating to the Soros-funded group's attack against two marines last November.
Alcoff is charged with offenses including conspiracy and terroristic threats, multiple counts aggravated assault, ethnic intimidation, and one count of robbery while inflicting serious bodily injury.
According to the affidavit filed in the case, Alcoff had connections to violent Antifa groups was an essential determinant leading to his arrest.
The two Marines, Alejandro Godinez, and Luis Torres, testified in December that the Antifa group consisting off 10 to 12 members, called them “Nazis” and “white supremacists” before attacking them on the street.
The Marines had no association with the right-wing group demonstrating nearby.
Godinez said he shouted “I’m Mexican” at the group as the group called him “spic” and “wetback.”
Thomas Keenan and Thomas Massey were arrested in November for the attack.
Keenan, who many regards as the “leader” of the Antifa contingent, was arrested and charged with rioting alongside Alcoff in New Jersey in 2011.
According to the DailyCaller: Torres notified detectives in Philadelphia that Alcoff was a member of the group that attacked him after reading TheDCNF’s reporting detailing Alcoff’s connection to Keenan, Philadelphia Magazine reported, citing an affidavit filed in Alcoff’s case.
Torres provided police pictures of the suspects at the time of the attack, leading investigators to “strongly agree” that Alcoff was the person in his photos, the affidavit states.
Alcoff is an organizer of Smash Racism DC, the Antifa group responsible for mobbing Fox News host and DCNF co-founder Tucker Carlson’s house in November.
He also chased Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz from a D.C. restaurant in September.
Alcoff made significant efforts to separate his true identity from his fanatical personas, “Chepe” and “Jose Martin,” TheDCNF reported in December.
When speaking as Chepe and through his Twitter handle @sabokitty, Alcoff has called for the killing of the rich and encourages using violence to bring “a world without capitalism, without private property … that is socialist and communist.”
Alcoff pled not guilty to the charges and is currently out on $15,000 bail. His lawyer did not immediately return a comment.
