An Antifa organizer has been arrested and charged on multiple felony counts in connection with a racially charged attack against two hispanic US Marines during a trip to Philadelphia.
Joseph “Jose” Alcoff, a.k.a. “Chepe” and “Jose Martin,” faces 17 charges, including multiple counts of aggravated assault, conspiracy, terroristic threats, ethnic intimidation and one count of robbery while inflicting serious bodily injury.

Alcoff’s arrest comes two months after the arrests of Thomas Massey and Tom Keenan – who is considered a “leader” of the Philadelphia Antifa cell, and was charged in 2011 with Alcoff in connection with a New Jersey riot.
The Marines, Alejandro Godinez and Luis Torres, testified in December that a group of 10 to 12 Antifa members called them “Nazis” and “white supremacists” and attacked them on the street despite their denials that they had no association with the right-wing group demonstrating nearby.
During the attack, Godinez said he shouted “I’m Mexican” at the mob, which allegedly led the attackers to call him a “spic” and “wetback.” –Daily Caller
Torres gave his account of the incident to Fox News in December.
Based on an affidavit filed in the case, the investigation into Alcoff was aided in large part due to reporting by the Daily Caller – which has covered Antifa, and “Smash Racism DC” in particular.
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 and for chasing 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. – Daily Callerhttps://archive.fo/lvtP5https://newspunch.com/antifa-organizer-arrested-racist-attack-latino-marines/
