What a difference a year made for Joseph Alcoff. On Monday, the 37-year-old has a court date in connection with charges hes facing in Philadelphia that include aggravated assault and ethnic intimidation for allegedly being part of an Antifa mob in November that attacked two Marines, Alejandro Godinez and Luis Torres, both Hispanic. Alcoff and two others charged in the attack have pleaded not guilty. ANTIFA FIGURE CHARGED IN MARINE ATTACK But while Democratic officials are distancing themselves from Alcoff now, until recently he was a well-connected, aspiring political player in Washington who may have even had a hand in key policy proposals. His endorsement apparently mattered when several congressional Democrats in February 2018 issued press releases with his quote backing their bill on regulating payday lenders. As the payday campaign manager for the liberal group Americans for Financial Reform, Alcoff participated in congressional Democratic press conferences, was a guest on a House Democratic podcast and met with senior officials at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau from 2016 through 2018.

Marines were both a minority... Hate crime
Use RICO statutes and get Soros for funding them as well as the Democrats.
Do you notice that most of these Antifa goons are upper middle class white people? These aren’t blacks doing this. Blacks aren’t doing this. Blacks aren’t involved with this. It’s always spoiled white guys doing this.
Apparently these spoiled, rich, white kids have affirmative action lawyers though.
Coard, an African American activist in Philadelphia, also told the magazine regarding the alleged slurs, The question that I have for the D.A.s office and the police is this: Does anybody think that I, Michael Coard, would represent a racist? I would never represent a racist. In fact, if I believed that he was a racist, I would prosecute him myself.
Sure you would bud! He is promoting your agenda, you don’t care what color the useless idiot is.
You, Michael Coard, don’t believe attacking Hispanics, especially Hispanics in the USMC, to be racist. For you and your client, it’s a revolutionary act or some chit like that.
The rules only apply to others. Every time there was a black on Hispanic crime in Tifton Georgia, the blacks screamed it wasn’t a hate crime. Funny how it was always a hate crime if a Hispanic attacked a black though.
This is my shocked face
Yes. Just like the Occupy Wall Street tards, the pussy hat marchers, and the pro-environment activists.
99 and 44/100ths pure White.
Normal people of every color and race don't have time for this crap.
Too busy working real jobs.
When I was a kid, about a million years ago, attacking a Marine was tantamount to committing suicide.
Maybe they’re ‘kinder and gentler’ now.
