Would you be surprised to know that one of the key leaders of antifa is a lunatic left winger who has no problem with violence and racism, as long as it’s the violence and racism he and his pals are okay with?
After all the times this has happened in the recent past, I would hope the answer is no. But just in case, please read the following excerpt fromAndrew Kerr’s article at dailycaller.com:
Antifa leader Joseph “Jose” Alcoff, also known as “Chepe,” has been out of a job working for a progressive nonprofit since December, his former employer told The Daily Caller News Foundation on Tuesday.
Alcoff was arrested in Philadelphia on Jan. 10 and charged with multiple felonies, including aggravated assault, ethnic intimidation and terroristic threats, in connection to the Antifa mob attack against two Marines in November. One of the Marines, Alejandro Godinez, testified in December that he shouted “I’m Mexican” at the mob, which allegedly led the attackers to call him a “spic” and “wetback.”
The DCNF’s reporting on Alcoff’s fanatical personas, “Chepe” and “Jose Martin,” and his connection to violent Antifa groups were integral factors leading to his arrest, according to an affidavit filed in his case.
The DCNF unmasked Alcoff on Dec. 18, but his former employer, Americans for Financial Reform (AFR), ignored numerous requests for comment in the ensuing six weeks inquiring whether it was aware of Alcoff’s extreme and violent rhetoric or if it planned on taking any action in regards to the radical’s statements.
Does anyone doubt for even one second that alcoff’s “progressive” employer was fully aware of his politics? That the only reason AFR is dumping him now is because, now that is has been made public they are embarrassed by him (which they should have been all along)?
It has been said numerous times in this blog, and is worth repeating again now: It is amazing how much hatred and intolerance is spewed by people who profess to be against both.
but, then again, watch the problem here? After all the hatred and intolerance was directed against “bad people”, isn’t it? So that makes it perfectly acceptable, right?
let me end by noting the sad truth, that there are people who would not see that last statement as a sarcasm, but would fully agree with it.
