Antifa Leader Relied on Anonymity to Push Radical, Violent Communist Agenda
Joseph "Jose" Alcoff works with congressional Democrats as part of his day job as a manager with a DC-based advocacy group. But he spreads socialist and communist propaganda when going by the name "Jose Martin." Identifying as "Chepe," Alcoff advocates for the violent overthrow of the government and for the murder of the rich. He has relished the mainstreaming of Antifa's militant tactics in the Trump era. A 2017 book identified Chepe as an organizer behind Smash Racism DC, the Antifa group that mobbed Fox News host Tucker Carlson's home in November and ran Ted Cruz out of a restaurant in September.
