Washington, D.C. 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.”
TheDCNF’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.

TheDCNF 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.
