They’re coming for you next: An Antifa thug presently facing assault charges for an attack on two Marines appears to have been a favorite of Democratic politicians, until his indictment.

I could have also subtitled this post, “The brownshirts of the Democratic Party.” This story illustrates the close ties the modern Democratic Party has with the violent Antifa movement.

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.

He was also pictured with now-House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and ranking Democrat on the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio. Both committees oversee financial regulatory policies Alcoff was advocating.

Alcoff met with then CFPB Director Richard Cordray and other senior CFPB officials on April 2016, again in March 2017 and a third time in May 2017, as first reported by the Washington Free Beacon.

In essence, violent Antifa groups are the violent wing of the Democratic Party, used by it to physically attack conservatives and any innocent Americans who happen to be at their conservative events.

    Alcoff will be disposed of by the DNC in some fashion. They will have to be creative to distract from his association with those members of Congress with a “D” after their name and title. Their friends in journalism will help. Whether such efforts are successful will depend, in this case and others, on the tenacity of the non-progressive internet media.

    We do know this, …if the Alcoffs of America are allowed to surface in some other venue in time for the 2024 election, much less 2020, then the continuation of the industrialization of the US, and all the freedoms of action needed for that, will be in jeopardy.

    This shouldn’t be a surprise but it is to many Democrats. The media shields Democrats from the insanity and violent tendencies of their base. Anyone who has followed the Democrat activist movement for the last 20 years would see these types of groups at every single protest. They don’t always engage in violence, but you will see them there.

    I had a short conversation with a Democrat the other day. He said he never met a marxist and that there weren’t any in the Democrat party. This is after Democrats had to rig their primary so an out and proud marxist didn’t win their primary. This person claimed to be a party man who worked on campaigns and such.

    How is it the Democrats can be unaware of what is going on in their party?
