How far left has the Democratic Party shifted? Here's one answer: A violent antifa leader, recently charged with assaulting two Marines on the street in Philadelphia, had been working with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and Democratic members of Congress to implement regulations on consumers and small businesses.

On Nov. 17, two U.S. Marines were attacked in Philadelphia by a group of antifa activists. One of those recently charged in the attack with aggravated assault, ethnic intimidation, and terroristic threats was Joseph Alcoff. Alcoff also ran Smash Racism D.C., the organization that laid siege to the home of Tucker Carlson and chased Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife out of a restaurant where they were dining.

On social media, Alcoff, using an alias, has called for the overthrow of capitalism and the institution of communism in the United States.

Meanwhile, as campaign manager at a liberal “consumer advocacy” group called Americans for Financial Reform, or AFR, Alcoff reportedly helped the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, or CFPB, draft financial regulations which have had a harmful effect on consumers and small businesses. In fact, he sat in on three meetings with former CFPB Director Richard Cordray to discuss rule-making.
