Two Marines just testified to an attack by an Antifa mob who maced, kicked and punched the two on the streets of Philadelphia during a rally.
The two men who lead the assault are pictured below in their Philadelphia Police Department mug shots but they tried to hide from the media when they entered the courtroom. Not the brightest bulbs in the box.
Antifa members are notorious for wearing masks so they can’t be identified. Here they are!
The two Marines testified to the beating they got and felt they could die:
The marines, Alejandro Godinez and Luis Torres, both testified in uniform about the incident, while three marine officers, including their commanding officer, stood in the gallery.
The suspects, Thomas Massey and Tom Keenan, who have been linked to antifa on websites and social media, sat together with their individual lawyers and did not speak.
The Marines were visiting Philadelphia for an event and had no idea about a rally happening closeby. The suspect approached the men and started harrassing them. The men were attacked by a mob of Antifa and brutally beaten.
The ironic thing is that the Antifa group yelled “white supremacist” and “Nazi” at the men to which the Marine yelled back that he’s Mexican.
The group then started using racial slurs…The irony of this moment isn’t lost on us and only proves that these people are just as twisted as we thought.
On the stand, Godinez said that he was “bewildered” by being called a white supremacist and immediately cried out, “I’m Mexican!” After that, as the attack continued, both men said that members of the group, including Keenan, repeatedly used ethnic slurs, including “spic” and “wetback,” against the marines. (There was no testimony that Massey used any such language).
Godinez said the group of 10-12 started chanting “f*ck him up” while they were beating the two Marines:
“The best way I can describe it is the sound of people chanting in a soccer stadium,” Godinez told the court, also adding that Keenan was “laughing, smiling, and having a good time, while I could have died that day.”
THE LAWYER FOR THE ANTIFA ATTACKERS DOWNPLAYED THE ATTACK:
The lawyer for the men called the attack just a “tussle”. It clearly was not just a tussle according to the two men who called 911 after the group left them bloody and beaten on the street.
Keenan hiding his face as he walks with his lawyer…COWARD
Well, the judge threw the book at the Antifa thugs:
After Godinez and Torres testified and the defense lawyers made brief arguments, the judge ruled that both men would be held for trial on aggravated assault and conspiracy charges — both felonies — as well as several misdemeanors. The judge also added a felony charge of ethnic intimidation against Keenan. Their next court date is December 27th.
Hopefully, this sends a message to Antifa that you cannot just beat random people on the street.
