Long before WWI, before Leo Frank and the founding of the ADL and long before before WWII, Jewish organizations solicited donations to fight "Hatred of the Jews." In order to raise money to fight an enemy an enemy was needed and in the 1890s Wilhelm Marr was promoted in the media as the enemy of the Jewish people in America. Marr is credited with the creation of the terms "Anti-Semitism" and "Holocaust."
It was this a great source of embarrassment to the fundraisers when word leaked out that Wilhelm Marr was himself Jewish, but in an age before alternative media had made the public aware of the preponderance of hoaxes used to sell the concept of Jewish victimhood, the fundraisers covered their obvious sham by declaring Marr to be a Jewish "renegade".
Wilhem Marr was not the only fake "American Nazi" to surface through the years.
Back in the 1970s, Frank Collin paraded around the media wearing swastikas and screaming race hate against Jews. When his Jewish identity as Frank Cohen was revealed, the old standby of "Renegade" was applied to him as well.
More recently, Bill White the self appointed leader of the American National Socialist Workers Party, an ADL/SPLC front has come under suspicion of being yet another phony based on his funding sources and other reasons too numerous to elucidate here.
Then we have Adam Yahiye Gadahn, the so-called "American Al Qaeda" who parades around the media scaring Americans into supporting war on Israel's enemies. His real name is Adam Pearlman and he is the grandson of a member of the board of the ADL.
