A leaked Discord chat belonging to the American Iron Front (AIF) Antifa revealed chats belonging to user johnyz715, a username tied to John Zack Ortiz, a Berekely, California ADL Regional Coordinator. The chats revealed that Ortiz would openly talk about his employment within the ADL and he gave fellow Antifa access to ADL-branded resources and even advanced copies of extremism reports. According to Ortiz himself, he became radicalized with anti-White hatred after being exposed to ADL extremism reports while at work, and joined the American Iron Front after being "shaken to the core." Despite the AIF being rife with anti-Israeli members and users who openly "hate" the ADL, Ortiz consorts and collaborates with them, despite opinions that contrast against the ADL's own IHRA working definition of Antisemitism.
