I wonder if they didn't have something on him and his "donation" was done under duress? Or, I wonder if someone at YouTube/Google suggested he donate if he wanted to keep his channel.

Devolved? They started that way. Their full name is the "Anti-Defamation League of the Order Of The B'Nai B'Rith," and Bill Cooper did an hours-long exposé of that organization decades ago. If memory serves, you can find the audio version on YouTube or in written form elsewhere.

Yes, devolved. 100 years ago, their original mission was to try and get justice for the average Jewish person who was a victim of bigotry. There were no anti-discrimination laws back then, so various ethnic groups had their own organizations to protest injustice (Sons of Italy, NAACP, etc.).

But society changed and rendered most of these groups obsolete. What to do? Disband? No, because if they did that, they'd stop the gravy train and would not have jobs.

So they kept finding new enemies in the form of people and groups who didn't share their beliefs. And the ADL was especially bad in this respect in the way it popularized the concept of "hate speech" and got hate crime laws on the books.

By 2010, they were publishing an annual list of ten "leading organizations responsible for maligning Israel in the US" according to Wikipedia. So they became not just political, but McCarthy-ist in their politics. "Agree with us or else!"
