Answer: anti-Semite

According to the New Republic: "Marr was an atheist, and the Antisemiten-Liga (League of Anti-Semites) was hostile to Jews on the secular grounds that they are an alien "race." However, his account of Semitism was not essentially different from the demonic conception of the Jew that had existed in Christian Europe for centuries.
