ADL: Loughner not motivated by Giffords’ Judaism

Maybe Proton Soup was right. The ADL has come out to say that the online scribblings of Jared Lee Loughner indicate that Gabrielle Giffords’ Judaism wasn’t a motivating factor for the Tucson madman. Via JTA:

“In the end, the writings so far revealed seem to indicate no particular leanings about race, and it is difficult to come away from the postings with such a conclusion,” according to the analysis published Tuesday by the Anti-Defamation League. The ADL analysis also said that the writings do not “point to a particular ideology or belief system.”

Loughner’s “semi-coherent” writings “are indicative of an individual who has been exposed to a number of different ideas, from across the political spectrum, and has sometimes appropriated external concepts—often seemingly divorced from their original context,” the analysis said.
