A Dallas double-homicide (technically it was in Irving, but whatever) has gotten unusual attention in the national blogosphere. Unfair Park chronicles how the murders, involving a Muslim father allegedy killing his two teenage daughters, have prompted various right-wing blogs to immediately jump to unsubstantiated, baseless and more than slightly racist conclusions. Though it's unusual to see the right-wing blogosphere surveyed on Unfair Park (which covers local issues), it's not at all unusual for the right-wing blogosphere to seize on any supposed outrage committed by a Muslim to condemn an entire religion and make themselves look like morons ("Dallastan"...seriously?) and assholes in the process.
