Ismail X?

Environmentally conscious people sometimes ask the question: “If a tree falls in the forest, does anybody hear?” But in the far-Right blogosphere, this has been rephrased to

If a tree falls in the forest, let’s go searching for the Moslem Arab rag-head cut it down!!

Bloggers like Debbie Schlussel, Little Green Footballs and The Jawa Report are already speculating. Meanwhile, one of Cardinal Pell’s favourite bloggers is already casting similar aspersions.

FoxNews is also speculating about an inscription on the shooter’s arm which read “ISMAIL AX”. To be fair, they are also speculating on other matters as well.

I guess that’s how it is in the 21st century. Some people will use any excuse to push some kind of sectarian barrel.
