Ludicrous comic about palestinian rock thrower and Jewish baseball scout

This sounds very insulting to the cortex: the leftist British-run Bleeding Cool tells of this new comic from Paradigm Studios called "The Rockthrower", and what's it about?
THE ROCKTHROWER is a dramatic comedy on the trials and tribulations of David Willis, a down and out baseball scout on his last leg. When Willis sees footage of a Palestinian/Israeli conflict, he is transfixed on a new potential pitching discovery — a Palestinian teen throwing rocks with a speed and accuracy that defies even the best pitchers on Major League Baseball teams. On a wild hunch, a wing and a prayer, Dave travels into unforeseen territory to make this kid a star. But will his own heritage of being Jewish and his dark past as a disgraced baseball player put this endeavor towards a path of failure before its even had a chance to succeed?
If the boy was throwing rocks at Israelis - it makes no difference whether it was military or civilian - then he was basically acting as jihadist and with mindsets like that he would not be deserving of a career as a baseball player. The way they speak of the baseball scout himself sounds like it simultaneously makes him out to look dreadful, which only adds insult to injury. And what makes a "palestinian" a better character to recruit to baseball than one who's written as coming from a Coptic or an Armenian background? Again, people of those backgrounds get no offer of recognition. A shame Will Eisner is no longer around, because maybe he could've tried out a project like that.

This new monstrosity bears all the signs of a moral equation and the subject is no laughing matter, making it all the more tasteless.

Agreed. It´s an insult to the cortex.

But in case you haven´t seen it, check out "Idiocracy.! It´s supposed to take place 400 years from now. But trust me, there is no need to wait much longer. We are almost there.
