‘Progressive’ Commentator Declares ‘America Deserved 9/11’
Young Turks contributor Hasan Piker makes horrific comments during vile rant
A "progressive" commentator and The Young Turks contributor declared that "America deserved 9/11" during a vile rant while attacking Republican Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw.
Rep. Crenshaw appeared on an episode of Joe Rogan’s popular podcast, published Tuesday, and discussed his views on U.S. foreign policy in the middle east.
The Young Turks employee Hasan Piker, who is the nephew of Cenk Uygur - founder of the progressive commentary program -, reacted angrily while watching an internet live stream of the episode and praised the “brave f*cking soldier” who injured Crenshaw, who lost an eye while serving his country.
“This guy has the understanding of foreign policy of, like, a 12-year-old,” Piker said while watching Crenshaw’s appearance with Rogan.
"What the f-ck. What the f-ck is wrong with this dude?"
"Didn’t he go to war and like literally lose his eye because some mujahideen — a brave f-cking soldier — f-cked his eye hole with their d-ck?”
Piker added, “Isn’t that how he f-cking lost his dumbass eye, because he got his f-cking eye hole f-cked, by a brave soldier?”

Accoridng to the Daily Caller, Crenshaw, a former Navy Seal, served three tours in Iraq and lost his right eye from an IED explosion.
The progressive host didn’t stop there, Piker continued saying, “America deserved 9/11, dude. Fuck it I’m saying it.”

Accoridng to the Washington Times, the remark spurred an uproar on Twitter, and Mr. Piker responded by tweeting a longer clip of his rant, apparently to provide more context, in which he argued that America funded the perpetrators who carried out 9/11.
“Like, we f–ing totally brought it on ourselves, dude, holy s–,” he said in the video.
“Look at the way that this dips—t is running his f–ing mouth, justifying genocide right now.
"How is anything I’m saying controversial? We f–ing fund the people who did 9/11 still to this day.”
Piker also defended himself on Twitter, writing, “americas foreign policy decisions has lead to 911. this would’ve been a controversial thing to say in 2001. stop being a f**king idiot.”
A second tweet added, “we supplied arms to and trained bin laden. we destabilized the region long before 911. and now we’re stuck in perpetual war, which dan crenshaw was trying to justify in that clip. it’s exactly this kind of attitude that has sent thousands of young men and women overseas to die.”

A second video circulating on social media showed Mr. Piker mocking Mr. Crenshaw’s war injury.
The congressman, a former Navy Seal, served five tours of duty and lost his right eye from an IED explosion in Afghanistan.
“This guy has the understanding of foreign policy of, like, a 12-year-old,” Mr. Piker said in the video.
“Didn’t he go to war and, like, literally lose his eye because some mujahideen — a brave f–ing soldier — f–ed his eye hole with their [expletive]?”
Mr. Piker also attacked Mr. Crenshaw on Twitter, saying “right wing victim hood is a brain disease.”
