Ilhan Omar And AOC Joined Gamer Event Organizers By Vlogger Who Claimed “America DESERVED 9/11”

( Reps. Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t do much for their image as America-hating extremists On Tuesday when they joined an online gaming event hosted by a vlogger who said last year that the United States deserved to be hit by the 9/11 terror attacks.

Hasan Piker, a Young Turks commentator, made the disgusting comment in August 2019 when reacting to a video clip of Rep. Dan Crenshaw talking to hugely popular podcast host Joe Rogan.

During a live stream hosted on Twitch, a popular gaming video platform, Piker mocked military veteran Crenshaw for having one eye.

“This guy has the understanding of foreign policy of, like, a 12-year-old. 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?” he said.

“Isn’t that how he f*cking lost his dumb*ss eye, because he got f*cking eye hole f*cked by a brave soldier?” he continued.

Later in that same live stream, Piker went even further, saying, “America deserved 9/11 dude. F*ck it, I’m saying it.”

Neither Rep. Ilhan Omar nor Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez addressed this fact, and instead very publicly took part in the gaming event with Piker. It drew a huge amount of adoring press for the two congresswomen connecting with hundreds of thousands of young, live viewers, and over 5 million viewers total.

Following his disgusting remarks about 9/11, Piker doubled down and claimed the United States was to blame for 9/11.

AOC introduced Piker and others at the beginning of the event this week, describing it as an “amazing lineup” of people.

For the record, too – Dan Crenshaw actually lost his eye during his third deployment. He was injured when he was hit by an IED explosion during in Helmand province, Afghanistan.
