Another one of those "When they go low; we go high" moments...

Young Turks host Hasan Piker mocks Dan Crenshaw's war injury, says 'America deserved 9/11'

Quote:
The Young Turks Network host Hasan Piker on Thursday doubled down on controversial comments he made declaring America “deserved” the September 11, 2001, terror attacks.

A shortened clip of the comments made by Mr. Piker, host of “The Breakdown,” during his Twitch livestream this week sparked outrage on social media. The 14-second clip, shared by several prominent conservatives, showed Mr. Piker reacting to a video of Republican Rep. Dan Cranshaw talking to podcaster Joe Rogan about America’s military efforts in the Middle East.

“America deserved 9/11, dude, f– it. I’m saying it,” Mr. Piker said in the clip.

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.”

Mr. 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 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 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]?”
And then they wonder why some think they hate America...

You can argue that American foreign policy isn't perfect, and in fact has led to issues down the road. Blowback is real thing and to acknowledge it doesn't mean you hate America, that part will always be absurd to me. And we do still support Saudi Arabia, which has been a major exporter of radical Islamic ideology and terrorism for a long time. I would even argue they have been worse than Iran or almost any other country we consider an adversary in that particular regard. That nation is IMO what the end result of what a real State run by ISIL would look like.

~~~~~BUT~~~~~

America didn't deserve 9/11. Almost 3000 Americans didn't "deserve" to die on that day no matter how you feel about the greater scope of our country's foreign policies. That is disgusting.

It should also go without saying, but if you're mocking a veteran's war wounds, you're a massive d-ck. There's no qualifier or explanation on the planet that'll save face. Making fun of someone's disability is f-cked up on its own, but when it was the result of service to our country, being wounded in battle, that just feels that much worse. I'm obviously not going to agree with Rep. Crenshaw on much, regardless of the political stuff he's a decent guy and deserves our respect. I remember that little debacle from SNL a few months back when he was made fun of for the eyepatch, much more lighthearted than Piker's little rant, but the dude was a class act throughout it all. Even went on for a segment and cracked jokes at the guy who made the pirate(?) comment the week prior.

So yeah, f-ck Hasan Piker.

TYT has a deserved reputation for boorish commentary. Founder Cenk Uygur was ejected from the radical Justice group he helped found for misogynist and racist blog posts he wrote. No less than AOC'S former campaign manager and long time confidant Chakrabarti swung the axe. Here is an example of the dignified rhetoric.



Quote:
2016, Uygur led a three-man panel on “how to pick up chicks,” in which Uygur described his conquest of a 19-year-old beauty pageant winner when he was 28, and his colleague Hasan Piker bragged about being a “total misogynist.” In another video, “Bro Tips,” Piker coached young men on how to get women in bars to have sex with them. After some initial repartee with your target, advised Piker, “It’s time to separate her from her herd, meaning her crowd of girlfriends that are going to do their best to c**kblock you because they’re fat and lonely.” In a segment devoted to “checking out women,” Uygur cackled as Wesley Clark, Jr. boasted, “I’m not wealthy at all, and I never had a problem scoring p***y in my life.” Further tarnishing TYT’s progressive image is an unsettled 2017 racial discrimination complaint against the network and a 2017 sexual assault allegation against one of the network’s reporters.

The most egregious anti-female performance at TYT, however, was Anna Kasparian’s on-air rant against conservative women after the 2016 presidential election. “I have no respect for women who voted for Trump,” she stated flatly. “I don’t think you’re a single-issue voter,” she continued, “I just think you’re dumb . . . I think you’re f**king dumb . . . you’re an idiot.” Concluding, Kasparian told 41 percent of women voters, upwards of 30 million of her fellow American women, that they had voted “against your best interests.”

It's nothing but more spam from a corrupt network of jerks.
