The nephew of Cenk Uygur, founder of the progressive commentary program The Young Turks, said the U.S. deserved 9/11 and praised the “brave f*cking soldier” who injured Republican Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw.

Crenshaw appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast, published Tuesday, and discussed the representative’s views on U.S. foreign policy in the middle east. Young Turks employee Hasan Piker reacted angrily while watching an internet live stream of the episode. (RELATED: Cenk Uygur And Glenn Greenwald Go At It Like Angry Wolves)

“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?” Piker said while reacting to Crenshaw’s appearance with Rogan. “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?”


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.”

On Twitter, Piker double downed on his comments, and continued to mock the congressman saying, “Dan Crenshaw is crying on a comedian’s podcast about how not offended he was about a joke made against him almost an entire year ago. right wing victim hood is a brain disease.”

Crenshaw responded Wednesday to Piker, saying, “[He} seems to confuse “Improvised Explosive Device” with some weird terrorist fantasy. Lol sorry for triggering you Hasan. You’re no Pete Davidson, stop trying so hard.”
