Earlier this week, Dan Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL who lost his eye in an IED explosion in Afghanistan, appeared on the Joe Rogan podcast where he covered an array of topics, including the Iraq War. A host for “The Young Turks,” Hasan Piker, attacked the decorated war veteran in a Twitch livestream.

“This guy has the understanding of foreign policy of, like, a 12-year-old. What the f***. What the f*** is wrong with this dude? 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 d***?” Piker said of the Texas representative.
He continued his attack by stating: “Isn’t that how he f***ing lost his dumba** eye, because he got his f***ing eye hole f***ed, by a brave soldier?”

According to the Daily Wire, Piker then set his sights on Crenshaw for appearing on Saturday Night Live in 2018 to respond to a distasteful joke comedian Pete Davidson made where he said: “You may be surprised to hear that he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie. I’m sorry. I know he lost his eye in war or whatever.”
The joke was again brought up on the Rogan’s podcast, and Piker reiterated his claim that this was simply Crenshaw playing the victim.
“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 victimhood is a brain disease,” Piker wrote on Twitter. He added in a follow-up tweet: “crying from his remaining eye*.”
As if Piker didn’t already dig himself a big enough hole, he ended his stream by claiming America “deserved” to have 9/11 happen.
“Americas foreign policy decisions has lead to 911. this would’ve been a controversial thing to say in 2001. stop being a f***ing idiot,” he wrote on Twitter.
He 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.”
The 9/11 attack saw the death of 3,000 innocent people. It’s unclear why Piker was so angry and vitriolic towards Crenshaw unless he just hates Republican?
