Texas’ Republican Representative Dan Crenshaw is a rising star among American conservatives. Crenshaw, a former soldier who lost an eye for his country, became famous last year when Pete Davidson of Saturday Night Live mocked the war veteran and his injury.
In the act of good faith, Crenshaw appeared on SNL to reconcile with Davidson and show the nation that we can all come together, despite our political differences. Earlier this week, Crenshaw was yet again mocked for his war-time injury.
On Tuesday, August 20th, Representative Crenshaw appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast to talk about his political positions. Hasan Piker, a commentator on the Young Turks, watched the interview over a live stream.
Once Crenshaw started laying out his foreign policy positions, Piker became visibly triggered and starting spewing out incredibly hateful comments.
“This guy has the understanding of the foreign policy of, like, a 12-year-old. What the f*** is wrong with this dude? Didn’t he go to war and like literally lose his eye because of some mujahideen — a brave f***ing soldier-f***eded his eye hole with their d***?”
“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?”
Piker’s comments are not simply the crazed ramblings of a triggered ignoramus. They actually highlight views held by many on the far-left when it comes to America, subjective morality, and hatred that can only be described as a sort of anti-patriotism.
Piker later tried to walk back his comments on a Young Turks broadcast, saying “I didn’t say Americans deserved 9/11 — I said America deserves 9/11… maybe you can chalk it up to English being my second language or whatever you want to chalk it up to.”
Dan Crenshaw seemed amused by the leftist tirade tweeting, “@hasanthehun 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.”
Crenshaw’s tweet gets to the heart of why Piker’s comments were so disturbing. Not only did Piker claim America deserved 9/11, but he also believes enemy insurgents who attack and kill US soldiers are brave and noble. The man responsible for crafting the bomb that destroyed Congressman Crenshaw’s eye was created not only to terrorize and kill US soldiers but the natives as well.
It seems incomprehensible that American citizens could be so heartless and prefer to root on terrorists in the middle east over their own countrymen, who are working hard to bring freedom to these struggling countries. Despite that, many on the far left take this position.
One has to look no farther than Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar. Like many on the fringes of the left, the two politicians actively support the Palestinian opposition to Israel. They do this despite knowing that the terrorist group Hamas was democratically elected with the stated goal of exterminating the Jewish people. These two congresswomen openly meet with known Hamas sympathizers and pro-Hamas groups such as BDS.
All of this goes to show that leftists (not mainstream liberals), such as Hasan Piker, show a willingness to support terror in the middle east openly. This is done for a couple of reasons, the first of which is that these terrorists tend to have brown skin. The tenents of intersectionality (and also cultural/neo-Marxism) indicate that any non-Christian’s with brown skin are inherently virtuous, especially when in opposition to the majority-white US military force.
What is truly telling of the far-left is the second reason: leftists and terrorists want the same thing. That is to see America destroyed. Terrorists from the middle east are opposed to the Judeo-Christian foundation on which this nation was formed. Leftists couldn’t agree more. Both groups are simultaneously opposed to the idea that each and every person was created in the image of God.
While American Christians continue to believe in the separation of church and state, both terrorists and leftists alike wish to implement their own theocracy. Islamic extremists are hoping to establish an Islamic state, and neo-Marxists hoping to implement pseudo-religious communism, much like what we saw in Russia. The Islamic extremists worship Allah while the far-left worships a utopian ideal only possible (they think) through total governmental control.
It’s important to note that many democrats and liberals do not support these views or positions. That being said, such notions are troublingly becoming more mainstream. The Squad, Congress’ new intersectional coalition of AOC, Tlaib, Omar, and others, are the rising stars of the democratic party, and they believe all of these things.
Hasan Piker isn’t some nobody on the internet. The Young Turks is a wildly popular leftists channel on Youtube, with nearly 4.5 million subscribers. Despite his disgusting comments, Youtube, Twitch, Twitter and other platforms refuse to de-platform him. If a conservative was in such controversy, there would, without doubt, be repercussions.
Suffice it to say that comments such as Hasan Piker’s are becoming less radical each day on the political left. They are a window into the pathology into the anti-American sentiment of leftists and give us something to be very afraid of. Hopefully, leftists such as Piker continue to voice their opinions honestly. That way, the American public will know what the far-left is truly all about.
