It gets more and more difficult to move the needle into “make our blood boil” range, since a steady barrage of stupidity and heartlessness coming from the far-left tends to tighten up the gears a bit over time.

But Hasan Piker, reportedly the nephew of uber-lib pundit and fellow co-host of The Young Turks Cenk Uygur, buried it in the red zone on Tuesday when he lit up Rep. Dan Crenshaw and the United States with the most crass and offensive liberal insults in recent memory.

The Twitch streamer and host on The Young Turks Network streamed out a vile attack on Crenshaw before also commenting that the United States “deserved 9/11.”

Piker was reviewing Crenshaw’s recent appearance on the “Joe Rogan Experience” in which the congressman and decorated military veteran defended America having military bases around the world in more than 100 countries.

“This is so insane. America deserved 9/11, dude. F-ck it, I’m saying it,” Piker said.

“Like we totally brought it upon ourselves dude, holy sh-t. We did, we f-cking did … Look at the way that this dipsh-t is running his f-cking mouth, justifying genocide right now,” said Piker, intimating American blame for civilian casualties in the Middle East.

In a vile personal attack on Rep. Crenshaw, Piker praised the American foe who was responsible for the former Navy SEAL losing his eye in Afghanistan, during his third deployment.

“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 literally lose his eye because some mujahadeen, a brave f-cking soldier, f-cked his eye hole with their d-ck? Isn’t that how he lost his f-cking dumb-ss eye?” the controversial host – who was raised in Turkey – spat.

In a followup tweet, Piker posted: “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. … crying from his remaining eye *”

To his credit, Crenshaw calmly replied with a tweet of his own saying, “@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 was pointing out that there was no “brave soldier” who took out his eye, and the Pete Davidson reference was about the Saturday Night Live comedian’s November 2018 targeting of Crenshaw.

Stunningly, Piker has not been banned or removed from Twitter for his offensive posts.

Most conservatives would not have heard of the guy, but are likely familiar with his reported uncle, fellow ‘Young Turks’ host and liberal media darling Cenk Uygur.

Piker has amassed a large following, especially among young leftists.
