Representative Dan Crenshaw from Texas is a U.S. military hero. The man is as patriotic as they come and for being a veteran who served his country on behalf of all Americans and for losing an eye in the process, he catches a lot of crap from the left.
Most recently, during a livestream on Twitch, Young Turks commentator Hasan Piker made the lewdest remarks about Rep. Crenshaw.
“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***? 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?”
Cenk's Nephew called the man who took @DanCrenshawTX's eye a "brave fucking soldier" This is what happens when you're gifted a job by your Uncle you know you didn't earn & it eats away at your mental state. pic.twitter.com/BohESrbvJ6

How disgusting and disrespectful is that?
Not only that, but Piker also said during the livestream that “America deserved 9/11. America’s foreign policy decisions has led to 9/11. This would’ve been a controversial thing to say in 2001. Stop being a f***ing idiot.”
Well, Crenshaw had a response to Piker.
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.

On Crenshaw’s campaign website it says, “Dan was hit by an IED blast during a mission in Helmand province, Afghanistan. He was evacuated and awoke from his medically induced coma learning that his right eye had been destroyed in the blast and his left eye was still present, but badly damaged. Dan was completely blind and the doctors did not believe he would ever see again. Tara stood by him every day and night, keeping faith and praying he would see again. After several difficult surgeries, he eventually regained sight in his left eye, a miracle according to the head surgeon.”
So this guy, Piker, has literally said that “mujahideen” or Islamic terrorists are brave soldiers and he said that the United States deserved 9/11.
I’m going to make a bold statement and go so far as to say that anyone who listens to the Young Turks regularly after recent comments made by Piker, is just as anti-American as he is.
