‘Squad’ Members Team Up With Controversial Left-Wing Commentator Who said America ‘Deserved’ 9/11

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Ilhan Omar teamed up with Young Turks contributor Hasan Piker to play a game of “Among Us”, according to Fox News.

Last year, Piker said that America “deserved 9/11.”

“America deserved 9/11, dude. F— it, I’m saying it,” Piker said in the stream.

“It’s messed up that I would even give the opportunity to the right to try to morally grandstand on an issue like this when they are 100 percent responsible for all the bloodshed that has been caused,” Piker said.

He later added, “Obviously, 9/11 was a horrific tragedy. 3,000 Americans died, OK? Seven thousand troops have died since then in endless wars.”

“And if you’re spending all of your energy getting upset at me because I think that is abhorrent and awful, maybe you should spend your energy elsewhere and realize that those who justify the endless bloodshed don’t actually have the best interest of those young men and women at heart.”

From Fox News:

Piker, a Twitch vlogger, who used to contribute to the left-leaning news and commentary outlet the Young Turks, blasted Crenshaw during a Twitch stream last year for his opposition in the House to halting arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

Twitch suspended Piker for his comments last year. Piker said that he “obviously” did not mean it that America deserved 9/11, and that his comments were taken out of context.

Omar sparked her own 9/11-related controversy in 2019, when she referred to the deadly attacks as “some people did something.”

Twitch, the free Amazon-owned service, where users mostly live stream themselves playing video games and other users watch, logged more than 9 billion hours watched in 2019.

Among Us is one of the most popular games on the live streaming gaming platform with more viewers watching it than any other game. It is a multiplayer game where users are dropped onto an alien spaceship and each player is designated either “crewmate” or “impostor.” Impostors attempt to sabotage a team of crewmates who are working to figure out who the impostors are.

  1. There are certainly plenty of details like that to take into consideration. That could be a nice level to deliver up. I offer the ideas above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions just like the one you deliver up where crucial factor might be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if greatest practices have emerged around things like that, but I am positive that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the affect of only a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
