Democrat Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar have allied themselves with Hasan Piker, a notorious liberal commentator, who’s said that America deserved 9/11 and vulgarly mocked Rep. Dan Crenshaw for losing an eye on his third combat tour in Afghanistan.

Ocasio-Cortez joined a group of gamers to play “Among Us,” a popular new video game, and live streamed the event on Twitch to encourage viewers to make plans to go vote. At the beginning of the stream, Ocasio-Cortez announced an “amazing lineup” of gamers, including Piker, who “wrangled” the event together at the last minute.
Last year, Piker, a Twitch vlogger and former contributor to the left-leaning news and commentary group the Young Turks, attacked Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R., Texas)—a veteran who lost his right eye in 2012 while serving in Iraq—in a video and said “America deserved 9/11.”
“This guy has the understanding of foreign policy of, like, a 12-year-old,” Piker said. “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—.”
“America deserved 9/11, dude. F— it, I’m saying it,” Piker said in the video.
