Extreme leftist Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) were criticised for taking part in an event this week that was organised by a leftist blogger who just last year proclaimed that “America deserved 9/11.”
The Washington Free Beacon notes that AOC and Omar were involved in the live streaming event hosted by Hasan Piker that claimed to be aimed at encouraging viewers to make plans to get out and vote early.
While playing videos games, Ocasio-Cortez described the event as having an “amazing lineup” and thanked Piker, for having “wrangled” the event together without much time.
Piker appeared on a Young Turks broadcast in 2019 where he sickeningly attacked Texas GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw, making fun of that fact that he lost an eye while on active duty in Iraq.
“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—,” Piker said at the time.
During the same broadcast Piker declared that “America deserved 9/11, dude. F— it, I’m saying it,” after which he tried to weasel out of the statement, saying he meant America, not the American people, deserved 9/11.
This piece of scum Hasan Piker also said that “America deserved 9/11.”
Watch him say 3K Americans deserved to die: “America deserved 9/11, dude. Fuck it I’m saying it.”

The fact that Democratic representatives are involving themselves with a person like this says everything voters need to know.
Ilhan Omar has previously courted controversy where 9/11 is concerned, by describing the attack as “some people” who “did something” at an event for American and Islamic relations in 2019.
Ocasio-Cortez later defended Omar’s comments.
President Trump has warned multiple times that this extremist arm of the Democratic party will easily be able to co-opt Joe Biden if he manages to win the election, and forward a radical leftist agenda.
