In reality, the U.S. did not supply arms to or train bin Laden, but certainly misguided foreign policy “experts” had the U.S. training other mujahedin in Afghanistan in the late 1980s. Does this justify the murder of 3000 innocent civilians? In Hasan Piker’s mind, yes. His Leftist fanbase eats this stuff up with two spoons, ecstatic at finding another reason to hate and denigrate America.
Meanwhile, why is Hasan Piker such a jerk? This kind of behavior is very common among Leftists and their Muslim allies. Islamic supremacist spokesmen in the U.S., including many who claim to be “moderate” and are lauded by the intelligentsia as wise, broad-minded, tolerant people who are busy building bridges of understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims, are all too often immature, arrogant, foul-mouthed creeps whose idea of a discussion is to hurl insults. The hate fairly oozes from their pores. There are many, many examples of this; Reza Aslan and Omid Safi stand out.
In this, Hasan Piker and his coreligionists are also imitating Muhammad, the man they believe to be an “excellent example” of conduct, as the Qur’an calls him (33:21).
Consider these hadiths (thanks to Sam Shamoun):
Ubayy b. Ka’b told that he heard God’s messenger say, “If anyone proudly asserts his descent in the manner of the pre-Islamic people, tell him to bite his father’s penis, and do not use a euphemism.” It is transmitted in Sarah [sic] as-sunna. (Mishkat Al Masabih, English Translation With Explanatory Notes By Dr. James Robson [Sh. Muhammad Ashraf Publishers, Booksellers & Exporters, Lahore, Pakistan, Reprinted 1994], Volume II, Book XXIV — General Behaviour, Chapter XIII. Boasting and Party-Spirit, p. 1021)
“Then Urwah said: “Muhammad, tell me: if you extirpate your tribesmen, have you ever heard of any of the Arabs who destroyed his own race before you? And if the contrary comes to pass, by God I see both prominent people and rabble who are likely to flee and leave you.” Abu Bakr said, “Go suck the clitoris of al-Lat!” — al-Lat was the idol of Thaqif, which they used to worship — “Would we flee and leave him?” (The History of al-Tabari — The Victory of Islam, translated by Michael Fishbein [State University of New York Press (SUNY), Albany 1997], Volume VIII (8), p. 76)
And in the words of Abu Bakr As-Sideeq to ‘Urwah: “Suck Al-Lat’s clitoris!” — there is a permissibility of speaking plainly the name of the private parts if there is some benefit to be gained thereby, just as he [Muhammad] permitted a plain response to the one who made the claims of the Jahiliyyah (i.e. claims of tribal superiority), by saying: “Bite your father’s penis!” And for every situation there is a (fitting) saying. (Provisions for the Hereafter (Mukhtasar Zad Al-Ma’ad), by Imam Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah, summarized by Imam Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab At-Tamimi [Darussalam Publishers & Distributors, First Edition: September 2003], Chapter.

Today, Hasan Piker’s sixth-grade-playground behavior is what passes on the Left for serious discussion.
“The Young Turks’ Hasan Piker Says ‘America Deserved 9/11’, Mocks Dan Crenshaw’s War Injury: ‘Brave Soldier F***ed His Eye Hole,’” by Amanda Prestigiacomo, Daily Wire, August 21, 2019:
Reviewing a clip of U.S. Military veteran Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) talking to podcast host Joe Rogan, Hasan Piker of “The Young Turks” mocked Crenshaw’s lost eye, a wartime injury, in vile fashion and said America “deserved” 9/11.
“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***?” Piker said, during a Twitch livestream on Tuesday night.
He added, “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?”

Piker posted a series of tweets on Tuesday mocking Crenshaw for discussing Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson’s joking about the Republican’s injury, though Crenshaw swiftly accepted Davidson’s apology and appeared alongside the comedian on SNL.
“You may be surprised to hear that he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie,” Davidson tastelessly joked in 2018. “I’m sorry. I know he lost his eye in war or whatever.”…
Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL, lost his eye in an IED explosion during his third deployment in Afghanistan….
During the same stream, Piker said the United States “deserved” to have the Twin Towers targeted by suicide bombers on September 11, 2001, killing 3,000 innocents.
In tweets addressing the remark, Piker wrote: “Americas [sic] foreign policy decisions has lead [sic] to 911. this would’ve been a controversial thing to say in 2001. stop being a f***ing idiot.”
“We supplied arms to and trained bin laden. we destabilized the region long before 911. and now we’re stuck in perpetual war, which dan crenshaw was trying to justify in that clip. it’s exactly this kind of attitude that has sent thousands of young men and women overseas to die,” he said in a follow-up tweet.
