The nephew of Cenk Uygur, Hasan Piker who has become the biggest political streamer on Twitch. He has gotten big enough and has influence on the political sphere on Twitch. That is an achievement and his living on his laurels. As a so-called socialist, he has a mansion and living of wealth.
The so called socialist who didn’t want to pay editors or people who was using editing clips to be posted on Youtube. That sort of fella is a Bernie Bro and an ally of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC). If you don’t follow the program and acts a loyal supporter to Hasan at any given moment. He will either ban you or silence your criticism of him. Neither, does he take any accountability or questions about his own behaviour.
It is just like he likes being in the spotlight. Seen with T-Shirts saying “Tax the Rich” but he has no trouble living life of a real Hollywood house-wife. That’s maybe what the capitalistic Uncle Cenk of The Young Turks (TYT) has told him. This is why he can live like do and be the proper Champagne socialist.
Hasan has gotten a massive platform and become big online. However, it doesn’t come with a price. His every word is now up for grabs and his takes are now questioned. With the commentary videos made about him. It is perfectly clear… that Piker doesn’t educate himself on every subject or take the time to understand what his talking about. Especially, when he calls Europeans “Crypto-Neo-Nazi’s” and such. Because the EU and Western powers are supporting the Ukrainian war effort. Alas, the Azov battalion is a nationalist and a Nazi, but the Ministry of Defence and Kyiv leadership isn’t . President Zelensky is a Jewish and could easily and morally be against it, but in war-time he takes anybody who fights against the Russian invasion. Something that Hasan doesn’t understand or can grasp. Since he boils down any argument into a cheap trick and thinks he can get away with that. Maybe his supporters does, but the mere reality should skim over that.
He has over 700,000 subscribers on Twitch and close to 300,000 on Youtube. The views are in the millions and only the ones being close would know how many who watches him on any given stream. However, the numbers would be huge by any estimate. His gained that and keeping that popularity.
While doing so… it doesn’t happen without controversy and questions about him. The manner of which he has reported about the Russian invasion and pre-Russian invasion in Ukraine. The same can be said about how he talks to critics and bans people on stream. The way he uses derogatory terms and mask it as commentary. That can all be put into question.
The only difference between him and some E-Girls. Is that he speaks about politics now and then. His maybe not in a bath-tub or lingerie, but he sells easy shows with little to no commentary. Using other people’s content while not reacting to it. Just showing it like a cinema with his own face in the corner. While his using the copyright strikes against people clipping his content and adding commentary over it. Therefore, a real hypocrite. Just like was paying editors and being a socialist.
I am sure his using the socialist tag, just like Jackson Hinkle was a Marxist. It is just a tag-line and a positive vibe at what is “it” at the time. Because, Piker is only socialist in the sense of the word, but not in defence of things. That’s why his recent statements and acts speaks of otherwise.
What is clear is that Hasan will not enlighten anyone. He might think so… as the pseudo-intellectual he makes himself out to be, but his just an ignorant streamer with no hold of his allegations or his stances. At least not at any serious reporting.
Hasan should focus on Ben Shapiro and other internal U.S. coverage… He can speak nonsense about American conservative and act like a socialist. That people like his unhinged statement and attitude is understandable, but if you want sincere reporting or even commentary. Hasanabi or Hasan Piker isn’t the guy. I’m sure at time he can be entertaining and even witty. However, as a commentator myself. His not much of a character or has the articulated arguments to defend his political arguments. It is better to listen Farron Cousins or Jesse Dollamore for that matter. These two can at least come with words that matters, because he cannot.
Even, if he could look like a decent guy in the days of the Breakdown at TYT. Those days are long gone and his true character is all out. The ego and the supposed charisma is proven now. He just shows that he can be vile and lack of substance to a T. Instead of looking like the future of political commentary. Hasan has instead turned into the butt of a joke and looks more ignorant than he intends too.
That’s why the ones that took him seriously is long gone. The ones that thought he had potential has also left and only the naive is following him. As they don’t know better. Some of them could get as much wisdom by watching E-Girls or the bathtub meta. They could get more knowledge by watching brainless bimbos showing their tits and ass. Because, your not getting any from Hasan.
The only difference, the E-Girls doesn’t promote or act like fortune tellers, but Hasan does. Peace.
