If you’ve never heard of Hasan Piker, he’s the nephew of The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur who’s made a name for himself as a political Twitch streamer. If you hop on to his channel while he’s on, he’ll either be reacting to YouTube videos or delivering such stunning political commentary such as how America deserved 9/11 or that the man who took Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw’s eye was a “brave f***king soldier.”
Piker is, like most young first-world leftists, a socialist. As original a concept as this is, what’s even more common about him is that Piker’s popularity has made him wealthy with no small help from the innovation made possible by the capitalist system. This led to Piker doing exactly what young wealthy socialists do; he purchased a very expensive home.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Piker purchased a home in West Hollywood worth $2.74 million in the Beverly Grove neighborhood. Like other champaign socialists, this multi-million dollar home fits right in with his for-the-people, eat-the-rich preaching.
