Ben Shapiro Challenges Ocasio-Cortez to a Debate, She Attacks Him Instead. Then Twitted Exploded.
Twitter went completely and totally bananas on Thursday after democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lost her mind on conservative powerhouse Ben Shapiro online. Her slanderous tirade against the pundit was in response to his challenging her to a debate.
Shapiro offered to donate $10,000 to Ocasio-Cortez’s political campaign if she agreed to a debate or discussion on his “Sunday Special, or to use the money for charity.
Not surprisingly, Ocasio-Cortez refused to respond to the offer, opting instead to throw around insults.
Ocasio-Cortez refused to respond, but, moments after The Daily Wire published a report documenting her silence, she responded by slandering Shapiro:
Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions.
And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one. pic.twitter.com/rsD17Oq9qe

Ocasio-Cortez’s response ignited Twitter and brought a significant amount of attention to the fact that she had ignored a debate request — something that her followers were probably not aware of unless they followed outlets like The Daily Wire or Fox News, which both covered the debate offer.
Here are some of the best and most thought-provoking responses to Ocasio-Cortez’s smear:
Trivializing sexual harassment to own the cons? This is what a #Fauxminist looks like. https://t.co/w5D2FVL0vc

Huh? I've heard a lot of things about @benshapiro. But I am pretty sure he's never been accused of "catcalling" in his entire life.
Come on @Ocasio2018. You can give a better answer than a cheap shot Ben is being sexist for requesting a debate. https://t.co/9kH7PDaq7V

It’s not about “owing” a response. It’s about stepping up to the plate and defending your platform against someone who doesn’t agree with you. If by “bad intentions,” you mean @benshapiro wants to have a civil debate, then sure. How evil. https://t.co/ulb5L7HAYm

At the end of the day, Ocasio-Cortez’s response looks like a desperate attempt to avoid taking on one of the sharpest political thinkers of our time, which means that she doesn’t feel her ideas and beliefs can stand up to scrutiny.
Which, of course, they can’t. This is a fact she and other so-called “democratic socialists” already know, but seem to struggle with admitting.
Here’s to hoping we actually get to see these two go head to head in a true spirited discussion and debate.
