After Democrat socialist darling refused to debate conservative powerhouse, Ben Shapiro because she said it was “sexist” that he even asked, such a thing, a number of powerful conservative women have stepped up and said the would more than happy to debate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
So, will the clueless gaffe-machine accept the invitation?
Is she’s smart, she won’t.
From Town Hall
New York Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) has made headlines for being the new face of Democratic socialism in America. She has done a number of interviews with media outlets on the Left but has repeated declined interviews with right-leaning organizations.
The Daily Wire‘s editor-in-chief, Ben Shapiro, challenge Oscasio-Cortez to debate him. In return, he said he would donate $10,000 to her political campaign or a charity of her choice.
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

Shapiro responded to Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet:
Discussion and debate are not “bad intentions.” Slandering someone as a sexist catcaller without reason or evidence does demonstrate cowardice and bad intent, however. https://t.co/kYaYuf0W43

During an interview with Fox News, Shapiro talked about the situation, saying Ocasio-Cortez was doing everything in her power to play the victim card.
“And the fact that she feels the necessity to go to this particular card, right, to play the ‘I’m a female and therefore I’m being victimized, this is like catcalling’ … the fact [that] she goes there instead of just saying ‘You know, I’m not interested in debate.’ The reason she didn’t say the latter is because she didn’t want to look like she was afraid,” Shapiro told Fox News.
“I mean, if she were to get into a discussion with somebody who asks her tough questions, I don’t think she has the information or the philosophy at her disposal to actually answer those questions well,” Shapiro said. “And she knows that, which is why her best move here would have been either to just ignore or to say no. And then everybody would’ve moved on with their life.”
Well-known conservative women stepped in and said they would be more than willing to debate Ocasio-Cortez, so the playing field is “even” as far as sex goes.

If a man asking @Ocasio2018 to debate is catcalling, what was it when I asked? (And other women that I’m sure have also asked.) I would LOVE to discuss her claim that Jesus was a socialist. Or is that mean?

And what exactly was your excuse for having turned down the debate with me?
Can’t wrap that one up in fake-feminism.

To make matters even more interesting, Turning Point USA’s founder, Charlie Kirk, said donors would donate $100,000 to a charity if Ocasio-Cortez debated the group’s Communications Director, Candace Owens.
