Commie Cortez Turns Down Ben Shapiro Debate With Insane Comment

For the past week, conservative pundit Ben Shapiro has been challenging the socialist gaffe machine Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to a debate. To help entice her, he’s offered up $10,000 of his own money for the opportunity. The money was to go to a charity of Cortez’s choosing.

“You’ve noted that you think Republicans are afraid to debate you or talk to you or discuss the issues with you. Not only am I eager to discuss the issues with you, I’m willing to offer $10,000 to your campaign today for you to come on our Sunday special,” Ben said on his show this week.

In a bizarre reply, Cortez turned down the offer, which she analogized to catcalling. I’m not sure what kind of catcaller offers women $10,000, or how Cortez can deny she has an immense amount of privilege if she can turn down $10,000 like that. “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.”

In comparing being challenged to a debate to “catcalling,” Cortez also leaves the questioned unanswered if she’d see things the same way if a conservative woman offered her $10,000 to debate. I suppose Cortez would brand them “women with bad intentions”? And would those women also be “entitled”? Normally when I feel entitled to something, I don’t offer $10,000 for it.

While Cortez’s supporters thought this was a coherent response to a debate request in which she was offered $10,000 for a few hours of her time, everyone else saw this as her cowering out of a debate. Given that nearly every interview Cortez’s notable gaffes originated from were on friendly, left-leaning show, it’s obvious how a debate in which she received actual pushback would go.

Comedian Gavin McInnes put in best: “Uh, he doesn’t want to sleep with you. He wants to hash out ideas in a public forum. His intentions include truth and money for charity. Is there anything on earth you actually understand?” To answer Gavin’s question; no. No there is not.

It’s ironic because there’s no shortage of media headlines trying to portray Cortez’s candidacy as “Republicans worst nightmare.” And yet when those same Republicans supposedly cowering in fear of Cortez challenge her to a debate, they’re harassing her? Give me a break.
