That's the very reason that Ocasio-Cortez chickened out of the debate, as she won't have anything to back up whatever lame claim she has. She also said some mean-spirited things on Twitter about Shapiro, and that doesn't help her cause, either.

What are you on about? My comment indicated nether of this drivel here. I'm not a repug or a dem. They are both douchbags who don't give a rip about the people, they say they do, but they don't.

Dems do a slightly better job at the misdirection of pretending they care, they at least the decency to give you a reach around while they are, well, you know the rest.

Chickened out? Wouldn't that imply she had previously agreed to debate? Or at least would be reasonably expected to agree, such as a request for a debate issued by her actual electoral opponent.

She has zero obligation to agree to debate this gadfly who is merely seeking to increase his own public profile but has exactly zero relevance in terms of the election she's getting ready for.

There is a 100 percent lack of comprehension on your part, regarding calguys's post.

The rest of your post has nothing to do with my reply.

Candace Owens just tweeted this
—-
I am a proud non-Feminist. I have always understood that the movement became about taking down men, not empowering women.

@Ocasio2018 perverting a debate request is not unique—it is part and parcel of the core tenants of feminism today.

Toxic and vindictive

Her response to debating Sharpiro:

"Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions," she said of the demands that she debate Shapiro. "And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one."

Seems to me she's already clobbered him. Go home Ben before you really get hurt.

The disparity of force would be inhumane.
