It doesn't work the way most people claim it works.

I'd love to debate her on that one. I love to debate Shapiro on the idea of attacking countries that have done nothing to us and how it's OK in his eyes to kill any innocent people that may be in the way of us doing that.

Think either would take me up on it?

Yep, both would savour the opportunity. I know Shapiro is certainly highly skilled at systematically dismantling a strawman. You wouldn’t last 2 minutes! Yours is a very weak strawman.

Shapiro is good at making feminists look stupid, but that doesn't take much doing, indeed people like Milo Yiannopoulos do an equally good job.

SJW's, Feminists, and others are just often idiotic.

Shapiro is less covincing when he talks about real political issues such as healthcare, and he has said some things about other health systems that were patently not true and I doubt Shapiro or indeed Ocasio Cortez would be covincing against specialists in their fields such as economists or health care experts.

Debating students, SJW's, feminists etc is very different from real political debate.

Being an authority on killing innocent people is not an impressive accomplishment. Shapiro appears to be the equal to a radio shock jock that knows how to get people to call in. It's easy when you control the cut off button.

On his daily Facebook live podcast “The Ben Shapiro Show” Wednesday, host and Editor-in-Chief of the Daily Wire Ben Shapiro challenged Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to a debate, saying, “I would love to debate her.”

“By the way, I’ve received a lot of emails: ‘Would I debate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?’ asked Ben Shapiro. “I would pay money to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign to debate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I would pay her money to come on the Sunday special. I would give money to her campaign if it meant that she would actually come on the Sunday special and answer some serious questions from somebody on the other side of the aisle.”

There is no straw man. There is a reason we butcher children in Yemen, occupy Afghanistan, drone niger, and support terrorists in Syria.

And Ben believes it’s because American exceptionalism.

When Shapiro says the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia have a moral right to butcher whoever they want and that civilians (many of who join terrorists groups to fight back) in said invaded countries get what’s coming for them, then maybe he should be the one to pull the trigger.
Exactly. He advocates aggressive military actions but hasn't served in the military - talk about a chickenhawk.

Default Maolibu Barbie now offered $100k to debate and defend socialism

Candace Owens is calling out Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for refusing to debate her and other conservatives.

Following the Democratic socialist congressional candidate's rejection of Ben Shapiro's offer to donate $10,000 to a charity of her choice in exchange for an hour-long debate, Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk upped the ante.

Kirk tweeted that he has a group of donors who will contribute $100,000 to a charity of Ocasio-Cortez's choosing if she will debate Owens, who serves as communication director for Turning Point USA.
