Conservative Women Challenge Ocasio-Cortez to a Debate (Since Ben Shapiro Is Too 'Sexist' For Her Liking)

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.

Oscasio-Cortez finally responded and basically said she wouldn't debate someone who she deems to be sexist.

Shapiro responded to Ocasio-Cortez's tweet:

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.

Here's who's willing to debate the Congressional candidate:

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.

The ball is in Alexandria's court. How will she proceed?
