Conservative savant Ben Shapiro has officially vowed to donate a whopping $10,000 to socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign — as long as she can do one little thing.
As the Democratic Party slides further to the left, their once covert communist values are unabashedly on full display. Perhaps the latest example of the left’s march toward their Marxist leanings is the rise of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Socialist who beat New York 14th congressional district incumbent Joe Crowley in one of the most prominent upset victories of the 2018 midterm elections.
As a proud socialist, Ocasio-Cortez boasts that her leadership will propel America into an era of free healthcare, prison abolition, and guaranteed income for all. Disturbingly, many young liberals have fallen for her romanticization of history’s deadliest political ideology, bedazzled by her vow to proverbially level the playing field. However, her utopian goal is being challenged by one of the most brilliant thinkers in the political arena today.
On August 8, editor-in-chief of the Daily Wire Ben Shapiro promised to donate a whopping $10,000 to Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign if she’ll do one simple thing — debate him on her socialist policies. According to his website, Shapiro issued a challenge to Ocasio-Cortez, who is being hailed by the head of the DNC as “the future of the party,” to a civil debate concerning the policies she claims will prosper America.
“I really just want to make a direct appeal to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, ‘the future’ of the Democratic Party, according to Tom Perez, head of the DNC,” said Shapiro. “Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, I’m really excited that you’ve been elevated to that position, and I would love to have a real conversation with you about the issues,” he added.
“You’ve noted you think Republicans are afraid to debate you or talk to you or discuss the issues with you,” he continued. “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,’ and we can have an hour-long conversation about all the topics under the sun, really probe your belief system.”
Shapiro confidently offered to argue Ocasio-Cortez’s points in a respectful manner, even pledging to contribute as much money as the law will allow. Of course, while conservatives are hoping she’ll take him up on his offer, liberals are horrified at the thought of their Bernie Sanders protégé engaging in civil discourse with anyone with even a second grader’s understanding of basic economics.
“So let’s make this happen,” Shapiro concluded. “Let’s make America a more civil and interesting place. Let’s do this thing.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s pipe-dream theories have been relentlessly scrutinized, with critics asking the simple question of how she plans to fund “all that free stuff.” Of course, the up-and-coming politico has yet to provide a substantial answer other than taxing the 1 percent even more than they already are.
According to Ocasio-Cortez’s official platform, she plans to turn commodities into human rights, including offering free healthcare, jobs for all, free college, and disbanding immigration authorities. Her disturbing stance on these issues is summarized on her campaign website.
Medicare For All
Improved and Expanded Medicare for All is the ethical, logical, and affordable path to ensuring no person goes without dignified healthcare. Medicare for All will reduce the existing costs of healthcare (and make Medicare cheaper, too!) by allowing all people in the US to buy into a universal healthcare system…
A Federal Jobs Guarantee
Alexandria endorses a Federal Jobs Guarantee, because anyone who is willing and able to work shouldn’t struggle to find employment. A Federal Jobs Guarantee would create a baseline standard for employment that includes a $15 minimum wage (pegged to inflation), full healthcare, and child and sick leave for all…
Higher Education / Trade School For All
Roughly every 100 years, the United States expands its public education system to match its increasingly advanced economy. It’s now time to expand our national education system to include tuition-free public college and trade school….
Immigration Justice / Abolish ICE
It’s time to abolish ICE, clear the path to citizenship, and protect the rights of families to remain together…
Since Ben Shapiro has offered $10,000 to her campaign, it’d be safe to bet just as much that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will not only refuse to debate him, she likely won’t even acknowledge his proposal. The left knows that the greatest threat to their ideas is civil discourse because logic and truth easily expose the flaws in their agenda.
Hopefully, Ocasio-Cortez takes Shapiro up on his offer. After all, she could use the money to fund all of her incredibly expensive “free” stuff.
