Orwell Was A Pollyanna

Ben Shapiro challenged prog flavor of the month Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez to a debate – something she’s never had in her “political career”.

Now, there’s no requirement that a pol debate anyone, ever – even their opponents for office, much less pundits.   Of course, it can be used against you – not that it matters in a one-party town like Ocasio-Cortez’ district.

And there are so many ways to decline a debate request like this:

  • “Sorry – I’m getting ready for a general election (coronation?), and I’m too busy”.
  • “Debating you will be of no consequence to serving (koff koff) my constituents and my district.  Why would either of us waste our time?”
  • “I’ve got drapes to measure that evening”
  • “I gotta wash my hair”.
  • Or the old reliable “<silence>”.

That’s not what Ocasio-Cortez did, though:

Asking for a debate is “like catcalling” – sexist, intrusive, unwanted, arrogant.

A response that is, itself, sexist and arrogant, and a sign of a mind that can think on no other plane than the politics of identity and outrage.

Congratuations, New York.  You got another winner here.  (Not that Minnesota has anything to brag about, since the equally risible Alondra Cano  Alondra Cano, Ray Dehn and Keith Ellison remain in office).

SIDE NOTE:   Remember when the same people who are raving about Ocasio-Cortez today were calling Sarah Palin  an ignorant dumbass?

This is the sound of “the bar” in freefall.

  1. A particularly weird response given that Shapiro is such a nerd that he brags about being a virgin when he was married.
    He would wipe the floor with her in a debate (is that sexist? Of course it is!).
    Shapiro is a doctrinaire free trader. His views on economics are as correct, and as simplistic, as an economics primer. I would like to see Shapiro debate pro-Brexit economic historian Niall Ferguson.

  2. I think Ocasio-Cortez will prove herself the lightest of lightweights in short order. I don’t believe Joe Crowley has endorsed her candidacy to date and although he has said he’s not running as a third party candidate he very well may get pushed by the Dem elite to do so (the same ones that worked against Bernie).

    Frankly I’m fine if she’s in and wins, she’ll showcase not only her own failings but that of the other Socialist dimwits as well.

  3. If she’s calling that “catcalls”, it suggests that despite being fairly attractive, she doesn’t have much experience with them. Maybe the inner dingbat she indulges isn’t terribly attractive to the men around her?

  4. I guess Candace has been serving out some whoop ass for a couple days, boss.

    The dirty leftists in Philly lost their minds while she was having breakfast in their fetid shithole the other day.

  6. Scott: I believe you got stuck in moderation since you used the S O C I A L I $ T word, which contains the male enhancement spam word.

  7. Ocasio-Cortez needs some tune-up debates, similar to a prize-fighter taking on a series of patsies to buff his record. Unfortunately for her, the only tomato can she can beat in a debate might be Betty McCollum.
