Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a passionate and outspoken socialist — but she seems unwilling to defend the logic of her beliefs.
Conservative commentator and Daily Wire editor Ben Shapiro recently challenged the rising Democrat star to a debate, yet Ocasio-Cortez immediately compared Shapiro’s challenge to “catcalling.”
The claim is ridiculous, but what makes it even more ridiculous is that Shapiro offered $10,000 to Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign for New York’s 14th Congressional District or a charity of her choice.

Conservative women are now offering similar challenges to the young politician to debate the issues. Turning Point USA Director of Urban Engagement Candace Owens (shown above, bottom left), CRTV host Allie Beth Stuckey (bottom right), and musician Kaya Jones (top right) — who also sits on the National Diversity Coalition for Trump — are among those have challenged her, but to no avail.
Ocasio-Cortez has yet to respond to any of these women.
“I think she’s scared to debate,” Jones said to co-host Ainslie Earhardt (above, top left) on Tuesday morning on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” Jones revealed she has not heard back from Ocasio-Cortez.
Owens and Stuckey have also not heard any responses to date.
“I don’t think she knows what she’s going to debate about. I think she’s confused, even,” Jones added about Ocasio-Cortez, who has been the butt of many jokes online because of rambling interviews she’s given in which she weakly attempts to justify how the government would pay for all of the “free” services she wants it to provide.
Jones added that the ideas Ocasio-Cortez preaches about are not in line with America’s founding.
“These ideas of socialism are very anti-what the foundation of America is about and very anti-the platform that President Trump ran on. Their [the Democrats’] sole goal is to get rid of our military, get rid of our police — and they’re feeding rhetoric to the American people that [is] fueling an internal war, which is very scary,” the singer said.
