If you’ve ever felt like giving up the fight, here are some examples that will re-energize you. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and LeBron James both hit back at their right wing nut-job trolls this week and the result was sooo sweet!!
Ben Shapiro, a conservative commentator challenged democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to a debate, offering to donate $10,000 to her campaign if she accepted.
“Miss 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. You’ve noted that you think Republicans are afraid to debate you or talk to you or discuss the issues with you,” Shapiro said. “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,” he continued. “We can have an hour long conversation about all the topics under the sun, really probe your belief system.”

In response, Ocasio-Cortez made it clear that she was having none of Shapiro’s trolling.
Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions.
And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one. pic.twitter.com/rsD17Oq9qe

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions. And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one.” Ouch! That must have stung, eh Ben??
Now, remember when Laura Ingraham told LeBron James to “shut up and dribble”?

According to the Bleacher Report, LeBron is producing a new series called, ‘Shut Up and Dribble’. Ain’t karma sweet?
These are great examples of two fierce people who will not be kept down or intimidated by right wing lunatics. Let it re-energize you to keep going. Democrats will flip the House in November!!
