Professor Offers To ‘Rip’ Ben Shapiro’s ‘Shoulder Out Of His Socket’ For Charity

A University of California, Merced professor declined to debate conservative author Ben Shapiro, but offered to fight him, according to audio released Wednesday.

Fernando Cortes Chirino, a sociology professor at the school, addressed Shapiro’s upcoming visit to Merced and suggested he would enjoy “ripping this fool’s shoulder out of his socket” in a charity fight, reported Campus Reform.

“I wouldn’t debate him, because being in the same room as that fool is putting this nonsense fascist ideologue on equal footing with me, using my real degree to legitimize garbage politics that are at best nonsensical,” said Chirino.

“Gladiator? You should pass this around,” said the professor to students. “While I won’t debate this fool, why don’t you all set up some sort of an MMA thing between me and him. And then, the winner can take those $40,000 and give them to whatever charity they want…gladiator my ass.”
