The Daily Wire's Ben Shapiro got into a Twitter war with actor and comedian Patton Oswalt over socialism and anti-Semitism following the Republican debate Wednesday.

It was something to behold.

After a less-than-friendly back and forth, begun when Oswalt called on Bernie Sanders to "HELP US," the two traded barbs. The result was Oswalt incorrectly branding Shapiro a "neocon" and eventually going silent when asked by Shapiro about how his socialism mixed with his lucrative acting career.

"What I learned from @PattonOswalt today: (1) All Jews who aren’t left are neocons; (2) Socialism means being really rich and voting Sanders," concluded Shapiro.

Here's the exchange (also reported by both Breitbart and TheBlaze):

My #GOPDebate summary: HELP US @SenSanders.

If this was your takeaway, you need help. But follow that star, @PattonOswalt, follow that star! https://t.co/wxvnQUZkIz

I will, Ben! Enjoy your never-was neo-conservative shitscape! Give my love to Irving Kristol’s dumb ghost! https://t.co/8yal9FfAE9

As Breitbart notes, Shapiro is not a "neoconservative," particularly disagreeing with the ideology's nation-building platform (here's a helpful discussion of the term from The American Conservative). Shapiro noted that the "neocon" label carries an anti-Semitic connotation among both the far right and left (as Charles Krauthammer and Jeffrey Goldberg have argued). Shapiro also noted that the only connection between himself and Kristol was their Jewish heritage.

There’s nothing I appreciate more than celebrities dropping anti-Semitic slurs! Thanks, @PattonOswalt! https://t.co/SyBWJ7264E

Of COURSE that’s your go-to! You gloriously predictable little sparrowfaet. Never stop, Ben… https://t.co/pSQl07pSTq

Let me explain, you uber-rich pseudo-socialist buffoon. You attribute Kristol’s philosophy to me because I am a Jew. https://t.co/1NmKCLmE2R

— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 16, 2015

.@benshapiro No, dum-dum. Kristol is the father of neo-conservatism & helped popularize the term. That you’re both Jewish is incidental.

— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) December 16, 2015

Given that Kristol and I don’t share a philosophy, you have no other reason to connect us, dimwit. https://t.co/hhwHt2U2au

— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 16, 2015

I was wrong. It appears @PattonOswalt isn’t smart enough to know he’s using an anti-Semitic slur. He’s just a typical Hollywood dumbass.

— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 16, 2015

Shapiro then turned the conversation back to Oswalt's "pseudo-socialism" and pressed him to explain how he personally lived out his "socialist" principles, a line of questions that Oswalt clearly didn't feel as enthusiastic about responding to.

Clever! Now, when do you plan to give up your millions for the sake of ending income inequality? https://t.co/hr9kjCk2OS

— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 16, 2015

Wow. You understand socialism as well as you understand anti-semitism, trans rights and, apparently, Twitter. https://t.co/WkhglrPITf

— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) December 16, 2015

Please explain socialism to me from atop your mountain of “Ratatouille” money.https://t.co/QDHIidbWxA

Aaaaaaand you don’t know how residuals work. Or mountains.https://t.co/ebzljfZp1A

What is your net worth, @PattonOswalt, and what percentage of it do you give to those of lesser wealth? https://t.co/raXYN3Pjf9

— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 16, 2015

I am still waiting for your net worth and your charitable giving percentage. Fight income inequality, @PattonOswalt!

— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 16, 2015

Are you in the top 1% of income earners? Funny how this question won’t get answered. https://t.co/GUB7NXA3J8

— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 16, 2015

We can now list @PattonOswalt‘s net worth, as a Bernie Sanders socialist, as one of the great mysteries of the universe. He’ll never tell.

— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) December 16, 2015

After the temporary blackout, Oswalt responded with a good old fashioned "go f*** yourself," which brought Shapiro to his conclusions:

That would be 40% of Go Fuck Yourself, You Sniveling Creep?https://t.co/OPI4vE3VW3

— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) December 16, 2015

Funny, this is just what I say to socialists like @PattonOswalt and @BernieSanders.https://t.co/kmPnm7zPg9
