CHARLESTON, W.Va. — In a video posted Thursday to social media, climate activists surrounded Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) in his Maserati as he attempted to leave a parking garage.
The video, posted to the TikTok account “hungry4climatejustice”, opened with the caption “We blockaded Joe Manchin’s car and he tried to run us over,” showing the Senator laying on his horn as he attempts to roll past a mob surrounding and attempting to push against his $70,000 car to prevent him from moving.
The woman behind the camera brays “pass climate change bills”, before assessing the situation as “Joe Manchin’s car slowly pressing into our peaceful protestors”, while security staff appear to attempt to restrain those standing directly in front of the vehicle. As the mob breaks up, a protestor shouts “we want to live” (ironic, given that he’s standing in front of a moving car), and Manchin drives off.
Of course, this isn’t how the intellectuals over on Twitter framed the situation. In their unicellular minds, Manchin is both figuratively and literally trying to kill them.

This is all completely ridiculous. Manchin didn’t “drive his Maserati into climate protestors”, and these people know that full well. However, their entire worldview is predicated on the idea of a societal dichotomy comprised entirely of oppressors and victims — and naturally, they assume the positions of perpetual victims.
