Senator Joe Manchin’s Maserati was swarmed by climate change protesters on Thursday who claimed that he tried to run them over while blockading his car from exiting an underground garage and chanting “F*** Joe Manchin!”

“We blockaded Joe Manchin’s car and he tried to run us over,” a TikTok video posted by @hungry4climatejustice boasted showing activists attacking the senator from West Virginia.

The video shows a throng of protesters standing in front of and behind Manchin’s car as he tried to slowly inch forward and exit the garage. They pounded a drum while chanting obscenities at the moderate Democrat. They also held a banner up while one person leaned on the vehicle’s hood. Numerous videos were taken from different vantage points. A car horn can be heard blaring but it’s not clear whether it was from Manchin’s vehicle or not.

“This is Joe Manchin’s car slowly pressing into our peaceful protesters,” one person asserts. “We want to live! We want to live!” That phrase was constantly chanted along with “F*** Joe Manchin!” It seemed to be the rallying cry of the demonstration and was ostensibly meant to sway Manchin into supporting President Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar Build Back Better social spending package that includes funds for climate change.

“Pass climate change bill!” screamed one woman. “This is Joe Manchin’s car slowly pressing into our peaceful protestors!”

Thomas Kennedy, who describes himself on Twitter as a Democratic National Committee member and a “known agitator,” posted one of the angles taken of the incident that was put up by the group Hunger Strike 4 Justice.

“Watch Joe Manchin drive his car into protestors who are demanding that he stop blocking climate provisions in the Build Back Better package on behalf of fossil fuel and other corporate interests. What an awful, selfish, greedy man,” he tweeted.

Another video posted by Hunger Strike 4 Climate Justice shows a different angle of the confrontation. “[Sen. Joe Manchin], is the money worth selling our futures downriver? Is the money that green? Is it that good for you? How’d that Maserati feel while you drove into us this morning? #WeWantToLive,” they tweeted.

 

No one was injured during the confrontation and Manchin eventually crawled his way out of the parking structure.

Earlier in the day, Manchin was videoed having difficulty getting to his car because of protesters accosting him.

The encounter occurred on Thursday morning at Manchin’s houseboat location in Washington, D.C. By the end of the day, “Maserati” was trending on Twitter as if being successful and owning a luxury vehicle was some kind of sin.

“This action in front of his yacht club is to highlight that he is a bought-out politician,” proclaimed Kidus Girma, who is a member of the Sunrise Movement, which has endorsed the Green New Deal.

Girma stated that the group was demanding the full “Build Back Better” agenda while claiming that President Biden wasn’t fighting hard enough for it.

The protest turned personal with demonstrators surrounding Manchin and chanting “we want to live.” Girma told Fox News that the protest followed a scheduled 14-day hunger strike that he and others recently ended “to refuel our bodies and bring the fire to Senator Manchin.”

“As we watch Manchin obstruct, obstruct, obstruct critical legislation that’s important for human existence on this planet, we want Senate leadership, President Biden to recognize that he is not a good faith actor – as they already know – and just start naming and shaming him,” urged Girma.

Some of the protesters held up a large orange and red banner that read “Joe Manchin is burning our future for profit.”

While leftists applauded the assault, others vigorously condemned their actions:
