Joe Manchin, Democrat of West Virginia, is hated by the hard left, as he constantly scuttles their plans. Good man. As Manchin represents a seriously red state, he is merely representing his constituents. That is called representative democracy. The Left hates that and so, like angry children, they lash out.
FNC: “The progressive Squad is lashing out at Sen. Joe Manchin after the West Virginia Democrat announced his opposition to congressional Democrats’ highest priority piece of legislation, known as the For the People Act. Manchin said Sunday he won’t support the sweeping election overhaul reform because it’s too partisan and would further divide the country – earning the wrath of the most liberal members of Congress.
“The Squad has long been frustrated with Manchin for his stance against eliminating the filibuster, which would allow Democrats to pass legislation in the Senate with a simple majority. Progressives want to push through an ambitious agenda – including D.C. statehood, voting rights, gun control and police reform – while Democrats have control of the House, Senate and White House. Manchin’s additional opposition to the For the People Act – numbered S.1 to signify it is the No. 1 priority for Democrats – means the legislation is doomed since it required total Democratic support in the Senate for any glimmer of hope to advance. Democrats viewed the federal legislation as an urgent remedy to the stricter state-level voting rules Republicans have enacted since former President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election. Manchin represents the red state of West Virginia and maintains a more conservative record for his political survival and has long preached bipartisanship and preserving traditions in the Senate. If Manchin is voted out of office when he’s up for re-election in 2024, Democrats would lose a key Senate seat to Republicans.”
Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-NY, said Manchin was the “new Mitch McConnell.” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, accused the moderate senator of backing GOP “voter suppression.” And a third New York Democrat, Rep. Mondaire Jones, said Manchin is trying to “preserve Jim Crow.” Missouri Rep. Cori Bush, a Black Lives Matter thug before Congress, said Manchin should just fall in line with the rest of his party “or get out of our way.” Nice of them to expose their authoritarian manners.
Manchin & Co. be like “defund the police costs us elections” while actively sabotaging our Dem agenda.
Our movement was at the heart of the organizing that won us the 2020 elections. Now conservative Dems block our progress.
Join us in saving lives or get out of our way.

“I understand the frustrations,” Manchin said. “Ya know, this is a tough business we’re in.” Ha!! That’s the way to stand up to these toddlers! We’re not saying Joe Manchin is perfect or votes with the Republican Party all the time. We are saying that for a Democrat he’s a hero and a good man.
