Ironic! WVA Coal Miners Lend Hand to Couple With Dead EV

Note: This article may contain commentary or the author's opinion.

It’s a green new world folks! Brandon and his Democrat buddies are dragging us kicking and screaming into a world without fossil fuel, and it’s going to be awesome! Just imagine a world without all of those ugly power plants and coal mines, replaced instead by acres and acres of windmills and vast tracts of what used to be farmland, now replaced with solar panels. Just so beautiful!

We are going to save the planet! Just ask any Democrat, we are doomed if we don’t stop burning fossil fuels. If everyone would just cooperate and stop eating meat and stop cooling and heating their houses, and maybe stop breathing out so much carbon dioxide, we’ll be fine! Oh, and buy an electric vehicle! Don’t wait, do it now before we all burst into flames! Never mind that electric vehicles are super expensive, very prone to mechanical problems, have no real plan in place for disposal, replacement, or recycling of old batteries, and there’s no infrastructure in place to charge them. Just go get one! The Earth is at stake!

Of course, as one eco-friendly couple driving through West Virginia discovered recently, you better have some good walking shoes and a charging station nearby, otherwise you are going to be lost and stranded in West Virginia. Scary stuff! Check this out from Outkick:

Last week a couple from Washington D.C. was headed to a weekend getaway in their electric vehicle when their battery died. The vehicle died in the middle of nowhere in West Virginia. Luckily the middle of nowhere had a coal mine nearby.

The mine’s foreman was contacted, and several miners were recruited to help push the electric vehicle to the mine’s guard shack where the couple was able to charge it.

Now, I’m sure I don’t have to explain the meaning of the word irony, but if you aren’t sure, go look it up. I’ll wait. This is the most delicious type of irony. A young couple from DC, undoubtedly libs, driving through West Virginia, probably making snide comments about hillbillies and coal mines and banjo music. Then their bright, shiny, green future chugged to a halt, only to be rescued by the thing they hate the most, dirty fossil fuel miners! Oh the indignity!

Since conservatives tend to be good people that care about their fellow man, the miners were more than happy to pitch in and help. Try to break down in DC and see what you get. Actually don’t.

Tucker County Republican state Sen. Randy Smith had this to say:

“So here are 5 coal miners pushing a battery car to the coal mine to charge up,”

“This just shows you coal miners are good people and will go out of their way to help anyone friend or foe.”

“I’m honestly glad they ended up where they could get some help because they couldn’t get a tow truck to come and this is out in the middle of nowhere.”

“It was pretty ironic… to be plugged into a coal mine, you can’t make this stuff up… We had some good conversations, we’re still laughing about it.”

Luckily for these folks there are good people in West Virginia, even if libs in DC hate their way of life. We may be forced into a green future with electric vehicles, but the fact remains that something has to generate the electricity to charge them, and that something is most likely coal. Solar and wind are too inefficient, so fossil fuels to the rescue!

Just make sure to note the available charging stations before rolling out on that family vacation in your new electric station wagon, you can’t plug into a tree!
