According to Right Wing Watch, the president of right wing group Intercessors for America, Dave Kubal, spent time during a prayer call last month making the case that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is either a witch or possessed by demons.
What leads Kubal to this conclusion? Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional district is home to “coven of witches that cast spells on President Trump 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
These demonic forces operate via billionaire philanthropist George Soros, federal judge Kimba Wood, and — last but not least — Ocasio-Cortez.
“It’s been widely publicized that there is a coven of witches that cast spells on President Trump 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This particular coven is found in the southern portion of New York City,” Kubal told his viewers.
And the southern portion of New York City is also home to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, which is where Judge Kimba Wood presided over the case against President Donald Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen.
Further, Kubal noted, Wood also officiated Soros’ wedding in 2013, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was in attendance.
But who is at the center of all this demonic activity?
“So, right in the middle of all of this, the southern district, in the middle of where these witches are doing the 24/7 spell-casting, we find the territory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” Kubal said.
He goes on: “Her district is in the center of all of this going on. Is this a coincidence? Maybe … Is there an evil thread running through this area, trying to dispel diabolical power?”
Kubal then led his viewers in prayer, asking God that “it would be perfectly clear that the evil that is using them would be exposed.”
As noted by Friendly Atheist, calling a woman a witch historically has been one of the best ways to discredit her, and even in the year 2019, evangelicals are willing to employ this trope.
“It’s one thing to try and discredit Rep. Ocasio-Cortez because of the policies she supports — actually, that’s the most legitimate way to criticize any politician,” Friendly Atheist writes. “But calling her a witch? Now that’s just lazy.”
