Latching onto Tucker Carlson’s concern over witches casting spells against the newest Supreme Court justice, Women for Trump co-founder Amy Kremer said Sunday that times are scary for Republicans — in part because witches are hexing them.
> “It is a scary time right now,” Kremer said Sunday morning during an appearance on MSNBC. She had been prompted by host Ali Velshi to discuss the prevalence of violent language in political discourse, specifically words such as “mob” and “gangs,” which are often used by President Trump and other Republicans to describe liberals.
> A tea party activist and stalwart supporter of Trump, Kremer immediately sprang to the president’s defense, ticking off a list of instances in which “the left” and the “mobs going on out there right now” have made it difficult for high-profile conservatives to go anywhere without being harassed.
And also, there are the witches:
> “Now, you’ve got witches that are placing a hex on [Supreme Court Justice] Brett Kavanaugh,” Kremer said, putting particular emphasis on the word “hex.”
> Describing the political climate as a “scary time,” Kremer noted that “there’s a list of things going on,” before mentioning the witches putting a hex on Kavanaugh, whose confirmation was held up because of allegations of sexual misconduct, which he vehemently denied. Kavanaugh was sworn in as a Supreme Court justice on Oct. 6.
Though social media users were quick to inform Kremer that witches and dark magic are not real, The Post noted that there are indeed witches planning to hex Kavanaugh — along with the entire patriarchy — and the deal will go down this coming Saturday.
> According to a Facebook event called “Ritual to Hex Brett Kavanaugh,” dozens of witches will gather in Brooklyn on Saturday for a “public hex on Brett Kavanaugh, upon all rapists and the patriarchy at large which emboldens, rewards and protects them.”
> As of early Monday morning, more than 1,300 people have indicated that they are attending the already sold-out event, which will take place at Catland, an occult bookstore described as “Brooklyn’s premier metaphysical boutique and event space.”
> “We are embracing witchcraft’s true roots as the magik of the poor, the downtrodden and disenfranchised and it’s [sic] history as often the only weapon, the only means of exacting justice available to those of us who have been wronged by men just like [Kavanaugh],” the event’s description reads. “He will be the focal point, but by no means the only target, so bring your rage and all of the axes you’ve got to grind.”
Whether or not the hexing produces real-world results, the event’s organizer — Brooklyn-based witch Dakota Bracciale — and her friends have already succeeded in striking fear in the hearts of at least one conservative.
