A Breitbart reporter went on their daily radio show and spun dark tales of evil feminist witches casting spells on Donald Trump. Which is true, actually. Some witches have “cursed” Trump, which means they babbled a bunch of nonsense to non-existent gods and goddesses. That’s hardly a cause for concern.
“You’ve got the basic things like the Etsy stores, the Witchsy stores, where they link feminist issues with witchcraft and Wicca and there’s other kind of occult symbols, but then you also have these groups of people who are actually trying to hex the president,” Nash told Marlow.
Nash went on to explain that if someone looks at the social media hashtag “#MagicResistance” he or she will see “a lot of people who are actually starting to try and hex the president and people in the White House.” Nash said that some people trying to use witchcraft against Trump have constructed elaborate “altars and tables with candles and pentagrams.” He told Marlow that he believed there were multiple reasons for the trend.“Firstly, it creates an almost—a sense of sisterhood. They have these other women which they can kind of get together and have a weird time with. Secondly, I think it scares religious people. Obviously, a lot of these people are atheistic. They like to wind up the Christians. And thirdly, I think they also have a kind of—they feel like they have a connection to the persecuted women of the Salem witch trials. They look at these women and see them as kind of as victims of patriarchy, almost,” Nash said.
No, the people doing this are not atheists. Atheists know that praying to supernatural gods and goddesses by Wiccans is just as pointless as praying to Allah or Jehovah. And yes, they like to wind up the Christians. So what do you do? Get wound up and throw a fit over it. Their babbling to the sky is as pointless as yours is and we’re laughing at both of you for it.
