The stupid, it burns: Conservative Christians worry that feminists are placing powerful “hexes” on President Donald Trump.
Always superstitious and gullible, fearful conservative Christians worry that feminists are using black magic to sabotage the Trump administration.
Feeding the gullible Christians, conservative website Breitbart reports on “the rise of feminist witchcraft,” noting:
Following President Trump’s inauguration, witches, covens, and even A-list celebrities started to hex the president with frequent “spells.”
The article, written by Breitbart tech reporter Charlie Nash, claims that the terms “witch” and “feminist” have now become synonymous.
Earlier this week Nash appeared on Breitbart’s daily radio program to defend his bizarre and silly conspiracy theory, breathlessly claiming that there are “groups of people who are actually trying to hex the president.”
On the program Nash tried to explain his crackpot conspiracy theory, noting:
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.
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.
When asked if he believed Trump was bringing about “some sort of a rise in occultism,” Nash answered:
It’s definitely a reality that occultism is becoming an increasing thing under Trump.
Bottom line: Fueled by Breitbart conspiracy theories, conservative Christians worry feminists are using witchcraft to destroy Trump.
