Brooklyn Witches Plan to Curse Justice Kavanaugh
BROOKLYN — October 17, 2018
A new wave of discontent has erupted in Brooklyn over the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. This time, feminists calling themselves Brooklyn witches have openly declared that they will conduct magical rituals against all rapists, including Kavanaugh, to once and for all put an end to the evil they create.
A bookstore in Brooklyn is planning a public event to put a hex on newly-confirmed Supreme Court Justice next Saturday night.
Catland Books, in the Bushwick neighborhood of the New York City borough, says that Kavanaugh will be the focus of the event, but it will curse “all rapists and the patriarchy,” too. To promote the “Ritual to Hex Brett Kavanaugh,” the bookstore has sent out invites over Eventbrite.
“We will be embracing witchcraft’s true roots as the magik of the poor, the downtrodden and disenfranchised and its 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 him,” the event description reads.
The statement notes that Kavanaugh 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.”
“We wanted to have an act of resistance,” Dakota Bracciale, the event organizer, told TIME. “It’s about having space for survivors of sexual assault who are not going to be silent and who don’t want Brett Kavanaugh to serve as a symbol of defeat.”
The event organizers also promise to hold a second ritual after the “The Rites of the Scorned One” to support women and men who can no longer remain silent about the issue of sexual assault.
“We’re raising visibility and letting people know they’re not alone with the monsters,” Bracciale said. “Even the witches are coming out of the woodwork to stop this.”
According to Bracciale view, most of the event will be dedicated to women who will be able to share their stories. It is also expected that the event will include Democratic Party representatives.
Organizers will also collect written statements describing the disturbing events the women have experienced, which will then be submitted to the court.
Catland Books put on three events to hex President Donald Trump last summer and is considering adding more public hex events later this year due to of the high interest in the sold-out event.
The ceremony for cursing Kavanaugh is open to everyone, with a $10 entrance fee.
Senators approved Kavanaugh in a narrow 50-48 vote. This the first time since 1881 that a Supreme Court justice has been approved with such difficulty. At that time, Stanley Matthew was approved 24-23.
The vote was a great victory for Republicans in general and Trump in particular, before the November midterm elections.
Kavanaugh is considered a consistent supporter of conservatives and their interpretation of American law, thus the Court is now 5-4 conservative vs. liberal.
I applaud and congratulate the U.S. Senate for confirming our GREAT NOMINEE, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, to the United States Supreme Court. Later today, I will sign his Commission of Appointment, and he will be officially sworn in. Very exciting!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 6, 2018
As for Trump himself, witches and representatives from other “magic groups” seem to have united against him — exorcists, witches, and occultists. Many of them conduct daily rituals against him, usually at midnight. The first such ritual was held on February 25.
