The planned rite has angered Fox News and rightwing commentators, which is exactly the phase says the organiser
A coven of witches will gather in an occult bookstore in Brooklyn, New York, on Saturday to place a hex on the supreme court justice Brett Kavanaugh. Tickets to the event, which cost $10, with half the proceeds going to women’s and LGBT charities, have already sold out.
The event is not out of the ordinary for Catland Books, which describes itself as” Brooklyn’s premier metaphysical boutique and event space “. They have previously held ceremonies to hex Donald Trump as well as a” hex your ex” rite on Valentine’s Day.
Dakota Bracciale, co-owner of the store, told the Guardian the event will be an important act of protest and community outreach, even if some attendees are skeptical.
” The whole thing is going to be really cathartic, whether you believe it or not. The right has churches but the left is scattershot. The left is where you’re going to find atheists, secularists, humanists, people who follow non-traditional religions. So how are you going to get all of us together in times of trouble? That’s what we’ve been doing .”
The ceremony has become a talking phase for some rightwing commentators, who see it as part of a pattern of leftwing attacks on resulting Trump friends. On Fox News last Friday, Tucker Carlson discussed the coven’s schemes, taking particular umbrage with their notion to donate 25% of proceeds to Planned Parenthood, which he said would” help them continue to fund their human sacrifice rites “.
