Post-Kavanaugh, Liberals Turn To (Spins Wheel) Witchcraft For Self Help

Why read the Onion when you have this kind of piece from Vox?

From the “article

First, take a candle.

Then, pour some salt into your hand.

Then, keeping the grains in your palm, take a pen to write out a thank you to Christine Blasey Ford, the woman whose allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee — and now justice — Brett Kavanaugh, stunned a nation.

Or, if you prefer, simply say, “I believe you.”

It’s just one of the many quasi-religious rituals circulating the internet — particularly pagan and #resistance circles — in the wake of Kavanaugh’s confirmation. These rituals help self-identified witches process trauma, anger, and grief.

The Gratitude Spell was authored by Instagram user @celestight (who did not respond to request for comment) for the pagan political organization WitchtheVote, which mobilizes voters to support candidates that defend progressive and feminist causes. In this open-ended spell, participants might choose to make a sigil — a sacred sign — on the paper, or vary their tribute to Ford in accordance with their own personal experiences and history. They might, if they so choose, send their note to Ford directly.

No matter what, the message is the same. We’re in this together. I believe you.

Unless you’re all the women Bill Clinton assaulted and Hillary helped cover up.

The historical nature of witchcraft has made it a particularly fruitful field for ritual. As the organizers of an upcoming “Hex Kavanaugh” event at Catland, a pagan bookstore and supply shop in Brooklyn, put it on their event page, “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 him.”

And these are people who want to be taken seriously.

    We suspect there are more neoNazis, white supremacists and KKKers associated the GOP than witches with the Dems.

    Do you think witches are more dangerous than neoNazis?

      Kicked anyone today, little fella?https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

    • Mangoldielocks says:

      How many NeoNazi’s are burning down buildings, pounding on the supreme court and threatening to murder supreme court justices or the president?

      How many White supremacists are there in comparison to black panthers or Muslim Brotherhood or Mexican gangs here illegally?

      I think you have your own closet full of skeletons to worry about. You should stop worrying about the GOP closet and get your own closet cleaned up.

      Like Clinton said….when we are in power then we can be civil, until we are in power then its our duty to be douche bags and to resist with violence and threats and deny constitutional rights of conservatives.

      Like Eric Holder said when they go low we go even lower and inflict violence on them.

      It is NOT UNTIL WE ARE IN POWER CAN WE HAVE CIVILITY….THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS A MOB OF THUGS who hate America, hate Conservatives, hate Christians, Hate Jews, hate wealth, hate corporations, hate, hate, hate.

      And Jethro bodine here is all worried about a few thousand KKK and Neo Nazis as the greatest evil on the planet while his party burns, destroyes and threatens violence daily against any and all of us on the right, even running SENATORS out of restaurants and mugging senators and shooting up conservative softball teams.

      Yeah…A VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS RIGHT NOW IS A VOTE FOR ANARCHY IN AMERICA. Remember that Independents when you go vote next month.

      • Jethro says:

        Buckle up, buttercup. We’ve never seen the brave cons so afraid of shouting women!

        When did our manly GOPhers become such snowflakes?? If you can’t stand up to girls in vagina hats how can you stand up to Putin and Kim?? Oh, that’s right. LOL.

        Maybe you need to get a brave neoNazi to run over a few with his car like in Charlottesville.

        We get it. You’re afraid of losing the House in Nov so you’re making up scheisse to motivate your voters. Good luck. “Girls are going to accuse you of rape! Vote Republican!”

        • formwiz says:

          Afraid? You’re dumb enough to confuse fear with anger.

          We don’t have to stand up to girls in vagina hats. We just laugh at them and, if you look, Putin and Kim are terribly docile these days. Mocha Messiah didn’t build that.

          And, the way things are looking, our House seats may grow. Didn’t you see Ned Silver and the Gray Lady’s house shill hedging their bets? You’re the ones in trouble and your little show of bravado about witches or something else medieval is just the rest of the Left talking tough.

          All noise, no action.

          • Jethro says:

            Nice try, buttercup. Sure sounds just like fear.

            We understand it’s just a political ploy but it’s poorly thought out.

            The manly Repubs are terrified by a few shouting ladies. LOL.

        • Mangoldielocks says:

          Lets push the RESET BUTTON. I can be more flexible after the elections. Elections have consequences. Conservatives are a basket of deplorables. When they go low we go lower and kick them. We can only be civil after we are in power.

          This is what we are afraid of. Because those on the right are 99 percent law abiding citizens who will accept that elections have consequences. The mob on the right was a bunch of senior citizens marching peacefully and showing up at townhall meetings forcing Democrats to RUN from the truth.

          The truth that they were attempting to destroy America one brick at a time.

          We will try to vote one more time on comprehensive immigration reform and then we have to get back to passing anti-war resolutions against Bush.

          Bush is Hitler. Cheney is Goebels. Conservatives are Nazis.

          Fascism has come to America but it is not Donald Trump and the GOP it is the democratic party who cannot accept the results of an election.

          We are afraid for our nation, not of a bunch of pussies marching in the street screaming they want to castrate every man who does not bow down to their insanity.

          We are afraid for our nation.

    • formwiz says:

      They almost deprived us of a good man at SCUS.

      PS Which we is this? You and Mommy?

      • Jethro says:

        GOPhers had the votes all along, and wanted a fight to help in November. One third of the men on the Supreme Court have credible accusations of sexual harassment. So does our president.

    • dachs_dude says:

      Yeah, 50 or so cosplayers in Nazi clothing is nothing compared to the paid mobs of the Soros sponsored Antifa, BLM, Occupy Wall Street, and dozens of other astroturf groups.

      You truly are a result of a public school indoctrination.

  2. Nate Lenz says:

    First, take a candle.

    Then, pour some salt into your hand.

    Then throw the salt into your eyes and press your palm down firmly on the burning candle.

  3. formwiz says:

    Little Jeffery uses “buttercup”, as if it makes him sound like a tough guy.

    If the Rs were scared of several hundred screaming lunatic women, it didn’t stop them from confirming Brother Bret. Also, if McConnell did have the votes why did he put up with the Flake’s delay?

    And the only one afraid is little Jeffery. There are 6 Senate seats (WV, MT, IN, ND, MO, FL) that could swing R. Worse for the Demos, House seats are swinging against them. The FL seat sought by Donna Shalala is going under even though Trump lost the district by 20 points in ’16.

    A few facts and numbers – 41% of Hispanics and 38% of blacks support Trump. They don’t have to vote R, all they have to do is stay home and the Demos lose (refer to Van Jones). The Demos have also declared war on not only white men, but white women. Great way to get the Indie and moderate R vote. So Indies, Rs, what used to be called Reagan Democrats, and Kanye West blacks are all mad and all united.

    Calling somebody “buttercup” is easy. Looking at the facts just shows how scared you really are.

    It took 4 days for Jeffery to open his mouth after the vote went down. 2 weeks after November 6.

    • david7134 says:

      One of Jeff’s boast is that he used to hang with a black gang. He does not realize that he was their white pet,as if hanging with a bunch of up and coming jail birds is heoric. I really think he likes the sex they have him.

      • Jethro says:

        dave,

        You’re still such a smelly old liar. Now you’re just making stuff up. Must be the tRump effect – lying is not only acceptable, it’s desirable.

    • Jethro says:

      This is where you would supply some evidence, buttercup.

      A few facts and numbers – 41% of Hispanics and 38% of blacks support Trump.

      LOL

      • formwiz says:

        Your pals in the media.

        PS the LOL is another old troll attempt to ward off the fact you’re losing.

        Enjoy November 7.

    With less than a month to Election Day, the Generic Congressional Ballot is now dead even.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone and online survey finds that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters would choose the Democratic candidate if the elections for Congress were held today. Another 45% would opt for the Republican. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    A tie as of Wednesday after holding upwards of a 20 point lead. There is an old saying. Don’t shit in your mess kit. The democrats are having diaherea in theirs.

  5. Mangoldielocks says:

    Prepare to weep:

    President Trump is gaining popularity among black Americans according to the latest findings from Rassmussen Reports daily tracking poll.

    The poll also found 48 percent of likely voters approve of the way President Trump is carrying out his job responsibilities.

    NAACP’s own poll reveals surge in black support for Trump – and they react badly

    African-American Support for Trump Surges to 35%

    August 3, 2018
    Hispanics, (yes, you read that right) push Trump’s poll numbers to 50%

    There are some stunning other details in that report. The report says Florida’s Puerto Ricans, the new residents of the state who’ve fled their commonwealth’s bankruptcy and hurricane corruption, are flocking to Republican candidate Rick Scott, along with younger Cuban-American voters. That stands out because ordinarily, these voters are all reliably Democratic Party voters. BUH BYE FLORIDA FOR THE DEMOCRATS.

    Confidence that African Americans, Asians and Hispanics have in their personal finances improving over the next four years should be enough to help GOP leaders retain control of Congress in the midterm elections and reelect President Trump, according to a new survey.

    While generally not fans of the president, the three key groups have a good feeling about their future and that should temper their concerns at the polls, said the survey from Zogby Analytics.

    The president is hoovering at or above 50 percent approval thanks to minorities who HAVE NOT>>NOT>>>NOT been rounded up and put in ovens or shuttled off to Africa or Mexico despite the Democrats insistence Trump and the GOP are racists.

    This is the LOL proof you wanted?

    • Jethro says:

      Thank you for trying to back up the poll numbers claimed. Your unsubstantiated typings are hardly proof, LOL or otherwise.

      The conservative RealClearPolitics, who evaluates many polls (including the GOP leaning Rasmussen polls) tells a different story. They have tRump’s approval at 43%, disapproval, 53%.

      https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/president_trump_job_approval-6179.html

      There is no reliable poll showing tRump’s approval with Blacks or Hispanics soaring to 40%.

      Gallup showed his current approval rating at 13 percent with an average fluctuation between 10 and 15 percent. Reuters also indicated a current approval rating of 13 percent among black voters with peaks of about 18 percent in February 2017 and May 2018. Numerous YouGov/Economist surveys from July and August also showed an average of a 13 percent approval rating. Only about 9 percent of black Americans approved of Trump in multiple Quinnipiac University surveys in the past two months.

      13% seems to be a reasonable estimate for tRump among Black voters.

      A real poll is to be conducted Nov 7.
