A group of Witches on Saturday sought to invoke supernatural punishment on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, arguing that the nominee of US President Donald Trump is not fit for public office due to sundry allegations of misconduct against him.
The Witches of Bushwick upheld their promise to “hex” Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Saturday night, carving his name into a black candle, dousing it in “Revenge Oil” and then setting it on fire in a private ceremony in the Brooklyn neighborhood of New York.
The goal was “exposing the fact that he’s a crook,” explained witch Dakota Bracciale, 29. “I mean if his d–k shrivels up and falls off, great, but I don’t think that’s something realistic to hope for.”
Witch Lindsay Von Wener, 26, said hexes work through the power of positive — or negative — suggestion, sort of as a matter of “witch-ful” thinking.
“If you put it out there, then it’ll happen,” she said. “If you watch Oprah, then you know how to do witchcraft.”
Outside the Bushwick performance venue, a dozen Christians protested. “We’re praying against their hexes,” one explained.
Some 60 people paid $10 to attend the hexing, which was billed as a get-out-the-vote rally and a fundraiser for LGBT causes and reproductive rights.
The ritual was organized by a Brooklyn-based practitioner named Dakota Bracciale, who also conjured up three events to hex President Trump last year, according to The Huffington Post.
Days before Kavanaugh’s confirmation Dr. Christine Blasey Ford came forward to say that he allegedly tried to rape her when they were both in high school in the 1980s. He fervently denied the allegation.
The hex against Kavanaugh is about “exacting justice that would otherwise be denied to you,” Bracciale said, and meant to be cathartic for survivors of sexual assault.
There’ll be photos and effigies of Kavanaugh, along with dirt from a graveyard and nails from a coffin, Bracciale said.
“Even if you don’t believe in the magic of it, you’re given the space and the affirmation, having your voice heard, feeling a sense of fellowship and camaraderie,” Bracciale said.
“We’re putting out the message that you’re not alone, we’re not leaving you alone with the monsters.”
