The witch trial of Justice Brett Kavanaugh has inspired actual witches to cast spells in his name, including the organization of a “Hex Kavanaugh” event.
According to Vox, “many quasi-religious rituals” are making the rounds in the halls of social media that are meant to “help self-identified witches process trauma, anger, and grief” in the wake of Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.
One popular spell is the “Gratitude Spell” authored by Instagram user @celestight for the pagan political organization WitchTheVote that focuses on feminist causes like child sacrif — I mean, abortion.
“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,” reports Vox. “They might, if they so choose, send their note to Ford directly.”
It’s no secret that witchcraft and feminism go together like Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood, but the practice has especially seen an uptick during the Trump era. Since day one of his administration, these feminist witches have performed a variety of spells and hexes to “bind” the president from implementing policies they dislike. Considering that Kavanaugh made it to the Supreme Court, the spells are clearly not working.
Both Christianity and Judaism regard witchcraft and astrology as demonic practices.
