Brooklyn witches are brewing up a swirl of spells that they plan to unleash on US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
An occult bookstore in Buchsick called Catland promises to curse the newly-minted justice as well as “all rapists” and “the patriarchy” during the an Oct. 20 ritual that 1,000 have pledged to attend.
“He will be the focal point, but by no means the only target,” the event description reads. “So bring your rage and and all of the axes you’ve got to grind.”
The ritual is 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.”
Tickers are available for $10 each and half of the proceeds will go toward LGBT causes and reproductive rights.
