The good folks at Catland in Brooklyn are planning casting a hex on Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh this Saturday, October 20. The ritual starts at 7PM and is held at Catland HQ at 987 Flushing Ave, Brooklyn, New York 11206. Their FB event page says:
“Please join us for a public hex on Brett Kavanaugh, upon all rapists and the patriarchy at large which emboldens, rewards and protects them. We are embracing witchcraft’s true roots as the magik of the poor, the downtrodden and disenfranchised and it’s 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.
“He will be the focal point, but by no means the only target, so bring your rage and and all of the axes you’ve got to grind. There will also be a second ritual afterward – “The Rites of the Scorned One” which seeks to validate, affirm, uphold and support those of us who have been wronged and who refuse to be silent any longer.
“50% of the event proceeds will be donated to charity:
“25% to the Ali Forney Center and 25% to Planned Parenthood.
“Please note that no one will be turned away for lack of funds.”
The HuffingtonPost ran a feature on this working, stating, in part:
“Dakota Bracciale, a Brooklyn-based witch who is organizing the Oct. 20 event, said the witches see the hex as a radical act of resistance that continues witchcraft’s long history as a refuge and weapon for the ‘oppressed, downtrodden and marginalized.’
“’Witchcraft has been used throughout history as a tool and ally for people on the fringes of society who will not ever really get justice through the powers that be,’ Bracciale told HuffPost. “So they have to exact their own justice.”
Bracciale, who organized three hexes against President Donald Trump last year, said the ritual is meant to be cathartic for victims of sexual assault. Kavanaugh will apparently be a focal point for the hex, but not the only target. ”

Now, I seem to recall that Trump and the GOP were shockingly ineffectual in promoting their agenda in 2017, and it appeared that perhaps the monthly Dark Moon binding spells that a group of Wiccans had announced might have been work. Then “BAM” suddenly things shifted and Trump and comp were firing on all fours. It’ll be interesting to see the results of this working.
Kavanaugh, of course, identifies as a Roman Catholic, but considering GOP antipathy towards Pope Francis due to his very public stances on social and economic inequality and enviromental issues… don’t expect Frank to be sending a team of exorcists to help him out.
PS I note from their website that the expressly welcome Thelemites.
